  1. Bitmaps not coping over from Ai to Xd in version 2018, had to revert to 2017.

    Fix version 2018 to also copy bitmaps with vector art in Ai and past it directly in Xd, as with version 2017.

  2. Input boxes handle keypresses inconsistently

    This is an intermittent bug.

    When typing in input boxes I find that performance can be inconsistent. Sometimes, the cursor will jump to the end of the string inside the box, so I end up appending after the unit (e.g. "406 px+7"), which then errors.

    Another example is the input box just not inserting characters at all. It seems especially prone to missing arithmetic characters such as + or - or /. For example, I meant to type "300+100 px" but instead it ignores the plus and displays "300100 px", which then error because it's too big.

    I've attached a…

  3. Dell Canvas Pen Dysfunction

    I've had pretty consistent issues getting the Dell Canvas and Illustrator to play nice with each other, and it's gotten totally out of control with version 2018. Although some pen functionality has improved, there's one bizarre roadblock... there's a good 7 second delay when selecting objects with the selection tool (which can be cut short by moving the mouse). Using my finger directly on the touch screen works fine, but the pen is almost unusable for this reason.

  5. Export Artboards "Name" Error

    I exported first one Artboard of 2 or 3 in the beginnning of a design process, the changed the names in the end of all 3 artboards to the projectname. The first artboard still kept the original name ("artboard 01" or else) so i had to rename by hand this file. Pretty weird.

  6. Font does not look good

    Your version of Adobe Illustrator: CC 22.0.0 (64-bit)

    Your expected result: I expected that fonts will preview correctly
    Your actual result: I've attached an image. First text is with a type, second is after I use create outlines.

    Thank you very much

  7. 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).

    Most likely cause would be graphics driver on your machine. Please upgrade graphics drivers to see it resolves the issue. If it still does not. Please get in touch with us at sharewithai@adobe.com or any of the other support channels – https://helpx.adobe.com/support.html .

  10. AI 18 won't launch

    I upgraded to the new AI18 from CC and it fails to launch on startup. It fails at the point it is initializing the plug-ins. I am using a Surface Pro 2 with Windows 10. AI17 worked fine and reinstalled and it still works. Any help would greatly be appreciated.

  11. CC 2018 PGN Exporting looking worse than CC 2017

    When using Adobe Illustrator CC 2017 back then, exporting a HUGE resolution, Inked Lineart via File->EXport As->PNG-> High 300 ppi + Art Sampled + Transparent..

    Whenever i open that file on Photoshop CC 2017, the line art looks CRISP, stylish, soft, with no dead pixels like showing off..And Photoshop CC 2017 detects it with a 19kx20k Resolution.

    NOW, when using THE SAME EXPORT SETTINGS but on illus' CC 2018, the exporting looks instant...Oh yeah, great... But when i open it on PSCC2017....The lineart looks VERY THIN, 1px like, with greyed out dead pixels.

    Please do NOT break out what's working…

  14. Save command does not include latest edits

    Illustrator 2018. First day using this and its extremely buggy, while working on a drawing, everytime I hit save it takes the file back several steps (like a shortcut for multiple undo's). What makes this even more annoying is that you cannot access any redo. Its as though hitting save deletes the latest memory cache of the changes you've made in the previous 10 minutes.

  16. UI Not Scaling Down

    After updating to the 2018 version of Illustrator, I found that the UI wasn't scaling to the proper resolution. I expected it to be proper & have smaller buttons & such. In reality, all of the tools & toolbars are bloated like it's scaled to 200%.

  19. right click menu option silliness

    Why, when i right click on an object to bring up the menu and go to a submenu that has an arrow pointing to the right, the submenu opens up on the left? It has done this since i upgraded from CS6 and seems silly... the only time it opens in the direction of the arrow is if you are working on something on the left side of monitor... which is also silly since i prefer to work more or less in the wide open areas of my monitor ;)

  20. Error on Launch: "There is no disk in the drive" -

    I figured out that I only get this error when my USB3 memory card reader is connected to my computer, but it is ridiculous. I have to click cancel 30+ times in rapid succession and then Illustrator will launch, but I can't find ANYWHERE in Illustrator that is referencing my E:/ drive - HELP!
