Hi there,

 

Really sorry to hear about this. We have released an update recently (1.0.3) with stability and bug fixes. Please update the app from the App Store and check if that helps. If not, please share the following details.

 

Does the app crash as soon as you launch it? If yes, please share some additional details so that we can assist you further. We'd need the crash logs which you could share with me over a direct message.

Hi,

 

I am using the most recent version of Illustratrator for the new iPad Air 4, with the Apple 2 pencil.

Unfortunately I'm experiencing the same and some additional issues:

-App crashes

-Unable to access certain pieces of work: when attempting to open certain 'faulty'  pieces, another piece of work opens or when managing to open a 'faulty' piece, the area is all black or all white and no matter how much zooming in or out, there is no image viewable.

-Layers are starting to behave strangely, such as visible layers is still invisible 

 

Please help with some steps or advice as I'm loosing precious art wok that I have spent hours on, and now fearful to use Illustrator on the iPad.

Turns out my specific file was my biggest problem (unfortunately still no idea why - I left the link to the file with Adobe support). I re-made it and it worked better, but it still crashed intermittently. At least I could get some work done in between re-launching AI.

Hi,

 

I am also having this issue. My iPad meets all the specifications. The application crashes when I use the apple pencil. It seems that if I have the pencil pressed to the screen for too long, the app crashes and closes itself. Any advice on how I can get this to work better?

The main post is 2 years old and people are still suffering from this issue. This is ridiculous! I'm sitting here for hours on a piece just for the app to crash and I lose it all. My time and money is being wasted. This was the only reason bought an iPad and my school strictly uses AI so I don't have a choice.  If I didn't have honestly I would use Procreate. This so sad this company is trash and doesn't care about its customers. FIX THIS APP NOW ARTIST ARE SUFFERING. and yes my iPad is the right specs and the app is updated.

I'm having the same issues. My ipad meets all the requirements. I spent a LOT of money on creative cloud, and I keep losing work. 
I use illustrator for work, and it keeps crashing when i'm making free hand illustrations (without apple pencil, just with index finger).

 

This is extremely frustrating. Ultimately it crashes after just mere seconds.

 

PLEASE HELP!
