  4. Allow "Welcome to Illustrator" presets to be customized to actual user presets

    When the landing or launch page for Illustrator CC2021 opens, there is a box of presets under the line "Welcome to Illustrator.

    This system will not allow a drop or upload of either an AI nor JPG screenshot...the default presets are Postcard, Letter, Common, iPhone X, HDTV 1080p and "More Presets."

    In my case, I never use any one of those presets, so I have to click "Create New" or "More Presets," which are the same outcomes, then click my way through the various options to get to "Web Large."

    It would be nice if (a) the user could enhance…

  6. System Compatibility error

    Since the recent update to version 25.2, when I launch I get an error message saying "System Compatability Report." I clicked on "fix" and followed the instructions, Intel says my drivers are up to date, yet I keep getting the same error. Files error 3 and 4 shows my operating system details.

  8. Video driver is not supported

    Windows 10
    Illustrator v 25.2
    Intel(R) HD Graphics 4600, Version 20.19.15.5171 (04.11.2020)
    What can I do? I have updated the driver, but the report is still there. Do I get instability and data loss if I suppress this report or deactivate some features in the preferences?

  9. Illustrator 25.3.1 Will Not Open

    At least two of the computers in our office are having issues with the latest Illustrator update 25.3.1. The program does not open when selecting a file and performing Open With>Adobe Illustrator 2021. The program does not open from the start menu. The program does not open directly from the Illustrator.exe file. If you try to uninstall Illustrator with Creative Cloud, it tells you that you can't because the program is open. If you go to the Task Manager with less detail, Illustrator does not show open, however, if you select more detail, you may see 14 or more processes…

  10. Recent file shows correct file but opens up as older version

    Hi there,

    I am using Illustrator 25.3 (64-bit) on Windows 10 Pro.

    When I open Illustrator and look into the 'recent' panel I see the document I was working on yesterday with all the changes I made (picture 1), but when I click on it, it opens what seems to be an older version of the document and all the changes I made during the day yesterday just disappear (photo2, note the few pages and other changes not showing).

    I know I saved during the day yesterday (as it took a long time to save every time) and clearly remember…

  12. Workspaces don't load when CC updates

    Every time CC updates AI, my custom workspaces don't work. Either:
    a) the toolbar on the right side of the screen doesn't load at all, and going to the Window menu and clicking on the palettes I want shows them checked but they don't show up, or
    b) the right toolbar shows up collapsed, but clicking on the palette's icon does not open it up. I have to expand the entire toolbar to use the palettes.
    This is really annoying, especially since it happens every single time AI updates. Sometimes quitting and reloading AI fixes the problem; other times I…

  17. Operation cannot complete because of an unknown error. [CANT] - Crashes and will not open application

    Illustrator 24.2 and 24.2.1
    Windows 10 Home

    I've been getting the following error since version 24.2 but was still able to open and do work.

       The operation cannot complete because of an unknown error. [CANT]
    

    Yesterday I chose to update to 2.2.1 thinking it might fix that error. Now I cannot open Illustrator at all. I am not an IT person, but I have already tried the following to fix it but to no avail:

    -Restarting my machine multiple times.
    -Uninstalling and reinstalling Illustrator with options
    -Uninstalling and reinstalling Illustrator with remove options
    -Going back to an earlier version
    -Allowing…

  19. "What's new" reminder will not stop appearing every time I start Illustrator.

    the 'see what's new' reminder in the upper right will not stop appearing every time I start Illustrator. Deleting preferences doesn't help. Clicking remind later is getting to be annoying.
