Special characters not working on Adobe Illustrator v26
Not being able to use special characters in certain languages is being a bit troublesome for some users, according to reports:
I can’t comment on the “č” key. Maybe make a bug report? Or first try and reset the preferences?
But the automatic update can be turned off in the Creative Cloud app in the preferences.
Fortunately, a member of the Adobe team confirmed that they are already aware of this issue.
Thanks for sharing the details, @jakubF. We’re able to replicate this issue at our end and our engineers are working on it. I would request if you could upvote this issue here and stay tuned for updates. Regards!
It looks like Adobe developers worked quickly on the issue, and the fix is reportedly implemented in the latest beta version of Adobe Illustrator.
If all goes well, the fix should be massively rolled out very soon in Adobe Illustrator v26.0.1 stable update. It only remains to wait for users to confirm if the bug is really resolved once the new update is available.

At the moment, affected users can only wait for new updates on this matter. To keep you informed, we’ll update this article as and when any further development takes place. So keep a track of this space.
