  1. v26.1.0 Click-drag fails... snaps back

    Click-drag, click-opt (copy) drag, click-shift (constrained) drag fails... snaps back.

    Click on object to drag it either with or without option and/or shift and sometimes it will fail and snap back to its original position.

    Mac mini M1
    MacOS 12.2.1 Monterey
    Apple Magic Mouse (no Wacom or other third party drivers)

    Same behavior on two identical machines.

    Works fine with v26.0.3.

  2. 線幅プロファイルが付加されたパスに対するブレンドを指定すると表示に時間がかかる。

    Illustrator 26.3.1
    OS macOS10.15.7(Intel)/Windows10

    問題の説明:
    線幅プロファイルが指定されたパス同士をブレンドした場合、再描画に相当な負荷がかかります。アクティビティモニターで確認するとCPU負荷が90%を超え、その状態が数秒続きます。その間Illustrator上ではレインボーカーソルが回り続けます。
    なお、ver.25.4.1ではこの様な表示パフォーマンスの問題はありませんでした。

    再現手順:
    1.直線をペンツールで2つ作成し、それぞれに線幅プロファイルを指定する。
    2.そのパスに対してブレンドを指定しステップ数255とする。
    3.意図通りの表示となるが、描画完了までに数秒かかりレインボーカーソルで待たされる。

    実際の結果:
    微調整の為にアンカーポイントを移動したり線の設定などを変更するたびに数秒待たされる。

    期待された結果:
    プロファイルを付加したパス同士のブレンドに対するパスポイントの調整でも以前のバージョンのようにスムーズに編集できる。

    回避方法:
    パフォーマンスの問題のようですから、再描画が完了するまで待つか以前のバージョン(2021)を利用するしか無いようです。

    ※添付のベンチマーク用データではシンボルの編集終了から通常の編集画面に戻るまでに1分近くを要します。

  3. illustrator v25.2.1 color profile keeps changing to emulate adobe illustrator 6.0

    illustrator v25.2.1 color profile keeps changing to emulate adobe illustrator 6.0 once I set it to our teams color profile. Especially if I switch from AI to PS. Even after changing the profile in Bridge and synchronizing them.

  4. Performance is extremely slow when using show grids in outline preview

    macOS Big Sur 11.4, Illustrator 25.3.1

    When switching to outline mode when using show grids, it is almost impossible to keep on working as everything is in slow motion, as if the graphic card is unable to cope. This occurs with a 500 kb file that was trouble free before the last updates.

    It turns out the problem is fixed only partially in 26.3.1, only for some users, and the performance remains slow when grid is rendered with lines or dots in Outline mode. This applies to zooming, panning and ghosting of objects being moved.

    Please help the team by providing your specs and answers to these questions:

    1. Does it work fine with grid as dots in Preivew / Outline mode?

    2. Does it differ from grid as lines in these modes?

    3. What is slow for you exactly? How severe?

    4. Is there a difference if you disable 'Grids In Back' option?

    5. What are you lines/subdivisions settings?

    And any other related feedback is appreciated. Let's track it down and get this really fixed.

  5. Illustrator 25.4.1 Generating constant 105MB log files into com.adobe.dunamis folder and filling up hard drive

    When I am working in Illustrator, my fan starts to run and Illustrator generates multiple log files per minute in the com.adobe.dunamis folder. Each log file is roughly 105MB and before I was able to pinpoint what was going on, it filled my hard drive with 750GB of log files. If I close Illustrator and reopen it, it stops for awhile but I haven't been able to pinpoint what triggers the start of the log file generation – it isn't consistently doing it, but it does occur multiple times per day.

  8. Strange lag when opening files in Illustrator and Lightroom is running in the background

    When Lightroom is running in the background I am experiencing a lag when opening files in Illustrator. It takes about 40 seconds for the file to come up in Illustrator, even with smallest files.

    Had this issue for a long time now and with X versions of Illustrator in the past.

    • Keep lightroom running parallel to illustrator
    • Open File (double click or from the menu)
    • Blank file pops up and stays freezed for an amound of seconds
    • File opens completely

    • PC, Windows 10 pro 21H2, last X Versions of Illustrator

    More strange: When I send Lightroom to a systray icon…

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

    The error makes all shortcuts useless, plus they can't even be edited nor does resetting preferences make any difference.

