  3. View Using GPU Gets Greyed Out Permanently with Outline Mode

    Hello, with fresh preferences, 'View using GPU' and scrubby zoom are enabled in Illustrator. if I turn on Outline Mode, Illustrator loses connection with my GPU. The 'View using GPU' option becomes greyed out and never restores. In order to get it back I have to delete my preferences. Here is my system info:

    Illustrator 25.1
    OS: Windows 10
    GPU: 2 x NVIDIA Titan Black
    RAM: 64 GB Memory
    GPU Driver: Driver 460.89
    Display: ASUS PQ321Q 4K

    Hi,

    After having investigated the issue with some users , we have been able to find a reproducible scenario for this issue which is due to using a specific color profile which is Generic-CMYK.

    Our team is working on fixing this issue on priority.Until the issue is fixed please follow the below steps as a workaround :

    1. Go to Edit → Color Settings
    2. Under Settings set the default color profile → North America General Purpose 2
    3.Press OK

    Then try creating new document.

    Incase with the above workaround still the issue is observed at your end, please let us know in the comments .

    With Best Regards,
    Aishwarya G Gadodia

  4. Extra pixel added to image size when exported

    When I use "Export for Screens" export option to batch-export artboards many of the resulting JPGs are a pixel larger vertically and/or horizontally that the artboard dimensions within Illustrator. For example I exported a dozen images with artboard sizes of 1200px wide and 1200px high. After exporting the resulting JPGs have a dimension of 1201px wide and/or high. This only happens on some of the exported files and only some of those are effected vertically and horizontally.

    This issue is probably happening because the artboard dimensions are not appropriate for raster export (i.e. are in decimals).
    If you make x and y values as the whole numbers in the transform panel (not in decimal), then the extra pixels will not be added to the exported image.

    That is the workaround, and it’s reported that it’s not always the case.

    At the same time — Ai knows the size of artboards to be exported and yet it does not deliver the set sizes, which is not fair. The team is going to rethink the algorithm.

  5. 透明部分を含むグレースケールモードのPSDファイルを配置するとGPUプレビューできない。

    オペレーティングシステム macOS 10.15.6(imac20,1 32GBmem/1TBSSD/AMD Radeon Pro 5300_4GB)
    Illustrator CC ver.25.2.3

    問題が発生したときに実行していた手順
    1. CMYKドキュメントをGPU表示で編集中に透明部分を含むグレースケールモードのPSDファイルを配置する。
    2. GPUプレビューからCPUプレビューに切り替わり、以降、Illustratorを再起動するまでそのドキュメントでは先程の配置画像を除去してもGPUプレビュー表示に戻せない。

    想定していた結果
    GPU表示が正しく機能する。

    実際の結果
    CPU表示に強制的に切り替わってしまい、GPUプレビュー表示に出来ない。

    RGBモードのドキュメントではこの症状は発生しません。透明部分を含む画像形式であっても他の形式ではこの問題は発生しません。また、Windowsでは起きないとの報告を受けています。

    製品フィードバックへのご協力ありがとうございます。

    Mac 版の Illustrator 2021 製品版にて、以下の現象が確認されました。
    (Windows 版、または Illustrator 2020 では問題が発生しない)

    ・グレースケール PSD ファイルは、背景をレイヤーに変換しただけでも問題が再現する
    ・RGB カラーモードのドキュメントに配置した場合は問題ない
    ・埋め込み配置の場合は問題ない

    今後、さらに検証を行ってまいります。
    情報アップデートがありましたら、こちらでご報告いたします。

  6. Locked background objects unlocking/moving when using lasso selection tool

    When I select using the LASSO tool, on screen shows the correct points have been selected, but when I then try to move just these selected points, Illustrator also moves the LOCKED background objects underneath. This error does not happen when I select using other tools. This is clearly a bug!

  7. Pasted artwork does not remember sublayers

    When pasting artwork from one file to another with matching layer and sub-layer names, Illustrator will not remember sub layers and pasted artwork has to be re-sorted in to sub layers.

  8. AltGr key not working

    AltGr key does not work as intended, it currently only produces a Ctrl+Alt keypress. On many European keyboard layouts it is used to type e.g. characters @, [, {, |, \, ~, and currency symbols (€, $, £). The only way to circumvent this is to use e.g. Notepad to type in the characters and copy-pasting them, which is a nuisance. All the other Adobe CC apps - just as basically every other Windows app in the world - use AltGr as intended, so why does not Illustrator?

    AltGr is supposed to be equivalent to Alt + ctrl.
    At present, when we press e.g. AltGr + E while writing text, we check if any command can handle it and if yes it is not passed to application to handle key event. That’s why existing commands are triggered on those extended char shortcuts.

