  1. Illustrator Crashes When Trying To View Using CPU or Pixel Preview (All Versions)

    Been happening for quite some time now. When trying to view a pixel preview of my document it will hang then crash. Same exact thing happens if I try to "view using CPU". Also have been getting a weird "hairline" pink line around non-stroked objects.

    Attached pictures of the pink outline around the gray in the one picture and another around the white and the gray. It seems to change as I zoom in and out which makes me think it's a rendering/driver bug. I think this issue and the original crashing when trying to select CPU or Pixel Preview…

  3. Animated Zoom not working properly - Blurry graphics when zooming or panning

    I use animated zoom a lot, usually through the shortcut CMD+Space+Drag Mouse Left/Right.

    I've been getting this bug of Blurry graphics for a couple of days, and it's really annoying. My current workaround is using Tab after image turns blurry, so the graphics "refresh" to its sharp state.

  4. Lag on cursor and selections "sticking" to the cursor

    There is a lag on all selections in Illustrator 28.2. When I select any item I literally have to wait 2-3 seconds before I can move my cursor, else the selection "sticks" to my cursor and moves with it until I click again to drop it and then I have to ⌘Z to send the selection back to it's intended location so I can make the changes I need to make. SUPER FRUSTRATING.

    I have a new Macbook Pro with loads of RAM and never had this issue until the latest Illustrator update.

    Thank goodness I have Affinity Designer installed,…

  7. Illustrator 23 and 24 Lags and Crashes

    My entire department has been having issues with Illustrator recently. Will work fine for an hour or two, but then slows to a crawl, takes ages to save, and eventually crashes.

    We have issues opening files as well.

    we have:
    uninstalled, reinstalled
    reset our preferences
    Updated drivers
    and
    tried ctrl + alt +shft open to save a safe version.

    nothing has worked. we can't even go back to previous versions because now we get the same issue with them.

    Working on: Lenovo Thinkpad with Win10, Intel i9 processor, NVIDIA Quadro RTX4k and 64GB RAM

  9. A general un-usability

    I use a Mac desktop. Illustrator 28.1. There is a lot going wrong for me when using Illustrator lately. Overall it crashes itself like crazy as well as makes other apps on my computer not work when running it. It won't open sometimes, won't respond when in illustrator. Won't let me access the tool panel, so I have to force quit and re-open my not saved file. There are artifacts that will randomly show up in my art board. It's acting as if Illustrator is taking up way more memory than usual. I have been just having to force quit…

    Device name VENGEANCE
    Processor 13th Gen Intel(R) Core(TM) i9-13900K 3.00 GHz
    Installed RAM 64.0 GB (63.8 GB usable)

  11. App freezes when battery is low

    The app freezes when the battery on my MacOS laptop gets low. However, it freezes in such a way that MacOS doesn't realize that the app is frozen.

  12. OSX Sonoma 14.1.2 closes Illustrator 28

    I searched and couldn't find this issue. Currently using OSX 14.1.2 on a MBP.

    16-inch 2021, M1 Max, 64GB mem, Sonoma 14.1.2

    I keep getting the following error from the OS:

    "Updated required for "illustrator"
    This version of "illustrator" is not compatible with macOS 14 or later and needs to be updated. Contact the app developer for more information.

    FWIW, this happened on the 2023 version of ai as well, so I updated it to the latest 2024 just to be safe. I'm still getting the above error though, which is funny because there's nothing I could update to. So…

  14. Illustrator 2024(28.0)でブラウザなどから直接貼り付けるとハングする画像がある。

    macOS 14.1.1 MacBook Pro 2019 eGPU使用
    28.0 発生
    27.9 発生しない

    問題の発生
    ブラウザやOffice系の画像をコピーペーストまたはDrag'n'DropでIllustratorのアートボードに貼り付けるとレインボーカーソルが発生しハングする。

    問題の再現性
    「外部GPUを優先」時に発生、チェックを外すと起きない。

    アプリ側が『新しい Retype 機能を使用して画像内のテキストを編集します。』の表示をしようとした時の「外部GPUを優先」時の不具合か?

  16. Random delay when running script via command line

    When you run a script via the command line, sometimes there is a pause between launch and execution. The duration of this pause is always different.

    It would be nice if there was no pause at all.

  18. Freezing when copying object

    Whenever I copy or cut an object (shapes, mostly) Illustrator freezes. Sometimes for 30+ seconds.

    Windows 10. 32GB memory. It only started doing this a few months back, and it's getting worse.

  19. Enormément de latence

    Je rencontre des problèmes avec illustrator. Mon ordinateur est équipé de Windows 10 et d'une carte graphique NVIDIA RTX A4500 à jour. Depuis la version 28.0 de l'application, celle-ci met beaucoup de temps à se lancer et lorsque cela se produit, je n'arrive pas à accéder à l'écran d'accueil où je peux choisir le type de plan de travail que je souhaite utiliser. Je suis contraint d'ouvrir directement un fichier depuis mon explorateur de fichiers, sinon l'application ne fonctionne pas. De plus, une fois que j'ai ouvert un fichier, il y a un temps de latence d'au moins 30 secondes,…

  20. Hitting Alt Makes Cursor Look/Feel Laggy and Slow

    This has been going on for MANY years/versions of Illustrator and I've seen many posts here about the issue but it's yet to be resolved or have any work arounds.

    All you have to do to replicate the bug is to hit alt (don't even need to hold it) and assuming you're on a high refresh rate monitor you will instantly feel input lag and see the cursor moving at what appears to be 30fps or less, until you left click with mouse, then it will go back to normal. When you hit ALT there should be no difference in…
