  2. Anchor points not displaying with layer color

    My anchor points are not displaying correctly. They are not the layer color and when objects are selected, they are a light gray and barely visible on a white or any color background. I've tried changing the layer color and that doesn't help and have checked any preferences that may have been changed, but still the same issue.

  3. pixel preview doesn't refresh correctly until reapplied.

    Steps to reproduce:
    - New document with units set to pixels
    - view: 'snap to pixel' and 'pixel preview' turned on.
    - Use the rectangle tool to make a new shape, eg. 20 pixels square.
    - Set the fill colour to a high contrast colour (eg. dark grey) and turn off the stroke
    - zoom the view, move around.

    Expected result:
    - the rectangle should appear pixel-perfect (sharp) against the pixel grid, with no anti-aliased bluring
    - the view should acurately update when I zoom and move around to display pixel perfect artwork

    Actual result:
    - the rectangle is bordered…

  4. Cannot Successfully Get Into Project

    AI opens normally but when I start a new file things go awry. The home screen image remains "ghosted" over the blank project. Any side panel I open and close will then appear as if it is both open and closed at the same time. If I toggle the visability of the layer then it sort of clears the project screen to an almost normal looking project start (as in it clears the ghosted panels and home screen) but I cannot draw or do anything on the project. I am not experiencing any performance issues as far as lag or…

  5. 透明部分を含むグレースケールモードのPSDファイルを配置するとGPUプレビューできない。

    オペレーティングシステム macOS 10.15.6(imac20,1 32GBmem/1TBSSD/AMD Radeon Pro 5300_4GB)
    Illustrator CC ver.25.2.3

    問題が発生したときに実行していた手順
    1. CMYKドキュメントをGPU表示で編集中に透明部分を含むグレースケールモードのPSDファイルを配置する。
    2. GPUプレビューからCPUプレビューに切り替わり、以降、Illustratorを再起動するまでそのドキュメントでは先程の配置画像を除去してもGPUプレビュー表示に戻せない。

    想定していた結果
    GPU表示が正しく機能する。

    実際の結果
    CPU表示に強制的に切り替わってしまい、GPUプレビュー表示に出来ない。

    RGBモードのドキュメントではこの症状は発生しません。透明部分を含む画像形式であっても他の形式ではこの問題は発生しません。また、Windowsでは起きないとの報告を受けています。

  7. Illustrator 2022 GPU Preview freezes on file load/zoom/switch with RTX 2060 and RTX 3060

    Illustrator 2022 (26.2.1) freezes for up to 5 minutes when GPU Preview is enabled on file load, zoom, switch. The CPU usage rises to 99% during the freeze and a system level interruption is observed at the end of the freeze that lasts up to 10 seconds. A memory leak takes place after every freeze even after all files are closed. Only closing Illustrator entirely releases de the abnormally allocated memory. CPU Preview is not affected by this.

    The tested systems are:

    Setup 1:

    Windows 11 64-bit, 21H2, 22000.652
    Intel Core i7-9700F
    32 GB RAM - DDR4-2666 - Dual Channel…

  8. Pink screen and residual image artifacts

    The pink screen flash is back for me in 26.03 when opening files, but now I have the added bonus of image shrapnel being left everywhere (image attached).

    Mac mini M1. Happens with both MacOS 12.1 and 12.2 beta (release candidate).

  9. Enlarging makes preview disappear

    When I zoom in extremely large, the image disappears. This happens with CPU activated and not activated.

  10. The artboard names and numbers dissapeared in 25.4.1

    I can still see the grey box in the top left corner of the artboards, but the names and numbers are gone. It started when I updated Illustrator to 25.3.1. I thought the issue would be solved in this new update but it is still there

  12. Animated zoom stops working after using Outline preview

    The animated zoom stops working after I use preview. I've checked in the preferences, and it's still enabled. The only way to fix this that I have found is to restart the program.

  15. BUG GPU preview clips top of outlined text

    In the current version if Illustrator, 26 we have noticed a bug in GPU preview.
    Tops of letters, or shapes appear to be clipped at an angle. This is not present in a PDF created from the same file and goes away when switching to CPU preview. Can be recreated with any file and also on Mac running current Illustrator version as well.

  16. Images in clipping masks glitching and overlaying artwork when in GPU

    This is similar to previous posts but not sure if the same.. apologies if repeating. In the latest version of illustrator, images within clipping masks are glitching out and making the file impossible to work with. These glitched versions of the masked image change constantly when zooming in or out, but do not disappear as they used to when illustrator bugged out previously. see attached screenshot. The orange metal flake texture should only exist within the frame of the bicycle. The lighter orange glitchy shapes do not exist.

  20. Part of an object's position is shifted with no distortion effects. Moving/undoing move resets position correctly

    This was a devastating glitch for us. I've seen this happen before sporadically but I have no idea what causes it or how to catch it. If anyone else has seen this and/or knows a solution to catch issues like this, please let me know. There were no effects or special attributes applied to the artwork in the appearance panel
