  1. Many Many issues with Illustrator 2018


    1. Ever since I've updated to Illustrator 2018, the program is always lagging and becomes non-responsive. Something simple like selecting "T" for a new text line will stall my program. I've attached my computer specs.


    2. The alt shortcut for brush tool no longer selects color with the eye drop tool. I have to manually select the eyedropper, then switch back to the brush tool which is very frustrating when I need to do this hundreds of times a day!


    3. The startup time has increased dramatically. Showing a blank screen for a couple minutes until the illustrator home screen finally appears. Also…

  2. Transform Tool

    Entering a number in X then hitting tab to Y and typing in the number is jogging to another number and not applying the number I typed. I have to wait a couple seconds then type in the number for Y. This worked fine two versions ago.

  3. Illustrator CC (2018) will run out of memory and/or crash

    Will sip every mb of your memory and won't let me zoom in after that, changes to CPU preview and will tell that there's no memory left and crash.
    Happened to me several times in one day alone and with only 2 files open (light vector only). I have a 24Gb RAM workstation and it swallows 20GB in 1/2 hour.

  6. Illustrator 2018 not working

    Illustrator 2018 is not working. How can I downgrade to 2017?
    The whole artboard is flashing everytime I move the mouse. The rulers are flashing. Portions of the vectors are just disappearing. I have rebooted my computer twice. Illustrator 2018 is not working.

  8. Slow performance when opening file from SMB3 volume

    Illu CC2018, OS X 10.11, SMB3 volume: open, save, place links etc. on/from SMB3 volume is incredibly slow (smae with SMB1 and SMB2). Indesign & PS CC2018 do not show this behaviour.

  9. Units in AI 2018 not functioning properly

    The new update to Illustrator, 2018, seems to be having issues with files made in previous versions of Illustrator, as of 10/19/17. I'm having trouble setting the Units. When I try to set my rulers to inches, they seem to remain at points - even the properties pallet.

    Although, I just reinstalled 2017 (on 10/20/17) because of these bugs and when I launched the AI app from the CC app, it launched the 2018 version (since I had not yet uninstalled it). When I checked again, this issue seems to have been resolved since yesterday. I kept double checking and…

  10. Trackpad zooming causing an earthquake on Illustrator CC 2018

    Zooming in via the trackpad causes an unexpected earthquake-like glitch. Zooming in via keyboard shortcuts work as expected.

    Also, at the end of the video, I show off the full screen bug, which has been present since CC 2017 version after updating to High Sierra. This also happens in probably all other applications (its like this too I believe in Ps and Id) Thought that would've been fixed by now! Thanks.

  11. Exporting to PSD file, leaves whie pixel around edge

    When exporting a file from Illustrator to Photoshop with layers, I am noticing a white line around the edge, and when I zoom into it in Photoshop, I see it is not solid color to the edge of the artboard in Photoshop. It is however aligned perfectly in Illustrator, and I have clicked on Pixel Perfect.

  12. Pixelated lines

    Wondering if anyone has experienced this issue before? I just installed AI and using the Adobe presets (I haven't changed anything). The lines are viewing very pixelated...how...why?! Is there a setting I need to change?

  13. Copying and Pasting Text from a Word Doc instantly crashes Illustrator

    I'm using the latest version of Adobe Illustrator on Windows 10. After my first crash, I re-opened Illustrator and created a new document. Before doing anything else, I switched over to the .docx file I had open in WPS Writer and copied some of the text that was there to my Clipboard. Once I switched back to Illustrator, clicked on the artboard and pressed Ctrl+V, Illustrator immediately stops responding and crashes.

  15. Ctrl+F

    Antigamente, o ctrl+F (colar no local) colava a forma no mesmo local independentemente da camada ou artboard. Hoje ele cola apenas na mesma camada na qual foi recortado ou copiado. Isso é muito ruim pois temos que direcionar para a camada desejada manualmente. Acho que isso é um bug visto que a função perde o sentido.

  16. Illustrator CC 2017 (macOS 10.13) crashes unexpectedly in High Sierra.

    I was creating a second artboard and about to save my file when the program just crashed. This is the third time this has happened since I upgraded and before I realized there was a compatibility issue. Also, when opening Illustrator first thing in the morning after turning the computer on, it is back to taking a long time to open, usually getting hung up on the Perspective.aip.

  18. High Sierra MacOS 10.13 Illustrator and navigation

    When I use Command+Tab to navigate between programs, I have to hide all open programs to see Illustrator's interface. The open palettes will display, but not the the document window, toolbar, application bar. When I try to hide Illustrator, only the palettes respond. Illustrator is generally sluggish with High Sierra.
