  1. Unknown Error [PARM]

    I was starting work and clicked on Adobe Illustrator for the first time today, it immediately gave me this error and I hadn't even opened a document as yet.

    This is the first time this error has appeared for me and I do not know why.

    I closed the program and restarted it, the error didn't reoccur.

    I have a pretty new powerful PC (within a year old).

    I have attached my PC specs for reference and all programs are up to date.

    Thanks
    Heather

  4. A blank white popup window opens over a file when opening.

    Closing the window gets it out of the way & I can continue. It only happens the first time I launch AI and then open a file.

    I'm on a 2016 MacBook Pro running Catalina & Illustrator 24.0.
    Screenshot attached.

  6. Intro screen icons are not aligned

    1. The latest version of Illustrator
    2. On MacBook Pro 15" icons on launch/intro screen icons that belong to the sizes are not aligned. Should be aligned I guess. With a new update 2020 still the same issue.

  8. Glitchy screen when opening a new document

    Whenever I open a new document on illustrator, or open some existing documents, the whole screen turns red and when I try to zoom into the art-board or the document in general, it begins to glitch and white rectangles appear. I'm unable to select or move around any artwork.

  12. Have to sign in every time I launch Illustrator

    Every time I launch program, on the same computer, same day, even if only a short time has passed, I have to sign in with Adobe Cloud credentials. I've signed out of the Creative Cloud Desktop app and signed in. Still happens after first launch. Painful.

  13. Slow opening of the first document!!!

    I don't know if it happens to others, an Illustrator on a Windows machine "I would say performing, quite a lot" but this problem happens to me I think at least from the CC2018 / 2019/2020 version.

    I start the software, open a new empty document, or open an existing document (even of small, insignificant dimensions) the document takes a long time to open (it is not immediate).
    If I open a second document it opens in the right time, then it works as it should.
    The same thing happens if I close Illustrator and restart it.

    But before it…

  14. AI 24 freezes on startup (Mac OS Catalina)

    Illustrator 24 (2020) will not launch on my MacBook Pro Retina.

    1. I'm running Catalina 10.15.1 and Illustrator 2020.
    2. The applications is installed and launched
    3. I expect the app to open
    4. It freezes upon startup

    I had the same issue with InDesign 2020 freezing up (causing me to have to Force Quit the stalled app), but Photoshop 2020 did not have any issues.

    I was able to get InDesign 2020 to launch by restarting in Safe Mode, then disabling the "Show Home screen when no documents are open" Preference, then restarting normally.

    The bug seem related to not being able to…

  18. Artborads erased and layers grouped when opening a file, Illustrator 2020

    Illustrator 2020 (24.0.1), Mac OS Mojave 10.14.6

    Whenever I close a file with multiple artboards and multiple layers, and re-open it, all artboards but one are erased (and renamed to "Artboad1"), and all my layers are grouped into one single layer.

    Even when I fix the file, and save it, the next time I open it, the same thing happens.

  19. Shortcut Window doesn't auto close

    When opening Illustrator you are welcomed by the shortcut window showing previous files and most used file creation options etc.

    On Illustrator 24.0.3 and previous iterations when using the shortcut window the file opens as it should but you are left with a blank shortcut window open, which then needs to be closed. I have attached a screenshot.

    I am using an iMac with High Sierra

  20. In Legacy "File New" Interface can't change Name from Untitled-1

    On Illustrator CC 24.1.1 (64bit) on Windows 10 v1909 using the Legacy "File New" interface from the home screen on a fresh launch it is impossible to change the value of the file name. It shows as selected text, yet typing, reselecting, hitting delete and backspace all do nothing to change the text from "Untitled-1".
