i 'm working with AI 24.3 on macOS Catalina
2,4 GHz 8-Core Intel Core i9,
32 GB 2667 MHz DDR4
AMD Radeon Pro 5300M 4 GB
Illustrator responds extremely slow regardless the actions, tools or files. Restarting, rebooting, deinstallation and resetting preferences did not help.
Is this an update or did you have a previous version? nd if you had a previous version: did it work better?
Which hardware? Is it by any chance a Macbook Pro 16"?
Is the dictation turned off in the system?
Is automatic GPU detection/switching turned off as well?
Which other apps are running at the moment?
Sorry to hear about this. In addition to the suggestions given earlier, I'd request logging into root account (https://support.apple.com/en-in/HT204012) and see if you see any difference in the performance.
Let us know how it goes.
This slowness and low performance can be temporary.
Fonts you use,
Apple System Updates.
Do you try to log in a new user on the Apple system?
If you observe an increase in performance here, it may be caused by system updates, in-system add-ons and fonts.
It's time to fix this! It is horrible. MacOS 10.15.6
I cannot to any functions with AI 24.3, one click and get the beachball with a new macbook pro
Going to go back to AI 2019
I'm having the same problem on my windows PC! After sometiome, Illustrator will bog down and eventually freeze my entire computer! What is going on adobe??
AMD 3900X 12c/24t
Nvidia RTX 2060 super
32gb RAM, SSD hard drive
That's funny... that's not what Illustrator itself says!... Turns out, maybe Adobe's website and compatabilty lists are more out of date and useless than the actual, buggy program updates.
