  1. Align to Artboard

    All version of Illustrator before CC 2018 the Align to.. command would stick to Align to Artboard unless you clicked on another object to define a Key Object.

    This upgrade keeps jumping back to align selections.

  2. Switching between files doesn't work properly - or at all

    See the attached video. I have two files open. The second file I opened does not display. When I click on the file tab I still have the previous file displayed. Regardless of which file is active, I can only edit one. I can't even see the other. They are two completely different projects - they do not look the same. You are only seeing one file in this video, despite which one I select. I have to quite and restart, losing any changes I may have in the one file I cannot see.

  4. Unable to retain the last active artboard on switching from another file

    This is related to this issue here, though I'm unable to vote or comment on it. So I'm reposting this issue, because it's still annoying.

    https://illustrator.uservoice.com/forums/601447-illustrator-bugs/suggestions/32101687-zoom-to-arbitrary-artboard-when-switching-between

    When I https://illustrator.uservoice.com/forums/601447-illustrator-bugs/suggestions/32101687-zoom-to-arbitrary-artboard-when-switching-between

    When I ⌘+Tilde (~), on certain documents (the setting seems to be saved to a document), it automatically Fits Artboard to Screen on the last artboard of the document. It is confusing, and annoying, and interrupts workflows where I need to move quickly between artboards. Please fix this.

  5. Artboard selection bugs in Illustrator CC 2018

    There are a number of bugs related to Illustrator CC 2018 losing artboard selection (no highlight in the artboard list in the artboard panel), and losing sync between actual artboard selection and displayed (highlighted) selection. These include:

    When copying an artboard by dragging and dropping it onto the New Artboard icon in the Artboard panel, and then dragging that new artboard to a new position in the artboard list, the selection is displayed on the new artboard in its new location, but in fact, the original artboard is still selected. Double-clicking on the new artboard does NOT move selection to…

  7. Update 25.2.2 closes all the tabs instead of one tab at a time

    Just after downloading the latest update, instead of closing one tab/page at a time, Illustrator started to automatically close every single opened page. It's happening with both Command + W and via the close button at the top of the page.

    Please advise.

  8. Select artboard behind

    With the latest update if I draw an artboard over an existing one I can only select the larger board. It didn't use to be like this. We used to be able to click each artboard name to select it.

  9. Off-center FIT TO SCREEN when copy/pasting object

    Hello - I'm about as expert an illustrator user can get - for years I've used FIT ARTBOARD (option-0) as a way to cut/paste pixel perfectly centered artwork. The latest AI version 2017 is off - I realize align to artboard is the intended feature to attain this effect, however that way somewhat stinks because you can't make into a shortkey. Why doesn't (command-0) no longer perfectly center my artboard? (NOTE: the off-centered-ness varies from .1 to .01 inches - so very small -- but significant if you're doing engineering grade designs) -- thank you.

  13. Artboard units do not update when I change ruler units

    Hi all,

    Video of the bug: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q5yhDUw2YTY

    Also posted this to the Community Forums.
    The units of the artboard do not update in the properties panel when I change the Rulers Units.

    I have to de-select, and re-select the artboard to make this happen.

  14. Artboard size not working

    Hi,
    Having issues with artboards, including some listed earlier. Today's new issue:

    Created an artboard 490px x 490px. Instead the artboard size is 490px x 489.6px.

    Try to resize artboard, but the action doesn't take. See video.

    Illustrator CC 2018 20.0.1

    Thanks,
    Carla

  15. Can't Delete Empty Artboards

    I can no longer "delete empty artboards." The feature is there and not grayed out, but when I try to use it, it simply does nothing. My empty artboards remain. This is very inconvenient as I sometimes need to alter documents with several artboards and I have found it to be extremely helpful in the past.

  16. Deleting Successive Artboards

    If you have a list of artboards and try and delete several of them in a row, deleting one will deselect the list. This is not a major issue in most cases, but it is a nuisance when having to quickly delete 40 or more artboards; it doubles the number of commands that need to be inputted before reaching the same result.

  17. Empty artboard name which changes itself when artboard is resized

    I have a simple template for business card, made long ago, with a single artboard inside.
    Today I created new document based on this template and AI22 has shown this single artboard with no name (which was never touched in template and always was default 'Artboard 1'). It displays as 'Artboard 1' in Artboards paleette, but tag is missing.
    Next, when I add height to this artboard in Control panel, it got renamed to 'Artboard 2', both in tag and palette.
    If I undo this and make change again, it got 'Artboard 3' and so on.
    I expect this artboard…

  19. Artboard list drops off when saving

    With multiple artboards setup. "Save a copy" to EPS and select "Use Artboards" Select "all".

    EPS's export fine, artboards still in there, but artboard listing drops all but top artboard. If you click around a bit, they re-appear.
