    This is still happening. It's been happening for several years before I filed this bug. It didn't used to happen. I can't remember which release introduced this behavior. It was whatever release "helpfully" started making the portions of clipped paths that are outside the clipping mask be inactive. I hated it then. I still hate it. It constantly trips me up when I am working with shapes drawn over clipping masks. Which I do pretty often.

    Seriously I really hate this behavior. If you are an engineer at Adobe looking for a small thing to try and play with, and spend a day or two fiddling with this, even if you determine that this is a huger problem than it appears, please contact me and I will send you money to buy a beer, or do a small piece of art for you, or something, because you will be poking at something that has been a low-level constant annoyance in my workflow for several *years*.

    Dragging out a marquee with the Zoom tool does this, too. So does the Group Selection tool, and so does Astute's Super Marquee. I really hope this is because they are all relying on the same "Draw Selection Marquee" routine. :)

    Hmm, good point, Egor - here's a couple of screengrabs. They're both absolutely identical but for the rendering method. I've included the result of overlaying them in "difference" mode as well, mostly because I wanted to see just how far apart they were.

    This is on 25.4.1, on a 2017 Macbook Pro. (2.5 GHz Intel Core i7, Intel Iris Plus Graphics 640 1536 MB according to About This Mac. Still on Mojave because I'm not saying goodbye to Neko, the Desktop Cat until I absolutely have to upgrade because I bought a new computer.)

    Also thanks! :)

    (and yeah, I probably should make a separate bug for area type autosize turning itself off, I just noticed it happening while isolating the test case for this one.)

    Here's another one that's doing this for me. It's super simple, just a few layers with some stuff sketched with the Pencil tool, and some translucent shapes with Gaussian Blurs on them to rough in some lighting.

    Interestingly enough if I delete the layer with those blurred shapes and save this as a new file, it's still showing up as edited the moment I load it in.

    To expand on this:

    Illustrator's brush engine stores no less than FIVE sets of data from the stylus on brushed paths - pressure, stylus wheel, tilt, bearing, and rotation. But there is no way to edit this. You have to get all of these variables perfect in one brush stroke, or redraw it from scratch.

    The Width tool, meanwhile, applies a completely DIFFERENT set of data, and does not work on some brushed paths - scatter, calligraphic, and bristle brushes.

    I should be able to brush a path, then go back in with the Width tool and edit ALL of those sets of data. Pressure, stylus wheel, tilt, bearing, and rotation.

    Coming up with a UI for all of these is admittedly a challenge - how do we indicate these five different profiles? Do we show them all at once? Do we have a key to change which one is being shown? My initial thought is that showing one at a time eliminates the problem of figuring out a way to easily add a point in any of those profiles.

    But at the very least, yeah: if you use the Width Tool on a calligraphic/scatter/bristle brush, it should be affecting the existing pressure profile. Really that's what it should have been doing all along with *every* stroke instead of adding width profiles on top of pressure/etc profiles, IMHO...

    I still want this idea. I can somewhat get this effect by applying effect>rasterize to entire layers but I have to remember to go back in and remove that for the final exports.

    Also I should note that I seem to recall that Expression did some extra magic with its layer freezing to make sure that transparency worked correctly with regards to anything below a frozen layer; applying the rasterize effect breaks that.

    Oh, and since I am thinking about this again: the cached bitmap for a 'frozen' layer is NOT used when rendering a bitmap via anything under file>export. It is ONLY for speeding up the preview.

    oh and until Adobe decides to implement this somewhere in the next decade, here's another workaround that's *slightly* less hassle than the mesh trick:

    1. draw a box with a horizontal gradient

    2. effect>rasterize it, probably a high dpi, no need for anti-aliasing or adding a border OR object>expand into a bunch of shapes

    3. make this into an art brush

    4. draw a circle with this brush

    (ideally the rectangle is the same height as the width/height of the circle)

    hahahaha I am here upvoting this one after explaining the mesh trick to someone on a forum :)

    I have lost count of how many times I have seen someone show up on the Illustrator subreddit asking how to get rid of these "weird green lines".

    These need entries in the View menu.

    **** i just saw the gif of how Xara does this that you posted in the prerelease forums, I want this so bad now, it'd make using blends for quick distribution of things along perspective *so* much easier

    Nov 21, 2017: Yogesh Sharma responded "Rotate canvas story has been added to backlog. We will be picking it up shortly."

    Happy birthday, Rotate Canvas Story! You're three years old now!

    Oh hey it's coming up on another year since this "story" was "added to backlog"! I'd better get ready for its birthday party soon.

    Hey are y’all ever going to add this one simple transformation to the matrix you’re already applying every time you draw the preview window? It’s three and a half years since you were gonna “pick it up shortly”.

    As a subsidiary request: I know that international users can have problems with this because they don't *have* this key on their keyboard. And they can't change it, because it doesn't show up in the Keyboard prefs. Having that changeable, whether in the Keyboard prefs, or SOMEwhere, would be icing on the cake.
