Since we have updated to Illustrator 2021, on one of our machines (Mac mini 2018) "View unsing GPU" (CMD+E) is greyed out and can’t be activated. GPU IS activated in the Illustrator Preferences! Using Illustrator 2020, this function works as usual.
An other glitch, that we noticed on both of our machines (the 2018 mini and a 2019 iMac): When opening a document in Illustrator 2021, the window turns black for a moment until the document is shown. This does not really cause any problems, it is just strange and does not occure with Illustrator 2020.
No, unfortunately the update did not fix this issue. Everything still behaves like described.
nope updated, still does not work for us 😞
New 2020 3.3 imac - latest illustrator - "view using GPU" greys out when you turn rulers on / change workspace...
Same problem here with both my Macbook Pro M1 and my iMac 2019 (i9, Vega48). It seems to be a general problem with Mac OS or Adobe Ai because it affects Intel and Apple Silicon machines.
It is getting even stranger. On the iMac, where the GPU preview seemed to work, I was editing a document with GPU preview active and when I place a tiff image in my artwork, Illustrator instantly switches to CPU preview and GPU preview gets greyed out.
Adobe, before adding any new features, that nobody needs, PLEASE fix the basic functionaly!!!
And yes, I am using v 25.2...
