  1. Guides not scaling correctly on copy/paste into large canvas

    If I copy a 5"x5" rectangle from a regular document and paste it to a large canvas document, it remains 5"x5", as expected.

    However, if I convert the same shape to a guide and then copy it from a regular document to a large canvas document, the guide becomes 50"x50". This really makes things difficult when copying guides and artwork together into a large canvas.

  2. Shifting decimal

    Not sure really where this lies. And it doesn't seem to have any other affect that I am aware of, but this just started with the latest upgrade - 24.3.

    I typically select an outlined piece of text and copy it then create a new document that is a couple of inched bigger and paste it in. I do this when I am creating production files for large-format kiss cut vinyl production.

    What I have been doing is selecting the text then referring to the dimensions when I create the new file for output. However, today I noticed that when…

  3. Align/Distribute issue (v.24.2.3)

    Hello,
    I've seen that this is claimed that it is fixed on a previous update, but I have the latest (24..2.3) and still have issues.

    Situation:
    4 text layers in a 2nd level subgroup
    Selection of three out of four layers and the Align/Distribute is working as expected (align to Selection selected)
    Selection of all four layers (or group layer) and the Tool isn't working on 'Align to Selection' basis. It's working correctly as 'Align to Artboard'

    How am I supposed to align all layers in a Group? The only workaround is to align all layers but one and then…

  4. Blank pop-up window appears after opening an .ai file

    Currently running:
    macOS Catalina v. 10.15.6
    iMac 27"
    3.2 GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i5
    32 GB 1600 MHz DDR3 Memory
    NVIDIA GeForce GT 755M 1GB Graphics card

    Everytime I open an .ai file a blank dialog box appears with nothing on it except for the close/minimize buttons on the top left. I'm able to close the box out and view my work but this happens every time I open a file. Also attached a screen shot as well as spindump of Adobe Illustrator.

  5. Freezing when selecting multiple artboards

    Windows 10 Ver.2004 (build 19041.421)
    Illustrator Ver 24.2.1

    1. Make multiple artboards
    2. Select two artboards

    This operation freezes the operation of Illustrator.

    This problem does not occur in Ver.23.1 and 22.1.

  6. Smart Guides buggy at artboard corners

    When resizing snapping shapes or objects, Illustrator smart guides alert user that object is being snapped to corner or intersect, however it isn't actually, and it's not until you zoom right in that you realise it hasn't.

    Snap to Pixel is turned off. Smart Guides are turned on.
    There is no 'anchor' at that location other than the Artboard Edge.

  7. Guides and Alignment

    While guides have been placed in artboard objects will no longer align to artboard rather they extend far beyond the current artboard.

    At the moment the only solution I've found to work is clearing the guides.

    Thanks!

  11. Can't create artboard from rectangle - Illustrator 24.2

    That's all. It says that it can't create artoboards from rotated rectangles or masks. It's a freshly created rectangle.

    This version of AI seems to be very buggy.

  12. Artboard Missing

    When I open the saved file, I find my artboards missing. The weird part is it saves my work. So every time I open the file I have to create new artboards for the layout I had done.
    Attached Adobe Files consists of 2 layouts:
    Page 1: Original Layout
    Page 2: When I re-open the file. I find all the artboards missing except for a default artboard.

    Very frustrating to recreate the artboards every time.

    Thanks
    Regards

    Mahesh Sutar

  13. Values of artboard differes from the values on control panel in artboard mode

    1. Create big artboard 5 meter in Normal Mode
    2. Activate Increase Cavas Mode
    3. Activate artboard mode
    4. Enlarge artboard up to maximal size 57 meter with dragging handels
    5. The values in control panel are in METERS while in properties panel they are in INCH

    Expected result: The must be in the same measuraments value. In METRS as I have choose METERS

    It happens when I create artbord after first run.

  14. OS10.13.6 — Illustrator 24.1.2: Paste does NOT remember layers. Oddly, the same thing happened with another upgrade about 1-2 years ago.

  15. Snap to grid doesn't work in new documents

    Snap to grid doesn't work at all in new documents. It works with no issues whatsoever in old files, but whenever I create a new one, nothing snaps to grid. I tried restarting, didn't work, and the software is up to date. Any help would be appreciated.

  16. artboard/canvas will not center; confined to top left corner

    Artboard snapping to top left corner of window- zoomed at 67%;
    snapped to right of window at 100%

    Following your post instructions ....

    1. On Windows 10 latest; Adobe Illustrator latest (on cloud) -
    2. Believe I was scrolling the canvas - may have zoomed out
    3. Expect canvas to reduce and stay centered
    4. Canvas snapped to top left and when I zoomed back to 100 % it snapped initially to top right

    Please fix (it has happened a few times) - thank you

  17. Rulers disappear at restart.

    Even If I have checked "Show/Hide Rulers Across All Documents" every time I restart Illustrator, I have to activate rulers AGAIN. Come on guys, you always need a wheel to drive a car, we always need rulers ON. Help us with this bug.

  19. Fit to artboard

    Fit to artboard does not fit lines to the artboard that are on the edges. So when you export to indesign the lines are missing of halved

  20. Artboards

    My default document I use to begin projects has two artboards. If I add a third artboard, it will be named "Artboard 2" and I have to go into the settings and rename it "Artboard 3" in order to print properly.
