Illustrator unusably slow on a brand new Mac
This performs so poorly that it's unusable. Right after installation, on a completely new iMac 3.0 ghz 6 core computer, it is so slow that it takes 6 seconds for a dropdown menu to appear. Using the pen tool takes several,l seconds for each point to appear. If you try to move the window it gets stuck to the mouse because the feedback is lagging for so many seconds.
I've tried turning off every feature I could under view and preferences, that might affect performance, with no change.
I used illustrator way back in the early 90's, when it probably was 50megs, now it's 2 gigs and performs so poorly. Why does this program need to be so bloated?
