    Hi Everyone,

    We have fixed this bug in our latest release – v 24.2.1 which is available worldwide now. Thanks for your patience on this.

    Please note that after upgrading you might still see that Align To sets itself to Align to Key Object. If you see this, please manually set the Align To to the required setting, and this reported bug will not happen again. You’ll need to this one time only.

    The reason Align To might get set to Key Object after update is because Ai remembers your last Align To on subsequent launches as well. So, if your last Align To was Key Object before quitting/upgrading, after first multi-selection, it will set itself to Key Object. After you manually change it one-time, it will work fine.

    You can update to the latest release using Creative Cloud desktop App: https://helpx.adobe.com/in/creative-cloud/help/creative-cloud-updates.html

    In the latest version of Illustrator there is a new "feature" that is driving me crazy! Whenever two objects are selected, Illustrator now automatically selects the top object as the key object, whereas before, you had to click on one of the objects a second time to activate the key object. I want to know how to turn this "feature" off as it completely hinders my workflow and is not a "feature" that I care at all about getting accustomed to. I need to be able to select the key object that I want to be a key object when I want to and not have Illustrator select it automatically. I have alignment issues that I do not always want to have a key object. Please help as I have reverted to a previous version to avoid this annoying "feature."

    Today is September 14, 2020 and the issue is still not resolved. I traced an object about ten minutes ago and it still drops the traced object down and to the right. I just don't understand why it can't just keep the same coordinates as the original. Trying to get it back to where it was is senseless and not as exacting as I am accustomed to experiencing in Adobe Illustrator.

    I am currently working with version 24.1.3. I have refused the update to any version beyond this one because of the new "Auto Key Object" feature that was added in the newer version. I would prefer to continue to manually select a key object if I even want one and I have not discovered a way to turn off the "Auto Key Object" feature in the newer versions, so I reverted back to version 24.1.3.

    For the record, I fervently disagree with this new addition as it messes up my workflow in a way such that I am unable to do my work with it on. Therefore, I have and will refuse the update until THAT issue is either fixed or at least made to be optional.
