  1. Adobe Illustrator 26.0.2 on Mac OSX Catalina 10.15.7 will not launch

    I updated to Adobe Illustrator 26.0.2 from 26.0.1. I am on Catalina 10.15.7. Illustrator will not launch and I get the error report with the prompt to send it to Adobe. I restarted my computer and it behaved the same way. I then uninstalled 26.0.2 and re-installed a clean version. Still did not launch. I then uninstalled and installed 26.0.1, which I am using now, but would like to update.

  3. Illustrator WILL NOT LAUNCH on Apple Silicon

    I've been having this issue for a few weeks. Trying to launch Illustrator 26.0.1 on Apple Silicon (I have tried both the Apple Silicon version and the Intel version). I don't get the splash screen. The menu at the top of the screen loads, and says "Illustrator," but all menu options are grayed out. I can't open a file by right-clicking in Finder and saying "Open with Illustrator". Illustrator freezes/crashes at this point and the only solution is to force quit via the Task Manager. Please help!

  5. Illustrator crashes on launch

    Every time I start illustrator it crashes. Starting a second time USUALLY opens it but sometimes a third attempt is needed. It links me to a "fix" that requires uninstalling some third party chrome office plugin that I don't have...so a useless link to a prompt that will now pop-up every time I start illustrator.

    I just upgraded to 26.0.1 in hopes this was fixed. It's not.

    Lenovo P15 workstation laptop, Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-10850H CPU @ 2.70GHz, 96 gb of ram, Nvidia Quadro T2000, windows 10 pro. So no excuses about resources.

    The fact that the report bug link takes…

  6. Illustrator 2022 DOES NOT OPEN.

    This new Illustrator update DOES NOT WORK. Just installed the new 2022 update yesterday 11/01, and it worked for half the day, and in the second half, the app refused to open. Tried again this morning 11/02, and there was a small update to Illustrator, so in hopes of fixing the issue from yesterday, I installed the update, and guess what, still broken. I reinstalled the past version of Illustrator, and that doesn't work now either. I'm not telling you how to do your job Adobe, but for me to do my job, I need Illustrator to work. If you…

    This is embarrassing and incredibly sad to hear. I can’t imagine to be cut off a my main tool when I need it.
    I guess the only option you can try is to clean all the traces of previous versions installed with the Cleaner Tool (https://helpx.adobe.com/creative-cloud/kb/cc-cleaner-tool-installation-problems.html), install 2021 version and hope it work.
    So sorry it happened, and I wish I could do more.
    Please add votes to this if you experience the same issue, it will help to initiate a proper investigation.

  10. Not loading and crashing.

    When I launch Illustrator it is only a black screen and doesn't load. I have tried rebooting it many times and logging in and out of Adobe but it is still a black screen. After about 5 min of trying to get it to load the screen crashes.

  16. Illustrator 25.3.1 Will Not Open

    At least two of the computers in our office are having issues with the latest Illustrator update 25.3.1. The program does not open when selecting a file and performing Open With>Adobe Illustrator 2021. The program does not open from the start menu. The program does not open directly from the Illustrator.exe file. If you try to uninstall Illustrator with Creative Cloud, it tells you that you can't because the program is open. If you go to the Task Manager with less detail, Illustrator does not show open, however, if you select more detail, you may see 14 or more processes…

  17. Recent file shows correct file but opens up as older version

    Hi there,

    I am using Illustrator 25.3 (64-bit) on Windows 10 Pro.

    When I open Illustrator and look into the 'recent' panel I see the document I was working on yesterday with all the changes I made (picture 1), but when I click on it, it opens what seems to be an older version of the document and all the changes I made during the day yesterday just disappear (photo2, note the few pages and other changes not showing).

    I know I saved during the day yesterday (as it took a long time to save every time) and clearly remember…

  18. Stalling on launch

    Using Windows 10 25.2.3 (64 bit)
    Stalling on start up if opening a single file, opens from desktop shortcut.
    Recommended diagnostic does nothing.
    Anyone else experience this?
