  4. Display Issue ?

    Having very odd display issues, (see attached files) basically I draw a curved shape in outline, this views correctly, then view it in overprint mode, this views correctly, view it in standard mode and it is awful, I've tried restart/making a new document etc etc, still views awful ????

    please advise..... don't ask me to work in overprint preview as one of my others posts states, that is ridiculously slow.

  6. Closing documents makes Illustrator 2020 to hang (24.3)

    On Windows 10 (v 1909) when closing a document (previously saved, or opened without any change, or a new empty document) Illustrator hangs and is unresponsive for 5-20 sec.
    This is happening after update.
    Photoshop had the same problem, but the hanging time reduced after the newest updates.

  7. Static (not file related)

    I am on a Windows 10, hp. I am not sure what is going on with my Illustrator. I've been using it pretty regularly. Recently it crashed. When I reopened it, there is now some kind of static at the top of the document. It doesn't matter what type of file is open. I have tried opening different Ai files or creating new ones and the static is still there. I have also tried uninstalling/reinstalling/updating etc. Nothing has helped. Every time I move the view or click around, the static moves. I can still work, but it's extremely distracting and…

  10. Illustrator 2020 24.3 Extremely slow performance and lagging on Windows 10

    Extremely slow performance and lagging making Illustrator unusable under win 10 pro. Massive lag (sometimes 10 sec) when moving, selecting, objects or zooming, sometimes when selecting tools.

    I had v23.4 installed on the same machine with Win 7 a week ago and had no issues. New install of Windows 10 with the same version of illustrator is unusable even though my machine spec is above requirements and has no other issues.

    I've installed the previous version of illustrator to test but had the same performance issues.

    All drivers updated, and ran through performance troubleshooting in adobe support pages.

    Win 10…

  12. Selection frozen. cant move objects

    Working Illustrator for 3hrs. Suddenly can't move anything. Can only select objects. No windows open. No warning.

    Bug happened across 4 tabs. Was still present after restarting Illustrator. Had to restart Macbook in order to fix.

    Really getting tired of the 'futuristic CC'. So many bugs. So unreliable.

  13. can't open new file or work on the app at all.

    I just downloaded Illustrator 2020 on my PC. The PC is a little old but has all the required specs to run the program. However whenever I open Illustrator and try to open a new file (after selecting my preferences page size etc) nothing pops up I still see the "welcome to Illustrator" home page but can still select the tools and see the blank artboards I just created however nothing gets applied to them visually but if I throw in a big black triangle I see it only on the thumbnail from the Layers panel which is obviously too…

  14. AiRobin hogging huge amounts of RAM (between 12GB and 16 GB) and at times slows the machine down.

    I have turned off "background save / export" which is apparently the purpose of AiRobin. Nonetheless, it has continued to run for the couple of months since I turned those off. Today I had InDesign, Photoshop, and Illustrator open momentarily; I try to avoid that, but usually it's fine for 5 or 10 minutes. This time it wasn't, and I could literally do nothing (even move the mouse for the most part) for close to 15 minutes. I was finally able to pull up Activity Monitor and I ended the process for AiRobin. Immediately things improved. But sure enough, AiRobin…

  15. object distortion on perspective grid after pathfinder unite

    Windows 10 home, Illustrator 2020.

    After uniting two or more rectangles on the perspective grid to make a more complex shape, moving/copying the new object using the perspective selection tool results in distortion as the object appears to have become detached from it's perspective plane. The behaviour is shown in the attached image.

    Inserting the step Object > Perspective > Attach to active directly after Unite allows the object to move correctly (thanks Monika Gause) although it was suggested that perhaps this step shouldn't be necessary and it should be able to move correctly without it.

    Many thanks, Craig.

  16. Select Same Fill & Stroke not working, version 24.3

    Select Same Fill & Stroke is not working in Illustrator CC, version 24.3. I'm using it on a large image traced vector pattern and need to change out the shape colors. I've used to do this all the time in past versions.

  18. Extensions

    Okay, so the new update of illustrator is still as laggy, as before, if not more, the extensions doesn't show up, nor work, you can't remove an extension and you can't add a new one.
    And don't tell me to install it manually, because honestly, this is not why I'm paying a monthly subscription since 2015.

    If whenever I have a problem I have to go through a thousand threads and check a thousand suggestions, I have no idea why I'm paying a monthly subscription, when I can just buy another program ONE TIME.
    Or use pirated versions :)

    So…

  19. Very high latency/lag/delay with basic operations

    I am using a wacom cintiq pro 24HD and a thinkpad P1 running the Win10 pro for workstations (2004 build). All my drivers are up to date. I am running the latest build of illustrator (v 24.3).

    There's very high lag with basic move / resize operations (1-2 seconds) both with and without using the cintiq. + pen.

    With the rotate and reflect tools, the lag is up to 4 minutes if i'm using the wacom, and it's still 1-2s without.

    Please help, this has been an issue over the last few releases of illustrator and it doesn't seem to…

  20. Illustrator (24.3) Slow lagging, AI and EPS files issues, non responsive

    macOS Mojave (10.14.6)

    Working on large scale signage graphics - have completing almost exactly the same thing for previous jobs with no issue. 24AUG20 AI auto updated and instantly could not move graphics in file - constant spinning wheel and slow loading times.

    Saving file was extremely slow - ceasing to save from 80-90% and then crashing (crash report sent). The only way to continue working was to save as EPS.

    Also attempted saving graphic elements out as EPS files to place into INDD where EPS was pixilated (fully or partially). PDF exported from INDD unable to save correctly with…
