    There are many instances mentioned on the web of illustrator file suddenly crashing and a text import options pop up appearing when you try to reopen. The file is then blank. It doesn't matter how many times you have saved it. There is nothing in layers. Please fix

  2. GPU performance

    GPU performance in iMac 27" 5k with AMD Radeon R9 M380 2 GB
    turns colors to a pale tone.

    Using CPU preview turns back the vivid colors but it slows down the performance.

    Any clue how to fix this?

    I'm using the latest update of Mojave and Illustrator v. 23.0.1

  3. When zooming in in 23.0.3 what I am zooming in on disappears and takes several seconds to load. Frustrating & time wasting.

    When zooming in in 23.0.3 what I am zooming in on disappears and takes several seconds to load. It worked fine in the previous version. It also is taking a very long time to open files that used to open quickly.

  4. iCloud Compatibility

    I was just at Apple the other day because my Macbook Pro (2018, running Mojave) kept crashing when I would open it from sleeping. They told me something in the Adobe App Suite was causing this to happen. So I uninstalled apps, then reinstalled them and it fixed the crashing upon waking issue.

    However, when I tried to use Illustrator, it was very buggy, glitchy, would freeze up. I contacted support and they told me the only solution is to sign out of iCloud to use Illustrator. I don't even have any Adobe related files in my iCloud, but it…

  7. Improve thumbnail functionality and allow them to be turned off in Pattern Maker Window

    While layers, groups, and paths offer you the ability to shut off thumbnails, Pattern Maker does not. As it is a live preview of what you're currently editing, it can slow things down quite drastically, even to select 1 item in the swatch with complex patterns. Often I have to shutoff layer thumbnails since they rerender the thumb for every revision, and would like the same functionality for Pattern Maker. Swatch thumbnails don't seem to be an issue and it would appear they only update once the changes are saved. Since there are many options for bricking, and tiling, it's…

  8. Tool for understanding storage size (bytes in file/memory) of single object or group of ojbects in document

    Often Illustrator file size have very large size. And Illustrator interface at now provide no ways for understand, which objects englarge file size, and how to reduce the size.

    Main question is for embedded objects (pixel images) - before embedding we can see file size, but after embedding - fields in panel becomes empty! Why?

    So, please fix, at first, showing info about embedded images in Links panel, and next - create some tool for review size of currently selected group of objects.

  9. Area type contraction

    Ability to make the boundry of the are text to be resized to the amount of text in that box with a click, maybe on the top bar. We never make the text are box to the exact amount of text, especially in copy and paste which means it has to be resized manually EVERY time. A button to make is to contract will be helpful.

  10. Illustrator Lag

    Illustrator super slow and laggy even in outline view on Mac. Started after last two updates. Have restarted both Illustrator and mac. Takes forever to save and move objects, have to click multiple times for it to actually select the object.

  11. Please create more intelligent image link retention, allowing us to move projects without it delinking

    Document links have always been very fragile, moving a project to a new drive, even with all of it's links will de-link them making it a pain to archive work and revisit that work. Please create more intelligent and robust image linking system.

  13. Freezing

    The image does not change. I go to a new tab with a different file and the same image is showing.
    I go to use the Align tab and STILL showing the Layers tab. I have to completely quit illustrator. This has been happening since the update. This is costing me production time. I have to quit illustrator and reopen at least 10 times a day.

  14. Magnetism of line contour to avoid the vectorization

    Magnetism of line contour to avoid the vectorization in order to obtain the shape of the contour to magnetize it and to lose basic line.

    I think especially when I have to create fonts.

    I show you what it might look like !

  15. Annoying tipp on Adobe-Color Themes Panel

    This annoying tipp on the Adobe-Color Themes Panel destroys the workflow. Everytime you hover over a color a message appears and stays there for like 2 seconds and makes you wait to select your color. please give this tipp another position.

  17. Works only on the selected path

    Hi!
    This is an old and irritating problem when you pray with Illustrator. Over the years, it's been a lot of annoying hours of work. Adobe Team, thank you for "great new news ...", but are not you a bit ashamed for such "simple" things?

    Regards!

  18. Make Layer / Link Thumbnails a Workspace / Application-Level Preference

    I switch off all Layer, Link and Transparency thumbnails to improve viewing performance in complex documents, but I have to do this for EVERY customer file opened.

    With the option to have my saved Workspace over-ride the viewing preference saved in each document, all files would open to the user's preferred setup.

  19. Error When Selecting Graphic Styles Palette

    Recently updated to Illustrator CC19 (version 23.0.1) Was altering the workspace and when I selected the Graphic Styles palette I get the error message "There is not enough memory available to process the appearance of an object error" Didn't even have an object selected or anything, after the error message all options are greyed out and I can't select anything on the artboard. Tried restarting, saving a new file, deleting all the graphic styles I had installed but the error still persists. This is happening for both old and brand new files.

    I uninstalled Illustrator and reinstalled and it seemed…

  20. Acceso directo a objetos/texto con rapida configuracion (ejercitos age of empires)

    hola! les escribo para dar una breve sugerencia la cual quizás ya fue propuesta por otra persona impaciente igual que yo... Si alguna vez jugaron al age of empires y fueron atacados podrán haberse dado cuenta que si configuraron sus ejércitos con anterioridad podrán defenderse mejor o incluso realizar un ataque mas efectivo. Esto se podría hacer seleccionando primero el objeto/texto y después apretando (control) mas un numero. De esta manera se podría hacer cambios de las distintas profundidades de diseño mas rápido, sin tener que mover todo para los costados si se quisiese cambiar algo el z-index 1.
    Espero…
