    Illustrator v23.1 (just updated today 10-5-2019, but problem I'm describing was happening with previous version)

    Crashes 3-6 times per day depending on how much time I spend off and on AI. This had been going on as long as I've had this laptop, but some days are better than others. It stops responding and I have to end task via…

  5. Working on a macOS Mojave 10.14.6, with Adobe Illustrator v23.1.1

    Working on a macOS Mojave 10.14.6, with Adobe Illustrator v23.1.1
    When having several documents open at the same time and in different tabs, out of the sudden all tabs show the same file. Forcing me to restart to be able to see again each tab with it's own design document.

  7. Gradients Crashing Illustrator

    Every time I drag a color swatch, whether an existing swatch or eye-dropped, into my gradient panel, Illustrator crashes. I'm also having issues with my gradient sliders spazzing out when trying to drag them. It causes my program to freeze up. I have one file open and only five gradients in my file, so not enough to overload illustrator. It's making my job extremely hard to do. I have also restarted and tried re-installing illustrator.

  8. 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.

  9. 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?

    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

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. Illustrator CC 2019 Crash on Open / Create - Oct 2019

    Illustrator CC 2019 Crashes on Open / Create

    Windows 10, could not open files or create new in Illustrator CC 2019 but CS6 was fine.

    Updated Illustrator CC - same issue.
    Uninstall / clear prefs / reinstall - same issue.
    Searched forums, found this: https://community.adobe.com/t5/Illustrator/Illustrator-CC-2019-keeps-crashing-when-opening-files/td-p/10641479

    I JUST updated my printer driver a couple of days ago because I was having printer issues. I hadn't opened Illustrator since then. I uninstalled my printer and voila! Illustrator will open / create files now.

    Re-installed the printer and Illustrator CC 2019 appears to be behaving now. I will come update this if it…

  14. Illustrator 23.1.1 flickering panels on mouse release

    Layers Panel flicker

    After upgrading to Illustrator 23.1.1 on a mac each time a mouse click is released on the artboard or when text will be deleted step by step, the layer panel and some times symbols and type formats panel, too, will flash or flicker.

    Switching off GPU usage does not change it anyway.

    It's driving me crazy...

    This flashing is irritating.

    Attempted fixes

    Resetting preferences
    Adjusting GPU performance
    Turning of animated zoom
    Uninstalling illustrator
    Updating everything

    Illustrator Version 23.1.1
    MacOs Mojave 10.14.6

  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

  17. 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.

  18. CC 2019 version runs slow!

    For some reason in this 2019 version of the program it chugs and is very slow to move around and work with my files, even if the files are not very large. I usually have to shut the program down and restart to correct the problem. Would like to know if anyone else is having this problem and if someone at Adobe could address this, thank you.

  20. actions slow and crashing

    All actions that ran smoothly on Illustrator CC 2019 are slow and most of the time crash the new update (CC 2020). Actions are meant to speed up workflow, not slow it down.
