I'm having an issue with Illustrator CS6 resizing my UI window every time I open a file externally (double clicking on the file, rather than opening through the Illustrator open file menu). I prefer to keep my UI maximized so this is quite annoying having to maximize again every time I open a file this way. Is there a setting somewhere doing this or some way to fix it? Or is this a bug I have to deal with until an update can be made? I'm running Windows 7 Pro on a 32bit laptop, just recently upgraded from CS5.
@Dohnutt, Click and drag the document window to the inside edges of the application panel to see a blue area highlight around the application panel and then release the mouse. Then save your workspace giving it a new name. Then restart Ai.
I have got the same problem, running win7 64. The program window resizes if I open a file from Explorer (Doubleclick). Open File from Menu works fine, no resizing. That is really annoying, is there still no solution for this problem? Problem occures on Workstation and Notebook. :-(
I used to run CS4, CS5 before... everything worked fine in good old days.
Jepp. First thing to hate is the new Trace-Function (ever tried to verctoize a QR-Code with it?... inkscape does a much better job in this case) and second thing is the rauto-resizing window. If Adobe was around the corner I.... hey they are in Munich.... time to pass by .. ;-)
This is a cosmetic bug in Illustrator that is being monitored. Let's hope for a fix in the future releases of Illustrator.
Glad to here others a having this problem too.. But so far after a few months i havent found a solution either.
cosmetic? I bought software for hundreds of Euros an click right into the wrong programm (ID, PS, AE...) EVERY f*** day just because that window is resizing. That is totally annoying! It took me hours to find out if I can solve that problem. I can't. But you guys could and call it cosmetic? Wanna kiddin' me? You are monitoring? Respect! :-((
This bug is extremely annoying. Every time you choose to Edit in Illustrator from Photoshop or Indesign, the Illustrator window resizes. Sometimes the program crashes with an error message saying that the application window was to small to open the program. Why not fix it? Why call for hope if you are sitting at Adobe. You should DO something about it, not pray.
When I run an action on a serie of files illustrator sometimes shrinks the window step by step until it is so small that I get a error saying something like, couldnt open the file because the window is to small, try to enlarge it.
So this is a real bug, not only cosmetic.
Yes, I've begun to have this issue. Started as the first post mentions--just resizing like you're clicking the Restore Down button... but in the last few days it's starting having that error message, and will not open at all.
I was searching for answers too - this isn't the best situation for working big projects... the only work around I've found is that if you minimize your screen to say half size it will allow you to open documents without giving you the 'your window is too small' error...
I've been a avid AI user since 1999 (verson 5.5) and I've NEVER been so disappointed! Shame on you releasing a unfinished product.
Yes. They are big enough to do what ever they want at the moment. Maybe I should start working with inkscape or Corel Draw.... back to the roots. The Programm I started with about 20 years ago. I've heard Gimp should also becoming better and better. ;-)
