WHEN IS THIS GETTING FIXED?
All the issues with Type have NOT been fixed whatsoever. I've currently uninstalled the latest version of Illustrator TWICE. Once, without deleting all data and then again with deleting all data.
Thanks for reporting this bug Illustrator Team really appreciate this.
We are able to reproduce this issue in house and we are investigating it .
I would like to add that I've reached out to Adobe support about this issue before with no response. Also, I've had this issue on multiple computers and tried uninstalling/reinstalling twice (once deleting all date, once without). Problem still persists. Some other glitches that occur when the character palette stops working, is random objects will become grouped. And command Z does not do anything. So a restart of the application is required. PLEASE get this figured out as soon as possible as I'm sure there are others out there like me that have client deadlines to meet.
Thanks for providing the feedback. We are able to reproduce this issue at our side and have forwarded it for isolation.
With Best Regards,
