glitch happening consistently. why is illustrator saving .ai format as .pdf??? application walks through the entire .ai dialog box (not the pdf dialog box), yet a .pdf file is saved. please help.
It may be that the OS is not making the correct associations with the file types. You might have an .ai file but it has a .pdf icon You might try downloading this:
and see if it will work for you. It will install an item in the Contectual Menus that will force the OS to reassociate the files to the correct icon.
Where is the CS4 update?
Is Adobe planning to sell us the new CS5 version instead of providing an update?
I see Snow Leopard.
Log into a new user account and see if it happens there perhaps the finders preferences are corrupt.
