  2. Modalità contorno

    ho problemi con la modalità contorno. Quando la attivo, Illustrator mi mostra sempre l'anteprima (sia con CPU che con GPU) anche se la modalitrà controno risulta effettivamente attiva. Ho controllato anche le impostazioni del documento su "imposta documento", ma la voce "mostra immagini con metodo contorno" è comunque disattiva. Inoltre quando risulta attiva, anche se non lo è veramente, non riesco a muovermi all'interno del documento e praticamente si "fissa" finchè non attivo nuovamente la modalità anteprima.

  3. Certain shapes make illustrator change from GPU to CPU. Can't change back until a fresh reinstall.

    I created this glass effect on my laptop and exported it to drive to download onto my PC. It opens normally with GPU preview but it switches to CPU if I zoom into my work. After some experimenting I found out it's only because of my shapes that create the glass effect. It affects both my laptop and PC. Laptop uses 1660 Max Q, not intergrated graphics.

    It also affects other files (not consistent), that I open at the same time. Other files that are affected can't be changed back to GPU preview despite reopening the files individually. PC restart…

  5. Illustrator suddenly switching to CPU preview, GPU preview greyed out

    My little research has shown that the preview mode changes when zooming if the cmyk document contains cmyk images. In a cmyk document with rgb images or an rgb document with rgb/cmyk images, there is no gpu to cpu preview switching when zooming. To reproduce the bug, the document must include multiple images in order to impact performance during scaling. My system: i5 8400, 32 Gb, GTX1650 with latest Studio Driver installed, Asus PA329C, windows 11 Build 22621.1265, Illustrator 27.3.1 Here's what it looks like on my system.

  8. Active GPU renders incorrect

    Though marked compatible, the AMD Radeon Vega II does not render Illustrator art work correctly. In this case a Compound Path (see what happens to the top of the letters B DIR), without GPU and with GPU.

    I am on MacOS Monery 12.6 / Ai 27.2

  9. GPU preview crashes after a few minutes

    After a few minutes with an open file the screen flashes white and GPU preview support goes away. The GPU preview is greyed out. Interestingly I don't need to restart Illustrator, I just need to shut the file down an re-open it then GPU preview is back. The files affected have embedded images within them. I have an Nvidia 3080ti graphics card with an AMD 5950x running latest versions of illustrator (happens with the beta too though it did seem to last longer before the white flash) all drivers and os up to date.. Nothing to do with outline mode…

  10. Grey rendering/latency issues MAC Ventura

    since updating my MAC to Ventura I have been experiencing what seems to be graphics issues on Illustrator.

    I am able to move the cursor over these grey areas which begins to erase them, however the next time I move positions more grey areas appear.

  12. pattern swatches using raster artwork creating glitch

    I am using a mac studio, M1 Max chip, Ventura 13.1, and Illustrator 27.1.1. Issue occurs when using GPU view.

    I use pattern swatches extensively in my work to create a digital foil effect. My pattern swatches are made from raster images placed into Illustrator. I have been using this for years with no problem and am only experiencing this problem since upgrading my computer and my software.

    When I move artwork that uses the pattern swatches, splotches of my pattern appear in my document, sometimes even on my artboard covering my artwork.

    This directly interferes with my workflow.

  13. Crazy rays produced when selecting a path with many anchor points

    When selecting a path with lots of anchor points (1000+) I've been getting crazy rays bursting from the path in all directions in a huge multitude of colors. It's been happening for about a 2 months now. Mainly happens when using group selection tool. All functionality and visibility of the art is lost when this happens and I need to deselect all art in order to carry on. I've attached some images of what the screen looks like when this happens.

  14. The top of my screen is glitching out whenever I open Ai ver 27.1.1

    I have attached two images but the top of my screen moves around with these small dots and strange green glitches whenever i move the mouse or do anything. The whole software is being really buggy too.

  15. When working with hi-res Black and White Bitmaps Illustrator goes to CPU preview disabling GPU Animated / Scrubby Zoom.

    When using hi-res BW bitmaps, 'Scrubby Zoom' or 'Animated Zoom' disables itself even if it's enabled in preferences. This happens after roughly 1 or 2 seconds after opening a file with this kind of images. The window goes from CMYK/Preview mode to CMYK/CPU mode as if it was in Separations Preview or CPU preview, even though it wasn't set to either of those. View>View Using GPU becomes grayed out so I can't go back.

    This bug is happening on a file with 2 1200dpi bitmap 5"x5" (embedded and/or linked), each under 1MB in size, making the Illustrator file 3MB total,…

  16. Effekt Transformieren

    Ich erstelle gerade Seamless Pattern. Eigentlich sollte der Effekt eine Kachelung ohne Fugen erstellen. Tut er aber nicht. Es entsteht jedes mal eine Fuge zwischen den einzelnen Kacheln. Und diese Fuge sollte nicht da sein

  17. Greyed out when view by GPU (Apple Silicon)

    On Mac with Apple Silicon, images greyed out when choosing View by GPU and the colours are not accurate, and only display correctly when viewed by CPU.

  18. 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.

  19. Blend snaps back when you move an object

    When you move one of the objects after having created a blend, the new position doesn't stay. Instead the blend snaps back and the outline of the object stays in the new position. Described in this thread with videos:

  20. Alt+Drag Duplicate is not working correctly

    When you use ALT and Drag to duplicate Objects, the duplicating is canceled if you release the ALT-key before you release the Mouse Button.

    Also, if you release the Alt, but don't move the mouse, the original one will be still visible, but it will disappear after you release the mouse button (or move the mouse). So, the Illustrator leads you to assume that the Object will be duplicated, but it actually wont. See the attached GIF.

    In every other App that has the same functionality that I have used the duplicating will continue even if I release the Alt…
