    Agreed, starting to see this constantly now after it had disappeared for a while.

    Yes, this still seems to be an issue for folders that are backed up to a web service (Google File Stream here.) I don't see it for files that are saved elsewhere.

    General slowness on using Illustrator on Mac is one of the major issues reported in this thread. Illustrator team made significant progress in replacing Illustrator’s GPU rendering engine from OpenGL to macOS Native Metal Rendering Engine – https://developer.apple.com/metal/.
    We have observed common operations like Zoom, Pan, and rendering operations are now smoother in cases where it was sluggish as reported in this thread. We urge Mac users to try the Illustrator Beta build with Metal support and share your feedback.
    Please note, this may not address other performance issues reported in this thread not related to rendering like File Save, Export, or slowness in any particular feature.

    This build is available in Illustrator Prerelease Download Section – https://www.adobeprerelease.com/beta/85A6F544-2705-49BD-8314-DD549C6A1713

    Agreed. Lagging is still horrible -- at least on my MacBook Pro it is. I don't see the same issue on my iMac (which has lesser specs than my MacBook Pro.)

    Need More Info  ·  Yogesh Sharma responded

    A couple of questions on this:

    1. Would it be okay to have a separate spec creation service much like the upcoming Adobe XD service? On this service, anyone with a link, can select any objects, and view its dimensions (W/H), colors, fonts etc. Or should it be inside Illustrator.

    2. Are you only going to create horizontal, and vertical dimensions? Or would you also like to have angular dimensions as well?

    Please share more details about your workflow.

    Thanks,
    Yogesh

    Hello Everyone!

    First up, let me apologize for not giving an update for such a long time. We will try to do a better job of providing frequent updates on our top requests going forward. This is not an excuse for lack of communication from our side, but we have been discussing this request for a long time internally. Without getting into too many technical details, let me share that there is a fair amount of complexity involved in making it work within Illustrator. The number of tools, effects, plugins, etc. makes it even more challenging. However, given the fact that it continues to be one of the top requests, the team has been exploring different approaches to implement it. I am happy to share that we have finally :) started to work on it. There would be some challenges in making everything work in the first release. I will…

    You can create a flat long shadow using the Transform effect. It doesn't have that gradient effect (you could get that if you break the transform effect apart.)

    A suggestion that might save you some time (and is something I discovered fairly recently.) If you have a box with a color and want another object to use that color for its stroke, use the eyedropper with the other object selected and then hit "shift" + "x" which will swap fill and stroke colors. A drawback is that the new stroke will be set to the default parameters.

    A better option might be Adobe adopting the "Graphic find and replace" tool from Freehand it got when it bought Macromedia. Then you could make conditional changes to objects.

    One way this can work is choosing the PDF format and selecting a PDF option that includes the AI file for editability. I use this option pretty frequently and it works well. Straight AI format might be preferable in some situations but the PDF format can work.

    @Alexandre Soubrier Agreed. Selecting points is easier now but selecting bezier handles is still a study in frustration.

    I strongly support your suggestion. I think I waste the most time in Illustrator just trying to grab bezier points. Adding tolerance and/or cursor change would go a long way towards mitigating the wasted time.
