  1. Сompound Paths with Pattern Fill

    I encountered an issue where, after using the "Expand" command on Сompound Paths with using Pattern Fill, the pattern is duplicated several times.

    Can this be fixed?

  2. Recolor Artwork tool broken

    Mac Sonoma 14.2.1, Illustrator desktop 28.5 Recolor Artwork,
    1) I click on the arrow between current color and new color to prevent the tool from changing the current color but the tool is changing the color anyway and including it in the mix when rotating colors around from a color group.
    2) Two colors are in a current color row and I used to be able to drag one of them out to an empty row, but now when I attempt to drag just one of the two, they both move.
    I have tried closing the program and restarting program,…

  3. Pattern shifts when opening a SVG file

    When I try to open an SVG file with patterns, they seem to randomly shift. It might be an issue with the origin point, but I'm not sure. When I open the SVG file in Inkscape or an internet browser, everything appears fine. However, in Illustrator, the patterns always shift regardless of the settings and preferences.

  5. Converted text won't change color. Eyedropper nor manual change not working (even though "fill" panel picks it up)

    I tried resetting everything, and updated Illustrator, which didn't help. Then I installed the new one and told it to remove old versions. So I now have the new illustrator 2024, and eyedropper still doesn't work. Exact same bug between versions of illustrator.

    Note, it seems to specifically be happening with text, even after changed to outlines.

    I saw a release note that this had been fixed yesterday, but I am having the issue right now, with the brand new install.

  8. HEX Value can't overwrite spot colors in color palette

    I set a global color (Spot or process doesn't matter) but if I try to enter any code in the HEX value field, I'm not allowed to type anything. I must first convert the color to CMYK or RGB with the appropriate button and only at this point I'm allowed to type the code in the HEX field
    It would be much more practical to be able to insert the HEX code even without having to necessarily convert the color to CMYK or RGB first

  9. パターン作成時に幅と高さに0.0001mmの誤差

    基準点を中心にした状態でパターンを作成する際に、パターンオプションの幅と高さに0.0001mmの誤差が発生します。縦横比維持の選択を解除し数字を均一にしても、「オブジェクトにタイルサイズを合わせる」などの項目を選択することにより、また0.0001㎜の誤差が発生します。
    尚、基準点を左上にしているときは、このような誤差は発生しない。

  10. Mixed stroke colors become white when changing fills using CMYK spectrum in an RGB document

    There is a way to make objects loose their stroke colors in specific conditions.
    1. Create an RGB document
    2. Create two shapes
    3. Make them have same fill color, but different stroke colors
    4. Select both
    5. In Control panel Shift+click the arrow button next to the fill chip, to call the alternate UI with sliders and spectrum instead of Swatches view
    6. In this dropdown panel’s menu pick CMYK

    Strokes become white.

    This does not happen if the color mode in this panel is left RGB or HSB.
    Also, strokes become white if you pick a color in…

  11. Fill opacity, rgba color results in no color

    Released Version of Illustrator (28.0)
    Problem Description:
    I can change the opacity of an element fill using fill-opacity attribute or by adding the fill like this: fill="rgba(12, 12, 12, 0.5)". But seems rgba color is not recognizable by AI, we see such element as black. If we save this as svg (save as -> svg), we can see that such elements do not have color at all, that why we see them as black.
    Workaround: To avoid it we can use fill-opacity instead of rgba. But then, if we save such svg in the way like file -> export ->…

  12. Preview checkbox in swatch options does not enable the first time it is checked

    The 'Preview' checkbox in the swatch options does not work the first time it is enabled. Steps to replicate:

    1. Create an object and apply a swatch to it.
    2. With the object selected, double-click the swatch to open the swatch options.
    3. If the 'Preview' checkbox is ticked, untick it, close the options window and then open it again.
    4. Tick the 'Preview' checkbox
    5. Adjust the swatch using the colour sliders

    Result: the object does not change on canvas to reflect the swatch definition while the window is open
    Expected result: the object changes on canvas to reflect the swatch definition

    Unticking 'Preview'…

  13. Fill/stroke color changes won't work despite restart/Illustrator being up to date (windows 11)

    On my PC with Windows 11 that's up-to-date (as is Illustrator), I've lost the ability to change fill and stroke color even when a shape is selected, and even after rebooting my laptop. Note the orange-circled areas in the screen capture for reference.

  15. Pattern problem when making PDF

    Artist created an ILL file in 27.9 version, using Pattern Swatches and also used a transparency on that pattern in the art. When PDF is created and opened, I get an error:
    "An error exists on this page. Acrobat may not display the page correctly. Please contact the person who created the PDF document to correct the problem."

    The pattern does not display at all along with this display in Acrobat.

    I did a test and replaced my version of 27.9 ILL to version 27.0. And it works perfectly. PDF does not flag an issue and RIPS properly as well.…

  17. No overprint objects but a dash appears in Attributes panel

    Documents that have no fill or stroke objects set to Overprint show a dash in the Attributes panel checkbox that makes you suspect there is overprint. Confusing, nothing should be checked if nothing is set to overprint. The example show a dash for fill when the image is selected and a faint dash for stroke when the text is selected.

  18. Color Picker changes the settings when saved

    I am tweaking a color in Illustrator CC. I make slight adjustments to the Saturation and Brightness controls and hit Save. When I open the color picker again, the Hue, Saturation and Brightness controls are all shifted slightly. The Hue is especially disconcerting as it appears to be shifting left with every save.

  19. Livetracing Bitmaps gives results with random shades of black

    Up until recently, if I used the Livetrace and Expand command on a bitmap it would produce results with only pure white and pure black, as you would expect. Now it randomly assigns values to every piece of what should be black. Instead of 100% black they are 99.29% or 99.67%. Normally I would select one piece, select all by color and move it. Now I need to click on every single piece and apply black to them. Very tedious.

  20. RGB colors keep changing on their own

    RGB colors keep changing on their own. File is open and after a while the rgb colours have changed. They become duller and keep needing to be reset. I have set the file up in rgb web mode. Have checked the color profile to rgb also. This makes illustrator almost unusable. Can't send file to client without having to go through every color to make sure it hasn't shifted. Serious bug issue that has been reported on before in 2022
