Can't open the Illustration. Can't print the illustration. Disk full error . . .

Since CS5, now CS5.1 I have had periods, sometimes multiple times a day, that I have this error, "Can't open Illustration. Can't print the illustration. Disk full error has occured while printing."
I don't understand if I am alone in the problem or what. But after 3 days of the problem starting up again, I am quickly going nuts - I was close to that point before these issues.
Facts:
It happens without warning! These are native illustrator files that I created or have been given to me.
I am NOT printing when it happens.
I cannot open ANY illustrator file once the error occurs.
If I quit Illustrator and re-open, it still does NOT work.
I have to restart my entire computer, then it works fne - until it happens again, which is 5-6 times a day.
I am running 10.6.8  on a 2.9 Core 2 Duo 24" iMac with 4GB ram.
Doe anyone have any idea what the problem is or how to fix it? Please!!!!!

Probably a font cache, corrupt font and now a preference corruption as well.
Bloated font cache an do this.
So can a permission problem
So download ONYX it is free clear out your font cache, if you have cocktail that will do as well. As mfar as the corrut font Font Agent Pro would be useful for helping you locate the  corrupt font.
As for the preferences
1. Quit Illustrator.
2.Go to User/username/Library/Preferences/ Adobe illustrator CS# Settings and trash the settings folder, the whole folder not just the contents of the folder..
3. Start Illustrator. Illustrator creates a new preferences file.
(someone here will advice you to rename the folder but that only applies to the Windows system just trash and empty the trash and a fresh one will be made)
Then use the disk Utility to repair the permissions.
You can do all of thesee and maybe avoid the corrupt font and see if that works but I suggest you do all three and then if it happens again trouble shoot your fonts.
If this does not help probably a conflict with a plug in or other third party software.

  • How can I make signature darker when I print the report?

    I need to put my manager's signature on the report. The signature is too light, How can I make it darker when I print the report?
    I used file link and OLE, both did't make it.
    Thanks.

    No way to do it directly in the report. You need to work with signature image file using any graphic software to increase its contrast. The easiest probably would be to use Paintbrush and change the image to black-and-white, then save back as jpeg file.

  • HT201209 My mom who lives in Canada send me an iTunes gift and I can't open it. I live in the USA. Is there a way for me to redeem that gift?

    My mom who lives in Canada send me an iTunes gift and I can't open it. I live in the USA. Is there a way for me to redeem that gift?

    No, all iTunes gifts and gift cards are country-specific - so a Canadian gift can only be redeemed in Canada onto a Canadian iTunes account.
    I assume that it's an emailed gift ? She can try resending it to somebody else in Canada : http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1541
    Or, and if she's been charged, she can try contacting iTunes Support and see if they will refund or credit her : http://www.apple.com/support/itunes/contact/ - click on Contact iTunes Store Support on the right-hand side of the page, then Purchases, Billing & Redemption

  • Can't open iTunes. When I attempt, the following message appears: You are attempting to add a new iTunes U collection but iTunes U is disabled. Would you like to enable iTunes U?

    I Can't open iTunes. When I attempt, the following message appears: You are attempting to add a new iTunes U collection but iTunes U is disabled. Would you like to enable iTunes U?  If I click either yes or no, the same box just reopens.  As far as I know, I have not done anything with iTunes U.  The software is up to date and I have also reinstalled itunes.  Any ideas?

    Since this problem, I was able to reinstall again and reboot, and then 'stop' while the library was being opened (that was another window that I could not close, that would come up before the error message, this time I chose to stop it).  Now only music I have purchased appears, none of my other >1,000 albums I manually added via my CD collection.  About 10% are in different music folders (I don't know why they aren't in the same one), but the other 90% are missing.  Any ideas??

    What in particular didn't you like about Firefox 6?
    You can undo a lot of changes, either via changing settings or prefs on the <b>about:config</b> page or via extensions.
    *https://support.mozilla.com/kb/common-questions-after-updating-firefox
    Do a clean reinstall of the version that you want to use.
    Download a fresh Firefox copy and save the file to the desktop.
    *Firefox 3.6.x: http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/all-older.html
    *Firefox 6.0.x: http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/all.html
    * Uninstall your current Firefox version.
    * Do not remove personal data when you uninstall the current version or you lose your bookmarks and other data in the profile folder.
    Remove the Firefox program folder before installing that newly downloaded copy of the Firefox installer.
    * It is important to delete the Firefox program folder to remove all the files and make sure that there are no problems with files that were leftover after uninstalling.
    Your bookmarks and other profile data are stored elsewhere in the Firefox Profile Folder and won't be affected by a reinstall, but make sure that you do not select to remove personal data if you uninstall Firefox.

  • TS3276 I can not open gmail attachments  on my iPad, the icon for the file is a down arrow

    I can not open gmail attachments  on my iPad, the icon for the file is a down arrow....  that only happend on Gmail account

    It could be just an issue with the gmail server. I don't know what settings can be made for attatchments there. I generally leave those messages with large attatchments alone and view them on the computer. I was finding that certain large files like .wmv would sometimes take 5 to 10 minutes to open on the iPad.
    Yes it's aggrivating, but I don't have that answer either.

  • I can't open i tunes, I've followed the instructions given on this site but it still won't open

    I can't open I tunes, I've folowed the instructions given on this site but it still won't open. Any alternative suggestions?

    For general advice see Troubleshooting issues with iTunes for Windows updates.
    The steps in the second box are a guide to removing everything related to iTunes and then rebuilding it which is often a good starting point unless the symptoms indicate a more specific approach. Review the other boxes and the list of support documents further down page in case one of them applies.
    Your library should be unaffected by these steps but there is backup and recovery advice elsewhere in the user tip.
    If you've already tried a complete uninstall and reinstall try opening iTunes in safe mode (hold down CTRL+SHIFT as you start iTunes) then going to Edit > Preferences > Storeand turning off Show iTunes in the Cloud purchases. You may find iTunes will now start normally.

    The alert message is just telling you that a specific feature won't use the GPU. This message is innocuous. It only means that the processing of one specific, obsolete feature will use the CPU, not the GPU.
    Are you saying that After Effects won't start or open your project?
