The latest update to Illustrator (and should have not had auto-update turned on) crashes constantly. This was not a problem with the last version or with my computer. Considering how many people are complaining about this, Adobe should fix the issue ASAP. My work depends on using this app.
I understand crashes are frustrating. There could be multiple reasons (hardware software, connection, etc.) why an app would crash. We have fixed a few issues in the v26.0.1 released recently. Please update Illustrator to this version and let us know how it goes.