  11. Illustrator is incompatible with Windows 11 sleep mode

    My Windows 11 laptop (Samsung Galaxy Book Pro 360) heats up and excessively drains battery when Illustrator is open and the laptop has been put into sleep mode. My laptop heats up even more while been plugged in and in "sleep mode" with illustrator open. These issues has forced me to use the hibernation mode for example during commuting.

  12. Space + drag navigation bug after sleep on M1

    The space + drag navigation stops working in almost all Adobe programs after I wake up my M1 Macbook Pro from sleep on macOS 11.5.2. So I have to restart the system.

    Thanks in advance for the help!

  13. Custom guides make Illustrator unusable when viewed as dots

    I've made guides out of a large number of lines (forming an iso grid). This works fine as long as I am viewing the guides as lines, but when changing the view to Dots in settings, Illustrator get so slow that I can't even move around in the document. I am using Windows 10 version 26.1. I also have v25.4.1 installed and it is the same thing there.

    Maybe it would be less performance demanding if we could set transparancy on guides instead of using dots?

  14. Delays and Sluggishness

    For the 30+ years I've been using Adobe Illustrator, I don't think I have every really been bothered by the app or an update until last year. Now when you open AI, make a new file, or try to drag content around on a canvas or move the page around using the hand tool, the app is very lethargic and jerky. It is as if it is validating all actions by an online verification before any action is done. This really makes using the app frustratingly slow.

  15. Illustrator 26.3.2 lags when wifi turned on

    Illustrator 26.3.2 on MacBook Pro, 2019, 2.3GHz 8-core i9, RAM: 32 GB 2400 MHz DDR4, Graphics: Radeon Pro Vega 20 4 GB. When wifi is turned on, performance is very laggy. Every few actions of the mouse, the screen/cursor skips and freezes, beach ball briefly appears, then back to normal after about 5 seconds.

    When wifi is turned off, app works fine. I installed the previous version and it works fine so far with wifi on.

  16. Insane Bloatware Devouring my RAM

    Holy **** Adobe. I am not going to be professional or even reasonable in this email because THIS IS ******* RIDICULOUS. WHY are the 30+ background programs running that are literally impossible to kill, and will launch even if they are not on the startup list!!!!! Your absolute garbage approach to managing these background tasks has essentially rendered my PC useless. I am ******* angry and honestly I want my money back for Illustrator because this is complete horse ****. How can you honestly sleep at night as a developer knowing how embarrassingly poor this software suite is set up?…

  17. Copying and Constraining using keyboard shortcuts (Opt/Shift) is causing error sound

    This version of Illustrator (26.1) on MacOS Monterey 12.3 is sporadically having problems with taking an object and using keyboard shortcuts to copy/constrain (option/shift). At seemingly random times when trying to copy an object with option held down or option/shift held down and dragging the object with the mouse, I am getting the error noise and then a rejection of what I was trying to do. It happens frequently throughout my workflow, but I'm not sure exactly what is triggering it. Sometimes I get the error noise when simply dragging an object around the artboard, but again seems totally random.

  18. AI 25.4.1 GPU performance still very slow, cannot easily editing previous version files

    Since AI 25.2 I've had problems editing files. With GPU features enabled, all UI functions, selecting, deselecting, all mouse dragging functions, menu selections are all extremely slow to respond, I'm talking several seconds between responses to clicks and movement. Turning off "Real Time Editing" helps somewhat, delays are shortened, but still very difficult to work with. Disabling Animated-zoom has no effect. Disabling GPU entirely, improves selection and dragging, but there is still a delay of several seconds after releasing the mouse button. This behavior seems restricted to editing files prior to v25.2, but not all. Preforming a "SaveAs" over the…

  19. placing (linking) JPGs in illustrator makes files incredibly slow to work with

    Often I create layouts that require linking JPG in my doc. Whenever there are multiple JPGs in my doc, the doc becomes very slow. I do not notice the same performance issue if the linked files are TIFs. This has been an issue for multiple versions of Illustrator.

  20. Copy/Pasting Art Causes "Save Changes" Prompt When Closing File

    If I copy the art in one document and paste it into another document, I will get the "Save changes to the AI document before closing?" prompt when I attempt to close the document from which the art has been copied, even though I have made no changes.

    AI never used to do this to my recollection. It's a nuisance and causes doubts when I've been distracted from one task, only to come back and have to verify whether any changes have actually been made.

    The majority of the time, no changes have been made but to be on the…
