Adobe Illustrator did not save and included my link files. Those files were not embedded.
Usually, to prevents lost files, I will save and checked the "include link files". However, now this feature isnt working. I tried several times but the files in my Ai hasnt been embedded. It is very annoying because I will need to embed all the files manually. Please FIX this

I have the same problem and had always had it. I am running the latest AI version (CC 2019) and a print files with just 12 pages on artboards and some 30 linked images are not showing after Illustrator preview crashed. It just shows a grey area at some point as if you've zoomed out big time and pops a message. Then I click on my other file tab to check if it is just a problem with the specific file and it's not. The same thing happens and the preview mode is irreversibly switched to Outline mode.
For the wasted time that the Illustrator, being ran on a Mac, I want a compensation for me and my teammates. 8 passes to your next official conference and a free subscription for 2019.
