Hi guys, I just wonder, why the scroll speed is so slow when you zoom in at something?, whats the reason of this?, can it be modified somewhere?.
I have the same problem with CS6. I read older posts regarding the same issue with other Adobe products (namely Photoshop). http://forums.adobe.com/message/2879812
An apparent staff member recognized it was a problem. I would assume it eventually got fixed. Regardless, it's very cumbersome.
I just upgraded from CS5 and am encountering this as well. Zoomed out and I can pan very quickly around my document, but both zooming and panning around while zoomed in is excruciatingly slow and most of my pan scroll motions just move the document a tiny fraction of an inch. If you pause your pan motion before letting go of the mouse button it then pans the complete distance. The further I'm zoomed in the slower it gets, 300% is about perfect but closer than that it starts degrading. It also seems to be restricted to horizontal panning and not vertical.
This isn't a complex document at all with just a few lines of text and a couple shapes in black and white. It happens in both outline and preview view and I also tried outlining all my text to rule that out. My other documents also exhibit this but at slightly different degrees.
You guys have noticed sometimes in Illustraotr, walking with the Hand Tool to search the itens on the artboards, it seems like the ram memory i think, slowly the image when moves. This problem happens time to time.. don't happen frequently.
Another thing, Illustrator CS6 closes claiming error with the program. This happens frequently and i think this problem started after Adobe launch the last AI update.
I don't know if it's an issue most people never notice or it's specific to my setup, but I've been forced to go back to working in CS5 to get work done, so much happier. Not a fan of the cartoonish and space wasting panels of CS6 either.
I'm using CC and Mac OS today, and had slow scroll problems too. I fixed it by adjusting the scroll wheel speed setting in system preferences. Made the scroll much better.
Windows should have a similar option in the control panel that adjusts the scroll speed.
If this bumps up the thread, and there's a setting with Illustrator itself to set scroll speed, I'm all ears.
