On my otherwise stable MacBook Pro Illustrator has become very sluggish. I'm working with relativey basic files (simple technical illustrations) that I've been using for quite a while. The files are local, not in the cloud or on a network. All of a sudden every simple operation (drag an object, nudge with the keyboard, select a different tool) results in the dreaded beach ball for several seconds. Today AI locked my machine up solid, requiring a hard reboot. That has never happened until now.
I realize I'm probably leaving out some info that may be handy, but it really is a simple issue. My workflow is shot now, I'm way less productive now. I intend to do more research on my own but wondered if anyone else had similar issues with the latest update.
Just wondering if anyone else is in the same boat. I estimate that I'm losing 2 hours a day to spinning beach balls and sluggish performance. I've tried every tip mentioned here and elsewhere. Now it's hitting me in the wallet, I wish there was an alternative other than Corel. I may take a look at Affinity. This is really a shame, come on Adobe!
