    View using GPU is not working on illustrator beta 25.3 for Apple Silicon.

    (Korean)
    Apple Silicon용 일러스트레이터 25.3 베타 실행시 GPU 가속 옵션을 켤 수가 없어서 많이 느립니다.
    일러스트레이터도 어서 빨리 Apple Silicon용으로 제대로 써볼 수 있게되면 좋겠네요.

  3. 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.

    Windows 10, (v2004, build 19041.746); Illustrator 25.2 (64-bit)

  4. GPU Problem With Rules active

    real-time GPU view does not work when rulers are active. The problem has existed since the first release of Illustrator 25 and has not yet been fixed. If I create a new document without rulers everything works, when I activate the rulers the view automatically switches to CPU mode I use illustrator on an iMac Pro with mojave 10.14.6.

  5. Text edits dont show in GPU mode

    Windows 10 20H2
    Omen 15 Ryzen 7 4800, GTX 1660Ti , 16Ram
    Illustrator 2021

    On going issues since if i remember 2016 or so.

    When GPU is enabled, lots of time when i edit a textframe it wont show the updates. The textframe keeps showing old text, zooming doesnt fix it. Only thing which fixes this is either move the textframe or deactive GPU and restart illustrustrator.

    I first noticed this issue on my old Mac at the office, this cant be updated due to old OS its running. Now i still noticed it on my Windows system running 2021

  7. "View Using GPU" Greys Out Using Images with "ProPhoto RGB" Colour Profiles

    AI Version: 25.2
    OS: MacOS 11.2.1
    Using GPU Preview
    MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2018, Four Thunderbolt 3 Ports)

    Problem:
    - "View Using GPU" is visible and enabled
    - Adding linked images (in this case a JPEG) with a "ProPhoto RGB" colour profile applied to the image file will cause "View Using GPU" to become disabled and greyed out.

    Expected Behaviour:
    - Linked Images with any colour profile applied should not effect the ability to use the "View Using GPU" setting.

    Workaround:
    - Open the image in Photoshop and convert it to another colour profile like sRGB IEC61966-2.1 then save the image. …

  10. GPU se desactiva perdiendo los perfiles de color en pantalla y tampoco permite ver Ajustes de Prueba ni Colores de Prueba

    Sin motivo al parecer se cambiaron los colores de los PSD linkeados perdiendo los perfiles de color. Se cambió a CPU y no puedo volver a GPU porque aparece en gris, al igual que Ajustes de Prueba ni Colores de Prueba. Al ir al Menú Edición/Ajustes de Color aparece "Emular Adobe Illustrator 6.0". Reinicio Illustrator y al abrir cualquier documento elimina los perfiles incrustados en él.

  12. Whenever I enter Outline mode(Ctrl+Y), Illustrator turn into 'view using CPU mode

    I can reproduce this bug on my rig. Whenever I enter outline mode(Ctrl+Y), illustrator, initially using GPU to render the artwork, turn into using CPU. And it stay there even I exit the outline mode.

    • The only thing to fix it is close the file and open it again. It's getting annoying pretty quickly(part of it because 'View using CPU' performance is abysmal and sluggish. My CPU has 6 cores 12 thread, not top of the line, but not cheap model either.

    -I also found that it's not only about the outline mode that cause this, but other reason as…

  13. Illustrator 25 very low with ICC profiles other than appleRGB and sRGB

    Hi,
    Illustrator 25 and Indesign 16 are very very slow with other ICC profiles than AppleRGB and sRGB. For example, if you switch to a profile you created yourself with Eizo colour navigator, Illustrator becomes so slow that you can no longer use it reasonably. Switching to sRGB or AppleRGB is not an option because of the lack of colour binding.
    The problem also existed in Lightroom 10.1. and was fixed by the Lightroom developers in 10.2. Maybe the Illustrator teams should get together with the Lightroom teams to fix the problem.
    Here is a video showing the problem:

  14. GPU-Support fällt reproduzierbar aus

    Die GPU-Unterstützung funktioniert zunächst bei neu angelegten Dateien wie erwartet. Sobald ich das Lineal einblende oder eine Zeichenfläche verändere oder hinzufüge, fällt die GPU-Unterstützung aus und das Programm wird extrem 'laggy'. Man kann das GPU-Rendering nicht wieder aktivieren, bis man Ai neu startet. Bestehende Ai-Dateien, die eingeblendete Lineale haben oder Hilfslinien enthalten, funktionieren ebenfalls nur mit CPU-Rendering. Entfernt man hier alle Hilfslinien und blendet die Lineale aus, speichert die Datei, beendet Ai und öffnet die Datei anschließend wieder, bringt das die GPU-Unterstützung zurück. Bis man aben wieder an Lineale oder die Zeichenflächen geht – kurzes weißes Flackern, GPU-Unterstützung ist weg.…

  16. GPU Preview Disabled when Importing CMYK/RGB Vectors through CC Libraries

    In the latest version of Illustrator (25.2.1) If you try place a linked vector file through Libraries into a document that is in a different format eg. CMYK into an RGB document or RGB into a CMYK Document and it is a vector, GPU acceleration is disabled. This does not occur in Illustrator 24.

    I've tested this by opening a CMYK Document, placing a linked CMYK file and everything works as expected. If you place a linked RGB vector it will cause the GPU to stop working. The opposite works the same way, placed a linked CMYK file into an…

  19. Illustrator won't preview changes in the transparency mask until I move the art.

    I just set up a new computer this morning and this is a new problem I have not dealt with before. Any edit I make to the transparency mask in an artwork does not preview until I move the artwork. Moving the view, zooming in and out etc doesn't udpate the preview, only moving the artwork. I tried turning off my GPU performance to see if that was causing some issue but it didn't change anything.

  20. Illustrator causing red screen

    I'm using a MacBook Pro 15" , 2019 with MacOS 10.15.5 and Illustrator 24.2.

    When I open a file in Illustrator it works fine until I open a second file. When I do this, a red border appears and I cant zoom or work with the file. I tried to delete everything which is installed with Illustrator (Also the .plist files) and tried to reinstall it but the same thing is happening again. Disabling the GPU in settings does fix this issue but using Illustrator on a high-end machine without it's full GPU power is worthless.

    I also created a…
