Closing while saving dialogue box has a grammatical error.
The close-while-saving dialogue box says "Close anyways" as an option which bugs me because it should read as "anyway" not "anyways." The latter is grammatically incorrect. Not to mention that "getting saved" is also wrong and should be "being saved"
We have the fix available in the latest release, where we have redesigned this dialog. Please update Illustrator using Adobe Creative Cloud application to the latest build for version Illustrator CC 24.0.1
Please refer to our knowledge base FAQ – https://illustrator.uservoice.com/knowledgebase/articles/1844590 if you face difficulty in update.

Besides the poor English ("getting"), the behavior of this dialog is nonsensical. It should behave like InDesign's does, allowing you to cancel closing if you want to continue working while the action goes on in the background, or --without additional input -- continue waiting for the dialog and file to close automatically. With Illustrator's setup, I have to click yes to confirm the closing action I just initiated. So closing the file now takes _two_ steps_ to complete.

Just got this one. Should read "being" saved, not "getting" saved.
I have the latest release, and there are still grammatical errors.
The first one is very wordy and hard to understand. Pick up the language from your friends on the Photoshop team.
The second one is comical. It should say "being" not "getting".
Looking forward to 24.0.2. I suggest someone who is a professional proofreader read all the dialog boxes. I am available for hire!!
More than anything, its an extra button to click... I used to be able to use the save and close shortcuts in quick succession, knowing that it would close once saved, for example when saving a vector smart object from Photoshop. Then rather than returning straight to Photoshop, I have to click the button before it will continue to save then close... it would be great to just get rid of the dialog box altogether...
Here's one from Illustrator. I think someone with a better command of English should write these dialog boxes. I get the gist of what it's saying, but it's a little wordy. Plus, it's missing a comma.
So glad I'm not the only dork. Thought it was a spam pop-up or something.
Yes, please get rid of this – it makes my skin crawl every time I see it. Good English please: ditch the slang.
Additionally, it's not entirely clear what "close anyways" means in the first place. I read it quickly the first time and clicked it thinking it was going to allow me to work on another doc while it finished saving in the background. I had no idea it meant it would would STOP SAVING. Lost my work. "Close without saving" would be more accurate.

Close "anyways"? Really?... "Anyways" is slang... come on guys... I adore illustrator but if you can't catch something like this what else are you missing? And "getting saved"?.....

Change 'Getting saved' to Being saved' as well.
Agree! This bugs me every time I see it appear in my work flow. It sounds like a 12-year-old is speaking to me. Too colloquial and casual slang for a dialogue box in professional software. Please change it Adobe.

does this message HAVE to appear each time?
can we default it to (close after saving)
I just think it looks like somebody in the midwest has been and cheekily edited the dialogue boxes on the day they were released from service.
Please can you fix these. They do make me cringe a bit.

Skip 'anyways' - use 'anyway'.
"Getting saved" cracks me up every time. I don't know whether to click OK or say "Hallelujah."

I just saw this! Totally incorrect grammar...please fix this!
Dang, you beat me to it. It gave me quite a chuckle that a big company like Adobe could miss that.
