In the last few years, I'm finding bugs constantly. Something has happened at Adobe at a time when these tools are costing me more than ever, reliability is getting worse and worse. I'm finding new bugs as soon as I launch the new updates lately. I'm not sure what I can do about this. I can't make time to be an unpaid beta tester, constantly reporting bugs, doing videos to illustrate them, etc.
Agreed. With all of the lost files, reverting to old versions to save work, lags and crashes, not to mention all of the little bugs with color sampling or floating/missing graphics, getting stuck in CPU view (these just off the top of my head in the last two days), we've actually discussed alternative software that won't add hours to our work. There are glitches that remain or return after literally years of updates. I love new features, but wouldn't mind skipping out on them for a year or two if it meant having functional software for once.
Yes, I would happily skip new features for awhile and instead just let Adobe deal with all the bugs that are getting introduced with each update. Something has happened with Adobe in the way they develop their software and they really need to get it back in control.
Apologies for the delayed response. I have shared your feedback with the team. Is there any specific issue you're talking about? We'd also request you to share the version of OS & Illustrator.
You may share your feedback/suggestions about the app on Adobe Illustrator UserVoice(https://illustrator.uservoice.com/). This forum is monitored by engineering & they'll be happy to look into it in upcoming releases.
