    Is there a limit to the number of files / file size that can be opened in Illustrator or Photoshop simultaneously?

      We have a user who has a habit of simultaneously opening multiple files in PS and AI (along with other Windows programs). This causes AI to crash.  Memory (RAM) utilization reaches almost 100%.

      Is there a limit wherein PS and AI can handle?

      What should be the best practice for a designer in utilizing these applications specially in dealing with large file sizes?

      Should we recommend an upgrade or should we tell the user to limit opening multiple files?
