    The issue is Illustrator uses mostly single core processes so if you have a 16 core processor, it doesn't matter and most likely the speed of a single core in a newer pc is lower because it's relying on multicore rather than single core speeds. My 15 year old laptop is a 4.3ghz duocore and it runs Illustrator faster than another laptop which is an 8 core 3.6ghz processor. On top of that Illustrtaor is problematic with most GPUs which is why it's always the default solution to disable GPU performance. So, it's 2024, and we are running single core software with our GPUs disabled. It's a downgrade.

    Adobe doesn't care. They really don't. In 10 years, it will still be the same primitive codeset. Only when real competition comes along (*that they can't acquire) will things start to change.

    They have zero motivation except for gaining new subscribers.

    This. Illustrator is legacy code with new bandaids on top. It's such a patchy pile of garbage that can't handle processing, doesn't use even a quarter of your resources and just feels more and more like the wrong tool for professionals with each passing day.

    Adobe, Take a look at how Rive handles the following:
    1. entering isolation mode
    2. selection tool accuracy
    3. handle controls (you can select2 beziers at the same time and move together. you can also move them with up directionkeys on a keyboard)
    4. If I can see it, I can select it. Unlike Illustrator where I have to zoom in at least 4 times larger to eyedrop, select, etc. I don't understand why a computer needs to zoom in to be accurate if the cursor is accurately aligned.
    5. Clean UI. Just makes sense compared to Illustrator.

    6!. 4K handling. I don't have to blow up my UI as if I'm visually impaired to be able to see a normal sized set of tools. They scale properly.

    7. Snapping and guides. Rive doesn't need 17 snap options that all conflict with each other. If I want to turn snap off, I just hold down CTRL while moving an object. I don't need to turn off smart guides and manually disable snap options.

    Rive is better than you at adjusting shapes, handles, bezier accuracy, etc and they don't even have a pen tool yet.

    Keep staying complacent, your age is really starting to show and people are fed up. New software is on the rise and most of your users have one foot out the door. We're just waiting for the right alternatives to hit the market.

    105 votes now and absolutely nothing from adobe. This is not the only place this is being documented. Its also on the adobe forums. They just don't care and it really shows. They already have our money.

    This is just one of those examples of where Adobe just doesn't listen to it's users and instead decides to break what was not broken. In an 8 hour day, I can honestly say I lose a minimum of an hour in micro amounts of poor UI.

    Dealing with layers is an even bigger issue. WTF would you have a lock and a visibility option for layers and groups if visibilty acts like lock? Why can't I drag something out of a layer thats hidden when it's not locked? Why do I need to unhide layers for them to get accept transforms given to the parent layer? Wouldn't that be what lock is for?

    This causes another hour lost to combine for an average of 2 hours a day in nonsensical UI. Every action requires 5x more work than necessary. Other art programs do not have these issues.

    Amen to that. Astute only made them to make up for adobe shortcomings. You'd think they would look at those features as easy opportunities to improve.

    I find the admin response to get a subscription for astute graphics, unacceptable. Astute costs $149 a year, we already pay for Adobe and Astute only made those features to make up for Adobe's shortcomings. If you are going to have a software subscription model based on upgrades and new features, then you need to be improving and this area is where you should focus.

    It is not as straightforward as it may sound :) We have been working to take advantage of threads and other hardware such as GPU/Video RAM in places where it can make a higher impact. We are prioritizing areas that are slow instead of making a generic change and destabilizing the product. Product stability is the top priority for us and we have been consistently trying to improve it. We want to move with caution and make changes without compromising on the quality. Hope this helps.

    1. Make a doc in illustrator
    2. Make some lines less than 1px width
    3. Export to pdf
    4. View the pdf and pay attention to the line thickness.
    5. Disable enhance lines to see it should rendered correctly.

    This feature is a bug. Not a feature. This should be an option in export, not in the viewer. Those of us creators who aren't making spreadsheets don't need this as default. It also messes up text thickness too. This is unacceptable and has been requested to be addressed for over 10 years.
