    All,

    I bought my M1 chip MacBook Pro the last week of November, 2020 and was devastated that it and Adobe Illustrator 2021 did not work together at all. I was getting a pink crash screen that froze my entire computer making it so that I had to do a hard restart--meaning, I didn't even have a crash data report generated to send to Apple or Adobe.

    After submitting my "PLEASE FIX; I NEED TO MAKE VECTOR LOGOS FOR CLIENTS FOR MY BUSINESS!" pleas into the Adobe ether, one of the subsequent follow-up messages gave me this workaround, and the program has worked for me for the past month and I am grateful to be back in business:
