  1. 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.

  2. 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. Can't Install or Launch ANY version of AI 2020 after the 24.2 update

    On Tuesday (6/16), I updated Illustrator 2020 to version 24.2. I launched it and created a document just fine. Then, Wednesday morning when attempting to launch, I received two different error messages, see below. I have uninstalled and re-installed every version of 2020 now and see the same error messages when I try to open it. I need to have 2020 AND 2019 both on my computer due to a plug-in for a die-cutting plotter (Graphtec plotter; software is Cutting Master 4) that doesn't have an update for AI 2020 available yet. Please help. I am the only designer at…

  5. 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.

  10. When I open Illustrator files the screen is filled with black and grey lines.

    I have been working on a project on illustrator and after a few days of working on it I open the file to see this screen filled with gray and black lines. None of the options on the top are visible and all the tools and properties windows are missing.

    Windows 10 Pro - Illustrator 24.1.2

    I tried opening the file from the illustrator menu, from file explorer and tried creating a new .ai file as well.

    I expected to resume working on my project.

    The screen was filled with black grey and white lines and I couldn't find any…

  12. new project presets not appearing

    I am starting a course to learn Adobe Illustrator. However, when I click on "create new" the dialogue box that opens only populates with Adobe Stock templates. No matter if I click print, web, or mobile there are no presets or options for me to change the project settings. Kind of hard to begin the course if I can't create a project with the specific setting for my assignments.

  15. 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".

  16. 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…

  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
