  6. GPU Preview displaying hidden shapes

    In GPU Preview, turning off the visibility of a shape in the layers panel doesn't always hide the shape - it still remains on screen.
    If I switch to Outline view the shape is hidden correctly.
    If I switch back to GPU Preview the shape is still being displayed.
    I have to reboot Illustrator to get GPU Preview to work correctly again.
    And then it goes wrong again very soon afterwards.

    This has now happened several times.
    I've also had shape fills showing as incorrect colors in GPU Preview, eg. a square with a white fill, suddenly started displaying as…

  7. Vectors rendered too thick on screen

    Since the update to 22.1, all vector lines are being rendered too thickly on screen. Compare any lines drawn in AI with how they appear when printed out - they are inaccurately rendered on screen. Illustrator is a vector application, it cannot be displaying vectors with such poor quality on screen.

  8. Illustrator Active Window lags when plugged into an external monitor

    I am having an issue where when both a Surface Book 2 or a Macbook Pro 2018 is plugged into an external monitor ONLY the active window pane will lag when my curser enters that section of the screen both on the laptop and the external monitor. Doesnt happen when the computer is on its own but ONLY when second mointor is connected. Need this issue resolved and have done a full restart and reinstal of Ai along with tested this with 2 computers and multiple mice.

  9. Paths Previewing Very Oddly

    Paths with a stroke color and no fill are still filling random corners within the shape. I've rebuilt the shape, and checked for redundant nodes, but neither has fixed the problem. To make is worse, this is happening to to connection points at random (sometimes it has a fill, sometimes it doesn't). Definitely a bug, and a very major one.

    Also, copying the artwork into a new document, or even into InDesign, does not fix it. Placing the artwork in InDesign actually makes the preview glitch out. It's as if Adobe gave CC 2018 a lobotomy!

  10. File open as blank white screen regardless of file type or if new document

    Whenever I try to open a new document or a pdf or ai file the screen shows up blank white. It is not because the white part is the art-board since I tried zooming out already and it didn't work. I also tried updating illustrator and that didn't work either nor any other questions I found on here.

  12. iMac 5k 2017 w/ Radeon Pro 580 - Illustrator very slow on GPU preview

    Illustrator version 22.01
    macOS 10.12.6
    iMac 5k 2017 w/ i5 3,8Ghz - 16Gb RAM - 2TB Fusion - Radeon Pro 580
    All the file (also a very little file) is slow on movement, on move object and run with shot and NOT fluid. Slow on select object or shape or everything on file.
    The same file opened on a "slow and old" MacMini with the same configuration and the same macOS is not slow and the movement is very fluid.
    Switching to CPU cause the same things, everything is very slow. Also switching to Print Preview is slow.

    Thanks for…

  13. GPU preview = poor quality in 22.1

    Image quality is poor with GPU performance activated in 22.1: lines appear too thick, anchor points are left on screen when they should have cleared, random artifacts appear on screen for no apparent reason. Solution is either deactivated GPU performance (not acceptable) or toggling to CPU preview on every document every single time the document is opened (also not acceptable). Please work on a fix for this before releasing 22.1 to the public.

  14. Hide text highlighting on "Hide Edges" (CMD+H)

    This was never fixed in CC 2015 - 2017 and the same **** bug is in CC2018.

    In ALL previous versions of AI prior to CC2015 (or at least as far back as CS5 when I got Illy), if you selected text with the Text Tool which made the text highlighted, if you then performed the Hide Edges command, the highlight would NOT show... that way you could change the color, Tracking, font size etc of ONLY the SELECTED characters without affecting the others.

    The "big deal" here is when you are trying to see the color change take effect…

    Under Review  ·  Anish Kumar responded

    Hi,

    Thanks for reporting this bug Illustrator Team really appreciate this.
    We are able to reproduce this issue in house and we are investigating it .

  15. GPU bold fat offset artwork

    I have no idea how to properly name that bug, but here're images.
    This bug, once happened in document, stays at various zoom levels, after switching mode to CPU and back several times, stays after document closed/opened. Even after relaunching AI (he threw an error message also), bug stays!

  16. Rendering Issue When Not Using Application Frame

    When the Application Frame is turned off and a file is opened it does not render correctly. Instead broken sections of the screen appear. It's different each time. In order for the file to render the Application Frame must be turned on. It can then be turned back off if the user prefers not to work in the Application Frame. I have attached a screen grab of one of the files opened with the Application Frame turned off.

  17. 3D Extrude + Bevel = FAIL

    3D extruded rendering is an absolute fail on Adobe CC 22.0.1

    It's 2017 (nearly 2018) and still, Adobe can't get Illustrator to render text in 3D without undesirable results / unwanted artifacts... c'mon guys!

    Let's "FUSE" the engine to make 3D type in illustrator more powerful and display more accurately without errors.

    Thanks!

  19. Flickering cursor & preview bugs in bitmap

    Adobe Illustrator CC 2018 (22.0.1)
    Mac OS Sierra 10.12.6

    The cursor constantly flickers about a month ago when I was still using AI CC 2017 version. After I updated the CC to the latest version yesterday, the problem still occurred.

    Besides, when I import a bitmap/ tiff file to AI, the whole image cannot be viewed. Some parts are hidden. It has the same issue when i export the AI file to jpg.
