  1. Glitchy M1 Version. Moving Object Distorts Object Beyond Recognition

    The simple act of moving a group object is not working in the Apple Silicon version. Just clicking on it distorts it beyond usuable recognition. Video if action attached.

  2. CPU Preview defaults even for basic usage (Macbook Pro 2019)

    CPU Preview is forced even with basic files with horrible performance. Can not choose GPU Preview after a few moment.

  3. Illustrator 2021 and 2022 Zoom not working correctly after OS update to Monterey

    Like the title says, after update to Monterey.... when using Illustrator 21 or 22 when zooming into an object, either vector, tiff, eps on the document the screen goes gray about 150% to 300%. I have reset many things, GPU.... reset preferences, colors, overprint off and on.... nothing seems to correct it. This happened Only after going from Big Sur to Monterey. Attached is a screen shot at 100% zoom, then the same art at 300%. The art is all vector, that really doesn't matter, vector and images act the same when zooming. Another screen shots on another job at…

  5. GPU表示時、リンク画像にぼかし・クリッピングマスク・回転を実行すると表示されなくなる

    ・Mac OS Catalina 10.15.7 Illustrator 26.0.3

    ・表示/GPUでプレビュー
     アートボード上に画像ファイルをリンクで配置し、それに対し
     効果/スタイライズ/ぼかし
     適当なパスオブジェクトでクリッピングマスク
     回転ツールで回転(画像とクリッピングパス一緒に実行)

    ・想定していた結果:ぼかしとクリッピングマスクのついた
     画像ファイルが回転した状態で表示される

    ・実際の結果:画像ファイルが表示されなくなる
     なお、表示/CPUプレビュー時は想定していた通りに表示される

    ・試したこと

     OS・Illustratorが同バージョンのMac数台で同じ操作を実行
     →同じ結果になります

     効果/パスの変形/変形/角度 で回転を実行
     →同じ結果になります

     うめこみ画像に対して同じ操作を実行
     →想定していた通りの結果になります

  6. 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…

  8. Display errors on tool 'preview video' and 'selection tool'

    Please refer to the two images attached. Hovering a tool or a part of an image is enough to show the visual defect.

  9. Visual breakdown bug when zoomed in < 30000%

    In keyline and normal view, when zooming in very close, the image breaks down. This didn't happen in previous versions. The first attached image shows the image correctly, with zoom at 12750%. The second attachment shows the image 'broken down' when zoomed in further. The multitude of diagonal lines shouldn't be there (these increase when panning) and the selected line (that I'm trying to work on) should be a complete line, not an endpoint. This bug makes detailed work very difficult.

  10. 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).

  11. Paths previewing incorrectly with artifacts.

    Paths are previewing incorrectly, adding artifacts, and the path line is not accurate to the previewed shape. In the attached screenshots, you can see how this makes it almost impossible to accurately illustrate detailed work. Please help!

  12. 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…

  13. 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

  14. Display wigging out when placing images

    Displaying crazy in 26.0.2. When drawing or placing images, screen goes completely white or shows a strange box with an "x". No matter where i click, the mouse click will drag from the corner of the item on the artboard, scaling it.

  16. GPU preview gets disabled

    In Illustrator version 26.0.2 the GPU preview is disabled when rulers are shown or you enter outline or isolation mode. This bug has been around since at least v24.

  17. Coordinates label rendering problem in Overprint Preview mode

    1. Open the file and make sure Overprint Preview mode is on (thus GPU is off)

  18. flickering guide lines

    In Illustrator 25.4.1 one cannot use the guides while Astute Plugins active! What did you do Adobe? While selecting objects the guide lines will appear blink think suddenly while someone click drags the mouse as long as one releases the mouse button again. While dragging objects, the guide lines will be fine, but with nothing selected, click drag will cause flickering guide lines.

  20. Color Bug

    When I move objects, the colors bug out. As you can see in the picture ''Bug'' , I am only using different shades of purple and the light orange that is in the background, as shown in ''Bug 2'' . All of the darker orange is not supposed to be there and they only appear when I move objects around. This continues unless I move the screen off the artwork and then go back, then it dissapears but comes back as soon as I move an object. So far I'm unable to find a solution for this, so I would…
