  2. CPU and GPU preview aren't working correctly

    This is the difference I have while viewing through CPU or GPU. The correct en smooth view is CPU and the other GPU. I never had this problem before with illustrator until a month ago but then again only with DXF files. Now it also jumped into my regular files.. I can't visualy snap lines to each other because they appear to be off but when viewing with CPU they aren't. How can this problem still be there, I saw messages appearing from 2018 with the same reports... Also attached my mac's specs.
    Please let me know how to solve…

  4. Clipping mask for a layer doesn’t move when dragged in real-time render mode

    If you move art with its layer-level clipping mask, Ai will draw it as if you move the art without the clipping mask. See the GIF attached.

  5. 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…

  6. Document grid with dots fails to render clean pixels. GPU/CPU rendering differs.

    The dotted document grid renders differently between CPU and GPU modes. None of the alternatives renders perfect pixels in the selected grid color.

    CPU renders vertically lighter smeared dots.
    GPU renders horizontally smeared dots.

    See attached screenshots.

    This may relate to another bug report i've posted:

  7. 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?

  9. Coordinates not showing in Overprint Preview

    On Intel Macs running Monterey (Issue does not appear to happen on Apple Silicon Macs), with the GPU Performance turned off the coordinates do not show when dragging an anchor point. If GPU Performance is turned on it does work but only in Outline View.

    Steps to Reproduce
    1. Create blank file, have GPU Performance turned off
    2. Drag to create a new square object
    3. Turn GPU Performance on and change to Outline View
    4. Drag to create a new square object (Coordinates now show in Outline View)
    5. Change to Overprint Preview
    6. Drag to create a new…

  12. BUG GPU preview clips top of outlined text

    In the current version if Illustrator, 26 we have noticed a bug in GPU preview.
    Tops of letters, or shapes appear to be clipped at an angle. This is not present in a PDF created from the same file and goes away when switching to CPU preview. Can be recreated with any file and also on Mac running current Illustrator version as well.

  14. 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…

  18. 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…

  19. 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…

  20. bounding box off centered or not aligned to object correctly

    The bounding box is off centered on my objects. I have all of the "Snap to.." options off, Preview bounds is off and I do not have any of the "align to pixel grid" options on. I created a new file and did a random rectangle and it is still off, but not as severe on the file that I am working on. I did try the "Reset bounding box" option and nothing changed. The screenshots are all objects without a stroke. I am on a Mac. I don't see this problem on the PC.
