Hello, I have a problem. Whenever I finish a work and start the process of saving and exporting in ai format, the program shows a notification that there is a problem in Illustrator and it must be closed. It does not save the work for me completely and does not issue it either.

I had a similar issue and forgot that I had a bottom most layer, a giant single square of one color that was maximum size possible, beyond the art board. This would cause error messages when saving or trying to export. You could try deleting layers one by one and see if you have a problem layer.

Hello @Wafa2559254327op,

 

Sorry to hear about this experience. As pointed out by Mylenium, we will need more info about this to investigate further. Would you mind sharing a few more details like:

  • The exact version of the OS and Illustrator
  • Are you experiencing this problem with other files as well?
  • Where are you saving the file to? If it's on an external drive/network storage/cloud-synced folder, kindly try saving directly to your internal hard drive and check if it helps.

 

Also, try resetting Illustrator's preferences by following the steps shared in this article (https://helpx.adobe.com/illustrator/kb/troubleshoot-preference-issues.html) and sharing your observations.
Disclaimer: Please note that resetting preferences will remove all custom settings, and Illustrator will launch with the defaults. You may take a backup of these settings from the location mentioned in the article.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

 

Thanks,
Anubhav

Hello @Wafa2559254327op,

 

Thanks for getting back, and sorry for the late response. I would request you try running Illustrator under a different administrator account and check if it helps.

 

Also, try reinstalling the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable and updating the GPU drivers, and share your observations.

 

Looking forward to your response.

 

Regards.

Did you just update?

If so you could try this:-

If  that doesn't work step back to previous version 'til they get it sorted.
