  1. Custom scripts from CC2108 not working in CC2019

    The big power of Illustrator is its ability to run scripts. I built my workflow around some important scripts. Upgrading to 2019 made them non-functional.

    It would be great, if there was a way to update scripts as well.

  2. Image Trace over a white square on color mode with 2 colors crashes Illustrator

    This is a bug that happens on all versions of Illustrator, even CC 2019, and regardless of OS.
    It's very specific, but here are the steps:
    Create a new document. Color Mode doesn't matter.
    Draw a square with only a white fill.
    Rasterize it. Resolution and color mode doesn't matter.
    Run Image Trace on it
    In the Image Trace settings, set the Mode to Color and the number of colors set to 2.
    Illustrator will crash.
    Try it out! The expected result is probably just the same as if the number of colors was set to 3 or anything else…

  3. QTWebEngine Page on MAC

    Hi,

    I have a plugin created for Adobe Illustrator CC 2017/2018.
    In the plugin I have a panel which acts as a container for a QTWebEngine page.
    The page consist of several text boxes where I can enter text.
    I can perform basic operations like cut/copy/paste/selection on windows but I am unable to perform these actions on Mac (Os El Capitan).
    What I observed is that on windows clipboard will allow saving text on pressing Ctrl+C/X/V but on MAC whenever I press Command+C/X/V on Illustrator, it is trying to invoke Edit menu for Cut Copy Paste and the control goes…

  5. Panels load on different screens

    Hello!

    My operating System is 64 bit Windows 10 and I have the latest 2018 CC version of Illustrator.

    The setup: I am working on 2 4K Monitors. 1 is a 32" LG and the other is the 24" Wacom Cintiq Pro. (However, this happens regardless of what type of monitor you have). I don't spread my workflow between monitors like some people do,. I prefer to have browsing on one and my Illustrator workspace on the other. However, since I do work with a Ciintiq I very often swap my workspace from my Cintiq back to my monitor. Here…

  6. High Sierra 10.13.6, AI 22.1 Scrolling bar and File bar not showing. Also all files will close without warning

    Picture of missing scroll and file bar below. Makes it almost impossible to work on projects.

    All files will close without warning, while I am working on them.

  8. Illustrator and taskbar auto-hide

    I use the auto-hide feature for my taskbar on my dual-monitor Windows machine (specs below), but for some reason in Illustrator ONLY, I have to click out of Illustrator to access my taskbar. This does not happen in Ps, Ae or Pr
    So, if I'm working in Illustrator I have my main panel on my left monitor and my panes on the right. I have to click on my desktop below my panes to access my taskbar. (see screen shot)

  9. Problem merging dates from CSV into graph

    When merging data into an Illustrator file to create a batch of bar graphs based on a group of CSV files, numerical dates merge into the graph data as numbers with decimals instead of dates. A 6/30/16 date merges into Illustrator as 6.00 and 12/31/16 becomes 12.00, so every date with the same month appears the same. This also messes up the graph, leaving the chart with two categories instead of one of the data columns being assigned to the x-axis.

    This includes when dates are formatted (in Excel) as text, and when the dates include hyphens or periods instead…

  13. Adobe Illustrator has found an error it can't correct

    How do I deal with the Adobe Illustrator error message "Adobe Illustrator has found an error it can't correct"? It shows up for one Illustrator file but not others. Why does it give me this pop up every time?

  14. New from Template...

    In version 22.1 ”New from Template...” command works just like ”Open...” command. Earlier version ”New from Template” opens always template files from Cool Extras folder.

  16. Option key does not work at all.

    My option key(s) suddenly doesn't function AT ALL, not in CC2018, nor CS5.1. Tried multiple keyboards, and two different iMacs, one running Sierra and the other High Sierra. Tried all updates to no avail. Works fine on my Mac at work running CC2017. Please help with this problem. It's crazy frustrating.

  17. Opening CC 2015 files that have missing links causes the program to hang/crash

    Old 2015 save files which have a missing linked file cause CC 2018 to hang when opening the file. Opening the file in 2015 bring up the dialogue box 'missing file, do you want to continue to open'. It seems 2018 cant show the dialogue box or some strange bug so it hangs.
