  1. Image Trace has a problem keeping the artwork in the same location from the original.

    Illustrator version 22.0.1

    Image trace seems to have a problem keeping artwork in the same location from the original. Screen Shot 1 shows some text that I have rasterized to be image traced. I work at a die making facility so rasterized images need to be made into vectors for our CNC machines to "read them."

    As it stands, if I image trace this text it is going to be transposed to the right and below the original. The image traced result in Screen Shot 2 is the magenta color. My original rasterized image is in black. When this specific…

  2. 和文組版の横組み文字列中の文字回転

    Illustratorの日本語組版で、横組み文字列中の1文字を回転すると、文字が上下・左右に暴れて表示されてしまいます。
    ※縦組み中ではそういった不具合は観察されません。
    添付ファイルのように検証してみましたが、その回転の際の原点あるいは挙動原理などがよくわかりません。
    例えば、添付ファイル右下のように補正してみても、同じファミリー内でウエイトを変更しただけでもその補正値は変わるようです(平均字面が関係している?)。
    和文書体は、(欧文ベールライン位置や平均字面は様々でも)基本的には正方形の仮想ボディに納められていますので、仮想ボディの中心を回転の原点としていただければ、このような補正の手間がなくなるのではないだろうか? と考えられます。
    挙動を変更していただければ、作業者の負担も軽減されるでしょう。

    なお、このような「横組み文字列中のひと文字を回転する」という処理は、あまり日常的にすることではありませんので、既存ファイルへの影響も軽微なものであろうと考えていますが、変更していただくならば、【その変更を周知】していただくことは大切なことだと申し添えておきます。

    よろしくお願いします。

  3. Line tool is immune to the Constrain Angle

    When you set up Constraint Angle to 30 or whatever is different form 0 or 90, pick up Line tool and hold Shift, it still snaps to 0, 45, 90, 135... instead of 30, 75, 120, 165...

  4. Clipping mask from a live text is misaligned / resized / distorted

    When using a solid swatch filled variable font as a clipping mask (Hepta Slab in the attached example) the clipped paths are misaligned with the font (in display and in selection hovering).

  5. Cambria text & large text cursor

    Looks like this was happening in 2017 as well... when using Cambria font, the cursor is 2 or 3 times as large as it should be when editing text. Makes highlighting & editing multiple rows almost impossible. I'd attach a file but others have shown the same thing already and it's simply a text box with Cambria text and a huge cursor. Text size is 11, height set at 13. In the same document but a text box using BonvenoCF, the cursor is the right height.

  6. Gradient tool issues

    1. Handles on on object's Gradient Annotator are difficult to adjust once a gradient has been dropped. Usually, handles simply don't respond. User needs to start from scratch and create a brand new gradient rather than make small adjustments to existing ones.

    2. Repeated but not consistent bug: adjusting one gradient causes changes to unrelated gradients on same document.

    3. Live preview of gradient tool is prohibitively slow, esp when gradient is anywhere near an existing Effect.

    FIX: Allow us to toggle the preview effect.

    1. Dropping a color onto the gradient slider, color creates a new color-point onto slider, immediately next to existing…

  8. Preferences reset to default... EVERY time I open Illustrator

    Every time I open Illustrator, all preferences are reset to the defaults. EVERY preference, EVERY time. I've saved custom workspaces, keyboard shortcuts, etc. and those are available to be activated, every time I open the application.
    Using AI CC 2018 (22.0.1) on Windows 7, with Cloud disabled.
    I do NOT have the option to install the latest patch; I don't even have access to menu item "Check for Updates."
    Would be EXTREMELY helpful if Adobe would make the list of fixes for each patch available. I have no way of knowing when there's been an update, or what was patched…

  9. ファイル→書き出しにてJPEGを書き出す際、圧縮方式が選択したものと異なる場合がある

    Windows10/21H1 Adobe IllustratorCC 26.0.3

    問題が発生したときに実行していた手順
    1.アートワークをアートボード上に作成する。
    2.ファイル→書き出し→書き出し形式を選択しJPGを選択する。
    3.ダイアログ上で圧縮方式を「ベースライン(最適化)」を指定しJPEGファイルを書き出す。
    4.書き出されたJPEGファイルは圧縮方式がプログレッシブになっている。

    想定していた結果
    指定したベースライン(最適化)でJPEGファイルが作成される。

    実際の結果
    圧縮方式がプログレッシブにて書き出される。

    この症状はWindows版のみで起こるようです。また、書き出し状態が異なるケースも見られるようなので他のパラメータによる影響を受けている可能性も残ります。
    わたしが検証したファイル3種類を添付します。それぞれがファイル名に付けた圧縮形式で書き出しを行っていますが、バイナリデータを見てもベースライン最適化とプログレッシブのマーカーが入れ替わっている状態です。
    この問題については以下のスレッドをご参照下さい。

    https://community.adobe.com/t5/illustratorフォーラム-discussions/illustratorでjpeg書き出しするとプログレッシブになる/m-p/12795818#M27679

