Graphic Styles Panel Crashes Illustrator (macOS Movaje)
Illustrator CC 2019 on macOS Mojave becomes unusable after loading the "Graphic Styles" panel. After the panel loads, there's a brief beach ball followed by the "Not enough memory to process the appearance" error message. The menus then become "greyed out" and the only way to proceed is to force quit illustrator and restart.
On the surface I can avoid loading the "Graphic Styles" panel, but there are other panels that I need to load that only load with the "Graphic Styles" panel attached to them.
I've deleted the AI preferences and uninstalled/reinstalled Illustrator and the result is the same.

I have the same problem. Mojave all updated. Please fix because this is one expensive problem for me.
I'm getting the same error. Really annoying --- any chance this will be fixed soon? Seems like it just cropped up recently (in last month) out of nowhere. . . Any ideas how to fix so we can use Illustrator? I can't even use it. . .
Same problem, extremely frustrating as working with deadlines and need the graphic styles panel. Is no fix yet?
Same issue here. As soon the Graphics Style window is open. All the menu items are greyed out. Including 'Quit Illustrator'

I have the same issue. I use graphic styles on a daily basis at work and need to be able to use them on my home computer and its really frustrating that it doesn't work.
Does anyone know why this is happening?
Same here. Get the error below when simply opening a file that contains four graphics in the graphic styles panel. Menus grayed out with spinning beachball; ultimately ends with a force quit.
There is not enough memory available to process the appearance of an object.

I was able to open the problematic file with the same versions of Illustrator using my laptop without issue, so I removed the graphics in the graphic styles panel and saved the file. The file then opened fine on my iMac.

Same problem with CC 2019 and HighSierra.
All menu entries are grey. Only a hard break in dock can stop the program.
As a workaround: CMD-ALT-CRTL-SHIFT at Illustrator startup helps a while, but don't use the graphic styles!
