  5. I request this program to be brought to 2021 rather than leaving it in the 90s. I hate using this program. It SUCKS

    Bring illustrator to a current user format. It is stuck in the 90s. I HATE using it. I use photoshop, AE, etc. All great. Illustrator SUCKS. Can I say that loud enough.....

  6. Combine all Thumbnail Preview Options

    There are multiple ways to remove thumbnail previews on the Layers, Appearance and Links palettes and these have to be set on every file.

    As a huge drag on screen redraw performance, these should be a single option / button accessible without going into the prefs panel.

    Perhaps with an opt-out tick box per palette to fine tune. For example: Users could have thumbs persist on the layers palette, while the others toggle on a button.

  7. An "Illustrator Lite" that cuts out everything except the essential vector functions, and actually responds quickly.

    Illustrator is just way too slow. If you just drag an item, it really needs to follow the mouse. Everything needs to be snappy. It's just way slower than it was in the old days. Don't tell me it's something to do with my system. It's just too slow. Make it as fast as Figma.

    Perhaps a way to do this is just to have a version that removes a lot of the kruft, and is purely a vector-based program without a lot of the other features, such as bitmap manipulation, styles, etc.

  9. Let us toggle rendering by artboard

    Everything is sooooooo slow! I know there are a million "tips" on how to speed it up but even with a high-end desktop, complex artwork on multiple boards kills illustrator.

  11. Hello Everyone,

    Hello Everyone, I am using Illustrator 25.0.1 version which I updated recently from 25.0, 2021 version. During work I have noticed a small problem in Layers option. First when I copy some artwork from one file which is SPLIT in different LAYERS to another file it does not give me the same SPLIT layers in the new file but put it only in one layer instead.
    Second : If I have given a name to some layer of the Artwork suppose Layer A when I paste the same in new file or another file it does not give me the…

  14. FMA4 vs AVX2/AVX512 implementation

    Please ADOBE, explain to us the benefit and implication of the two/three instruction set types.
    How does this help multiple vector artworks and are they both implemented?

  16. Allineamento ad oggetto bloccati

    Buonasera,
    migliorare la potenzialità di illustrator per quanto riguarda allineare oggetti su oggetti bloccati sarebbe fantastico e performante.
    Nell'ambito del mio lavoro usiamo fustelle predefinite.
    l'idea sarebbe poter selezionare l'oggetto bloccato sulla tavola disegno o livello template e agganciate/allineare all'oggetto un altro oggetto.
    Questo permetterebbe un allineamento veloce e sicuro.
    Provo a spiegarlo con l'esempio.

    L'ideale sarebbe inserire nel pannello "allinea oggetti"
    lo strumento allinea a centro

    Questo permetterebbe la possibilità con un solo click l'allineamento all'oggetto bloccato

    spero di essermi spiegato.

    in molti vi ringrazieranno.

  17. Name Change Improvement

    Dear Adobe, upon using the software for some years now I have got the impression of the software being related to illness, us being ill and traitor (although spelt a bit differently). So it's like 'ill' 'us' 'trator'.

    I know it might sound quite out there but there could be some reasoning to it. I for one have experienced some illness since using it (not to say the program is at fault) and an impression gets made and then I'm more cautious to use the program. The words 'ill us trator' come to mind many times and sometimes in this…

  18. MAJOR PROBLEMS!! Cache/Scratch NOT assigning to my selected Drives

    No matter how many times I un-install and re-install Illustrator, the program WILL NOT ACCEPT when I select a destination to my specific and dedicated Cache/Scratch SSD. I have a permanent studio setup with the latest MacBook Pro 64GB of RAM.. Everything was custom built the best it could be in April of 2020. The second I open Adobe Illustrator, my Available RAM goes from around 55GB to 124MB?!!!!!!! I know it's a RAM heavy program but that is insanity. Nothing is that heavy or works like that. Its forcing a notice to pop up from my Mac saying that…

  19. Auto back up does not work and it should. Everything is set correctly and I use Jing - however it's set as once an hour for a back up

    File back up for crashes needs to work as per the settings. If it set to back up every 2 mins - then where are the files? They don't seem to exist - not like In Design where my last file is brought back.

  20. Make the GPU renderer realize when it is grinding to a halt and turn itself off automatically.

    The GPU renderer is great. If you're on a machine with a hefty GPU. If you're not throwing a bunch of bitmaps and/or bitmap effects at it. If you're not working with a lot of overlaid transparency.

    If one or more of these is false, it starts slowing down the preview rendering. And not by microseconds. I have files that render the preview a little sluggishly, but still usably, with the CPU renderer, and take minutes to update with the GPU renderer.

    I myself have permanently turned off the GPU renderer, as I regularly fail all three of these ifs…
