Even more enhancements
In addition to new features, Illustrator CC continues to improve on the experience you know and love. You can always visit our release notes for a detailed breakdown of the additions with this release. Here are just a few of the exciting enhancements we’ve made:
Illustrator now identifies screen resolution and adjusts the display accordingly. This means there is an optimal default scaling of the interface based on the display resolution. Better yet, we’ve added the ability to set the scale of your design workspace.
Illustrator CC will now automatically adapt zoom value with resolution of the display to render artwork in actual size at 100 percent zoom. So a business card rendered as 100 percent on any screen will have the same dimensions as it would in print.
External GPU support
Illustrator can use external graphic processing units (GPU) on Macintosh computers with Thunderbolt 3 running macOS 10.13.14 and above.
This new preview method displays artwork as if it were to be printed, suppressing all non-printing objects on the artboard, like grids, guides, etc. All artwork falling outside of the artboard is hidden in this view. This new method gives you a good way to preview your final designs.
You can now use an Illustrator file to directly present your work. In this new mode, each artboard becomes a slide. The application menu, panels, guides, and frame edges are hidden so your audience can focus on your designs and not be distracted by the application.
This latest release consists of a number of under-the-hood improvements, including more than 30 fixes that have been made based on user feedback from the Illustrator User Voice page.
