  5. Can not move object

    I can not move selecting object by mouse. When i try to move, there is always sound 'do-ding'. But, when I move it by keyboard and stretch object, it can. What should I do?

  6. Settings

    Good day. My problem is that I worked for a very long time in Adobe Photoshop (cs3,4,5,6, cc). But Ai surprised me - to make a backup of the workspace I have to go to AppData / Roaming / Adobe / Illustrator etc and make a copy of the folder, because when I open a new document, I get a completely different space. (Export/import settings do not help) Why can’t you transfer the settings to the program, and not to the open document? Every time I do as I feel comfortable and every time I reduce the Tool panel, because…

  7. Shape fill colour and path not aligned in GPU view

    When GPU view is turned on (which is often necessary as Illustrator now runs so slowly in CPU), the fill colour of objects isn't completely aligned to the path. This makes it extremely difficult when working with anchors. It is only an appearance issue and is resolved when you switch to CPU view, however could this be resolved in GPU?

  8. When zooming in in 23.0.3 what I am zooming in on disappears and takes several seconds to load. Frustrating & time wasting.

    When zooming in in 23.0.3 what I am zooming in on disappears and takes several seconds to load. It worked fine in the previous version. It also is taking a very long time to open files that used to open quickly.

  10. Tool for understanding storage size (bytes in file/memory) of single object or group of ojbects in document

    Often Illustrator file size have very large size. And Illustrator interface at now provide no ways for understand, which objects englarge file size, and how to reduce the size.

    Main question is for embedded objects (pixel images) - before embedding we can see file size, but after embedding - fields in panel becomes empty! Why?

    So, please fix, at first, showing info about embedded images in Links panel, and next - create some tool for review size of currently selected group of objects.

  11. Freezing

    The image does not change. I go to a new tab with a different file and the same image is showing.
    I go to use the Align tab and STILL showing the Layers tab. I have to completely quit illustrator. This has been happening since the update. This is costing me production time. I have to quit illustrator and reopen at least 10 times a day.

  12. Snap values Corner Widget (1,2,3 / 5,10,15 / ...)

    To get some consistency in artwork, it would be nice if the Corner Widget could constrain to (given) values, while shift is pressed e.g.

  13. Illustrator CC 23.0.1 keeps reopening after closing a file

    After I close out a file in Illustrator a blank window pops up ready to make another file. Very irritating. If I wanted to start another file I would open it manually. Otherwise I have to close out the new window to do some other task on my computer. How do I make it stop opening back up??Attached is the window that keeps popping up.

  14. Lag from Adobe Draw to Desktop application in Mac

    There is a lag from Adobe Draw App (on the iPad) to Desktop application in Mac. It is seamless from Ipad to Microsoft. I have to restart my Mac to get the transfer working. It is a pain as I am between tasks, to have to close all my files to restart the applications. Please look into it, appreciate it!

  15. crashed and erased my project file? from two hard drives?

    Just letting you know I just updated AI and it just crashed and the project file I was working on (that I had saved to two separate external hard drives) is nowhere to be found now, it didn't show up in my recent files and now I have searched where it was saved on both hard drives and it is completely gone. Awesome. So I guess my request is that if illustrator crashes make it to where it at least doesn't delete the project completely, and autosave backup would be nice but I'd really rather not have to start projects…

  16. Shortcut Customization like Corel

    Time Saving Shortcut Customization like Corel. There are so many extra steps you have to take instead of being able to create your own shortcut keys. Align/Distribute is just one of many.

  17. Illustrator is full of bugs, what is happening?

    I've never experience such poor performance, it took me more than 3 days to complete a simple logo because Illustrator is extremely slow, full of bugs, pixelated vector, invisible layers wont go invisible, crashing without saving even when I have saved my preferences to save files when crash occur. Indesign has been giving some issues too but I didn't really had the time to deal with the app to figure it out more. I just wish Illustrator would work smoothly every time I work on it, is extremely painful to waste all that time trying to figure it out what…

  19. Path selection sensitivity in Illustrator

    You've finally made the node & anchor point sizes adjustable - HURRAY! However now when trying to directly select a path, i instead have to click on an area NEAR it but not ON it, so as not to pick up the other nearby paths. Furthermore, instead of being able to click in a blank area and drag my selection tool to pick up the paths Id like, it picks up everything near enough to where I've clicked in that blank space. It NEVER used to do that. Ive tried adjusting all the settings to no avail. its like now…

  20. assign key short cuts to change Constrain angle in prefs

    I would like to see access to Doc prefs via short cuts / actions. So for example when i press F3 i change constrain angle to 30 degrees. Currently use a keyboard macro make for this but its not very good. In general if we could access more things via shortcuts and actions it would make work flows more efficient.
