I know that this issue seems to have been posted a number of times, but I'm wondering if I am somehow doing something different.
I am running Adobe Illustrator on Monterey 12.2. It has been working fine until a couple of days ago when I was getting a message box saying that it cannot save my .ai files. I am occassionally able to save it as a PDF, but if I try to then save that as an AI I get the same error message.
For a bit I was able to workaround this by not saving my files to a specific folder I created (for instance if that file originated in the download folder, I would save an edited version in the same download folder and that would work?) However, now it's not letting me save at all. It's not a matter of saving copies because I can't even save a file that was fine, say, a week ago.
I've tried a couple of the work arounds here, but no dice. I really need this program to work as I have clients who are on super tight deadlines and in diffefent time zones. A day trying to fix this issue can lead to weeks in delay.
Any help would be appreciated!
Try making a new profile on your Mac.
Did you try to turn OFF Preferences > File Handling > Save in Background?
Just tried that, and it seems like it works. Does this setting reset every time I relaunch the program?
It should stick. Good to hear that worked. Adobe engineering is aware of the problem and working on it.
Sounds great. Thank you for the help!
Running 12.3 Monterey - tried the suggestion above - still not working. M1 laptop. From the threads it looks like this has been happening since late last year - Adobe what's going on?
Update your system to 12.3.1 and Illustrator to 26.2.1 and it should be solved.
I had the same problem and tried everything but in the end I had to move the sve box to my other screen and it worked. Not sure how to fix it but at least i can work for now!
