  4. 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

  5. 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…

  6. 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…

  7. GPU Issue in Touch Mode on Surface Pro (2017)

    Hello,
    I have been having a repeated issue with Illustrator leaving checkerboard artifacts onscreen when drawing in Touch Mode on my Surface Pro. After drawing for a while, Illustrator will crash. I've included a clip displaying the artifacts I'm talking about.

    A related issue happens at random when drawing, where the outline will display in red while I'm drawing it, then the line won't actually get drawn. Sometimes when selecting or scaling objects they will similarly display the scale happening, but then nothing actually happens. Usually Illustrator crashes after that.

  9. Overprint preview of overprinting black shows black as semi-opaque

    When something is printed as 100% black and set to overprint, the output will be pure black. No registration issue as the 100% element is carried through the other color breakouts. However, in AI CC 2019m when I zoom way in on text which is 100% black and overprinting, I can actually see through the black type. The intensity of the black varies based on what is underneath. One can even watch the black become muted in appearance as one zooms.

    Shouldn't 100% black appear as 100% black regardless of being set to overprint or not.

  10. Getting odd artifacting when using GPU preview on illustrator

    Shapes look as if they arent inline with each other when using GPU preview, CPU preview fixes the issue but of course I shouldnt have to be running it on CPU preview. The jaggies seem to stem from where there are anchor points, but not every anchor point.

    Using Intel i5 6500 CPU with an RX480 8gb GPU

  11. GPU preview glitch

    I encounter this glitch since introduction of GPU preview.
    Only now I managed to narrow down the conditions to replicate it.

    When the Control pane is switched off (Window > Control), and Screen Mode is in Fullscreen Mode with Menu Bar, then when the working area is scrolled down, black horisontal lines appear. As if they are somehow traced by the top edge of the working area. Once I zoom out/in, they disappear. Also switching to CPU preview removes the glitch all together. This appears on both retina and non-retina displays.

    This does not happen when the Control pane is…

  12. Illustrator WILL NOT display art OR artboards.

    How about making Illustrator useable for starters?
    I pay enough for this service. I have done a full update and restart of my computer, all of my adobe products are up to date, AND I've uninstalled and reinstalled Illustrator.
    This is what I get when I open a new document. Show artboards is on. NOTHING comes up despite using ALL of the fixes I can find in your boards.

    I expect a service I drop $700 a year on to actually WORK Adobe.

  14. Rendering Issue When Not Using Application Frame

    When the Application Frame is turned off and a file is opened it does not render correctly. Instead broken sections of the screen appear. It's different each time. In order for the file to render the Application Frame must be turned on. It can then be turned back off if the user prefers not to work in the Application Frame. I have attached a screen grab of one of the files opened with the Application Frame turned off.

  16. Illustrator cc 2018 does not work correctly with the Nvidia GF 610m graphics card.

    The program closes with an error when selecting the brush tool. Is there any solution to this problem? I know about switching to an integrated graphics card, but its performance is very small. I noticed the same thing when working with nvidia in illustrator, the tooltip does not show any hints, just the new dialog for creating a new document does not appear (only the advanced one works or the old one works, I do not know how it is called correctly).

  18. Visual Bug

    Updated to latest release of Illustrator, opened a PDF to encounter the bug shown in attached screenshot.

    Windows 10
    NVidia 980

    Hasn't appeared in any other file.

    Bug is related to text that appears missing at bottom of PDF (three lines worth is blank), and disappears when I zoom into 300%.

  19. Sierra (macOS 10.12.6) GPU rendering issues for Illustrator CC 2018

    I recently upgraded to CC 2018, and I've been having issues with pathfinder as well as how paths are being displayed. Attached is a shot of what's occurring...this phenomenon not only happens in new edits since udpdating, but is showing up in files that did not display this way previously.
