  1. Intertwine bug when export as pdf X4

    mac os 12.6, illustrator 2023
    create 2 intertwining circles, save as PDF X4 with the Illustrator default settings and you get a bitmap instead of vector data..
    by choosing "compatibility: acrobat 8" the problem does not appear.

  2. Illustrator 27 packaging bug

    Mac OS Big Sur 11.7
    Adobe Illustrator 27
    Mac mini M1

    Package command destroys filenames and replaces links with others. That's catastrophic for my job. Please fix it as soon as possible.
    Also, could not upload files for helping you reproduce the issue.

  3. When exporting an intertwined object to PDF the selection trace is preserved in the saved file

    Mac OS Ventura 13.0.1 (22A400)
    Illustrator 27.0.1

    The reproduction scenario is as following:
    1. Create two overlaying rings (I used pathfinder to make the hole in the middle).
    2. Select both objects
    3. Go to Object-Intertwine-Make and select the target area
    4. Save in PDF

    Even if the Flatten transparency was selected (as suggested in https://illustrator.uservoice.com/forums/601447-illustrator-desktop-bugs/suggestions/45826375-intertwine-bug-when-export-as-pdf-x4 ), the tiny selection trace in the intertwined area can be viewed (see the attached file)

    This issue is fixed in the Prerelease version (available in Creative Cloud Desktop Prerelease section).

    Intertwine objects now get treated differently when expanded, and an extra copy get placed underneath the stack of clipped zones to eliminate seams PDF viewers display.
