  1. Adding Vector Points after using Eraser and Scissor Tools

    When I use the eraser and scissor tools Illustrator decides to add points to my existing shape. In the image I have attached all lines should be straight or have a slight curve on the corners. I did not add those points and didn't even know they were there until I zoomed out. I just updated Illustrator to its current version. If someone else is having a similar issue or know how to fix it please let me know.

  2. Illustrator CC/Windows- When selecting multiple type boxes and lines it randomly deselects the group.

    When trying to align un-grouped lines and text boxes, it will deselect before I am able to move anything. I've updated to the most current version available (21.0.2) and reset preferences and am still having the same issue.

    Illustrator 製品フィードバックへのご協力ありがとうございます。

    ご報告いただいた「選択ツールで高さを変更できない」という現象ですが、最新バージョン「Illustrator 2021 (ver.25.4.1)」の Mac & Win OS ともに正しく動作しています。

    選択ツールでバウンディングボックスの上辺、または下辺のハンドルをドラッグしての高さ変更の操作でよろしいでしょうか?

    アプリの再起動、またマシンの再起動をしても再現するようでしたら、お手数をおかけいたしますが、カスタマーサポートにお問い合わせください。

    以上、よろしくお願いいたします。

  7. Minus Front - Incomplete Shapes

    This is an odd issue that is kind of hard to explain. Whenever I am using the minus front tool on some objects, the appearance doesn't end up quite right. For example, I subtracted these outlined text characters from a black background. The blue outlines show that they were subtracted correctly, but the white background showing through is cut off in the wrong spots?

  8. Illustrator loses focus after editing in group

    When a group is double clicked to edit inside (isolation mode), on leaving isolation mode the Illustrator application loses focus and clicking on any tool has no effect. To regain focus the icon in the Windows Taskbar has to be clicked.

  9. Appearance panel - Stroke on rectangle shape

    In appearance panel on the fill, I also add stroke to the fill. I get a line "outline stroke fx" in the appearance panel. And the popup says "click to edit effect". But nothing happens when I do.

    I wrote something similar as a feature request. But as you get the row with "outline stroke" as you should be able to edit, maybe it is a bug instead?

  11. blendtool

    Hi Adobe,

    I downloaded the new illustrator, 2019 version. Happy to see that the eyedropper tool can adopt colors from images again.
    However the BlendTool seems to be different. In earlier versions it was possible to ajust the line on which you blended certain shapes... It appeared between the shapes as a loose vector line. This line is gone now, the only thing I can ajust are the shapes which I blended.. Can you guys fix this again in an update?

    Thanks! Bjorn.

  12. Guides disappear until file is reopened

    I've created an isometric grid for illustration and converted the grid lines to guides. When I leave my document open for a while (maybe an hour or more) and come back to it after a lull in activity, my guides seem to be gone. The "Guides" item in the "View" menu is grayed out, and the keyboard shortcut Cmd+Shift+; to toggle guides on and off does not work. Nothing is hidden or locked in my document. Closing and reopening the document immediately fixes the issue, with guides toggling on off when prompted. There's clearly a bug here, figured I should…

  13. Wacom incaccuracy when resizing objects

    Wacom (Intuos5 - L - newest drivers)
    Clean OSX high sierra
    MBPPRO mid2015
    New illustartor

    There is some bug with precise operating with wacom.
    I can't resize simple object with bounding box.

    When i try to do this, in 99% cases object is rotating instead of resizing.

    When i use trackpad - there is no problem.

    cc, cc2017 / 18 / 19 Still innacurate precision.

  14. Toolbar panel won't stay long & skinny when docked

    The toolbar panel on the left, when docked to the left side of the screen, will not stay long & skinny (after pressing the double arrow) when I close and reopen Illustrator. It always goes back to short & fat. If I undock it, Illustrator remembers the orientation just fine. This happens even when I save a new workspace.

  15. Centering guides

    Illustrator CC 2019 - 23.01:
    When guides are grouped it is impossible to center this group in de page by using the "alignment on artbord tool". This was working until Illustrator 2017.

  16. Using the direct selection tool on a path, whilst holding ‘shift’ to drag causes crashes/can’t preview.

    Mac Mojave 10.14.1 > Illustrator 23.0.1.

    This issue does one of 3 things:

    

1/ the path repeatedly snaps back to the origin (Annoying).

    2/ the path extends vertically top to bottom off the artboard causing ‘cannot preview’ issue. Although this is fixed with an undo and selecting view using GPU/CPU. (Really Annoying).

    3/ Illustrator hangs and becomes unresponsive (basically hammers my system resources) and I have to force quit or it just crashes. (Ridiculously Annoying).

  17. Draw Inside Object problems

    I am working on an Apple Mac OS Sierra Version 10.12.6.

    In Illustrator I can't use the draw inside objects, Draw Normal and Draw Behind are enabled, not Draw Inside?
    Thanks, Pam

  19. ctrl key to change the size of an object

    The ctrl key is supposed to make a square arround my selected object which lets me change the size of the object, but this function randomly stopped working.

  20. Compound shape bounding box issues

    MacOS Sierra (10.12.6)& illustrator 23.0.1

    A compound shape of multiple objects should be acting as a single object so its bounding box should maintan the same (as group's does) but it keeps resetting after any rotation.
