  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. CPU Preview defaults even for basic usage (Macbook Pro 2019)

  4. Illustrator 2021 and 2022 Zoom not working correctly after OS update to Monterey

    Like the title says, after update to Monterey.... when using Illustrator 21 or 22 when zooming into an object, either vector, tiff, eps on the document the screen goes gray about 150% to 300%. I have reset many things, GPU.... reset preferences, colors, overprint off and on.... nothing seems to correct it. This happened Only after going from Big Sur to Monterey. Attached is a screen shot at 100% zoom, then the same art at 300%. The art is all vector, that really doesn't matter, vector and images act the same when zooming. Another screen shots on another job at…

  7. 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.

  9. Secondary Jagged Stroke

    Mac OS Monterey 12.0.1
    Illustrator 26.0.1

    I have been drawing lines with the line tool and expanding and bending them using the Anchor Point Tool. Sometimes Illustrator creates a secondary line alongside my smooth one that is jagged. It is still visible if I zoom in or out but I don't think it's really there (as a vector path). It is visible in the middle of my screenshot.

  10. flickering guide lines

    In Illustrator 25.4.1 one cannot use the guides while Astute Plugins active! What did you do Adobe? While selecting objects the guide lines will appear blink think suddenly while someone click drags the mouse as long as one releases the mouse button again. While dragging objects, the guide lines will be fine, but with nothing selected, click drag will cause flickering guide lines.

  13. 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…

  14. GPU not working with Wacom when using Illustrator

    When using my Wacom Cintiq Illustrator colours de saturate and fade. When I uncheck GPU performance the problem disappears and the colours return to as they should be. But I want to use my GPU for complex artwork
    The problem does not occur on my desktop monitor only on my Cintiq.
    I am using a Mac

  15. 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.

  16. Images in clipping masks glitching and overlaying artwork when in GPU

    This is similar to previous posts but not sure if the same.. apologies if repeating. In the latest version of illustrator, images within clipping masks are glitching out and making the file impossible to work with. These glitched versions of the masked image change constantly when zooming in or out, but do not disappear as they used to when illustrator bugged out previously. see attached screenshot. The orange metal flake texture should only exist within the frame of the bicycle. The lighter orange glitchy shapes do not exist.

  17. GPU表示時、リンク画像にぼかし・クリッピングマスク・回転を実行すると表示されなくなる

    ・Mac OS Catalina 10.15.7 Illustrator 26.0.3

    ・表示/GPUでプレビュー
     アートボード上に画像ファイルをリンクで配置し、それに対し
     効果/スタイライズ/ぼかし
     適当なパスオブジェクトでクリッピングマスク
     回転ツールで回転(画像とクリッピングパス一緒に実行)

    ・想定していた結果:ぼかしとクリッピングマスクのついた
     画像ファイルが回転した状態で表示される

    ・実際の結果:画像ファイルが表示されなくなる
     なお、表示/CPUプレビュー時は想定していた通りに表示される

    ・試したこと

     OS・Illustratorが同バージョンのMac数台で同じ操作を実行
     →同じ結果になります

     効果/パスの変形/変形/角度 で回転を実行
     →同じ結果になります

     うめこみ画像に対して同じ操作を実行
     →想定していた通りの結果になります

  18. AMD Radeon Pro 580 rendering bug

    Hi, I have a 2017 iMac Retina 5k 27", 64GB RAM, Mac OS Catalina 10.15.7 with AMD Radeon Pro 580 GPU, 8Gb VRAM, driver version 01.00.931, Illustrator 25.4.1. I am getting odd effects in rendering of linear gradients where angular areas of colour appear at higher magnifications. If the GPU is turned off in Illustrator prefs the effect disappears. Please see screenshot attached showing the effect with GPU. Is there a fix for this, please?

  20. Color Bug

    When I move objects, the colors bug out. As you can see in the picture ''Bug'' , I am only using different shades of purple and the light orange that is in the background, as shown in ''Bug 2'' . All of the darker orange is not supposed to be there and they only appear when I move objects around. This continues unless I move the screen off the artwork and then go back, then it dissapears but comes back as soon as I move an object. So far I'm unable to find a solution for this, so I would…
