I have a serious problem. For some reason to time I need Illustrator to be perfect and it fails on me ON EXAM WEEK.
I used it yesterday perfect for a good 3-4 hour session. I get on today and I notice that clicking on my groups and paths freezes it for around 5 seconds then works again. Isolation mode also takes a while to go in and then come out and when I minimize it it takes longer to open back up again (10 seconds).
That is also not the only problem
I'm trying to copy the appearance from one group to another by dragging the swatch in the appearance panel. When I apply it to an object that object turns invisble but I can still see the path it just has no fill or stroke
PLEASE I'm begging, I have a lot on the line this week for my graphic exam I NEED HELP
P.S Also did a clean install and used the clean up tool and its still happening
Okay. Here's the general way to fix illy probs.
Conflict with other program (I found web browsers particularly their extensions/plugins to be the culprit)
In your case I would guess a web browser extension cause it sounds similar to what had happened to me before. To test it quit your web browser and see if the problem dissapears. If it does disable all your extension and enable and test again. Then turn them on one by one until you find the culprit.
