  1. 3D Extrude & Bevel shouldn't have a depth and rotation by default

    I think it's annoying that every object that I want to apply a 3d effect to already has a 50 pt extrude depth and axis rotation by default + preview option checked.
    Sometimes it takes forever to render the preview for something I don't even want, but the preview is checked by default so it immidiatly starts rendering when I open the effect window.
    Would be great to open the Extrude & Bevel window with zeros in every field, saves a lot of time, especially when working with complex objects.

  2. Illustrator 2021 Won't Open

    Every time I try to open AI/2021 the icon just bounced and the App Panel just hangs and nothing happens. I'm using a 2017 version of the 2013 desktop, with plenty of RAM, all my other apps work except this - any tips boffins?

  3. Little display problem with GPU enabled

    Hi, I bought an Imac 27" with 5K Retina display.

    I noticed that when I zoom some vector shape, the lines are not too clean. They seem like bitmapped. When I click Command+Y (show outlines) and I click it again, the lines appear clean. I uploaded a little video about my problem.

    I wrote in Adobe community, they suggested me to turn off GPU Performance. If i do that the images appears fine but Illustrator become too slow.

    So they recommended me to report my issue here.

    Thanks for your time.

  4. Illustrator 2020 tarda demasiado en cerrar los archivos

    Se tarda hasta 4 segundos en cerrar un archivo ya guardado, suelo abrir 10 archivos al mismo por mi trabajo y es insoportable esperar a que cierren sin poder hacer nada más, en Windows 10.

  6. Power Efficiency

    Since I've moved to working remotely entirely, I've noticed how quickly using several Adobe programs burns through my laptop battery. I'm running a brand new 16" Macbook Pro with the latest MacOS Catalina version, and I'm lucky if I get an hour and a half of battery life while running InDesign and Illustrator at the same time. When I review what is using the most battery life, my Mac lists InDesign, Illustrator, and Core Sync as the main culprits.

    Now, I understand that these programs at times are fairly graphically intensive, but the battery life I'm getting is absymal, and…

  7. Option for anti-aliasing in Outline View

    Please allow us to turn on anti-aliasing in Outline View. It’s a very useful view for path editing, but it can be difficult to assess the fidelity with all the stepping due to anti-aliasing being off. Making it a toggle would be ideal. Many thanks!

  14. Hide Grid on Perspective Tool

    The "hide grid" function is so frustrating to select. Can it be larger or the target area around it be bigger?

  15. 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?

  16. 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.

  18. 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.

  20. 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.