    If we want to change the behavior that while writing text key shortcuts (e.g. AltGr + E) should write extended character, Then we will have to sacrifice all the text contextual shortcuts we have at present in app e.g. ctrl + alt + I does something. All those commands would stop working.
    This is the reason why we are moving it to the feature

  9. Maintain width and Height Proportions bug

    This has been a bug for at least a version or two: draw a shape, go to transform it in the Properties panel, and even though the "Maintain width and Height Properties" icon indicates "not constrained", adjusting one of the dimensions adjusts the other proportionally. This seems to happen only in a fresh file (perhaps fresh launch of Illustrator), and once I click and unclick the Constrain button once, it doesn't recur in that session.

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/u0gqadn2lezzq7n/Constraint%20bug.mov?dl=0

    So in the screen grab above, I draw a box freehand, then in the Properties panel, begin adjusting the height with my arrow keys.…

  10. Alt-Drag to Duplicate (and Shift to align) Only Works Intermittently

    Duplicating objects in Illustrator CC 2017 only works on occasion, it is not consistent as it was in previous versions. Holding Shift to align while dragging and duplicating also doesn't work. These were both key features of Illustrator and if there is a way to fix this problem I would be very interested to know how!

  12. 英数字に対する和欧文間のアキの基準が欧文の前後で異なる(バージョン不問)

    例えば、「第1章」という文字列に対して、数字だけを大きくしたとします。
    この際に和欧文間隔は当然適用されるのですが、その(アキの)基準が数字の前後で異なってしまいます。
    添付画像をご覧になれば一目瞭然ですが…数字の前は数字の文字サイズを基準にしており、数字の後は後続の文字が基準になっています。
    普通のアルファベットの場合は、前後とも直前と直後の文字が基準になっているのは画像の右でお判りいただけるでしょう。
    これはずーーーーっと改善されておりませんので、是非ともアルファベット同様な挙動になるように改善をお願いいたします。

  14. 和文組版の横組み文字列中の文字回転

    Illustratorの日本語組版で、横組み文字列中の1文字を回転すると、文字が上下・左右に暴れて表示されてしまいます。
    ※縦組み中ではそういった不具合は観察されません。
    添付ファイルのように検証してみましたが、その回転の際の原点あるいは挙動原理などがよくわかりません。
    例えば、添付ファイル右下のように補正してみても、同じファミリー内でウエイトを変更しただけでもその補正値は変わるようです(平均字面が関係している?)。
    和文書体は、(欧文ベールライン位置や平均字面は様々でも)基本的には正方形の仮想ボディに納められていますので、仮想ボディの中心を回転の原点としていただければ、このような補正の手間がなくなるのではないだろうか? と考えられます。
    挙動を変更していただければ、作業者の負担も軽減されるでしょう。

    なお、このような「横組み文字列中のひと文字を回転する」という処理は、あまり日常的にすることではありませんので、既存ファイルへの影響も軽微なものであろうと考えていますが、変更していただくならば、【その変更を周知】していただくことは大切なことだと申し添えておきます。

    よろしくお願いします。

  15. SVG Export Missing XML Encoding Tag

    The latest updates to Illustrator (21.0.1) seems to have removed the all-important encoding tag required by browsers to render SVG appropriately when embedding etc. in an html page.

    It exports the svg without this tag at the beginning of the file.
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>

  17. Gradient tool issues

    1. Handles on on object's Gradient Annotator are difficult to adjust once a gradient has been dropped. Usually, handles simply don't respond. User needs to start from scratch and create a brand new gradient rather than make small adjustments to existing ones.

    2. Repeated but not consistent bug: adjusting one gradient causes changes to unrelated gradients on same document.

    3. Live preview of gradient tool is prohibitively slow, esp when gradient is anywhere near an existing Effect.

    FIX: Allow us to toggle the preview effect.

    1. Dropping a color onto the gradient slider, color creates a new color-point onto slider, immediately next to existing…

  18. Color palette overrides fill colors and color modes in Illustrator 2018

    Hi, I am a design professor and most students in my class experienced a specific problem when we were doing an exercise to learn how to apply the correct color palettes to different logo files. Specifically, we created fictional identity designs as a means to learn how to create a production-ready bundle of files (a logo with versions in b&w, spot color (Pantone), 4-color process, and RGB). Almost 100% of my 18 students had their 4-color process file -- which was filled with CMYK colors upon designing, and should have stayed CMYK -- show up as being filled with RGB…

    If I set it to 1, cliclk in the X: box and press the down arrow on my keyboard, it doens't work.

    The only way to set it back is via the Paragraph panel.
