  3. dxcore.dll not found

    Illustrator won't open due to "dxcore.dll not found".
    I have been on forums and many people have posted about this.
    Seems to be an issue with the latest update as the posts are quite recent.
    Temporarily fixed by reinstall of Illustrator. As yet, have found no permanent solution.

  6. 縦組みテキストの行末にある、縦中横の括弧類のアキが不均衡

    縦組みテキストの中で、行末に縦中横の括弧類を配置することがあります。例えば「100gの水にとける物質の質量〔g〕」のような文です。

    その場合〔g〕の"〔"は50%アキ、"〕"は0%アキになり、文がセンターに揃わなくなります。縦組みの縦中横で括弧類が両端にあるとき、両方のアキが0%になるとありがたいです。

    環境

    • macOS 12.7.3(Apple Silicon)
    • Illustrator 2024(28.5.0) この仕様がいつからあるのかわかりませんが、少なくともCS6では再現します。

    再現手順

    1. 縦組みポイント文字に「100gの水にとける物質の質量〔g〕」と打つ
    2. 〔g〕に縦中横をかける

    期待する結果

    括弧はそれぞれアキ0%になり、文はセンターに揃います。

    実際の結果

    "〔"は50%アキ、"〕"は0%アキになり、文がセンターに揃わなくなります。

    回避策

    • 文字組アキ量設定をなしにすると各アキは50%になり、ひとまずセンターには揃う
    • 行末に縦中横でない文字を追加すると各アキは50%になり、ひとまずセンターには揃う
    • 行末にカーニング500を追加すると各アキは50%になり、ひとまずセンターには揃う

  7. Windows 11 Professional, Adobe Illustrator 28.5 64bit

    Bei der mehrfachen Verknüpfung eines Bildes in einem Dokument war es bisher möglich, wenn man das Bild aus dem Ordner in z.B. einen Ordner erledigt geschoben hat, auf alle anwenden einzustellen und man musste nur 1 x ein neues Bild aussuchen und verknüpfen und alle weiterenb gleichen Bilder im Dokument wurden automatisch getauscht. Das Fubktioniert leider nicht mehr.

  8. フォントのアウトラインを取ると中が塗りつぶされる

    あるフォント(DFP中太丸ゴシック)の「管理部 部長」をアウトライン化すると「部」の文字の一部が塗りつぶされる。添付参照。
    他のフォントや文字では発生しない(自分が調べた限りです)
    現象はwindows版のイラレでのみおこり、同じファイルをMacのイラレで開いても起こりません。

    win10/イラストレーター28.5

    ※イラレCS2でも起きませんでした

  9. Linked Files Dialog Missing "Apply to All" checkbox

    I use templates that automatically populate a page with a given linked file. When I open the template to print business cards 20x per page, it used to pop up saying it couldn't find the file and ask me to re-link the file. I could then choose the "Apply to All" checkbox, re-link the file, and it would fill the entire page with that file. With Illustrator 28.5, that option is now missing (see screen capture here). The option to "Apply to All" is completely gone.

  10. Bug - Blank Workspace

    When I open an AI file there seems to be a 80/20 chance that it will not display properly. As the file is opening I can see everything but the moment it's fully loaded the workspace goes completely blank (gray without an artboard). I can still see toolbars and can move around the workspace. I can even select all and delete unseen assets but I can't draw new ones.

    I have to close and reopen the file multiple times until it happens to show up. I've already tried:
    • Resetting Preferences
    • Uninstalling and reinstalling Illustrator
    • Renaming the UXP/other…

  11. Tracking of the first character shifts the alignment of the next tab stop

    en_US

    When tracking is applied to the first character of a text frame, the alignment of the next tab stop will be shifted from the correct position depending on the amount of tracking.

    Only the tracking of the first character and the next tabstop are affected, not if kerning or akiRight is applied. After the target tab stop, the position will be correct.

    This bug seems to have occurred in Illustrator 2020, as it is not reproduced in Illustrator CC2019(23.1.1).

    Environment

    • macOS 12.7.3(Apple Silicon)
    • Illustrator 2020(24.3.0)〜2024(28.5.0)

    Steps to reproduce

    1. Open the attached file trackingtabstop2019.ai in Illustrator 2020 or…

  15. Text gets launched into the ether

    When moving text in any sort of way (keyboard, click and drag), it would completely disappear from the artboard and launch itself either to the top left corner of the boundary or way outside to the light grey area. Screenshot of the latter is attached. The text outline/boundary box shows up where it is supposed to be on the artboard, but it is untouchable and out of bounds.

    Copying and pasting the text seems to have temporality fixed the issue. It's not the biggest problem, just kind of funny and a little annoying after the 5th time.

  16. Dimension tool doesn't measure correctly

    So, I went to measure a dieline with the Dimension tool and it measured 9". However, when i selected the dieline and went to the Properties it said it was 8.5". When I actually printed it out and measured it, it was 8.5". This tool is not working correctly. See attached images for further explanation/verification.

    Maybe I am doing something wrong? Can't figure out what that would be though. Thank you for looking into this!

    The problem was in the '0' picked as the Precision value in Dimension Tool Options instead of default '0.00'. If you have this value changed by itself, without you ever changing it manually — please comment.

  17. Dimension markers on drawings are not displayed when opening dxf files in Illustrator 2024

    When drawing data exported from CAD software by dxf conversion is opened in Illustrator 2024, dimension line markers are not displayed. 2021 displays them. This may be a bug.

  19. Bugs when saving PDF files: Adobe Illustrator has stopped working

    When saving a file as Ai or PDF, it often happens that Illustrator hangs/stops working and displays the message: Adobe Illustrator 2024 has stopped working. Please verify the error, because we cannot save projects, sometimes it works, but most of the time the program crashes.
