  3. 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…

  4. 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.

  5. 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…

  6. 自動選択のウィンドウの許容値を最終使用した数値で固定してほしい。

    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.

  8. 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.

  9. Artboard glitch when undo and redo

    When I use the hot keys to undo and redo (Ctr+Z ; Ctrl+Shift+Z) more than once at a time, the entire artboard freezes. When I open the file again, all of my work is gone.

  10. Honestly I would rather an entire year go by with now new features if

    Honestly, I would rather an entire year go by with no new features. Instead, I would rather all of Adobe's efforts go into making the applications run faster. I am running a brand new, completely decked out MacBook pro, and am doing some UX design in illustrator. It is getting really frustrating when I try to nudge an item with the left arrow button and have to wait a couple seconds for it to actually happen.

  12. Creative Cloud is not syncing

    Creative Cloud files are constantly syncing in Illustrator. They don't show up online either. However, if I try to stop syncing through the app preferences it just displays error screens. I am on a Mac using High Sierra. log attached.

  15. There is a double layer enabled at the launching screen and New File screen

    Upon opening the 2018 CC apps the welcome/launch and the New File screens have 2 layers attached and thus makes it hard to select the file or action that I want.

  16. Converting variable fonts and color fonts when saving

    Periodic saving is a natural part of design work. Now when I periodically save I get to watch the 'wait bar' slowly slide by while it converts variable fonts and color fonts to objects. I DON'T even have any of those on my computer.


    1. Illustrator 22.0.1

    2. See above

    3. Shouldn't have to wait to convert something that doesn't need converting.

    4. See above.

    5. I don't have a file to upload. It happens on all files.

  17. Go back to old Align to Pixel check box

    I wish Illustrator would go back to having a check box for align to pixel. That way I could see just by clicking on an object or objects that it is aligned. Now, in Illustrator CC 2017, I have to select every object seperately and press the new button on the top right, in order to get the message that it is aligned.

  18. Illustrator - patch so CS6 version to run in High Sierra

    Many of those of us running CS6 on a MAC cannot afford to move into CC when CS6 ideally suits our needs. Surely your engineers could make a patch.

    Declined  ·  Ashutosh Chaturvedi responded

    releases of Illustrator CC (and earlier) were not designed, nor supported to run on macOS 10.13 (High Sierra). For more information, see System requirements.

  19. Designers are being asked to design for new end user media

    Creating ways to take my vector to 3D, for 3D printing, CNC plasma cutting, and new ways that are being asked for designers and artist to file share and work better together. Exporting my work for auto cad, and 3D software, plotters etc and simplify the paths. There is 2D and there is 3D cad. But as an artist I want to be able to take what I have done in Illustrator and evolve my work and output options to and material to the next level. CorelDraw was just a play toy program. But it looks like they have got…

  20. 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!
