  1. Macbook completely crashes with Illustrator 2018

    Hi, I'm using Illustrator 2018 and quite frequently my MacBook Pro 2017 crashes completely when I'm moving objects around or copying objects. It happened with the 2017 version as well. I can only hard reset my computer, which NEVER happens with other apps.
    Thanks for help

  2. Many Many issues with Illustrator 2018

    1. Ever since I've updated to Illustrator 2018, the program is always lagging and becomes non-responsive. Something simple like selecting "T" for a new text line will stall my program. I've attached my computer specs.

    2. The alt shortcut for brush tool no longer selects color with the eye drop tool. I have to manually select the eyedropper, then switch back to the brush tool which is very frustrating when I need to do this hundreds of times a day!

    3. The startup time has increased dramatically. Showing a blank screen for a couple minutes until the illustrator home screen finally appears. Also…

  3. Copying and Pasting Text from a Word Doc instantly crashes Illustrator

    I'm using the latest version of Adobe Illustrator on Windows 10. After my first crash, I re-opened Illustrator and created a new document. Before doing anything else, I switched over to the .docx file I had open in WPS Writer and copied some of the text that was there to my Clipboard. Once I switched back to Illustrator, clicked on the artboard and pressed Ctrl+V, Illustrator immediately stops responding and crashes.

  5. Illustrator CC 2017 (macOS 10.13) crashes unexpectedly in High Sierra.

    I was creating a second artboard and about to save my file when the program just crashed. This is the third time this has happened since I upgraded and before I realized there was a compatibility issue. Also, when opening Illustrator first thing in the morning after turning the computer on, it is back to taking a long time to open, usually getting hung up on the Perspective.aip.

  6. High Sierra MacOS 10.13 Illustrator and navigation

    When I use Command+Tab to navigate between programs, I have to hide all open programs to see Illustrator's interface. The open palettes will display, but not the the document window, toolbar, application bar. When I try to hide Illustrator, only the palettes respond. Illustrator is generally sluggish with High Sierra.

  10. Ctrl key moves canvas in Illustrator rendering Ctrl-Z unusable

    Everytime I press the Ctrl key in Illustrator is moves the canvas right, making me unable to use ctrl-z or any other ctrl command because it defaults to moving the canvas, I'm pretty sure I have the latest version of Illustrator and the problem just started happening when I opened a psd file in it today. Didn't have this issue while using illustrator a few days ago.

  13. Black shapes when trying to group things

    When I try to group text objects and lines, the screen gets black shapes that come up. It happens every time, and even if I close the file and reopen it, it continues to happen.

  14. 「移動」の不具合

    1.Illustrator CC 2017(〜2014)
    2. 「移動」で垂直方向(上)にオブジェクトを移動した後、マイナス方向(下)に移動させようとすると、マイナスが効かずそのまま上方へ移動してしまう。
    3.4 .2を解除するには一旦別の数値を入力した後、再度マイナス方向の数値を入力すればリセットされて正常に動きますが、その入力がいちいち面倒臭い。
