Freezing and crashing
Constantly freezing while trying to use various features, such as selecting multiple layers or toggling layer view. This has happened on multiple projects today and yesterday. The app sometimes crashes while this happens, other times I have to force it to close and lose my unsaved work.112 votes

App Crashed overnight, erasing 2 hours worth of work - need auto save/backups
I worked on a new files for 2 hours throughout the day yesterday. Just before bed, I locked my iPad and set it down. When I opened the app this morning, there were strange green lines across the canvas. I force quit the app. When I reopened, the illustration had been reset to a far earlier state, losing 90% of the work I did yesterday.59 votes
When downloaded, installed and logged in, the app works fine. When I close the app on my iPad Pro 12.9” 2nd Gen, it will no longer open. It keeps crashing when opened. I have to delete and redownload to use it.

Changing Brush Stroke weight/width changes every other brush stroke in a document
- Select Calligraphy Brush
- Draw line with brush
- Deselect (use a different tool, work on a different layer etc)
- Go back and select Calligraphy brush and adjust stroke width = ALL previously created brush strokes will now change to the newly selected stroke size
What should happen:
- Select Calligraphy Brush
- Draw with brush
- Start a new line, adjust stroke size and only the currently selected line or new brush strokes adjusts24 votes
Snapping - Illustrator for Ipad
There seems to be a default 'snapping' that is hard-coded. With all snapping and guides turned off under "precision" I still cannot move an object with as much fluid precision as I can on the desktop version w/o snapping turned on.
I also cannot determine a way to select an object and then drag it by a single point to a single point of another object to 'snap' the points together as is possible on the desktop version.21 votesNeed More Info · AdminNitish Agarwal (Illustrator on Web/iPad Team) (Lead Software Engineer, Adobe Illustrator) responded

Type on Path moving around places whenever opening the file again
I’ve come to a constant problem with type on path. Whenever I open my project and then preview it again, the type on path moves away from its original place. It gets annoying whenever I have to move it every time I see this problem. It always changes.20 votesUnder Review · AdminNitish Agarwal (Illustrator on Web/iPad Team) (Lead Software Engineer, Adobe Illustrator) responded

Paint brush tool (using the art brushes) crashes the app after a few strokes, and you can’t export AI or PDF if you have paint brush strokes in your file.

When using the type tool and you tap the keyboard to bring up the keyboard it sometime crashes.16 votes
Need more information here – does the application crashes while brining up the keyboard or is it that the keyboard collapses as soon as you bring it up?
We’ve added new capabilities to the Export options in the latest update. Let us know if you’re still facing issues exporting to PDF.

Context menus/ popups close automatically
iPad Pro 2020
Illustrator 1.0, illustrator 1.1
When expanding any tool menu or opening any context menu/ pop up menu for any navigational elements, the pop up menu will open for one second and quickly close. If you can select a nested element/option in that popup before the popup closes in that brief second then good, otherwise the popup closes and you have to try again. This includes all tool menus on the left bar such as color swatches, pencil tool drop down, text tool drop down etc.. and on the top bar menu items such as export, help, settings, export etc.. the problem seems related to any menu drop down that behaves like a ‘popup’.
The panels on the right bar such as layers, properties etc.. do not have this problem and they remain open.
Currently the illustrator app is unusable. The problem persists in the 1.1 update.
