  2. Maintain width and Height Proportions bug

    This has been a bug for at least a version or two: draw a shape, go to transform it in the Properties panel, and even though the "Maintain width and Height Properties" icon indicates "not constrained", adjusting one of the dimensions adjusts the other proportionally. This seems to happen only in a fresh file (perhaps fresh launch of Illustrator), and once I click and unclick the Constrain button once, it doesn't recur in that session.

    So in the screen grab above, I draw a box freehand, then in the Properties panel, begin adjusting the height with my arrow keys.…

  3. Transform Panel – Nudge using arrow keys problem

    In investigating my own question from in the user forum (https://forums.adobe.com/message/10238447#) I discovered that there is a disconnect between the Transform panel that is embedded in the properties panel and the Transform panel that you access via the Window dropdown.

    The free floating TRANSFORM panel you access from the Window dropdown works just like it always did... when I put my cursor in the X, Y, W or H and click an up or down arrow key it first rounds to the nearest .125" then increases or decreases .125" at a time (assuming the units are set to

  4. Drag to select Text in fields broken with update

    In the properties panel we are no longer able to drag to select the text in text fields. Very frustrating. This doesn't seem to be an issue in other text fields throughout the UI, mainly the properties panel.

  5. Can't highlight values in Properties panel

    When adjusting values in the Transform box, I can no longer highlight with my mouse. I need click on the field I'd like to edit with my mouse and then use my keyboard's shift and arrow keys to highlight, which I find quite tedious.

  6. No Properties panel available

    I have the 22.0.1 version of Illustrator and I haven't been able to find the Properties panel anywhere. My OS is Win 7.
    I got Illustrator just last week and there are no updates available for my installed version.

    I've looked for the panel in every workspace and checked the dropdown menu under "Window". There is no panel listed.
    I've reviewed all of the Preferences settings and cannot see anything connected to the workspace options.

    Please help, I really would like this panel.

  7. Properties panel bug

    When you edit word in properties panel and you want to change first few letters in word from normal to bold. It will show you change but when you deselect type tools it will change entire word to bold. But if you go trough type panel everything is fine.

    And if you change stroke size in properties panel to 0,5 pt it will apply 5 pt, for 0,25 pt 25 pt and for 0,75pt 75pt stroke.

  8. Rotation resets to 0

    If you rotate groups the properties panel always resets the rotation value back to 0 meaning I have to remember the value I used if I want to put it back or if I want other shapes to match the rotation at a later time.

  9. Properties panel causing inconsistent tab group behaviour

    The new Properties panel has a fixed width. When it's in a tab group with panels that don't have a fixed width (eg. the Layers panel), the tab group exhibits different behaviours depending on whether the tab group is docked or free-floating.

    When the tab group is free floating, switching between the tabs causes the panel to change width according to each tab's setting, which is what you would expect. Eg. Go to the Layers tab and make the panel very wide. Switch to the Properties tab and the panel auto-shrinks. Switch back to the Layers panel and the width…

  10. Can't Edit Text in a Group/Clipping Mask

    In 2018 AI CC, after using a group/clipping mask with text on the inside, you can not edit your text when you double click on the clipping group/mask directly. The Properties panel doesn't display the character settings. See my screenshot

    So, to get around this, I have to cut the text out, paste on the main layer, edit it and then cut/paste it back inside my group/clipping mask.
    Or, release the entire mask, make my edits then re-group/mask it afterwards. Or I have to open the separate character panel.

    As opposed to the way it should. The only way the…

  11. Windows panels number, cannot highlight to change

    When trying to select numbers from a window ex: 100% or 2500px, you cannot select a number to change one number.. you must change the whole number. This is a HUGE bug!

  12. Properties Panel and Transform Panel measurements should be exactly the same not rounded in the Properties Panel

    Properties Panel and Transform Panel measurements should be exactly the same not rounded in the Properties Panel.

    Properties Panel rounds measurements to .000 decimal places but the transform panel allows .0000 four decimal places. This is inconsistent and is confusing to my team trying to double check our files for accuracy.

  13. Inconsistent dot/comma stroke pulldown menus

    just noticed something strange in the pulldown menu of the new Properties panel. The values for thickness are marked with a dot for decimals, while all the other panels use a comma.

    In the picture you can see the pull down showing values with ".xx pt" while the stroke has a thickness of ",xx pt" (obtained through the Strokes panel)

    This causes the 0.5pt selection in the Properties menu to make strokes with a 5 pt thickness, and NOT 0.5 pt.
    (When I select the thickness through the regular Strokes panel it says 0,5 pt and ends up with 0,5…

  14. Properties panel contents scaling and freezing

    The contents of the Properties panel is scaling down to tiny sizes. It doesn't reset until you quit and reopen Illustrator (CC 2018).

    The scaling happens with ⌘+scroll while hovering on the panel. The contents will scale up or down as long as you are holding the ⌘, but if you let it go while the contents are scaled down the panel with freeze at that scale and won't respond to ⌘+scroll anymore. The panel's functions still seem to work fine after this.

  19. Properties panel showing wrong properties and text attributes all the time

    Properties panel don't reflect correct properties and font kerning and size were not reflecting in the the properties box. Changing a text box affects another text and not the selected text. An yes, I have the latest version and have replaced preferences many times.
