  1. Mac is frozen when moving objects around

    Hi, I'm using Illustrator CC on a Macbook (High Sierra). It very often freezes completely and nothing helps, but hard reset. It's very annoying, as this happens 10-15 times when making a Figure for a publication. It happens when moving simple objects around. I tried to reinstall and to purge the preferences, nothing really helps. Can someone help?

  3. Artboard glitch when undo and redo

    When I use the hot keys to undo and redo (Ctr+Z ; Ctrl+Shift+Z) more than once at a time, the entire artboard freezes. When I open the file again, all of my work is gone.

  4. Placed .tiff file making vector image disappear

    In my line of work we have "distresses" that we place over the vector image that we've created. The distresses are .tiff files and with the last update have began making the vector image disappear. When printed everything is fine. However most of the time we also have to export as a .png to send our customers a proof and we have to export several times before getting a .png we can use.

  6. Surface pro 4, Illustrator and InDes

    I am having problems running Illustrator CC and InDesign CC on my new Surface pro (Intel Core i7-7660U CPU 2,5GHz, 16,0 GB RAM). Usually the programs crashes on startup, and the crash is followed by an option to send a crash report. When trying to send the crash report, the crash report crashes! Only Randomly the programs open, but then it seems like the programs are running on wrong resolution. Have anyone else experienced these issues, and is there any fix?

  7. Line distortion Issue

    I am having this issue while designing in Illustrator. The example attached is only one area that is having this distortion. The smooth lines have little cuts out of them, but when I save it out it seems to be ok. It is very distracting and would like to know if there is a fix for it.

  8. Saves pdf as ai, and a lousy update.

    Today as I was trying to save out a pdf Ai would remove the name when changing folders, everytime. Then it saved a pdf with an Ai extension, but will only open as a pdf. Screwing all of my work because it saved the file as an Ai, instead of overwriting my changes. This entire update has been a **** big buggy dis-appointment and appears to have no added value.
    When will software mfg realize that people are tired of updates?

  9. New version randomly and continually changing position of endpoints

    I have a large map I'm working on that's doing a strange thing ever since AI CC's last update (21.1.0).

    After the update, Illustrator seemed to change the "Arrowheads" (circles in the case of this file) position at the end of SOME, but not all, of my lines. As far as I could tell, the unwanted and automatic change was completely random. Worse yet, it seems to be continuing at random, as though AI has developed an AI intended to drive me insane.

    Anyone else experiencing this? (In the sample screenshot, the circles at the ends of the lines representing…

  10. Tiny background pixels in top objecting flickering in and out

    In some of my files pixels that are the color of the immediate background of an object will flicker in and out of the object. Zooming in and out changes the regions of the object that are affected, and sometimes it appears as if the object is fine. However, if you then zoom in, the problem resumes.

  11. Non-persistant Align To bug is back, Constant Crashes, Etc.

    Non-persistant Align To bug is back, Constant Crashes, Etc. And, I had to reset ever preference after upgrading AI. I don't understand. I was given a fix for AI to install, then the update for AI has the same bugs and whatever. Why Does AI crash all the time, now? It's like, oh no, I did something, time for AI to crash. Why don't you all observe the application being used for something besides overlaying circles?

  12. type/color changes having difficulty taking

    v.22.0.1 64-bit on win 10
    never had these issues before today, but basically some changes are selectively not taking, are reverting back to previous. 2 examples:

    1. changed type font from Clyburn to Hummingbird (from Tk), change takes, saved work, then went to move type and reverts to Clyburn. so copied layer with Hummingbird, locked it, hid it, then made change, still switched back. closed/rebooted Illustrator, was back in Clyburn. however, made change and it finally took, however could not change between Hummingbird Regular and Bold.

    2. working with ellipses in a logo in CMYK. placed ellipse with gradient stroke. copied layer,…

  16. Windows Illustrator CC 22.0.0

    GPU performance impossible with Intel(R) HD Graphics 530. Is this GPU needs to be replaced ?
    There is a bug when moving the bloc (purple). The rendering of graphics is wrong and clipping.

  17. Illustrator CC 18 freezing on macOS High Sierra

    Ever since upgrading to 2018 Illustrator, it frequently freezes my entire screen after performing simple actions such as moving or rotating objects. Have had to hard-reboot my MacBook Pro 2016 (Touch Bar version) several times which is obviously not good for the system. This is not an issue with any of the other Adobe CC apps I have installed, Photoshop/InDesign/Premiere Pro etc. all work perfectly fine. Please resolve this ASAP - I rely on Illustrator for my work.

  18. ARTBOARAD SELECTION and arrow tool in CC 2018

    I can't select and move vector graphics without this happening to my illustrator artboard (see screen catures), I can't move graphic elements without it shaking. I try zooming in and out - closing the document and illustrator and starting all over again, but it keeps happening over and over, I can't basically use the APP AT ALL.

    Everytime I try to select and element or move an element the whole APP almost goes into a malfunction!

  19. Since updating Illustrator to CC 2018 it runs worse than before

    Illustrator lags, it crashes. Creative Cloud sucks. Looking to switch over to CorelDraw. That's all I have to say. I'm annoyed and frustrated with Adobe since switching to CC.
