  1. Resize tool fails to resize text above 1296 pt

    Resizing a text frame using Resize tool or scripting API fails to resize the text within that frame if the resulting text would be greater than 1296 pt. This bug affects both the manual Resize tool and the scripting APIs (both resize method and size property).

    To reproduce, create a text frame containing text at 129.6pt. Select it, then double-click the Resize tool and enter 1000%. This works correctly. Undo, then repeat for 1001%; this time the frame resizes but the text does not.

    Using the equivalent JSX, the following fails to resize the text:

    app.activeDocument.textFrames[0].resize(1001, 1001)
    

    Setting the text…

  2. Text disappearing when outlined

    When outlining text in Illustrator, some of the text is disappearing, as though under a clipping mask, The text outlines are present but the text is not visible.
    Turning the fill to overprint stops this happening, but I can't overprint white text....

    I have tried on a brand new file, so there are no formatting issues. The typeface is irrelevant it happens on all types .otf or .ttf...

  4. alt+gr typing pass through

    So, after spending an hour googling through different people having language / character issues with alt+gr on windows in Illustrator, I think I have identified what is happening (see screenshot)

    Win10 can do mixed display language / keyboard layout combinations that most Adobe products will handle just fine, but Illustrator seems to set keyboard language based on general language set, not on keyboard language set.

    So, if I type my normal alt gr+q for @ symbol or alt gr+e for € symbol on a german layout while using english language with german keyboard, it does not pass through as altgr+e…

  5. テキストにセットしたFOT-UD角ゴが正しく表示されない。(設定の狂った小塚ゴシックで表示される)

    テキストにセットしたFOT-UD角ゴフォントが正しく表示されない。
    ドキュメント内のすべてのFOT-UD角ゴに適用されるわけではなく、正常に表示される部分とされない部分が存在している。

    ドキュメントを開いた際に、FOT-UD角ゴではなく、UDKakugo LargePr6N-M-90ms-RKSJ-H*のアクティベートを求められることから、UD角ゴを指定した際に、フォントの英語名での指定にすり替わっているのではないかと考えられる。

    ディアクティベーション後にリアクティベーションしても治らない。
    ドキュメントをFOT-UD角ゴで作って保存後に閉じて開きなおすと、UD-kakugoがないとされて、表示が崩れる。
    その後、FOT-UD角ゴを指定しなおしても、小塚ゴシックで表示される。
    なので保存をするとUD角ゴを使っていた部分すべてが崩れる。
    修正をしても保存したら崩れる。
    Adobe Fonts側の問題なのか、illustrator側の問題かわからないので、ここに報告しておく。

    (フォントの内部的にUDkakukgoの情報が保持されていて、上書きができない?)

  7. type tool is fundamentally broken.

    Why did you f up the type tool?? It, like almost everything else in Illustrator, doesn't work as good as it did a few versions back. I don't mind you making changes, but when it starts to impede productivity, it's a problem. I hate this program now. HATE. It's a buggy, aggravating, and just does not work seamlessly as it once did.

    With the type tool, I have issues placing the cursor in the type. if I use the hand tool in conjunction with the type tool, it overrides the hand tool and starts adding spaces. Neve been a problem…

  8. Margin or Adjustment Markers for Type on Path not showing

    The margins or markers on the left and right side for adjusting the type showed up for a moment but then can't get them to reappear again. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling with no luck.

    I was able to get the margins to show by starting a new document but after a while they disappear or stop working. Can this bug be looked into please thank you.

  10. eyedropper leading 0.1

    I have noticed that, in the last few updates to Illustrator, if I copy the type attributes from one text box to another using the eyedropper tool that the leading amount does not get copied. Instead, it gets set to 0.1 -- which really negates the utility of coping type attributes through the eyedropper.

  11. Arabic Language Options Not Showing

    After activating Indic Script support and changing my text to be Middle Eastern & South Asian Every-Line (or Single Line), I still am missing options for my character and paragraph menus, such as text direction (RTL vs LTR) and adding kashidas automatically.

  14. 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

  15. When copying text in Arabic or Hebrew, Illustrator messes up the characters.

    Somehow the text gets flipped into Jibberish. Even when Arabic fonts are used such as Adobe Arabic. This causes the world to be filled with jibberish Hewbrew and Arabic.

  16. Just updated to Illustrator 24.3 and now installed font only has a few letters

    I updated to the latest version of Illustrator (24.3) and opened a document I had created in a previous version. Most of my text was missing. I checked and the font was still available and activated. I deactivated and reactivated and that didn't help. When I click the text, it gives me the message that "This text was created in a different version of Illustrator. Editing the text may cause some changes to your text layout. Basic formatting will not be affected. Do you want to continue?" The font is PeachyKeenJF. Only a few letters/numbers actually show up. I'm on…

  17. 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.

  18. Clicking "Add to Dictionary" on the right-click context menu for spell check does not update red underline...

    When adding a word to the spell-check dictionary using the right-click context menu, the underline remains under the word. Shouldn't that get removed after adding the word to the dictionary? It does not get removed from other instances of the word in the document either.

  20. Everytime creative cloud app is required to reactivate the fonts

    I activated 2 new fonts from adobe fonts website and it worked well.
    After that I closed Ai and next day when I opened Ai again then it's showing missing fonts and there is no way to activate them from Ai.
    I have to start creative cloud app always to reactivate these fonts. This is very annoying and killing a lot of time. Also it takes ages to start creative cloud app even on fast internet connection. This also needs improvement.
    Once the fonts are activated - isn't that installed locally on my machine? Why every time it needs to…
