Im having trouble doing something that I would think is ridiculously easy, but I can't find any posts regarding purging "cache". Once apon a time I could go to preferences > file handling > Clear Chache. It's like it was completely removed. My computer is going ridiculously slow when I have Illustrator open. I assume its and excesive amount of RAM thats being used by cache.
So. . . Is there a way to clear/purge all of illustrators cache? With the exception of Settings of coarse. I also use Astute Graphics. I don't want to do anything that might affect that.
