After updating to 12.3, Illustrator gives me a Save dialog box with the save button grayed out. I have to hit escape to close the dialog box. This happens on any existing file I open as well as new files. I've uninstalled and reinstalled Illustrator, reset preferences, and unchecked "Save in Background" in preferences. Any help is greatly appreciated as this is currently making Illustrator unusable for me.
I have the exact same problem. Latest macOS 12 release, latest Illustrator version. iMac late 2015. I cannot work with Illustrator right now. Please fix this asap!

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 really sorry for the trouble. We are working with Apple to resolve the issue.

I hope it helps!

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.
