Hi guys, this happens on both illustrator and InDesign as far as I know and both seem to place CC library objects apparently randomly as I have failed to recreate the glitch and has even done it without any keystrokes.
It seems to place a CC object along as a CC object is on the artboard. Once it places an object, it will then place it again in the exact coordinates every single time and then place 2 objects then 4 then 8 then 16 etc.
It even tries to place when all layers are locked.
I really need some help with this, I have uninstalled and updated all versions multiple times and no luck!
I have attached a video for an example. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0e_KFvmpMbY
Sorry to hear about this. This is not the usual behavior of the app. Would you mind sharing the version of the Illustrator? Is Windows & Creative Cloud app updated to the latest version? Does it happen with a specific file or all?
This information would help us assist you accordingly.
It had been a single file every time, however, that could be because it was last used as its a file I used often. The other day it was the first time it was a different file (one I had used recently)
My Ai. is 25.0.1
Id. is 16.0.1
and CC is 18.104.22.1680
Just been testing out a few things,
- It is the most recent asset
- If you have multiple documents open, each document will duplicate in the background.
- Indesign I get an error message "Either the File does not exist, you do not have permission"
- If you ignore the problem, it will keep duplicating until it crashes illustrator
