  1. pathfinder, file sizes, interface changes

    case # 018 9255 921
    Pathfinder does not function properly in Illustrator CC 2017 on my 4 ghz i7 (late 2015) imac. OSX 10.11.16; AMD Radeon R9 M395 2048 MB, forcing me to fall back and work in old Illustrator CS6.

    When I divide two shapes or paths (particularly curves, ellipes etc), the anchor points sometimes move, and paths (curves, angles etc) change. Very sloppy, "kind-of, sort-of" results, with an absolute lack or precision.

    CS6 and earlier versions did not have this problem. It is intermittent and unpredictable, but troublesome enough as to render CC 2017 unusable and made me…

  3. exporting svg

    Hi,
    I use Illustrator CC 2017 21.1.0.
    When exporting an illustrator document to svg 1.2 tiny and open in Dreamweaver CC2017 or another editor I receive an error on the Illustrator metadata / namespaces like:

  4. Expanded Objects have missing Corner Widgets

    1. Problem occurs in all versions of Illustrator 21.x.x and 22.x.x

    2. When an Object with a non-simple Appearance is Expanded the resulting shapes have Corner Widgets created for some of the corners but not for others.

    3. All corners should have Corner Widgets.

    4. When an Object with a non-simple Appearance is Expanded the resulting shapes have Corner Widgets created for some of the corners but not for others. I don't understand why when I expand a rectangle I get a new rectangle with 3 corners that have Corner Widgets but the 4th corner doesn't have a Corner Widget - how can it…

  5. Move pattern (swatch pattern) within shape with direct selection tool

    Some colleagues of mine are able to move a pattern filling within a shape by holding down < and the direct selection tool (white arrow). Some others - including me - are not. It's quiet annoying to move a pattern numerically within the shape (transform --> move).

    Adobe Support was not able to solve the problem.

  7. GPU Performance stops working when enabled

    Illustrator 21.1.0 (64-bit)

    GPU Performance shuts off whenever I open a file. I have to close the file, turn off GPU Performance (yes, turn it OFF in preferences), then turn it ON again, then reopen my file to get it working again. I've been complaining about this for months, and Adobe has ignored my complaints. All updates including drivers have been installed and I've completely removed and reinstalled Illustrator.

  8. User Guide Correction - Broken Links

    The section of the user guide called Painting > Gradients is full of nothing but broken links. https://helpx.adobe.com/illustrator/using/gradients.html
    Your links all just forward to http://create.adobe.com/ and http://tv.adobe.com/vi+f1586v1019
    which isn't helpful at all if you're trying to read the user guide in any meaningful way. Of course I can google ways to use the gradient tools but I came to you for the definitive "adobe prescribed" version of information as a way to prepare for your ACE exams. I know I'm not the only one who does this to bone up so if someone could help fix broken links it would…

    Document recovery is now built inside Illustrator to recover incomplete/corrupt documents. Illustrator first tries to fix and open the native Illustrator document, if that fails then the PDF part of the document is recovered if it is available. Illustrator shows message to the user if any of the above attempts fails to recover the document.

  11. 「移動」の不具合

    1.Illustrator CC 2017(〜2014)
    2. 「移動」で垂直方向(上)にオブジェクトを移動した後、マイナス方向(下)に移動させようとすると、マイナスが効かずそのまま上方へ移動してしまう。
    3.4 .2を解除するには一旦別の数値を入力した後、再度マイナス方向の数値を入力すればリセットされて正常に動きますが、その入力がいちいち面倒臭い。

  13. Blob Brush changes size after undo operation

    1. Illustrator CC 2017.1.0

    2. -I Select blob brush on 2pt.
      -draw a bit with it
      -Hit undo and the blob brush suddenly changes to a much larger size even though it says 2pt in the menu
      -The only way to get it back is to go to Blob brush menu, select 1pt hit ok, then go back to blob brush menu and select 2pt again.

    3. I expect that when I hit undo the blob brush will stay the correct size

    4. It changes size every time I hit undo

    I am happy to share that we have fixed this bug in our latest release – 23.0.6 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!

  14. Selection Stuck

    Often when I select multiple object one will remain selected no matter where I click and what else I select. I have to "select all" then clink in blank space to get everything un selected. It's wasting a lot of time.

  16. Concentric Text

    Your recent Free template "Old Jazz and Blues" obviously is a poor design because the text on line pieces are not concentric, which presumably is what the artist intended. This free template is consequently quite useless for a professional designer.

  19. AI CC2017 has flatten my work file into an image automatically

    1. Illustrator 21.1.0

    2. I use a lot of paths and layers to create effects in AI, once done I saved it. When i reopen it to edit some features, I was shocked that it flatten all my paths into an image! Nothing I can do but re-do it, painful experience!!

    I re-do (painfully), saved, reopen.....it works fine. I used that AI file to do adaptation, by copy the whole layers (file A) and paste to other AI file art board (file B).

    But when I reopen file B to further edit, file B has turn into a flatten image....again. Luckily file…

  20. User guide correction

    Customer support asked that I make this post via their twitter account. I found that the content in the user guide identifying the various symbols and marks of the swatch panel is not accurately labeled. E and F are wrong. They should say LAB and RGB but they instead are calling the icons CMYK AND RGB. Could be highly confusing those just learning the software. Thanks!!
