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

  3. Performance and delay on Illustrator 2020&2019 - iMac 5k 2019 with Pro Vega 48

    Here is the video where I compare performance issue with other graphic software and desktop CP with Illustrator 2020 on the iMac 2019. Fps is drop when moving canvas by hand tool and when you want to resize simple vector shape you see on screen and feel some kind of latency, delay (watch carefully the video below). On the video you can see this lag how its behavior on iMac and how its snappy od Pc Dekstop. Performance is the same on Mojave or Catalina. I was handing for 5 days with your customer support and technician support. Still the…

  4. Super slow response since updating to Illustrator 2020

    Illustrator takes a few minutes to respond to switching a layer on and off even when I'm working in 640x480 pixels !!

  5. Crashing every 10 minutes or less

    Hello,

    I am currently doing a piece of art on illustrator and it keeps crashing every 10 minutes or sometimes less. Something that should take me an hour or less is now taking me currently 3 hours and I'm not even half way through because it keeps crashing and it's frustrating that I pay so much for something and I can't even do what I want because it doesn't want to work or allow me to do work. It's even more frustrating having to stop and save every minute or so when this all can be prevented.

    I hope there…

  6. Since updating to the 2020 version of CC, Illustrator seems to freeze up.

    Freezing. Plus, I'm trying to create a dotted stroke with the stroke panel and my stroke always reverts to a solid line.
    I'm running Windows 10 and just updated it today 12/7/19 and no change.

  7. Illustrator fundamentals


    • When panning around in mid full screen view, defect stripes keeps appearing all over the screen. Disappears when zooming one time.

    • Zoom should be zooming to position of mouse, but it zooms "all over the place" when close up.

    • Pathfinder substract creates unnecessary amount of anchor points + gaps. Even with setting 0,001 in Pathfinfer options

    This has been going on for years, and Adobe is informed about these fundamental bugs several times. Time to fix the fundamentals and clean up the bugs.

  8. Create new file dialog box lags

    When I'm working with multiple files, opening and closing, there are times where I copy an object to a new file. I use Command-N, but the dialog box lags and takes several seconds to show up. Is it trying to connect to something online? Why is there lag?

    Hi David,

    i am not able to reproduce the issue at my end. Can you please share the following information:

    1. Which OS you are working on?
    2. What is the version of AI?
    3. Have you stared facing this issue recently?
    4. If you are using some other Adobe application, Is it happening in that application as well?

    Thanks
    Anish

  9. V24.0.1 on PC - Very slow and takes forever to save for a simple file

    This is beyond usable. Trying to save a job and Illustrator is unresponsive and takes approx. 5min to save a simple file.
    Tool use is very sluggish and when changing to the type tool, the program is unusable and greys out becoming unresponsive. Have opened in illustrator diagnostic mode and it just crashes when trying to exit.
    Have turned off save in background and Optimize file open and save times on slow networks all to no avail.

    Trying to exit also takes forever and just greys out.

  10. Can't save. Crashes constantly. Lose Transform controls randomly and have to restart.

    2020 is awful. When it's not crashing, it's telling me it's crashed. Now it refuses to save my work and copying and pasting it's only picking up half what I copy. Awful, awful. I'm on a 2019 Macbook pro.

    Adobe Illustrator CC 2019 is not able to generate PDF-compatible files

    No matter what I do (re-save as a AI, EPS, PDF, check/uncheck 'create PDF compatible file', etc...), if I save as a PDF, the PDF will show up saying "This is an Adobe Illustrator File that was saved without PDF content" etc... Is this a version 2019 bug???

  12. Illustrator input and tools unresponsive when switching between apps

    Illustrator input and tools unresponsive when switching between apps. If you click on the stroke, you can't type in the input. Type highlight is grey, not blue showing that something is keeping the selection from being active.

  13. Update link

    After I updated the 2020 version of the apps, illustrator started to fail. When I modify a photoshop file it takes several minutes to update on illustrator and my computer stops working. It takes like 5 minutes to update the link so i can keep working, before this version the update was automatic.

  15. crashing

    Crashes when opening preferences. Slow overall (and non-responsive) performance on a brand new Mac. 2020 Illustrator is beta garbage and does not run dependably. InDesign is just as bad.

  16. Only one backstep at a time possible

    ai lets me backstep only once or twice bevore stalling. After ca. 2 minutes another backstep is possible. Sometimes several backsteps are possible but it will stall from time to time. If I wait, it will recover, but it's impossible to work in this way.
    Is there a solution to this?
    I'm on a Mac Pro 12core late 2013 and OS X 10.14.6

  18. Watercolor Brush

    3 Second+ Lag when using Basic Watercolor brush.

    This is making some projects nearly unusable on the newest version. I don't know if the performance problems are similar for other brush types. But it brings Illustrator to a crawl on my workstation which should be overkill for running Illustrator.

  19. Preferences reset whenever Illustrator freezes/crashes

    Illustrator freezes or crashes 1 to 2 times a day. I use it for 8 hours a day at work. When it freezes, I have to force quit with Task Manager. I'm using 2020, and I had this exact issue with 2019. However with 2020, whenever it freezes and I force quit, once I open Illustrator again all of my preferences are back to default. These preferences include: custom Keyboard Shortcuts, the workspace, boxes that have been checked (e.g. the Preview box in Envelope Distort).
