  1. Illustrator laggy and slow on when using CPU. Colours not accurate on GPU

    Hello, I'm using a MacOs 10.14.6 2.6 GHz Intel Core i7 and I have Illustrator 23.1.1.
    I've been having the following issue (even before updating to this version).
    Every time I use the CPU view Illustrator becomes really slow and laggy.
    I mostly use GPU mode for this reason but the colours are not accurate in this view. Colours look more opaque.
    I tried resetting my preferences, disabling GPU performance, disabling dictation on my mac, change my document raster effects settings to screen (which made a little bit better), but nothing quite work.

    I can't continue with the workaround of…

  4. GPU Preview hangs with simple file

    System specs: MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2015) • GPU Intel Iris Pro 1536 MB • OSX 10.14.6 • Illustrator 23.1.1

    I have an Illustrator file (attached) which is originally imported from a dwg file but doesn't seem to contain that much artwork. Trying to open this file (or preview) with GPU either hangs Illustrator or takes minutes on end to render. The same thing happens if this file is placed in Indesign and GPU preview is on there, even recovering that document after force quitting hangs Indesign.

    I can simply work around this problem by disabling GPU performance from…

  6. Illustrator CC Crashes In Tablet Mode

    Illustrator regularly crashes every couple of hours when my Spectre x360 is in tablet mode, also when using the HP Pen. Is anyone else getting this?

    Running Illustrator in power saving mode was suggested as a workaround, but it's still crashing.

    System info attached.

  8. "QuickDraw" (artwork/preview) malfunctions

    Not clear this is actually GPU-related.
    This bug dates back 32 years, all the way to Illustrator 1.0, when Adobe used the term "QuickDraw" to describe it. Terminology has changed, the bug has not. It has happened on every version of Illustrator, on every Mac, under every operating system.
    I've sent the attached screenshots and videos in the past, no response.
    The bug manifests as stray lines or incorrect vectors at certain seemingly-random resolutions.
    In preview mode, in addition to above problems, (possibly a different bug), I often get sectors or areas that do not fill or redraw correctly. Sometimes…

  9. GPU rendering problem. - My graphics appear pixelated at certain zoom levels. Comes and goes. Very annoying when working.

    This happened a few months or weeks ago.

    I am using Macbook Pro - 2017
    OS version: Mojave 10.14.5 (18F132)
    Adobe Illustrator: 23.0.4
    This issue disappears when I turn of GPU rendering but I am used to working with GPU rendering ON.

    I am hoping for a fix on this soon or maybe there is already. please let me know. Thanks :)

  12. phantom lines overlapping paths

    Sometimes a portion of my shape will look cut off. There is no vector information generating is, it just renders it that way for some reason. Examples attached:

  13. wrong monitor profile applied when moving AI to a different screen in a multi-monitor setup

    Setup: MacOS, latest version / AI, latest version / three different displays (two wide gamut) attached to 2017 MacBook Pro 15" 2017

    The monitor profile of the display on which a file is opened first seems to be still in effect to render colors, after moving the window to another monitor (with a different gamut) while in GPU preview.
    Colors are quite off when moving a window from a wide-gamut display to an sRgb one and vice versa.
    Overprint view or CPU view seem to be correct, but are very slow to work with.

  14. Objects not displaying in the right place?

    I've been encountering lots of stuff like this, usually restarting the app will fix it. This time a closed the doc, re-opened and this was still happening...

  16. Trim View (2019) is rendering properly in GPU view when adding from libraries

    Details of your operating system and version of Adobe Illustrator: Windows 10 Insider Build 18312. Illustrator 23.0.1
    The steps you were taking when you experienced the issues: When working in Trim View in GPU view, when I add assets from the Libraries panel and move them onto the artboard, my background raster image gets black blocks/rendering issue. If I zoom in and out it goes away until I move the top object again. If I switch to CPU view the issue goes away.

  19. Illustrator Active Window lags when plugged into an external monitor

    I am having an issue where when both a Surface Book 2 or a Macbook Pro 2018 is plugged into an external monitor ONLY the active window pane will lag when my curser enters that section of the screen both on the laptop and the external monitor. Doesnt happen when the computer is on its own but ONLY when second mointor is connected. Need this issue resolved and have done a full restart and reinstal of Ai along with tested this with 2 computers and multiple mice.
