  2. Drop shadows appear lighter in v28.1

    Drop shadows appear lighter in version 28.1 compared to previous versions.

    Applying a drop shadow and opening the same file side-by-side in two versions makes this clear. Both shadows have the same settings, files have the same colour settings and profile, and are displayed on the same monitor.

    The example images show version 28.1 and 27.9, but the change is evident between 28.0 and 28.1.

  3. AI CC V 28.1 Windows 10 Extrusion (3D and materials) no more working for some objects

    I am no more able to complete the extrusion of a disc object for which I previously removed parts of it using the pathfinder substraction tool. Substraction is working well, but extrusion is not. Once started, the extrusion process does not complete. I had to revert to Illustrator 28.0 to make it work.

  4. Width tool started work weird after update 27.9

    After this update, width tool on closed shapes instead of acting like they are shapes with continuous edges, it cuts the width at a point.

    I use width tool a lot and this is problematic.

    Oh and in some cases width point not showing.

  5. 合成フォントを使うとaiファイルのPDFデータが空白になる

    「PDF互換ファイルを作成」をチェックONにして保存したaiファイルには「ネイティブデータ」と「PDFデータ」の2種類の異なるデータが格納されています。

    Illustrator環境設定「ファイル管理 > バックグラウンドで保存/書き出し」をONにして合成フォントを使うと、aiファイルの「PDFデータ」が空白(PDFのコンテンツストリームが空)になってしまう場合があります。なお「ネイティブデータ」は正常に保存されます。

    ●PDFデータの確認方法
    拡張子「ai」を「pdf」に変更してAcrobatで開く。拡張子「ai」のままAcrobatで開いてはいけない。
    または、InDesignドキュメントにリンク配置する。
    または、macOSならクイックルックで表示する。

    再現手順

    ●前準備
    1. Illustratorを起動
    2. 環境設定「ファイル管理」の「バックグラウンドで保存」「バックグラウンドで書き出し」をチェックONにする
    3. 合成フォントをすべて削除する
    ●再現操作
    1. 新規ドキュメントを作成
    2. 合成フォントを新規作成
    3. テキストツールで文字を入力
    4. 2の合成フォントを3に適用する
    5. ファイル保存
    6. 合成フォントの設定を変更する(ウェイト変更など)
    7. ファイル保存

    2020(24)は5の時点でアラートが表示される。
    2021(25)は5の時点でアラートが表示される。
    2022(26)は5の時点でアラートなく保存されPDFデータが空白になる。

    2023(27)は7の時点でアラートなく保存されPDFデータが空白になる。

    対処方法

    環境設定「ファイル管理」の「バックグラウンドで保存」「バックグラウンドで書き出し」をチェックOFFにする。ただし抑止はされるが完全に防止できるわけではない。

  6. v27.8.1 - Random files having images corrupted upon file save

    Mac OS 13.5.1 / Illustrator 27.8.1 / Apple Studio M1 Max

    After updating from 27.7 > 27.8.1 files saved in native .ai format (pdf compatibility) with embedded images are randomly becoming corrupted (does not happen to all documents). The files will open up in illustrator just fine, and appear normal, but the image preview and rasterizing into photoshop will show the included images with blank white space, or areas of garbled distortion. The corrupted files will also fail to process on our RIP. This has appeared on 2 different computers immediately following the update. This has been alleviated completely by…

  7. "Replace all" Linked images

    Since new version 27.8, when I reopen an AI file with missing images, I no longer have the "Apply to all" checkbox, the new version allows "skip all" but no longer "replace all"

  8. Illustrator desktop version 27.8 Error message [UKCO] after update on 8-3-2023

    I get the following error message upon starting up Illustrator desktop.
    "The operation cannot complete because of an unknown error. [UKCO]"
    The app opens and I can create a new doc but the message keeps popping up.
    For now I'm reverting back to a previous version.

  9. Type on path positioning is now quantized and not smooth

    Take a look at the GIF.

    In Illustrator 2022 users were able to position start and end marker brackets with practically infinite precision, smoothly, even for a long, single-bezier path.

