Really? How did you measure the free RAM? Is it possible you actually have 50GB free disk space instead?

I know I have 50GB free RAM because that’s what Activity Monitor indicates... I’m only running llustrator and have a few PDFs open in Preview on a 16” MBP with 64GB RAM.

Thanks for verifying. What's your exact version of Illustrator (not "latest" please), and how much RAM does activity monitor show for Illustrator at this time?

Thank you for your reply.

I'm running Illustrator v 24.3

Activity monitor indicates Illustrator takes 1.07 GB RAM, which "spikes" to 1.13 GB RAM when I try deleting objects and get the error.

Hi there,

 

Sorry to hear about your experience. Did you try restarting the machine once?

Please try disabling the GPU Performance under Preferences > Performance and see if it helps.

Let us know how it goes.

 

Regards,

Ashutosh

Thank you for your reply. I tried both these strategies and still get the error.

I even tried resetting my Illustrator preferences & restarting. Same error. Which I now regret because I loved my preferences 😞
