  2. Scatter brush rotation orientation to line.

    When using a scatter brush with rotation set to the line (not page) the vertical orientation will randomly flip. For instance, when I'm using the scatter brush to create a bush with stems and leaves pointing up (natural orientation), after creating the line and applying the scatter brush sometimes the brush will apply pointing down.

  3. Sudden problem with embedded bitmaps

    I use embedded bitmaps for additional texture in my illustration. Since recently updating to the newest version of Adobe Illustrator CC, suddenly I am encountering a lot of problems with these-- they print irregularly, and create glitches when saving to some formats, like pngs. I have never encountered problems like this before.

  4. Error message while launching Illustrator CC 2018

    This message in German occurs while launching Illustrator 2018. After saying OK, a fragmentary Applikation displays, which is not operational. It is completely buggy and blocks even Finder until it is being quit.
    "This process can't be completed, because an unknown message has occurred. [CANT]"
    I have to work with the 2017 version.

  6. Windows Panels resize at applications restart

    Not sure if this is a Windows issue or a new AI 2018 issue. The problem I am having with all 2018 Adobe products is that when I enter back into AI after restart my Window Panel properties are all collapsed even though my saved work-space is saved with all of them always expanded. This causes me to go through every window panel and expand it. Not a huge deal but super annyoing and a time waste. This is happening consistently. I am running Win10- pro with the latest AI CC update.

  7. EPS saving as AI or PDF bug

    Hi When saving an EPS file to either AI or PDF downloaded from a stock site I have had issues with both the on screen preview and print from InDesign. When I save it as an EPS again it appears to regain the proper appearance both on screen and in print. Is there a transparency issue when converting an EPS to AI or PDF?

  8. Illustrator CC 2018 (Mac) Crashes Affects ALL CC Programs

    illustrator CC2018 crashes about every third or fourth time I "Save AS" an EPS. Freezes immediately AND freezes any open CC programs. Have to Force Quit all to restart each. This is getting old, fast.

  11. Properties Panel Transform section uniform scaling UI bug [ Ai CC 2018 ]

    Hi,

    The Ai I'm running has this strange bug where upon making a new document the Transform section under the Properties Panel will have the 'Maintain W & H' lock activated; however the icon does not indicate as such. It will show the function as in active.

    So every time I were to scale an item with no intention of keeping it's initial proportions, the function will scale it proportionately.

    Another thing I've noticed is that if I enter a new value for either W or H then it will take that new value and add it to the initial…

  12. Type reverting & doing all sorts of weird things

    The new Illustrator's type feature behaves strangely. The font reverts to the 1 I chose previously when I do some things such as discard the Offset Path setting I've set for it it in the Appearance Panel.

  13. Bug star with a radius of 0.

    Since updating to #illustrator CC 2018, why it is now impossible to create a star with a radius of 0. I am a French trainer and it is now impossible to create a star with a radius of 0. I tested on PC and MAC and there is always this problem.

  14. Illustrator opening as trial and not recognizing current subscription

    when opening illustrator from CC app manager or directly from start menu,
    illustrator does not allow to open full version even though I have pro subscription. There is a button to buy now but that just takes me to purchase an additional subscription which I'm paid up for. I really need to use Illustrator soon as possible. Thanks

  15. Selection tolerance issues using pen

    When I'm using Surface Pen on my Surface Book Illustrator randomly starts to select nearest top objects instead of the highlighted one. It starts randomly but very often. Opening preferences and checking-unchecking anything then pressing OK temporary fixes this issue. If i'm using touchpad - everything is ok.
    I've already reported this bug to Windows Ink Team (windowsink@microsoft.com), but am duplicating it here, because i'm not sure what is causing this issue. Windows 10 and Adobe apps were updated on the same day for me and both of them have a lot of issues, not only when i'm…

  16. zoom

    When snap to grid is on, it will only create new text. It won't select existing text for editing - probably because it isn't on the grid. This never used to happen before the latest update.

  20. Can´t save an open document

    Illustrator CC v 21.1.0 (64bit)

    When I am working a current, open document and I click Save in the File menu, Illustrator say´s it can´t save because the file is open. Well, obviously it is open, because I am working on it!

    I have to Save As... and rename the file, (I usually add the date and time).

    This is obvioulsy just a a little bug in the new update. Let me know if I can help.

    I attach the message I get.

    Actually... Now Illustrator has frozen! So I can´t attach the message.
