Illustrator 24.3 Crashing When Selecting Colours with the Layers Palette Open
Illustrator 24.3 crashes when changing the colour of a gradient handle if the Layers palette is open and on-screen. Video above is a freshly re-installed Illustrator in a brand new user account (macOS 10.15.6).
I am happy to share that we have fixed this bug in our latest release – 25.0 which is available worldwide now.
Going forward, our goal is to fix as many top User-Voice bugs as possible and as frequently as possible. Given the nature of the fixes, some of the bugs will take a longer time to fix, but we are on it.
You can update to the latest release using Creative Cloud desktop App: https://helpx.adobe.com/in/creative-cloud/help/creative-cloud-updates.html
Thank you for all the feedback. Keep it coming!
Similar thing for me - not dependent of the layers panel though. Just crashes when changing the solid colors of a gradient. Works fine if I change the colors by using the sliders in the color palette, but crashes if use a direct pick.

Unfortunately same issue here. Adobe Illustrator 24.3 crash during use gradient tool. Turn off the GPU setting in preferences didn't solve the problem.

Mine will also crash if I select an object with a gradient and then try to change to a solid colour in the palate.
I have had the same issue, along with slow performance.
I've installed a font manager. Same problem.
I have a new mac pro tower 2020, latest OS X, and updated Ai 24.3
This is costing me real loss of productivity.

Yes same over here. Made a report at adobe. Started a week a go. Working in a Mac system version OS 10.15.6 + latest Illustrator update 24.3. Lost work and working hours.
