MacOS Monterey 12.3
M1 MacBook Pro
Hello there, hope that somebody can help me out.
For some reason Illustrator has stopped letting me save new files to my hard drive. It will only let me save to Creative Cloud.
I can only Force Quit out the application once the ‘Save’ dialogue box has appeared.
I’ve noticed that people have had similar problems before. However, their message posts mention that they don’t see anymore the actual ‘Save’ dialogue box.
I’ve looked into saving permissions on my Mac plus uninstalled and reinstalled the application a few times.
If anybody has some suggestions I’d be very grateful because right now Illustrator is unusable.
Since I've seen quite a lot of posts about this OS and the current Illustrator version, I'd try installing the previous version from the CC app (26.0.3)
Thanks for your reply. I've reverted back to a few different versions to test this solution and unfortunately the error still is occurring.
As you can see in the photo, the Save button is inactive.
Did this problem coincide with the Mac OS update in that case?
I think so. It's annoying that it isn't easy to revert back to the previous MacOS 12.2 version.
Same issue, same versions, different mac, same frustration with greyed out Save As and Save a Copy. Tried everything mentioned in this thread and same results ... can't use Illustrator today.

We are sorry for the trouble. We have logged a bug with the Product team, and they have started investigating the issue.
It seems the issue started right after the release of the macOS Monterey v12.3, as it is happening with the new & older version of Illustrator.
I would request you to please upvote this UserVoice (https://illustrator.uservoice.com/forums/601447-illustrator-desktop-bugs/suggestions/44917468-can-t-... if not done already. By doing this, you will keep getting updates on the issue.
Also, we checked on multiple Mac machines running macOS Monterey v12.3 and were unable to replicate the issue.
We checked with multiple users on a remote session, and installing an older version also didn't help.
One user reached out to us, and uninstalling the whole creative cloud resolved the issue for him. However, it is not an ideal or recommended resolution.
I would request you to please share a few details it would really help us investigate the issue:
We will be looking forward to your response.
We are glad to inform you that the save button greyed out/ unclickable issue has been addressed. We worked with Apple and addressed this issue with the latest macOS update, v12.3.1, released last week. I would request you to update and let us know if the issue still persists.
