  3. Text on a path doesn't display or export properly

    I am working in Illustrator 2024 on my work laptop running Microsoft Windows 10 Enterprise (I've had this same issue in illustrator 2023).

    I am able to type on a path, but then usually once I exit the file and then re-open it the text is no longer visible. I can locate the text in the layers panel which has been my work around. I'll find the text in the layers panel, target it, cut, and then paste in place. This will make the type visible again.

    Sometimes the text will be visible when I'm getting ready to export, or…

  4. Center of rotation changes position

    1. Win 11

    2. Version 28.1

    3. Trying to rotate a path from a custom rotation location by entering the rotation as a value, not manually.

    4. I'd expect that you can rotate from any given position by entering rotational values. As it is, your selected rotation position will instead default to center.

    5. Video attached.

    Summary
    When you select a custom position to rotate a shape from, it only works if you manually rotate the object. You can't select a custom position and then type in a rotational value via enter or double-clicking on the rotate tool.

  5. Windows 11 enhance pointer precision

    If Windows 11 mouse setting "enhance pointer precision" is off, then Smart Guides and Snapping will not work in Adobe Illustrator v28.
    Turning it back on will "fix" the Smart Guides/Snapping, but it'd be nice if we could turn this off and still have Illustrator do what Illustrator should do.

  8. Outline Mode Breaks display when toggling in and out of it.

    I found that when I go into outline mode and then toggle the layers off of it it breaks my display a little bit. It fixes itself if I just undo the toggling and then Cmd Y to turn it off that way but it'd be nice not having to do that.

  9. Illustrator often fails to build a smooth blend for paths with mismatched number of anchors

    Take a look at the file attached and watch the images attached.
    Two curves are blended: one has 4 anchors, another one has 5 anchors.
    The blend Ai build has weird irregular slits in the middle.

    If you expand the blend and select problematic anchors, you’ll see that positions are correct, but some handles get interpolated wrongly.

    This happens often in many other scenarios.
    The current workaround is to add more points to blend, trying to guess and control which point get paired with another.
    Another workaround is to cut curves in pieces and blend in chunks.

  10. Envelope Distort, Layers, and Illustrator Performance Bug

    I've recently come across a bug with the envelope distortion tool. The bug happens when I use the Make with Warp effect on text. When this is applied, all the layers and sub-layers get frozen with no ability to see the thumbnail preview or to open or close any of the layers. This also affects the ability to hide or preview any layer, lock or unlock, and/or select anything in the layers.
    This also causes Illustrator to run very high ram while causing unresponsiveness and difficulty in processing and sometimes the inability to save files.

    So far, the work-a-rounds that…

  11. Add an option for the Transform effect to use visible bounds of a clipping object

    Transform effect is one of the most powerful thing Ai has, compared to whole Repeats functionality. It’s versatile, it works with anything (unlike Repeats).

    It has some flaws though, and one of them is the fact it always operates on the overall bounds of the objects, even if it is clipped. It can be useful for some cases, but most of the time we treat objects differently.

    Check the image attached.
    This combination of effect options applied to a clipped ellipse should produce a result like the green one at thee right... instead, the object is reflected from the right…

  13. Radial Repeat does not have the angle value exposed anywhere

    We can control the number of instances, the exact radius, but the only way to define an angle is the round knob on canvas — which does not get dragged when you disable the bounding box, and which does not react when one holds Shift to constrain the angle.

    Eyeballing is not the only way people create illustrations, you know.

  14. Bounding Box outside path and wrong dimensions

    After 22 years of using Illustrator, the bounding box does not works anymore as it was used to.
    When I draw a square of 10mm x 10mm with a centered path of 0,5mm the bounding box was always visualized precisely over the path and the dimensions of the square are 10x10mm
    Since yesterday (01.18.2024) the bounding box is visualized outside the path and the dimensions are 10,5 x 10,5mm
    Hope that is only a bug and not a feature

  16. Eyedropper doesn't work on vector groups and bitmaps

    Eyedropper has stopped working with 1) groops 2) nonvector images (for instance, photos). This is extremely inconvenient and didn't exist in previous versions.

  17. Illustrator highlights anchors on mouse over when anchors are below other objects

    Mouse hints sometimes don't accurately communicate what the user is about to do

    As an example of the problem, create one rectangle with a fill, then create a second rectangle with a fill that encompasses one of the points of the first rectangle. Then, using the direct selection tool, hover over that point. The mouse hint indicates that the user is about to select that point. Click, and the second rectangle will be selected instead, because it is over top of the point.

    If that point can't be selected in this way, the mouse hint shouldn't make it appear as…

  18. Artwork moves separately from its artboard when Undo is called

    when you move an artboard and have 'move artwork with artboard' checked in the properties panel (and in preferences) everything works going from point A to B. Unfortunately when you want to undo your work and use the key command 'command z' the artboard moves back to its' original location but the artwork does NOT. you have to use 'command z' several more times for the artwork to reposition itself to its original position. This makes no sense. why are 2 items that were moved at the same time in one pass not reposition themselves (back to pt. A) in…

  19. Incorrect line weight scaling after vertical reflect command

    With "Scale Strokes & Effects" turned on in preferences, using the transform panel to change the length of a line after it has had the vertical reflect command used on it will incorrectly scale the line weight.
    Attached images show the scaling behaviour after the vertical reflect command has been performed.
