    Hm. I am checking this in the fresh release, and yeah, pressing and holding Shift before clicking the object (no matter if it’s text or not) deselects it.
    But when I check this in older versions, like 10, it is the same exact behavior. So it was never an option to do that. Shift+click always subtracted/added to selection.
    Click and hold Shift after is the way to constraint, and it works — first drag then constrain.

    Mark, you were the last who joined the report — can you shed more light on that, please?

    I also attach two GIFs that show how it used to work (fine), and how it does work now, in several latest releases (not OK).

    It’s a known bug, and I believe it is fixed in the Beta.
    Can you check it and see if it works fine for you?
    If not, please provide more details — how do you scale exactly? which snapping options are enabled for you? If possible, please record a video to make sure we talk about the same thing.

    Bobby, what is that rival app you are referring to?

    You can!
    View > Snap to Glyph (and make sure you have Smart Guides on too).
    Does it work for you?

    I am glad to remind all who voted for this feature that it is now possible to set a font size as x-height or cap height with Show Font Height Options toggle enabled in Character panel menu.


    Some issues still remain, yes, like, wrong size calculation if a font has rounded stems that end below baseline (https://illustrator.uservoice.com/forums/601447-illustrator-desktop-bugs/suggestions/44639661-font-height-options-misbehave-with-rounded-fonts), or inability to focus the dropdown with Tab (https://illustrator.uservoice.com/forums/601447-illustrator-desktop-bugs/suggestions/41836618-font-height-options-tab-order), or calculating font height by measuring glyphs instead of reading the actual value within the font (https://illustrator.uservoice.com/forums/601447-illustrator-desktop-bugs/suggestions/41615035-cap-height-setting-not-using-font-cap-height), but overall this is done, works, and super cool, don’t you think?

    Yeah, Bobby, you are right, the measuring is done by actual glyph measuring. This leads to the exact problem you assumed with the rounded stems with overshoots below the baseline — I learned it the hard way. Actually I hoped that Illustrator will grab the font data to set font height... but I now have doubts. If this information is available, why then the team decided to to the measuring instead? Only because these were the steps I demonstrated? I very much doubt. May be there is no such data in a font and I was wrong all along?

    As for the alignment... There is a request for that, https://illustrator.uservoice.com/forums/333657/suggestions/41485519
    You commented for it, but never voted. Please do, every voice matters. It’d be great if you also voted for other request.

    Regarding previous comment, in recent version Illustrator does remember which part of a text had which option chosen. That is fixed.

    The setting doesn’t stick to a text object. After the application is restarted (or even document is reopened), it falls back to Em Box for each one of them :( This is not convenient.

    Don’t forget to include these to Paragraph and Character Styles windows, please.

    The space is missing in the 'Default (Em Box)' option in the Font Height drop-down menu in Character panel

    Please add custom-assignable hotkeys for these commands (in 'Other Text' section, blank by default):
    — Highlight font height using Default (Em Box)
    — Highlight font height using Cap-Height
    — Highlight font height using x-Height
    — Highlight font height using ICF box
    So pressing a hotkey would change the 'Font Height' option to the chosen one and then set the cursor to the 'Font Size' field.
    This would allow to quickly set the height by the option needed from the keyboard, without changing it with the mouse.

    There's a script that helps with setting both x-height and cap height.
    http://illustrator.hilfdirselbst.ch/dokuwiki/en/skripte/javascript/uebersicht
    Search for WR-capitalSize and then modify it to use any symbol you want.
    Still it's much needed thing in AI from the box.

    Sorry, I found your big comment in other request, you seem to already know about these scripts.
    I totally agree about UPM and other dimensions all fonts already have, and AI's inability to give access to them.
    I would also like to have these sizes to be visible as guides when using Smart guides for a live text.

    Bobby, I can advise using scripts that set cap-height and x-height, based on measuring actual outlines of specified letters, by Wolfgang's Reszel.
    Again :)

    I guess you have never these pictures:

    You seem to not knowing much about things you do. 'Print size'? What kind of ignoramus are you? Fonts are much more complicated than your understanding of it.
    But the problem is still there. I have scripts, based on Wolfgang's Reszel scripts, to set x-height and cap-height (and digit size, which is frequently different from a cap-height), based on realtime measurement of height of 'z' and 'Z' outlines (as common 'flat-surfaced' letters), but there would be so much profit if AI could allow to measure and set these, based on values included into font itself.

    A way to workaround this is to Rasterize a copy of the stacked stuff and then pick color from it

    A user should be able to use predefined colors for new artboards, that is correct. I know people who prefer black, who hates yellow, who always stick to default blues, who would like to have inverse edges, relative to the artwork beneath (!).
    Having a blue art in a blue colored layer forces me to switch it way to much :(

    AlexM, Lance, check out VectorFirstAid plugin by AstuteGraphics.
    You can set a checkup there to clear all off-artboard art and run it in a several clicks.
    VFA is incredibly powerful when it comes to this mundane operations.

    This seems like a work that actions can handle... if only Next/Previous Artboard commands could be recorded. So, alas, only scripts or plugins.
