    I noticed some time ago that export for screens settings for PDF are not actually what the function uses when exporting PDFs of all artboards. Instead it uses whatever the last-used PDF export or 'save-as > pdf' joboptions settings were.

    For instance, I can select a custom joboptions in export for screens, but if I most recently used save-as and selected PDF-X/4 preset, then export for screens will use PDF-X/4 instead.

    Not sure whether that's an intended behavior, but the way the dialog it set up to allow selecting a specific joboptions setting I don't believe it is intentional.

    You might want to take a look at File > Export > Export for screens

    It does what you're asking for here.
    Beware though, it will always use the most recently used PDF save/export settings, regardless what you set it to in Export for screens. So, if you need a particular set of PDF options, make sure to save a single test-document with those before using Export for screens.

    All this does is add a scale factor to any exported PDF if the user selects version 1.6 or higher. The actual PDF page size is still limited to 200x200 inches.*

    It is not made obvious anywhere within Illustrator's new document dialogs that a user can make an artboard larger than 200x200 inches should they wish to do so.

    *All of this because distiller is still a thing, and is stuck with the 200x200 inch limitation for PostScript thanks to outdated limitations of the windows printer driver.

    You'd think this wouldn't be an issue to begin with since we're constantly bombarded with "metric is so much better, it's just moving the decimal place, so easy...!" .....yet people can't seem to figure out how to self-scale their art by dividing by 10. (just move the decimal, it's so easy!)

    I have attempted to reproduce this behavior and cannot get my current install to do it.

    The Unite and Merge commands in the pathfinder pallet both behave the same with filled path objects, but any stroke is lost with Merge.

    Changing the color of one of the path objects results in the same thing as Trim, though.

    What sort of quality are you hoping to achieve? This is about the best I can get using the photo you uploaded

    Do you happen to have any plugins installed, or any user input device drivers, or font management applications?

    I have both a Logitech Options software for my mouse and FontBase running and occasionally get one of these oddball pallets show up at startup that don't have any content in them.

    Hi Everyone,

    We have fixed this bug in our latest release – v 24.2.1 which is available worldwide now. Thanks for your patience on this.

    Please note that after upgrading you might still see that Align To sets itself to Align to Key Object. If you see this, please manually set the Align To to the required setting, and this reported bug will not happen again. You’ll need to this one time only.

    The reason Align To might get set to Key Object after update is because Ai remembers your last Align To on subsequent launches as well. So, if your last Align To was Key Object before quitting/upgrading, after first multi-selection, it will set itself to Key Object. After you manually change it one-time, it will work fine.

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

    Verify that you do not have one of the objects selected as a key object. If that's the case, all the objects will center on the key object when using 'distribute'. Your screenshot makes it look like one of them is selected as a key object (the thicker selection highlight)

    As an aside, this latest update on my machine has introduced an occasional bug that causes a key object to be automatically selected when selecting multiple objects. It is very annoying.

    EDIT: They're aware of the issue and working on it.

    How are your color settings configured? I can only see this happening if the file you're getting color from is using a different RGB profile (or no profile) than the new file you create and paste art into.

    I believe there's a setting for that in preferences, "Select Same Tint %" in the General section.

    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.
