  1. Illustrator [ ' ] Tilde Key function

    1. When creating an object
      If you press the [ ` ] key and create an object, many objects will be created over time.

    2. When adjusting the pattern
      Press the [ ` ] key on the object to which the pattern is applied.
      Only the pattern is adjusted when using the move tool, rotation tool, or size tool.
      But this feature is missing in newer versions, available in CS5

  2. Pattern fill pixelation

    Zooming into an object filled with a pattern shows raster pixelation in the pattern. If you select the object and move it slightly or change its view, then the pattern is updated and looks vectored. This is annoying. I just want it to update and look clean when I am using the zoom tool.

  3. 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

  4. 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。

  5. 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…

  6. 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 ->…

  7. 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'…

  8. 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.

  10. 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.…

  11. Colors Get Stuck in the Adobe RGB Color Space When Switching From Adobe RGB to sRGB

    When I change the document color profile from sRGB to Adobe RGB and then back to sRGB, all the colors get stuck in the Adobe color space.

    How to reproduce the problem:

    1) Create an sRGB document with an R: 0 G: 255 B: 0 object.

    2) Assign the Adobe RGB color profile.

    3) Assign the sRGB color profile.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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

  16. 線と塗りが黒のテキスト選択時にカラーパネルを変更するとパネルの挙動がおかしくなる


    PC:Mac Studio M1 MAX / OS Ventura 13.4と13.5
    Illustrator:26.5.3と27.7で同じ現象を確認

    ②線と塗りにC0Y0M0K100が適応されているテキストを選択した状態で、カラーパネルをCMYKからグレースケールに変える。

    ③C0Y0M0K100からK100になる。
    ④見た目は黒だがカラーパネルはK=0になってしまっている。
     修正しようとするとオブジェクトが白になってしまう。

    補足:グレースケールからCMYKパネルに変更した時も黒から白になります。ちなみにアピアランス設定で塗りと色を黒にして同じ操作をすると問題なく黒のままでした。

    既出でしたら申し訳ございません、ご検証宜しくお願いいたします。

    According to the team, there was an issue because of live color preview, and it had to be disabled in 27.6.1. The team is working on fixing the issue at the earliest, and then the live color feature would be in the release with the fix.

  18. HEX code pasted as text adds a strange symbol at the end

    In the latest version of Illustrator we can press the hash number symbol in the Color panel (and Swatch Options dialog) to copy the code as text into buffer.

    However, a strange symbol gets added to the end of the text when you directly paste it on the canvas.

    It does not get pasted when you create a text object first. It does not get transferred to other apps, so I have no idea even what the character it is.

  19. Changing color doesn't work sometimes

    This bug goes long way back, as far as I remember using illustrator, both on PCs and Macs.

    Sometimes (usually in text objects, but not only), when I pick a different swatch to change an object's color, the color in the swatch palette changes, but the object's color remains the same.
    To resolve this, I have to choose "None" as the color, and then choose the color I want.
