Adding assets to Asset Export
Illustrator 2018 is not letting me create a single asset from ungrouped layers. In the previews version the functionality was simple, you just select as many ungrouped layers and it would create a single asset.
Is this is a new fancy bug?1 vote
You can create single asset from un-groupped layers by holding Opt/Alt key while adding the asset.
This is intended change in behaviour in Illustrator 2018, creating multiple assets in a single add operation was not possible earlier.
New document dialog doesn't provide default values
When in Illustrator, I typically use ctrl-n, then hit enter to automatically open a new document.
However, the new document dialog as of Illustrator 2017.1.0 doesn't have default values filled when the dialog opens, and one is forced to pick the type of document one wants to create, from web, mobile, print, etc. instead of just hitting the "enter" key and changing these settings later.
In other words, you are complicating the flow of creating new documents.1 vote
Please accept my sincere apology for the inconvenience. New document dialog in new version shows the last used profile as default selection.

Small Caps no longer working as it should
Illustrator 2017.1.0. Setting the Small Cap percentage no longer works for some fonts. They seem to have their own default setting that is unaffected by changing the percentage in the Document Setup window. In the attached example, Small Caps is set to 90%. In the first two font examples, you can see it's nowhere near that. If I change the setting, the bottom word will change but the top two remain the same. This is terrible!!1 vote
Illustrator uses real Small Capitals when a font has specialized glyphs for that, just like these two top fonts used in the test file.
When a font does not have true small caps, they get faked using the value from Document Setup.
Pattern Swatches Shift when Copied & Pasted
Copying and pasting a pattern filled object or text, especially when pasting into a new document, should not shift the pattern. This causes many issues when passing files to others.0 votes
Generally this behavior is controlled by the option, Preferences > General > Transform Pattern Tiles.
However the positioning of a pattern inside of an object is controlled by the origin point of a specific document, the 0,0 position on rulers, which may differ in different documents. Ai recalculates local coordinates on paste, preserving the look of the pattern, but if you change the origin later, the pattern will shift.
Please comment back if toggling this option does not work for you.

Marking it as resolved, since the tools can be grouped in toolbar as per your wish.
