  1. Preview problem

    The work done is not visible instantly. I can see the changes when zoomed in. The preview section is not working properly.

  2. Display refresh upon scaling is pixelated

    Using the zoom tool or Command+ options to enlarge, the image is highly pixelated. And stays that way. I have to go back to Command 0 and start again.

    On top of this, the rainbow is a frequent visitor. While doing the most basic of things like turning a layer off or on, and definitely while enlarging the image.

    This does not happen all the time but usually after the application has been use for a while, like it's tired! Very annoying.

  3. Screen flashes when using Shift/Scroll wheel to navigate around transparent canvas

    The transparent canvas goes into a non-transparent mode whenever one uses the scroll wheel click or holds the spacebar to navigate around the canvas instead of staying transparent. A similar but far more epileptic effect can be seen when using the scroll wheel to scroll vertically or Shift + scroll wheel to scroll horizontally: the canvas flashes from transparent to white with every pixel it is moved, making it extremely unpleasant to look at.

    Version number is v28.1.0.62, operating system is Windows 11 Home.

    The team tries a new algorithm to boost panning and zooming speed within Beta. It streams the contents of the document much faster, and it leads to less lagging, but the downside of the method is disabling all annotations while both zooming and panning happen: the documents grid, the transparency grid, guides...


    This is a know limitation and the team continues to explore the method further.

    At the moment there is no way to disable this behavior.

    The main Illustrator release does not have this method enabled.

  4. Text to Vector errors-out on Mac, cannot use

    Text to Vector beta prompting doesn't work. It will display the 3 sample prompts as it's working but then says "Something Went Wrong" in red and will only display the 3 default samples in the Sample Prompts Box. This is Illustrator 2024, 28.0, on a Mac running 11.7.1. Changing the Type from Subject to Scene and changing prompts doesn't correct the issue. Restarting the software and my machine also doesn't work.

  5. won't let me preview files, immediately switches to outline mode.

    When I have a file with multiple patterns in multiple places, save the file close out and when I reopen the file as soon as I move something or zoom in I get a prompt that "Can't finish previewing. Could not complete the requested operation"

  7. MB Pro (2019) 32gb RAM - 2 TB SSD etc. - Beta is continuously crashing with files of any significant size, standard AI runs fine?

    Anybody experiencing consistent crashes with MacBook Pro or similar machine? I can run the same files with ease in the standard version however large or multiple projects open in the beta version continue to lag and then crash. Any ideas? I have disabled all external plug-in, autosave features, etc. - Cloud is in use rarely, however always on 1gb internet speeds. Open to ideas!

  9. Display is solid red first thing each day!

    When I open an AI (Beta) file for the first time each day, the entire screen is solid red. I have to close and reopen the program to get rid of the issue.

  10. Highlighted /selected text is flickering

    Highlighted /selected text in Illustrator Beta is all sorts of funky, it flickers and doesn't highlight all text
