  3. Can't save color themes even when signed in

    I'm trying to save a color theme but when I mouse over "Save" it says "You must sign to save color themes" even though I am already signed in according to the Help drop down menu. As a result I can't save any color themes. I'm using the 1 week trial version of Adobe Illustrator called Adobe Illustrator CC Tryout 2017.1.0 Release.

  4. Zoom artefact

    Illustrator 21.1.0

    When I use a very high zoom (25 500 %), paths appear distorded or even disappear.

    It happens when GPU rendering is off as well as when it's on.

  5. High Sierra (macOS 10.13) GPU rendering issues with RGB document - Intel Graphics

    Illustrator 21.1.0 has issues with GPU rendering in the latest High Sierra public betas:

    Paths will appear jagged and generally do not display correctly.

    Altering the zoom level affects these artefacts.

    Switching off GPU rendering altogether fixes the issue but this way, performance is obviously affected.

    Additional Note: Works correctly in CMYK document.

  6. Bounding Box Persistence while traversing history: failure mode

    Hello, this is a very light bug that has been pestering me.
    I'm running Ai CC 21.1.0

    Bug Summary:
    While traversing the Ai history using (Cmd+z and Shift+Cmd+z) the bounding box loses track of which elements are being manipulated between the different states. This may depend on number of elements, which will then point to performance limitations but I am running on a 2016 MacBook Pro, 16 GB Memory, 2.7 GHz i7 processor, Radeon Pro 455 and Intel HD Graphics 530 1536 MB for graphics.

    Steps to Reproduce:
    1. Take a mixed sample of marks, shapes, type.
    2. Make unique…

  8. "Place copy" of RGB CC library item in CMYK doc changes document color setting to RGB

    Illustrator 21.1.0
    1. Created text or other items in an RGB AI doc.
    2. Add to CC library via drag and drop.

    3. Open CMYK AI doc
    4. Right click the RGB item and select "Place Copy" (looks like that's cut off on the GIF — probably recorded with too few frames).

    Expected result: RGB items converted to CMYK

    Actual result: CMYK doc converted to RGB

  10. Large Amounts of Text overrun text area, disregard justification

    I'm using Illustrator CC (2017).
    I am creating a 6'x4' poster, where a single text box holds the entire text of the Bible (~730,000 words) as a single string of text (regular spaces between words, but no paragraph returns) in Helvetica Neue Lt Std, 107 Extra Bold Condensed, 3 pt size with 2.7 pt leading, all caps, full justification, default hyphenation. I am using a text wrap around a compound object with a transparent fill to create a negative space in the midst of this text block (in my case, that compound object is text converted to a shape, so…

    Thanks for reporting this bug Illustrator Team really appreciate this.
    We are able to reproduce this issue in house and we are investigating it .

  11. Right Click does not work

    This is not an idea, it is a bug complaint! My right click does not work on Illustrator on anything. I just downloaded the latest version of Adobe Illustrator Version 2017 21.1.0 in hopes to correct the "right clicking" issue that was in my older version (version prior to 21.1.0). I've uninstalled and reinstalled the program and the same problem still persist. My right click does not work! This is slowing down my work and it's definitely not time efficient. Help me fix this now!

  12. Selection tolerance does not apply for selecting handles and is broken for points

    Selection tolerance does not work for handles selection. You need to be very precise to select them. When smart guides are on, it works, but not when they are off.. For my type of work it's better to work without smart guides.

  13. Illustrator stops working and closes

    This is simple enough, and I'm sure I'm not the only one this happens to, but this has been happening for years, every time I get started I do about an hour of work then its complains it has stopped working and closes! No save option, no autosave, no back up, nothing!

    A very simple way to fix this, have an autosave!

  18. Layer panel not working with document multiple windows

    Hi, I have the AI latest release (21.1.0) and I'm facing an issue with multiple windows on two different screens of the same project.
    The layers panel is not responding when I want to open a layer tree, block and hide/show.

    I read there are some problems with the GPU preview so I tried to disabled it but the problem is still there.

    I try to explain what I'm doing:
    1. Open an empty New Document
    2. Add two new layers
    3. Draw something on every layer
    4. Duplicate the window going to Window > New Window (I want to…

  19. Drop down menus stop working

    Drop down menus will stop working at random. For example, the weight menu under the character panel will not drop down. However, if for example I have my font set to "Black", although I cannot use the drop down menu, I can select the word "Black" and type "Bold" and it will switch the font to bold.

    This happens with various menus throughout the software. I have not been able to fix it. Even after quitting the program and restarting my computer the issues persists.

  20. Crash when vectorising any image

    Hello, I have an Adobe Cloud account and am using the latest version of illustrator CC. I cannot vectorize images any more. It crashes whatever setting I use.

    I tried to desactivate the GNU processor but to no avail. I tried on several images kind and format, but Illustrator won't accept any. They do open and the vectorization begins but it crashes before finishing. and no explanation is given just that a problem occured and that the application will close.

    This is very problematic as I need to vectorize images. Please help me, Adobe-Kenobi, you are my only hope !
