  2. Layer visibility incorrect after applying 3D Effect Rotate to group

    After applying the 3D Effect 'Rotate' to a group of paths, it is no longer possible to make paths invisible within the group.

    Steps to reproduce:
    1) New
    2) Draw two paths
    3) Select and group the paths
    4) Apply 3D effect 'Rotate' to the group
    5) toggle the visibility of one shape in the 'Layers'-panel

    The shape stays visible even though the visibility is turned of.
    I added a capture of the steps but not all dialogs in the capture are visible.

  4. Border not shown while moving object (v 25.x)

    Yes, as the title says, border not shown anymore while moving objects. This happens since we updated to v 25.x (current version: 25.2.1).

    If this should be a feature, this is just bad. Please give us at least an option to activate/deactivate this behavior. If you have to move objects over a background with the same color, you just can see nothing!

    We go back to version 24.x now, because its not possible to work properly with 25.x. Hope you will change this soon. Thank you.

  8. 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.

    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.

  10. dots (.) on units

    when typing units, in any case (like sizing a square, or the width of a line), we were able to use the dot (.) for decimals, now it only reads the commas (,). So if i create a square (or any other object) and type on size something as: 3.5mm, it reads it as 35mm, if i want a 3.5mm square, i need to type 3,5mm (with a comma).

    it is more practical to accept the dot, since it is right there at the numpad on the keyboard.

    can we go back to that?

    Please accept my sincere apology for the inconvenience. Please get in touch with us at any of the other support channels – https://helpx.adobe.com/support.html . Since this is not a generic issue that we can reproduce at our end, we will need someone to look into your machine to figure out what is going on here.

  15. Gradient panel - Angle tab flashing and temporarily freezing program

    This is a new problem today - I have restarted Adobe and my mac and no fix.

    Summary -

    I have my panels displayed on my UI - The gradient angle tab (even when no gradient is applied) begins to flash repeatedly and quickly - This causes the program to freeze for the second it is flashing.

    Further, once it has completed flashing it changes my tool randomly - I have had it change from move to artboard, from shape to pen, it seems random. Also the I have tried a different keyboard so it is not a bug in…

  16. Shapes won't change to colours saved to Libraries

    I have multiple colour palettes saved in my Libraries which I will use through Illustrator/Photoshop/Indesign. Frustratingly, as I am in the middle of working on a design using basic shapes (rectangles, ellipses etc) and go to change the colour of that shape by clicking on a shade within my libraries it will not change! The shape will change colour when using colours from the swatches palette always. I end up having to quit Illustrator and restart it then colours from my library will work again.

  17. Object drawing error

    When I click and drag to draw an object such as a rectangle or ellipse I get a wild error where Illustrator tries to draw all of the intermediary steps in between. I gives me an unknown error, and if you look in the layers palette you can see that it is actually drawing lots of objects rather than the one I'm intending to draw. I have attached a gif of what is happening.

    I've been having issues attaching files to this post. Here is a link to a gif of the issue. https://imgur.com/a/gd7ae

  18. Illustrator crashes when editing a graph column design

    Illustrator crashes when editing a column design with the graph tool. Editing a text box that is linked to the data causes an error "Can't edit type." and types a character. Then I try editing the text again causes the previous character to be typed, the current one and the error. Sometimes illustrator crashes when the type turns to a black fill. Also, editing the column design makes the graph transform vertically and horizontally. Attached is an example.
