  1. Add a plugin manager on start up

    A simple plugin Manager on start up would be helpful. Maybe hold down the Space bar on Startup that gives you an option to enable or disable, any third party or memory hungry plugins.

  2. Remove "Move" limitation from Transform Each & Transform Effect

    When moving items via "Transform Each", objects are limited to moving 55.555". However, when moving objects with Move (Object - Transform - Move), no such limitation exists (Issue is prevalent in V24.0.1, 23 & CS6)
    The same limit exists for Transform Effect.
    My request is for the removal of this limitation to allow for accurate artwork creation.

    Issue is documented and verified here:

  3. multicore useage

    I'm surprised to see that AI doesn't take advantage of multiple-cores. Can we do something about this? Even viewing in wireframe mode doesn't seem to speed things up by much. Or perhaps AI can take better advantage of the GPU??

  5. Support for Radeon VII (eGPU) in mac OS Catalina

    Allow illustrator GPU performance to support the AMD Radeon VII graphics card in an eGPU enclosure. I use the GPU to accelerate my performance on a larger 5k 32" monitor and it would be really useful if Illustrator could make use of the GPU.

    I have attached my current system info. This request follows from a community support request https://community.adobe.com/t5/Illustrator/Adobe-Illustrator-CC-2019-slow-amp-not-using-eGPU-radeon-VII-in/m-p/10658436#M147405

    Thanks

  6. SLOW

    Running a BRAND NEW iMac Pro purchased this week. Almost $10k.
    Even the simplest things like scrolling the workspace causes a lag.
    This is insanely ridiculous that Adobe has not made their software to make use of new hardware. I read the comment below, where your support team said this is not a generic issue that can be replicated. From googling this issue, it has been a problem for over 2 years on all new machines. That is the definition of generic if it is happening to everyone. It happens on all applications that I use, PS, and LR. From…

  7. GPU continues to randomly turn only white to black (not inverting!)

    an ongoing issue with CC is the random and unprovoked flipping of Black to white on screen. Only the color white does this. This is not a case of color being inverted. It is only white in a file that suddenly turns black and then needs to be closed and reopened to fix.

  8. Bring the "Enhance Thin Lines" On/Off Option Back Again

    You have this option on your 2017 version on GPU Performance Tab. On 2018 and 2019 versions, this is not included and it frustrates me as it shows thicker lines instead of actual line thickness.

  9. Illustrator CC often crash if GPU Performance is enabled on Macbook Pro Touch Bar 2016

    Actually, turn it off will solve the issue, but sluggish zoom in/out.

  10. Ability to Set Scratch Disks on Startup

    Our users need to change their Scratch Disk settings from the default Startup to a different drive in order for Illustrator to work correctly in our environment. This is more problematic now since our Mac Pro's have small SSDs. The fact that users have to launch Illustrator, navigate to preferences, change this setting, and then relaunch Illustrator before the Scratch Disk settings take effect is irritating. Unfortunately, in our environment this setting does not stick, so every time our users log in to a different computer they need to make this change.

    Please add a feature, similar to Photoshop's OPT…

  11. Better performance over networks by automatically copying files locally...

    We store all our files on a network drive. Now I know that illustrator performance improves if I copy the network files locally before opening them in illustrator, but this is a major pain because I have to copy them back afterwards and if there are linked assets involved it becomes too much having to verify that all the links are pointing to the correct location.

    It would be nice if AI had an option to do this copying automatically so that all non-local files that are opened are copied first into a temporary local directory and then saved back…

  12. Alt + Cancel Button will Reset to Default Settings

    Click Alt + Cancel button will Reset settings to their defaults - specifically in "Transform Each" command ,I use this Command on a regular Basis where it has many Fields to be set to their default every time.

  13. 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.

  15. Illustrator 2021 is constantly crashing, resulting in my not being able to use it.

    stop it from crashing. Whatever you did with the 2021 version, reverse it. It's worse than useless. I cannot get any production.

  16. 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?

  18. 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.

    centro oggetto grafica da allineare

  19. 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.

    Alessandro

  20. 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.
