  2. Emoji rendering issues

    • Some emojis like 🎉or 😟show up as two undefined glyphs when pasted from the clipboard.
    • However, the 😟 will show up when inserted from the Glyphs palette.

    To replicate, simply copy/paste these emojis on a text using the Apple Color Emoji font.

  3. Type On Path bug with OpenType-SVG fonts

    • Apply a text to a curved path.
    • Apply a color font like Trajan to the curved text. This results in incorrect glyph rotation.
    • The rotation issue is no visible with CFF glyphs.

    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。

    ご報告いただいた内容を検証した結果、以下の現象を確認いたしました。

    • 環境設定の「プレビュー境界を使用」が有効の場合、特定の効果が適用されているポイントテキストオブジェクトを変形パネルの幅(高さ)サイズフィールドで縦横比固定でリサイズすると、文字が正しくリサイズされない。
    • 文字パネルのフォントサイズでリサイズする場合は、正しく演算される。
    • 環境設定の「プレビュー境界を使用」が無効の場合は、特に問題は発生しない。

    これは、以前のバージョンでも同じ現象が確認できました。

    修正などの開発の進捗がありましたら、こちらで報告いたします。

    よろしくお願いいたします。

  6. Area Type text stretching when transformed with another shape

    When I transform an Area Type text box using the handles, it resizes the Area and the type fits according to paragraph settings - which is what I want from Area Type - (first part of video).

    But if I transform at the same time as another shape, selecting both at the same time - the type resizes like point type, stretching and scaling with the box, which is not how area type should behave - (second part of video).

    So I can't transform an Area Type text box at the same time, for instance, as a holding shape that…

  7. Rotation of a text while Snap to Grid is on

    You can't rotate a text with the Rotate tool when Snap to grid is on.

    Please watch the GIF attached.

    Then try to replicate.

    Open the attached document.
    Enable Snap to Grid.
    Select text.
    Grab Rotate tool.
    Hold Shift (or even do not).
    Try to rotate the text.
    Failure?
    If yes, move it a bit to the side (with snapping still on) and try again.
    Experiment a bit with different positions.

  8. Illustrator not outlining type correctly

    I've only started to encounter this recently and it doesn't happen with all fonts. When I outline certain typefaces - such as your Source Sans - it outlines parts of some letters individually, such as the bar in the letter 'A' in the attached example, or does some bizarre detour as seen in both the comma and the apostrophe (the two most typical examples I could think of).

    All I am doing is outlining type with no stroke.

    I'm running Illustrator 24.3 and Catalina 10.15.6

  9. Font Preview Size

    In Illustrator 24.2.3,
    We are not able to change the Font Preview Size in the preference Dialogue in/under the Type Tab, and you also do not have the same feature in the Type Menu, which is the right place to set the Font Previews size default,
    we are also not able to see the Font names in the written text as a preview in the Font/Character Menu.

  10. Text on path gets selected when you marquee over empty space

    When I need to select something under the arc, like it’s shown in the GIF attached, I can use marquee and the the type object gets selected.
    Why?
    Did I click the path? No.
    Did I click the text? No.
    That’s just the 'Illustrator’s way'. Can you make an option to disable this nonsense?

  11. Character/Paragraph panels - lazy and/or incorrect updating

    Illustrator 23.0.3 on Win10

    It is vitally important to me that the Character and Paragraph panels tell me the truth at all times: an accurate description of the properties in play based on the selected text or the cursor position if nothing is selected.

    I constantly run into the problem where I select a line of text and the 'space before' and 'space after' controls in the Paragraph panel are completely wrong. Clicking the up/down arrows on the controls will change the displayed (wrong) value, and the text will suddenly leap to god-knows-where, rather than the desired "up or down…

  12. Paragraph style tab numeric measure is wrong

    v22.1/23/0.1
    Windows 10

    Both v22.1 and 23.0.1 show the wrong numeric 'X' measure when setting or adjusting a tab stop in a paragraph style. The measure shown is inflated both according to the ruler below the tab stop, and tabs set using the tab window. The numeric measure is inflated by an increasing amount the further the tab is from the left margin, and remains inflated whether units are set to mm or inches.
    eg. 20mm tab stop shows as 29.8mm in the paragraph style dialog

  14. Slow Type Performance

    I just recently updated to 22.1 running on Windows 10. I have a list of names that was copied from two columns (first name, last name) that was copied from an Excel spreadsheet. I'm trying to remove the tabs between the columns and replace them with spaces. Once I hit the backspace key it takes approximately 5 seconds to perform the backspace and another couple of seconds to add the space. This is a list of several hundred names so it is unmercifully crippling. Other operations outside of type are somewhat laggy but not nearly as bad. I cleared out…

  15. text block cursor not indicating actual cursor location

    TEXT BLOCK CURSOR NOT INDICATING ACTUAL CURSOR LOCATION
    This has happened a few times to me, but is not consistent.

    When editing text in a type block I use the pointer to hi light the area where changes are required but the changes occur at a different point in the text.
    I have attached an image to clarify this - the black editing block is hi lighting the additional space I intend to delete but the actual character deleted is a few characters away (in this case the letter 'f' which shows with a blue edit line in this image…

  16. hebrew punctuation

    hebrew punctuation problem.

    right now (finally, thank you) you can write in hebrew right-to-left.

    BUT the punctuation still comes out always in the wrong direction.

    I attach an example.

    Thank you in advance.

  17. Cannot undo paragraph or character style changes or deletions

    If I make any changes to paragraph of character styles, I cannot undo them, even if I delete a style. Changes are not registered at all as undo states. The only way to undo is to revert to a previous save.

  18. ÿ (ydieresis) Uppercase and lowercase are inverted

    Hello,
    the character ÿ (y with a dieresis) has an issue in Illustrator (I have the french version) when I change the case using the Font menu, it does the opposite. Turning Ÿ to Capital will change it to lowercase, turning Ÿ to lowercase won't change it (the .mov video is more clear)
    regards,
    –Nico

  19. 文字組みアキ量設定や禁則処理設定を含む文字列ペースト結果が不安定

    Windows 10/11の、Illustrator Ver.25.4および26.0.2で起きる不具合です。

    1. 文字組みアキ量設定、禁則処理設定を任意で作成する
    2. それらを適用した文字列を作成する(片方だけでも構わない)
    3. 該当文字列をコピーする
    4. 新規ファイルなどにペーストする

    この場合、文字組みアキ量設定や禁則処理設定はペーストしたファイルと文字列にそのまま反映されるはずですが、反映されず、ペースト先に用意されているプリセットの設定が反映される、または設定「なし」としてペーストされます。
    何度かペーストすると反映される場合がありますが、ペースト時の挙動が不安定としての不具合にナrいます。

  20. Optical kerning changes when opening AI file in Illustrator 2021

    Opened an AI file created April 2021 (using Optical kerning) to make changes. Kerning looks ok when I first open the file, but when I click on the text, the kerning changes significantly.
    The font used is Georgia. Mac OS 10.15.7. Illustrator 2021 25.3.1. I had to open the file in Illustrator 2020 and copy the kerning values between the letters. I then opened the file in Illustrator 2021, changed from Optical to Metric and entered the kerning values from the Illustrator 2020 file.
