  3. Basic functions not working in Illustrator. Shapes don't have the "smart circles" to resize objects. Working in current version on CC

    All of a sudden with a current Mac upgrade Illustrator has gone south. Drawing shapes now doesn't allow for smart reshaping, can't select paths, some files just won't allow ANY changes at all. Working on current CC version, 2018

  4. Start-up speed

    Illustrator takes 7 seconds to launch on an M.2 SSD - as I have to relaunch the application multiple times during the day to improve performance and reset a number of bugs, this is not really a speedy enough launch time and it needs improving.

  5. Zoom issue

    When zooming in from 3200% to 6400% or more, this line starts acting weird. The stroke should not be outside of the path line, but it seems like it's having a rendering issue or something. Seems like it might be a problem only when previewing on CPU. I switched to GPU preview and it's fine, but if I switch back it looks like the attachment

  6. Slow on iMac

    I have just bought a new iMac Retina 5K 27-inch (2017) with i5 3,4 processor, 16 gb of Ram, Raedon Pro 570 with 4 GB.

    Illustrator is very very slow... the files I have are simple vector only with no effects and simple paths. The files are local.

    I have a low spec 5 year old pc laptop, the files run better on that...
    Please help!

  7. Illustrator 2018 crashes constantly..

    Hey there, fellow Illustrator-People,

    since yesterday I'm running into an issue that stops me from making any progress on the project I'm currently working on, without any signs of a logical cause here.

    I was trying to open up a few recent files I worked on but Illustrator just straight up closes, without any crash pop-up or illustrator re-opening any of the files when getting started again. It's possible to open up illustrator via the app icon, but not via the files I want to edit. I then checked if other files can be opened, and to my surprise, some…

  8. Flickering cursor icon and Unresponsiveness (High Sierra 10.13.4)

    Got a new Mac running 10.13.4, installed adobe CC completely fresh. Illustrator is very slow, often comes to a complete stall / irresponsive, and I have to constantly restart the application. And even after the restart, it is still very slow. I turned off everything, including the GPU performance and other things it didn't help at all. The cursor flickers for several tools. It has become very unuseable and drag the time I normally would be able to finish a project by 2x at least.

    Can you please check if Dictation is on your MAC. We are aware of an issue where Dictation software was interfering.
    If this does not work, please get in touch with us at any of the other support channels – https://helpx.adobe.com/support.html . Since this is not a generic issue that we can reproduce at our end, we will need someone to look into your machine to figure out what is going on here.

    Warm Regards,

  11. Line distortion Issue

    I am having this issue while designing in Illustrator. The example attached is only one area that is having this distortion. The smooth lines have little cuts out of them, but when I save it out it seems to be ok. It is very distracting and would like to know if there is a fix for it.

  12. Pixel Loss using Pathfinder (Subtraction)

    Hello,

    I'm noticing when using the pathfinder subtraction feature I'm getting a loss in pixels in the subtracted object. In this instance I have a design that will be printed on a black shirt. I'm subtracting my top black layer from the layers below. I have attached a screen shot for reference. You can see if you compare the subtracted shape to the top black layer there is a loss of line quality. Basically, you cannot get an EXACT subtraction from one shape to another. Even if you use basic shapes you still have a loss of pixels once subtracted.…

  13. Release Layers (sequence)

    When the groups are released into layers I have to specifically deselect any object that I have selected in that layer. If not and I want to simply select the next group or object to continue the same procedure, that layer which I have just released and has an item selected will keep popping open even if I close it specifically. Every time I click on a different object or group in the layers panel that last released one will open up, and in my case it contains a looooot of objects.

    Also, as mentioned before, sometimes it seems not…

  15. Placed .tiff file making vector image disappear

    In my line of work we have "distresses" that we place over the vector image that we've created. The distresses are .tiff files and with the last update have began making the vector image disappear. When printed everything is fine. However most of the time we also have to export as a .png to send our customers a proof and we have to export several times before getting a .png we can use.

  18. Mysterious Points moving

    I have the latest version of Adobe Illustrator. I've lately been creating a character and I was putting the layer on hidden and a thing appeared. It was like I used the direct selection tool and dragged a point across my screen. It happens about every 6-7 times I hit the button and it also happens on a different layer on a different part of the body.

  20. Mac is frozen when moving objects around

    Hi, I'm using Illustrator CC on a Macbook (High Sierra). It very often freezes completely and nothing helps, but hard reset. It's very annoying, as this happens 10-15 times when making a Figure for a publication. It happens when moving simple objects around. I tried to reinstall and to purge the preferences, nothing really helps. Can someone help?
    THanks
