  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  5. 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?

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. The GPU preview renderer glitches out on distortion meshes when the canvas is rotated.

    See title, really. It might just be on distortion meshes inside of clipping masks; that's where I found it and I didn't bother checking for any further details.

  11. Path render error

    See screenshot. All I did was add opacity to a path and it renders it like this. Happens all the time since I updated.

  12. 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.

  13. Weird neon pink image of straight horizontal lines while creating new symbol

    As I was making a new symbol, I had another tab open of a house I was creating and in the midst of making such my laptop went blank showing some weird neon pink image of straight horizontal lines, and then it went blank and then after that my laptop restarted. It was only after I reported the bug to apple I realized looking back at my other tab on illustrator that the original image I was using for practice on illustrator got really messed up and can't use now.

  15. GPU Performance Glitches Still Not Fixed!! 2021

    GPU Performance glitches have been constantly and extremely annoying while displaying many files, it shows weird patterns from the same opened file overlaying the designs, and they randomly change and break while zooming in and out, sometimes I can't see how my design looks like because of these glitches, it is so serious, it makes the app sometimes next to useless!!

    Please, this problem has been there for a long, please fix, please fix

    I have tried the same files on 2 different machines, same issue

  16. UI labels smear and the canvas is not fully updated

    Hello everyone!
    When I have to move an edge of a shape with the direct selection tool, on the right side of the screen this happens. Plus that it doesn't show the X and Y pixels where the edge belongs. I don't know if it's because of my laptop (Ryzen 7 4700U with AMD Radeon Graphics) Please let me know because it's kinda annoying, thank you so much!

    I searched for it, it's a smart guide's bug, in case I can help you :)

  17. The artboard names and numbers dissapeared in 25.4.1

    I can still see the grey box in the top left corner of the artboards, but the names and numbers are gone. It started when I updated Illustrator to 25.3.1. I thought the issue would be solved in this new update but it is still there

  18. 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…

  19. 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.

  20. pattern glitch

    When moving an object with a pattern fill, I get these streaks and the lag is TERRIBLE. This also happens when editing a pattern as well.

    I'm working on a new iMac with an M1 chip. So far my Adobe programs run very slowly... not the upgrade I thought I'd be making.

    Please fix the pattern interface.
