Illustrator CC 2018 (Mac) Crashes Affects ALL CC Programs
illustrator CC2018 crashes about every third or fourth time I "Save AS" an EPS. Freezes immediately AND freezes any open CC programs. Have to Force Quit all to restart each. This is getting old, fast.

Illustrator cc 2018 on Mac Os High Sierra crashes on saving attempts in every format, AI included. No way out so far, restored preferences, disabled GPU, uninstalled other softwares told to be a problem (e.g. TeamViewer). Nothing to do.
Interestingly, it does appear to actually generate the file because after rebooting, the EPS in question is in my folder. But the entire process gums up the works completely.
Also, so far these are all pieces of a single project so they are all of a type, images that have vectors, type and bitmap elements that have clipping masks.
It has happened so far just when saving EPS files through both "Save AS" and "Save a Copy"

Is this happening only on saving as eps file or with any file format.
Also, after Force Quitting, unable to relaunch programs without complete hard reboot. Restart command does not work.
