I'm fairly new to Adobe CS and I've been running into a few issues. I've used it fairly consistently at work, but I want to branch out and do some graphic design on my own, so I bought a student license and set about teaching myself! Anyway, I got a Wacom Intuos5 medium tablet to go with this and I think it's causing a few issues. First, it seems like it's causing Illustrator CS6 to crash on launch. If I open an Illustrator document (I'm running Win7 64bit with 16gb of RAM), I get a message that Illustrator CS6 has stopped working. I close that pop-up and try to open the same document again and it opens just fine. I read in a release note that this is due to a plugin associated with Inkling, but I don't have that installed, so I'm not sure that this is what I'm experiencing. I've uninstalled the tablet and went about launching Illustrator again and it seems to working just fine. Is there a fix for this?
Second, I was just getting familiar with the brush tool the other day and noticed that when I used the tablet, the brush tool just quits drawing after about 7 seconds. So I made the same scribbles (just making figure eights over and over again) with my mouse and it seems to cut out after about 15 seconds this time. Is there something I might be doing wrong or this normal? Has anyone else experienced this?
Also, I'm running two SSDs and a 1TB HDD. I have WIN7 and other small things on one SSD and CS6 currently installed on the other SSD. Could this be an issue? I'm at work right now, but I plan on uninstalling both the table and CS6 and only installing CS6 onto my WIN7 SSD to see if this clears anything up.
Thanks for any suggestions ahead of time!