    In 2023 these markers are quantized to 0.005 increments! For a long, single-bezier path, this creates laughably large steps (like, almost the width of an entire glyph).
    Note that the quantization is per bezier segment, so if you put text on a path that has many anchor points, it won't be as noticeable. But adding loads of points to a path makes it much less editable later, of course, so…

  10. Application name in dialogue box contains strange character

    Illustrator version 27.6 shows strange characters in dialogue box.
    The app name is $$$/GeneralStr/196=Adobe Illustrator.
    It feels not good, to use an app with a strange behavior like this.

  11. Color Picker lets objects disappear in Outline Mode and in Exports!

    When you use the Color Picker to change the color of texts, then this will lead to the problem, that every object of the same layer disappears in the Outline Mode AND much more worse: in the export.
    I made a video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WBYTfLfOpRU

    1. Create a new file.
    2. Create one ore more text objects. And some other path objects too, if you like.
    3. Use the Color Picker (!! not any other color tool) to change the color of a text.
    4. Go to the Outline Mode (ctrl+y) and see that every object seems to be invisible.
    5. Try to export the file (Export…

  12. Illustrator fails to export all text into final pngs or jpegs

    I have been exporting images with text layers and I've noticed Illustrator seems to indiscriminately not export certain lines of text (not layer groups to be clear, but random lines of text). I don't know how to replicate this issue because it appears random, but I did include pngs of the file that I had this issue with most recently.

  13. Blank screen on start up and missed new features on new v. 27.6 (English language on Windows 10)

    Just updated to the new version 27.6 in English language on Windows 10 pro, at the start up the home screen is totally blank (only the layout color instead of open, new file etc. buttons). Anyway I'm able to open files o new files from the menu. There is no trace of the new Ai features or of the other improvements coming with this new release. I tried both update from the previous version and install from scratch after cancelled the previous one but with no results.

  14. Version History Panel not displaying any content (previous versions, bookmarked, etc.)

    Problem:
    Version history panel is not displaying any content for my cloud documents (.aic), such as previous saved states, bookmarked, or even a prompt that it cannot save or no states exist. This is happening for all my existing AND new files. This only started happening on the latest illustrator update.

    My setup:
    Macbook Pro M1, OS Ventura 13.3.1
    Adobe Illustrator 27.4.1

    What I've tried to do:
    - Restart Creative Cloud and Macbook
    - Create and save a new .aic file

  17. Windows版27.3.1で現行版MS-IME利用時にCtrl+ホイール移動でフリーズ

    Windows版27.3.1+MS-IMEが現行版(旧バージョンにしていない)の場合、Ctrl+マウスホイールによる横スクロールを実行するとフリーズします

    1. Windowsの設定で、日本語IMEの全般設定で「以前のバージョンのMicrosoft IMEを使う」をOFFの状態(デフォルト状態)
    2. 27.3.1で新規ファイルを作成する
    3. Ctrl+マウスホイールで横スクロールを繰り返す

    この操作のみでフリーズし、一切の操作がきかなくなります。

    「以前のバージョンのMicrosoft IMEを使う」をONにすることで回避はできますが、従来の27.2ではこの問題は起きていませんでした。

    I am happy to share that we have fixed this bug in our latest release – 27.4.1 which is available worldwide now.

    Going forward, our goal is to fix as many top User-Voice bugs as possible and as frequently as possible. Given the nature of the fixes, some of the bugs will take a longer time to fix, but we are on it.

    You can update to the latest release using Creative Cloud desktop App: https://helpx.adobe.com/in/creative-cloud/help/creative-cloud-updates.html

    Thank you for all the feedback. Keep it coming!

  19. Illustrator suddenly switching to CPU preview, GPU preview greyed out

    My little research has shown that the preview mode changes when zooming if the cmyk document contains cmyk images. In a cmyk document with rgb images or an rgb document with rgb/cmyk images, there is no gpu to cpu preview switching when zooming. To reproduce the bug, the document must include multiple images in order to impact performance during scaling. My system: i5 8400, 32 Gb, GTX1650 with latest Studio Driver installed, Asus PA329C, windows 11 Build 22621.1265, Illustrator 27.3.1 Here's what it looks like on my system.

  20. Zoom with Alt+wheel is way too sensitive in new v27.3 to the point of being unusable

    This has just started with the new update to v27.3 using the Alt and the scroll wheel now causes intermittent massive jumps in zoom. Updated all my Logitech software. Running latest everything so reverting to 27.2 as this makes Illustrator unusable. How on earth did this get through any sort of testing?
