  1. 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…

  2. 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.

  3. 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!

  4. 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。

  5. 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.

  6. 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?…

  7. 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…

  8. Illustrator freezes windows file explorer

    Ever since the last update, occasionally Illustrator will completely freeze when I'm opening a file. Additionally, after that happens, every time I try to open an adobe product file from within file explorer, it also freezes. I have to restart the system to fix this. I can double click any other file within file explorer and it will open fine, but if I try to double click on any adobe product, it doesn't matter which one, it will completely freeze. But it all starts whenever it freezes from within illustrator.

  9. 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?

  10. Stability Issues

    Illustrator is constantly crashing, I use Windows 10. I've been losing a lot of work because of it. I am forced to do the updates (can't use an older version) because I receive art from multiple artists and they all use the updated version, and the "older versions" can't open the newer version.... WHEN ARE YOU GUYS GOING TO FIX THIS???!!!

  12. 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.

  14. Not Responding. Crashing when I go to make a pattern

    Operating system: Windows 10
    Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 Super
    Intel(R) Core(TM) i9-9900K CPU @ 3.60GHz
    31.85GB RAM

    Currently in the process of creating a 40cm x 40cm all over surface pattern design print. So far everything has been fine. My total file size is 435mb.

    When I select my imagery ready to turn in to Object > Pattern > Make
    Illustrator decides that it can't process this, freezes and crashes.
    I am on the most up to date versions of Illustrator and drivers for my RAM.
    I have also tried simplifying my pathways to no avail.

    Does anyone else know…

  15. Preview of color selections (AI 26.0.2)

    I am from Release of Illustrator, which the preview of color selections, if activated, does not allow me to enlarge over 1200%, because the screen becomes all gray. I tried in preferences> performance to activate and deactivate the GPU, without any change. I tried to trash all the preferences, without any change. I tried to uninstall Illustrator, without any change.

    [Sono da diversione release di illustrator, che l'Anteprima di selezioni colori, se attivata, non mi permette di ingrandire oltre il 1200%, perchè lo schermo diventa tutto di colore grigio.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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. Illustrator not effectively handling Windows Desktop Magnification

    I have been having so many problems with Illustrator lately and just now realized that it is because of my UltraWide monitor and the fact that I have Windows Magnification set to 200%.

    This is not being handled well in Illustrator. It's making the active area around a selected item way too big. I can be 100px off of the selected item and it still wants to rotate. I try to select a point and it's nearly impossible. If you look at all of the "tolerance" bug reports, I would be willing to bet they all deal with magnification levels…
