  2. GPU preview = poor quality in 22.1

    Image quality is poor with GPU performance activated in 22.1: lines appear too thick, anchor points are left on screen when they should have cleared, random artifacts appear on screen for no apparent reason. Solution is either deactivated GPU performance (not acceptable) or toggling to CPU preview on every document every single time the document is opened (also not acceptable). Please work on a fix for this before releasing 22.1 to the public.

  5. Scrubby Zoom - GPU View greyed out

    I'm unable to toggle GPU Preview.

    This is a new concern since I was able to toggle it on/off a few weeks ago.

  6. Animated zoom bug (workspace flickers and turns black when in a group)

    1. Windows 11 (latest)
    2. Illustrator 28.3
    3. The screen flickers and turns black using Animated Zoom within a group. If I exit the group (using escape), the screen returns to normal. Animated Zoom works normally as long as I am not within a group.

    The video I've uploaded shows me double-clicking a group to enter it, then using Animated Zoom to produce the flickering and black screen. I hit escape to exit the group, and the screen returns to normal. I then demonstrate that Animated Zoom works correctly when not within the group.

    Thanks

  7. Blend in CMYK color mode and GPU preview = MOIRE

    In CMYK mode the blend option looks really terrible with GPU preview. With these settings the Blend hets a jaggy moire effect.

    Tested in different color modes with CPU and GPU preview. Only CMYK on GPU produces this nasty screen effect, see screenshots. I work mostyl in CMYK mode so I hope this can be fixed rapidly.

    macOS 14.1.1 / Adobe Illustator 2024 v28.0

    I'm sure this bug affects Illustrator v27.x too.

  9. Blend snaps back when you move an object

    When you move one of the objects after having created a blend, the new position doesn't stay. Instead the blend snaps back and the outline of the object stays in the new position. Described in this thread with videos:

  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).

  11. 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…

  12. Path render error

  15. 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.

  16. Illustrator Background Flickering

    Hey all.... I'm getting a very annoying flickering background in illustrator CC 25.2.3 as I roll the cursor around.

    It stops when I turn off GPU performance but I'd ideally like to have the best performing Ai as possible...other wise what's the point ey?

    MBP spec:

    10.15.7

    MacBook Pro (16-inch, 2019)
    2.3 GHz 8-Core Intel Core i9
    64 GB 2667 MHz DDR4

    AMD Radeon Pro 5500M 8 GB
    Intel UHD Graphics 630 1536 MB

    Very Annoying as this MBP is brand new

    Anyone had the same thing?

  17. GPU preview replaced by CPU permanently

    Mojave 10.14.6 / Ill version 25.2.1 / GPU Performance Activated / AMD Radeon Pro 570X
    The ai file opens in CPU preview and cannot return to GPU. Colours seem altered, very vivid. That happens to all files with linked images! I worked as ususal, can't remember if any update run.
    I have downgraded Illustrator to 25.2, & Photoshop to 22.2 and problem was not fixed.

  18. AI loses GPU support when using rulers or accessing grouped elements

    Hello @ Adobe!
    Both of my macs (Big Sur, latest updates) show the same reproducible bug with Adobe Ai Version 25 (incl. 25.2): GPU support works just fine when I open a new document and start from scratch. Turning on Rulers or accessing grouped elements by double click instantly turns off GPU support wich I cannot turn back on. After that Ai responds slowly and overall it’s no pleasure to work with. To fix this I need to make sure that in a document all rulers and guides are switched off/deleted. With these measures I can reopen the document and…

  19. New Illustrator 2020 laggy and slow on the simplest of tasks

    Illustrator 2020 is really laggy and slow, only when completing simple tasks like colour picking, moving art-boards, selecting different objects, or even just wanting to zoom in or out.

    General slowness on using Illustrator on Mac is one of the major issues reported in this thread. Illustrator team made significant progress in replacing Illustrator’s GPU rendering engine from OpenGL to macOS Native Metal Rendering Engine – https://developer.apple.com/metal/.
    We have observed common operations like Zoom, Pan, and rendering operations are now smoother in cases where it was sluggish as reported in this thread. We urge Mac users to try the Illustrator Beta build with Metal support and share your feedback.
    Please note, this may not address other performance issues reported in this thread not related to rendering like File Save, Export, or slowness in any particular feature.

    This build is available in Illustrator Prerelease Download Section – https://www.adobeprerelease.com/beta/85A6F544-2705-49BD-8314-DD549C6A1713

  20. multi-GPU setups cause Illustrator to glitch out and become unresponsive

    I've got a two-GPU computer. If I'm using GPU preview mode, after working for a while (around 20-30 mins or more), the entire Illustrator UI will glitch out and become very artifact-y and unresponsive, and I can no longer work on the files I've got open, necessitating a restart of the app.

    This started happening right after I upgraded from one GPU to two, about a year ago. It happens only in GPU preview mode, not CPU. I've tried updating GPU drivers, updating Illustrator itself--nothing fixes the problem. I've seen other people online with multi-GPU setups say the same thing…
