Since the Illustrator update 6 days ago, I am unable to save ai files. I get a message box:
Illustrator tried, but could not save the file "File Name". Click "Learn More" to try alternate options for saving your file.
Once I click on Learn More I am taken to: https://helpx.adobe.com/au/illustrator/kb/troubleshoot-file-save-issues.html
I've restarted my computer, which has helped with previous issues however, it has not helped. I can save files to pdf format & export to jpg. Using Mac OS Monterey 12.3.
Any help is appreciated!
Try to turn OFF Preferences > File Handling > Save in Background.
Thanks so much @Ton Frederiks that did the trick. Much appreciated!
Good to hear that helped.
We are sorry for the trouble. This issue has been fixed in the latest Illustrator update, v26.2.1, released yesterday. I would request you to turn on the "Save in background" setting after updating Illustrator and let us know how it goes.
