3 / 5 times, when I change the fill or stroke of an object using the menu bar swatch panel, I get the beach ball of death. It will spin indefinitely. After force-quitting, recovered files typically break linked and / or embedded raster images, and I lose those elements.
This only occurs after using the menu bar swatch panel (see image). The side swatch panel works flawlessly. This has been happening for the past two illy updates.
MacBook Pro, 14 inch, M1 Pro, 2021
MacOS Ventura 13.0.1
How large is this file? Your screen shot shows you are working at 4.17%??
There are some known issues with upgrading to Ventura and a new Illustrator release for that OS has yet to be released. It could be a bug.
Ok, good to know. Hopefully this bug is known and on the squish-list. The issue has been happening consistently regardless of file size. But yes, this particular file is bigger than Adobe's Figma budget. Wish me luck.
Do you reboot that Macbook regularly?
Did you reset the preferences when updating Illustrator? You will lose all your settings, so you might want to rename the preferences folder in order to reset them. This can be undone.
I reboot daily but I have not tried a preference reset. I'll try that now.
