  1. Dimension fields in new document window tab through in wrong order

    This is a really annoying mistake in Photoshop and Illustrator, probably others. When I make a new document, enter dimensions in the "width" field, then hit tab, it should move focus to "height." Instead, it moves to the units. This is just wrong. Seems like a minor nitpick, but this is just one of many small UI mistakes that make these expensive programs harder to use than they should be. Please fix ASAP. Thanks.

  2. Imported SVG: y coordinate of coordinate space translation is ignored

    In Illustrator 24.3.2, if I import an SVG file with the instruction
    transform=“translate(x y)”
    the y value reverts to zero when Illustrator displays the artwork.
    This appears to be fixed in version 25.4.1, however I am working with a critical, multi-user workflow, where we are not yet ready to advance to that version...

  3. Illustrator free transform bug.

    When I go to use free transform and I want to resize an object, it switches to rotate instead of resize.

    Compounding this I can be near the object but not close to the transform anchors and it will still register me as click the transform anchor.

    Frustrating as .

    very slow when exporting multiple PDFs. If I export page by page it works fine but when you switch to multiple PDFs at the same time the times become really long.

  5. PARM error with embedded image

    iMac OS Catalina 10.15.7
    Adobe Illustrator 25.4.1

    I get an PARM error when selecting an embedded image and clicking the "Edición" menu (Edit in spanish).
    After clicking the OK button I can then access all the "Edit" menu options as usual.

    Please fix this annoying behaviour.

    Thanks,
    Guille

  7. Close file when saving as a .PDF

    Close file when saving as a .PDF

    This has been a HUGE problem since you guys changed the way Illustrator handles file saves.
    When you Save As... and save as .pdf the .pdf file remains open and editable. Which if you are in a fast paced environment and forget to close that 'New' file, you are editing a PDF and when you close it out and try to reopen you are now faced with a non-editable Illustrator file (especially if you unselect illustrator compatiblity).

    I have lost DAYS of work doing that one simple task, just so I could email…

  11. FIX EXPORT FOR SCREEN ! It looses the settings.

    Export for screen looses settings every time after restarting Illustrator.

    It is unbearable!

    I have multiple documents which I want to export certain directories with certain settings.
    I'm so tired of setting directory and dimensions every time I do so small change to my design and export it as the Illustrator can't do a simple thing and remember those settings.

    Illustrator should save Export For Screen settings for each document individually, so I don't have to set them all the time.

    This can't be impossible. It was already fixed at some point.

  12. crashes opening .ai files

    AI worked fine on Saturday (25 Sep), today the same files crash the program. Update over the weekend? Can AI stop pushing updates that turn the program into a brick? In Alaska, we don't have unlimited bandwidth, we have to pay everytime I am forced to uninstall and redownload/re-install adobe programs for BAD updates. Why do we pay you to be in a constant beta?

  13. Spot Colors in Linked or Embedded Images can be Renamed in Swatches Palette, breaking functionality

    Double clicking a spot swatch in the Swatches Palette allows you to rename the swatch. In past versions, Illustrator would not allow you to rename the spot swatch if it was used in a linked or embedded image. Now the spot swatch can be renamed whether or not it is used in an image. There is no warning that the spot being renamed is in use. After renaming the spot swatch, the Swatches Palette does not show the spot actually used in the image. Changing the color values of the spot swatch before renaming changes the appearance of the image,…

  14. Art will not display, instead art flashes occasionally while alternating with an all-white & all-orange pasteboard.

    MacOS 11.3.1
    MacBook Pro 13 Inch M1 2020
    Illustrator 25.4.1

    Illustrator opens fine. however, once I open a document or create a new one, any interaction with the artboard causes the art to disappear and be replaced by flashing color blocks, sometimes white, sometimes orange, sometimes blue, and very occasionally I can see a glimpse of the art if I hold the command key.

    • Switching off GPU acceleration does not make anything better.
    • Uninstalling and reinstalling Illustrator made the problem less profound. The art looks fine until I try to click on anything, then disappears into a field…

  15. The GPU preview renderer glitches out on distortion meshes when the canvas is rotated.

    See title, really. It might just be on distortion meshes inside of clipping masks; that's where I found it and I didn't bother checking for any further details.

  16. Documents are marked as changed immediately after opening in 25.4.1.

    Since updating to 25.4.1, many documents are marked as having been edited immediately after opening them, instead of after actually changing anything.

    I have not yet tracked down if there is anything documents doing this have in common. The more effects they have in them, the more likely they are to have this happen.

    I've attached one of the simpler documents that's displaying this behavior.

  17. Poor quality images from Export for Screens

    Images from artboards containing embedded raster files output using Export for Screens are of decidedly lower quality than those output from Save for Web.

    This is being reposted as it has been closed erroneously by Adobe admins.
    Notes for Admins: This is not a resolution export setting problem. This is also not a rendering intent problem (i.e. changing the anti-aliasing setting does not fix the problem.)

    Illustrator 製品版フィードバックへのご協力ありがとうございます。

    ご報告いただきました「棒グラブの座標値の間隔が『7』の場合、座標の最大値が表示されない」問題の再現を確認いたしました。
    間隔が「7」の場合にのみ発生するようです。
    (最大値が「500000」以上で発生しやすいようです)

    今後、さらに検証を進めてまいります。
    開発に進展がありましたら、こちらでご報告させていただきます。

    今後ともよろしくお願いいたします。

  19. Scale tool shift-key constraint

    It used to be that holding the shift key while scaling would scale no matter which direction you dragged... now I've got to try to follow a smart guide.

  20. Text gets smaller if used as a clipping object

    When I set cap height of a text object to be exactly 10 mm, and then use it a clipping objects to clip an art, the height of the font gets smaller, although Ai still thinks it’s exact.

    Please see the file and GIF attached.
