Following the update to AI 25.2, I've been experiencing a host of new issues with AI, including but not limited to:
As a carryover from the previous update, the function of dragging to select text in fields is still broken.
I have also noticed a number of those "Adobe CEP HTML Engine" instances in the task manager. Also maybe not related but after since the 25.2 update that got installed yesterday, after I close out of Illustrator and try to reopen Illustrator later I get a message indicating a previous session is open already. One way to get around that is to end task in the Task Manager or reboot the computer. I find that sometimes, the "Adobe Illustrator 2021" is not in the Task Manager, therefore I'm forced to reboot the computer. Anyone else seeing that also? I did remove previous versions(2019 and 2020) of Illustrator and rebooted thinking that might have had some affect on that but that didn't seem to help any.
I have since noticed another issue regarding AI 25.2 of a similar nature.
After closing AI, I went to delete an obsolete AI file that had been open in the session that I just finished. For some reason, the AI file was saying that it was still open in another program. I checked Task Manager and didn't see Adobe Illustrator 2021, the AdobeSplashKit.GraphicWindowClass, or AIRobin 2021 open anywhere. All of the instances of Adobe CEP HTML Engine had closed down as well.
It seemed that somehow AI was still open and holding the undesired AI file in open memory somewhere despite not showing up in the Task Manager. I had to restart my computer to clear up whatever was happening so that I could delete the AI file. Restarting my PC seems to have temporarily resolved this particular issue, as I was unable to replicate having a ghost of AI running after closing AI without Task Manager finding it or the ghost copy preventing the deletion of a file that was just open. That said, I hope this doesn't become a recurring issue.
I am now receiving a warning when I open the program.
I "continued with known issues..." and the program appeared to work and save fine. However, I'm worried because the newest version of Premiere pro has been rendered unusable to me because of updates.
Does anyone have any advice to fix this? I'm not a computer expert by any means, but I understand how to update my drivers. My drivers are fully up to date. I never received this warning before the new update.
Thanks for any direction.
I've personally had to rollback to AI 25.1 as the 25.2 update has rendered AI unusable.
Hopefuly Adobe will address the roots of the AI 25.2 issues in the next bugs fix / update.
Thanks, I appreciate your response and advice. I will be doing that. I am wondering if anyone else had experienced this also. I hope they fix it as I really like this program a lot!
exactly the same issues using 25.2, deleted & reinstalled 25.1...no more problems!
Hi. Eye dropper tool disappeared
my favorite tool is gooooone
I am also having issues with this version. Crashes at will, and usually right when I'm saving a complex file which is, as you might imagine, incredibly infuriating. Also, the software is not recovering the document upon reopening even though I've plainly made that the case in my preferences. Adobe, please look at this version, it needs help!!
