ID: -108 is the message I get when the error pops up, that Illustrator does not have enough memory to complete the task. 

 

What I am doing is creating an offset path on an object so that I can create a die cut for a sticker. After creating the offset path, I then need to merge in pathfinder (unite). While it's merging, it takes sooooo long - like minutes long. Then, after so much time, I get the error.

 

PLEASE HELP!!! 

 

I have already: 

updated the OS

updated AI

Returned AI to default setting

 

What else can I try?

Hi there,

 

Sorry to hear about your experience. Would you mind sharing version of the OS & Illustrator? Did it happen with a specific file?

I'd also request updating Adobe Illustrator to the latest version(v25.0.1) & see if it helps. Let us know how it goes.

 

Regards,

Ashutosh
