Hello,

 

I'm trying to teach myself Illustrator, but having issues from the start.

After creating a document, anything I draw or any image I place will not show in my document (on the screen). As I draw things or place images and even move them around, I can see them appearing/moving on the layers thumbnail, but not visible on screen. I have been toggling hide/show layer.

 Any help would be much appreciated.

 

Thank You

Can you check if you are in outline mode? (Cmd or Ctrl Y) And maybe switch between CPU/GPU preview (Cmd or Ctrl E)

Thank you Ton!

Ctrl E worked. I was thinking I had issues with my computer, but that has worked.

Thanks again.
