  1. Large Amounts of Text overrun text area, disregard justification

    I'm using Illustrator CC (2017).
    I am creating a 6'x4' poster, where a single text box holds the entire text of the Bible (~730,000 words) as a single string of text (regular spaces between words, but no paragraph returns) in Helvetica Neue Lt Std, 107 Extra Bold Condensed, 3 pt size with 2.7 pt leading, all caps, full justification, default hyphenation. I am using a text wrap around a compound object with a transparent fill to create a negative space in the midst of this text block (in my case, that compound object is text converted to a shape, so…

  2. Problem with Type on a Path after ver. 26.1 update

    Prior to updating Adobe Illustrator to ver. 26.1, a drawing with Type on a Path appears as it should. After the update, the text is positioned in a different place along the path. This is confirmed on a second computer. The same file opened on the second computer prior to the update appears normal, and after the update, the text is shifted.

    I am happy to share that we have fixed this bug in our latest release – 26.2.1 which is available worldwide now.

    Going forward, our goal is to fix as many top User-Voice bugs as possible and as frequently as possible. Given the nature of the fixes, some of the bugs will take a longer time to fix, but we are on it.

    You can update to the latest release using Creative Cloud desktop App: https://helpx.adobe.com/in/creative-cloud/help/creative-cloud-updates.html

    Thank you for all the feedback. Keep it coming!

  3. 行頭禁則文字に関わる和欧文間隔をカスタマイズ可能に!

    Illustratorの日本語組版で、たとえばプリセットの文字組アキ量設定「行末約物半角」を元に、和欧文間隔を「0%」にカスタマイズしても、そのカスタマイズの結果は、何故か「行頭禁則文字」に分類される文字種には効果がありません。
    ※添付ファイルをご参照くださいませ(macOS Catalina上のCC2021にて作成)。

    日本語組版の中では、デフォルトの「25%」アキを「12.5%」あるいは「0%」としたいという作業は少なからず発生しますが、上記のような挙動では、作業者の負担になるばかりです。

    可能であれば、「文字組アキ量設定和欧文間隔のカスタマイズが、行頭禁則文字にも効くように」改善することを希望します。
    挙動を変更していただければ、作業者の負担も軽減され、喜んで受け入れられるに違いありません。

    なお、このような挙動の変更は、「文字組みアキ量設定に頼らずなんらかの方法で和欧文間隔を変更した既存ファイル」にはあまり影響がないものと考えますが、変更していただくならば、【その変更を周知】していただくことは大切なことだと申し添えておきます。

    よろしくお願いします。

  4. Discretionary hyphens do not seem to work

    I can’t get discretionary hyphens to work in Illustrator CC 23.0.2, either by shift-command-- or with Type->Insert Special Character->Hyphens and Dashes->Discretionary Hyphen. Whether Hyphenate is turned on or off for the paragraph does not matter. Language does not seem to make a difference either.
    Only the hyphens added by Illustrator itself are obeyed.

  5. Glyph rendering bug with bitmap OT-SVG fonts

    Glyphs that consist of a single-colored bitmap image are not rendered in text frames nor in the Glyphs panel.

    When we start using them within a text frame, they also break the rendering of all subsequent characters (they disappear).

    To reproduce, enter the character "m" in the attached AI file.

  7. Selecting font for styled text

    While trying to change the font of a styled text box by scrolling throgh the font list, the list glitches and closes. Sometimes selecting a different font randomly and sometimes there font of the text box stays the same.
    Happening on multiple files with different-styled text. The issure does not seem to happen while working with regular-styled text.

    Please accept my sincere apology for the inconvenience. Please get in touch with us at any of the other support channels – https://helpx.adobe.com/support.html . 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.

  8. テキストフレームでグローバルスウォッチの変更が適用されない。

    OS/macOS10.13〜、Windows10 (20H2)
    ver/25.4.4、26.0.3

    エリアテキストオブジェクトのパスにグローバールスウォッチを適用し、そのオブジェクトを複製した場合、描画がグローバルスウォッチの編集に追随しなくなる。

    再現手順
    1.エリアテキストを作成しテキストパスのみを選択して塗りにグローバルスウォッチを適用した上Command(ctrl)+option(ALT)を押しながらドラッグし複製する。
    2.選択を外した状態にし、適用したグローバルスウォッチをダブルクリックし編集に入る。
    3.プレビューにチェックを入れた上でカラーを編集する。
    4.コントロールバーやカラーパネルでの表示は変化するがテキストパスの塗りは変化しない。OKをクリックし編集を終了する。
    5.スウォッチパネルなどの表示は正しく更新されるが1.のテキストバスの塗りは表示が変わらない。

    期待する結果
    グローバルスウォッチを適用したテキストエリアオブジェクトのパスでも他のオブジェクトと同様にグローバルスウォッチの変更に表示を追随させる。

    現状の挙動
    エリアテキストのパスに適用した塗りがグローバルスウォッチの変更に追随しない。

    対応策
    一旦アウトライン表示に切り替えてからプレビュー表示を行うとグローバルスウォッチの値にて再描画される。

    この挙動を細かく見てみると複製したエリアテキストのパスに対する処理に問題がありそうです。1点だけだと再現しません。また、オブジェクト的にはカラー値は更新されていますので単純に再描画が行われていないように思われます。
    以下のコミュニティスレッドをご確認下さい。

