I can't create a new file. When i click on create new, nothing happens. Also clicking on a template doesn't open a new file. There are no templates on "create new..." Doesn't work with the checkbox "Use legacy File New interface" either. I have tried to clear preferences, also reinstalled using adobe cleaner tool. Please help!

Illustrato version: 25.0.1 64 bit

Windows 10

Intel Core i7-9750H

32GB RAM

GeForce RTX 2060

Hi there,

 

Sorry to hear about this. Please try resetting the preferences manually of the app. You may follow instructions given below to do that:

  • Close all Adobe applications. 
  • Go to Location C:\Users\user\AppData\Roaming\Adobe 
  • Rename  Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Illustrator 25 Settings folders to Adobe Illustrator.old and Adobe Illustrator 25 Settings.old 
  • Launch Illustrator from the Creative Cloud. 

 

**Please note that resetting preferences will remove all the custom settings and Illustrator will launch with default settings. This way all your old settings will be saved in .old folders and Illustrator will recreate new folders with default settings.

 

If it does not help, try creating a new user account & let us know if the app is performing as expected there.

Hope it helps.

 

Regards,

Ashutosh
