When Daylight Savings did its change this spring I started having problems saving files in Illustrator. I will go to save files, mainly .eps format, and it crashes Illustrator. I have changed my time zone to a zone that has not switched yet due to Daylight savings, and it works. Unfortunately as I find a new time zone, it also ends up hitting Daylight Savings, and I am back to square one. I have been searching both the Adobe site and the Windows site to find an answer to my problem, but am having no luck.
My proper time zone is
(UTC-07:00) Mountain Time (US & Canada)
I have even tried using Saskatchewan as they do not follow Daylight Savings, but it also creates crashes. I have tried many other time zones, the two that have worked so far are
(UTC-06:00) Guadalajara, Mexico City, Monterrey (worked for a little while but a time change a few weeks later messed it up)
(UTC) Casablanca (working on this time zone now, but an alert on my computer says time change coming up on the 28th)
Does anyone know if there is a fix to this problem? I feel like I am running out of time, as I am not sure how many more time zones will work.
that's the weirdest thing I've heard...in the mean time, you can uncheck the setting "Automatically adjust clock for daylight saving time", if you found a time zone that works, at least the clock won't auto update. Try it to see if it helps.
I have unchecked it, I sure hope it helps. I guess I will know next Monday. And it is the weirdest thing I have come across as well, stumbling across this solution was both frustrating and suprising.
I have finally found the solution!!! My account is set up as an Administrator, yet for some reason Illustrator was not opening with Adminsitrator permissions. I have to go into my startup menu, right click on Illustrator, and open as an administrator. Suddenly, everything works faster, smoother, and properly! I don't understand the reason behind this, but at least it is working proper now.
