When I open up a file the toolbars are missing, all the reset essentails stuff is greyed out and it won't let me change to another workspace. I've probably clicked tab and f a billion times, I've tried to open Ilustrator while holding down shift, contol, and alt, but nothing works. I even reinstalled Illustrator and rebooted my computer to no avail
Hi if you are using 2021 version you to check your system specs may be that is reason otherwise revert back to 2020....regards
This is going to sound like I am thinking you are stupid, but I am certainly not. Have you tried pressing the tab key. I swear I had this problem a long time ago and forgot that pressing the tab key hides the toolbars. Perhaps that is the problem. I seriously doubt it, but it would be funny if it was. No insult intended, just trying to help.
Sorry about the delay. I am hopeful that the issue was fixed. If not, please try the suggestions shared on this page (https://community.adobe.com/t5/illustrator/resolve-slow-performance-and-unexpected-behaviors-in-illu...) and let us know how it goes.
Feel free to let us know if you still need assistance. We'd be happy to help.
