Am I the only one for whom Illustrator 5.5 unexpectedly crashes when I try to save a doc?

Am I the only one for whom Illustrator 5.5 unexpectedly crashes when I try to save a doc on Yosemite?Compatibility with Yosemite — Illustrator CS5.5

Various folders. It usually allows me to re-save older files, but a new save is practically impossible to accomplish. I tried Reducing Transparency, as suggested in earlier posts to no avail. Also, when I drag an eps icon into Illustrator, it asks me if I want to retain the 9-slice scaling options for symbols — not sure what that means. Tried that both ways, with no results. Just had it crash on me 8 times this evening!

  • After the latest Security Update 2012-001 (Mac OS X 10.6.8) my Adobe Photoshop CS 8, Dreamweaver 8, and InDesign CS programs crash when I try to save a file.

    After the latest Security Update 2012-001 (Mac OS X 10.6.8) my Adobe Photoshop CS 8, Dreamweaver 8, and InDesign CS programs crash when I try to save a file. HELP!!!

    Apparently some are reporting that this causes the older PowerPC (PPC) applications that are supported in 10.6 via 'Rosetta' to crash upon attempting to open/save/print using any dialog box, or fail in other similar ways such as simply not printing or quitting, or freezing/hanging/crashing of the application.
    I have read of some companies that have indeed submitted proper bug reports to Apple, but that is not a guarantee of a bug-fix being issued.
    You might wish to read:
    If you are unsure if you are still using PowerPC apps, if the application is currently running, look under the 'Activity Monitior' (in Applications -> Utilities), or alternatively you could check in the System Profiler, Applications. Check the column "Type".
    Here is a fairly simple way you can restore you system and restore you applications functionality again, if you don't have a recent clone or good Time Machine backup that you can restore from. If you do, restore from your backup prior to having installed the Security Update 2012-001.
    Time Machine restore:
    If you are restoring a backup made by a Mac to the same Mac
    With your backup drive connected, start up your Mac from the Lion recovery partition (Command-R at startup) or Mac OS X v10.6 installation disc. Then use the "Restore From Time Machine Backup" utility. Select the backup prior to your issues, and it will be restored back to the state it was in at that time.
    If you can't easily restore from a backup, you can instead do the following:
    - You first start by reinstalling your OS X 10.6.x, this will preserve all your user data, your applications, no worries there.
    - Then install the Mac OS X 10.6.8 Update Combo v1.1 (links provided below)
    - Make sure you're printers are showing up correctly in your system preferences, if not, re-add the printers
    - Then finally, run the Apple Software Update (by pulling down the Apple Menu), and install any and all remaining updates, except do not then re-install the Security Update 2012-001. It is possible that you may have to reboot after installing some of the updates, and you may even need to run it a 2nd time to make sure that you've got all updates, except NOT the Security Update 2012-001.

  • When I try to save a doc to my server I sometimes get this: The document could not be saved. There was a Macintosh system error (-5000). What does it mean?

    When I try to save a doc to my server I sometimes get this: The document could not be saved. There was a Macintosh system error (-5000). What does it mean?

    What kind of file are you saving, and what sort of clientserver setup do you have?
    If you're using MS Office, it doesn't play nice with OS X Server, particularly with network homes.

  • Illustrator hangs or crashes when I try to save as PDF

    I am using Illustrator to creates designs for a Flex app. My document has a lot of symbols, rasterized images and layers (it's about 8.1 MB).
    Illustrator has stopped doing two things that I need it to do:
    1) It just hangs (infinite beachball on OS X) when I try to Save As an "Acrobat Viewable" AI file.
    2) It also hangs (or crashes on my PC) when I try to save as PDF, regardless of the options I choose.
    I can Save or Save As as long as I don't include Acrobat support.
    Any ideas on this? Thanks!

