For the last 2 hours Illustrator keeps crashing on saving locally.
Things I have tried:
* restating computer
*saving blank page
* un installing and re installing illustrator
* installing earlier version of illustrator
All to no avail...... any ideas people.... dont know what else I can do?
Where do you save your files?
Is a printer installed, set up as default printer and turned on? If not: install a PDF printer.
The printer thing worked. Bit weird as always had printer installed and never had a problem before. Just suddenly, half way through yesterday the problem started. Having read some of your replys to others with similar issues I tried setting a defualt printer and it seems to have worked.
Bit of an odd glitch but hay, I can save again... woohoo
Glad to see that it helped. Thank you for your feedback!
I didn't have this problem before until today. What a software has to do with printer? PS does have many hiccups along the way. Use a different program to finish your work instead of wasting hours looking for solution.
Illustrator saves printer information into the file.
When it cannot find a printer, it crashes.
You're right. I could see the printer when I clicked print in a web page and Phototshop. But in Illustrator > print, I got the spinning circle and it quit. How do I set the printer for illustrator in Mac?
You need to set it up in the system as the default printer.
After system updates sometimes the printer gets lost. Or the driver doesn't work anymore.
