I wanted to have all the brushes that come packed with Illustrator available to me at all times. I loaded the ones I wanted, selected and added the brushes. Once I did this the drop down menu crashes and will not come back, the top is lost and does not scroll up. This has effected all my documents until I closed down Illustrator. When I did this again it was fine.... any ideas?1 vote
Once you load all the brushes that you need in brushes panel, Save it as library from the flyout and you can open this library everytime you want to use it.
You can mark the library persistent, so that it opens on restarting the application.
Hope this helps. If you still need help write to firstname.lastname@example.org with mention of this.
Ai CC 2017, 2018; I was trying to create a circle with clean basic stroke style instead it keeps appearing as a charcoal feather stroke. I was working on Surface pro 4 while converting an image to vector. This doesn't happen on Pc or Mac.1 vote

The top layer has an additional BLACK stroke applied that’s why the WHITE stroke on the artwork is not displayed. Please select Layer 1 from Layers panel and then from Appearance panel remove the Stroke.
Hope it helps.
Thanks & Regards,

I'm already feeling a lot of regret for updating to CC 2018!
Now anytime I want to change a font, and I start typing in the name, no suggestions come up. Sometimes, the cursor jumps backwards and start inserting characters midway. I feel frustrated and fed up.1 vote
Looks like your setting is set to “Search First work only”. Click on the search icon and from the drop down select “Search Entire Font Name”
"Preview in Browser" option in save for web window is resets to Safari everyday(After restart). Several times I tried selecting Google Chrome and set as default in browser menu, but chrome is getting removed from the browser menu automatically after I restart the Illustrator.1 vote
Please contact Apple support. macOS controls the default browser setting. You can validate the default browser by double clicking any html file on your system.
unable to turn off this new touch type button in the character panel1 vote
Sorry to hear that you are facing this issue. If you want to turn it off, you need to switch to some other tool. Or you can remove it from panel by the flyout menu.

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.
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.

The Type Tool is in the Pen Tool Group! Has to be a glitch!0 votes
Marking it as resolved, since the tools can be grouped in toolbar as per your wish.
