  1. Crashing and not recovering when laptop sleeps

    HP ZBook Studio G5
    Intel i7 8th Gen
    Running Windows 10 Pro
    Creative Cloud completely updated, including AI

    Any time I have an open file and leave the laptop for a few min, it seems to crash AI and will not recover any files, so I have to recreate files quite often.

  2. Illustrator Freeze & Crashing

    After updating my Macbook Air to version Mojave version 10.14.6 and Illustrator to version 24.1 I am unable to work in Illustrator for more than 5 minutes before it freezes and my screen turns black. I can not click on any tool either and dropdown boxes and windows disappear.

  4. flickering mouse back again while opening Photoshop and Illustrator

    After it was gone for a while with the newest release the old bugs are back. Would you ever recommend Adobe: No.

    Flickering mouse will begin while Photoshop and Illustrator are opened the same time on OS X Mojave, so annoying. The only program where this happens!
    Great work Adobe, congrats.

  5. AMD and new CPUS/GPUS realy bad with illustrator

    New CPUS/GPUS realy bad performance with illustrator.

    Hello Adobe, i recently bought new computers for our company becouse people were complaining about Illustrator beeing slow.

    These are the new computers:
    -AMD 3900x + RTX 2080 + 64GB 3600Mhz ram + win10 1903
    -AMD 3700x + 5700XT + 32GB 3200Mhz ram + win10 1903

    After trying out Illustrator on these systems i thought to myself.......why do we even use Illustrator?

    How come a 3000 euro computer runs slow with overprint ON with simple squares drawn on the art board???

    I want Adobe to explain to me why a I7 6700 with…

  6. Random crash

    Adobe Illustrator cc 2020 is randomly crashing, even if I'm not using it. It's happening at least a couple times a day. I'm using the last version of Catalina in my mac.

  7. Freezing and crashing constantly - menu gets messed up first

    Illustrator keeps freezing and frequently crashing. This is not a computer issue, it happened on my old computer and is still happening on my new Lenovo thinkpad. It happens the same way every time. First the menu bar gets corrupted (look at top menu photo attached). Then menus won't open. Then it crashes. Sometimes I can save first, but often not. I am losing a ton of work! I just lost a half hours work. I need this fixed. I have update illustrator several times it doesn't fix it. I'm attaching an image with the details of my system, but…

  8. Actions don't work with function keys in Illustrator 2020

    In CS6 the function keys worked fine to invoke actions. In Illustrator CC 2020 the function keys operate as Mac function keys but can't be used to invoke an action. For example, I have Shift + F3 programmed in AI to save a file as .PNG to the current disk. I know the action does what it should because when I double-click it in the Actions menu it works fine. When I press shift+F3, I get the multi-file window, which is the native Mac keyboard function for F3. It's as if the programmers forgot to override the Mac function keys…

  9. too slow and laggy, small edits also end up in not responding or hanging and crashes.

    After the last update (24.0.1) Illustrator is too slow and laggy. Crashes Illustrator consistently with Can't finish previewing, small edits also end up in not responding or hanging and crashes.

  10. Crashes constantly

    Illustrator crashes constantly. Typically, when pasting anything (even a single character) into an existing AI file. We have updated all associated drivers, upgraded video card, re-imaged the OS. Nothing is making this better. After a few strokes, Illustrator will gray out and report "Not Responding."

    Illustrator CC 2018 version 22.0.1
    Windows 10 v1709

  13. Mac OS Wacom brush lag

    UPDATE: I kept researching and found on another support blog to try hiding the rulers and right away my brush quit lagging by at least 85-90% improvement. Actions taken: View > Rulers > Hide Rulers. Weird, but it worked for me. I hope this helps anyone else with this issue. Ideally, we'd like to have this fixed so that rules can stay open, but nice to have a quick fix too.

    ORIGINAL PROBLEM:
    I'm on a MacOS Catalina (most recent Mac upgrade). I'm using a Wacom Tablet (up-to-date drivers) and the subscription version of Adobe Illustrator. My brush is lagging…

  15. Missing Text on Menus?

    I'm working on a 21.5 inch late 2015 image, 2.8 with 8GB using Mojave. I'm not quite sure what steps are happening and if there is a hardware issue on my side, but when I use Illustrator, there is an intermittent bug that seems to happen. Here's how it goes:

    Using Illustrator, usually the pen tool.
    The spinning beach ball pops up.
    The screen freezes for a few seconds.
    When it pops back into play, none of the menus have text. Literally, NONE, even those outside of Illustrator (Chrome, the Apple drop downs to restart/shut down)

    Is it just destroying…

  18. measurement imprecision

    Is anybody else noticing that illustrator's precision is off? It's by extremely minute fractions of an inch, but it is still off...and proving extremely problematic while trying to make technical drawings for a medical device company. Close simply isn't good enough, guys. How can something like the fundamental math behind the program be off? I cannot be any more precise in my methodology, and a drawing that should've taken me 10 minutes has taken me 2+ hours. This NEVER used to be a problem.
    I'm sick of this piece of sh*t program. There are big problems that are just being…

  19. Align to Key Object not selectable unless Tool panel is open

    BUG REPORT: "Align to Key Objects" is (sporadically) not selectable as an align method, unless objects are selected while the Tool Panel is open.

    If this panel is closed during object selection, then the "Align to Key Objects" option is greyed out in both the Toolbar and in the Tool Panel (even after it is expanded/opened). This does not happen on every occasion.

    (Running Illustrator CC 2019 on Mac OS 10.14.2)

  20. Can't blend objects filled with gradient

    For whatever reason, I cannot blend shapes that are filled with a gradient. I've tried everything. This has never been a problem before this 2020 update. I'm ripping my hair out.
