  1. Transform effect + Arc effect together give wrong appearance

    I have group with 3 vectorized brush strokes (each is a group itself).
    I want it's height to be scaled twice and then to be distorted to arc.
    I apply Transform Effect and then Arc effect.
    I expect group to look like bottom one, but it looks as top one!
    The bottom set is group actually scaled and distorted, the top set is group with two effects applied — it looks like AI22 scales each path within two-level group and then apply Arc to main group.

  2. No longer able to use the arrow up/down keys to nudge artwork!

    For some reason the arrow keys stopped working after the lastest upgrade. arrrrgh… I cannot use the up/down arrow keys to nudge artwork anymore. My workaround is to open the transform tool/panel, and play with the “X” or “Y” numbers to get a little “nudge”… so annoying! The only thing that changed on my end was that I updated the Illustrator software recently, so thinking this is an Adobe issue and not user error. Can you please fix this? Macbook pro (Retina mid 2014) OS X El Capitan.

  3. Releasing envelope inside AI from smart object from PS crashes AI

    I have pasted art from AICC2018 as smart object inside PS.
    I have saved and closed this art in AI (just in case).

    Now I double-click smart object inside PS and it AI opens embedded art (not that saved separate file, of course). I select envelope in this embedded art, try to release it and AI crashes.

    If I try to open separate saved copy and try to release envelope — it works fine.
    If I copy and paste art from embedded file into new file and then try to release envelope —it still works fine.
    Please try this yourself…

  4. Font Suggestion/Preview Font NOT Working

    When I select my text box and then go to the Font pull down menu, I used to be able to use my arrow key and scroll through the font menu. While doing this the font box in my document would preview the fonts. Now I literally have to mouse over the font in the menu, which IS EXTREMELY ANNOYING and time consuming. Please fix this feature!!!

    Or I could start typing in a font and Illustrator would suggest fonts as I type - this no longer work either.

  5. Export as PNG includes all hidden artboards into dimensions of image (V24.1)

    The latest release of Illustrator no longer exports just the active content of a file, but now also includes the dimensions of all the inactive (hidden) content in a file. PNG bug 2 shows the export of a single item in an artwork with many layers and items with just the visible item (in version 24.02), PNG bug shows the same export in the 24.1 version of Illustrator, which includes the outermost dimensions of all the hidden content. It is therefore no longer possible to export a single shape from a larger design with the dimensions of that shape.
    Please…

  8. illustrator crashes when opening existing files

    Adobe illustrator crashes when opening existing files. After two complete re-installations (one of which was preceded by CC Cleaner), on a new machine running MacOS Catalina, the first Illustrator startup is correct. But Illustrator quits as soon as I try to open a file, even if that file has just been saved by this version.
    Other CC softwares are not affected.

  9. Scaling segment scales another segment handle

    I want to scale a segment of a path, so it's handles would have more length. I select this segment with Direct Selection, then pick Scale tool, hit Enter and set uniform scale. Strangely, this scale not only handles of my segment, but one handle of the segment NEXT TO ADJACENT, one segment away. I don't need it.

    Attached screen recording shows this unselected handle anchor in pink circle. After I scale my segment, position of the handle changes, although my actions should not have affect it.

    Sadly, the issue must have been a very specific one and can’t be reproduced anymore by the description only, and the recording seems to be lost. So it’s either fixed or extremely rare. If you can replicate it, please share the case again.

  10. Save for Web (Legacy) does not clip transparency to visible layers as it did previously

    "Save for Web (Legacy)" , previously, when saving to PNG with transparency and NOT clipped to artboard, the transparency would clip to visible layers. Now it clips to existing layers, even when the layers are not visible.
    Details previously posted in an Illustrator forum:

  12. Changing size of area type shape with mixed font style changes all characters to one font style

    I was using trial version of Illustrator CC 2017. I just purchased for a year and upgraded to Illustrator CC 2018.

    Draw shape. Choose area type tool. Click path of bubble. Bubble disappears and is converted to Lorem Ipsum text with transparent path. Deselect object. Choose direct selection tool. Select the path. Choose default b/w stroke/fill. Now text is inside a white bubble with black outline. (I also used Type > Area Type Options > Inset Spacing to adjust margins inside the path, and First Baseline to X Height.)

    Now, use the Type tool to select one word. Under Properties…

  13. Ghost Trails

    Updated the new Illustartor and now have ghost trails (copies what ever it is I am dragging a million times) everytime I click and drag a picture or text. Cant see my work, or move anything. I can close the window and reopen it and sometimes it will go away until I click and drag something again.

  14. Constrain Angle Preference Setting

    When changed, the preference value for constrain angle does not work with shift drag in the latest version 21.1.0.

    Pen, shape tools and nudge keys appear unaffected.

    The changed value only works with shift drag after application restart.

  16. Illustrator CC won's allow me to update the artboard size in Options panel.

    When I change the width and height the size automatically reverts back to a size that is some 20 pixels off. I need the artboards to be precisely 2160x1920 which is the size they were when created, but somehow they change to different sizes like 2180x1916. When I try to update the size in the field, as soon as I click off the field the dimension goes right back to the old, incorrect dimension. I cannot save it out to the correct dimension. I can drag the size of the artboard with the artboard tool, but that is impossible to…

    前バージョンは問題がなかったのでバージョンアップによる不具合と思われます。

    It will take some time for font to be available inside Illustrator. Best way to check in the font has synced it to to Adobe creative cloud application and review the activity stream in Home tab.
    If it does not work even after the activity tab shows that the font was synced then either restart the Illustrator or wait for some time.
