Illustrator 22.1 hangs on start; reinstall only fix I can find
I have a late 2013 Mac Pro, running OS 10.13.5. This problem started about 2 months ago for no apparent reason. When I'm done with Illustrator for the day, I'll quit the application. It may be a couple of days before I have to re-enter illustrator. Most of the time this works, but now, randomly, upon clicking on the application on the launch bar, the splash screen comes up and then the app appears to load, but no start window appears. The illustrator menu bar is there, but is grayed out and you can mouse over the menu bar options which will even drop down when clicked but they are all grayed out as well. The only way I can quit the program is to force quit. I've tried restarting to see if that will fix the issue, with no success. The only thing that fixes it is uninstalling from the creative cloud menu, and then reinstalling. I've had to do this 5 times in the last 2 months and its getting really frustrating. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