    Started eliminating layers, one by one, and trying a PDF export.
    It hung and hung and hung until I had deleted about 10 first level layers... then it hung for a bit and boom! It exported.
    I went into the original doc and deleted the last layer I had removed from the test doc and it hung as usual.
    My conclusion? No bad objects - just too many layers for Illustrator to handle in a timely manner. I've officially taxed the program, which was totally crashing it on my Windows machine.
    Why so many layers? Since I am skinning a Flex app by exporting a .swf skin file from Illustrator, I have all of the app layouts in one .ai file. This consists of 46 first level layers, and hundreds of secondary and tertiary layers. It also includes a truckload of embedded graphics sprinkled throughout for layout purposes. Plus symbols.
    It's just too much for Illustrator - a program not really designed for this workflow - to handle.
    I don't want to make separate files for each site section as that'd require me to port the symbols back and forth all the time when I make a simple change, like a button style adjustment.
    Any other advice on managing this better is appreciated, but nothing jumps out as an easy and scalable solution.
    Thanks for the help, especially jean.

  • Illustrator crashing when I try to save.

    Having problems with Illustrator CS6 on Mac. When I come to save a file, more often than not, it freezes, crashes & then closes. I tried to download the software patch but this is coming up with an error message when I click the icon to install it, the error message says something like 'This download is not applicable for your product' :-s Really stuck & it's beginning to slow my work process down quite a bit.
    I tried the online chat but to be blunt it was useless! I was asked to call support but I really don't have time to do this during the day so I'm hoping someone can help me please :-)

  • Am I the only one having trouble with netflix on iPad?  When I type in a movie title to search, I get a message that there is no such title.  It's a well known title -- Annie Hall.  Same with other woo

    I wanted to say that I can't find any Woody Allen movies on Netflix on my iPad, but can on my computer.  (I don't think the new netflix ap for iPad works as well as the older one.)  Am I doing something wrong?

    Annie Hall is available on DVD only.
    It is not available for streaming and I believe movies available for streaming are the only movies available with the Netflix app on an iOS device.

  • Am I the only one that has safari restart every few minutes when using private browsing?

    I have no idea why, but when I use private browsing on safari, it seems to have a mind of it's own once and a while. Randomly, it decides to quit without the "quit unexpectidly" part normally found in this issue, and when I go back onto safari, all of the tabs I had open are no longer there.

    Nope, that's all I use is Private browsing on it and it's never behaved this way.

  • Photoshop crashes when I try and save for web and devices. Making the image size smaller does not help.

    I'm trying to make a lopping .gif from an animation that I made. It's 147 total frames. It's crashed about 6 times now every time I either try and Save for Web or even just save the document on my desktop so in case it crashes I can reopen PS and recover it. Making the image size smaller (original size is 1920 x 1080 with resolution 72) does not help, it still makes the *ding* error when I attempt to save. I made the image more than half of the original size and the Save for Web box actually came up that time, but when I tried clicking save it said there was an error and PS crashed without warning.

    Look at the crash report for your Photoshop crashes see what they show

  • Adobe Illustrator (CS5) keeps crashing when I try to save my files

    So in the last few weeks, my adobe illustrator has started acting up and won't save my files unless they are in the folder that the program makes itself. Those are usually files with long names that are a series of numbers and letters. Even if I copy and paste the name into a search, my computer isn't able to locate the folder, which makes it impossible to do any work because it will only save to one place. Has anyone else had this issue and know how to fix it?

    Does this help any? I'm trying to save my files to my desktop (or anywhere locatable for that matter) But it only allows me to save to this file for some reason. Even if I copy and paste the name of the file, it does not appear when I try to find my file outside of AI. When I try to choose a different location, I get the error message below

  • Frame 10 crashes when I try to save the book file

    I open Frame docs that constitute a book, along with the book file. After working for a while, I save All Files In Book. This used to work just fine, but for the last couple of weeks it has been making Frame crash.
    Frame also crashes if I'm not in the book file but try to save All Open Files, or if I try to save only the book file.
    The docs were created in Frame 8, but I have had them open and changed and resaved them multiple times for the past several months with no issues until now.
    I have recreated the book, but the same thing happens.
    Has there been a recent update that might have affected this somehow? Or must I just stop using this helpful feature and save each chapter separately, and hope that the book file won't corrupt anything when I generate using it?
    This has been quite frustrating, especially since it's a new development without any cause I can readily see.
    Thanks for any help you can give.

