Illustrator seems to be taking up a lot of disk space, this isn't a problem while I'm using the program as that's to be expected. However the disk space doesn't seem to get reallocated after I quit Illustrator, only if I restart.
It's as much as 7GB of disk space. (Photoshop seems to reallocated it after I quit.)
Thanks for any info, Bill
What exactly do you mean? What do you do when you work? AI gobbling up huge amounts of swap space would indicate dealing with pixel data or very complex artwork... Do you let it flush the clipboard when exiting the program or retain the data?
The projects I've been working on have had a lot of linked bitmaps, so that could be the case. I don't really copy any of them to the clipboard though.
It also seems to take Illustrator a while to quit, I don't get a prompt asking me to retain the clipboard data.
Is there a way to purge the scratch disks manually if Illustrator doesn't, clear the /tmp folder?
