  1. 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…

  2. 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…

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  8. 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…

  10. 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…

  11. Properties panel shows "no selection" when object is selected

    I'm using Illustrator version 27.1.1 on windows 10 64 bit.
    When selecting and object, the Properties panel shows "no selection" and some crucial features (like the reflecting buttons) are missing.

    I'm attaching a screenshot, where you can see that there is an object selected, but it doesn't appear as such in the Properties panel.

  12. Keyboard input in Properties Panel, Character section failure

    Keyboard input in the Properties Panel will frequently stop working for me, and the only way to fix it is to restart the application. It's not a huge issue but it is quite irritating as I need to restart illustrator up to six times per hour to fix this.
    In detail: keyboard input for character related dimensions will stop working. I am still able to delete input, but cannot add input using the keyboard (the delete key is the only key being registered by Illustrator in the Properties Panel). For example, if my text is set to 35pt font, I…

  14. Properties panel is almost empty

    The panel presents a display error. Once any tool from the panel is selected, the information that should be on the panel does not appear or its visualization is distant from the other tools.

  15. Properties Panel Issues

    The properties panel is slow to respond.
    If nothing is selected and artboard info is showing, when I make a selection it takes forever for it to change from the artboard info to showing the selection info/options for transform, appearance, align, etc.
    Sometimes I have to click on a different panel tab (to make the property panel go behind) and click back on properties for all of that to appear again.
    It's such a waste of time doing all the extra clicking or waiting ... or both.

    Also, when I have an object or group sitting ON the artboard (the…

  17. "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 :(
