    Catalina on two different Macs from 2017 and 2018. I can’t upgrade OS, as some other important software is incompatible with later versions. Question however remains - what this process is for, since all functionalities of my typical workflow work without it? (I’ve killed this process and Illustrator remains fuctional and stable, for days now).

    Just updated to 27.5 and this exact problem occured. So, the most important question is - what exactly this process is there for? Illustrator seems to be working just fine without it...

    @Egor: I don't use beta versions, "stable" versions are enough pain on their own...

    Now about the issue. Personally, I don't care about exact HSB values, only about the utility of HSB input in navigating colour space. So the solution, for me personally, would be to include secondary value display in HSB dialogs, showing CMYK numbers, with a checkbox to "snap" input to round CMYK numbers and a second checkbox to keep colours inside gamut. This way, HSB input is only an overlay for CMYK mode, not a mode in it's own right. So when working on something like corporate identity, where numbers have to be exact and stable, they are, but when you're simply using global swatches to keep the artwork consistent and easy to recolor, you don't have to switch input mode every time.

    And obviously, "you had one job" is just a meme reaction to first being positively surprised by finally addressing this issue, only to discover, that it hasn't really been addressed.

    It is even worse, than I thought when writing my last post... HSB is only remembered for global swatch dialog when in RGB document mode. In CMYK document mode, it always opens in CMYK. Seriously guys, do you even test those things before publishing those new "features"?

    Can I suggest, that instead of letting Illustrator guessing or "remembering" which color mode to use, you instead add a "sticky" CHOICE of default colour dialog mode in preferences?

    HOW, just HOW is this possible, that after finally addressing this issue, you have failed so miserably? Yes, if I change the mode of the colour panel to HSB, it stays in HSB, as long as I don't use "convert to process" icon when using global swatch - the panel then switches to RGB/CMYK, depending on document mode and stays that way, until I set it to HSB again. I work with a lot of global swatches, so your advertised "color mode memory" "works" about half of the time I have to use colour panel. But it is not the only place, where you did not implement it. When I double click a swatch to edit it, the panel remembers HSB. But if I want to make a new swatch from selection via + icon in the panel, dialog box opens in document colour space.

    You had ONE job....

    @Aaron: how are those different from the built in option of creating swatch group from selected artwork?

    Hi Everyone,

    Thanks for the feedback. The color yellow has been removed altogether as a layer color, and has been replaced by Magenta color for Layer 5. This functionality is available in our latest release build – 24.1.1 for Win and 24.1 for Mac which is available worldwide now.

    What’s new in 24.1: https://helpx.adobe.com/illustrator/using/whats-new.html

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

    Thank you for all the feedback.

    @ Egor: It is a really simple template - a safe colour/easy for the eyes background, few technical colours and a layer stack for the layer colour trick, reference and work. Those 27 necessary layers are hidden within FOR CYAN generator layer.

    EDIT: no matter how I try, and from what browser, the template file does not upload.

    @Egor I can't say I love actions, but I do use them. The reason why this workaround fits my workflow better is that I use multiples of colour coded layers for different aspects of my work. Usually 3-5 different, repetitive colours in a file, that at the end of the project contains dozens of top level layers, each with dozens nested sublayers in it. So I would need 5 shortcut actions to replicate this flow. And there is no cumbersome stack, as those 27 layers can be sublayers hidden inside of one of those "generator" layers. So my template file now consists of reference layer, work layer and 2-5 generator layers. It is neat enough and very convenient to use. The additional problem with F-key assigned actions is that on a laptop this requires using awkwardly located Fn button (so using two hands for half of F-keys) and differs significantly from using the same F-keys on a full sized keyboard, messing up with my muscle memory. An alternative of setting up the keyboard to use F-keys as default collides with just too much other everyday uses of the keyboard.

    A convenient trick I just came up with to get multiple layers with a desired colour via + icon in layers panel: make a layer with a colour PRECEDING the one you want and move it to the bottom of the stack. When you select this layer and click on + icon, the new layer will have the next colour from the list - your desired one. It is still a workaround, but fits my workflow well enough without having to get accustomed to F-key script workflow. EDIT: ech... this trick only works if you have more than 27 layers in your document, so you run out of the predefined colours sequence. Illustrator is a strange beast indeed. But since you can put layers into other layer, a template for this trick at least doesn't look strange.

    Why there is no default layer colour setting boggles my mind. It has been requested since forever (at least the last 15 years that I work in AI) and it shouldn't really be all that hard to implement. Ideally, there should be an option to set custom default colour and a checkbox to either use this default for every new layer or to cycle through the list of colours. The list itself should also be customizable. I'm seriously photosensitive epileptic and as it is now I have to tripple check to always manually set safe layer colours for the content, to prevent accidental exposure to high colour contrast lines pattern when I "select all" on some dense design.

    @Egor
    Thank you for the plugin suggestion, I'll try it. The "split path" method is a bit too cumbersome for a fast lineart workflow, segment dragging is all in all more convenient.

    Blender and some other programs have a ctrl modifier key default as a snap toggle and it is a godsend. This should be easy to implement. As it is now, I have to turn smart guides on/off all the time when making linearts with pen tool, as I want to start/end them exactly on other paths, but I don't want anchor handles to snap to paths or angles. This is annoying as ****.

    This one in particular, but I never understood why AI does not have all of the blending modes that are available in Photoshop. Linear Burn, Linear Dodge (Add) and Vivid Light are the ones I miss the most.

    Hi Everyone,

    All the effect checkboxes have now been set to ON by default, and are sticky (meaning that if you disable preview, on next launch of Illustrator preview will remain disabled). This functionality now is available in our latest release build – 24.1.1 for Win and 24.1 for Mac which is available worldwide now.

    What’s new in 24.1: https://helpx.adobe.com/illustrator/using/whats-new.html

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