  2. Crash on Quit

    Illustrator crashes on quit 4 out of 5 times on my Mac and has for many months and builds. Crash on quit wouldn't be so bad if Illustrator didn't save so many interface and plugin settings on quit. The main crash indicator is below and full log is attached. Currently running illustrator 24.2.3, macOS Catalina 10.15.6. 2019 16" MacBook Pro Radeon Pro 5500M.

  3. New Update's shape tool take up an extraordinary amount of power.

    The shape builder tool takes 4 minutes to finish deleting shapes (when hit alt to get the minus sign and subtract shapes from a selection). It takes up so much power from my CPU that my task manager says illustrator is taking up 100%. Deleting the inner parts of a font (D, R, P) took 2 hours last night when making a logo. I restarted my computer 8 times, started a new illustrator file 4 times (thinking it was a corrupt file) and eventually just waited out the extrodinary processing times to get my project done. It's really ridiculous.

  5. Copy/Paste No Longer Working

    Upon opening Illustrator, copy/paste feature will work once, then will not work again. Have tried various troubleshooting methods and adjusting settings others have had with similar issues to no avail. This is costing me money. I'm under deadlines.

  8. Duplicate ai files while working

    I have to work remotely from a server at my job. For months now, Illustrator will create these strange duplicates of a file I work on, even if I haven't saved the file. There's no pattern to when these files are made, as I sometimes use a variable import script to btach multiple files at once, but not all files are duplicated. Please refer to the screen capture I includes.

    In that folder, there should only be 2 AI files, man and woman. But without my prompting, it created those duplicates, and they can't be deleted without rebooting your computer…

  10. Stability update made Illustrator very unstable

    I noticed the 27/07/2020 update described itself as addressing stability issues, which I didn't have. Since the update ran, 3 hours ago, I've had three crashes - all when copying text and graphics together. My crash report crashed too.

  11. 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.

  12. Illustrator gets a bit weird when I hold down shift to click and drag an object.

    When I hold down shift to click and drag or when I hold shift+option and drag to copy, the object gets stuck. I have to take my finger off the shift key to move the object in place requiring an extra step to align.

  13. Export as jpeg - saves with incorrect file name.

    I am using windows 10 and 2020 version of illustrator.
    When I export a file as a jpeg the jpeg file name doesn't always match the current file name. Instead illustrator is remembering previous file names and overwriting the jpeg with that name instead of the name of the pdf file I'm exporting from. It sometimes reverts to a file name that's 5 or 6 times back in my history of saved file names. EG if I have a file named File 01.pdf and I have Files 2-6 also saved as pdf files and I've exported them all as jpegs…

  14. Distribute Spacing Stuck on Pixels

    The distribute spacing is set to pixels, but doesn't show any measurement. This took some trial and error to find out it was pixels. Trying to override it by typing in say "2in" only gives you an error sound and doesn't change anything.
    It seems to only show the document units after playing with a few object with the panel open. I've had limited success with changing the document units to something else and then back again.

  18. 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…

  19. Illustrator's Artboard does not update live

    I am on a 2017 MacBook Air running macOS Catalina (10.15.5). My Illustrator version is 24.2.1. I haven't seen anything else about this problem on here. After doing anything such as creating a pen stroke or trying to fit the artboard to the screen, the artboard will not update and will only do so once I have used the zoom tool in some fashion.

  20. 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?

    2019 Mac Pro - MacPro7,1
