Illustrator freezes with Yosemite and new Wacom driver

I have a Wacom Intuos3 and have removed all the old software and preferences and installed the latest driver.  It took two conversations
with the Wacom Helpline and three instal/uninstals with restarts, but I finally got the tablet preferences to work.  Then Illustrator kept freezing up and acting wierd.
I've uninstalled the tablet software, but am sure missing my tablet.  Any ideas?

Was just on with tech support. I had a second monitor connected. when I disconnected it the problem went away. its a known issue with the resent Apple 10.10 update. they are getting a fix but no ETA. they had me uninstall and use a direct install link (Adobe CC 2014 Direct Download Links: Creative Cloud 2014 Release | ProDesignTools) ) to fall back to a earlier update of illustrator.

  • Buy new computer with Yosemite and downgrade to Mountain Lion?

    Is it possible to buy a new machine with Yosemite and instead somehow downgrade/revert to Mountain Lion?  There's a program I like to use that is no longer updated by the developer and isn't terribly stable on the latest two releases of OS X...

    No, except by running it inside a program such as VirtualBox, Parallels Desktop, or VMware Fusion.

    Yes, I am having this problem too (although I was sharing via a "copy link" command, not via email). My workaround fix was to log into via Safari and get the share link there.

  • How do i reinstall yosemite on new hard drive without a disk?

    I bought a used imac late 2009 as mine died and needed far to much to be repaired.  It came with yosemite installed.  I used carbon copy cloner were I had an external hard drive with a recent backup image.  I connected a usb external device and boot from my external backup.  I copied the image I had back to the new iMac internal HD.  I thought it would have been as simple as that. NOOOOOOO! that failed and now I am completely messed up.  Purchased software says my serials are no longer good. I can't do any work. Office 2011 and outlook won't even read my email. Adobe software hangs and won't allow the OnOne software I purchased work. I bought the latest version of OnOne 9 Suite and it fails to install stating to contact the vendor. (of course no one is there to help). I have several photo sessions I need to edit. I am under pressure.  I tried for hours to work around and try to resolve my issue.  I safe booted and used time machine.  It was chugging all night for 9 hours and in the end it said an error occurred and failed to restore my computer.  I have now had 1.5 hours of sleep and truly frustrated and had enough. I dug out my PC laptop and posting to this forum.  I gather at this point just say **** it and format and start over.  Documents are saved and photos are on a raid device. SO I am not concerned about my work.  I am concerned about getting the reinstalled software reinstalled because many of them when I tried to launch stated it was not compatible with Yosemite and to download a compatible version.  Of course the vendors want money to get the latest greatest.  I don't need the latest greatest because the version I had did exactly what I needed and I do not need anything more.  My email in outlook is a concern.  My livelihood, meaning how I make a living, is primarily based on email communications.  My business purchases are in email. My billing and receipts and sales are in email. The last time I had a catastrophic failure with outlook and hours and hours of trying to recover from backups, I ended up asking my clients to forward me their copies and just started over with Outlook.  iMail can't handle the 10,000 emails I deal with weekly and the deluge of email accounts I manage.   I could not find any other email client that offers what I need... Calendar, appointment collaboration, organization etc etc. All this does not change the fact I am still stuck.  I was told in a pop up this iMac is not registered on my Apple ID account.  I can't even find where my broken one is registered, remove it and add in this used one.  From what I can read, the solution is to bite the ******* bullet, again, and format and start over.  Well, with the downloads of MAC OS X I don't have a hard copy on disc to boot from and just do that.  With all the issues with Yosemite, I am not even 100% positive I want to go there and just be happy with Maverick and ignore the lies from Apple just how much better Yosemite is as it is not and just a license to print money with all the cash I need to spend to get my purchased software up to speed.  Ok, I have ranted enough.  I still believe that MAC is better than WINDOWS.  Considering to buy a WINDOWS PC had crossed my mind and when it crossed I pushed it in from of the MAC truck and lost that consideration. I am a Microsoft engineer and know all the reasons why not to buy Windows.  I need help from the community.  I can't afford to pay a Apple support guy that says just reboot and hold down this key and when it fails to help he says he will have someone call be back that is smarter than he is.  I am out the cash and never get that call.  Your suggestions, recommendations and "How To's" are very much appreciated.  Thank you for reading my query and my rant.  -Brian

