I have Illstrator 10 and have been using the same version for some time. I have a Windows 10 PC. All of a sudden I can't save my files to a PDF. When I try to save it it simply says can't save illustration. I have tried everything. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the program. I tried to paste it into a different file. Nothing works. Anyone out there know what's going on and how to fix it?

Hi there,

 

Thanks for reaching out. As mentioned earlier, Adobe Illustrator v10 was never tested on Windows 10. I'd recommend upgrading to the latest version of Adobe Illustrator(https://www.adobe.com/in/products/illustrator.html) for better performance and stability.

 

Regards,

Ashutosh

Illustrator 10 is in no way compatible with your system anymore. Looks like some Windows update ruined it for you.

Maybe it's got something to do with a printer, because this gets regularly reset with Windows updates. You could check your printer settings nd reassign your printer.

I don't have any problem using any other part of the program it just won't save a file as a PDF.

It's such a pain that you can't actually buy the software anymore you have to have a subscription I don't use it that much to warrant paying for it as a monthly subscription.

Illustrator 10 is a great application when using it on an appropriate operating system.

 

But Illustrator 10 is about 20 years old. Using it on the latest version of OS Windows 10 is a pure adventure that somehow must fail sooner or later. Wonder how you even could manage to install it there at all.

AngryFreebird,

 

Can you Print to an application that creates PDFs, such as (a good old) Acrobat (Distiller) or some kind of PDF writer?

I don't have distiller or anything where I can print a PDF directly I do have an image port printer that I can print from Illustrator but I'm not crazy about the resolution of it. I like to use my Illustrator files for graphic design like my business cards and brochures and stuff. It's just easier to save it as a PDF with the type turned to paths. I used to be able to save PDFs from Illustrator and I just can't do it anymore.

AngryFreebird,

 

Lacking a non Reader Acrobat version, there are free PDF writers out there,
