Leaving aside the whole issue of OS compatibility and cloud subscription (of which Im not a fan), the new version absolutely screams. It took Adobe years to add GPU acceleration to Illustrator after Photoshop got it back in CS6. If you are working on large multi layered art, this is a solid upgrade.

Whilst I still use Illustrator CS6, because I am very familiar with it, the subscription model and sense of 3 decades of frustrations with a bloated UI means I am moving on to Sketch and the new boy Affinity Designer which looks really REALLY hot: https://affinity.serif.com/beta-download/ Adobe's problems are that whilst it has the mature software. that works with difficulties, they have never sat down and rethought how they should work. Just bolted on ever more feature requests to the point you can never find anything. A lot of the Adobe features i want don't work. e.g. Batch processing won't do the very things I want it to do, such as colour mode and auto save to format of my choice. It can just be a massive waste of time. I want my timer back thank you. Don't even bother going to the Indesign User Groups any more because it feels like a time warp.

I’m not quite sure why this update took so long to show up on MacUpdate because CC 2014 was released a couple of months ago. Regardless, if you have a Creative Cloud subscription you start to look at Adobe updates in a new light. Updates just happen, whenever, and you never have to worry about ordering a new version of the Creative Suite since the updates are automatic and immediately available for downloading. Sometimes there aren’t a lot of obvious changes between a new version and the version that preceded it, such as between Illustrator CC 2014 and original CC. If anything, some noticeable “improvements” aren’t: a login screen that never goes away unless you can find a way to turn it off (rather than being in interface preferences, the on/off switch for this feature is hidden) and TypeKit integration which is both annoying and confusing. But if you’re a professional, Creative Cloud apps such as Illustrator are essential and the integration between Illustrator, Photoshop and InDesign is unmatched. (Who even is Adobe’s competition? Microsoft? Corel? Quark? I don’t think so.) InDesign imports raw AI and PSD files; AI can open and edit PDF files saved by Photoshop and InDesign. Illustrator files can be copied and pasted into Photoshop and remain live and editable. The list of features is endless. And over time, they keep getting better.

Great "professional" illustration software. Most of my logo and other illustrations are made through this software. I know there are alternatives but they are not even as feature rich and customisation through add ons. Clearly this is for my work that's why i'm fine with Creative Cloud payment scheme. Anyway you get a lot from the service. Hobbyists or other value seekers should try the alternatives because this is not for you.

Did anyone proof this update? The What's new section makes it look like it added a bunch of bugs, except for the last item... Zoom does not work, keyboard combos stop working, cannot save, all layers saved converged, even when deselected, etc., etc., etc. Also, I thought Adobe CC apps required 10.7 or later? Can people on 10.6.8 finally use Adobe CC apps?

I do about 80% of my logo design work in Adobe Illustrator CC, and I start in Illustrator for all of the initial designs of my commercial typefaces that are marketed by FontHaus and Agfa Monotype. Illustrator has been one my most indispensable design tools. There are many less expensive alternatives, but none as feature rich.

I have never liked illustrator much. Always thought FreeHand was way better. I don't think it is realistic to revive FreeHand due to how long ago it has been killed off. Bohemian Coding's Sketch looks really interesting and not bloated. I will be keeping a really close eye on that app. It does not make sense for Adobe to be charging this much for software this bad.