    Thank you to all that helped.  I did get the CD from Apple Care and managed to rebuild from scratch. In conclusion, there should be a better way to help recover from a complete disaster. I lost the original computer and hard drive.  I had a Clone Copy of the hard drive I regularly updated.  I used Time Machine. I thought I had all my bases covered in the event of a disaster. Even the cloned hard drive is stored is a fire safe guaranteed not to exceed room temperature even if the safe was in a fire 2700 degrees for over 25 minutes.  (Enough time to have a fire department put water on the fire) The safe cost me a lot of money. The time Machine external hard drive is a RAID striped system with 5 HDD with a failover of 3 complete HDD failures simultaneously. Because of piracy, software installs will go to extraordinary lengths from having a license copy of the software cloned from one computer to another. I get it. People steal. Software companies deserve a pay cheque just as much as I do. I did what I did because of all the money and time I spend in setting up, installing and configuring my licensed software I wanted a fast resolution to recovery.  As I learned from this experience it is simply not possible. If your HD changes, there are several disc sectors that are used for licensing that is not recovered in a carbon copy. Carbon Copy to me I thought was old school Bit Copy if you remember. Not so.  Changing a motherboard or whole computer even if it is to a same make and model has issues too. It's called an ESN. Electronic Serial Number.  This number that is specific to every motherboard made is used in licensing software. I searched the net looking for a way to PAY to have a fail safe system for recovery.  I only found systems that are available or for very high sensitive information servers and is priced way out of reach for an average consumer.  Meaning, that a complete disaster in your city will not loose billable or liable information about you.  You can rest assure that after the zombie apocalypse you will still get your cell bill, hydro bill, mortgage payment schedules  and your criminal record will remain intact. We can thank Hitler for teaching us that error when he destroyed the records of the cities he overthrew.  It leaves me with an argument about accountability.  Why is it when I buy software, I own nothing.  It is a licensed agreement to use the software but I never own it.  The developer sides with the fact they own the intellectual property and can not just sell it once and loose it.  Agreed!  It's the legal departments of the companies that want a piece of that pie too. So they remove any accountability of that licensed agreement that would hold them accountable the end user does in fact own nothing.  When the software or product breaks down, their system they use that writes information to parts of your HDD that you can not back up and to be used against you because they don't trust you, there is plenty of small print that states they can not be held liable for their decisions. No matter what happens, their fault or not, with or without prejudice, they are not accountable, whatsoever. Being that I had no choice but beg and plead the people I paid money to for permission to use their software, on ways to help myself in a disaster, get copies back, to put me in the same state I was in before the disaster happened without getting further ahead of the game, I was simply told its not my problem or responsibility.  When I asked about accountability? I am told read the fine print and when you are done, pay me to get the old copies back, to get the bootable medium you need and all along they way, let me ram a few more policies down your throat and say, your working software you had is no longer supported and you need to buy the updated version.
    Can someone explain to me how I am a better person for all this.  How about at least explain why I should not cave in like most other people I know and seek out pirated copies instead of paying for them.  It's certainly not for support. I go none and what I was offered I had to pay for on top of paying for the license agreement.
    My personal argument came to this head.  I asked why do companies and people want to rip off each other. Was it greed?  Was it economy? Was it the state of technology is changing so fast everyone is eventing on how to deal with this by the seat of their pants?  Here is my conclusion:  People generally are followers and not leaders.  People that are leaders, thinkers and risk takers are  generally outcasts, different and unusual people. Einstein said there is a very thin line between genius and insanity.  He never said if they crossed that line or not or what happens.  I think, the ones that do cross the line are more than we would like to consider acceptable. We coerced by their insane thinking, there leadership and their ideas.  We elect them and let them form governments. We allow them to invent things and then tell us we can't live without it. I know most of you agree and some of you will say it has been going on for a long time.  It's true. But like I said we are mostly followers. Thus it has been accepted as a way of life. Right?  Wrong! The masses are getting fed up. They are being tired of being ripped off.  Need to test this??? Just go a mall and on it's busiest night stand in the middle and shout at the top of your lungs "FREE 10" TABLETS, RIGHT OVER THERE" and point at some poor unsuspecting store.  Watch what happens   People love the word free. Because they are tired of not getting value for that they pay for.  Free Software, Free Games, Free this and that.  People download by the millions. Why, they no longer see the value of one person making money and getting value for that hard earned money. They are tired of paying for it and getting nothing. The know this intimately. Themselves are ripped off every day by government, insurance companies, banks, energy resources and yes even software companies. We have learned from the best, well at least the most insane.  Here is a thought to leave you with as I seek to ponder about this experience and how I thought I had done the right thing for myself... get my value for my dollar:  Have we been here before?  YES, many times.  The most recent one like this were the fat bubble burst was WWII.  What happened in that war was not so much about the atrocities of the murdered and killed, the real story was the living, the survivors.  The playing field was leveled.  It no longer mattered just how rich you were, how new of a car your drove or what job you had made you different from everyone else. There was one objective. Survive. Live to see another day. After the war the survivors were not liberated. We had a great depression.  Overcoming the loss of that war and the rebuilding that needed to be done when no one was willing to pay to have it done. We had to put our differences aside. Our culture, our creed, our resolve had no bearing. We were all in the same leveled playing field of life.  My pondering is leaving me one tough question... What happened to us.  How did we become so greedy and so racist with each other that we threw out accountability. Not only did we through it out, we all said ion way way or another that it was acceptable. Our problems may very well be different from each other but what has not changed we all feel we deserve respect and should hold each other accountable for our decisions. What happened to that very resolve that government bodies, religious leaders and factions, manufacturing and developing companies all feel this resolve does not apply to them.  What happened? 
    LOL: Funny how a 12 cent CD could have been offered in the first place with a little knowledge being shared could have misdirected what I just said to the focus of this group. Wow.
    Thank you people for helping me with my issues.  I truly appreciate it. Thank you to those of you that put up with my rant. More thanks to those who read it. My sincerest apologies to those I reminded just how life *****.

