Was working just fine in AI 2020 at my dayjob, creating an .eps print file using copy-pasted art from an .ai file as usual... then today my new .eps work began "saving" as lots of .tmp files, and new .eps files which will not open. My old original .ai files that I'd been pulling from yesterday have now got all these funky clipping masks all over the place, in spite of me having used no clipping masks originally in that .ai artwork...no textures or even jpgs. It was all plain bog standard pen drawn vector shapes and live text. Now I cannot save or open any of my work! What should I do??