    HI KayH123
    First of all you need to rectify whether it is Framemaker specifi issue or is the issue of Internal Error is with the Book.
    Create a test book with 1-2 documents from your original book, save it and observe you are facing the same issue or not.
    If yes, then instead of original documents create test documents under test book. If also you face this then update Framemaker.
    Now if Framemaker does not crash in new book then it means the issue is with the book that you created and may be inside the document in the book which is causing this issue.

  • Word crashes when I try to save after installing the Canon driver.

    I have Windows Vista running Microsoft Office 2007.  Word was working just fine until I installed the Canon MX432 driver. Now every time I try to save a document, Word crashes.  I have tried to repair Office.  I have uninstalled and reinstalled the Office program.  I have closed the Canon solutions menu on the desktop.  Nothing works.  Any suggestions?

    I love these stab in the dark solutions (on my part) goes...
    If I were you, I'd try changing the printer default to something other than the MX432 just in case Word doesn't like the new printer.  If that solves the crashing problem, try to  reinstall the driver again before setting the printer default to the MX432.  Are you sure you've got the driver that is compatible with Vista?  Vista is finicky when it comes to drivers.  
    If that doesn't work at all, I'd do a driver uninstall then a system restore to before the install.  This will put everything back to when it was hunky dory, as they say.  G'luck.

  • Outlook Express Address this the only one for PCs?

    Directed to any PC experts!
    I have two mail accounts on my iPhone 3G
    1) a gmail account
    2) an outlook express account (pop 3 server)- this is my main email address and i've had it for a long time.
    If i were to delete the outlook express email account (because it appears to be kind of buggy lately) would i lose my windows address book, which is of course, provided by outlook express? This is the address book that syncs to the iPhone. Outlook express is a program, not a free floating internet email like hotmail and i am thinking that just deleting the email component would not delete the address book which seems to be an integral part of windows.
    Does anyone have any ideas on this?

    The address book used by Outlook Express is a separate application from the OE application.
    Deleting an email account from OE will not touch or affect the address book used by OE.
    You don't need to access an email account with OE to sync your iPhone's address book direct with the address book used by OE via the iTunes sync process.

  • I can not play Garden of Time the only game I play adobe flash 11.3r300 crashs when I long in

    This is one crummy program I am in my 60's and just play Garden of Times which I payfor on facebook. Since the "new up date 11.3r300" I can not play. I have worked at getting a group of people together to play about 50 of us. Adobe Flash was great, after the 6/10/12 down load I can not play this game at all. It has sent you 10 crash notices yesterday or more.
    I am not computer savey make it go away or correct the dam thing this is not marketable to anyone!!!!

    If you have the ClickToFlash extension installed, that can prevent Flash based video from streaming. Safari > Preferences > Extensions
    It can also be installed as a plugin in /Library/Internet-Plug-Ins.
    Try uninstalling the currently installled Flash plugin (required for most YouTube content) then reinstall new >  Troubleshoot Flash Player | Mac OS
    From your Safari menu bar top of your screen click Safari > Preferences then select the Advanced tab.
    Select:  Show Develop menu in menu bar
    Now from the menu bar click Develop > Empty Caches

  • Illustrator cs5.1 crashing when saving or exporting file. Crashes when I try to save to folder. Doesn't recover any of the work I have done. HELP!

    Also ... I have a mac and just updated my system to yosemite 10.10.3

    Downgrade the system.
    Of course you could try and fix all user privileges.
    Also: do you save to harddisk? You should.
    Try and delete preferences.
    Did you uninstall, run the Cleaner tool and then reinstall Illustrator after updating the OS?
