File synchronization fails for ai files saved with CC 2018
I sync my files across several computers using Unison (an rsync command line tool). Since updating, .ai files will not synchronize. I am running macOS High Sierra 10.13.1 and CC 2018 v 22.0.0 on the computers that I am syncing.
Steps to reproduce:
1. make ai file. A4 RGB layout with one text item. Save.
2. run Unison.
3. synchronization fails with message that the ai file does not exist on the other computer because it could not be renamed from the tmp version of the ai file that unison pulls from the other computer.
Not sure if this is a High Sierra problem, a CC problem or both.
Illustrator currently doe snot support network drives or operations. However, the issue you describe seems to be operating system issue. Moving this as a feature request to support
Problem persists with ai files created with 22.0.1
I managed to find an ai file that was created with Illustrator CC 2017 and this fails in synchronization too so it is possibly a High Sierra problem. All other file types seem unaffected though - sync only fails for ai files.