I have used Illustrator since the mid-1990s — before blends were a click away, and you had to create 2 layers. So, I know this software inside and out. But despite all that, avoid Adobe Applications if you can. Put your money into a better company, and let’s sink this floating excrement ship of a company, because Adobe getting worse even after creating a de-facto monopoly. Their products used to work, but now they are just work. Adobe’s entire suite is a nightmare to install on a modern file system (read “case-sensitive”) — which I knew, and Adobe’s tech support is not staffed by actual technicians, so they were unable to help me. They told me I could install it on another Hard Drive, even after I told them, I am on a laptop, and I didn’t feel like rebuilding my tuned system for one ill-behaved program. I eventually had to jury rig it into place myself, thanks to a bit of understand of what files were blocking me from running the app. But every launch the App complains that my install is damaged and that I need to reinstall it. It still likes to crash randomly, so save often. I have decided to look for something else, after the current project I purchased it for is complete. Adobe treats paying customers like criminals or slaves because they have a monopoly on the pro-layout (vector & bitmap) market. It doesn’t matter if you spent $600 on the app. I lost 10 billable hours (over half was spent dealing with various clueless Adobe Tech Support Personnel) thanks to Adobe’s callous behavior toward me when I asked them questions above their technical support departments understanding. Even their supervisor told me to make my library writable to everyone. She didn’t know what chmod meant (a very old, very basic UNIX command that controls permissions). She asked me to be more specific when I asked her is she meant “chmod 777?” I kid you not. I recommend anyone that doesn’t know Illustrator go find something else, and hopefully the company behind that vector program will get enough sales to advance the feature set. This is the last time I ever purchase anything from Adobe, I think there is a huge market for a more user friendly and competent vector program because Adobe has abandoned its users because they can as long as people still buy their products.

Somebody, please bring FreeHand back. I don't need Photoshop. But I need an alternative to Illustrator. During my entire existence, I'll never pay a subscription fee to Microsoft for Office or Adobe for Illustrator or to Symantec for their antivirus software. La vida no es facil. My Spanish teacher was right after all.

Adobe needs to do a complete rewrite of Photoshop and Illustrator. There is probably still code in there from 1990. Make them fast and modern and get rid of all the bloat. They say on their site that the new graphics engine makes the apps faster, but using them almost every day I have evidence otherwise.

Adobe killed FreeHand which was far superior to Illustrator at the time. Today, if you are a professional you have to use Illustrator if you like it or not and pay a premium price to do so. Unfortunately Adobe is gotten very greedy and it is using its financial power to strengthen a monopolistic position without offering any real benefits to its customers. Paying that kind of money for over bloated software which is still - after all these years - very slow at basic things like redrawing and saving complex files... I sincerely hope that a developer eventually will come up with a viable alternative that also works in a professional environment.

$600 application and I get the same "Update Failed, Updates could not be applied, This update is not applicable to you" as others. Also, it doesn't show up in AAM for me either. System requirements says 10.6.8 or later. I'm on 10.8.1, Illustrator CS 6 16.0.0 with a supported Core2Duo CPU. Another fail from Adobe, I expect a lot more for the cost of the CS 6 Master Collection.

Adobe Illustrator -- in fact, all of Adobe's products -- were the "must have" apps for designers in the 1990s. Unfortunately, they are still the "must have" apps: Not because they have kept up with technology or even improved in a useful way, but because they have managed to patent just about every piece of the package, making it impossible for anyone else to truly innovate in this field. Meanwhile, they continue to raise the price of each upgrade without improving stability or valuable feature sets. You'll buy this because you have to; not because you want to.

Just a word about upgrading to Illustrator CS5... Adobe has a very terrible policy and an even worse implementation of information on their upgrade policy for any Adobe graphics/web products!! As we found out the hard way, Adobe will not allow you to upgrade your previous (in this case) Illustrator software if it was part of the Creative Suite bundle. So regardless of the fact that you have a folder on your computer that is named Adobe Illustrator CSx with a program inside named Adobe Illustrator CSx that when opened presents a splash screen stating Adobe Illustrator CSx, you in fact do not have an eligible version. In addition, other than a small link at the bottom of the page leading you to an upgrade eligibility "tool" page (which in turn gives a rather ambiguous answer), nothing informs you of what is or is not required to upgrade other than a copy of "Adobe Illustrator CS4, CS3 or CS2"...of which I indeed have. After 30 minute of inane questions from online chat support, they agreed to provide a refund w/ my Amazon.com receipt. We shall see if Adobe, first indeed provides a full refund, and second, how long it will take such a refund to emerge. In any case, this is a terrible policy and further evidence that ADOBE SUCKS!!!! SO PLEASE BE CERTAIN BEFORE YOU PURCHASE THIS UPGRADE THAT YOU ARE UPGRADING FROM AN INDIVIDUAL COPY OF ILLUSTRATOR; NOT ONE THAT CAME WITH CREATIVE SUITE. (FYI...I'd rather read a Russian newspaper upside-down than watch a Flash ad!)

