  1. Display wigging out when placing images

    Displaying crazy in 26.0.2. When drawing or placing images, screen goes completely white or shows a strange box with an "x". No matter where i click, the mouse click will drag from the corner of the item on the artboard, scaling it.

  3. Stroke display error when stroke is 0.001mm

    Stroke does not display correctly for very fine stroke lines on curves (for example 0.001mm). If the change the stroke to 0.1mm it displays perfectly, but when 0.001mm the appears to be large vectors filled in. There are not "really" there - it is just a display issue, but very easy to reproduce.
    Since 0.001mm is a common stroke width for Laser Cutters, this is a big problem as it is difficult to work with detailed drawings when it does not display correctly. See the attached sample for a very simple example.

  4. Canvas goes white and blue when selecting object.

    Whenever I select anything on the canvas, the entire canvas goes full white, and alternates between blue and white. Clicking anywhere on the canvas returns to the previous view, but it makes it impossible to make adjustments. I'm using Illustrator 25.0.1, on a 2019 16" MacBook Pro running macOS Big Sur. I tied reverting to 25.0.0 but the same problem occurred.

  7. 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…

  8. Live Paint bucket tool preview error

    1. Adobe Illustrator CC 2021 (25.2.1 64-bit) on Windows 10 Home Edition.

    2. After the Live Paint Bucket tool is selected, out of the 3 preview swatches above the pointer, the center one is always wrong / inverted. This bug is consistent when we press the left & right arrow keys on the keyboard to select a swatch. On the other hand, the Swatches panel would reflect the correct option when the Live Paint Bucket tool is in used.

    3. When the Live Paint Bucket tool is selected, the center swatch in the 3 preview swatches should accurately reflect the color option, just…

  10. Wake from sleep issues

    Illustrator, since the update, when waking from sleep, or even just display sleep - has started to resize the main app window to about 2/3 height of the screen and then when transforming objects (any movement or rotation etc) the pasteboard flickers. The pasteboard also changes shade when shifting bewteen tools - again only after waking from sleep.

    It is a brand new Mac Mini, and only affects Illustrator WITHIN the window - i.e. only the pasteboard - no menus or tools etc flicker.

    Edit: I have just noticed I get same behaviour with the window resize and some flickering…

  11. Zoom not working!!!

    Neither pinch nor scroll are working correctly. I tried turning off animated zoom and it doesn't work that way either.

    Very unreliable and choppy with huge steps when it does happen to trigger.

    The team is aware of a similar looking issue, where this is due to Anchor Point Size preference set to Max value. Please check if changing it from Max to any other value resolves this and comment back.

    The investigation continues to get the root cause of this preference corruption.

  13. GPU Preview not available (grayed out) after editing artboard

    With newest version of illustrator the GPU acceleration and GPU-Preview fails in some files. To test it i have created a blank document and the GPU preview works. But when I edit the artboard, the GPU preview is turned off at that moment and cannot be reactivated. Reset the Illustrator-Settings to default doesn't fix it.

  14. 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?

  16. Consistent Display Bug

    1. MacBook pro 2021, big sur 11.4
    2. version 25.3.1

    On textured illustrations or illustrations using clipping masks, solid white boxes/sometimes pixel shapes sometimes larger, will appear. Some components I can zoom close enough in that they disappear, but some sketches I would be zooming in so far as to crop the sketch before the white boxes disappear.

    It is not the same as before where clipping masks would look completely unclipped. This is a different glitch in the newest update. It makes it so in order to take a screenshot of a sketch, I need to close and save and open…

  19. Zoom w/ Command + Space Bar screen grays out

    Hi - when I zoom in close to anything in AI using Command + Space Bar I will get a grayed out background and the object is very pixelized & strange looking - see attached screenshot. This happens about 50% of the time I do this. Can you look into fixing this bug? MacOS Catalina v 10.15.7, AI 25.4.1 Thank you.

  20. "View using GPU" greyed out since Illustrator 2021

    Since we have updated to Illustrator 2021, on one of our machines (Mac mini 2018) "View unsing GPU" (CMD+E) is greyed out and can’t be activated. GPU IS activated in the Illustrator Preferences! Using Illustrator 2020, this function works as usual.

    An other glitch, that we noticed on both of our machines (the 2018 mini and a 2019 iMac): When opening a document in Illustrator 2021, the window turns black for a moment until the document is shown. This does not really cause any problems, it is just strange and does not occure with Illustrator 2020.
