  2. Fix Adobe Illustrator CC 2020 Type Library Reference - VB scripts return error

    We need to always keep the version of Adobe Illustrator CC up to date.
    Recently, the CC version used by the company has been upgraded from 2019 to 2020.

    We use the attached .NET Illustrator library module.

    As with other similar cases, I believe Adobe will solve it.

    Older versions work fine.

  3. CC Libraries import yields progress indicator for thumbnail

    With the most recent release of Illustrator (23.1.1) on a Mac running Catalina 10.15 Beta, any time I drag an item into the Libraries panel, a thumbnail fails to appear (instead I get a persistent animated progress indicator). I'm able to see the correct thumbnail of the imported item in other Adobe apps (Photoshop and InDesign), as well as online (Libraries --> View on Website). Only after I restart Illustrator do they appear.

  4. Fonts missing and say I need to re log in

    When I open a past project from creative cloud folder It directs me to find a missing font. But the font finder doesn't sync to my library. Now Im stuck with a missing font on a logo project that just messed my whole design up. Plus when I export the project as a export safe for web... png 24 the file export look pixellated and not a vector file.

  5. TIFF images as assets in CC Libraries are always placed as PNG images on the artboard

    1. Affected: Illustrator CC all versions that are working with CC Libraries.
      Tested with Illustrator CC 2019 version 23.0.3 on Windows 10. Illustrator versions on Mac OS X are also reported.

    2. Steps to reproduce the issue:
      Do a new CC Library.
      Add TIFF images saved from PhotoShop CC 2019 to the new library.
      Two options how you can do this that I know of:
      A. Drag the files from your file system to the open and empty library.
      B. Use Adobe Bridge CC 2019 to drag files to the open library.

    3. Expected result:
      If I want to use an image TIFF…

  6. Libraries stuck in "Add Multiple Assets"

    macOS Mojave 10.14.3

    This happens to me daily. My entire CC library will grey out and is stuck with the "add multiple assets" icon. I can kind of see what's underneath, but in order to get rid of this, I have to completely quit illustrator and reopen.

  7. Illustrator graphics from the Library are distorting when I "Option Click and Drag"

    First off this is only happening to me in Illustrator 2018. I just did an update over the weekend, and have been facing a number of bugs ever since. But the one I still havent figured out is this one. In my CC libraries, my team and I utilize it for vector icons. When I drag an icon into my file, it looks correct, but I cannot edit the colors. So when I "Option click and drag", it gives me the option to edit the icon, but it is distorting it by squishing it vertically. Has anyone else encountered this…

  10. Linked assets in CC Libraries render "file not readable"

    Having assets linked in CC Libraries renders the master AI file unreadable on another machine, despite being signed in on the same account. If I open the file on the original computer and collect it to a local folder, the file opens. This defeats the purpose of the Library.

  11. Creative Cloud is not syncing

    Creative Cloud files are constantly syncing in Illustrator. They don't show up online either. However, if I try to stop syncing through the app preferences it just displays error screens. I am on a Mac using High Sierra. log attached.

  12. Symbols and CC Libraries

    So there is a bug with symbols being used in CC Libraries that I came across. If you place a symbol on something and apply a type of appearance effect, like a warp, you are unable to place or open up that file again in the CC Library. You will get an error that says "Can't open the illustration".

  13. Library Disappears

    After I use Illustrator for a while, the library disappears (seemingly without provocation). The library comes back if I restart illustrator (but then I have to close all the files I was working on and open them again).

  14. Cloud Documents Do Not Open (Urgent)

    There is a bug that I have been experiencing for some time with my cloud documents in Adobe Illustrator. Like any other day at work, I'll open up illustrator and go to open one of my cloud files that are accessible on the home screen under 'your files'. However, these files for some reason have become unresponsive to my clicking on them. Double-clicking on them to open results in absolutely nothing happening. I can move the file around to new folders and other functions under the three dots, but I cannot simply open the file by clicking on it. This…

  17. Paragraph Style -> Library Bug (Stroke Weight Lost)

    If you create a paragraph style with a thin outline (e.g. 0.25) different from the fill color, and then add that style to the library, the library does not record the weight assigned to the stroke (e.g. 0.25). See images. Note that "Annotations Red", and "Annotations Red Lib" are the same style, I renamed it to prevent an overwrite. As you can see, though the fill and outline colors are correct, the stroke weight resets to default.

    Also your system doesn't allow me to upload screen shots (.jpeg). Not sure what that's about. Here's a link to the my screencaps:

  18. CC Libraries Convert "/" to Groups Popup Prompt

    CC Libraries Convert "/" to Groups Popup Prompt will not go away when "back to libraries" is selected after a click on anything in libraries pops back up again preventing any access to library. After much frustration, clicked "Convert" and has now destroyed the organization of my library by creating many empty groups and arbitrarily grouping other items.

    This was a huge library that took a lot of time to build, so I would love if it could be restored to its original stated before this "improvement".

  19. Font Missing from Library Asset: Infinite Loop

    I tried to place an asset from Materials Library. A dialogue warns of a missing font, but I cannot recover from this as it infinitely appears with no option to cancel the attempt to place the asset.

    There really needs to be a way to recover from errors / faults, UX 101, had to use Program Manager to kill processes.

  20. Some process, probably library syncing, overwrote graphic updates

    Almost lost half a day's work. Though I lost a bunch of time and productivity figuring out how to get it back.

    A library graphic got overwritten by an older version of that library graphic by something other than a human being.

    I was working in Illustrator 26.0.1 and Photoshop 22.5.2 at the same time on a Windows 10 machine. I had the graphic as a Smart Object in Photoshop. But since it's a graphic it was being edited in Illustrator.

    I also had Illustrator 26.0.1 opened on my Windows 10 laptop cause that's where I do my pen work,…
