  1. 'Puppet Warp Tool' delaying access to 'Free Transform Tool' due to load time

    Noticed in the latest update that when 'pressing & holding' the Puppet Warp Tool to access the Free Transform Tool underneath would cause the Puppet Tool to first apply itself to chosen artwork, render its mesh, etc. before displaying my option to select the Free Transform Tool. This causes up the 5 second delay each time I switch - very annoying for the default state. I encounter this about 3 times daily.

  4. Undo randomly groups texts

    After hitting undo a few times will cause a random text to be selected and cannot be unselected. I don't know which text has been selected either. Only way to find out is to direct select each text and try to edit them. That's the only way to exit out of the selection as well. I've found this problem over and over again.

  5. Spell Check doesn't understand what "Uncapitalized Start of Sentence" means.

    While running spell check, Illustrator doesn't seem to understand that a comma is not the end of a sentence, or that the word following the comma is the start of a new sentence. See attached screen shots.

    (running the version of Illustrator on Mac running OS 10.13.6)

  7. 2019 update. Worst update ever! Why? Why did you move and change all the tools?????? None of them make sense or are intuitive anymore.

    Illustrator provides two tool panels now: Basic (chosen by default) and Advanced (with all the tools, including plugin ones). This change was made to make Illustrator less clumped form the beginning and ease the learning process. You can read more about this here: https://helpx.adobe.com/illustrator/using/tools.html

    You can also access all the tools from the 'drawer' menu, by clicking the button with three dots at the bottom of any toolbar.

    As always, Ai doesn’t care much about our settings, and this time they forced this changes for everyone, not explaining the change directly in-app. Hope this gets improved.

  8. CC2019 Offset Path stuck in Inches

    Offset Path seems to be stuck in Inches in 23.0. I have the preferences all set to "points", yet when I try to use Offset Path, it's still displaying the offset amount in inches. This didn't happen until the upgrade to 23.0.

  11. CMD + D keys not working, and unable to rotate and copy object multiple times around object

    Trying to rotate object multiple times around a circle, but CMD + D not working. Also when using rotation box, after clicking 'copy', command box automatically exits without even clicking OK and i'm taken back to drawing board without being given option to copy object again.

  16. Panels load on different screens

    Hello!

    My operating System is 64 bit Windows 10 and I have the latest 2018 CC version of Illustrator.

    The setup: I am working on 2 4K Monitors. 1 is a 32" LG and the other is the 24" Wacom Cintiq Pro. (However, this happens regardless of what type of monitor you have). I don't spread my workflow between monitors like some people do,. I prefer to have browsing on one and my Illustrator workspace on the other. However, since I do work with a Ciintiq I very often swap my workspace from my Cintiq back to my monitor. Here…

  18. Offset Path-Transform Again (Crtl D)

    Using Offset Path to enlarge an object, works fine. When I use: Transform Again (Crtl D) to duplicate the same action and make another larger object it no longer works. It worked prior to Illustrator 2019 when I needed to make a concentric object. Please fix.

  19. Fonts problem

    After upgraded from version 2018 to 2019, the Chinese fonts won't preview properly. Now all I see are squares. It was fine in AI 2018.
