They aren't going to compensate you. Just roll back to v22. They are on it. I've been talking to the team. But it's apparently a terrible bug they completely overlooked. I don't know why or how, but it is what it is. Just roll your version back to v22 and you're good to go until they fix v23.
I couldn't take it anymore. I finally rolled back to v22. Just gonna hang tight until they fix this.
Anon, read the comments. I've been directly working with the Adobe team working on this. Sending them information and having screen sharing sessions for them to get to the bottom of it. They have posted, but it's not always clear when you first visit the page.
Got in touch with Raghuveer Singh, and he and the Adobe bug team are on it. I gave him a test file, along with display and system details so they can get further to the bottom of the issue.
I don't know how they let a bug like this pass through. The stranger thing is my co-workers aren't experiencing the bug. Only my machine is dealing with it, and we're a team of 8 designers. One of my co-workers claimed they experienced the bug, but after updating to Mojave, it went away. Not for me! Anyway, hoping they fix this sometime this week. Might be longer, though.
Ashutosh, as requested, I spent some time operating Illustrator with my WiFi / Internet turned off, and the error still occurred. I think it took about 30 minutes to occur. It's difficult to predict.
Newcomers, Adobe has emailed me. They are working on fixing this. Just commenting to all the new commenters that have voiced their concerns as well. Looking forward to the coming fix.
Hey everyone. I just received this message late last night (PST) from Anish Kumar from Adobe:
"Thanks everyone for the response and your willingness to help. We are able to reproduce the issue inhouse and are working on it.
I will get in touch with you in case we need any help from your side.
So we will be getting a fix soon. For now, I'm just going to hang tight and keep rapidly saving, quitting, and re-opening Illustrator to work around the issue.
You know Adobe won't refund money. However, I'm sure they're working on it. Issue is still occurring for me. Still waiting for an update.
Da Aldana, we don't know yet. Adobe devs are (I assume) trying to address the issue. I'm still dealing with it as well.
Thanks, Henrik. I'm also in communication with Anish Kumar and Ashutosh Gupta about it. Hopefully we can get this resolved and get Illustrator working tip-top sooner than later. Otherwise, I just have to work with quitting, and re-opening files in 10-15 minute increments before it crashes again.
Updated to Mojave. Still getting the error.Kyle supported this idea ·
This issue also may have something to do with server access. When I'm connected to my work server, the issue persisted. After I disconnected, I haven't had the error occur even once. I'm wondering if Illustrator is looking at network access for something.
Just now, however, the same error occurred. I can only say that it took much longer for the error to occur this go-around. Still persists, though.
Thanks, Anon. I'm not settling yet, we'll see if it fixes after installing Mojave. Thanks for letting me know it's still not working for you. I'll stay alert for the issue.
Apparently, this bug only occurs for High Sierra users. I didn't realize there was an OS update to Mojave. Fellow co-workers are telling me that error DOES NOT occur when using macOS Mojave. So I'm updating now.
I've sent an email to the team describing the issue.
It is not tied to a specific action. The error is recurring. I've managed to go over 40 minuted without the error, and then I'll go 5 minutes and it recurs two to three times in a row.
It is still crashing. Still making the same error. CPU reboot hasn't helped. I'll see if clearing the preferences cache or something fixes it.Kyle shared this idea ·
