  1. Extended properties panel inconsistent with InDesign

    Not so much a bug, perhaps a feature request but yet more evidence of the various dev teams going off in their own directions - like the Photoshop's inexplicable rationale for switch the default behaviour of proportional scaling ... ahem, I digress.

    Please would you consider implementing the properties panel behaviour from InDesign? By this I am specifically referring to the extension of the properties panel behaviour when selecting the 'more options/fewer options' ellipses.

    The InDesign implementation expands the existing sub-panel to include the additional options which are not normally visible.

    The Illustrator implementation is less elegant by simply repeating…

  2. workspace options not available

    I can't figure this out. Clearly someone else has had this issue, but there is no published solution. From your archive:

    "Workspaces not working, all panels hidden on start up.
    Just update to CC23.0.1 and when I start up Illustrator all the panels are turned off and my workspace won't change or reset.

    I can turn on the panels manually, but it resets when I close Illustrator. The reset, new workspace and manage workspaces options are greyed out. If I try to change the workspace nothing happens.

  3. Cannot update links from links panel

    Cannot update links by clicking "update" icon in links panel or by going to panel menu > Update Links. They do nothing. I have to wait until AI shows the "Some links need updating..." alert and then confirm to update or I have to close/open the file.

    What the heck happened in the latest update(s)? Feels like all of the panels are super busted.

  4. Illustrator CC 2019 v23.0 Divide tool not working

    I'm running on a iMac Pro (2017) Mojave OS 10.14 and using Illustrator CC 2019 v23.0. I've tried using the divide tool via the Pathfinder panel as well as the new Properties Panel and neither will work. Typically it would divide the two patterns top and bottom and now it just leaves the patterns as is without dividing. I also have used the guides to divide a pattern and that is not working either.

  7. Properties Panel Transform section uniform scaling UI bug [ Ai CC 2018 ]

    Hi,

    The Ai I'm running has this strange bug where upon making a new document the Transform section under the Properties Panel will have the 'Maintain W & H' lock activated; however the icon does not indicate as such. It will show the function as in active.

    So every time I were to scale an item with no intention of keeping it's initial proportions, the function will scale it proportionately.

    Another thing I've noticed is that if I enter a new value for either W or H then it will take that new value and add it to the initial…

  9. Replace Symbol widget missing from new Properties Panel - Needs Consistent Behavior

    Maybe I'm missing something, but if I have a symbol sitting on an artboard, the Properties Panel will have the "Replace Symbol" drop-down widget so that I can easily change it.

    However - if that same symbol is grouped, or displayed under a clipping mask - direct-selecting it (Control + Click) - this option will be missing from the Properties panel.

    CC 2017 did not behave this way - and the toolbar at the top of the window would always show this option when a symbol was selected. For users who utilize a lot of symbols within working files, or…

  12. "Neu Färben" erscheint nicht in dem "Eigenschaften Menu"

    Windows 10

    Man nimmt ein Objekt und schneidet aus diesem Objekt ein anderes Objekt. Wenn dieser Ergebnis ausgewählt wird erscheint "Neu Färben nicht". Aber wenn ich ein einfaches Objekt nehme(Kreis, Dreieck, Rechteck). Dann erscheint "Neu Färben" in den Eigenschaften Menü. Ich denke "Neu Färben" muss immer erscheinen und es ist egal welche Objekte ausgewählt werden.

    Sie haben viele Werkzeugen, aber die alle halbwegs funktionieren. Und darüber ärgere mich immer wieder :(

  16. Command enter in properties panel does not work

    In the Transform panel entering only a width or a height then pressing Command Enter (on a Macintosh) will enter the new value (either width or height) and scale the selection proportionally. For example, take an object that is 1 cm wide and 3 cm tall. Type 2 cm in the width field, press Command Enter, and you will find the object scaled to 2 cm wide and 6 cm tall.

    Do this in the Properties panel and nothing happens. Command Enter is ignored and the new measurement is not applied (because you didn’t press Enter as far as the…

  19. Justification, distance inter-mots

    macOS 10.14.6. Illustrator 25.1

    Quand une ligne de texte ne comporte que des chiffres (ex : numéro de téléphone), la distance inter-mot est toujours à 100% et ne reflète pas les réglages d'espacement du panneau paragraphe/justification.
    Il suffit d'ajouter une lettre en début ou en fin de ligne pour que le réglage soit pris en compte.

  20. Angle Rotation Field not accepting numeric input

    Details of your operating system and version of Adobe Illustrator (desktop):
    Mac OS Catalina 10.15.7. Adobe Illustrator 2020

    The steps you were taking when you experienced the issues:
    Suddenly after many times typing in numeric values into the angle field of the properties panel, it won't read it. I can still type numbers into other fields. Its not a keyboard issue etc. .
    I have to restart Illustrator to fix the issue, and then it happens again after a while
