  1. Illustrator refusing to show fonts in character search when typing with no drop down, illustrator cc 2018

    Changing font by clicking in the character search bar doesn't bring up the drop down or show the font changing... it's acting really buggy

    I am closing the ticket due to lack of response.
    Please get in touch with us at sharewithai@adobe.com or any of the other support channels – helpx.adobe.com/support.html . Please give a reference to this post so that we can identify you.
    Since this is not a generic issue that we can reproduce at our end, we will need someone to look into your machine to figure out what is going on here.

    Thanks

  2. Text size is not the same size as I set it

    How do I get illustrator cc 18 which I pay per month for, to apply text size the same size on the monitor as I pick in the layout?? If I put in for instance .50 size text it will be approx. .375 on the monitor or my layout. This is aggravating. It is something I am doing wrong or HOW DO I CORRECT THIS SO IT WILL BE THE SAME SIZE AS I CHOOSE. THANKS Jerry L. Evans Kokomo, Indiana. I had illustrator 6 on disk I purchased and had no problems like this.

  3. Text Formatting Bug

    Adobe Illustrator 22.1 (64-bit)

    Typing text within a single text box that requires different font styles formatting.

    While editing the text within the text box, in the last version (Illustrator 21), I could change up the font style of a font family and continue typing.

    But, in the updated version, if I change the font style (i.e. roman, bold, italic) I have to click back into the text box to continue typing. In addition, the change in formatting does not apply once clicked back into said text box. This requires me to type out whatever needs to be typed out…

  5. Wrapping text causes font changes and misalignment of text lines

    When I wrap text around a picture, the font completely changes and the text lines become offset from the actual text, making it impossible to edit text.

  6. warped text

    Trying to change font size after text has been Warped in Illustrator is not working correctly. It's just warping the text further, & not making it smaller.

  8. Cursor/Insertion point is invisible when navigating with arrow keys.

    AI 21.1.0

    Recreate by making a field with text in it, and then use the arrow keys to move your cursor to different positions.

    The initial state of the cursor is "off", so each time you move it you see nothing, which means you have no visual feedback as to where your cursor position is while you move it. You have to stop and wait for the first blink, which is contrary to how it works in all other software, on every OS, since the dawn of computers.

    Please help and thank you.

  10. cant copy text from illustrator and paste to indesign

    When I attempt to copy selected text characters (not the object) and paste in Indesign, I get outlined characters. I have to go through TextEdit, or any other place I can paste text, then copy it again to get text that will paste in Indesign as characters.

  11. Font Filter Scroll

    You guys are amazing. I can set my mouse over the font selection box, and without opening the drop down menu, I can scroll through fonts.

    The bug is that after setting my font filter, I continue to scroll through an unfiltered list of fonts, unless I open the drop down menu.

  12. Search for Paragraph return vs Forced Line, and selecting the line afterwards

    Paragraph return vs Forced Line, and how to select a line vs paragraph.

    Find and replace from within Illustrator has a popup to select Forced Line Breaks, ^n is the common notation in a find field. But does not have one for a more common Paragraph Return.

    You can copy the hidden paragraph return and search for this. The search field will show a blank space, not the standard ^p that is the common notation. So the search can work.

    Now, Since day one with Macintosh. Click ONCE for a point, Click Twice for a WORD, click Three times for…

  14. Kerning one pair effects the spacing of other random pairs.

    I'm having an issue when I go to kern a letter pair, the kerning effects the spacing between other pairs.

    I believe this similar bug was reported for CS5 but I am using CC 2018 22.0.1

    https://forums.adobe.com/message/4321697#4321697

    I have tried:

    • Clearing all Illustrator settings at startup.
    • Making sure text is not centered or justified
    • Using default font Myriad Pro with default settings.
    • Selecting all letters and zeroing out the kerning.
    • Turning off standard ligatures in Open Type

    Still this issue persists.

    Attached is an animated gif of the issue.

  15. Clicking to the side of a (point) text doens't put cursor at the end of line

    Illustrator CC 2018
    Mac OS X El Capitan and Windows 10

    This used to work on CS6 (at least on Mac): with type tool selected, having clicked anywhere in the middle of a text (point, not area), if I wanted to go to the end of the line (eg to continue typing), I could click anywhere to the right of the text and the cursor would move to the end of the line.

    Now, if I do that, it deselects the text (sometimes creates a new point text.

    If I want to continue typing, I have to click exactly just…

  16. can´t use kerning between two characters

    Hi,

    I can´t use the "kerning between two letters" in the characters palette when working on my Imac with Cintiq plugged in. This part of the characters palette is set to "Auto". The pop up with "metrical" and "optical" is not showing up. I can kern between two characters manually but would like to set a whole word two optical. The bug disappears when I am plugging of my Cintiq and working with the mouse on my Imac. Horrible. Fix this.

  17. Kerning Font Characters (Letters) Causes Curser to Jump Around

    While kerning letters in a statement, each time I press the up arrow to give more space or to press the down arrow to shrink space between letters, the curser jumps to the second line in some random spot. I have to move the curser back each time I press the up arrow and down arrow. This is defiantly a bug.

  20. Text and Objects Randomly Rotating

    When I move text or an object, I will always notice they get slightly rotated. It's hard for the eye to see it sometimes, but the guide lines will show that things get slightly rotated sometimes for no reason.
