  1. Illustrator freezes all the time

    I am not able to use Illustrator at all. I have updated to the 2018 version. Every time I want to create new project or open existing one the program freezes. No matter if I have GPU Performance option on or off.

  3. Saving PDF Security override by gmail

    Dear sir or madam,

    I've noticed as i saved PDF in CS6 to send to a Client and i used password protection with no permissions (printing, copying....)

    And the thing is, if you open the email att. in this case My protected PDF in gmail preview - you can print it with no problems. And if you print to a PDF file, you get the same PD minus the Password protection.

    I think this could be a big issue.

    So i see google's gmail now as an easy fool proof password hack tool.

    hope i helped somehow with this.

  4. When clicked on file>export, the menus closes.

    Operating System: MAC High Sierra

    When clicking on export under FIle menu the menu closes, This is not expected as this might happen by mistake before the sub menu has opened.

    This is also not consistent with photoshop file>export.
    In photoshop when clicked on export menu under file, the menu will not get closed.

  5. Illustrator CC 2017 crashes computer on macOS 10.13 High Sierra

    I didn't know there were serious compatibility issues between Adobe CC and macOS 10.13 High Sierra until after I upgraded.

    Within seconds of launching Illustrator it freezes my entire machine and my only option is a hard reboot.

    Please provide a status update on when this issue will be fixed. I rely on CC for my job and will have to migrate back to 10.12 Sierra in the interim.

  7. Many Many issues with Illustrator 2018

    1. Ever since I've updated to Illustrator 2018, the program is always lagging and becomes non-responsive. Something simple like selecting "T" for a new text line will stall my program. I've attached my computer specs.

    2. The alt shortcut for brush tool no longer selects color with the eye drop tool. I have to manually select the eyedropper, then switch back to the brush tool which is very frustrating when I need to do this hundreds of times a day!

    3. The startup time has increased dramatically. Showing a blank screen for a couple minutes until the illustrator home screen finally appears. Also…

  8. Effects on objects same and different colour issues

    Illustrator 2018 CC 22.0.1
    Mac OS El Capitan 10.11.6

    As per video, when setting multiple objects with the same colour (Global or not) and then applying any Effect, there seems to be no Effect applied where it worked in previous versions of Illustrator. There also seems to be no effects sometimes on objects with different colours.

  9. Colour changes on Multiple Objects in Color Panel issues

    Illustrator 2018 CC 22.0.1
    Mac OS El Capitan 10.11.6

    As per video, when trying to change colour of multiple objects in the Color Panel when colours aren’t set to Global, under CMYK settings I enter 0,0,0,0, hit Enter/Return on my keyboard, and nothing changes.

    When the multiple objects all have colours that are set to Global, the Color Panel has other odd issues. Selecting CMYK, greyscale brings up no settings, but RGB, HSB does, though odd settings show up.

  10. Character Properties Disappears in "Draw Inside"

    Can't access the Character Properties (like changing font/size/line height) while in "Draw Inside" mode. I have to create/edit text in my main layer and cut/paste it in the "Draw Inside" object.

  12. Panel Options not displaying on click and hold

    In the panel selection for all the tools (natively on the left) as a click and hold on a tool (ie. The rectangle tool) it does not show any options to select anything else such as the ellipse tool. This issue exists on all of the tool buttons as well as trying to selecting font sizes, in the character panel. Another example is the transparency dropdown. The dropdown just doesn't show up when I click it.

  13. Align to Artboard: X and Y position not established within the active artboard

    Illustrator CC 22.0.1

    Align to Artboard: X and Y position not established within the active artboard but retains the global X and Y position.

    When selecting and copying the X position of vertex (A) on active artboard (A), then activating another artboard (B) and selecting vertex (B). When pasting the X position for vertex (A) from artboard (A) to vertex (B) on artboard (B) it pastes the global X position. The previous version retained the local artboard X position when align to artboard was activated. Which is very helpful in maintaining consistency between artboards.

  14. Artboard edge shows behind an object of the same size as the artboard

    1. CC 22.0.1 (32-bit)
    2. I'm creating a favicon, I started out at 164 px by 164 px and used Shift + Alt to resize it to 50 px by 50 px. Then I changed the size of the Artboard to 50 px by 50 px.
    3. I expected everything to line up and look right.
    4. A small white edge of the Artboard is visible on the right side of the drawing

  19. Error on Artboard/Workspace

    1. Adobe Illustrator CC 22.0.1
    2. Tried working on a new artboard to learn interface and immediately started getting this problem - this happens when I select an object and try to move it. Then I am unable to move anything properly. I have been unable to find any settings that may have caused this. I uninstalled and reinstalled and have received this same problem on different files and art boards.
    3. A triangular cut out that appears on the artboard and causes the objects to malfunction when manipulated.

    If I try to create something new, it disappears and then shows up again.

    Need More Info  ·  Anish Kumar responded

    Hi Love,

    sorry to hear that you are facing this issue. Can you please click on the little rectangle in the font name (below search button) and see the option selected?

    If it is “Search First Work Only”, change it to “Search Entire Font Name” and it will solve the issue.

    Thanks
