  1. 細線に対する線幅プロファイルが正常に適用されない

    macOS10.15.7/ver.26.3.1

    再現手順
    1. 10mm程度の線分を描画する。
    2. 線幅を0.41mmに設定し、線幅プロファイルをアーチ状(デフォルトプリセットの6番目)のものを適用する。
    3. 歪んだ状態で適用される。パスのアウトラインを行うと歪んだ状態でアウトライン化される。

    期待する結果
    ver.25の様に適用した線幅プロファイルが正常に適用される。

    実際の結果
    細線では線幅プロファイルが正常に適用されない。
    また、過去のバージョンで作成されたデータではデータを開いただけでは正常な表示となりますが、編集作業の影響で形状が歪みます。これは付近のオブジェクト操作の影響によって生じる場合もあり危険です。線幅と長さの比率に相関関係がありそうですが現象の特定には至っておりません。

  4. Expanding stroke on small objects seem to omit points in result

    A very small ellipse, after its stroke is expanded, looses its lower inner point and the curviness changes visually. Please see the test file and the animation attached.

  5. 'Use Preview Bounds' works wrong with 'Stroke Inside' for Compound Path

    If you set set stroke's alignment to inside and check 'Use Preview Bounds' (image 1), AI will draw bounding box (and calculate dimensions) where the stroke would be visible with no alignment (image 2). This is not how it's expected to behave. The box should wrap the shape.

  6. 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…

  7. Dashed line not working

    I have the latest build of Illustrator 2021 for macOS Big Sur. When I try to apply the dashed line feature to lines or shapes, the effect does not show up. It’s as if I never clicked it. What’s going on here? I’ve never experienced this in past versions of Illustrator. I even tried deleting my preferences. Still nothing. This is so frustrating!

  9. Blending paths with Width profiles works wrong

    Create two lines.
    Apply width profiles to both of them.
    Blend them.
    Ai will generate steps that have uniform profiles instead of intermediate.

  10. Inside / outside strokes get silently expanded when you create a pattern with them

    Try these steps:
    1. Create a shape (like ellipse or rectangle)
    2. Make sure you have Inside or Outside option chosen for Align Stroke in the Stroke panel
    3. Object > Pattern > Make (or drag the ellipse to the Swatches panel)
    4. Check the contents of the pattern.
    The stroke gets expanded!

    However, if you copy an object with an Inside / Outside stroke and paste it into the pattern — it doesn’t get expanded and stays live... until you commit editing — only then Ai warns you non-cnetered strokes will get expanded.

    Perhaps Ai should drop a message…

  11. Width tool messes up the width points when a path is extended / shortened / cut

    Maybe this feature exists already but I haven't been able to find it.

    When using the width tool, it would be nice if you could "freeze" the width nodes in their position, so you could extend or shorten the path. Today the nodes adjust to the new length of the path, messing up all your previous work.

  12. bug: [PARM] error after changing stroke alignment

    I clicked the 'align outside' button in the stroke panel and got this error.
    I would keep popping op so I had to close AI.

  13. Expanding an Inside / Outside stroke creates barely open paths

    1. Create a rectangle
    2. Apply a thick stroke to it and change its alignment to Inside or Outside
    3. Expand Appearance for the shape
    4. Deselect the shape
    5. Grab Direct selection and carefully move the corner points at the top right, for both paths

    It turns out Illustrator doesn’t keep these tidy! One is cut open, another has a doubled point! It leads to a problems later, when we try, e.g. to make corners rounded, or apply effects.

    A current workaround is to apply Add (as Pathfinder operation or an effect) to the stroke, separately form the fill... and it’s taxing for memory,…

  14. Stroke Inside is unchangeable on a compound shape

    If you make a compound shape from two paths with strokes set to Inside, then this is retained for the compound shape and shown in the Appearance panel, but it's not reflected in the Stroke panel and it can't be changed there.

  15. Scrolling Stroke Arrow Styles Crashes Illustrator

    When editing a stroke arrowhead, Illustrator freezes and crashes when I try to scroll down the list of available arrowhead options. It will happen in the properties panel and the other stroke panels. It is 100% repeatable. I can select the arrowhead styles that are at the top of the list no problem, but if I scroll it crashes.

  16. Fill/Stroke automatically snaps back to previous setting

    Whenever I make a change to fill or stroke (color or on/off) it automatically reverts to the previous setting as soon as you click back to the artboard. (ie: select shape, turn stroke off, stroke turns back on, hit cmd+z to undo the stroke turning back on. This has been happening over multiple versions.

  17. Dash offset defined by a negative strokeDashOffset value is not respected when a stroke is outlined

    Illustrator has a strokeDashOffset property that sets the indentation of the first stroke in the dashed line.

    It works when specified through the script, but there is no similar field in the interface of dashed line settings, i.e. it looks like a hidden functionality. It’s still legal and it works, but at the same time, a dashed line created with this parameter cannot be outlined correctly using standard Illustrator tools when the value is negative.

    It's a cursed property: it's a pity to ignore it, and it's a shame to use it because of its unreliability.

    Please fix the bug…

  18. Dashed lines changing style when exporting to SVG

    The latest update to AI has caused this issue. When exporting an svg with dashed lines, the svg's dashed lines either disappear or become dotted lines.

    Operating System: Windows 10 Enterprise
    Adobe Illustrator version: 27.0
    Steps:
    1) Open Adobe Illustrator
    2) Create a new file
    3) Draw a line
    4) Open the properties window by going to Window > Properties
    5) Click on the Stroke option
    6) Check "Dashed Line" on
    7) Set the first "dash" to 10
    8) Make sure the rest of the "gap" and "dash" options are blank
    9) Go to File > Export > Export As…

  19. "Align dash to corners and path ends" is broken in 2022.

    See title.

    Here's two screengrabs of 2021 and 2022 with the following done in them:

    1. Draw an 800x800 pt circle in the middle of the canvas.
    2. Set the stroke to 800px wide, black, dashed line on, 12pt in the first dash box, no other gaps/dashes, turn on "align dash to corners and path ends".

    2021 renders evenly, as expected, 2022 has the dashes at weird off-kilter angles.

    2022 will render evenly if I switch to "preserve exact dash and gap lengths".

    Observed on 26.0.2, both with my usual plugins and with them removed, maybe i'll try updating later today to…

  20. Line width tool issues

    When changing the line width with the "Width Tool", it creates little triangles in the line and distorts all the corners.
