I just updated Illustrator on my CC and now I can open the application but no matter what I do I just get the spinning wheel. Opening a file, trying to set up a new file etc – nothing works. Has anyone else had the same issue? I've rebooted my mac several times, but hasn't helped.

I hope the problem is resolved by now. If not, kindly update Illustrator to version 26.3.1 and the macOS on your system to version 12.4 and check if it works then.

I tried removing/disabling duplicate fonts from the Fontbook but I just kept getting the spinning wheel and it crashed my mac every time. In the end I had to get external help to resolve the issue – they altered fonts elsewhere as I also use Font Explorer. So the issue is resolved – just frustrating!
