  1. Decimal points added to values - Precision issues

    I am operating on Windows 10 and just updated to Ilustrator 24.3.

    I am having all kinds of massive issues with precision when working in files created between Illustrator 24.1 and the most recent update at 24.3. When I create text and set the point size, I'll come back later to find that it is "48.002 pts" and that the horizontal scale is at "99.9987%" and it is no longer aligned at x: 1 in., y: 1 in., but has moved to "x: 1.005 in" and "y: .9998 in." This happens will all kinds of objects, not just text. The…

  2. Current bugs that are making it nearly impossible to get work done

    As I type this, I'm reinstalling AI for the second time this month. This time without saved prefs. Please, Adobe, make this storied and remarkable piece of software STABLE before you talk about giving us new features. I don't want a new icon, I want not to have to explain to my boss that I didn't get anything done this morning because my industry-standard software didn't work.

  3. Ghost element sneaks in my groups

    Hi!!

    I encounter a bug in Illustrator. You will find the description below but also a video that explains a lot better what I am trying to say.
    1) OS: Windows
    Version: 10.0
    System Architecture: x64
    Illustrator version: 24.1.2

    2) When I just try to select a group from the active window.
    3) I expect to only select element from this group
    4) Somehow there is a ghost element that I can see alone when I unselect my group. This ghost stays there and mess up my resizing then..

  4. White pixel line around shapes

    Ever since Appearance was introduced, my artwork on screen suffers from a white pixel line around shapes. Seems a rendering problem: the line is not actually existing - zooming in does not make it thicker, it's always one pixel. Tried switching GPU off and on. No difference.
    The appearance of the black shape: Fill is black, Stroke is None.

  5. Direct Selection Tool not showing bounding box

    Hi,
    When I'm selecting an object using the Direct Selection Tool there is no bounding box to it or any other indication that the object is selected.
    I checked the View menu, and it is set on to show the bounding box, so I assume there is a bug causing this.
    It doesn't matter what kind of object I select, or whether it's in a group or not - the result is the same: no bounding box or even anchors are shown.

    I'm using the latest release - 23.0.1 on windows 10 (updated).

    Thanks
    Ori Manor

    It seems like the problem is not about the bounding box...

    If you don’t see anchors selected, please check if you have View > Show Edges enabled. It's easy to toggle it with Cmd/Ctrl + H, and it’s a common mishap.

    If that’s the thing for you (or not) — please comment back.


    As for the bounding box specifically (the frame with 8 scale/rotations markers) — it never shows up when using the Direct Selection tool, and never was, and should not.

    If you need to scale or rotate a partial selection of anchors, use Free Transform or Rotate or Scale tools instead.

  6. (signo precaución) No se pudo leer el archivo debido a un error

    Cuando coloco algunas imágenes (JPG, JPEG, etc.) Me aparece el mensaje escrito en el título "No se pudo leer el archivo debido a un error". Qué pasa!!, no entiendo? ayuda por favor, necesitó trabajar con las imágenes que no me permite abrir AI.

    Lo peor es que no solo me pasa con AI, también con PSD

  7. Illustrator freezes - must close using Task Manager

    Illustrator freezes, menus not accessible and/or if they open, it is blank. I can still select items on the artboard, but cannot use anything in menus and tools. Once Illustrator freezes, I cannot close unless I use the Task Manager.

  8. CC2018 Illustrator Multiply with CMYK colors and Windows 10 Fall Creators update (solid color)

    The latest Windows 10 update (Fall Creators) bugs out the Illustrators Multiply option when in CMYK setting. The Multiply option becomes a solid color instead of transparant and reacting with bottom color. When converting to RGB it works as intended and photoshop for example shows correct multiply in CMYK.

    current solution: revert back to older version of windows 10.
    ideal would be: adobe fixing issue

  9. Bad precision of the mouse/cursor

    I am using Illustrator CC2018 on a MAC OX Sierra.

    There is a huge issue with the precision of the cursor. It is super shaky, keeps on appearing/disappearing. It's worst when you hit Alt, cmd, or space. I can't see the tools I am using, for example, the cursor is always black, even if I am using the white cursor ( "A" tool).
    This is really annoying, even more when I try to work with my Intuos pen and tablet... It is simply impossible.
    Am I the only one experiencing that ?

  11. Charts and Graphs: x-axis number values shift when revising data in a bar graph

    When reconfiguring a bar chart with new data (as opposed to creating a new chart), the values at the bottom x-axis will shift on their y-axis, or in other words, their baseline will shift.

  14. Keyboard Shortcuts "Export Text..." file missing tab delimiter under "Menu Commands"

    Steps to repeat: go to Edit/ Keyboard Shortcuts/ "Export Text..."
    Then import the text file as a tab delimited data file in a spreadsheet of your choice.

    In Excel: go to Data/ Get Data/ From File/ From Text/CSV/, select the shortcuts txt file, set the delimiter to 'Tab' and click 'Load'.

    Look down the rows and at the menu commands...

    Expected behaviour:
    Edit/ Keyboard Shortcuts/ "Export Text..." should give me a consistently tab delimited file. This means, in the spreadsheet you should see the shortcut in the next column to the command (same row).

    Actual behaviour (on both Mac and…

  15. [Bug] Copy and paste broken - Unable to paste text without losing formatting, unable to paste shape+text

    Hi there,

    The copy and paste function within AI seems to have broken. This started a few days ago. I don't think there was a software update. No new software/hardware changes on my end either.

    Operating system: macOSX v11.4
    MBP (13" M1, 2020)
    No clipboard enhancements/plugins/apps

    Version of AI (Desktop): 25.4.1 and 25.3.1

    Steps:
    Scenario #1:
    Copying and pasting a shape with text, within the same artboard
    Result: Shape does not get pasted, text is pasted without original formatting, at Myriad Pro 12pt, changed from Area Type into Point Type.

    Scenario #2:
    Copying and pasting text, within the same artboard…

  17. long anchor point curve when zoomed in

    Windows 10
    25.3.1

    I used the Object > Expand on a stroke path I created
    When I zoom in to like 12750% or more, I see this long pen line that doesn't connect to the next anchor point, but when I zoom out it disappears like it was never there.
    It's nothing much, but it is annoying to keep seeing when I work.

    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。

    再現ファイルのご提供、および追加情報のご提供により、画面表示のグレーアウト現象を再現確認いたしました。

    ・使用マシンが Intel Mac
    ・環境設定の GPU パフォーマンスが無効
    ・複数ドキュメントを開いている
    ・開いている2番目以降のドキュメントで 1200% 以上にズームする

    上記のすべての条件が揃うと再現されますが、ズームアウトすると表示が戻ります。
    また、GPU パフォーマンスを有効にするほか、単一ドキュメントを開いてでの作業で現象を回避できます。
    この現象は、M1 Mac(M1 ネイティブ、および Rosetta 起動)では再現しません。

    今後、詳細な検証作業を行います。
    情報のアップデートがありましたら、こちらでご報告いたします。

  20. Color settings Reversing to default

    AI is constantly reverting back to a default color setting "Emulate Adobe Illustrator 6.0". Even after im made changes, saved the settings and pressed okay. When I quit the app and relaunch it, i lose my setting.

    This started after I updated Illustrator on March 9, 2021. Im running version: 25.2.1
