Using MAC OS X 10.3.9
and CS 2
Sometimes it happens in Illustrator that the file cannot be saved, it says that the file is locked for use.
I remember the same problem also from PhotoShop 6 or something on Windows WX computers, so it is not a MAC or Illustrator specific issue.
Any ideas -- other than save with a different name, and remove the locked file after you restart the computer next time?
oops... Windows WX ==> Windows XP of course
Yes this is an old OS X, but cannot help that in our strict company environment.
If you are saving through a network, you may have some funny issues. Saving to the harddisk, and copying through the network, is a more troublefree way.
Old OS? AI10 on XP here.
