  1. Opacity bug

    AI CC 2018
    I turned the opacity down on a selection to see below layers. Then I went to work on below layers. Upon returning to original layer and re-selecting the object to return it to 100% opacity it showed I was already at 100%. I could not get it back to 100% until I copied and pasted the object to a new layer.

    Need More Info  ·  Anish Kumar responded

    Hi,

    It seems like opacity is applied on the Layer and not on the object inside that layer. It is possible that the user is selecting object inside the layer and not the layer itself. Hence the user is able to see the opacity of object which is 100% in this case and not the changed opacity of layer.

  2. Color discripancy between "View on CPU" and "View on GPU" on a Mac with M1 chip

    I'm now running AI on a macbook pro with M1 chip.
    I noticed that when I switching "View on CPU" to "GPU", all colors became whiter and inaccurate (images inserted in AI became much whiter than the objects created and colored in AI).
    I've checked my older Macbook pro with intel CPU and AMD graphic card, the colors keep the same and accurate when I switch from CPU to GPU.

  3. Gradient stroke cannot be cut and pasted.

    Reproduction:


    1. Draw a path with a gradient stroke and no fill.

    2. Select and cut or copy the path.

    3. Paste. Normally, In Front, Behind, or In Place.

    4. The expected result is, of course, a new copy of this gradient-stroked path.

    5. Actual results range from a copy of the path with the stroke expanded, an image that was cut and paste sometime last week, or an error popup that says "This operation cannot complete because of an unknown error [PDF!]"

    Seen on OSX 10.14.6 with AI 24.1 and AI 24.1.2.

  7. Issues with changing tint by typing in % value and hitting Return key

    Illustrator 2018 CC 22.0.1
    Mac OS El Capitan 10.11.6

    As per video, after typing in a numerical value for a tint on a global colour in the Color Panel and hitting Return, the value defaults back to original value. In my video, it shows that it’s having issues with values of 50% and 100% but this occurs randomly and can happen with different tint values.

  8. CMYK values changes

    On opening existing file and embedded profile mismatch, selecting "Convert doument's colors to the working space". will change K=100% to black defined in all CMYK values.
    However opening the file keeping embeeded profile and hereafter assign the profile keeps the values intact

    3. Swatch is not global as stated in https://helpx.adobe.com/illustrator/using/whats-new.html

  10. Touch Bar Color Controls are Broken

    Touch bar controls do not change the color of objects when using sliders, and swatches save to touch bar but not to actual swatches panel. Cannot delete swatches from Touch Bar.

  12. Eye Dropper picks up the wrong values when sampling a filled clipping mask

    I am using Mac OS 10.15.7 and am able to consistently reproduce this bug in both AI CC 2021 but as far back as AI CS5 running in Mac OS 10.6.8

    When a fill is applied to a clipping mask, the eye dropper will pick up incorrect CMYK/RGB values. This is especially problematic when a pure black is replaced by a 4 color process build in the printing industry.

    I would expect to eye drop the exact values applied to the object I've clicked on.

  14. Apply gradient across stroke

    I have applied a gradient to my brush tool. I want to change the stroke so that the gradient is across the stroke. I click on that option, but the appearance of my stroke does not change.

  15. Eyedropper not selecting color outside Illustrator new bug v25.1

    I have always been able to drag the eyedropper tool outside of the illustrator window to sample colors - until v25.1

    Now, all colors sampled outside are black or greyscale. I am holding shift to override the Appearance setting in Eyedropper options. This is a new bug.

    I'm on MacOS 10.15.7

  17. Color Profile Keeps Changing

    Hi,

    My RGB colour settings keep changing back to display. I have the original file set up as sRGB IEC61966-2.1 and when I copy and past anything in I get a warning if there are any colour mismatch issues. If there are any issues I click assign working profile. When I close and reopen that file it has now changed to Display.

    I'm using
    macOS Catalina Version 10.15.17
    Illustrator Version 25

    I'm work on branding projects so it's important that colors are consistent. How do I get illustrator to stop changing my color profiles?

  18. Problem deleting Spot Color

    When I attempt to delete Pantone swatch for the swatch that's being used in my design, it should give us the warning to replace color just like InDesign. Instead, it just converts the color to CMYK without you even knowing which is a problem when you're trying to make sure you're only working with limited spot colors in the document. I remember getting warnings before like InDesign does... is this something new in the application? Could you please fix this issue?

  19. Illustrator is changing my colors

    I'm working on Interl(R) Core(TM) i7-8565U CPU, Windows 10 Family. Latest version of Illustrator.

    I put the right colors on my Artwork on illustrator but as soon as I save it and reopen it, the colors changed. It stays in a dark green but it's never exactly the one I put in the first place.

    Example: I put #336633, save it. When I reopen it, it has changed in #006633 or 336733 ot 316738 or 356633 or even 40683c or 789c4a

  20. Align Stroke on live text not working

    I have written out some text and trying to align the stroke to the outside or inside and this isn't working, I have tried this on two different Windows computers.

    Both computers are using Windows 10 Pro and Illustrator 24.0.1

    I have attached a video so you can see the bug, I also show it on two fonts and a shape which works but the alignment of a stroke and stroke profile don't work on live text.
