Help! I just updated to Illustrator 2020 (24.0) and now I get the below message whenever I try to save an Illustrator file I'm working on...

"This file has been modified outside Illustrator. Do you want to continue?"

I've searched the forums and found this mentioned, but only in old posts. It seems to be attributed to updating to Mac OS 10.13, but I am not using a Mac. I am using Windows 10 and the only thing I've done recently is update Illustrator to the newest version 24.0.

Windows 10, 64 bit.

I am saving to a server. I have not tested it to see if saving locally eliminates the problem.

Most probably saving locally eliminates this problem.

I am getting this issue again. I hear it may have to do with an Esko Plugin. Anyone else having this issue and have an Esko plugin or any type of plugin installed in Illustrator?

So when you uninstall the plugin the issue is gone?

 

What does ESKO say?
