Hi there

as ever so often in hte illustratopr updates over hte years we somehow often manage to drop the balll on small important technical things,m & this one has been around the block

 

Colour changes on copy at times behaves inaccurately, when box is hilighted (text box) you can change the colour and overprint bahaviour for that assigned colour,, however, when overprint preview is then activated, hte copy that was changed oin colour has not changed at all, & it claims to overprint, however it actually doesnt.

 

I am hten forced to highlight the copy individually per text box to rectefy this, this is not ideal and actually dangerous as hte visual claims everything is set correctly however its not, this can lead to expensive reruns of large print runs that Adobe would be liable for in my view !!!!!

 

On another note , even if you convert hte entire text to path including the strokes , it still retains the faulty setting (colour & overprint ) but shows itself in hte right colour & overprint behaviour)

 

this is unacceptable & frustrating as it can go really wrong & obviously we all pay a shitload of money for something that AGAIN has been upgraded to non functional on some levels.....

 

same goes for the Illustrator magic want tool that has been rendered useless in the 2020 versions when it comes to its sensetivity settings.

 

SO IN CLOSING

I HOPE THAT THE ABOVE WILL BE RECTEFIED URGENTLY SO THE SOFTWARE I HAVE PAYED FOR FULLFILLS THE FUNCTION IT WAS DESIGNED FOR & NOT BE A RISK FACTOR IN MY PRODUCTION PROCESS & A RISK FOR MY CLIENTS

 

thank for resolving this

Hi there

i believe i have in fair detail explained how & whewre the error comes up, and if you use Illustrator frequently & maybe even for pre press purposes you can pick this error up.

I would hope that Adobe adresses these issues , also note that the latest version keeps switching its colour profile to imulate adobe cs 6 uppon opening of documents that have been backsaved (or at least thats what it looks like), this resulting in colours being displayed incorrectly.....not kidding but this is really really saddening given the USD that i have to spend on this software yearly.

There is a bug caused by the recent Photoshop update. It sets your Illustrator Color Settings to Emulate Illustrator 6, which turns color management off.

If that is the case, use the CC app to revert Photoshop to the Previous version (22.2.0) and then change your Color Settings to what you want it to be.

thank you for this, i tried everything i could think of, reverting was last resort, unfortenate that they cant just simply update without wrecking hteir software, the last itteration of 2021 would simply shut down, that went on for way too long, if you think that we are paying customers, thats like a new car that doesnt start .....unacceptable

Yes, you gave a description, but often a visual example helps to better understand the problem.

Can you share an illustrator file with an example of your problem?

There hasn't been a change to the sensitivity settings in the magic wand tool.

I use it a lot to select colours & pantones & it definitevily can not differentiate between spots & percentages thereof.So i can assure u after using it for the last twelve years that someone dropped the ball. It does not function as well as previously ....in the way that I use it

any constructive feedback i am all ears just screaming itr does is not very professional i'd say

i am aware of that, but here again constructive input vs shouting into a room saying "no your wrong" yet not substantiting that statement is not what we are here for, at least i would not want to answer a question in that way , to peers or to whom ever.....its counter productive.

I did not hear anyone shouting : "no you're wrong".

But I am still curious to see an example of your overprint problem.

here is an example

video file attached it does this with text boxes and vector objects

as for the NO your wrong....monica did not provide any constructive feedback or questions  which equates to *no your wrong*....merely claiming that there has been no change to the sensetivity settings of the magic wand tool is not constructive, also remembering that we all use the functions provided in programs in our own way & for our own purposes, i do FA thats very different use of Adobe Illustrator than a designer or illustrator .... annyway thats a whole different kettle of fish for later.

 

i have attached a video for explanation

Your video doesn't even mention the magic wand, so I'm not sure about your issue with my statement that there hasn't been a change to its behaviour.

 

As for your issue: obviously you have applied something to a group and there have indeed been changes to that. it helps pressing the shift key when you pickup a color to apply to a group. And in order to check out your objects' fills and stuff, it helps to use the appearance panel.  It would have told you that obviously you have created a fill for the group instead of changing the fill of the contents of the group.

I have applied a colour to a group, the apearance panel does not supply any information relating to this problem, assigning and switching colours to objects within groups is a more than basic function that illustrator / adobe has always had since version 5 , it makes NO sense ,as in there is no benefit to discard that function, in particular as the video shows the group does not alert you to the fact that is is only apearing to have the asigned colour yet doesnt really have it/ has a mix of two colours asigned to the same object lol **THATS A GLITCH **

 

and i am not understanding why anyone would just take this lying down ( in other words just say that was changed & so be it)

 

This forum is here to challenge these changes if there are illogical or seem more like a glitch & unfortensately thats the way i see this, especially in the way that i use this software

 

i have nothing to add and will explore other avenues to resolve this

Yes, it does. The apparance panel tells you where the fills are applied.
