I know that this problem has been discussed here before, but I couldn't find a solution that works for me.

I have an illustration of many objects that were created using the image traced. I am trying to select all these objects to create a pattern out of them, but when I am doing so I keep getting this message:

"Can't finish previewing. Could not complete the requested operation."

WHich might just be too much.

You can have them counted with the Document info panel. Set it to "Objects"

Try a restart (at least Illustrator) to clear up RAM.

I did this. Illustrator worked fine at the beginning, but then it started to crash every now and then.

Which Image Trace Method you have applied?. Try to chose low colors methods to reduce the amount of created paths and anchor points .But it depends on your task

Also you can use Live Paint.method and then expand object for creating new objects.

I've just come across this wanring after updating to 23.1

I've never seen it before and the illustration I'm looking at isn't any more complex than others I've opened.

 

FYI, the image is opened via Acrobat Pro, something I do a lot without ever having this issue.

I was getting the same error. I noticed that primarliy when the issue did not prevail, my internet connection was on but when i started getting the undesired notification, the internet was off. It is due to the fact when you have not signed in to Adobe Suite.