  • Pictures disappeared after installing Yosemite and new Iphoto. Why

    Pictures disappeared after installing Yosemite and new Iphoto. Why ?

    I also started having problems with iPhoto after installing Yosemite.  Some of the Event collections lost the picture and just has a grey square in its place.  When I click on the Event, it shows a white dotted lined square for each picture and if I click on the picture, it shows an exclamation mark.
    Check, if you also are having a folder "Old Masters" inside the iPhoto Library package, as described by  Muhamad Abdulkadir.
    Ctrl-click (or right-click) your iPhoto Library in the Pictures folder , then select "Show Package Contents".  If you are seeing a folder "Old Masters", copy this folder out of the library. Look inside - are the original image files of the problematic photos inside?
    Are any photos in your "Masters"folder?

  • N650-1GD5/OCV1 freeze with artifacts and crash

    Good morning everyone
    First of all, I will start to present the configuration of my computer
    PSU: Sirtec High Power 500W Bronze, PFC Active
    MB: MSI 970A-G43 (bought 2 weeks ago)
    CPU: AMD Athlon II X2 240 (2.8 GHz) - Running stock with AMD Cooler since i bought it, around 35-43 C operating 
    RAM: KingMax 4GB DDR3 1333 MHz (1 x 4GB Module)
    VGA: N650-1GD5/OCV1 (MSI GeForce GTX 650, running with stock cooler and stock frequency, i have never oc on it)
    HDD1: WD 640GB Caviar Black Edition, SATA2 32MB Cache
    HDD2: WD 500 GB Caviar Blue, SATA2, 16MB Cache
    DVD Writer 1: LG GH22NS50
    DVD Writer 2: Optiarc AD-7280S
    Card Reader 3.5"
    I'm an very very casual gamer, i play games once or twice a week; in the last period i didn't played games for one month; i've used my pc for mail, office, watching movies, messenger, facebook, web browsing, hdd data recovery, programming php. Before upgrading to 970A-G43, i had the same configuration - except MB and RAM (i used for 4 years K9A2GM V3 with 4GB (2x2GB) DDR2 800 KingMax and the actually N650-1GD5/OCV1; played games with no problems).
    After the upgrade, i installed OS Windows XP SP3 with clean install, AHCI Mode, latest drivers - no problems 'till there. I have installed latest version of DirectX 9.0c and some games: Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Euro Truck Simulator 2, Sonic and All-Stars Racing Transformed. All with same problem: pc freezes with artifacts and then freeze - sometimes after 3-4 minutes of playing, othertimes after 10-15 minutes.
    I've checked the RAM with MemTest86 for one night, no errors. I've checked the CPU and GPU Temperature, all stable (CPU around 40, GPU around 70 under full load). I've stressed up the system with Prime95 and Furmark latest version running at the same time - all stable (Tested for 30 minutes, CPU around 43 C, GPU around 85 C - no freeze, no crash).I installed 3D Mark 06, i ran it and it freezes in-time of first test or after it.
    VGA driver was 320.49 WHQL initially, downloaded from nvidia website. I uninstalled it, cleaned my OS with Driver Sweeper, installed latest version from MSI Website (MSI Graphics Driver 306.81 ). Both drivers, same problems.
    I'm pretty sure that there is no problem with PSU or MB's VRM (VRM supports 125W TDP, CPU is running 65W. My old boad K9A2GM V3 has only 65W and there were no problem). If there were problems, the system would crash in prime 95 and furmark running at the same time, i think.
    I didn't tested yet my VGA on other PC, neither another VGA in my PC.
    Any suggestion would be appreciated.
    P.S.: In BIOS, all is set on AUTO - except DDR Speed - Manually set to 1333 MHZ with auto timings.
    C1E Enabled, Cool and Quiet Activated, EUP 2013 Enabled.
    I have flashed MB to latest BIOS, v10.3; same problem
    Any suggestion is appreciated.
    Thanks in advance,
    Best regards!

