I keep having numerous instances of illustrator creating a duplicate PDF file of my document. It will always be formatted like this: ai165349314763File Name Here.pdf. This happens even if I open an AI file for only a couple of minutes, without making any changes or having to save. And I am working on a file with an AI extension, not a PDF extension. It doesn't behave like a temp file in that it goes away when I close the document. It is a permanent file that I have to manually delete. It's almost like it's creating a physical copy of a Recovery save. Can someone please tell me how to turn this off so I don't have to throw unnessary file away 10X per day?
I'm using AI 26.3.1 on Monterey. This only happens with Illustrator.
