  5. Transform Tool

    Entering a number in X then hitting tab to Y and typing in the number is jogging to another number and not applying the number I typed. I have to wait a couple seconds then type in the number for Y. This worked fine two versions ago.

  7. Adobe Illustrator 2020 (24.1.2)-The latest updated version KEEPS CRASHING on MacOS Mojave

    Hi
    I'm having crashing issues with the simplest movements like dragging, changing the type sizes, accidentally double-clicking etc.
    First the screen freezes.
    Later everything goes blank/my screen sometimes goes full black and forced shutdown follows.
    I'm using Macbook Air - MacOs Mojave version 10.14.6. (1.6 GHz Intel Core i5/ 8 GB 1600 MHz DDR3).
    This is happening every time I open up AI without exception.
    Note: When I started my computer in safe mode-AI is working normally.
    What should we do?
    Thanks in advance.

    Not sure what I am doing wrong or if this is a bug. Would be super helpful if your team were to fix this issue if it were a bug.

    Thank you for all that you do.

  12. Create new file dialog box lags

    When I'm working with multiple files, opening and closing, there are times where I copy an object to a new file. I use Command-N, but the dialog box lags and takes several seconds to show up. Is it trying to connect to something online? Why is there lag?

  13. Crash while setting up Action

    Illustrator crashes every-time I try to set up a new action. I am trying to create a shade effect of a "sticker" but doing the following:
    - Take outline vector (which is white path)
    - Duplicate
    - Switch to fill
    - Change color to black
    - Apply Shear at 20 degrees
    - Edit opacity to 20%
    - Crash

    Just curious as to why this happening. Possibly due to my file size? 162.5 MB

  14. Illustrator doesn't open

    I simply can't open Illustrator anymore. The screenshot below shows how Illustrator appears when it's open. I can only see the top bar, none of the actual interface. I'm working on MacOS Mojave Version 10c.14.1 Illustrator version 23.01

    I even tried uninstalling and installing it again but nothing changed.

    Thank you
    Corina
