I have been working with the creative cloud on a mac version 10.6.8. Everything was working smoothly until this week when suddenly illustrator has started running extremely slow. It takes about a minute to select something, and then will freeze, but never crash. I brought it into the genius bar, and I have enough RAM to support the programs. Indesign and photoshop are working fine, and I tried making a new small document in illustrator but all the same problems remain. Do I need to update to Maverick, or reinstall illlustrator?
Try to turn syncing off.