    VGA Card is dead. Probably at least one memory chip died or has errors on it.  Testet on another PC and results are same, in 3D Mark and Crysis 3 too.
    I sent the card to warranty services. 
    Problem is solved.
    Thanks a lot to all of you who read my post.

  • Will internet recovery work on my mid 2010 MBP with yosemite and the firmare internet recovoery update designed for OS lion

    will internet recovery work on my mid 2010 MBP with yosemite and the firmare internet recovery update designed for OS lion

    Yes, it does. The point is can your computer use full Internet Recovery with the firmware update or not. If not then you have to begin with the Snow Leopard DVD that came with your computer and do an Erase and Install.
    Clean Install of Snow Leopard
    Be sure to make a backup first because the following procedure will erase
    the drive and everything on it.
         1. Boot the computer using the Snow Leopard Installer Disc or the Disc 1 that came
             with your computer.  Insert the disc into the optical drive and restart the computer.
             After the chime press and hold down the  "C" key.  Release the key when you see
             a small spinning gear appear below the dark gray Apple logo.
         2. After the installer loads select your language and click on the Continue
             button. When the menu bar appears select Disk Utility from the Utilities menu.
             After DU loads select the hard drive entry from the left side list (mfgr.'s ID and drive
             size.)  Click on the Partition tab in the DU main window.  Set the number of
             partitions to one (1) from the Partitions drop down menu, click on Options button
             and select GUID, click on OK, then set the format type to MacOS Extended
             (Journaled, if supported), then click on the Apply button.
         3. When the formatting has completed quit DU and return to the installer.  Proceed
             with the OS X installation and follow the directions included with the installer.
         4. When the installation has completed your computer will Restart into the Setup
             Assistant. Be sure you configure your initial admin account with the exact same
             username and password that you used on your old drive. After you finish Setup
             Assistant will complete the installation after which you will be running a fresh
             install of OS X.  You can now begin the update process by opening Software
             Update and installing all recommended updates to bring your installation current.
    Download and install Mac OS X 10.6.8 Update Combo v1.1.
    However, if you can use full Internet Recovery:
    Install Yosemite, Mavericks, Lion/Mountain Lion Using Internet Recovery
    Be sure you backup your files to an external drive or second internal drive because the following procedure will remove everything from the hard drive.
    Boot to the Internet Recovery HD:
    Restart the computer and after the chime press and hold down the COMMAND-OPTION- R keys until a globe appears on the screen. Wait patiently - 15-20 minutes - until the Recovery main menu appears.
    Partition and Format the hard drive:
    Select Disk Utility from the main menu and click on the Continue button.
    After DU loads select your newly installed hard drive (this is the entry with the mfgr.'s ID and size) from the left side list. Click on the Partition tab in the DU main window.
    Under the Volume Scheme heading set the number of partitions from the drop down menu to one. Click on the Options button, set the partition scheme to GUID then click on the OK button. Set the format type to Mac OS Extended (Journaled.) Click on the Partition button and wait until the process has completed. Quit DU and return to the main menu.
    Reinstall Lion/Mountain Lion. Mavericks: Select Reinstall Lion/Mountain Lion, Mavericks and click on the Install button. Be sure to select the correct drive to use if you have more than one.
    Note: You will need an active Internet connection. I suggest using Ethernet if possible because it is three times faster than wireless.
    This should restore the version of OS X originally pre-installed on the computer.
