  1. Full colour image shut down to a simple line drawing

    Illustrator shutdown unexpectedly. When it recovered, my drawing was fine for a moment, then reduced all the work I had done into a simple line drawing. What is going on? I don't see the image I had spent many hours developing.

  2. Performance on MacOS

    Currently MacOS version still slow, zooming slow , it's memory hog. it need to use Apple Metal GPU API. Illustrator is heavy. They need to improve the performance. Listen to the users.

    like MacBook Air it runs slow and laggy.

  4. Still not able to paste (CMD + V) text when creating a new folder in Save as dialog box in Ai 2020

    In the latest update the copy and paste option is fixed when trying to do it in the save as dialog box. But if I try to create a new folder with the save as dialog box open I still cannot cmd+v to paste text into the field.

  5. Gradient tool Illustrator 24 high sierra

    The Gradient tool does not work well in Illustrator 24.0.3 using high sierra 10.13.3.
    When changing anything with the annotator (color stops, angle, etc) illustartor will hang for several seconds, and nothing can be selected, so I have to wait for it to resume. Often times the gradient panel will blink continuously during this time, it's weird. It's like it's having a spasm. Everything with the gradient works fine in 22.1, so I've been using the older program when i have to use a lot of gradients. This is annoying though, to constantly switch between programs. Why would you, yet…

  6. 2019 Mac Pro with AMD Pro VEGA II Duo Graphics

    This has been something I've brought up a couple times to Adobe and they know it's a problem but it seems like the resolution of this has been slow going.

    These newer Mac Pro graphics cards don't seem to be supported with the newest version of Adobe Illustrator.

    It's a problem because Adobe Illustrator runs extremely slow when it says that there isn't a compatible GPU. Can anything be done to add these graphics cards to the "approved" list?

    MacOS Catalina 10.15.5
    2019 Mac Pro - MacPro7,1
    28-Core Intel Xeon W
    768 GB RAM
    2X AMD Radeon Pro Vega II…

  7. Illustrator and InDesign crashing multiple times a day

    I have a weird crash — many but not all times I step away from my Mac (2020 MacBook Pro 16" running Catalina; 64GB RAM, AMD Radeon Pro 5500M 8 GB; Intel UHD Graphics 630 1536 MB), Illustrator goes down (and often, InDesign as well). I'll come back and wake up the machine and am greeted with system crash messages. The crash message seems to be related to Dispatch queue. Is it possible this is tied to sleep functionality, or perhaps a GPU issue? Would love to resolve this.

  8. Measuring/positioning elements improperly includes shadow/effects

    It used to be that when you selected an object/element with a drop-shadow (or other effect), the measurements did NOT include the drop-shadow. HOWEVER, now they do and it's causing me lose-my-mind!!! To measure and or position ANYTHING correctly, you have to first turn-off the shadow (in the Appearance panel) then position/measure and THEN turn-on the drop-shadow!!! Seriously, this is an enormous time-waster. PLEASE, allow us to turn off the function where everything is measured-and-positioned by it's drop-shadow. PLEASE

  9. 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.

  10. 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…

  11. Zooming Delay

    After updating I'm getting a delay when I zoom in or out, it doesn't react until I perform another action like panning.

  12. Illustrator (version 24.1.2) crashes every time I use the crop tool.

    I have been using the crop tool without an issue over the last year and a half, right up until yesterday. Today my illustrator refuses to work the second i click on the crop tool, and instantly crashes. I tried reinstalling it, but it hasn't improved.

  14. Cannot view New Files


    • Using MacOSX 10.15.5 (19F101), Newest version of Illustrator CC

    • Open existing file file, create new file

    • EXPECTED: A new file gets created and I can see the artboard and work within the file

    • ACTUAL: A new tab opens with "Untitled" but cannot toggle to the new tab, and when attempting to break the new document out of tabs and input any objects (text, shapes, lines, or paste) into the "New" document, it creates/pastes into the first document opened, not the New one I created. Cannot manipulate any "New" document in any capacity with Illustrator, Photoshop, or Indesign (only ones I've…

    16 GB 2400 MHz DDR4

    When using computer's trackpad or drawing tablet I have encountered problems that render the program unresponsive.

    As I re-order layers in the layers panel and I when move simple shapes or groups of shapes across the artboard, the action is not performed. When hovering the cursor anywhere in the interface I see a circle with a strike through it, program is essentially…

  16. Constant Random Crashing

    Adobe Illustrator CC 2020; A coworker and I are coming across the same issue where our Illustrator is consistently crashing almost every hour or so throughout the day, seemingly at random. It will happen when trying to select/move an object, when trying to save, when clicking on another window, when clicking on a dropdown, and even when the machine is just sitting here doing nothing on my lunch breaks, it's not a question of if it will crash, it's when.

    Sitting behind us is another co-worker who has yet to have this issue happen on his machine, we're all on…

  17. 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.

  20. 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.
