  1. Image Trace Creates a white border after trace

    High fidelity image trace in Illustrator 2019 for Mac will add a white border and round the corners. This doesn't seem to be an issue with the PC version of Illustrator (at least for the white border, it will still round the corners).

  2. Delayed mouse movements when rulers are on

    I have just switched from a PC to a Macbook Pro 15.
    I never experienced any issues on my PC in the last 2 years of work, but since I started to work on the Macbook I noticed that the my mouse/trackpad movements were being delayed (feeling sluggish) when I had rulers on. I later noticed that this issue is present throughout Photoshop and InDesign as well.

    I tried community recommended fixes such as turning off dictation and disabling "Scale Cursor Proportionally", and none of it has worked.

    While I can have smooth mouse movements with rulers off, scrolling/navigating through…

  3. Mouse scrolling

    Mouse wheel scrolling is almost non-responsive.

    Whether I want to scroll up or down, or zoom using the alt key, the mousewheel is almost non-responsive. Only scrolling 1 or 2 frames for every 6-10 mouse wheel scrolls.

    Mouse wheel scroll works fine on Photoshop and Indesign. Only Illustrator presenting this issue

  4. Slow Mouse & shaking Cursor

    Slow Mouse & shaking Cursor on Canvas.
    Please remove this bug which is on illustrator since a long time (perhaps 2014/2015 version or before :/ ). It would be time to give a better UX on it because it's really boring.
    Thx.

    illustrator: v23.0.3

  5. Mobile Adobe Draw open in Desktop App (AI) does not work

    Opening in Adobe Desktop Apps does not work in iOS Adobe Draw. There is the option to save as a PSD in cloud files, but NOT to save as an AI. Highly disappointing for tablet integration.

    Also, two finger gestures are slow and interpret commands poorly.

  6. Huge glitch

    I'm working on a Windows 7 in Illustrator version 23.0.1

    The very first time I opened the program the file had a big cutout in a triangular shape, and clicking anywhere on the document or even just moving the mouse around causes it to glitch further by adding random colours to the document and displacing the objects in the document.

    After the first time this happened I uninstalled and reinstalled the program but that didn't work. I also just updated to the newest version of Illustrator today but that also didn't work.

    Attached are screenshots of the glitches.

  7. Rotate stepper in transform panel shifts anchor point

    1) Mac OS 10.14.4, Illustrator 23.0.3.

    2)
    A - Create a blank document.
    B - Draw a line or any other shape.
    C - Use the Selection Tool to select the shape.
    D - In the Properties>Transform panel, rotate the shape.

    3)
    Expected result: Shape rotates around anchor point (or middle).

    4)
    Actual result: Shape rotates using a swinging arc creating a path similar to the attached.

    Have restarted Illustrator, problem persists.

  9. ILLUSTRATOR IS BROKEN GARBAGE

    First of all this bug reporting website is horendious, and I expect nothing less from Adobe who make products that should put them out of business.
    Right now in Illustrator 2019 I cannot change the size of a font without stroke appearing on the text, if I turn the stroke off, the font shrinks in size again, now I'm here wasting my precious time typing out the stupidest problem imaginable. Another thing, I have absolutely no idea why when i click the type tool to the artboard there is text that appears automatically... is the paradigm of a blinking cursor…

  11. After updating all settings just disappeared

    Dear Adobe. The last month you made update for illustrator twice. And twice after updating ALL, I repeat ALL my setting just disappeared. Neither at the program it self, neither at the computer folders., nowhere. Just gone. All key shortcuts, all swatches, even the essentials! TWICE.

    Feels like i using a pirated version...

  12. Undo in illustrator behaving funny. Please address it.

    Undo function in Illustrator 23.0.2 (64-bit) is behaving funny. It is doing one simple undo of a transformation after 2-3 steps. Sometimes the undo totally gets disabled resulting frustration! Please address. This message is sent from the corporate license of Abobe CC of Danfoss (drives section) Global Team.

  13. Horizontal Lines

    I always get these horizontal lines that show up when I'm scrolling down an illustrator file. They completely cover the screen and then go away if I zoom even a little bit. Figured this was a bug that would get fixed with an update but it has continued ever since I first downloaded the app. It only happens when I click tab to hide the menus and toolbars. Tab will also make them disappear. Assuming this is not normal, anyone else getting this??

  14. app lock up

    23.0.2 updated automaticly. No problem. I run on a Win10 HP Spectre laptop with a USB dock to a second screen. When connected to the dock, all is well. However as soon as I undoc to go to a client, the app locks EVERYTHING. Even CRTL-ATL-DEL won't reboot it. Must hard shutdown to get any other programs back up but again as soon as I open Ill... LOCKUP! Embarassing and frustrating. As soon as I dock again... smooth as glass. Thoughts?

  15. Pathfinder > Crop Crashes

    I'm trying to create a pattern that contains a pattern. Each time I try to crop the pattern using Pathfinder > Crop, Illustrator freezes. If I try to "stop" the process, Illustrator crashes and I have to restart. I saw that someone had reported a similar issue late 2018 and the bug status shows as "completed" with the issue being fixed in 23.0.2. However, I'm running 23.0.2 and I'm experiencing what appears to be the same problem.

    I'm running Mac OSx Mojave 10.14. I've experienced this issue on both an iMac and a Macbook Pro. Each has 16GB of RAM.…

  16. Frezzing issue

    Since the 23.0 version Illustrator keeps freezing regularly, up to 3 times in a day's usage. There is no actual pattern that i can point to, just that it keeps doing it at certain time intervals and with certain signs sometimes (like the menus not showing), which are also irregular and i have to use Task Manager to close it and open it again.

  17. Can't create a new document.

    Mac OS 10.14.3. I try to create a new document, several different ways. Each time I get an error message: An unknown error has occurred. I click okay to dismiss it and get the error again. I dismiss that and get an error that says : Can't create a new illustration. The command was cancelled.

    This is not an idea, it's a bug.

  18. Illustrator won't let me toggle lock or visibility

    I'm having trouble with adobe illustrator. It won't allow me to use the toggle lock/unlock or the toggle visibility function. I've tried closing and starting the program up again. I've even attempted to work from a different computer. Nothing I have done has helped and the bug always reappears after a few seconds. Is there a way I can correct this bug?

  19. Illustrator underperforming on Mojave

    Since updating to Mojave, Illustrator is sluggish at best. Moving a page activates the spinning wheel every time before moving the page. Almost unusable for work.

    I am using the latest version of CS suite, Illustrator and Mojave.
    Illustrator system info attached.

  20. Crash while setting up Action

    Illustrator crashes every-time I try to set up a new action. I am trying to create a shade effect of a "sticker" but doing the following:
    - Take outline vector (which is white path)
    - Duplicate
    - Switch to fill
    - Change color to black
    - Apply Shear at 20 degrees
    - Edit opacity to 20%
    - Crash

    Just curious as to why this happening. Possibly due to my file size? 162.5 MB
