Memory Issue in Illustrator

With the latest Illustrator update, CC 2019, I have been having a lot of error messages pop up in regards to memory.

I've received the following various error messages:

  • The operation cannot complete because there isn't enough memory (RAM) available.
  • Not enough memory to open the illustration

Every time, the files I am trying to open are small.  Once I receive an error message, I will continue to get it with any file until I restart the program.  Then it is fine.

I am on a Mac Pro running macOS High Sierra 10.13.6 and my RAM is no where near being full.  Any ideas?

This has apparently been solved and released as a prerelease build. You need to sign up for prerelease to download it for now:
