Editing Adobe PDF Presets crashes Illustrator
When trying to edit a Adobe PDF Preset in Illustrator it crashes on hitting OK to save. I have tried deleting all preferences and uninstalling and reinstalling Illustrator but no luck. For most things this would not be an issue since I can overwrite most setting by saving it in InDesign and overwriting with the same name (Why can't we do this in Illustrator?) This is happening on Illustrator version 26.0.3 on Mac OS 12.0.1 Intel iMac. I have added a quick screen grab. It doesn't matter what I try to edit.

Happenning to me too, current version of illustrator. Very frustrating.
Six months after this bug was reported, I'm experiencing this, too. Latest version of Illustrator on the latest official version of macOS on a brand-new M1 Max Mac Studio. You don't even need a file to be open, nor do you need to have *made any changes* to the PDF profile. You simply have to click the pencil (edit) icon and then click "OK". Instantly crashes.

Same issue here- lost so much work as AI rarely crashes these days...
Same issue here!

Thank you for report.
I have the same issue in Illustrator, it crashes when I try to save Adobe PDF Preset setting ("Edit" menu).
Illustrator version 26.2.1 on Mac OS 12.3.1 Intel iMac.
