  2. Clipping masks release

    When I reopen a document with clipping masks the masks are released. It is very frustrating remaking all photos each time I open to make edits.

  4. A clip group containing a compound path that borders an artboard often gets stuck as selected

    A clip group containing a compound path that borders an artboard often gets stuck as selected. Scaling the clip group (then undoing) causes the group to become unstuck as selected.

  6. Stroked Clipping Masks get unclipped on file reopening

    Using a clipping mask on photos works, but when I save the file, close it and reopen it, the photos are no longer clipped, but they're grouped with the mask/path instead. I then have to ungroup and reclip them every time I open it. It's happened several times. I should also note that I'm using a stroke color on the path/masks. There's one photo that isn't following the same behavior and it's working properly, but there's no discernible difference between it and the rest of the photos I'm using, whether it be size, mode or whatever.

  7. Intertwine overlap quick select breaks after a limit

    The new feature worked great when i had 6 paths with 36 overlaps, but I pushed it and I got this when trying to intertwine these 7 paths with i think 116 overlaps.

  8. Selecting all objects on layer via Layers panel not recognized by Intertwine

    AI 27.5
    Go to Layers panel
    Click target button for Objects layer (to select all paths on that layer)
    Choose Object > Intertwine... note that Make is gray
    Instead, in Layers panel click to select first object and Shift + click to select last object. Object > Intertwine > Make is available

  10. When exporting an intertwined object to PDF the selection trace is preserved in the saved file

    Mac OS Ventura 13.0.1 (22A400)
    Illustrator 27.0.1

    The reproduction scenario is as following:
    1. Create two overlaying rings (I used pathfinder to make the hole in the middle).
    2. Select both objects
    3. Go to Object-Intertwine-Make and select the target area
    4. Save in PDF

    Even if the Flatten transparency was selected (as suggested in https://illustrator.uservoice.com/forums/601447-illustrator-desktop-bugs/suggestions/45826375-intertwine-bug-when-export-as-pdf-x4 ), the tiny selection trace in the intertwined area can be viewed (see the attached file)

    This issue is fixed in the Prerelease version (available in Creative Cloud Desktop Prerelease section).

    Intertwine objects now get treated differently when expanded, and an extra copy get placed underneath the stack of clipped zones to eliminate seams PDF viewers display.

  11. Measurement of a clipping path object bug on PC (Illustrator 26.0.1)

    I have a logo which uses a mesh gradient inside a clipping path. On my Mac the X and Y measurements relate to the object, ignoring the elements that are outside of the clipping path. When I share this with a colleague who is using the same version of Illustrator on a PC the measurements are different and relate to all the elements in the object and not just the clipping path? Any ideas?
