You may try a search for Adobe Illustrator CS4 Settings, or for aiprefs.
i tried it..but is says no item is matched... would that be something wrong with my previous installation??
I do not know.
What appears if you just search for Adobe Illustrator?
That sounds strange, Mimi.
Do things works normally, tools, opening/saving files, and all?
yeap, they are all fine. the reason that i need to delect the current preferences is what the Adobe book telling to,
otherwise it would affect another work in illustrator...
Trash the prefs: +C:\Users\[your name]\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Illustrator+ on Win Vista.
I picked this up from an earlier thread I think Mylenium posted it, I don't know why the PC people don't stop by and help out with this and post a clear path to the Adobe Illustrator Settings folder or its equivalent on the pc?
i could work that out: +C:\Users\[your name]\
but i still could not find: AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Illustrator+
I will add that you might have to trash the whole settings folder.
Sheesh why does every article on this make it so hard?
Instructions based on my experience - Illy CS4 on the Mac.
1. Close Illy.
2. Open Finder and go to:
(main > users >) home > Library > Preferences > Adobe Illustrator CS4 Settings > en_US
3. Rename the "en_US" folder to anything else.
4. Start Illy.
5. The "en_US" folder will be generated fresh. You can copy individual bits back from your copy and see if your problems return. (I moved my Workspace and Keyboard Shortcuts back).
That's what it is for me. Of course if you have a different version of Illy or you aren't in the US, or you aren't on a Mac, it'll be different. I'm guessing that's easy enough to figure out.
Also, if you want you can just trash the "Adobe Illustrator Prefs" file in "en_US".
PS Adobe, did you really have to use a custom text box widget for this comment editor? It sucks. Please stop rebuilding things needlessly (e.g. the windowing system). Thanks!
Thanks for including this with screenshot.
The comment Editor is part of the Jive System that the Forum is based on. What kind of problems are you having with it? I myself have had Firefox Mac v.3 crash while loading the widget several times, and reported that to Firefox, but I don't know if it's really their problem, something to do with the Jive software, or something else altogether.
