  2. 와콤타블렛 PTH 660 연결시 일러스트레이터 다운 후 복구창으로

    와콤타블렛 PTH-660을 연결(블루투스나 USB연결 모두)하여 일러스트레이터를 사용시 어느정도 시간이 지나면 자동으로 일러스트레이터가 종료되고 다시 일러스트레이터를 실행시키면 복구할 파일을 복구하라는 팝업창이 뜬채로 실행됨. 한두번이 아니고 계속적으로 발생하기에 타블렛을 사용할 수가 없을 정도임. 충돌 문제 검토 부탁드립니다.
    일러스트레이터 최신업데이트 버전이며, 폰트관련 부분도 체크가 완료되었고, 아울러 초기화도 여러번 해봤으나 해당 증상은 계속되고 있습니다.

  3. Grey rendering/latency issues MAC Ventura

    since updating my MAC to Ventura I have been experiencing what seems to be graphics issues on Illustrator.

    I am able to move the cursor over these grey areas which begins to erase them, however the next time I move positions more grey areas appear.

  4. SVG Export missing data-attributes in 27.1

    macOS Ventura 13.1
    Illustrator 27.1

    Export for Screens
    Choose SVG format
    Edit Format Settings for SVG (by clicking on gear icon)
    Select SVG and set to the following:
    Styling: Inline Style
    Font: SVG
    Images: Preserve
    Object IDs: Unique
    Decimal: 2
    check both Minify and Responsive

    The exported SVG should have the attribute data-name with the object's layer name. For example, a rectangle object filled with the color #f6b780 with the layer named 0006A should look like this in the SVG file.

    <rect id="bddec359-1a3b-4c18-8500-9c0518f1a41d" data-name="0006A" x="1374.25" y="603.67" width="232.52" height="83.75" style="fill:#f6b780"/>

    Instead the code is rendering like this when exported from Illustrator…

  5. Keyboard shortcut for "Navigate to Next Document" stopped working on MacOS

    With the latest update to Illustrator 27.2, I've found the "Navigate to Next Document" keyboard shortcut to have stopped working. I have checked the Keyboard Shortcuts tool and verified that it remains as "Illustrator Defaults" and it is set to ⌘`. In fact none of the related shortcuts work.

    To be sure, I've tried a different keyboard with the same result and the shortcut does continue to work in other applications (as it is the default shortcut on macOS to cycle around documents.)

  6. Stroke width is scaled along with the element it is applied to

    The stroke width is scaled along with the element it is applied to (transform="scale(sx sy)") if the scale values (sx, sy) are different. Stroke width is not scaled if the scale values are the same. Ideally stroke should not be scaled.
    Workaround for the browser is to use vector-effect='non-scaling-stroke' attr, but it is still not being supported by AI.

    This need some clarification.

    I don’t think I can understand the problem.

    Illustrator is capable of scaling strokes with object, it the corresponding option is checked. When it’s enabled, it does not differ between uniform and non-uniform transformations. So, is it a feature request and not a bug report, or am I missing the point of it?

  7. Wacom is crashing Illustrator 2023

    It crashes within in minutes. It will crash while selecting a tool, moving the screen, or trying to use a tool--any function using a Wacom. There is rarely a crash report and often it's not even open long enough for the 2 minute autosave to kick in. I'm on a pc with Windows 10 and 27.2 cc.

  10. Opening Harmony Rules in the Color Guide crashes AI 27.2

    Lately when opening the color guide and clicking on any of the non default harmony rules instantly crashes Illustrator with a segfault. This is happening on several AI files. I am on macOS 13.1 and AI 27.2 on an intel mac. I have attached the crash report from macOS.

  11. Illustrator 2023 often force close when drawing with the pencil tool

    Illustrator 2023 version 27.2 freezes when I try to draw using the pencil tool for about 5-10 minutes with a pen tablet, and then immediately force close itself. and this keeps repeating several times and I even tried restarting my PC, changing the graphics performance for the Illustrator app to "High Performance", updating the latest drivers and software. but the problem is still not resolved.

    I really need your help for this issue so that it can be resolved quickly. very annoying when I'm working and suddenly force close by itself.

  12. When I import a Color Library it changes to a swatch spot color and is a magenta spot color while folder is empty

    When I add a color library, downloaded from Adobe to my library and I tried to import into swatches it changes to a magenta color. The folder also comes up, but has no colors added to it. It's been doing this for multiple versions for a while now.

  14. Rendering complicated files on MAC requires CPU rather than GPU

    Something is wrong with GPU rendering.

    My old iMac (27" 2016) used to have rendering issues with larger/complicated files. For example, using the HAND tool and moving around, sections would not render/refresh.
    I thought, well it's an old machine the GPU must be dying.

    Then i got a new MacBook M1 MAX with 64GB Memory.

    And I still often see rendering issues and need to switch to CPU.

  15. Eyedropper random wrong results

    OSX 13.0.1
    Illustrator 27.1.1

    Attempting to pick up paragraph and character values of text with eyedropper. Test is built in a new document from a blank template, components pasted from a working file.
    Expected result: that selected text will end up with same values (font, color, size, lead, letterspacing) as sample
    Actual result: as far as I can see, completely random results. Sometimes the letterspacing is changed to a value neither the source nor the destination is set to. Sometimes nothing happens. In this video, the font color changes to a color that is not used in the document.

  16. Persistent Save to cloud dialogue

    I don't want to save to Cloud, but with the 27.2 update I get this dialogue every time I create a new file and then hit 'save' or 'save as'. I clicked 'don't show again' but this option appears in the second dialogue box, not the first, so now I get the 'save to creative cloud' dialogue every time and have to click on 'on your computer' and then wait a few seconds for the 'save as' dialogue.

  17. Stroke weight defaults to 1pt when a new type of brush is applied.

    MacOS 12.6.2
    Illustrator 27.1.1

    To replicate the issue:
    Assign a 2pt stroke to an object, then apply any brush to it — the stroke weight becomes 1pt.
    Switching between brushes of the same type (Calligraphic, Scatter, Art…) seems to keep the weight intact, but switching the type of brush triggers the stroke weight to default back to 1pt.
    Expected result: the assigned weight stays the same regardless of the brushes applied.

  20. Bug: dragging global swatch to the “plus” button doesn’t work as expected

    MacOS 12.6.2
    Illustrator 27.1.1

    To replicate the issue:
    Create a group of swatches and put a global swatch inside the group.
    Drag this swatch to the [+] button to create a duplicate.
    The actual result: A new global swatch is created outside the group with “Original Name copy” name while the original swatch is also renamed to the same name. Changing one of those swatches also changes the other, they act as one swatch.
    Expected result: the same as when you alt-click the [+] button to duplicate a swatch. A new global swatch is created in the same group, it’s…
