  2. 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.…

  4. AI extremely slow on imac Pro 1.1, can't control UI

    I use AI in the CC 22 version on a new imac Pro 1.1 from Dec 2017. It will always pick up objects and move them, it is almost impossible to control the UI and work with the application. It also doesn't react properly on the click command of the track pad. The same happens when I use a mouse. Both, in bluetooth mode and direct wire mode. The system is macos high Sierra 10.13.3

    Do you have any help you can offer? Thank you.

  6. Consistent repeat crashes

    Consistent repeat crashes. I'm on a MAC High Sierra. I know my Illustrator 21.1 will at least crash around 10am and 3pm EVERYDAY. It goes through phases where it will crash 4 times a day.

    I am merely opening an Illustrator file from my desktop or in a folder on my desktop that is 1mb -5mb most times when this happens. When clicking on the file and waiting for this small file to open and nothing happens I realize that it's locked up.

    I check the task manager and sure enough it's not responding and I have to force quit…

  7. 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.

  9. Surface pro 4, Illustrator and InDes

    I am having problems running Illustrator CC and InDesign CC on my new Surface pro (Intel Core i7-7660U CPU 2,5GHz, 16,0 GB RAM). Usually the programs crashes on startup, and the crash is followed by an option to send a crash report. When trying to send the crash report, the crash report crashes! Only Randomly the programs open, but then it seems like the programs are running on wrong resolution. Have anyone else experienced these issues, and is there any fix?

  10. 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.

  11. Offset pen tool

    When I try to draw with the pen tool the point is a couple points offset from where I click with the cursor. I have the latest version of Illustrator on my MacBook Pro and it just started doing this while I was in the middle of a project. I've tried restarting Illustrator but that didn't fix anything.

  12. Saves pdf as ai, and a lousy update.

    Today as I was trying to save out a pdf Ai would remove the name when changing folders, everytime. Then it saved a pdf with an Ai extension, but will only open as a pdf. Screwing all of my work because it saved the file as an Ai, instead of overwriting my changes. This entire update has been a **** big buggy dis-appointment and appears to have no added value.
    When will software mfg realize that people are tired of updates?

  13. New version randomly and continually changing position of endpoints

    I have a large map I'm working on that's doing a strange thing ever since AI CC's last update (21.1.0).

    After the update, Illustrator seemed to change the "Arrowheads" (circles in the case of this file) position at the end of SOME, but not all, of my lines. As far as I could tell, the unwanted and automatic change was completely random. Worse yet, it seems to be continuing at random, as though AI has developed an AI intended to drive me insane.

    Anyone else experiencing this? (In the sample screenshot, the circles at the ends of the lines representing…

  14. Tiny background pixels in top objecting flickering in and out

    In some of my files pixels that are the color of the immediate background of an object will flicker in and out of the object. Zooming in and out changes the regions of the object that are affected, and sometimes it appears as if the object is fine. However, if you then zoom in, the problem resumes.

  15. Object > Expand = Crash

    I have the most updated version of Illustrator CC - whenever I use the expand tool, illustrator crashes.

    I've reinstalled, restarted my computer - can't seem to figure it out.

  16. Non-persistant Align To bug is back, Constant Crashes, Etc.

    Non-persistant Align To bug is back, Constant Crashes, Etc. And, I had to reset ever preference after upgrading AI. I don't understand. I was given a fix for AI to install, then the update for AI has the same bugs and whatever. Why Does AI crash all the time, now? It's like, oh no, I did something, time for AI to crash. Why don't you all observe the application being used for something besides overlaying circles?

  17. type/color changes having difficulty taking

    v.22.0.1 64-bit on win 10
    never had these issues before today, but basically some changes are selectively not taking, are reverting back to previous. 2 examples:


    1. changed type font from Clyburn to Hummingbird (from Tk), change takes, saved work, then went to move type and reverts to Clyburn. so copied layer with Hummingbird, locked it, hid it, then made change, still switched back. closed/rebooted Illustrator, was back in Clyburn. however, made change and it finally took, however could not change between Hummingbird Regular and Bold.


    2. working with ellipses in a logo in CMYK. placed ellipse with gradient stroke. copied layer,…

  18. illustrator crashes when using surface pen to draw

    as soon as i use Illustrator to draw using my surface pen on my surface 4 pro illustrator crashes. it did this to me in the trail of cc 2018 however i assumed it was because of the trail version. i subscribed to cc 2018 a few days ago to draw and i haven't been able to draw with my tablet. mouse seems to work but as soon as i use a brush with my surface pen it crashes and will not allow me to generate a crash report as it stays gray forcing me to restart my computer.

  19. Left Mouse Button Single Click Acts Like Double Click

    This only seems to happen in Adobe Illustrator CC 2018 and Adobe Bridge. I'll single click on a file to select it and it will open as if it has been double clicked. This happens intermittently. I've checked all the mouse settings and nothing has changed.

  20. Creative Cloud has potential ports leak (Activity Monitor)

    When starting Creative Cloud, and Viewing Activity Monitor in macOS the ports show an normal average number around 600. Yet the Creative Cloud ports don't stop there every 15 seconds they increase by 1-3 on avg. I have had them reach 10,000 and that when it starts causing problems with my MacBook performance. if I let it would just keep climbing endlessly. this need to be addressed asap.
