  1. Illustrator holds on to dwg/dxf files untill it's quit

    If a dwg/dxf file is opened, imported or even looked at by illustrator, then those files can't be moved, renamed, deleted or modified at all until illustrator is quit. Windows shows the error "Can't do 'x' because the file is still open in Illustrator.
    Seems to be a 2020/2021 issue as 2019 doesn't do the bug.

  3. UI freezes, then crashes. Can't save.

    Last version is pretty unstable. Can't work with it, crashed several times since the update i made this morning. While working, UI freezes (but some tools are still availaible via keyboard shortcut), then crashes without message. Can't save when UI is freezed.

    I'm going back to the previous version. Aren't you ashamed that EVERY TIME we update, softs become unusable for professionnal purpose?

    Ho, and when will get ******' keyboard shortcut to rename layers? Is it in the current update at last?

  5. Pasting previously copied objects to random places

    Illustrator pastes copied objects to random places outside of the view area.
    I have to zoom out and look for the pasted object somewhere outside the artboard. Since updated to the latest version of the software. Also updated the OS to High Siearra to give you a full picture.

  6. インストール時に同梱されるStartup Scriptのファイル名称が更新されていない

    OS macOS10.15.7
    バージョン Illustrator ver.26.0

    Illustratorをインストールした際にバンドルされるStartup Scriptである「/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Startup Scripts CC/Illustrator 2022/illustrator-20.0.jsx」ですが、このファイル名が数バージョン前から更新されていません。
    これはAdobe Bridge CCにおけるStarup Scriptの読み込みに影響を与えます。直近の2021と2020に関して書きますが、この2つはBridge起動の際にコンフリクトを起こし読み込まれません。

    対処方法
    1.ファイル名の是正
    Startup Script内の各ファイル名を変更します。Illustrator 2021内には「illustrator-20.0」フォルダと「illustrator-20.0.jsx」ファイルが存在しますが、これらをそれぞれ
    illustrator-21.0
    illustrator-21.0.jsx
    とします。
    同様に、Illustrator 2022内「illustrator-20.0」フォルダと「illustrator-20.0.jsx」を
    illustrator-22.0
    illustrator-22.0.jsx
    とします。
    また、ファイル内のXML部分もIllustratorでは全て同一の文面となっています。これはBridgeに読み込まれた場合に全て同じ表示となり、バージョンの特定が不可能になります。
    これは、以下のように「dc:title」部分を以下のようにすべきでしょう。

    <ScriptInfo xmlns:dc="http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/" xml:lang="ja_JP">
    <dc:title>Adobe Illustrator CC 2022/dc:title
    <dc:description>このスクリプトを使用して、他のアプリケーションと Adobe Illustrator CC 2022 を通信させることができます。/dc:description
    </ScriptInfo>

    以上の処理でBridgeがStartup Scriptを正常に読み込むようになります。

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

    ご報告いただきました「../Startup Scripts CC/Illustrator 2022/」 内の「illustrator-20.0」フォルダ名と「illustrator-20.0.jsx」ファイル名についての問題を macOS と Windows にて確認いたしました。

    「illustrator-20.0.jsx」ファイル冒頭のビルド情報には、「@@@BUILDINFO@@@ “illustrator-26.0.jsx”」と記述されていますので、正しいファイル名は「illustrator-26.0.jsx」と思われます。
    従いまして、フォルダ名も「illustrator-26.0」になると思われます。

    また、ファイル内部の XML部分の「dc:title」、「dc:description」のバージョン記述ですが、製品名から「CC」は削除されておりますので、「Adobe Illustrator 2022」になると思われます。

    担当エンジニアにフィードバックし、どのように修正されるか確認できましたら、こちらでご報告いたします。

    今後ともよろしくお願いいたします。

  7. 画像をコピー&ペーストするとスライスの設定が消失します

    MacOSX 11.4
    Illustrator ver.25.3.1

    ドキュメント間で画像のコピー&ペーストを行なうと、ペーストしたドキュメントの矩形に付与したスライスの設定が消失してしまいます。
    画像を含まないオブジェクトのコピー&ペースト、ドキュメント間でのドラッグ&ドロップによる画像の複製では再現しません。

  9. Graph Pie Chart can't expand or resize

    Graph tool Pie Chart can't expand or resize. This seems like a legacy bug that has crept back. Some threads online from 2013 reporting same issue. All transform fields are grayed out, when I go to expand in menu nothing happens no error no nothing. It did not used to be like this. I really wish that every time you did an update adobe you did not break a bunch of just standard features that used to work.

