  1. Actually Fix Adobe Illustrator

    It sucks how I'll be able to use Adobe Illustrator for a bit on my laptop (MacBook Air 13 inch Retina) then it crashes my entire laptop, it will freeze and my tabs would flicker really bad and at times part of my screen would go black while the other half is glitching, I downloaded the entire Creative Cloud to use for work not to sit around and get frustrated while trouble-shooting all of the problems with this application.

  3. 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).

  4. Rotate axis freezes illustrator

    When trying to rotate an object at a different axis point, the arrow button then freezes and won't allow you to drop the axis point to an another area, leaving illustrator to stop working. Not sure if this is a bug in the recent update.

  6. Ignore Groups and Clipping Masks

    I lost about a Year of My Life double-clicking on objects within a group, inside of clipping masks. A less repetitive and MUCH faster way would be an option to "Ignore Groups and Clipping Masks" (i.e holding some key while clicking).

    The option would temporarily (select-wise) treat grouped and clipped objects as normal objects, allowing direct click on an object through a clipping mask and ignoring groups. An "If you can see it, you can click on it!" approach for instant color and other adjustments.

    This alone would speed up the workflow and, combined with wireframe view, it would be…

  7. Change of pixel dimension

    When you want to change from resolution 800480 to 1024600 there is a slight differeence in pixel dimension to remain circle shaped objects. So idea is that you are able to change pixel dimension and convert some files, instead of drawing new ones. For example-you have a circled object in some .ai file, where you have square pixels. If AI would allow to change pixel shape to rectangular, like 0,14mm height and 0,15mm width, or 0,148mm,..., than it would fasten up things of making same graphic for different screen resolution with tool of pixel dimensions, instead of drawing…

  8. Fix it so that it isn't so laggy and so that keyboard shortcuts work (on a Mac)

    Fix Illustrator so that on a Mac the performance isn't so slow and laggy that I can count to 13 before menus drop down, and I end redoing so many things because the lag caused me to overclock. Keyboard shortcuts don't work either, 99% of the time. Used to be great software, but now it is almost unusable. It's lack of performance ate up at last 65% of my work time. It takes hours now because of lag time to do something that would have taken 30 minutes in vision 2018 and earlier. I have no lag or performance issues…

  10. Illustrator 2020 performance significantly slow/sluggish -

    Sorry, can't recommend upgrade of 2020 to my colleagues. I work for a large Engineering firm and we have powerful computers. We have critical deadlines for Q4-2019 - Upgrading to 2020 will be a big mistake as it will cause delay to our projects and stress to the members .
    Saving files takes too long, copying takes system long to process - pasting is fine. Adding text is ridiculously taking forever and it creates its own textbox size - It feels like going back to AI CS6.

    Suggest to review what you had for AI 2019- this was one of…

  11. In InDesign 2020, the new simplication path features doesn't smooth the path perfectly

    There are 73 points in the three closed path.
    The plugin called VectorFirstAid could clean it smartly to reduce the nodes number.
    See attached AI with the comparison of performance between Illustrator new features and VectorFirstAid Performance

  13. 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…

  14. Illustrator version 23.1 won't launch

    Illustrator version 23.1 will not launch after initial opening upon install. On Windows 10 64 bit. It also will not start in safe mode. I uninstalled that version and went back to 23.0.6 and it seems to works fine.

  15. Linked images opening in Photoshop by accident

    Especially big files (exhibition walls etc.) operate so slowly that it often happens by accident that linked images open in Photoshop - although no double-click on the photo ever happened. I'd like to be able to turn off the image opening by double-click. If I want to edit images, I do this via the links panel.

  16. Hide Grid on Perspective Tool

    The "hide grid" function is so frustrating to select. Can it be larger or the target area around it be bigger?

  17. A number of my panels will not open - e.g.: when I click to expand the character panel, all I get below is a black box.

    Many of my panels still open as they should. However, I'm having this problem with the info, character, paragraph, properties, stroke and align panels. Any help on what could fix it would be greatly appreciated? I've searched on the adobe support community and google and no one else seems to be having this problem. Thanks!

  18. transform again tool glitch

    In Adobe Illustrator, I use the transform again tool a lot during my day to day and seemingly recently, it hasn’t been affecting live or outlined type* when it will affect any other regular object. Has anyone come across this on their own or know how to fix it? It will continue to transform the text if you scale up or down as well repeating moves but when scaling objects to certain sizes using the guides and then replicating the same growth on the text object doesn’t work.

    I’ve tried ungrouping, releasing the compound path, tried intersecting the shapes, the…
