    This was a long time ago, but did you ever figure out that your document was in CMYK color mode? Note that in your screenshot, your black is CMYK pure-black, which will not map directly to RGB/Hex pure-black.

    Changing to or creating a document as RGB would prevent this from happening.

    Background:

    • CC libraries does not have support for Global Process Colors
    • Some users have spoken about InDesign – InDesign does not support Global Process colors
    • Illustrator does support process colors , global process colors and spot colors. The issue is specefic to global process colors – since it is not supported in CC Libraries. We have added the request to support in CC libraries backlog,

    Workaround:

    • Create Process colors in Illustrator and add it to CC libraries – deselect the global checkbox

    Need More Info  ·  Yogesh Sharma responded

    A couple of questions on this:

    1. Would it be okay to have a separate spec creation service much like the upcoming Adobe XD service? On this service, anyone with a link, can select any objects, and view its dimensions (W/H), colors, fonts etc. Or should it be inside Illustrator.

    2. Are you only going to create horizontal, and vertical dimensions? Or would you also like to have angular dimensions as well?

    Please share more details about your workflow.

    Thanks,
    Yogesh

    Looks like a bug in the Properties panel specifically. Does not affect the Control bar though.

    Testing: After having constrained proportions *turned on* at shut-down of existing session: open illustrator, create new document and make sure the control bar and the properties panel are both visible. The ‘constrain porportions’ chainlinks button will show as selected/turned on in the control bar but not in the properties panel. Properties panel will behave according to the setting in the control bar.

    I never noticed because I don't use the properties panel for anything, since it's always been a complete garbage waste of screen real estate.

    Same issue. I noticed the 'wont recognize key object' bug pretty much as soon as I started using the latest CC2019 update but the input box bug wasn't noticed until quite a while later. Mine seems to default to points; input "10" and the items distribute with 10 points spacing between them rather than 10in as I have set via my preferences.

    I did also notice it occasionally seeming to fix itself but never was able to narrow down how/why. The save-as causing it to self-correct is something I'll keep an eye on.

    I found that in CC 2019, this doesn't work if multiple text objects are selected, but it does work for me if one object is selected. Alternatively what I've been doing is right-clicking on the text style or paragraph style in the libraries pallet and adding to the document's styles, then using those to change multiple selected text objects to the desired style.

    Does Object > Shape > Expand shape do what you're looking for? I experimented by drawing a rectangle, then using the live corners widgets to change them to a random radius size. Using the above menu command removes the widgets and changes the object from a "Rectangle" (in the layers pallet) to a "Path" object.

    Bonus, if you need the widgets back, just go back into Object > Shape > Convert to shape and the widgets come back.

    It looks like you have Align to pixel grid turned on. Turn that off and see if what you're expecting to happen works as you think it should. It's the little sideways U shape next to 3 squares at the top-right corner of the application window.

    Good to know, thanks.

    One of our first troubleshooting steps based on something our IT guy found/heard somewhere was to uninstall fontbase, but that did not fix the issue for us at the time. I suspect it has something to do with the fontbase associated files which were located in the Adobe CEP extensions folder before we deleted it. I don't believe that folder was deleted when we uninstalled fontbase.

    The folder has since been re-created by fontbase on my system, the folder is called "com.fontbase.activator" on my windows 10 workstation. Contained therein are the following items (bottom two are files, the others are folders):

    CSXS

    html

    js

    jsx

    META-INF

    mimetype

    package.json

    The folders contain various javascript, xml and html files.

    It was also noted that we did not experience any issues until we upgraded fontbase to the pro version, for what it might be worth to anyone.

    to mathewm, I an currently unable to reproduce any issues listed, including with object > path > offset path.

    Has it been confirmed that everyone with this issue is on Windows and using Fontbase?

    Lance commented  · 

    We've now been seeing that a different user logged in with a 'fresh' account and preferences *on another user's workstation* does not experience the issue, whereas they do on their own workstations:

    User A has this issue.
    User B has this issue.
    User C apparently does not, or has not reported experiencing the problem.

    User A logs in to User B's machine (windows 10 sets up new account / illustrator prefs, etc..) Issue does not manifest.
    User B logs in to User C's machine (same as above), issue does not manifest.

    Both User A and B continue to see the issue on their own workstations.

    Yes MatM, I had read the latest at the forum. I have been able to verify that the drawing issue only seems to manifest when more than one document is open.

    I have read over the post linked below. We here see similar/same issues, and we have fontbase. I believe our IT dept attempted a fix by removing/deactivating fontbase somehow but it was determined not to rectify the issue on that machine..

    We're seeing this issue at my workplace as well, last I heard a downgrade to CC 2019 23.0 fixed the issue for at least one of our users, but he lost all of his preferences in the process.

    There also seems to be an associated bug with the move / selection tools and the dialog boxes accessed when double-clicking them (the "Move" dialog):
    1. Sometimes the click-dragged object will randomly snap back into its original position, as if the user 'dropped' it and immediately executed an undo command.
    2. The 'preview' checkbox/feature on many dialogs (scale, move, etc) will bug out; scaling from 100% down to 75% with preview on works, but then entering 100% again scales *down* again instead of back up to 100%. Similar issues with the Move dialog.

    @Cesar, I know it isn't ideal, in fact it tends to be infuriating, especially since 'smart' guides are usually much less than 'smart'. I find they often try to assist you in aligning your object to something completely unrelated on the other side of the document, especially on a busy artboard(s).

    Lance commented  · 

    The workaround is to disable smart guides temporarily, ctrl/cmd+U is the keyboard shortcut, or find it in the View menu.

    With smart guides on the "shift to constrain" acts really weird, and as you say the user must drag exactly along the line of the angle they wish to use or else the object snaps back to its original position. Turning off smart guides makes the "shift to constrain" work as expected.
