AI 2020 slow
I am working on a 2017 iMac pro with an 18 core Intel Xeon W processor, 128 GB of 2666 MHz DDR4 memory and a Radeon Pro Vega 64 GPU (16 GB memory). I just (November 5, 2019) updated to AI 2020 and everything is significantly slower than the last version of AI 2019 (yes, GPU enhancement settings are on). I purchased AI CS because it had the GPU enhancement and it was 64-bit allowing me to work with the rather large vector images produced during my data analysis from spacecraft. However, this slow down is like going back to AI CS 5. What changed/went wrong in the new AI 2020 that caused such a drastic change in performance? AI 2019 was fast and great but something broke in 2020 making everything (saving, dynamic manipulations, etc.) much slower.
I thought it was just me. Very discouraging that there is no answer here. The program ran better on my 2011 imac with 32M than my 2020imac with 64M. something is wrong...
WTF, What wrong with the program ?
overprint & other adjustment feel so lagging !
i work in intel core i5 (2.8 GHz), 8GB Ram, 4GB GPU with ssd memory for system
I have wasted hours and hours, staring at a spinning beach ball and cursing. Not happy Jan
Goodness!! All these complaints and no response from Adobe???? Really?! I'm having the same issue and glad I'm not alone, but reading all the comments here without any response from Adobe while we keep on paying the subscription every month, geez!
I too am having issues and glad it isn’t just me. I have an imported vector file... and every time I seem to do anything, I get the beach ball. It is ridiculous. I can’t seem to change the issue. Saving sometimes helps it, but then I do a few things and it happens again. But it can get so bad, that just zooming causes this. I noticed, however, that it does not happen in outline view. So I am wondering if something is up with the preview rendering, that might be slowing things down. I was looking for some kind of update, but there is none at the time of this writing. This has nothing to do with my Mac.

Im facing problem with file packaging on illustrator 2020. It takes more than 15mins to package a file or totally freezing. Im running this on a new imac (retina 5k, 27inch 2019), OS catalina.
I put the same file to package on my macbook pro 15-inch, 2017, OS High Sierra, the file package completed in less than 1 minute. I even had set both the ai to matching system handlings settings but still the same. I am unsure how to resolve this. I can't be always switching systems just to package a file..? Or is it a setting that im not aware of that i had to set...
Please give thumbs up on this video below which I've made to show slow performance and optimization on all macs: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HBO0pH_ee3A&feature=youtu.be Also leave a comment which model of mac you are using and have the same issue.

This what happens when a software company becomes a subscription company. They already have your money, so what do they care about. They either bought all their competition or put them out of business with a better product and now they can just put out **** and ignore us.

No official communication or response about this?
We're tired of working like this, but we're paying for the service.
Seriously, no response?

I have used AI since 1988 and I have never experienced the latency that is occurring in the CC 2020 version!
I am using a 16" MacBook Pro w/ 2.6 6core i7, 16 GB DDR4 and an AMD Raedon Pro w/4GB.
Ugh. What is the deal Adobe?
To add insult to injury, I am a college professor with 75 students experiencing the same problem.
Facing the same issue. Working wit AI 2020, 32 GB RAM, saving a DIN A5 File with 300 dpi takes up to 3 min!! :-((( That is really annoying.
Yeah this software has been impossible to work with. Does anyone have recommendations on different vector software? I am thinking to switching completely to Affinity Designer and Procreate for my creative tools.
Not stoked everyone else is having these issues however it is reassuring to know it's not just me. It is @‽*&ing frustrating. On the bright side at least everything else on our rock is rolling on quite nicely... oh.
Here is the video what I have discouvered. If you want to elimiante the delay/latency when resizignvector shape you have to catch two vector on the same time or convert shape to compound path hehe check the video: https://youtu.be/HBO0pH_ee3A
Adobe maybe you will quicker find the solution for this behavior to fix it... its hard to deisgn the logos :/

Stupid update.. the package function totally didnt work at all.
Yes I agree in 100% on my iMac 5k 2019 i9, Pro Vega 48, 16GB RAM, 1TB SSD, Illustrator is sluggish, have latency when resizing vector objects, moving canvas is really laggy and uncomfortable to work. The same feeling was on Mojave and on Catalina. Now I'm on Catalina because overall experinece with OS is better than Mojave.
same here, regret to update.
"Same here. Saving takes forever. Not a fan of this new version at all."
This. So much this. How is it sooooo slow saving things? So much slower.
Same here. Saving takes forever. Not a fan of this new version at all.
