    Hi,

    After having investigated the issue with some users , we have been able to find a reproducible scenario for this issue which is due to using a specific color profile which is Generic-CMYK.

    Our team is working on fixing this issue on priority.Until the issue is fixed please follow the below steps as a workaround :

    1. Go to Edit → Color Settings
    2. Under Settings set the default color profile → North America General Purpose 2
    3.Press OK

    Then try creating new document.

    Incase with the above workaround still the issue is observed at your end, please let us know in the comments .

    With Best Regards,
    Aishwarya G Gadodia

    First Upload did not work...
    Here a video of the Problem. Only way to fix it is switching back to 25.0...
    But using an outdated Version while paying for the newest can’t be the solution.

    While some of the glitches we had seem to be fixed (at least on my iMac here), there is still some strange behaviour that seems to occur on every version newer than 25.0:

    Everytime I open a document, the workspace turns black for a moment. That is not a big problem, but strange, as it never happened in 25.0 or older.

    Second, there a quite often problems in refreshing the display, when moving around in the illustration or copying/dragging objects around. The display gets crippled (blank spaces, where they should not be) and I have to force a refresh to see the propper illustration again.

    Hey Adobe, what about one year of not implementing any "new great features" and just fixing all those bugs? Just dreaming...

    By the way... the "magic link" for commenting here, also does not work reliable... needs several tries most of the time to get the mail...

    This GPU-Bug is really crazy as it comes in so many incarnations. It seems, that nearly everybody has a slightly different scenario with this bug. I switched back to 25.0 as it seems (at least for me) to be the last working version regarding this bug. But using an old version while paying for the newest features can’t be the solution... ADOBE: FIX THIS! (and all the other bugs, before even thinking of implementing any new "fantastic" features)

    Also tried 25.2.1 (Mac, Catalina) and discovered a new bug: Objects temporarily dissapear (kind of flicker) when dragging with GPU-View. Going back to 24.3. Again.

    This might be one way to force the bug to happen. But I had this also without raster files beeing involved, so there seem to be some more ways to trigger it...

    That’s the problem with subscriptions: You pay for the newest version, but you have to use the old version, until all bugs are fixed... It’s March 2021 and we are forced to use Illustrator 2020, because the actual version is not reliable.... Maybe, when Illustrator 2022 is released, we got a bug free version of Illustrator 2021...

    Since we have updated to Illustrator 2021, on one of our machines (Mac mini 2018) "View unsing GPU" (CMD+E) is greyed out and can’t be activated. GPU IS activated in the Illustrator Preferences! Using Illustrator 2020, this function works as usual.

    An other glitch, that we noticed on both of our machines (the 2018 mini and a 2019 iMac): When opening a document in Illustrator 2021, the window turns black for a moment until the document is shown. This does not really cause any problems, it is just strange and does not occure with Illustrator 2020.

    Having tested everything for some days It is getting even stranger. On the iMac, where the GPU preview seemed to work, I was editing a document with GPU preview active and when I place a tiff image in my artwork, Illustrator instantly switches to CPU preview and GPU preview gets greyed out.

    Adobe, before adding any new features, that nobody needs, PLEASE fix the basic functionality!!!

    You are so right, nicky... I miss the precision of snapping in Macromedia Freehand everyday that I use Illustrator. Snapping in Illustrator behaves weird, inaccurate, illogical and having to use third party tools for a function that should be essential is just embarrising. I also miss the accoustic feedback from Freehand. I could always be absolutely sure, that everything is exactly in place. In Illustrator I often have to zoom in, to double check and have do pick up an object twice to get it snap where I want it to... And that are just 2 examples. Over the years , after acquiring Freehand, Adobe implemented quiet a few useful features from it (even if it took years...) So now, Adobe, please make snapping in Illustrator just as accurate and easy like it was in Freehand decades ago. Snapping in Illustrator sucked from the very first day and it still does...

    It still does not work well. In Freehand, I always could be sure, that everything snapped as it should. I even had acoustic feedback. In Illustrator I always have to zoom in and check, if everything is in place - and most of the time it is not! You just can’t trust in snapping with Illustrator and that is really a shame after all the years...

    @Yngve: ARTVIEW does NOT work with Big Sur and actually it does not seem, that this will be fixed. The website has not been updated for ages and I have been asking the Support, if/when Big Sur will be supported: Months ago they answered, that they are investigating, now they don’t even answer anymore. So ARTVIEW does not seem to be a solution anymore and waiting for a fix from Adobe is.... well... we all know.

    Well if it worked before they broke it, "average hardware" seems a bad argument to me. For example my iMac 2019 should be powerful enough to handle this (but I have this bug, too - also on other computers). It is just one of many bugs in Illustrator and if it does not appear on your machine, you are lucky. But don’t tell people to buy new hardware, because Adobe broke their software....

    Unchecking Real-Time Drawing is just a poor workaround and not a fix! Adobe introduced even more GPU related Bugs with Illustrator 2021! Come on Adobe, don’t think of adding useless new features - FIX the existing ones, that we need to use every day!

    Same here... seems as if with every bug they fix, 3 new bugs will appear... Workaround (kind of): switch to wireframe mode for dragging guides. This bug ist really embarrassing.

    Freehand had this feature an it was very usefull. You could group objects from different layers and when you ungrouped them, they went back to their original layers.

    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

    Other programms (like Freehand) have been more reliable in snapping 20 years ago... But I don’t expect any improvements in the next 20 years, as the few implemented improvements that I have been waiting for took at least one decade...

    I have to specify: on Retina in Textframes the cursor is HARDLY VISIBLE, in palette fields (like colour names) it is NEARLY INVISIBLE... (you need very good eyes to see that there is even something, in fact, you can only guess a slight change of colour, where the cursor is blinking!)

    Cursor is extremely thin on Macs with Retina Displays. When working with text, sometimes it is hardly visible. Settings for changing the scaling of the UI will not change this

    Hi Everyone,

    We have fixed this bug in our latest release – v 24.2.1 which is available worldwide now. Thanks for your patience on this.

    Please note that after upgrading you might still see that Align To sets itself to Align to Key Object. If you see this, please manually set the Align To to the required setting, and this reported bug will not happen again. You’ll need to this one time only.

    The reason Align To might get set to Key Object after update is because Ai remembers your last Align To on subsequent launches as well. So, if your last Align To was Key Object before quitting/upgrading, after first multi-selection, it will set itself to Key Object. After you manually change it one-time, it will work fine.

    You can update to the latest release using Creative Cloud desktop App: https://helpx.adobe.com/in/creative-cloud/help/creative-cloud-updates.html

    Since updating to 24.2 (Mac, Mojave) there is always a key object (the one that I would normally select to align other objects to) automatically activated, when selecting more than one object. This does not affect workflow in any way but is visually annoying, if you don’t need the key object.
