  2. 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.

  3. 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…

  4. 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.

  5. 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

  7. GPU issues with certain graphics cards and Mac updates

    So after a lot of time spent on chat and phone with Adobe. It seems that I am unable to use v25.4.1 or v26 in GPU mode unless I upgrade to Monterey.

    However Monterey is in its infancy. I'm not taking the risk of upgrading yet.

    My machines both have the same GPU redraw issues, where images within clipping masks create echoed glitches of themselves across the screen. this disappears when GPU mode is turned off.

    CPU mode in Illustrator is so sluggish it's pretty much unworkable.

    Adobe informs me this is NOT an Adobe issue, it is an issue…

  8. Magnifying screen redrawing flaws

    In Illustrator 2022, when I zoom in, the screen turns black and my artwork only redraws the portions where I hover the mouse, as if the display was defective.

  9. GPU Performance Glitches Still Not Fixed!! 2021

    GPU Performance glitches have been constantly and extremely annoying while displaying many files, it shows weird patterns from the same opened file overlaying the designs, and they randomly change and break while zooming in and out, sometimes I can't see how my design looks like because of these glitches, it is so serious, it makes the app sometimes next to useless!!

    Please, this problem has been there for a long, please fix, please fix

    I have tried the same files on 2 different machines, same issue

  10. 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…

  12. 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.

  13. Colors not displaying correctly in Illustrator 25.2.1

    Colors are displaying brighter and incorrectly in CMYK color mode. I've color calibrated my monitor; restarted my computer; uninstalled/reinstalled Illustrator and still all files pulled into Illustrator are displaying this way.

    Mac Big Sur 11.2.3 Illustrator 25.2.1

    I have had trouble with a corrupted preference file in the past, but I also tried deleting the file and reinstalling with no change. I've uploaded a screen shot of how the colors are displaying.

  14. GPU preview goes away and won't come back

    I have been working on illustrator files containing vector & linked images, which have been used often in different files in the past. The ai file opens in CPU preview and cannot return to GPU.
    I tried copying images from the CPU preview file to a new blank GPU preview file. While pasting an image, the preview turns to CPU. Even if the image is deleted, the preview does not return back to GPU. Same test with another artwork and another jpg.

  15. Strange fake rough approximated outlines around the shapes.

    Hi guys. I'm found this weird bug which completely ruined the possibility to display the projects to client. Look at the color Screenshot - do you see these strange rough aproximation lines, darker then main background? When i'm switched to the Outline view - i see the clean outline.
    This bug is visible when i'm using the transparency for this object.
    I've also added an Ai File with this bug.

  16. GPU preview

    If I use rulers the GPU preview switches back to CPU and the Illustrator slow down.
    If I switch off the rulers and open again the GPU preview will OK.

  18. AMD Ryzen 7 PRO 4750U Radeon GPU not recognized (but works in Premiere, Lightroom)

    Illustrator does not use the GPU (Setings->Performance says "Compatible GPU not available", even though below the device is listed under "GPU Details".

    However, all other Adobe CC apps (Lightroom, Premiere) do recognize and use the GPU without any problems.

  19. GPU Performance is deeply broken - UI overlay refresh issue

    Within about 20-30 min of starting illustrator with GPU Performance enabled, everything goes haywire.

    It seems to be an issue with UI overlays such as art board bounding boxes and shape paths/points. As you pan about or adjust a shape, it seems that old overlays are not disposed and new overlays are just drawn on top resulting in layers and layers of overlays. The overlays are cleared if you zoom but when you start to pan or manipulate shapes again, the overlays continue to populate on screen.

    Images attached should illustrate the issue better then I can describe it. What…

  20. Views not updating, tabs not updating.

    Views will simply stop updating in Illustrator. Outline view shows geometry that does not display in GPU preview mode.

    Similarly, when changing from document tab to tab, the window will "freeze" on one document and refuse to show the newly-selected document.

    None of this is remotely acceptable. I pay for and use the Adobe Suite as a professional tool, and I can't have daily failures. Trust in your products is swiftly eroding.

    Please advise a quick and permanent fix for these issues.
