Illustrator CS6 - Selection Tool drag lag?

Mar 15, 2013 12:31 PM

Does anyone else experience lag when dragging the Selection Tool around (for instance, when dragging to select multiple objects on the screen) in Illustrator CS6? When I drag the Selection Tool, Illustrator takes a second to show the dotted line. It doesn't prevent me from working, but it is pretty annoying.


The weird part is, it only seems to happen when I create a new document using a "Video and Film" profile (any of the sizes). When I create a new document using a "Print" profile or "Web" profile (again, any size), the Selection Tool acts fine— there's no lag.


I'm on an iMac 3.4ghz 32gb ram, so I don't think it could be the computer itself.


Any help would be appreciated!

    Try creating a new document with no preset profile, one with RGB and another with cmyk. If the RGB document hangs, you may wabt to look/change at what color profile you are using for RGB.
