  1. Possible bug: Crash after script runs... runs OK in ESTK.

    I believe this might be a bug since it crashed Illustrator rather than the script crashing gracefuly.

    I have a script which, when completed, crashes Illustrator. The script runs fine when ran from within the ESTK but crashes when ran from the AI File->Scripts menu. Attached is the crash log. I cannot post the script itself here but am willing to send it to an Adobe employee privately if needed.

  2. Editing a small CC Library object breaks the thumbnail

    Editing small CC Library items leads to imminent damage to it's thumbnail.

    1 Create an object in Illustrator (for testing purpose make it 4pt x 4pt)
    2 Add it to cc library (noth that thumbnail is generated properly)
    3 Edit the cc lib. object in illustrator (anything will do just add a rectangle anywhere on the canvas)
    4 Save/close the CC lib object

    Expected: the thumbnail is updated and represents the content of the CC item
    Observed: the thumbnail is ridiculously small/not readable

    Check the screenshots and video attached.

  3. Can't move paragraph indent markers back to 0 in tab panel

    Illustrator CC 2018
    Windows 10

    When I try to move the top or bottom indent markers back to zero, it snaps back to its original place.
    If I type 0 in the X: box, it doesn't work.
    If I set it to 1, cliclk in the X: box and press the down arrow on my keyboard, it doens't work.

    The only way to set it back is via the Paragraph panel.

  4. Smart guides don't work properly

    It has been too long for this not to be working right yet. Smart guides aren't smart enough. When smart guides snap to something it has to be exact, not .05 pixels off. Close enough is not good enough. Also, when I drag over an object it needs to snap to that object, not some random shape clear across the pasteboard. If I have to zoom in 2600% to manually align something (which I often do) smart guides and snapping have failed. Is there some ridiculous setting I have to change to get this to work the way it's supposed…

    It’s dangerous to call things Smart... When they behave dumb, the name sound like an insult. Sadly, this is the case.

    Please provide more specific cases, with video proofs, ask you colleagues to share and vote, to move this further. This is the way to force changes to things that are broken — be vocal and persistent. Thank you all and let’s hope we get heard.

  5. Smart guides not working on Text Area boxes

    Mac OS 10.11.6 El Capitan (and also Windows 10)
    Illustrator CC 2018

    Hi!
    I have a problem with the latest version of Illustrator (I just upgraded from CS6):
    Smart Guides do not appear on Text Area boxes (corners or sides), for example when I want to draw a line with the pen from one corner of a box to a corner of another box).
    They do appear normally on other objects.

    Snap to Grid and Snap to Pixel are off. Snap to Point is on, but the problem is the same when off.

    Is anyone experiencing the same? Is there…

  7. SVG Export Missing XML Encoding Tag

    The latest updates to Illustrator (21.0.1) seems to have removed the all-important encoding tag required by browsers to render SVG appropriately when embedding etc. in an html page.

    It exports the svg without this tag at the beginning of the file.
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>

  8. Menu Issues

    MacOS High Sierra 10.13.1
    Illustrator 22.0.1

    When the Application Frame is disabled, the menu items are displayed incorrectly. The "View" menu is attached.

    I have reset the preferences and the menus seemed to work fine, but when I disabled the application frame, they went crazy again.

    Also discussed on Twitter with Customer Care. https://twitter.com/scottzirkel/status/928392054660530176

  10. Illustrator CC 2018 crash on swatch library import

    Hello,

    Every now and again when I import a swatch library from the presets folder via the Swatches import menu from "Other Library"; Ai would crash the first round. When I open the file again and repeat the import process, no crashes occur.

    This happened with previous versions as well.

    Thanks and cheers.

  11. Auto-sized Area text not resizing correctly

    Looks like someone didn't understand (or maybe I didn't explain well enough) what the issue was with this bug that was declined. So I have recorded a video to demonstrate the issue.

    Previous entry here:
    https://illustrator.uservoice.com/forums/601447-illustrator-bugs/suggestions/32016784--bug-area-text-with-auto-size-and-stroke-applied

    As before - Windows 7, Illustrator cc18

    Please follow steps in the video to recreate the bug which is causing area text boxes to extend beyond the artboard.

  12. Bug in entering number values in transform panel

    Version: CC 22 (and has happened in previous versions)
    OS: Windows 10

    There is a small bug that happens often when using the transform panel. I use it a lot to move and size objects with precision. Many times, I will want to move an object with the X and Y values. I will type a number, press enter and a completely different number value will automatically appear in the box and move it to that value. For example, I want to move an object to 4.25" in the Y axis and after I press enter, a value of 36.0833"…

    It is now obvious the issue was not fixed fully. The developers are aware of it now. Let’s hope it will be fixed soon enough.

    If you have a solid order of steps which reproduce this behavior, share them in comments, because only some machines are affected. Please help the team to isolate it.

  13. Zoom options in View menu items have completely wrong labels

    There's an absolutely bizarre off-by-two error in the View menu in Illustrator CC 22.0 that I just noticed while working on something today.

    When initially starting Illustrator CC 22.0, the "Fit All in Window" and "Actual Size" items in the View menu have the correct labels (see attachment zoomoptscorrect.png). However, once a file has been opened, these menu items are assigned completely wrong labels, which should belong to the items two spaces lower in the menu — "Hide Edges" and "Hide Artboards", respectively (see zoomoptswrong.png).

  14. Bug when Setting Artboard Ruler Origins

    Ai v 22.0.0
    macOS 10.12.6

    After updating from CC 2017 to CC 2018, I can now no longer assign individual Artboard Ruler Origins to each Artboard in a document

    I use several nested Artboards to control different areas of the same artwork and assign the Ruler Origin of each to the same object. After the update, I can now only assign the ruler origin of one of the nested Artboards to the selected object; the Origin does not change on the others.

    I have tried deleting all existing Artboards and then creating them and setting the Ruler Origin one at…

  16. Hide text highlighting on "Hide Edges" (CMD+H)

    This was never fixed in CC 2015 - 2017 and the same **** bug is in CC2018.

    In ALL previous versions of AI prior to CC2015 (or at least as far back as CS5 when I got Illy), if you selected text with the Text Tool which made the text highlighted, if you then performed the Hide Edges command, the highlight would NOT show... that way you could change the color, Tracking, font size etc of ONLY the SELECTED characters without affecting the others.

    The "big deal" here is when you are trying to see the color change take effect…

    Touch bar controls do not change the color of objects when using sliders, and swatches save to touch bar but not to actual swatches panel. Cannot delete swatches from Touch Bar.
