  1. AI smartobject doesn't open from Photoshop

    This is an old bug THAT IS BACK!!! Double clicking an AI smart object in photoshop opens Illuistrator but it doesn't open the object. You have to close Illustrator completely and do it over again until it works.

  2. Illustrator problem

    This is not ethical. I know that. But I want to publish this video. Just explain to me why these problems are caused. I've never seen any logical explanations until this time. And that makes me sad.
    Illustrator is very clumsy, slow, has bad performance, interface bad and exhausting.
    Example, I can't easily apply effects on an object or text. Restricts me with everything. These are very simple and the features that should be. I'm sure a lot of people think that.

    Affinity is small size, more practical and user-friendly, faster and cheaper.
    Many of your competitors come up with…

  4. No display of document when opened in ADOBE.

    Document does not display when I scan to computer and then open it. However, when I've attached to an email, I can open and view it. I have a Lenovo, so its not just a MAC issue

  6. copy and paste only works sporadically with Wacom tablet. All AI versions up to CC 23.0.2

    From at least version CS6 to CC 23.0.2 copy/paste when using a Wacom tablet only functions some of the time and I can't figure out a pattern to the behaviour. Using a mouse on the same system had no such problems. This is either using shortcut keys or the Edit menu commands. Problem on Win 7 Pro, although I've heard reports of it occurring on other O/S. This may be a partner to the "sticky rotate centre" issue reported elsewhere and which also occurs on my system.

  7. Artboard Navigation control at bottom of screen v 23.0.2 (newest update)

    Artboard Navigation control at bottom of screen shows up in the middle of the the screen when I use my larger screen. When I drag the window to my small screen and then back to the large screen, the artboard navigation control is back at the bottom. If I open a new file, the navigation control is back in the middle of the screen. This is version 23.0.2 (dowloaded and installed 3/6/19)

  10. start up screen flashing black and white

    when i open adobe illustrator the screen flashes black and white continuously and the menus close instantly when i click on them. i can open a new document by pressing ctrl n but cannot click on any of the menus.
    this only happens when i am signed in, which i need. i can sign out by quickly clicking the sign out button in the help menu before it closes again, but this is not ideal.
    this only happens in illustrator CC 2015, not photoshop.

  11. Illustrator won't open any files

    Since the new update I am completely unable to open any AI or PDF file in Illustrator. Nothing will open, just the rainbow ball of death forever until I have to Force Quit. I've uninstalled Illustrator and even installed earlier versions with no luck. I've 'repaired' Creative Cloud with also no luck.

    I'm working on MacOS High Sierra (10.13.6), Illustrator v23

    A couple times I've gotten an error message that says: "cannot open ___ file because this file does not exist."

    Please help!

  14. Uninstalling old version breaks windows preview handler for new version.

    When uninstalling an older version of illustrator, the windows preview handler for AI files gets removed such that it no longer functions for newer versions of illustrator that are already installed. The only resolution is to uninstall the newer version and reinstall which can be a pain, or manually modify the registry entries to assign the PDF handler to AI files.

  16. graph

    When changing data in the graph data panel, it's changing the style of the graph itself. I'm used to the graph tool being rubbish, but this is now applying a gradient swatch to all the axis lines when it was previous set to no colour.

  17. update

    Come on now! I am in AI and open a file to work on when a popup appears telling me that a new version of AI is available. However, when the update 'button' is selected nothing happens! There used to be a check for updates under Help yet that does not exist anymore. When it did exist it worked. So what is gong on now? More frustration with AI!

  19. 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?
    I'm running Win10 64-bit.

  20. 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.
