I am a student and i am working on illustrator cs3 and a couple of days ago, i tried to save my work and the program freezed. Since i didn't have any response form the program i had to end its task. Can somebody help me fix this problem since i have to finish my work for the mid-terms that are coming up very soon?
There is an issue that might cause this perhaps it is Suitcase Fusion which has been updated, perhpas you have a corrupt font, perhaps you permissions need repair.
Try doing a save as to a different location saving it with a different name.
Another suggestion: Preference corruptions create many strange issues.
You may try to Ctrl+Alt+Shift during startup of Illy, or use the instructions in the hint Move the folder.
The former is simpler, the latter is capable of solving more issues, and it reversible so you do not lose your preference settings in vain if it does not work.
