Sorry to hear about the trouble you are facing with Illustrator. Could you please navigate to Preferences > File Handling & Clipboard. There will be an option for Update Links, please select Manually and check if it solves the issue. Please refer to the screenshot.
Hi Ashutosh, Can I please have an updated solution for the 2022 version? Your solution is not possible with the most recent update. Also mildly infuriating....
Nevermind... I learned how to use my computer.
How did you stop it? I'm having same problem for 2022 version 😬
As for the 2022 version of Illustrator, Please go to Edit -> Preferences -> File Handling. You'll find the same screen as Ashutosh mentioned, and you'll be able to change your update links to manually mode over there.
