  3. 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.

  4. transform panel units differerent than property panel transform

    Transform panel reads in inches as it should but in the properties panel the transform panel shows points. Latest version of Illustrator CC2018, Windows 7. Also if the values are unlinked to resize only 1 dimension both still change.

  5. Shape panel measurements vs. Transform panel measurements

    The measurements (width and height) on the Shape panel are inverted compared to the measurements on the Transform panel. The transform panel shows the correct measurements, but no the Space panel. Please fix so that both panels have the same measurement.

  6. Opacity in Properties Panel

    If there is a blending effect applied in the opacity settings the properties panel does not reflect the blending mode. You have to click on the appearance panel or opacity to see if one is applied. Took me a few minutes to trouble shoot why an element was not visible. It would be nice if buried settings would show up if selected in the properties panel since it was designed to make the interface more simple.

  7. Can't click on properties dropdowns

    I just updated AI to the newest release and suddenly I'm unable to access extended properties not displayed on the main panel nor will it let me select and change colors via the properties panel. I also don't like that you've all decided what tools I work with constantly, I need to be able to customize what I need to keep open for my workflow optimization. Because if I could, I could work around this bug.

  8. Zero height or width prevents using shape panel to adjust

    If you set a rectangle's height or width to zero in the Shape panel, you cannot change it back again to a non-zero value. The object remains a rectangle, so you can use the UI and a mouse to grab and expand the shape, after which the Shape panel works as expected. (I did not test what happens if you set both dimensions to zero, but this is an edge case in any event, since I discovered it only accidentally because some values in my data set are zero.)

  12. Wrong behaviour Text Area using resizing via Property panel

    Hi,

    When changing the size of a Text Area via mouse the text is repositioned within the available space.

    But I also regularly change sizes via the property panel in order to get the exact wanted values. But changing the size of the Text Area results in a deformed type (treated as a Point Type). There is now way to reset to the original undeformed font.

    The behaviour via the Properties panel should be the same as via the mouse!

  14. Can't input negative values in fields

    When trying to input a negative value (in leading, kerning, tracking, any transform, etc) or perform subtraction in an input field, the number either switches to a positive value or doesn't make a change and plays the system error sound. This is in the latest version of Illustrator on OS X 10.14.6

    When entering a value in the Width, with constrain proportions on, proportions are not constrained in Height. Height will then display some random height not associated with actual dimensions.

  16. Layer's not working - Bring Forward Not working

    I have tried various ways to get this graphic to show OVERTOP of the blue box. At first I tried just the "object arrange bring to front" and after that didn't work for some reason, I just used the layer panel. As you can see... even having the head on the top later OVER the bottom layer... it still will not show upfront.

  18. Snap to...

    Every time I open or create a new document the SNAP to PIXEL or SNAP to GRID is on... despite I turn it off. I just switched from mac to pc and have never had that issue. I believe its exclusively a pc issue in which there is nothing that remembers your last preference for various panel options outside of just this one. I would LOVE LOVE LOVE a solve cause its slowing me down. Thanks big time.

  19. constraint not working properly

    Im using adobe illustrator cc 24.1.2 on Windows 10 v 1903, The constraint function in the properties tab is not working properly for me. When i press the constraint button, the height and width proportion should stay the same when i change one number, but it changes them to be slightly off. If i make a circle 500 x 500, constrain the dimensions, and change the height to 250, it changes the width to 249.499. It doesnt matter what numbers i use, it will always change the other dimension to be slightly off what it should be

  20. Overprint doesn't work on text with 3D effect

    I have to use 3D effect (rotation) for some characters, but the overprint doesn't work when the effect is applied… I have to keep the text option more as possible without vecorizing…
