My illustrator keeps freezing whenever I try and save or copy/cut..

For the last few weeks everytime I'm working on a document in illustrator cs6 that includes paths, I go to save it and it freezes, I try and copy it and it freezes.

I've got an Intel Core Processor @ 2.00GHZ and 8.00GB RAM, I don't have any other program open at the same time so I don't know why this keeps happening.

Anyone got anyideas? suggestions?

    The copy and paste procdure may have some lgacy content also which is causing the issue.


    You can follow the steps in the knowledgebase document and try to delete the unwanted to content from the file.

    I've encountered files freezing for a while when I copy and when I paste. It annoys the hell out of me. But alt + dragging items works fine. Now, it may be different for each one of you, but here's what I did:


    1. Open a new document.


    2. Minimize the offending document's window so that you can see the empty, new document window.


    3. Select all (ctrl + a) the items from the offending document.


    4. Drag them to the new document.


    5. Close the offending file. Then save the new document to replace the offending file.
