If you're experiencing slower performance in Adobe Illustrator CC 2015 when working with MAPublisher and map data, it could be the cause of two settings in Illustrator Preferences:
- Automatically Save Recovery Data
- GPU Performance
Disabling these options will improve performance.
To turn off Automatically Save Recovery Data, go to Illustrator Preferences > File Handling & Clipboard. Under the Data Recovery section, uncheck the Automatically Save Recovery Data Every check box.
Having introduced some background information about text insertion point coordinate values in a previous post, it would be good to explore if this method works when trying to place text objects (annotations/labels) with a specific offset value. For example, if you have a point layer and there is an attribute for the offset value so that every object has a different offset value.
Update: MAPublisher 9.6 is fully compatible with Adobe Illustrator CC 2015.
This is an extremely important announcement concerning the release of Adobe CC 2015 and compatibility with MAPublisher and Geographic Imager.
Drawing inspiration from this Safe software blog post we have developed an FME workflow that allows the user to update multiple MAPublisher templates with additional layers using two workspaces and a workspacerunner transformer.
