  2. 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.

  3. GPU acceleration issue

    Adobe Illustrator have problem with GPU acceleration.

    Some of part of screen disapeared when move object.

    BUG tested on graphics card:

    GTX 1660
    RTX 3060 TI
    RTX 3080 TI
    Laptop Dell Latitude 5420 with Intel Iris Xe Graphics.

    Problem occurs on 2 situations:

    When trim view is enabled,
    When project have many object.
    Watch the attached movie.

    I think this is global problem which which affects all users.
    Tested on different AI versions.
    I think this bug occurs many, many time earlier.

  5. images with opacity masks not appearing in GPU preview with Trim View on

    Some images with opacity masks not appearing in GPU preview with Trim View on. They appear all the time in CPU preview, but disappear again when switch back to GPU preview. See screen shots: first is GPU preview in Trim View., second is GPU preview normal.

  6. Illustrator crash and spikes GPU (3080ti) requesting more VRAM than usual error code 6 with pid=263

    Hello,
    Details of your operating system: Windows 11 Pro Version 10.0.22000
    The version of Adobe Illustrator (desktop) : 26.5
    I work with high-amount data content and AI keeps crashing randomly, on a stable high end station with 12900k, 32GB of RAM and a 3080ti. 

    To reproduce the issue:

    I work with these rather heavier files up to a point
    the whole PC stalls and freezes, (inclusively desktop and any app), mouse can't be moved, no input can be taken.
    After a few seconds or 1+ minute, i hear the sound stuttering (if i was playing music during the crash)
    then…

  8. Direct selection tool appears to move whole object until mouse release

    When part of an object is selected using the direct selection tool (selection tool and holding 'V' key down) the whole object appears to move to the new position until the mouse is released, at which point all the unselected points snap back to their original position. I'm assuming this is a bug and not intended?

  9. ダイレクト選択ツールでクローズパスからセグメントコピーでプレビューに残像が残る

    ダイレクト選択ツールでクローズパスからセグメントをコピーするとプレビューに残像が残ってしまいます。
    過去のバージョンでは長年、このような表示やプレビューの残存はありませんでした。改善してもらえませんでしょうか?

    動画が50M以上はアップできなかったので下記URLをご参考ください
    動画URL→ https://youtu.be/ZwOtmr2Ju9g

    1. Windows10 Adobe Illustrator 27.0
    2. クローズパスのダイレクト選択ツールでセグメントをクリックしてAlt(Option)を押したまま真横にマウスドラックでコピー
    3. 元のクローズパスのシェイプは固定表示されたまま、アウトライン表示でドラックしているパスをリアルタイム表示、クリックを離した瞬間選択中のパスのセグメントが抜き取られるようにコピー完了、プレビューの残像は残らない(過去のIllustratorバージョンの通常の表示を期待していた)
    4. 残像が残ってパスをコピーする元になるクローズパスは変形プレビューされてしまい、プレビュー画面で残像が残る

  10. Jagged artefacts on edges of objects with gradient fills or transparency

    Revisiting a Logo Artwork that I did last year (created using V.24x), the artwork has now changed ... there are jagged lines around the edges of shapes that were filled with transparency gradients. (see pic 1) This is not due to any extra nodes; the underlying geometry is the same (see pic 2).
    If I use 'Flatten Transparency' it solves the jagged lines, but adds extra 'blocks' in the corners (see pic 3). This is not something that used to happen.
    This is not multiple objects stacked, so can't Ungroup and it isn't a compound path so I can't Release.

  11. Shadow rendering

    So, I did something around 3d and I come into an interesting bug when I do a V-ray. Those ugly patchy things are there if any scenario, and after reinstalling. They show when I move, when I export and all that jazz. Any idea why this is happening?

  12. Swatch & Tool Names don't appear when I pause/hover the cursor over them.

    MacOs Monterey 12.0.1
    Adobe Illustrator 26.2.1

    When you hover over a swatch or tool & leave the cursor there for a second, the name of the swatch/tool always showed along with keyboard shortcuts for many of the tools.

    I was searching the Pantone colors & two colors came up. Rather than just one quick step, I had to do several.

    What should happen:
    I hover the cursor over the colors for a second to see which was which. Then I pick the one I was looking for.

    What happens now:
    I hover the cursor over the colors & nothing shows…

  13. Color change with the CPU/GPU overview with an external display

    Hello, I am on a 14" MacBook Pro. 2021

    On the MacBook screen the rendering change (CPU/GPU) does not change the color and everything works fine.

    However on an external screen the GPU rendering gives bad color (often distorted and duller), by activating the CPU rendering the color becomes normal on the external screen.

    In GPU rendering on the external screen for example, the dropper does not pick up the right color (its link images).

    On the other hand, once the color has been cut in CPU rendering, we can put back the GPU rendering (the colors become desaturated) but…

  14. 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.

  15. 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…

  16. 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…

  17. 透明部分を含むグレースケールモードのPSDファイルを配置するとGPUプレビューできない。

    オペレーティングシステム macOS 10.15.6(imac20,1 32GBmem/1TBSSD/AMD Radeon Pro 5300_4GB)
    Illustrator CC ver.25.2.3

    問題が発生したときに実行していた手順
    1. CMYKドキュメントをGPU表示で編集中に透明部分を含むグレースケールモードのPSDファイルを配置する。
    2. GPUプレビューからCPUプレビューに切り替わり、以降、Illustratorを再起動するまでそのドキュメントでは先程の配置画像を除去してもGPUプレビュー表示に戻せない。

    想定していた結果
    GPU表示が正しく機能する。

    実際の結果
    CPU表示に強制的に切り替わってしまい、GPUプレビュー表示に出来ない。

    RGBモードのドキュメントではこの症状は発生しません。透明部分を含む画像形式であっても他の形式ではこの問題は発生しません。また、Windowsでは起きないとの報告を受けています。

  20. Illustrator 2022 GPU Preview freezes on file load/zoom/switch with RTX 2060 and RTX 3060

    Illustrator 2022 (26.2.1) freezes for up to 5 minutes when GPU Preview is enabled on file load, zoom, switch. The CPU usage rises to 99% during the freeze and a system level interruption is observed at the end of the freeze that lasts up to 10 seconds. A memory leak takes place after every freeze even after all files are closed. Only closing Illustrator entirely releases de the abnormally allocated memory. CPU Preview is not affected by this.

    The tested systems are:

    Setup 1:

    Windows 11 64-bit, 21H2, 22000.652
    Intel Core i7-9700F
    32 GB RAM - DDR4-2666 - Dual Channel…
