  2. Creating Halftones Quality Has Decreased

    I am beyond frustrated with what used to be a smooth, simple rendering process for creating halftones. I do what most do: create the shape with a black to white gradient > create setting under Color Halftone > Expand Appearance > Image Trace > Expand Appearance (again). Boom, done.

    Howevre, please refer to my image below. From left to right, this is what is happening now with the current software. First on the left is the gradient shape. Next is the effect if you apply the color halftone. So far no issues. But as soon as you apply Image Trace,…

  3. Move tool lags and I can't move my layers.

    I don't have any ideas necessarily. Just want the features provided to work normally. I can't even use my move tool without the program lagging. Also, it's nearly impossible to organize my layers because Illustrator doesn't allow me to move them. It makes tasks that should take 1 second to do take 5 mins. Which makes it impossible to get anything done.

  4. Update (v24,2) crashes Illustrator consistently, enough memory (RAM) and slow down when using eraser tool

    I'm working on Windows 10 last build 2004

  5. Converting Text to path extremely slow

    Converting Text to Path ist extremely slow. I have a Job, where 1000 textboxes (each a 5 digit number) has to be converted to paths. On my iMac (3,7 GHz 6-Core i5) this task takes 16 minutes. I tried the same with 16 years old Freehand MX on a 11 years old MacPro 2 x 2,8 GHz Quad Core and it took 13 SECONDS! As there was never an Intel-Version of Freehand it runs under Rosetta what lets the Result in Illustrator look even poorer... And as I have to repeat this task 100 times I would end up in…

  7. Switching project tabs fails to update to selected project

    In recent updates, including the June 2020 Illustrator update, tabs fail to switch projects, displaying only the current project for up to 15 seconds before slowly refreshing and switching to the selected open project tab. This happens several times a day and drastically effects productivity. (macOS Catalina 10.15.5, Macbook Pro 16 2019)

  8. 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.

  10. 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…

    MacBook Pro OS Catalina 10.15.4
    2.3 GHz 8-Core Intel Core i9
    16 GB 2400 MHz DDR4
    Radeon Pro 560X 4 GB
    Intel UHD Graphics 630 1536 MB

    Using a Wacom Intuos M running drivers v. 6.3.39-1

    Illustrator 24.1.3

    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…

  12. 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.

  13. IllustratorCC 2020 24.3.1 version, everything is working very slow and laggy

    Yesterday, I got automated update to Illustrator 2020 24.3.1 version, since then
    everything is working very slow and I am getting lags in all the thing I select and click in the software.(selecting, filling, moving objects) Without selection, the cursor drags around the page area and goes outside the artboard area even if I move the mouse without clicking with the mouse.

  16. 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.

  18. Illustrator crashes when using certain tools, when macbook goes to sleep, when left on too long, when selecting items (CMD+A)

    Going mad trying to fix this bizzare problem on my new 2019 Macbook pro.


    • Latest version of illustrator (24.1.2)

    -Mac OS Catalina 10.15.4, 2.3 GHz 8-Core Intel Core i9, 32 GB 2667 MHz DDR4, MD Radeon Pro 5500M 8 GB
    Intel UHD Graphics 630 1536 MB

    Since maybe last month, illustrator has been crashing more and more frequently, and at the strangest of times. I have everything almost exactly the same on my 2018 Macbook Pro and Illustrator is totally fine on that one. I can't quite figure out what is going wrong with this laptop.

    For instance:

    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.

  20. Illustrator 2019, 2020 keeps crashing on a new MacBook Pro, Catalina OS10.15.4. Always crashes after computer sleep

    I just got a new MacBook Pro to replace an 11 YO iMac on which I was using Illustrator CS6. I had to switch to CC Illustrator. It crashes (about 8 times today alone)--almost always if I put computer to sleep with Illustrator open, but sometimes during work
