Save now takes longer in updated 2020 version
When I save, even a blank document, it takes Illustrator a lot longer than the previous version to save.
We hope this season ends on a joyful note and continues into a safe and prosperous New Year for you and your family.
Merry Christmas & Happy New Year 2020.
We have tried to address this issue in our beta build of 24.0.2.
Please visit adobe.ly/1o2SDsg and get the latest build for version 24.0.2 (Build 1).
Please do let us know if this issue is resolved for you or not.
With Best Regards,
Same here. I used to be able to save files and it was instant. Now it takes a noticeable length of time. I notice this most often when I press save (as an illustrator file) and then immediately want to save the same file as a PDF. I get a popup that tells me I can do this when it stops saving and asks me if that is ok. I never would have to wait in the past. It doesn't matter how big the file is.
After updating to the newest version, the saving is pretty slow (3 seconds vs. the previous almost instant saving). What is up with that?

It takes 10-15 seconds to save a 5mb file. Very slow.

Don´t understand why you need the file packed ? It happens on all files. The slowness I mean.
And we have illustrator both on Windows maschines and Macs. Same problem on all.
And las but not least it doesn't matter if we save it on the networks file server or as a local file o the computer.

I also have the same issue. Takes forever to save an even empty artboard. And sometimes when you open a file the entire Illustrator becomes gray and all the menus and widows disappear I have to move the window or minimize to se the artwork..... I have tried to install the Prerelease 24.01 but the same problem still remains.
I have a MacBook Pro 15 inch, 6 core i9, 32 GB and Mac OS Catalina 10.15.1
UPDATE: Now I'm getting another error: "Illustrator tried, but could not save the file "FileName". Click "Learn More" to try alternate options for saving your file."
If I click "OK" and then command-s again, it saves the file, but leaves a .tmp file in the folder with the job. Clicking "Learn More" takes me to https://helpx.adobe.com/illustrator/kb/troubleshoot-file-save-issues.html, which is of no help at all.
This is happening almost every time I save a file.
I am having the same issue. I get a pop-up DLOG when I save or save as and then try to do something else, like close the file. I have to wait for it to finish saving before I can continue. It takes a LOT longer since I downloaded the new version. Here's a 319k file following the instructions you shared above.
