  1. CRASH AND NO RECOVERY

    ever since the most recent updates, my illustrator has been crashing regularly. And worse file recovery has not recovered a single file. this is very wack. I have lost money re-doing things I already made and lost because of random crashes. Very Very disappointing and not encouraging me to continue using illustrator.

  3. slow cursor on second monitor when using Adobe Illustrator - only while using Ai

    When I used illustrator on my second monitor, the mouse cursor is astoundingly slow and a reduced range across the screen. This only happens when I use illustrator, not other applications. I am using a macOS Mohave 10.14.5 (18F132) and am connecting to my monitor with an HDMI using an HDMI/USB adapter for my laptop.

    This costs me in time and efficiency at my job, as I'm sure it does for other people, who have posted similar complaints on adobe forums. Please fix it!

  5. There is not enough memory available to process the appearance of an object

    MAC OS High Sierra Version 10.13.6
    Processor 3.2Ghz Intel Core i5
    Memory 8GB
    Graphics AMD Redeon R9 M380 2048MB

    Illustrator is CC 2019 23.0.1

    When trying to work on an image, my colleague is constantly getting the above message and the application hangs.
    Could you advise if there is a fix for this?

  6. hand tool shortcut

    Hi there.

    Operating System - Windows 10 Enterprise
    Illustrator version - CC
    Expected Result - Hand tool function to work using the shortcut
    Actual Result - Hand tool function does not work using the shortcut

    The shortcut for the hand tool is causing me problems. holding the space bar is displaying the hand icon, but clicking the mouse as normal wont activate the 'grab' ie the tool doesnt work. Its as if the function isnt there even though the hand icon appears.

    normal hand tool function works fine by the way.

    thanks, Ross Hume

  7. The operation cannot be completed because of an unknown error [PARM]

    iMac OS Mojave 10.14.1
    Adobe Illustraor CC 23.0.1

    Constantly getting this error message:
    The operation cannot be completed because of an unknown error [PARM]

    Click 'OK' and get error message:
    An error occurred while processing the appearance of an object

    Occurs randomly when drawing shapes using pen or shape tool, with or without fills. Last occurrence was when using knife tool to intersect a shape.

    If I click 'OK' error re-occurs immediately.

    Happy to have any ideas?

  9. lastest update crashes CONSTANTLY

    Just updated to version 23.0 via CC panel and Illustrator won't run more than 2 minutes at a time without crashing. I can't keep it open long enough to determine if there's a specific trend or problem. Selecting any tool from any palette, or trying to move an object on the art board, or while typing... just locks up no matter what I do. VERY FRUSTRATING.

    For what it's worth, I'm on Windows 10 with 32 gb of RAM running 64 bit version of Illustrator. Never crashed before the update.

  14. Illustrator CC - Lags constantly every attempt to do something in my layers

    I have been using Illustrator since macOS Sierra and it was decent in regards to performance not perfect though. Now since MacOS High Sierra Illustrator just destroys my workflow, I waste so much time waiting for the pin wheel to go away just so that when I attempt to move the cursor to interact with a layer is comes right back and i'm waiting again. . . and then at time it will crash (this is good I make backups)

    I would find it hard to believe that a relatively new MacBook Pro should have no problems handling an 600mb…

  17. Illustrator 2020 (25.0) Crashes Macbook Pro 2017

    The first time I opened Illustrator 25 it crashed my MBP before it finished opening. Then my laptop wouldn't start again easily. After I unplugged all of my USB-C cables it would start. I tried AI again but it crashed my system right after AI opened. I couldn't restart again for a while until I unplugged all the cables. Third time I restarted I haven't opened AI and no problems yet so I'm fairly confident it's related.

  18. Copy/Paste No Longer Working

    Upon opening Illustrator, copy/paste feature will work once, then will not work again. Have tried various troubleshooting methods and adjusting settings others have had with similar issues to no avail. This is costing me money. I'm under deadlines.

  19. Stability update made Illustrator very unstable

    I noticed the 27/07/2020 update described itself as addressing stability issues, which I didn't have. Since the update ran, 3 hours ago, I've had three crashes - all when copying text and graphics together. My crash report crashed too.

  20. Illustrator gets a bit weird when I hold down shift to click and drag an object.

    When I hold down shift to click and drag or when I hold shift+option and drag to copy, the object gets stuck. I have to take my finger off the shift key to move the object in place requiring an extra step to align.