  9. 特定の条件でテキストの中窓部が斜線で塗りつぶされる

    再現方法
    サイズA4で新規アートボードを作成
    「要冷凍」というテキストオブジェクトをサイズ15ptで作成
    このテキストにアピアランス「パスのオフセット:0.05mm」を適用する
    アートボードの座標をX座標 100mm、Y座標 -148mmに変更
    「要冷凍」テキストの座標をX座標 197mm、Y座標 -2.1mmに変更
    文字の塗り潰しが添付画像のようになる(座標は全て左上起点)

    テキストをアウトライン化しても発生する
    どのようなフォントでも発生する
    同じような大きさの複合パスでも発生する
    線幅では発生しない

    以下の環境で確認
    MacOS 10.15.7
    Adobe Illustrator 26.0.1
    Adobe Illustrator 25.4.2
    Adobe Illustrator 24.3

    Windows10 Pro
    Adobe Illustrator 24.3(64bit)

    通常作成される、座標(X0,Y0)のアートボードで、版面左上端にテキストがかかっている場所で発生するようだ。普通こんな位置にテキストは置かないが、アートボードの座標がたまたまY軸方向にマイナス(上)X軸方向100mmの位置にあると、版面の真ん中で発生してしまう。文字というより複合パスで発生しているようである。

    対処方法
    アートボードの座標をリセットして、当該オブジェクトを適当な位置に移動して戻すと解消する。
    必要がなければ線幅で対応する。

    Illustrator 製品版フィードバックにご協力いただきありがとございます。

    ご報告いただきました問題につきまして、再現が確認できました。

    「パスのオフセット」効果が適用されている文字の中マド部分の直線と、「Y軸 = 0」のラインが重なる場合に発生するようです。
    簡単に「田」や「A」の字で再現できました。

    今後の開発進捗などはこちらでご報告させていただきます。

  12. Text will not change fill colour to what has been selected

    WIndows 10, Illustrator 23.0.3: After selecting text, I try to change the fill colour either using the eyedropper tool or the swatches panel. I expect the text to change to that colour. However, while the colour window shows the colour has been changed, the text doesn't actually change colour. I have to outline the text in order to get it to change colour.

    Hi Melina ,

    Thanks for reporting this issue, Illustrator team really appreciate this.
    As per attached screen shot , for the selected Text object your fill is below the Characters in appearance panel.
    Can you kindly move the Fill above the characters and change fill. This will hopefully resolve your problem.
    In order to identify the root cause , can you kindly provide us eyedropper setting snapshot ,you can find eyedropper settings by double click on eyedropper tool .

    Thanks
    Anish

  13. constrain with shift key not working

    I'm trying to move the bottom line of a text box.

    I select the box's line with open arrow, hold down the SHIFT key to constrain - and it automatically deselects the type box that I was trying to move. I can select the line with the open arrow and move it that way, but it's too easy to make an error and shift the box. I need the corners to remain perfectly square which is why I'm holding the shift key.

    I've had this problem with the last few upgrades.

    I'm an Adobe Illustrator user for more than 25…

  14. Font Size resets to 12pt when new font family is chosen

    Changing font face also changes font size.
    Steps to reproduce:
    1. Select text with text selector tool
    2. Select a new font face from the font face drop down menu

    Expected results: font face changes while all other font properties remain the same.
    Actual result: font face and font size properties change.

  15. Ultra-slow cycling through font names with arrows and focus in Font Family field

    When I try to cycle through font family list with focus set in Font Family field, it takes about 1-2 second for AI CC2018 to change both name and actual font for selected object (but it does it as ultra-fast when you drop down this field!) AI CC2017 does it a bit faster (0.5-1 second).

  17. Text cursor/text selection is invisible when inside group, and getting text cursor is jittery at best.

    The text cursor and text highlight selection don't appear when inside grouped text. Also getting the text cursor vs the selection cursor is very jittery. I'm running ai 25.0.1 on a 2017, 5K iMac, os Big Sur 11.1. I've attached videos of the poor functionality.

  18. Fonts are not refreshed when right sided metrics are changed

    This issue happens in the context of editing the metrics of a font file multiple times (in order to view new metrics changes in realtime).

    Fonts will not always be refreshed to the latest version when overwriting a font file in the Adobe Fonts folder with a new updated version:

    • When a right sidebearing of a glyph is changed and the font regenerated, the font is NOT updated in Illustrator.

    • Whereas editing a left side bearing and regenerating the font will show the updated font with all edited metrics (both the new left & right sidebearings).

    Issue happens in all…

  19. Missing fonts issue

    It's not reading Adobe fonts. It keeps saying to activate the font every time I open a document. The program hangs trying to activate a font, making the file not work properly "without" a font that was perviously activated.
