    Sometimes cannot save project because file is locked

    JJM747

      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?
