  1. Live Paint Dead

    Wow, I haven't seen AI get this slow and bad at basic vector work in years! (Just might be way too bloated.) Had to delete latest version 25.1 and go backwards just to get my day job done on time.

  2. New document size - selection problem

    When creating a new document, you cannot click into width or height box and select as one and overwrite - previously you could do this.

    You have to use backspace - incredibly irritating. Please fix.

  3. Scale tool does not remember previous percentage used

    Illustrator 24.2.1 scale tool does not remember the previously used scale setting as it used to do in previous iterations of Illustrator. When you Option click with the scale tool, the dialogue box now shows a random scale amount, sometimes a negative number, sometimes even too large for the tool to be used.

  5. Adobe Illustrator 2020 (24.1.2)-The latest updated version KEEPS CRASHING on MacOS Mojave

    Hi
    I'm having crashing issues with the simplest movements like dragging, changing the type sizes, accidentally double-clicking etc.
    First the screen freezes.
    Later everything goes blank/my screen sometimes goes full black and forced shutdown follows.
    I'm using Macbook Air - MacOs Mojave version 10.14.6. (1.6 GHz Intel Core i5/ 8 GB 1600 MHz DDR3).
    This is happening every time I open up AI without exception.
    Note: When I started my computer in safe mode-AI is working normally.
    What should we do?
    Thanks in advance.

  6. Fonts are not refreshed when right sided metrics are changed

    This issue happens in the context of editing the metrics of a font file multiple times (in order to view new metrics changes in realtime).

    Fonts will not always be refreshed to the latest version when overwriting a font file in the Adobe Fonts folder with a new updated version:

    • When a right sidebearing of a glyph is changed and the font regenerated, the font is NOT updated in Illustrator.

    • Whereas editing a left side bearing and regenerating the font will show the updated font with all edited metrics (both the new left & right sidebearings).

    Issue happens in all…

  7. delete anchor point tool selecting bottom object

    When two anchors of different objects are layered on top of one another, the delete anchor point tool will always select the bottom object, whether I have the top object selected or not. The add anchor point tool and direct selection will select the top object, but I want to be able to delete the anchor from the top object without having to go into isolation mode. This wasn't the case in the previous version.

  9. Duplicating an Artboard with art on it and then Undoing it, causes crash

    if you drag and artboard with art on it while holding option to duplicate, it duplicates fine, but if you Undo, the duplicated artboard remains and you can't delete. sometimes if you try and select the artboard illustrator will crash. the only way to update is to reopen the affected file.

  12. Save/Save As doesn't work in Action

    1. Make a new document
    2. Record a new Action for Save (CMD+S) and Save As (Shift+CMD+S), stop Action
    3. Do something in the document - Draw the rectangle for example
    4. Play Save/Save As Action
    5. Close the document (Attention!!! No warning about Save Changes!!!)
    6. Open the document

    Result: Opened document doesn't contain the rectangle.
    That means nothing happened with this document while Play Actions

    Illustrator ver. 24.0.2
    It is the critical issue and my suggestion to downgrade Illustrator to 24.0.1, if you use "Save/Save as" and "Close" commands in Actions in your work

  13. Saving always creates a .tmp file, can't see preview of the file and cannot import AI file to After Effects

    as title says, my Illustrator 2020 (24.0.1) always creates a .tmp file whenever i save. I cant see a preview of the file when viewed on Finder. Lastly, I can't import the files i created using AI 2020 to After Effects - it only shows a blank artboard.

    Files are saved with Create PDF compatible File ticked.

    I have also tried resetting the Adobe PDF joboption settings.

    So right now I have 2 AI's installed just so i can continue working with my files.

  15. Illustrator Not Holding Clipping Masks

    Hello. I'm not sure if this is just an "operator error" or if this is a bug in the new Illustrator 2020, but every time I reopen my AI file the clipping masks have been removed. Is there a fix for this? It started happening when I updated to 2020.

    Thanks in advance!

  19. Create new file dialog box lags

    When I'm working with multiple files, opening and closing, there are times where I copy an object to a new file. I use Command-N, but the dialog box lags and takes several seconds to show up. Is it trying to connect to something online? Why is there lag?

  20. text wrap image link

    AI 23.0.3 (64-bit) on Windows 10

    Automatic image update (if you change an image outside of AI it will ask if you want to update the image in you AI file) does not work when text wrap is on.
    The image has been masked to a shape then text wrap on this new shape.

    Hopefully this is a simple fix because I don't want to keep turning text wrapping off when I want to refresh the image.
