Hi Adobe team --

 

I just encountered an annoying save bug that caused me to lose 90 minutes of work in Illustrator. Here is the sequence of events:

 

  • I opened an existing document in AI, with the intention of changing it and saving as something else.
  • I opened preferences and made a minor UI adjustment (tweaked the size of my tool bar).
  • Dialog #1 stated that changes will not occur until you restart AI. Would you like to restart? Yes/No.
    • I selected YES (without thinking), under the assumption that I would be given the option to 'save as.'
  • Dialog #2 stated that I could either save over my existing file or trash my changes.
    • I wanted to 'save as' so that I could save the new work without writing over the existing file. Since both options were undesired and there was no way for me to back out, I chose "do not save" and lost my work.

 

I would prefer to have seen a "CANCEL" button that would have allowed me to back out of the process altogether, so that I could manually save the new work. Now, I'm forced to start over.

 

Please look into it and find a fix. Thanks.
