Illustrator CC (2018) will run out of memory and/or crash
Will sip every mb of your memory and won't let me zoom in after that, changes to CPU preview and will tell that there's no memory left and crash.
Happened to me several times in one day alone and with only 2 files open (light vector only). I have a 24Gb RAM workstation and it swallows 20GB in 1/2 hour.
Please get in touch with us at email@example.com or any of the other support channels – https://helpx.adobe.com/support.html . Please give a reference to this post so that we can identify you.
Since this is not a generic issue that we can reproduce at our end, we will need someone to look into your machine to figure out what is going on here.
Thanks & Regards,

I'm having the same problem, very simple file, and after 5 minutes, the memory Illustrator uses keeps getting higher til it reaches maximum, then my computer wants to explode ( and I have 16gb of RAM, i mean Illustrator should work just fine.)
This has happened for over a year now and I even had adobe access my machine to no avail! just happened again now. I don't think the engineers know how to fix this? lost so much time/money so far. please just figure it out and fix, please!

I to am having the same issues, very simple work im doing and just uses all my memory.
I have some cases where Illustrator CC 2018 v22.0.1 will Not force quit, Application does not seem to be running in Activity Monitor and when I check the dock icon and try to force quit there it states Not Responding.

Please tell me there is a fix for this. I am working on the simplest file imagineable with zero other programs open, and illustrator is crashing non stop. Just before that it tells me there is no Ram. Insane

Same here. After about 30 mins the app becomes unusable and the OS (High Sierra) needs to be restarted.

Having the same issue where no matter how simple the file, Illustrator maxes out RAM very quickly and causes Windows to force close applications to preserve performance.
