  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 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.

  3. 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?

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  10. 境界線を隠すコマンドについて

    境界線を隠すコマンドを以前の仕様に戻してほしいです。
    せっかく境界線を隠すコマンドを使用しているのに、複数オブジェクトを選択するとはじめに選択したオブジェクトの境界が現れます。
    また、テキストの一部文章を選択した際も選択範囲が強調され、選択部分のみのカラー変更をする際に変更がリアルタイムに確認できません。

  11. Lock Layer/Object That Stays Locked as a PDF

    I have a flyer with text and graphics to send out to end-users. I want them to be able to edit the text in Acrobat but not touch the logo and graphics. I have tried to lock the object/layer but Acrobat ignores my wishes and makes everything editable in the pdf.

  12. Fix Illustrator quitting 'unexpectedly' 10 times a day.

    Illustrator is only getting more buggy. Will start looking for other programs soon. Fix what you have, quit adding more problems. I want to be a graphic designer, not a software technician. Unexpectedly quits. Unexpectedly quits. Unexpectedly quits. Then I have to do your work to troubleshoot. What am I paying for? A buggy program that quits all the time and then I have to spend valuable time solving your problem. Seems to me with it quitting all the time, I shouldn't have to pay such a high premium for unreliable performance.

  13. 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…

  14. Fix synch with Google Drive

    Fix the software to be able to save files to Google Drive. Currently if I save over an existing file hosted on Google Drive the new version does not save (if I quit the software, then try and open the file, only the original save/creation file loads, not the most recent version, which results in the loss of work).

  15. Slow opening of the first document!!!

    I don't know if it happens to others, an Illustrator on a Windows machine "I would say performing, quite a lot" but this problem happens to me I think at least from the CC2018 / 2019/2020 version.

    I start the software, open a new empty document, or open an existing document (even of small, insignificant dimensions) the document takes a long time to open (it is not immediate).
    If I open a second document it opens in the right time, then it works as it should.
    The same thing happens if I close Illustrator and restart it.

    But before it…

  18. Update links manually

    Illustrator is constantly reading linked files, checking for changes. This is normally not a problem, but when the network is slow for any reason (like if you're working remotely over VPN) AI becomes unusable. Simple text changes become an ordeal as every time you switch tools or click anywhere, you have to wait for a minute or two as the links do... whatever they're doing. A simple panel-level option to turn off automatic link updates would make working remotely (which some say is the way of the future) much less painful.

  20. AMD and new CPUS/GPUS realy bad with illustrator

    AMD and new CPUS/GPUS realy bad with illustrator
    New CPUS/GPUS realy bad performance with illustrator.

    Hello Adobe, i recently bought new computers for our company becouse people were complaining about Illustrator beeing slow.

    These are the new computers:
    -AMD 3900x + RTX 2080 + 64GB 3600Mhz ram + win10 1903
    -AMD 3700x + 5700XT + 32GB 3200Mhz ram + win10 1903

    After trying out Illustrator on these systems i thought to myself.......why do we even use Illustrator?

    How come a 3000 euro computer runs slow with overprint ON with simple squares drawn on the art board???

    I want Adobe to…
