I'm using Illustrator version 25.0 on MacBook Pro running macOS Catalina. Suddenly everything in the Libraries panel shrinks (first screenshot), and I can't do much with it it. If I close and reopen Illustrator, it goes back to normal (second screenshot). This has happened a few times to me. Any idea how to keep this from happening?

Thanks for your response. It was not a specific file. If it happens again, I will try turning off the GPU Performance. I did have some computer updates after my initial post. So if I'm lucky, that solves it all, and it won't happen anymore.

I know that's the go to thing, and I had done that previously. Just not this last time it happened.

Hi there,

 

Sorry to hear about your experience. Does it happen with a specific file or all? You may also try turning off GPU Performance under Preferences > Performance and see if it helps.

Looking forward to your response.

 

Regards,

Ashutosh

I haven't had any more issues with mine lately with the shrinking. I believe I had the enlarging thing too once or twice back then. Resetting preferences didn't solve it for me. I had some computer updates around that time. I think that may be what solved it. I believe I also tried turnining on and/or off the GPU acceleration.
