    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

    It turns out the problem is fixed only partially in 26.3.1, only for some users, and the performance remains slow when grid is rendered with lines or dots in Outline mode. This applies to zooming, panning and ghosting of objects being moved.

    Please help the team by providing your specs and answers to these questions:

    1. Does it work fine with grid as dots in Preivew / Outline mode?

    2. Does it differ from grid as lines in these modes?

    3. What is slow for you exactly? How severe?

    4. Is there a difference if you disable 'Grids In Back' option?

    5. What are you lines/subdivisions settings?

    And any other related feedback is appreciated. Let's track it down and get this really fixed.

    OK, I've now tried 9 separate releases and the issue definitely arrived in the v25.3 update (it does not affect v25.2.3 or earlier releases in my testing).

    From v25.3 onwards, it's very clear when grid in back is enabled, because just switching to outline mode (or switching the grid style to dots) takes ~7 seconds (it's instantaneous when grids in back is disabled).

    1. In preview mode, it runs substantially worse with grid as dots while the grid is in back
    2. I'm not aware of how to make outline mode use grid as lines for comparison, but the app runs *much* slower when the grid is shown as dots.
    3. As Marc noted, the whole app runs meaningfully slower when grid is in back. For my tests I'm deliberately focused on only the simplest tasks. I have a single 24px × 24px artboard with snap to grid turned on, and I draw a rectangle on it. It runs slower with grid in back in preview mode, but fast enough to be usable. It runs extraordinarily slow in outline mode, though. Some example operations that run slow: nudging the rectangle with the arrow keys, space-bar panning.
    4. Yes, with the grid in front, the performance improves dramatically
    5. I have grid lines set to 8px with 8 subdivisions

    Attached is a trace captured in Apple Instruments. Run 1 shows preview mode with grids in front. Run 2 shows preview mode with grids in back. Run 3 shows outline mode with grids in front. Run 4 shows outline mode with grids in back. In all four runs, I attempted to hold spacebar and drag pan the artboard in circles around my screen.

    My Mac is a 2018 3.2 GHz i7 Intel Mac mini with 32 GB RAM, and I'm running Illustrator with UI Scaling set to its smallest setting on an old-school Apple Thunderbolt Display at its native 2560 × 1440 resolution.

    My grid settings haven't changed for a long time, so this issue is unlikely to have been introduced much before the issue was reported.

    I have now tested v26.3.1 as noted, and while it has apparently made a significant improvement for me, Outline View still runs much more slowly when grids in back is enabled.

    I've posted a short recording demonstrating the difference in performing a series of nudges when grids in back is switched off and then when it is switched on here: https://twitter.com/kitgrose/status/1526809781121732608

    I can also confirm this issue still persists for me in the Illustrator 26.3.0 release. In fact if anything the issue has gotten worse for me.

    I've separately installed the 26.4.0 beta build and the issue is not resolved in that release either. On a 24 pixel square document with a 1px grid showing, attempting to open Outline View doesn't do anything but trigger the beachball cursor on my 2018 i7 Mac mini for at least a couple of *minutes*.

    This issue is not specific to Big Sur (it also affects the same version of Illustrator running on Mojave).

    It's not specific to even moderately complex documents. As a test I created an empty 16px square document, opened Outline preview then attempted to scroll around the document (with both the hand tool and the scroll wheel). My CPU fans spun up pretty much immediately and the rest of the interface becomes entirely unresponsive (e.g. opening menus). I've attached a screen recording for reference.

    My machine is a Mac mini (2018) 3.2 GHz Intel Core i7 with 32 GB of RAM.

    This has been improved, but not fixed for me in v26.3.1.

    When I view artwork at 100% in pixel preview mode, I get smoothing artefacts, but if I zoom in and out (or manually set the zoom to 100%) they go away.

    This new setting is valuable for print documents but inherently absurd for pixel preview, which no longer previews your artwork at pixel size by default.

    The issue appears to be that the snapping is still broken when the cursor is near the artboard boundary, but is working when the cursor moves far enough away. That leaves a very tiny area where the behaviour works as desired.

    I've recorded a video demonstrating how this issue is simultaneously fixed and still broken: https://twitter.com/kitgrose/status/1224137775949025280
