  3. 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…

  4. 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.

  5. Cannot open .ai files after update. Windows 10

    After new October update for Illustrator CC 2019, I can no longer open .ai files? I get the 'how to you want to open this file?' window appear.

    If I right click .ai file > properties > opens with, change. and select the correct Illustrator it still does not change!

  6. 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…

  7. 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!

  8. 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.

  10. Ability to Designate Target Folder for Scratch Disk

    At the moment, the user can only specify a target drive which provides limited control. I have a specific 'cache' folder on one of my drives which I use for other programs and I'd like to be able to point Illustrator to this folder as well. If applications don't let the user designate a specific folder, you end up with dozens of cache folders springing up all over the place. In today's data heavy world, keeping things organised is more crucial than ever.

  11. File operations

    I just opened 6 50kb PDF files and it took 1 minute 50 seconds. Why is it so slow? It has been this slow for a long time and I am sick of it. It makes me wonder why I should pay for this.

    AI needs to be able to keep up with AE and CA, when I make a puppet for those apps in AI, AI becomes overwhelmed and hopelessly slow. It needs to be much more powerful so my workflow is reasonable. Also if I have to rasterize everything to help these apps handle the burden, there should be an undo button for rasterized bits for editing purposes. But there's a huge…

  15. bug: Screen turns black after choosing width tool

    In between bugs I still try to make something in Illustrator, and now this happened:


    1. I hit Shift + W on the keyboard to select the width tool.

    2. Instead of the width tool cursor, the cursor became a black rectangle.

    3. I noticed both the Selection tool and width tool were selected in the tools window.

    4. I dicided to click on an Anchor anyway, and the screen turned black. The video signal went off, monitor went on standby. The HDD/SSD light on the PC was flashing nonstop. PC did not respond to anyting (I think, but I could not see because…

  16. selective display of graphic elements

    When working with large files for large prints, we often run with slow-down issues due to having many vectorized images and transparency modes. Normally one knows who is the culprit and it would be nice to be able to select some sort of 'low-res' representation of the heavy graphics so it does not slow down the machine so much.

  17. Enchanced anti-aliasing

    Illustrator's anti-aliasing is very dirty and very-very dark. I personally work mostly on icons in Illustrator and the reason I avoid the application for say simple UI is that the result will be dirty. If I import my illustration from AI to Photoshop or Adobe XD - the whole layout will become much cleaner, lighter on preview and on export from there.

    Recently I've encountered a situation when my colleague had a small circle, and for this circle, the stroke's been defined as black and the fill was transparent. In Illustrator it looked like the circle hadn't a hole in…

    I would like to be able to use the program without being signed in, I have a slow connection and the cc activities make other internet traffic impossible at times when I am using illustrator.

  20. My Huion 1610 pro tablet has small bugs in illustrator.

    This doesnt happen in other applications adobe or otherwise. The pen is very jittery in illustrator and its near impossible to get a straight line at times. Also, the mapped keyboard shortcuts dont work correctly. As far as I can tell this is an illustrator issue (I could be wrong) as they seem to port over nicely all other applications.
