  1. Refreshing the display with GPU-View activated seems to be buggy

    While some of the GPU-related glitches seem to be fixed wich the actual Version 25.4 (at least on my iMac here), there is still some strange behaviour that seems to occur on every version newer than 25.0:

    Everytime I open a document, the workspace turns black for a moment. That is not a big problem, but strange, as it never happened in 25.0 or older.

    Second, there are quite often problems in refreshing the display, when moving around in the illustration or copying/dragging objects around. The display gets crippled (blank spaces, where they should not be) and I have to…

  2. GPU performance causes screen artefacts

    In AI 25.4, when GPU Performance is enabled, at some point when working on a file, or switching between screens, thin vertical and horizontal black lines will appear. They seem to flash on and off for a second or more as though Illustrator is switching between tabs or other open applications.

    I've tried to take a screenshot/video when this happens but it doesn't show up, if you look at the screenshot/video, it's as though those lines were never there.

    When GPU Performance is disabled, the issue goes away.

  3. pattern glitch

    When moving an object with a pattern fill, I get these streaks and the lag is TERRIBLE. This also happens when editing a pattern as well.

    I'm working on a new iMac with an M1 chip. So far my Adobe programs run very slowly... not the upgrade I thought I'd be making.

    Please fix the pattern interface.

  5. Consistent Display Bug

    1. MacBook pro 2021, big sur 11.4
    2. version 25.3.1

    On textured illustrations or illustrations using clipping masks, solid white boxes/sometimes pixel shapes sometimes larger, will appear. Some components I can zoom close enough in that they disappear, but some sketches I would be zooming in so far as to crop the sketch before the white boxes disappear.

    It is not the same as before where clipping masks would look completely unclipped. This is a different glitch in the newest update. It makes it so in order to take a screenshot of a sketch, I need to close and save and open…

  7. GPU not detected

    Restarted Illustrator and suddenly it isn't detecting my GPU.

    AI Version: 25.3.1 (Tested back to 25.0.1)
    OS: Win 10 pro 64, 20H2
    GPU: RTX 3080 FE: GRD 471.11 (Tested 471.41 and more)
    CPU: Ryzen 9 5900x (No internal graphics)

    Every other Adobe application is still detecting the GPU as intended.

    I was using AI without any problem, closed it, went for lunch, came back and opened ai again. Scrubby zoom wasn't working anymore -- ai didn't detect a compatible GPU.

    Already DDU'd back to different versions, wiped ai and reinstalled different versions, reset rpeferences, turned GPU acceleration (win) on/off, gave…

  9. 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.

  10. Artwork disappears when zoomed in

    Whenever I am zooming in (2400% +), my artwork disappears and the who canvas turns gray. If I mouse over my artwork, i'll see a very pixelated outline of my artwork. I've attached a screenshot of my issue. I've tried restarting my MBP, uninstalling and reinstalling AI. I've tried closing out AI and reopening– but nothing I am doing is fixing this issue. Please help, I need to continue working on client projects.

  11. 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.

  12. Zoom not working!!!

    Neither pinch nor scroll are working correctly. I tried turning off animated zoom and it doesn't work that way either.

    Very unreliable and choppy with huge steps when it does happen to trigger.

  13. Illustrator stürzt nach Umschalten auf "Pfadansicht" ab.

    Windows 10 - Illustrator 25.3.1

    Ein Dokument in welchem ein 1px Raster mit 4 Unterteilungen angelegt wurde, bringt nach umschalten auf die Pfadansicht das Programm zum abstürzen.
    Wenn ich den Raster ausblende, funktioniert Illustrator einwandfrei.

  15. Illustrator running really slow, no GPU preview

    Hi Illustrator 25.3.1 is running horribly slow on my MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2018) / 2.2 GHz 6-Core Intel Core i7 / 32 GB 2400 MHz DDR4 / Radeon Pro 555X 4 GB - it is constantly running CPU Preview, I cannot get it to use GPU. Zoom in and out is awful to use. Illustrator is impeding my productivity. Please help.

  16. Black Boxes appear and Unable to zoom past 1600% when GPU performance is turned off in Illustrator 25.3.1

    Well, I updated illustrator today and have major viewing issues.

    Black Boxes appear when selecting outlined text with the direct selection tool, when moving a shape, and in the upper left corner when viewing artboard. Everything disappears when zooming in more than 2400% in Preview mode and has a pixelated outline.

    I am happy to share that we have fixed this bug in our latest release – 26.2.1 which is available worldwide now.

    Going forward, our goal is to fix as many top User-Voice bugs as possible and as frequently as possible. Given the nature of the fixes, some of the bugs will take a longer time to fix, but we are on it.

    You can update to the latest release using Creative Cloud desktop App: https://helpx.adobe.com/in/creative-cloud/help/creative-cloud-updates.html

    Thank you for all the feedback. Keep it coming!

  17. Wake from sleep issues

    Illustrator, since the update, when waking from sleep, or even just display sleep - has started to resize the main app window to about 2/3 height of the screen and then when transforming objects (any movement or rotation etc) the pasteboard flickers. The pasteboard also changes shade when shifting bewteen tools - again only after waking from sleep.

    It is a brand new Mac Mini, and only affects Illustrator WITHIN the window - i.e. only the pasteboard - no menus or tools etc flicker.

    Edit: I have just noticed I get same behaviour with the window resize and some flickering…

  18. Screen goes white as soon as I draw something

    As soon as I open an Illustrator document and draw or touch an object, the screen goes white. I switch between gpu and cpu rendering, nothing changes.

    M1 MBP, newest os and illustrator version, not the beta or pre version, rosetta 2 mode.

    The team is aware of a similar looking issue, where this is due to Anchor Point Size preference set to Max value. Please check if changing it from Max to any other value resolves this and comment back.

    The investigation continues to get the root cause of this preference corruption.

  19. Sharp corners of a convex curve get displayed wrong

    I've noticed on this newer version of Illustrator that some corners are showing an odd line overlap. Noticeable when zoomed in. I've attached pictures.

    It is also applying this to shapes made in older versions.

  20. 合成フォント使用時に、欧文書体のベースラインがずれる

    1. macOS Catalina 10.15.5 Mac mini (2018) プロセッサ/3.2 GHz 6コアIntel Core i7 メモリ/16 GB 2667 MHz DDR4 グラフィックス/Intel UHD Graphics 630 1536 MB

    Adobe illustrator 2021(25.2.1)

    2.問題が発生したときに実行していた手順
    和文と欧文で合成フォントを作成。
    今回は「TBゴシックstd」と「Berthold Akzidenz Grotesk」を使用。
    Berthold Akzidenz Groteskのサイズを112%、ベースラインを-2%に設定。
    テキストをアウトライン化時に発見。

    3.想定していた結果
    普通にアウトライン化される。

    4.実際の結果
    GPUプレビュー使用時に合成フォントの欧文ベースラインが正しく反映されて表示されない。
    検証したところ、フォントサイズ24ptまではベースラインの数値が反映されず0%で表示。25pt以上でズレて表示される。
    25ptで一番顕著にズレが発生し、フォントサイズが大きくなるにつれてズレ幅が少なくなっていく。
    アウトライン化すると表示からズレて、(おそらく)ベースラインに入力した数値が反映された位置でオブジェクトになる。

    入稿時などにアウトライン化する際にズレが発生するため非常に危険です。
