  1. Illustrator freezes with creating new document

    A few times when I opened the new Illustrator 2019 on Mac, Mojave, it freezes and is still buggy after the latest update. When I open Illustrator after quitting the application, or even the first time after restart, it literally gets stuck on either the home screen, but also when I choose "new file" from the home screen's quick create section. A new file will open, but I can't do anything. The Interface freezes and I have to "force quit" Illustrator.

  2. 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!

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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…

  8. 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…

  9. I would really like a drop down menu to pick which graphics card I want to use

    I would really like to be able to pick which graphics card I want to use in a drop down instead of illustrator automatically picking. Even though my 1080ti is the primary in my bios, illustrator insists on using the 780ti and I have no way of changing it without disabling my 780 all together. There needs to be a simpler way to change this

  10. Contextually Aware Tool Menus

    This could also go in User Interface, but basically if you've ever used Sketch App you know how handy and time-saving contextual tool menus are. When you are using a particular tool, the menus/palettes should update on the fly so that you don't have to continually collapse and expand palettes/menus to access stuff you can do with that tool.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. Please add support for AMD Radeon Pro 5700

    I have a new iMac 27" 2020 and just learned, to my disappointment, that my graphics card is not supported. I have an AMD Radeon Pro 5700, I think the standard for the new iMac is a Radeon Pro 5500 XT (which is also not supported).
    This causes Illustrator to crash at least once or twice a day with a GPU Error report and it then automatically deactivates GPU Performance, which makes Illustrator super slow and laggy.
    I know the iMac 2020 is very new, but since more people will be getting it over time it seems reasonable to support…

  14. 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?

  17. Presentation Mode only for the selected monitor

    Hi, Illustrator Team.

    Working on several monitors (also iPad in "Sidecar" mode) be able to display a separate window with "clean preview of graphics in a different scale than the editing window.
    Example of use:
    1. I open the graphic
    2. Menu> New Widow
    3. I move the new window to the second screen
    4. On this screen> in the illustrator> View / Presentation Mode menu

    Effect:
    Presentation Mode only works on the selected monitor.

    This mode of operation can also be perfectly used in working with the client during corrections with the possibility of sending the client's image via…

  18. 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

  19. 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…
