Hey

 

First off I have a macbrook pro 16inch 2019 model, 2.3ghz Intel i9 with 32GB memory

 

I am running Big Sur and illustrator 2022 and everythign updated.

 

I use illustatror for creating large vector repeat patterns, the more complicated or larger files the slower it gets, and then sometimes it will hang and become "unresponsive " and yet a reset, or mac restart and it works again for a while and then stops.

 

I have tried alot of things, but something is causing a problem and I can't find it.

any helpers ?
many thanks in advance
Dan

Hi there,

 

Sorry to hear about your experience. Do you see this behavior while working on a specific file or all? Do you work on files saved on a network location or local drive?

I'd request you to try the suggestions on this community post & let us know if it helps to improve the performance of the app.

 

Regards,

Ashutosh

It happens when I am making a rather complicated pattern repeat, the colour circle spins forever.

opening and closing the file, saving etc and then illustatror will hang.

I wouldn't say my vector is too much for it to handle, shapes and colours, textures etc nothing too big and scale wise I am drawing on an A3 artboard.

 

it seems to be more of  problem since the update and since I moved to a MBP, which was built with extra memory etc

 

I don't think this file is corrupt as I can create a new design and if it gets too big or complex the same will happen.

 

what do i do?