This program has been much maligned not on its own merit, in my opinion, but more due to the general discontent towards Adobe. I myself have experienced the apparent slow-down over time, as well as the onset of "weird" behavior not originally exhibited. I was hoping that the 15.0.2 update would fix these anomalies, but it did not happen. In fact, the problems became worse. I then decided to reinstall Illustrator. The uninstaller app, or rather its alias, can be found in the same folder as the application. The uninstall-reinstall-update procedure took no more than 15 minutes and now the program is running very well—better than ever. It now takes about 5 seconds to launch on my ageing MacPro3,1 (with several hundred fonts active in the system). It seems like Illustrator is susceptible to degradation and damage over time, but it's not an issue that a fresh installation can't remedy.

Is it just me, getting impatient in my old age, or is Illustrator getting slower with each new release? (I started in '92 with 3.0) I skipped CS3 so I was very anxious to fire up CS4 when it arrived. After all, I've had a screaming octocore (6 GB RAM) for almost a year now and CS3 has been putting around in Rosetta. Can you imagine my frustration when I discovered Illustrator CS4 actually ran slower than CS2 on my 8 core MacPro? Damn it! Its totally unresponsive when dragging the hand at 800x. I mean, I don't even get a frigging beach ball. It just sits there and totally ignores my attempt to pan. Fortunately, I don't have these problems in Photoshop. But I have to earn my living with Illustrator (consumer package design) and this is absurd. I had to strike while the corporate iron was willing and got my 8 core off the shelf at MicroCenter so it admittedly has the slower video card. But all that I have read says you only need the top card for 3D graphics. Am I wrong? And one more thing, I use Menu Meters so I've always got a visual representation on processor load. Well, I have yet to see Illustrator CS4 using more than one core at a time. I might as well go back to Rosetta. Somebpdy, please help me !!!!!

To force the updater to run regardless of checksum errors or the existance of such important files as ReadMe.PDF, do the following :) download the update mount the disk image drag the updater to the desktop eject the mounted disk image control-click the updater on the desktop and select "show package contents" open the resources folder open the tools folder open validateManifest.pl in TextEdit scroll to bottom change print "$filePath: source checksum($srcChecksum) does not match actual checksum($actualChecksum)\n"; return 1 to print "$filePath: source checksum($srcChecksum) does not match actual checksum($actualChecksum)\n"; return 0 (note that all we are changing is the return 1 to return 0 so that it does not report an error even if the file does not exist or does not exactly match the checksum that is expected.) save the changes and overwrite if asked run the updater If your copy is messed up then you may end up having to reinstall but this procedure worked fine on my Illustrator CS2 install from which I had removed the ReadMe files and other senseless Adobe trash.

from Adobe's site: ----------------------- IMPORTANT NOTE: When installing the Illustrator CS2 12.0.1 update, you may receive the error message, "Fail to install due to an error" and the update does not install. This occurs if you have removed or renamed an Illustrator CS2 file before running the updater. An example would be that you removed the ReadMe file or ran a maintenance utility, which removes the Illustrator foreign language files. To resolve this issue, reinstall Illustrator and then run the updater again. ---------------------- I always knew those damn read me files were used for something...

the above text is a bit ambigous ... adobe's talking about aics2 v1.0 (which is actually v12.0 according to my installed app) in one para and then moving on to v11.02 in the next, 'what's new' para i know the link gets you the v12 demo, but why the confusion in the description? i wish the promo dept at adobe would make up their collective minds ...

