  2. Dysfunction rendering CPU and GPU AMD Radeon R9 M395X 4 Go (iMac)

    Hello,

    When GPU rendering is enable, the colors rendering are not the good one.
    When CPU rendering is enable, scrolling are very very slow, and the colors rendering are not good too, but more good than with GPU rendering.

    This bug has arisen by MacOS Sierra to MacOS Hight Sierra update.
    Before this update, everything worked perfectly.

    I called Apple Care Hotline.
    they could do nothing to assist him.

    I have an iMac i7 4 Ghz with AMD Radeon R9 M395X 4 Go (iMac), 40 Go RAM.
    I’m on Creative cloud, and all my adobe softwares are updated.

    Thanks.

    Guillaume

  3. Layers Window Twirl Down Icon Issue

    I only know of this occurring on the latest version of Adobe Illustrator CC 2017 for Windows 8.1. In the Layers Windows, there's a very slight graphical bug. A locked group within another locked group is expanded to show what it contains by pressing the sideways "V" shaped arrow to the group's left side. As expected, the arrow plays its animation of rotating into the downward "V" shape and expanding the group. However, when the locked group is compressed down again, the button to expand the group disappears and is unclickable until clicking off to another item in the Layers…

  5. Illustrator CC/Windows- When selecting multiple type boxes and lines it randomly deselects the group.

    When trying to align un-grouped lines and text boxes, it will deselect before I am able to move anything. I've updated to the most current version available (21.0.2) and reset preferences and am still having the same issue.

  9. 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.

  11. High Sierra: "Package" function doesn't work

    Hi everyone. On High Sierra the "Package" function doesn't work properly (Illustrator 21.1.0). The fonts are packed completely, the links sometimes too, but often there are a lot missing links. The document itself is not saved into the packed folder. A message appears, that the packaging couldn't be done.

  13. Flickering Cursor

    The cursor constantly flickers after I opened Illustrator 3 months ago, and I cannot type anything anywhere in my laptop. Before that, I could use this software normally. Really annoying, please fix it.

  14. 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.

  15. Fonts

    My synced fonts don't show up in Illustrator. These are fonts that have been syncs for months. Restarting Illustrator does nothing. Unsyncing and resyncing fonts on Typekit does nothing.

  16. Cannot open multiple files


    1. Version 21.1.0 (windows)

    2. Selecting multiple files, right clicking to open all files

    3. Expected results that all files open the same way I have been opening files for years.

    4. Only one file opens and locks illustrator, need to close out program through task manager, restart computer and that sometimes fixes the issue. If not I have to uninstall and reinstall illustrator and that fixes the issue for a day or two.

  18. Text selection not showing highlighting after macOS High Sierra 10.13 download

    When selecting any text, the text is not highlighted, thus removing my ability to know what I have selected. I am running a mid 2010 MacBook Pro. All was working well until I updated to macOS High Sierra 10.13. I have done all work arounds with no success.

  19. Swatches disappear

    I've been experiencing this phenomena in which my swatches would disappear every now and then. One day, I'll have all the default swatches available in the swatch menu, other days, it'll only be the color white.

  20. Fix Illustrator freezing and crashing

    I'm using Illustrator CC 2013.5. Illustrator freezes and ultimately crashes about 7 minutes after opening the program. Have to close the program using Task Manager. Uninstall/reinstall did not fix it.
