    From the looks of it it seems to be crashing with GPU. Here is what I can suggest
    1. TEST: Disable GPU from preference panel and then create a anew document to see if it still crashes
    2. FIX: Update GPU driver – each manufacturer will have a different way to get and install drivers. some help here: https://helpx.adobe.com/illustrator/kb/illustrator-gpu-performance-driver-update.html

    3. IF NOTHING WORKS: Please get in touch with us at any of the other support channels – https://helpx.adobe.com/support.html . Since this is not a generic issue that we can reproduce at our end, we will need someone to look into your machine to figure out what is going on here.

  2. Static screen

    Can you fix the new update of adobe illistrator? I can't use it. Every time I try to create a new file it shows the lines of something similar to a static screen and I'm not able to use it for anything. I really need to be able to use this program for college.

  3. Illustrator CC v23.0.1 STILL not showing files that were opened by launching program

    This has been an issue that I've experienced for well over a year now and was reported to have been fixed with version 23.0.1, but I updated to that version several months ago and am still to this day experiencing this issue. If you don't already have Illustrator open and launch the program by double-clicking an AI file (or choosing "Edit in Adobe Illustrator" when right-clicking on a link in InDesign), the document in question does not appear to be open and additional attempts to open said file result in either nothing or a dialog box telling you the file…

  4. Illustrator CC 2019 (v23.0.3) will not open files and immediately crashes when trying to do so.

    I've been trying to work on both .ai and .eps files in Illustrator but it won't open them. It just crashes immediately when trying to do so. Is this a common occurrence with this version? Is there a new update coming soon?

    This is an issue that is hindering work severely. I would appreciate anyone's insight on this.

    I'm running...

    Illustrator CC 2019 (v23.0.3)

    Windows 10 Pro
    i7-6850k @ 3.60GHz
    32GB RAM
    GTX 1080 - Driver v418.91

    Thanks

  5. Opening and previewing files

    After launch, Illustrator appears to mix documents/archives. For instance, I have an .ai and a .jpg file. Each one's preview appears switched. When opened, both show the same object.

    Illustrator also shows an erros doing undo, often skipping several steps and reseting the document close to its previously saved/original version.

    Illustrator version: 23.0.3
    OS: Mac OS Mojave 10.14.4

  8. Illustrator and InDesign take forever to load

    Since 'upgrading' to CC2019, it takes about 5-8 minutes for Illustrator to open after the splash screen appears, during which time the task manager shows it using 0.8MB RAM and 0% CPU. InDesign won't even show the splash screen until after Illustrator has opened, then it takes a few minutes after the process appears, using very little in the way of resources. The total system usage at this time, for all applications, is between 8 and 34% RAM and up to about 25% CPU. Older versions did not have this problem. I have this problem on multiple systems, the weakest…

  9. Illustrator will not open a second file from Bridge, or In Design (edit original)

    ex. Starting with both Illustrator and Bridge closed. 1. I open Bridge. 2. I double-click an Illustrator file, it opens fine. 3. I go back to Bridge and double-click another illustrator file, and Illustrator will not open it. This file should open as a new file (tab) within Illustrator.
    This happens with "Edit in Original" from In Design also. It works the first time, (opens up Illustrator), but not a second time. I have to close Illustrator for this interoperability to work.

  11. intro page won't disappear

    Opening Illustrator 2019, I see the intro page with my recent work. I click to open it, and it seems to "think" the document is open - I can see my un-embedded layers panel full - but the intro page won't disappear. I can't close it, the arrow next to the AI icon won't collapse it, and I can't work without quitting the app and trying to reopen again. Does the same thing whether I open from the Finder or from the Intro page. MacPro 2012 (5,1) upgraded CPU and GPU (NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 - flashed). I realize it's…

  12. Stop update popup

    Whenever I open CC 2018 I get a big popup in the right corner with "update now" etc. No way to turn it off immediately. I have updated! I am using the older version for a reason. It happens every time I open 2018 now.

  13. Illustrator crashing wheen trying to open any document

    illustrator crashes as soon as i open it, I resently uppdated windows to 1809 and i have the latest illustrator updates. I tried diffrent ways to uninstall and remove both CC and illustrator with CC-cleaner and by following instructions on how to delete illustrator completly and reinstalling it again with no diffrence in result (still crashing). I cant say that my computer is the latest or the strongest but it worked for the first week then suddenly it started crashing.

    I do have one suggestion – please reset preferences and try again. Found the following in your crash report.

    terminating with uncaught exception of type dvacore::filesupport::eof_error: Error reading past end of file: ‘/Users/bradharris/Library/Preferences/Adobe Illustrator 22 Settings/en_US/WSMgrCfg/WSMgrCfg’

  16. Illustrator 2018 Version 22.1 Opening multiple-page PDF - Artboard Issue

    Opened multiple-paged PDF file to show all pages as artboards
    Saved file as PDF after editing (another name)
    Opened said PDF file and all pages as artboards show up as default

    I'm not able to choose if I want to work with a single page on this PDF anymore?

  17. AI CC 2018 cannot launch

    Hello,

    When I want to start illustrator, a first error message appears: (aip.png on attachment)

    After clicking on "next",
    a second message appears twice and then asks me to send an error report to Adobe. (impossible ai.png on attachment)

    I managed to run AI CC 2018 in safe mode but it lacks a lot of things like the toolbar. what should I do?

  18. Illustrator freezes all the time

    I am not able to use Illustrator at all. I have updated to the 2018 version. Every time I want to create new project or open existing one the program freezes. No matter if I have GPU Performance option on or off.

  19. AIGPUSniffer quit unexpectedly.

    Adobe Illustrator CC 2018

    When trying to open Ai files through Bridge, I get this error:

    'AIGPUSniffer quit unexpectedly.'

    and the file fails to open. I don't experience this issue when opening the same file through finder or through the 'Open' dialog box.
