  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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 !

  6. 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.

  8. 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!

  9. 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.

  10. 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…

  11. 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…

  14. Update is way too advanced

    Every single update should not change the basic fundamental functions of AI.
    I am someone who is learning and having to relearn when just getting the hang of how to use this app comfortably really irks me.
    In addition, i have an uncountable amount of talented peers who use this software and they do not even understand how to work with many of the updates.

    A huge example i can give:
    Why can you not drag a photo to make it smaller or larger anymore?

    Also, why can the user not add FX to fonts and see what it does…

  15. Help with bug fixes

    I am having a ton glitches with Illustrator since going to 2019 CC. When I change the colors of simple shapes they turn transparent and disappear. Zooming and out sometimes makes them reappear but more often than not I have to quit Illustrator completely and reopen. Even then it typically does it again shortly after.

  17. crashed and erased my project file? from two hard drives?

    Just letting you know I just updated AI and it just crashed and the project file I was working on (that I had saved to two separate external hard drives) is nowhere to be found now, it didn't show up in my recent files and now I have searched where it was saved on both hard drives and it is completely gone. Awesome. So I guess my request is that if illustrator crashes make it to where it at least doesn't delete the project completely, and autosave backup would be nice but I'd really rather not have to start projects…

  18. Remove zoom to selection feature

    I find the zoom to selection way of zooming to be awful and disruptive of my workflow; scrubby zoom is much smoother. Even when I uncheck the "zoom to selection" box, the feature does not go away. Please provide a way to enable scrubby zoom!

  19. Objects moving and resizing themselves

    My team is having issues with selected objects moving and resizing themselves when we're not actually moving them (hand not on mouse). We just had a sizing error because of this. Please advise.
