Document window opens as narrow strip
Every document. Every time.
Multiple documents stack inside this narrow window.
Documents set to open in tabs.
Same regardless if Illustrator is opened first or opens with document.
Documents on external drives and local machine.
2016 MacBook Pro 15-inch 16 GB RAM
Mid-2015 MacBook Pro Retina 15-inch 16 GB RAM
MacOS Mojave (current)
Mac Illustrator CC 2019 (current)
Application Frame turned off. (with frame turned on things work differently... fine)
Both built in display and 32-inch 4k.
Only started this when I upgraded to CC 2019.
Clicking here expands the window too it's original, correct size.
Uninstalled Illustrator and files. Caches, etc.
Reset workspaces. Changed Workspaces.
Happens on both of my machines. I do not run any third-party plugins or extensions, so all is basically stock across machines.
Hi everybody. Another year passed. Here it is 2021 about to end. I got a shiny new version of Illustrator... 2022... version 26... I couldn't find another number to put with it so we will just have to deal 2021 2022 v26.
I also have it running on the fancy new MacOS 12 Monterey. Awesome cool!
So, eager to see life with the fixed document window opening to its full width and not in that annoying, narrow little strip that has been going on for 2-3 years.
Guess what... it's like living the same **** year over and over again. Bill Murray style.
Every time I open a document the initial open state of that document window (multiple documents in tabs as well) will be this narrow little strip. Maybe 150 pixels or so wide.
Well done Adobe. I am looking so forward to using that new sharing feature to let my colleagues check out the art in their narrow little window too.
FYI... this year I did figure out that it has to do with what the width of the document window is when saved. Anything narrower than around 3200 pixels or so and the document will reopen to that width each time. Once you drag the window width out wider to 3250-something and save... boom... that document will reopen in the narrow little strip document window. I have been able to replicate this on any Mac I try.
Spent 2 weeks trying to explain this to adobe "engineers" and finally got, "we are done with this, move along".
Anyway, I need to go pay this months Adobe bill now.
Until next year. Be cool.
Just checking in.
Here it is late 2020.
Upgraded to latest MacOS (Catalina). Updated to latest Adobe CC apps (Illustrator, InDesign, Photoshop, etc.). Why not... I pay for it monthly.
The Illustrator document window still opens as a narrow strip every time with application frame turned off.