  10. automatic quitting when clicking the red close button

    When clicking on the RED "Close" button, Illustrator prompts me to either (Save what's on the clipboard" or "Discard". Then automatically quits. EVERY SINGLE TIME. This is NOT right no matter what your tech support peons were told to say.

  11. In Adobe Illustrator Constrain Width and Height proportions doesnt work

    I don't know why but 'Constrain Width and Height proportions doesn't work
    in 'Transform' or 'Properties' panel

    Whenever I constrain and move the number up, it creates a weird number
    for example, if the shape is 60,60 and when I write down 70 on the height the width becomes 69.256 something like this

    so frustrating!!!!!!!!!

  12. undo is broken

    Undo is just wonky. I hit Undo, and rather than just stepping back one step, it jumps several actions backward, and the Redo steps can't even get back to where I was. I wish I could provide more info, but it's just jacked, so I can't trace the problem.

  14. Illustrator Crashing when opening files

    When I'm working in Illustrator and I have another file I want to open, I'll double-click open a file and Illustrator will stop responding. I'll need to quit using the task manager and open the files again.

    I had a work-around of opening a file from File > Open, but now that just crashed my illustrator file as well.

    I'm working on Windows 10. Unfortunately I can't share my files, but it's been happening across several projects. Can't pin-point a specific issue.

  15. Selection of multiple text objects - changing font not working

    We can no longer change the font of multiple text objects at once.
    When multiple text objects are seleted, Ai thinks this is a 'mixed selection' and does not come up with the typeface selector. Slowing down my work incredibly.

  16. Crashes when closing Illustrator

    After saving the file I am working on and selecting to clear the data on the clipboard (or even if I select not to clear the data), Illustrator will freeze and the bring up the Adobe Crash report dialogue box.

    I have tried to provide feedback in this box, but if I change any of the settings on the Crash report box or type any comments, this too crashes. Windows registers the programme as not responding and tries to find a solution (and doesn't find any) and then closes Illustrator.

    In some cases, when I next open Illustrator it will…

  17. Sudden problem with embedded bitmaps

    I use embedded bitmaps for additional texture in my illustration. Since recently updating to the newest version of Adobe Illustrator CC, suddenly I am encountering a lot of problems with these-- they print irregularly, and create glitches when saving to some formats, like pngs. I have never encountered problems like this before.

  18. Error using picas

    This error has existed in Illustrator since at least version 10, in 2001.

    1. Switch units to Picas in Preferences > Units… or by right-clicking in the ruler and selecting Picas.

    2. Select any object.

    3. Go to Object > Transform > Move…

    4. Enter a negative value higher than -1p0. e.g. -0p9.

    5. Watch as the value is converted to a positive and the object moves to the right, or don, not to the left or up.

    In earlier versions of Illustrator this bug exited across the application in any dialogue that excepted a distance, including Offset Path, Effect > Convert to Shape (using…

  20. Transform > Mirror does not work properly

    Illustrator Version 25.0.1 german (Funktion SPIEGELN)

    Sometimes if i use many time the mirroring function this mistake comes

    An object is mirrored, (Funktion SPIEGELN in german) axis VERTICAL.

    The object is copied, mirrored again and he remembers the last setting and is mirrored again on the VERTICAL axis.

    Then suddenly in between he suggests the ANGLE axis.

    This problem happens after using many times this function mirror, and not evray time very strange.

    I never saw anything like this in the old versions.

    I work with Illustrator all day and something like that is for me noticeable.
