Hello all. I have been using the pen tool for my project with no issues, but once I select the curvature tool my computer fails. I am able to draw one point with the tool (with lots of buffering on my computer), but once I attempt to make a second point, my whole entire screen goes black except for a small portion of the screen. My mouse remains the pen tool and I can move it around after ~15 seconds of buffering and my screen disappearing. Then, once I move my mouse around the screen glitches between black and white. The glitching stops once I move my mouse. There is no way to seemingly exit the screen, as my entire toolbar and dashboard have disappeared; so, I am forced to manually shut down my computer and relaunch the entire thing. Illustrator is completely up to date. What can I do to avoid this happening?