  10. 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" ?>

  11. Adobe Illustrator 27.8.1 creates a pdf where the colour space of the custom profile is incorrect

    Hello,
    I came back from holiday today and a colleague at work told me that she can't create PDF files from Adobe Illustrator with the output intent that it saves but reports a colour space error when opened in Adobe Acrobat. First I deleted all the presets but the error remained. I also tried creating a PDF file with other profiles (created by us) and the error was there for all of them. But if I used the default profiles from Adobe (e.g. Iso Coated v2), the PDF file can be opened correctly. Finally I downgraded Illustrator to version 27.7…

    ご報告いただいた「合成フォントが使用されているパス上文字をアウトライン化した際に、一部の文字が正しくアウトライン化されない現象」の再現を確認いたしました。

    こちらの問題は曲線パス上の文字の角度によって、再現の有無があるようです。

    また、ノーマルフォントの場合は再現しませんが、単一フォントのみで作成された合成フォントでは再現することが確認できました。

  13. Copying tables from InDesign and only the text pastes in Illustrator

    Hello, I used to be able to copy a table I created in InDesign and copy and paste it into Illustrator with all of the formatting being the same. Now when I go to paste a table, all of the table formatting is missing and it's just a big block of text. Please fix this soon as my company does this on a day-to-day basis for our images. I attached an image of what it looks like when I paste the table in Illustrator.

    Illustrator team is working on a fix for this issue. Meanwhile you can use the below workaround to paste the table as it was before.


    Before you copy the table in InDesign, create a path object along with table and then copy from InDesign and Paste in Illustrator. This forces the PDF route for copy/paste between ID and AI

  14. Illustrator 25.4.1 Generating constant 105MB log files into com.adobe.dunamis folder and filling up hard drive

    When I am working in Illustrator, my fan starts to run and Illustrator generates multiple log files per minute in the com.adobe.dunamis folder. Each log file is roughly 105MB and before I was able to pinpoint what was going on, it filled my hard drive with 750GB of log files. If I close Illustrator and reopen it, it stops for awhile but I haven't been able to pinpoint what triggers the start of the log file generation – it isn't consistently doing it, but it does occur multiple times per day.

  15. 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…

    Hi,

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

  16. 特定の条件でテキストの中窓部が斜線で塗りつぶされる

    再現方法
    サイズA4で新規アートボードを作成
    「要冷凍」というテキストオブジェクトをサイズ15ptで作成
    このテキストにアピアランス「パスのオフセット:0.05mm」を適用する
    アートボードの座標をX座標 100mm、Y座標 -148mmに変更
    「要冷凍」テキストの座標をX座標 197mm、Y座標 -2.1mmに変更
    文字の塗り潰しが添付画像のようになる(座標は全て左上起点)

    テキストをアウトライン化しても発生する
    どのようなフォントでも発生する
    同じような大きさの複合パスでも発生する
    線幅では発生しない

    以下の環境で確認
    MacOS 10.15.7
    Adobe Illustrator 26.0.1
    Adobe Illustrator 25.4.2
    Adobe Illustrator 24.3

    Windows10 Pro
    Adobe Illustrator 24.3(64bit)

    通常作成される、座標(X0,Y0)のアートボードで、版面左上端にテキストがかかっている場所で発生するようだ。普通こんな位置にテキストは置かないが、アートボードの座標がたまたまY軸方向にマイナス(上)X軸方向100mmの位置にあると、版面の真ん中で発生してしまう。文字というより複合パスで発生しているようである。

    対処方法
    アートボードの座標をリセットして、当該オブジェクトを適当な位置に移動して戻すと解消する。
    必要がなければ線幅で対応する。

    ご報告いただきました問題につきまして、再現が確認できました。

    「パスのオフセット」効果が適用されている文字の中マド部分の直線と、「Y軸 = 0」のラインが重なる場合に発生するようです。
    簡単に「田」や「A」の字で再現できました。

    今後の開発進捗などはこちらでご報告させていただきます。

  18. 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.

  19. 行頭禁則文字に関わる和欧文間隔をカスタマイズ可能に!

    Illustratorの日本語組版で、たとえばプリセットの文字組アキ量設定「行末約物半角」を元に、和欧文間隔を「0%」にカスタマイズしても、そのカスタマイズの結果は、何故か「行頭禁則文字」に分類される文字種には効果がありません。
    ※添付ファイルをご参照くださいませ(macOS Catalina上のCC2021にて作成)。

    日本語組版の中では、デフォルトの「25%」アキを「12.5%」あるいは「0%」としたいという作業は少なからず発生しますが、上記のような挙動では、作業者の負担になるばかりです。

    可能であれば、「文字組アキ量設定和欧文間隔のカスタマイズが、行頭禁則文字にも効くように」改善することを希望します。
    挙動を変更していただければ、作業者の負担も軽減され、喜んで受け入れられるに違いありません。

    なお、このような挙動の変更は、「文字組みアキ量設定に頼らずなんらかの方法で和欧文間隔を変更した既存ファイル」にはあまり影響がないものと考えますが、変更していただくならば、【その変更を周知】していただくことは大切なことだと申し添えておきます。

    よろしくお願いします。
