This issue is fixed in macOS 12.3.1 update from Apple.
Saving always creates a .tmp file, can't see preview of the file and cannot import AI file to After Effects
as title says, my Illustrator 2020 (24.0.1) always creates a .tmp file whenever i save. I cant see a preview of the file when viewed on Finder. Lastly, I can't import the files i created using AI 2020 to After Effects - it only shows a blank artboard.
Files are saved with Create PDF compatible File ticked.
I have also tried resetting the Adobe PDF joboption settings.
So right now I have 2 AI's installed just so i can continue working with my files.

I am using Illustrator 2020 on a Windows 10 computer.
We import CAD files in DXF format to create AI files for our graphics department to use. We are successful when importing ACAD2000 DXF files, but have problems with more recent versions. Elements drop off when importing ACAD2004, 2007, 2010 DXF files. When trying to import ACAD2013 and 2018 CAD files I get the message "Unknown Format and Cannot Be Opened".20 votes

Images from artboards containing embedded raster files output using Export for Screens are of decidedly lower quality than those output from Save for Web. Please see the attached image for a side-by-side comparison. Save for Web is on the left, Explort for Screens on the right. Top images are actual size, bottom enlarged for emphasis. Notice the jaggies in the raster images.20 votesResolved (Comments Open) · AdminRama (Mgr, Software Quality Engineering, Adobe Illustrator) responded
The difference in image quality between Save for Web and Export for Screens is due to different DPI used. Save for Web uses 96 DPI as default, Export for Screen 1x scale uses 72 DPI. Changing the option from 1x to 96 DPI should match the quality of Image exported Save for Web
I created action that use the "save as" to defined location, when closing and restarting Illustrator the action doesn't save location of "save as" action.

Hello, I am experiencing strange results during artboard export - after export to bitmap file, there is often some part of graphics missing. Latest example is this - the 1pt stroke, visible in editor, is not present on exported image. Simillar result achieved in numerous different cases, ussually some shapes or contours with white color are missing in exported image. I am includign source files, you will have the background photo link missing, but this can be replaced with any colored box with same result. This is dangerous bug, because you have to control your exports carefully, and is easy to miss some part of your layout in final data (like small logo on banners made for client last week :) )

The white outlines in the file have Overprint attribute set. White + overprint result in empty objects, please remove overprint attribute from the white objects and try export again.
I have been working in a new file I created, and I am unable to save the file. I have tried exporting, and quitting such that illustrator asks if I want to save. Nothing happens. I am stuck here, as I will otherwise loose the work I have done. Any suggestions???3 votes
The problem got solved by resaving the original document and no longer can be reproduced.

I recently updated my OS to High Sierra V. 10.13.3 and have Illustrator CC18 22.0.1. I work on a server and at first, every time I tried to resave a file for the second time it would crash. Now all of a sudden I am able to save once and when I try to save the second time it says it can't and I have to save the file with a new name. It also keeps making .tmp files. If I work off of my server on my desktop this does not happen.3 votes

I saved an illustrator file then closed the program. After some days, I reopened the program. I could see the preview thumbnail showing my latest edit but when I clicked on it to open, it went back to a much earlier version of the file. This has now happened twice. Please help if you have solved this successfully.

It turns out the folder is managed by Google Drive, and it restored a previous version for some reason.
If you had problems like this too — please comment.
I'm trying to export some vector files from AI, which I've done countless times before and had no problems...
Right now when I save the file as AI and EPS, it shows up in my saved folder as a blank file. When I open the properties from it's saved folder it still shows as AI, however I'm not able to open it with AI or any other applications.
I'm stumped and don't know what I can do next.1 voteResolved (Comments Open) · 4 comments · File Save, Import and Export · Flag idea as inappropriate… · Admin →
my png transparent images are showing up as total black images after export . They show fine for a few seconds and in the viewer window but the png it self is totally black. Works sometimes and others not I would say 2 out of 25 show up black.1 vote
The case was solved by reinstalling the app.
If the same thing happens to you — please share details below in comments.
I create an object (rectangle) in the AI with a dashed line (8px / 8px). Contour 2px and grey filling.
If I save this object as *.svg and then open the saved SVG again, the path of the rectangle is fragmented.
This denomination always occurs just before the corners. In other words, a rectangle is divided into 4 paths and becomes a group...

Sorry for a late answer. Basically it happens because of 'Align dashes to corners' option that is turned on for the object in Stroke panel. When it's on, Illustrator internally treats this stoke exactly like you have in the SVG — a group of normal dashed lines with recalculated gaps and dashes, and custom inserts where it's required.
SVG just can't handles this, so to preserve the look it applies this treatment, converting it from the 'live' to 'expanded'.
Try to disable the option and comment back if it helps.
Using the newest version of Illustrator won't let me use new files for older illustrator versions (ex: illustrator at school)
Opening Illustrator files created last night on the newer version on my home computer won't load at school on an older version of Illustrator. The files are completely missing artwork. You can see all the components on the recently opened page, but when you open the file. The artwork doesn't load.1 vote
We have bumped up the file format in AI 2020 so any file created in AI 2020 is not compatible in older versions. Please do a save as Illustrator CC version before sharing the file.
The older release should also be warning users that the file was created in a new version and will have some data loss.
When I export the attached .ai file to svg, the result does not contain the id of the r14 rectangle.
Before you say "well just add it in manually", please consider that this is a simplified version and that the real thing would contain dozens, even hundreds of objects.
Thanks a lot Francis for filing the issue. Please feel free to open a new issue if you should experience the issue again or another one.
"Preview in Browser" option in save for web window is resets to Safari everyday(After restart). Several times I tried selecting Google Chrome and set as default in browser menu, but chrome is getting removed from the browser menu automatically after I restart the Illustrator.1 vote
Please contact Apple support. macOS controls the default browser setting. You can validate the default browser by double clicking any html file on your system.
