  1. Panels are mixed up and showing wrong content when docked

    All panels and document windows show some frozen content. This happens daily until I restart. If panels are dragged to be floating they refresh correct until they are docked together again.

  3. Crashes constantly

    Illustrator crashes constantly. Typically, when pasting anything (even a single character) into an existing AI file. We have updated all associated drivers, upgraded video card, re-imaged the OS. Nothing is making this better. After a few strokes, Illustrator will gray out and report "Not Responding."

  4. Zoom in keyboard shortcut bug

    Since the update to Illustrator v. 24.1 the zoom in keyboard shortcut (cmd +) no longer works. The zoom out function (cmd -) does continue to work. I have the same issue in Adobe Acrobat. Any fixes would be appreciated.

  5. Changing font in glyphs crashes program

    Occasionally I'll be searching through my fonts for a decorative character icon. If I change the font at the bottom of the glyphs window I'm likely to hang my software. I suspect that it happens when the character I have selected is not available in the font I am switching to.

  6. Illustrator 2020 on 4K monitor

    Has Illustrator been designed to work on 4K monitors with AMD GPUs? Because my experience is that it isn't; the performance is horrific. Same goes for InDesign and Bridge. Will this ever be addressed?

    Mac Pro 5,1; 10.15.3; 48Gb RAM; 12 core; M.2 drive; Sapphire Pulse RX 5700 XT GPU.

  8. Magic mouse 2 poor performance

    OS Catalina - 10.15.3
    Illustrator - 24.0.3
    Imac 2019 - I9 - 40gb ram - 512 ssd - pro vega 48 8gb

    The performance while using the magic mouse 2 is very... very slow and laggy. Just scrolling left to right/up to down using a single finger swipe is choppy, delayed to the point where it is unusable. I am forced to use a different mouse while working within illustrator (my logitech, which works fine). I know there are some features within mac OS like the inertia scrolling that cause problems but when you disable all of the those features…

  9. measurement imprecision

    Is anybody else noticing that illustrator's precision is off? It's by extremely minute fractions of an inch, but it is still off...and proving extremely problematic while trying to make technical drawings for a medical device company. Close simply isn't good enough, guys. How can something like the fundamental math behind the program be off? I cannot be any more precise in my methodology, and a drawing that should've taken me 10 minutes has taken me 2+ hours. This NEVER used to be a problem.
    I'm sick of this piece of sh*t program. There are big problems that are just being…

  10. Align to Key Object not selectable unless Tool panel is open

    BUG REPORT: "Align to Key Objects" is (sporadically) not selectable as an align method, unless objects are selected while the Tool Panel is open.

    If this panel is closed during object selection, then the "Align to Key Objects" option is greyed out in both the Toolbar and in the Tool Panel (even after it is expanded/opened). This does not happen on every occasion.

  11. Version 24.02 creates random lines and shapes which appear and disappear when scrolling or grouping, consistently crashes upon opening

    Lines and shapes will appear on the shapes I have created, but can't be selected. When grouped or ungrouped with something else, the shape and line disappear, but randomly appear when scrolling. I operate on a Windows laptop

  13. CRASH AND NO RECOVERY

    ever since the most recent updates, my illustrator has been crashing regularly. And worse file recovery has not recovered a single file. this is very wack. I have lost money re-doing things I already made and lost because of random crashes. Very Very disappointing and not encouraging me to continue using illustrator.

  14. Artwork disappearing / Framework in Outline Mode Glitching

    Illustrator art board disappearing and turning to outline mode if I zoom in/out OR try and move an object. Everything seems to be repeating itself in these weird wire frames. I have to save, exit out, then reenter that file. This is happening often and multiple times a day. I'm working on a PC, Windows 10 Pro, Intel Core i9-9900 CPU

  16. Fonts load time

    I have a page of paragraph text and select a top heading to change the font, right click to click on recent fonts window, to select one... but god help you if you accidentally mouse over fonts instead, the beach ball of death. Not sure but it takes literally 3 minutes to finally load, and I am unable to hit esc to try and exit out, it goes until it loads, waiting and waiting and waiting... so not sure if its my system or how many fonts I have loaded, speed ???? Im trying to only select recent fonts, by…

  18. Constant Random Crashing

    Adobe Illustrator CC 2020; A coworker and I are coming across the same issue where our Illustrator is consistently crashing almost every hour or so throughout the day, seemingly at random. It will happen when trying to select/move an object, when trying to save, when clicking on another window, when clicking on a dropdown, and even when the machine is just sitting here doing nothing on my lunch breaks, it's not a question of if it will crash, it's when.

    Sitting behind us is another co-worker who has yet to have this issue happen on his machine, we're all on…

  19. illustrator version 24 vector file is too large


    1. Windows 7 Pro - Adobe Illustrator 24.0.2 (2019)


    2. Opening a 2.7 MB Adobe Illustrator 23 (2018) all vector file and saving it.


    3. Expect file size to remain similar or the same

    4. File size of the new version 24.0.2 results in 260 MB

    The file is using Gaussian blur. I suspect it is this. The file attached is the 2.7 MB version 23 file.
