Do you by have Suitcas fusion installed on your computer?
If yes, disable it and then check
I do. I will disable and see if that resolves the freezing. Is there any way for Suitcase and Illustrator (or any Adobe CS) to play nice? I gave up on SF3 and not that we have SF4 I was hoping to utilize it. :/
Thanks for the help.
Ideally , with SF4 it shouldn't happen , but I would say contact Suitcase Fusion support for better assistance
Suitcase keeps getting fixed then they update it trying to do things they should not do in the first place and it seems they bring the same problems back.
I tried for many versions to workwith Suticase but gave it up after CS 1 and have been happy with Font Agent Pro and there are many user who just use the Apple Font Book manager application that comes with the system.
I've had no problems using Linotype FontExplorer, though admittedly, I'm still using CS5.
So I can confirm that it is not Suitcase Fusion causing Illustrator to freeze. It froze again today after 10 minutes of use.

Go to Mac HD/Applications/Adobe Illustrator/Plugins
look for font activation plugin there and if present , move it to the desktop and then check.
I am a long time user of Extensis products including suitecase, but I gave up this time.
SF4 keeps giving me a problem, freeze, Icon jumping crazy when quite.
So I unistalled SF4, and installed FontExplorer instead, seems to be working better.
Still under Demo to see how it works.
SF4 has better interface, but better than freezing.
Same problem, just started less than a week ago but happens basically everytime I use it, as a professional I cannot afford this unfortunately.
Happens to me often when:
- creating a New Document
- Adding object effects
- Copying and Pasting from other docs
- Opening random .ai files
- Saving for Web
- I'm sure more scenarios will continue to pop up
Same here. Wish there was a fix. I can confirm that it is not a Suitcase issue as I do not have that installed. It happens all the time just as it does for Falk1534. I've tried a couple of fixes across different forums but nothing has worked. Hopefully Adobe will fix the issue soon.
I have tried this before and if I delete the preferences file before starting the application, everything works fine. The second that I close and reopen, everything freezes again. At least deleting the preferences allows it to work for a while so it is a temporary fix.
Use Font Expoler, it works perfectly. I totally gave up on Suitecase, a piece of crap.
I was a long time users, more than 10 years.
Just get a demo first for free and see how it works.
Never freeze since swithched. And my MacPro is much faster now.
I like Suitcase interface, but I could not stand freezing so many times.
which will damage your system files with so many freezing problem.
Don't wait Adobe's fix, that's some kind of bugs in Suitecase.
I use that temporary fix too and it works well. Not a big complaint but its just a drag to do that routinely everytime; I find that I'll just leave the app open a lot.
Yea I gave up on SuitCase as well and haven't had any freezing issues since I completely removed all of SF and its plugin's
