  1. Adding assets to Asset Export

    Illustrator 2018 is not letting me create a single asset from ungrouped layers. In the previews version the functionality was simple, you just select as many ungrouped layers and it would create a single asset.

    Is this is a new fancy bug?

    Hi Paul,

    You can create single asset from un-groupped layers by holding Opt/Alt key while adding the asset.

    This is intended change in behaviour in Illustrator 2018, creating multiple assets in a single add operation was not possible earlier.

    Thanks

  4. Sizing Glitch

    I have updated my Photoshop and Illustrator programs but when I boot them up to see the home screen where I would like to see "new" "open" and previous projects, I am greeted by a glitched window that, no matter what size I try to make it, will always fail to work. I have tried countless times and have only run into this problem with the new update. at first I had thought it was an issue with my monitor but soon realized that even with two different monitors hooked up (including the computer one) I get a glitched window…

  5. Pasting non english text from Word

    v. 22.0.0
    iMac 2017 High Sierra

    Pasting some Russian or Chinese text from word, in my case, and then trying to change the font, collapses the font samples popup menu so I am unable to do it.

    I figured it was some formatting the text had from the word file because the same scenario but with unformatted text from TextEdit app, didn't trigger the bug.

    Still it is very frustrating having to copy my texts to TextEdit first!

  6. Illustrator CC/Windows- When selecting multiple type boxes and lines it randomly deselects the group.

    When trying to align un-grouped lines and text boxes, it will deselect before I am able to move anything. I've updated to the most current version available (21.0.2) and reset preferences and am still having the same issue.

  7. different line thickness for rotated and unroted objects

    I combined 2 horizontal bars with one vertical bar in the middle, resembling the Latin 'I'. Bar thickness was 7pix. In fields of many of these objects the unrotated I's look like having thicker bars compared to the rotated, there the bars are slim. Aliasing errors?

  8. Bitmaps not coping over from Ai to Xd in version 2018, had to revert to 2017.

    Fix version 2018 to also copy bitmaps with vector art in Ai and past it directly in Xd, as with version 2017.

  9. Copying and Pasting Text from a Word Doc instantly crashes Illustrator

    I'm using the latest version of Adobe Illustrator on Windows 10. After my first crash, I re-opened Illustrator and created a new document. Before doing anything else, I switched over to the .docx file I had open in WPS Writer and copied some of the text that was there to my Clipboard. Once I switched back to Illustrator, clicked on the artboard and pressed Ctrl+V, Illustrator immediately stops responding and crashes.

  10. Dell Canvas Pen Dysfunction

    I've had pretty consistent issues getting the Dell Canvas and Illustrator to play nice with each other, and it's gotten totally out of control with version 2018. Although some pen functionality has improved, there's one bizarre roadblock... there's a good 7 second delay when selecting objects with the selection tool (which can be cut short by moving the mouse). Using my finger directly on the touch screen works fine, but the pen is almost unusable for this reason.

    Most likely cause would be graphics driver on your machine. Please upgrade graphics drivers to see it resolves the issue. If it still does not. Please get in touch with us at sharewithai@adobe.com or any of the other support channels – https://helpx.adobe.com/support.html .

  12. AI 18 won't launch

    I upgraded to the new AI18 from CC and it fails to launch on startup. It fails at the point it is initializing the plug-ins. I am using a Surface Pro 2 with Windows 10. AI17 worked fine and reinstalled and it still works. Any help would greatly be appreciated.

  14. Save command does not include latest edits

    Illustrator 2018. First day using this and its extremely buggy, while working on a drawing, everytime I hit save it takes the file back several steps (like a shortcut for multiple undo's). What makes this even more annoying is that you cannot access any redo. Its as though hitting save deletes the latest memory cache of the changes you've made in the previous 10 minutes.

  17. right click menu option silliness

    Why, when i right click on an object to bring up the menu and go to a submenu that has an arrow pointing to the right, the submenu opens up on the left? It has done this since i upgraded from CS6 and seems silly... the only time it opens in the direction of the arrow is if you are working on something on the left side of monitor... which is also silly since i prefer to work more or less in the wide open areas of my monitor ;)

  18. Error on Launch: "There is no disk in the drive" -

    I figured out that I only get this error when my USB3 memory card reader is connected to my computer, but it is ridiculous. I have to click cancel 30+ times in rapid succession and then Illustrator will launch, but I can't find ANYWHERE in Illustrator that is referencing my E:/ drive - HELP!