direct select pen tool does not work with tiger!!! making this app useless. every time you try and select a point, the arrow focuses on the finder rather than within illustrator. (indication: pay attention as you move over a point using the direct select tool. the arrow's appearance switches from white to black w/drop shadow)

here are the install instructions from adobe's website. i had to doublechck to make sure it wasn't april 1st.... ----------------------------------- Installation instructions After downloading a DMG file on a Macintosh, double-click the file to mount the disk image to your desktop using Apple's Disk Utility. 1. Quit Illustrator CS. 2. Open the Adobe Illustrator CS folder (to locate this folder, search the computer for a folder named Adobe Illustrator CS). 3. In the Finder, choose View > As List, and locate the application file. (The Finder lists the application file as an “Application” by Kind.) 4. Control-click the application icon and choose Show Package Contents. 5. Navigate to the Contents/MacOSClassic folder 6. Create a new folder and name it AICS 11.0.2 backup. Then copy the AGMCarbonPrint+PSInjLib and the BibUtilsCarbonLib files by holding down the Option key and dragging the files to the new folder. This creates copies of the files for backup purposes. 7. Copy the newly downloaded AGMCarbonPrint+PSInjLib and the BibUtilsCarbonLib files to the Contents/MacOSClassic folder. When Mac OS returns the message “The files already exist in the location. Do you want to replace it with the one you are moving?” click Replace. 8. Close all open windows. 9. Start Illustrator CS. --------------------------------

Adobe buy little french buggy 3D app called Satellite, fixes the worst bugs and sell it as Dimensions. The best vector app ever, with animation and multiple cameras and more. Then Adobe put some - but not all - functions in Illustrator. But they skip the best parts: No animation, no camera movements and worst of all, no 3DMF export to rendering apps such as Bryce! Then Adobe kill Dimensions. How smart is that? If you have a copy of Dimensions, keep it! It runs fine in Classic, and keyboard shortcuts work fine as long as Swedes and others switch keyboard layout to US English.

What kind of B.S. update is this? No installer? No version number? No way to keep track of this should you need to reinstall later? Someone must have wanted to get this out the door before leaving for the holidays, for it smacks of laziness. I expect crap updates like this from newbie developers, not Adobe.

ok. the procedure for the update leaves much to wish but the issues of bug fixes are very important. Thanx Adobe for fixing them. The crashes were a pain in the... and please, make more automated updates in the future.

After all this time, this is the only update that Adobe could come up with? They still have not addressed the font preview bug which I reported several days after CS came out. If they can't fix it, they should at least remove the feature so we don't fall into the trap of triggering it.

11.0.2. I have to open up the package contents and replace to files for this update? I thought we were done with this crap after InDesign 2 updates. I'd expect this lazyness from a small developer but we can't even get a .pkg that asks for your Adobe Illustrator CS folder and then replaces the 2 files for you? This is ridiculous. How am I suppose to update this with Apple Remote Desktop? I could do this with a .pkg in seconds. Now it's going to take hours. And Illustrator still says it's 11.0.0....wtf!

Works like a charm in Panther. A bit slow. Stable but still has a few bugs. The best anyway.

Purchased CS package about a month ago. Illustrator works, kinda but crashes every time I close a file window. It happens on both my G4 and G5. For the money they are asking you would think they would get such obvious bug fixed. For now, you can never close any files before you are conpletely done working with Illustrator. Hopefully they will get an upgrade out quickly

Works pretty well on my computers, but I've seen some weird bugs on friend's machines. Anyway, it is a good app but a bit slow.

Large files can run into "Can't Preview" errors. "Can't Save" errors are also common with large multi linked files. Slow Startup. NOT Stable

I have had no luck with this updater. It never locates the correct folder, and there is no way to choose an installation destination. Any ideas?

Soooooooooooo slow. 30 seconds for the print dialog box to appear is just wrong! Problems printing non outlined fonts I'm still using it but It's like I have had my computer down graded.
