  1. Freeform Gradient doesn't transform correctly High Sierra (macOS 10.13)

    Freeform Gradient points should transform relative to path. Gradient does not transform as expected.

  6. Image File open but not showing up

  7. Object horizontal and vertical measurements are swapped in tool bar

    MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2018)
    Processor: 2.6 GHz 6-Core Intel Core i7
    Mac OS Monterey 12.0.1 (21A559)
    Adobe Illustrator 26.0.2

    When selecting an object, like a rectangle, the horizontal and vertical measurements in the tool bar are swapped. They appear correctly in the Transform window.

    For example, a horizontal rectangle could be 7pt x 5pt, but when selected in the tool bar it shows 5 in the <--> dialog box and 7 in the vertical box.

    I have restarted my computer and restarted illustrator.
    See screen caps below.

    As per the comment:

    Illustrator allows to access dimensions of an object as well as dimensions of a live shape. In case when a shape is rotated by 90° the shape’s size values can look swapped compared to measured sizes. It’s like tilting a head. See attached images inside for clarifications.

  8. CMYK Files Colors are Displaying as RGB in Illustrator 2022 Version 26.0.1

    (Illustrator 2022) Open a new CMYK file, create a box, color Breakdown "87-75-0-0 "select the same CMYK color Breakdown "87-75-0-0 " (In Color Picker) that is clearly showing a darker color then what is behind the open select box.

    Screen Shot 2
    Open a new CMYK file in Illustrator (2021). Same process as above, now CMYK colors appear correct.

  9. Guides

    The update made my guides disappear unless I click on the objet or art-board. It would be ok, but when I use the arrows to move the guides they disappear and I can't see how far I have moved them. May I change this update back to how it was.

  10. Pen Tool: Close path Changes Handles

    Mac Mojave 10.14.6
    Illustrator 25.4.1

    When drawing with the pen tool, closing paths changes the initial path/handles drawn. This occurs every time the initial point plotted is a "click and drag."

    I tried to upload a screen recording (.mov) but it won't let me.

  11. Communicating with Adobe

    Hi Adobe people,

    I have a question about the communication with users. Under what circumstances does it make sense at all to post a comment/bug/idea/etc. in this place. Do users get heard? Is there a limit of votes above which ideas are actually implemented? How are decisions about what is fixed and what not made?

    I am asking because I have so many points collected over the years that I am planning to post. But this is kind of a lot of work on the side of regular work day that I want to make sure it is worth the…

  13. Live Paint Dead

    Wow, I haven't seen AI get this slow and bad at basic vector work in years! (Just might be way too bloated.) Had to delete latest version 25.1 and go backwards just to get my day job done on time.

  14. Eyedrop multiple fills

    Please allow there to be an option on the eyedropper tool to select multiple fills on appearances to apply to another object. Example; with pattern design, we create a top transparent pattern than a second fill with a solid color to create the final pattern. We would like to be able to easily apply those two fills to another object

  15. Alignement of neighboring objects

    Hi, when I used to move my objects on artboard, there used to be lanes and alignments automatically showing me when two objects on the artboard are in alignment with a green line. However, I can't see that feature anymore, it just happened since yesterday. very frustrating. Is this a bug, or is this due to some settings issue?

  16. Cannot open Illustrator after updating to version 24.1.2. Windows 7 reports an error "missing VCRUNTIME140_1.dll". (The 24.1.1 is ok)

    Cannot open Illustrator after updating to version 24.1.2.

    Windows 7 reports an error "missing VCRUNTIME140_1.dll".

    (The older version 24.1.1 works fine after downlaoding.)

  17. Welcome screen doesn't show

    Hello,
    I'm using windows 10 and Illustrator 24.0.2.

    Whenever I'm launching Illustrator, without opening a .ai file, my welcome screen doesn't show at all. I can start a new project fine but I still need my screen to show. And yes the setting to show the welcome screen is checked.

  18. Effect 3D Rotate perspective error

    With Effects/3D Rotate, Illustrator can't render a placed image using a high perspective value. The image is all distorted. See screenshots:

    Hi,

    Thanks for reporting this issue, Illustrator Team really appreciate this.

    To adjust the perspective, enter a value between 0 and 160 in the Perspective text box. A smaller angle is similar to a telephoto camera lens; a larger lens angle is similar to a wide-angle camera lens. A lens angle that is higher than 150 may result in objects extending beyond your point of view and appearing distorted

    Thanks and Regards

  19. Using the newest version of Illustrator won't let me use new files for older illustrator versions (ex: illustrator at school)

    Opening Illustrator files created last night on the newer version on my home computer won't load at school on an older version of Illustrator. The files are completely missing artwork. You can see all the components on the recently opened page, but when you open the file. The artwork doesn't load.

    Hi Deborah,
    We have bumped up the file format in AI 2020 so any file created in AI 2020 is not compatible in older versions. Please do a save as Illustrator CC version before sharing the file.
    The older release should also be warning users that the file was created in a new version and will have some data loss.

    Best regards,
    Ashutosh

  20. Some of AI file paths disappear when exporting to PNG or JPG

    A simple AI file containing the logo and text (all outlined) is saved fine as AI or PDF, but if I try to export it to PNG or JPG, some of the paths contained within the image disappear and are not rendered in the resulting raster file. I am attaching the master AI file, and the rendered PNG file (created by going to File > Export As > PNG). As you will see, the rendered PNG file is missing the ALFRA name within the square white shape. FYI, I sent the file over to a friend of mine and he…
