  2. Illustrator öffnet nicht richtig

    Betriebssystem: MacOS Version 11.0.1
    Ai: Version: 25.2

    Nach dem Öffnen von Illustrator (auch InDesign) erscheint nur das schwarze Feld und nicht die sonstige Bedienoberfläche. Auch das Öffnen mancher Dateien ist nicht möglich. Außerdem kann ich weder in Illustrator noch in InDesign eine neue Datei erstellen.

    While launching Adobe Illustrator, a window appears warning of an unsupported video driver although the exported report (txt-file) does not show any problem. All drivers are up-to-date.

    I am happy to share that we have fixed this bug in our latest release – 25.2.3 which is available worldwide now.

    Going forward, our goal is to fix as many top User-Voice bugs as possible and as frequently as possible. Given the nature of the fixes, some of the bugs will take a longer time to fix, but we are on it.

    You can update to the latest release using Creative Cloud desktop App: https://helpx.adobe.com/in/creative-cloud/help/creative-cloud-updates.html

    Thank you for all the feedback. Keep it coming!

  5. After the newest update, when opening the software; the screen is coming up black every time.

  6. Font agent 9.6.1

    OS 10.13.6 High Sierra [don't want to upgrade OS yet]
    Illustrator 24.3
    Every time I open a file I get an error messgae saying that my 2015 plug ins need upgrading. Click to upgrade. I don't have 2015 plug ins. Suggestion from font agent is to upgrade Illustrator, can't do that as I don't want to upgrade OS.
    Solution dismiss error message every time, really tedious.
    What else can I do?

  7. Illustrator 2021 25.1 not opening files

    macOS Big Sur 11.1, Illustrator 25.1

    Double-clicking .ai files in finder launch Illustrator but the actual files do not open. If I drag the files to the Illustrator dock icon(after Illustrator is open) it will open one of the files (trying to open 8 files), then try thru open in File menu and select all 8 files, open a few of them.

    This did not happen until this last update.

  8. Verification

    I just paid for, and downloaded a new illustrator app three days ago and it's already not working, when I opened the app this morning it asked to verify me, so I added my email, password , it asked for phone number, verified that , no problem. Yet, once it was all done , a blank window with a loading symbol kept popping up every 4 seconds or so for hours, when I try to close the windows my entire app shuts down, I tried everything there is.. but I can't even uninstall the app. I'm really helpless here and…

  13. Adobe apps won't open ; shows gray screen

    All of my Adobe apps (ie. Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign) won't open when I try to launch them. They all just open a blank gray page (screenshot attached). The only way I can use the apps is to open a previous file with the .ai, .PSD, etc. file type. How do I resolve this? Is it a bug or virus?

  15. Empty home screen

    When I open adobe illustrator, NOTHING shows up on my home screen. The only thing I can do is create "new from template." I've reinstalled the app, but the bug still persists. Please help ASAP.

    Attached is a screenshot of the bug.

  16. Illustrator freezes as soon as it opens

    Each time I try to open the program it freezes as soon as it launches. The screen will load, but remains unresponsive.
    I'm on a windows computer that runs far more demanding programs than this without issue.
