Performance on MacOS
Currently MacOS version still slow, zooming slow , it's memory hog. it need to use Apple Metal GPU API. Illustrator is heavy. They need to improve the performance. Listen to the users.
like MacBook Air it runs slow and laggy.
Performance on the fully spec'd out 2019 Macbook Pro is terrible.
Since Illustrator is the primary Adobe program with compatability with Animate and After Effects, we use it to create storyboards for animating. However, as soon as a couple of images are added the whole thing bogs down.
Illustrator needs image quality scaling like InDesign (Typical, High Quality etc)
