This used to be the most stable app out there. Now I find that AI crashes about 2-3 times a day, especially if I am working on a complex illustration. Editing points can be unstable… text boxes become corrupted and need to be re-built, I KNOW that editing a pre-existing filter involving glows crashes it 1/5 times. So much so that I have an automatic knee-jerk impusle to hit save before doing some things.
I send crash reports on these often and nothing ever changes.
I just lost another 1.5 of work and it isn’t just the time… I just don’t want to do that work again.
It is depressing and I am losing my love for an application that I once 100% loved. I fear too much old code and too many needless features have been added to make the application unstable.
I am not sure what to do but rant. I have to move over to CC and perhaps that will be a better build? Not sure… this has only gotten worse over one version to the next.
Illustrator runs for me about as stable as any version, but sympathize with your pain. Hate to bring bad news for you, but it appears the CC version has had lots of posts here on the forums, especially with getting the software running the first time and registration completed.
I crash or freeze up possibly 1-2 times a month, so hope you can get yours running to that point. Some things that may help you:
