  2. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. Since the recent update, some fonts randomly deactivate in both Illustrator and Indesign. Also when typing a font name in the search box of

    Since the recent update (Dec2017), some fonts randomly deactivate approx every half an hour, in both Illustrator and Indesign. Also when typing a font name in the search area of the type window, the letters jumble around making it impossible to search and jump directly to the font I want - it's incredibly frustrating and time wasting.
    Can you please tell me how to fix this bug

  7. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. Font does not look good

    Your version of Adobe Illustrator: CC 22.0.0 (64-bit)

    Your expected result: I expected that fonts will preview correctly
    Your actual result: I've attached an image. First text is with a type, second is after I use create outlines.

    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.

    Rotating text that is within an "Envelope" shape distorts the text. It shouldn't.

  20. Type and Text Sizing

    Illustrator CC 2017

    I was adding a Type/Text box into my design when Adobe Illustrator stopped working and not responding. Then when I was able to get it back up I could place a Type/Text box in my design but the box was filled with lines and lines of unwanted text. I got that fixed but now the text comes up at barely 1/16th of an inch and I am unable to change the font size. I have done everything that everyone has suggested and I have also uninstalled the program and re-installed it and the problem is still occurring.…
