  1. 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.

  2. Measurement labels is not showing properly (Smart Guide)

    Hello,

    I found a bug that is not showing measurement labels properly on a specific environment.

    in Windows 10 Pro Korean,
    English version of Illustrator CC is not showing measurement labels properly (it just shows a narrow gray box, no text at all inside of the box).

    When I install Korean version of Illustrator CC, it shows the measurement labels properly. I think this causes because of the font issues or Windows local system.

    I hope this bug is going to be fixed as soon as possible.

    Thanks

  4. "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…

  5. 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 :)

  7. 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:

  8. 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.

  11. 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.
