    Despite today's update 24.0.3 - this bug still exists!

    Had a file open, been tweaking it back and forth, went to save and... 'can't save due to unexpected errors'. Had to save it to my desktop instead.

    I can't use Adobe's "fix" of deleting all my PDF presets, I need those presets for my day to day job, they're my client's custom print specifications.

    I'm having the same issue, I've read somewhere that it's due to Adobe PDF Presets - do you have any custom presets set up? It's irritating that 2020 seems to have this bug, 2019 was fine with custom PDF presets

    I repeatedly get the error message "Illustrator is unable to save this document [FILE NAME] due to some unexpected errors."

    I have to save the file in a different location, then delete the old file, and move the new file to the old location. I have to do this nearly every time I save, and I've tried multiple different files.

    I did some research, and apparently this is due to Adobe PDF Presets. I have a custom preset set up (to match my local Printer's artwork requirements) that I have successfully been using for 2 years, through various CC updates, but since updated to 2020 this preset is possibly causing these issues.

    Having to delete PDF presets/not being able to use them would be very inconvenient for my work, that said this bug is also very inconvenient.

    Please fix it! Adobe customers shouldn’t have to abandon their PDF presets when they worked so well in previous CC versions.

    As far as I’m aware this problem only occurs in Adobe Illustrator 2020, Indesign (which has the same PDF preset) is unaffected.
