Since 2 days Illustrator CC (latest version, Macbook Pro M1) won't save on my computer anymore... I realy don't know what caused this. It still does save (and overwrite original) when I close the document, but save as, export, export for web etc don't work at all. If I use these commands, there is nothing happening, no dialog box at all?

No problems with Photoshop or Indesign.

 

HELP!

Did you update your Mac or Adobe apps two days ago?

Yes, I probably did. (It updates automatically, so I don't remember it for sure).

Reset prefs, if that doesn't work, uninstall, run the cleaner tool, reinstall, and if that doesn't work contact Adobe.

I found the problem: the second monitor!
This is a 'work a round': unplug your extra monitor...

Or change your main monitor in your system preferences. Then everything is back to normal (except that everything is on your wrong screen when you open it ;-)).

I hope Apple/Adobe find a quick fix for this bug!
