  1. the font style file has not been installed

    Just recently purchased CC 2018. Although I have been using Illustrator since 1998, this is the first time I have worked with CC. And I'm having issues with the Type in Illustrator - it seems the font style file has not been installed [???] - for example with the Font Myriad Pro - there should be an option of regular, regular italic, bold, bold italic, etc - I can only get regular.

    This issue HAS to be resolved or there is no point in continuing to use CC 2018. Please let me know what I need to do - does…

  3. Major Type issues

    Having major dramas with type. I cannot select any existing type in any file. I cannot add any type either. On the rare occasion that any cursor may appear, it is so tiny as to be impossible to see anything. On typing, no text appears at all.
    Extremely weird and extremely frustrating.

  4. Cannot use alt with eyedropper to apply sampled style to other sections of text

    Cannot use alt with eyedropper to apply sampled appearance to other objects
    Mac OS High Serra 10.13.3
    Illustrator CC 2018 (22.1)

    I used to (in CS6) be able to copy a text style by using the eyedropper once and then holding alt to apply it to other sections (the eyedropper icon would be mirrored left-right when holding alt).

    Now if I hold alt, I'm getting the hand (pan) tool.

    How can I get the "apply style" tool instead please?

    NB: it still works with objects (background of text area in the example video), but not with text anymore.

  7. Bengali Dari Line Break Issue

    The Indic 'dari' (U+0964, "।") reflows to the next line in Bengali, but it should behave like a period and not be allowed to start a line, especially if not preceded by a space. I am using v22.0.1 x64 on Windows 10. I have attached a file to show what I mean.

  8. Glyph

    Weird Glyph problem going on. Basically we have registered "R"s on our artworks, and on some occasions the glyph is applying superscript to the superscript "R" making it half the size it should be. Font is Gotham Medium using CC 2018 macOS High Sierra, Suitcase Fusion. Even weird that its changing when I scoll around the artwork to the smaller "R"? any ideas as I'm lost. This was happening also in CC 2017

  9. All Typekit fonts unavailable

    All of a sudden Typekit stopped working through Illustrator/Photoshop. I cannot open the CC app on my desktop either. I cannot uninstall it nor reinstall it as none of these functions will work. I am effectively frozen out of my desktop CC app and typekit. When I access Typekit via the webpage it shows my snyced fonts but I cannot access them on my desktop (PC). I am unable to complete my work. I have been troubleshooting this since Monday and would like to talk one on one with someone who can talk me through what to do. I am…

  11. Variable font remains static

    I've been working on various variable fonts, which, while there are sometimes are some GPU rendering issues in Illustrator, work as expected.

    However, my last creation remains static while changing the variable (see example). The font variation works perfectly in online environments, it's only in Adobe apps that this seems to be an issue.

    Using version 22.1

  12. Gradient stroke & fill can no longer be seen when applied to editable type

    No so much of as an idea as a rendering bug, the idea would be to fix it.
    Gradient stroke & fill can no longer be seen when applied to editable type.
    Versions CC2018 will not render the Gradient stroke & fill, just renders as black.

  13. CC2018

    1. Illustrator CC2018
    2. Editing existing type.
    3. The ability to actually see what I'm typing.
    4. Almost always there is no text refresh when editing text. You have to drag the text or otherwise alter it so that Illustrator is forced to refresh so you can see changes you make.

    I'm using a new iMac Pro High Sierra. Please fix the bug!

  14. Restart every 1 min to fix a bug – Illustrator Font Panel Bug

    Adobe Illustrator always show the default font Myriad Pro no matter which typeface/font you are using. Also Fonts and weights that you are using disappear from the dropdown of the font.

    The only way of fixing it is to restart illustrator every 1 min.

  17. 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…
