  1. pathfinder, file sizes, interface changes

    case # 018 9255 921
    Pathfinder does not function properly in Illustrator CC 2017 on my 4 ghz i7 (late 2015) imac. OSX 10.11.16; AMD Radeon R9 M395 2048 MB, forcing me to fall back and work in old Illustrator CS6.

    When I divide two shapes or paths (particularly curves, ellipes etc), the anchor points sometimes move, and paths (curves, angles etc) change. Very sloppy, "kind-of, sort-of" results, with an absolute lack or precision.

    CS6 and earlier versions did not have this problem. It is intermittent and unpredictable, but troublesome enough as to render CC 2017 unusable and made me…

  4. Panel type and icons are enormous

    I recently upgraded Illustrator. the panels are gigantic. The type is ridiculously huge . the panels are taking up more than half my screen and I need all of them available. How do I get the panels to display nice and tiny and compact like they did before? Am I supposed to buy another graphics card and get a third monitor just to hold adobe panels? Am I really supposed to buy new glasses just for Illustrator just because Adobe can't be bothered to make things a normal type size?

  5. Create New Button Does Nothing

    I'm using OS X El Capitan with a multi display setup, comprising of two monitors and a Wacom Cintiq. Sometimes with multiple desktops and multiple monitors popup windows will open in strange places and I have to find them-- however I've gotten rid of my extra desktops and tried to replicate the problem running a single monitor and it persists.

    Neither Premiere nor Photoshop have this issue.

    Illustrator opens up fine, but when I get to the prompt to open a recent project or create a new one, everything works except clicking "Create New" doesn't do anything. Of course I…

  6. Sluggish tool bar

    You mean "fix" illustrator this is a problem not a new idea.

    1. When you try to change to the second tier in the tool bar (i.e. from rotate to mirror there is a long lag. It used to be so easy you just slide over now you have to hold the mouse on the thing for 3 seconds and the it pops over to the side then you have to scroll over and release. Why did you make it slower in the most recent version when it worked fine for years?

    2. can't toggle to minus Magnifying glass tool with option…

  7. Resize handles offset from selection

    For some reason, all of my resize handles are offset from the actual object that's selected. I'm not sure what causes this problem, but it makes the entire app very difficult to use.

  9. USB iPhone tether connection causes bugs in AI CC 2017 Layers panel

    When a USB connection is made to iPhone for internet tethering, Illustrator CC 2017 Layers panel:

    1. Won't allow toggling the lock or eye icons unless clicked several times each.

    2. Won't allow slide up and down the locks or eyes to lock/unlock or show/unshow everything.

    3. Won't allow naming a layer unless done from options.

    4. Won't allow dragging square of an object from one layer to another.

    All resolve upon disconnecting the USB iPhone internet tethering connection.

  10. Escape function and some other shortcuts are not working in Illustrator 2020

    Despite following community guidelines on how to fix the problem with the escape button, the problem has not been fixed. Along with some other shortcuts not working, this has been very frustrating

  11. selected points don't appear to be selected

    When I use the Group Select, or the Direct Select tool, often the "anchors" will don't appear to be highlighted when you click to select. If you then hover your mouse over the points, they once again appear to be selected.
    I've also seen instances of the opposite--when the top left (control panel) states "no selection," yet anchor points appear to be selected. (The points are NOT selected, as any attempt to modify using a menu choice yields a message such as "make a selection first.")

  12. Border not shown while moving object (v 25.x)

    Yes, as the title says, border not shown anymore while moving objects. This happens since we updated to v 25.x (current version: 25.2.1).

    If this should be a feature, this is just bad. Please give us at least an option to activate/deactivate this behavior. If you have to move objects over a background with the same color, you just can see nothing!

    We go back to version 24.x now, because its not possible to work properly with 25.x. Hope you will change this soon. Thank you.

  14. Can't select text. I have to drag over it but then I can't move the text box.

    When I open a file, I can select a text box one time. Then I have to drag over the text to select it. I can't move the text at all with the selection tool. I have to use my arrow keys.

    I've been using Illustrator professionally for 17 years. It gets slower with every update. I don't understand the need for changes when they make it harder to use.
