  1. Vertical Adjustment in Transform pallet is working in reverse.

    The vertical adjustment of Transform Effect in the Appearance pallet is giving incorrect values (positive value for negative effects and negative value for positive effects). Menu path = Appearance Pallet/FX/Distort and Transform/Transform. In the second screen shot, the COPY of the red circle should be ABOVE the original by 300 pts according to the value in the vertical adjustment.

  2. Offset path preview not working

    Offset path not working 1 in 20 cases. When I type a word, expand it and then try to create an offset path, I cannot turn the preview of the offset path. When this happens and I confirm the offset path, I cannot ungroup the the original text and the offset path. When I try to ungroup it, the text becomes the original again. It is very frustrating. I've tried to turn of the GPU preview, I have turned off my mac several times and I have reinstalled the Illustrator itself. Nothing seems to work. I used the offset path…

  3. Symbols don't display when mapped onto 3D artwork - Illustrator 26.2.1

    MacOS 11.6.5 iMac - non-retina NVIDIA GeForce GTX 775M 2 GB - 32GB RAM
    Illustrator 26.2.1
    Hello, I'm trying to map a symbol onto a 3D extruded object (See attached) using the new 3D interface. All I see are some black lines. No matter which symbol (even my own), what scale or rotation I use, the display of the mapped symbol does not change?

  4. 3D Materials Broken shading on repeat shapes

    When using the new-ish 3D Materials fx on a group of shapes, some of which are aligned and repeating, the lighting and shading on one or more of the shapes breaks.

    There is a workaround of adjusting the position or corner radius of the shape(s) with the issue by an imperceptible amount. It took a lot of investigating to figure that out.

  5. Rendering with Noise Reduction enabled causes Illustrator crash

    Happens every single time. Disabling noise reduction fixes it. I am using an external GPU.

  6. Symmetry drawing issue with transform panel

    Illustrator CC 2020 (all releases) | Illustrator CC 2021 (all releases)
    Mac OS Catalina 10.15.7 and higher - Windows 10 (all version supported by Illustrator)

    Hello community,

    I’m writing to you to ask for your help or advice on a problem I’m facing in Illustrator.

    We use Illustrator a lot in the fashion industry to draw flat sketches, among other things.
    One of the drawing techniques we use is symmetry using an effect created in the Transformation panel (Effect/Distort and Transform/Transform).

    When this effect is applied to a group containing paths, it regularly happens that one of the symmetrical parts…

  7. Blend Modes Hotkeys are broken

    Illustrator allows users to set custom hotkeys for blend modes, in Keyboard Shortcuts > Tools, right in the very bottom.
    Aside from direct commands for each available blend mode, there are two contextual keys: Next Mode and Previous Mode.

    They don’t work as expected. Let’s make a simple test.
    1. Assign Shift+9 (displayed as 'Shift+(' — which is not correct, actually) for Previous and Shift+0 ('Shift+(') for Next blend mode.
    2. Put two colored shapes in a stack, to see what’s happening when you change modes
    3. Open Transparency panel, to see which mode is chosen (for some reason Properties…

  8. Outline stroke effect only works when applied first

    When applying Outline stroke and roughen to a stroke (in order to render its width irregular) you have to actually select Outline stroke from the menu before seleting roughen. It doesn't work when you just rearrange them in the appearance panel.

  9. Colour Variation when using "Darken" transparency

    Why am I getting a colour variation on screen when using the "Darken" mode in the transparency field.
    See attached illustrator Pdf.
    The "Substrate" spot colour has the "Darken" applied which is layered on top of the colour wedges.
    Should the colours of the wedges not display the same irrespective of whether "Overprint Preview" is on or off?

  11. 3D effect cropping text when raytrace is on

    When I apply a 3D effect on a text, the effect crops the borders of the text. This happens when the raytrace render is on.

  12. Bug eyedrop - contagocce

    the dropper sometimes does not detect the transparency of a layer.
    I have already checked in the dropper settings and the transparency is activated.
    after a short interval of time, on the same file, same levels, the dropper no longer detects the transparency but is limited to the appearance
    I report a bug to be fixed.

  14. 2020ファイルフォーマット、後方互換性の破壊

    iMac 27inch(2020/32GB/1TB/Corei5)
    macOS10.15.7

    リンク配置したJPG画像に対してエフェクトをかけると以前のバージョンのイラストレータ(ver.24およびver.25)でPGF部分を正常に認識できずにPDF部分より復元しようとする。

    再現手順
    1. ver.26.0.1にて新規ドキュメントを作成し、JPG画像を配置する。JPG画像自体は埋め込まずリンク画像としてあつかう。
    2. 配置画像に対して「効果→スタイライズ→ドロップシャドウ」のアピアランスを適用する。
    3. 2020形式で当該ファイルを保存。
    4. Illustrator2021にて当該ファイルを開くとネイティブ部分のデータを読み込めず、ダイアログが表示されPDF部分のデータよりリカバリを行おうとする。

    実際の結果
    旧バージョンにてIllustratorファイルを正常に開くことが出来ない。

    期待される結果
    2020形式で保存した場合、ver.24及び25にて従来のように正常にファイルを開くことができる。

    これはJPG画像をリンクとして配置したものにエフェクトを適用すると起こるようです。スタイライズのみならずトリムマークやPhotoshop効果等でも同様の症状が出ます。
    しかしながら、すべてのJPGで再現するわけではありません。条件を特定しようとしたのですが特定に至っていません。
    当該ファイルを添付いたしますので確認頂けると幸いです。

  15. Illustrator's Round Outline Bevel with Standard Lighting Causes Weird Shadow

    Added a custom "round outline" bevel with "standard" lighting and ended up with a weird shadow effect in the upper-right corner of the 'g' in this logo that I can't seem to get straightened out. It seems to be a bug in the overall process.

  16. ドロップシャドウの一部だけが解像度が低い

    macOS Catalina (Ver. 10.15.7)
    Illustrator 2021
    ラスタライズ効果設定の解像度が「350ppi」に設定されている状態で、複数箇所でドロップシャドウを使用しているファイルがあり、作業前はすべてのドロップシャドウが正しい350ppiの状態(表示)だったが、編集作業終了時に1箇所だけドロップシャドウの表示が、72ppi程度の解像度に変わっていた。
    色々と動作検証をしてみましたが同様の状態にできず、原因不明です。
    低解像度のドロップシャドウ部分は表示のみではなく出力した際も低解像度のままとなっており、ドロップシャドウ部分に変更を加えたり、コピペしたりすると正しい表示に戻るようです。

  18. Overprint and darken doesn't work properly when it doesn't exist a background color.

    Illustrator 25.4.1 (64 bit) in Windows 10

    When we use darken+overprint in objects that are over some background, we don't have a problem. But if we don't have a background it does the similar to a multiply appearance.

    Is there a way to fix this problem?
    Please see the photos attached.
