  2. Views not updating, tabs not updating.

    Views will simply stop updating in Illustrator. Outline view shows geometry that does not display in GPU preview mode.

    Similarly, when changing from document tab to tab, the window will "freeze" on one document and refuse to show the newly-selected document.

    None of this is remotely acceptable. I pay for and use the Adobe Suite as a professional tool, and I can't have daily failures. Trust in your products is swiftly eroding.

    Please advise a quick and permanent fix for these issues.

    System:

    Illustrator 24.2.1

    MacBook Pro
    2.4 GHz 8-Core Intel Core i9
    32 GB 2667 MHz DDR4

  3. 100% view is not 100% for pixels in cc2019

    OMG, yesterday I've updated illustrator cc2018 to cc2019. Objects now in 100% view are diplayed as ~151% - see attached file - in left side - illustrator cc2018 window and 400x400 px square in 100% view. In the right side - the same square in 100% view.

    Please fix this annoing bug.
    This is on Mac pro late 2013, High Sierra, 27' Eizo monitor 1400x2560

  4. Guides will disappear while dragging with "draw in real time" option feature activated!

    Thhis is NO idea. It's a BUG!

    Illustrator CC 24.1.2

    Guide line will disappear with "drawing in real time" option in preferences activated while one will drag it. Deactivating this great , new "feature" will make it work again.

    So the new SUPER DUPER feature is just as buggy as the whole software, still.

  5. Last Update is making Illustrator behave unexpected showing something like "white noise"

    Last Illustrator update brings this weird issue after opening any file on my machine. As you can see it does not happen only on the work area, but also on UI components. While scrolling down and up again solves temporarily the issue on the work area, the UI cannot be solved neither minimizing or maximizing the program. After some seconds, the work area shows that error again, pixel by pixel.

    Machine: Surface Book 2
    Operating system: Windows 10 1909 (OS Build 18363.752)
    Illustrator version: 24.1.1
    GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060
    Version of the driver: 26.21.14.4575

  6. Can't finish preview 24.0.1

    24.0.1 keeps giving me a "CAN'T FINISH PREVIEW" error but if i open in v23 it opens just fine. Not sure why this release is so flawed.

  7. Only Black Screen display

    When creating a new document or opening an existing document in Illustrator, I get a black screen (see attached). I have to resize the window to be able to work.

  9. Refresh problems in Trim View - Illustrator 24.0

    I'm not sure this is exclusive to GPU, but in Trim View sometimes when working with content, it stops refreshing properly and causing anomalies on screen

  10. Separations preview imac 5k very slow

    There is some problem with Overprint preview turned on, everything becomes verry laggy. I'm on iMac 2019 27" with 40gb of RAM, SSD drive, no plugins. No matter which document is opened, the problem is same - very slow illustrator movement.

    Only sollution is to run Illustrator in Low Resolution mode, then the problem does not exist.

  12. NOT RESPONDING

    The program works fine whenever im doing line work for my portraits but as soon as I highlight it and merge it together the program starts acting really slow and not responding which makes it impossible to work

  13. Rendered objects not matching the outline

    I have found multiple rendering issues with Illustrator 2020 on Mojave 10.14.6
    There are three types:

    1.) When cutting an object with the path finder, it might occasionally produce straight lines instead of curves, although I can't replicate this and it happens rarely.

    2.) The displayed object doesn't follow the outline accurately in general. This is blatantly obvious when zooming in to the max and drawing a small object.

    3.) Lines aren't smooth, they have extremely tiny irregularities. These disappear when zooming (even when already at max) but only for the current screen. Moving the camera reveals new ones and…

  14. UI Panels not rendering with Catalina update

    The panels in the user interface for both Illustrator and Photoshop have started not rendering properly (aka disappearing) both for the document panel and for workspace panels the ever since upgrading to Catalina on Mac. This most commonly happens when pressing "F" to switch between document views. Other times when switching from another application to the Illustrator or Photoshop window, the entire document disappears despite the Window dropdown menu saying it is open.

    I have contacted Adobe Customer Support and they have continually told me to delete my preference files (Illustrator) or turn on/off Legacy compositing (Photoshop). Despite doing these,…

  15. Fill Glitches when Previewing with the GPU

    I work for a printing company, and we see this sort of glitch a lot. We also see it in the same design over multiple different systems so this must be an Illustrator issue rather than a compatibility problem with our graphics cards.

    When rendering with the GPU, fill colors will extend out past the shape bounds. When we switch to render with the CPU, the glitch disappears. See the example attached.

    This is a problem for us. We are losing production time because our printers on the floor see this and assume its an error with the artwork and…

  16. multi-GPU setups cause Illustrator to glitch out and become unresponsive

    I've got a two-GPU computer. If I'm using GPU preview mode, after working for a while (around 20-30 mins or more), the entire Illustrator UI will glitch out and become very artifact-y and unresponsive, and I can no longer work on the files I've got open, necessitating a restart of the app.

    This started happening right after I upgraded from one GPU to two, about a year ago. It happens only in GPU preview mode, not CPU. I've tried updating GPU drivers, updating Illustrator itself--nothing fixes the problem. I've seen other people online with multi-GPU setups say the same thing…

  17. "QuickDraw" (artwork/preview) malfunctions

    Not clear this is actually GPU-related.

    This bug dates back 32 years, all the way to Illustrator 1.0, when Adobe used the term "QuickDraw" to describe it. Terminology has changed, the bug has not. It has happened on every version of Illustrator, on every Mac, under every operating system.

    I've sent the attached screenshots and videos in the past, no response.
    The bug manifests as stray lines or incorrect vectors at certain seemingly-random resolutions.

    In preview mode, in addition to above problems, (possibly a different bug), I often get sectors or areas that do not fill or redraw correctly. Sometimes…

  19. Inconsistency between GPU and CPU modes

    mac OS 10.15.1 (19B88)

    iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, Late 2015)
    4 GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i7
    AMD Radeon R9 M395 2 GB

    I have an issue regarding inconsistent appearance between GPU and CPU modes when using composite fonts. Attached are the screen shot images of the identical material when captured in (1) GPU-mode, (2) CPU-mode, and (3) GPU-mode after outlined.

    As the files show, the last 2 characters show up at different position. The outlined characters show up in the position identical with (2). So I guess (1) has some issue (not displaying the pre-outlined characters at the correct position).
