Slow performance in Illustrator CS6 for duplicating the repeating gradient dot pattern

Hi. I am using CS6 currently to do my gradient dot pattern using the 'Blend & 'Transform Each' tools for an artwork size of 4300mm x 2800mm.
I am using a 64-bits and 8 GB memory but my computer is not responding really well.
During the duplicating process, it will be lagging so badly and sometimes the illustrator will appear a box saying 'out of memory' and my artwork will be gone.
Do I need a better specification for my computer to run this? (Higher RAM? Processor? Graphic Card?)
Here are the specification of my computer:
Intel(R) Xeon(R) Processor E5-2609 (Quad Core, 2.40GHz, 10MB, 6.4 GT/s)
8GB (4x2GB) DDR3 RDIMM Memory, 1333MHz,ECC
2 units of 1TB 7200RPM Hard Drive
NVIDIA Quadro 600
Windows(R) 7 Professional 64 bit
or is there any method of creating the gradient dot pattern so that I can do it efficiently?

Hi Mylenium,
These are the gradient patterns which I am trying to achieve on an artwork size of 4300mm x 2800mm:
                                               Pattern A                                                                                                                                    Pattern B
Hope to get some advices from you.

  • Mac 10.9.5 trying to launch Illustrator CS6 for first time and prompts Java even though I have Java 8 installed.

    Mac 10.9.5 trying to launch Illustrator CS6 for first time and won't launch, prompts for Java 6 even though I have Java 8 installed!
    Apple says Java 6 is very insecure and not to use it.  I have the latest Java installed.  Why won't Illustrator launch?  What else can I do?

    I believe you should be able to get round the issue by following this:

  • Question : illustrator CS6 (for PC) in my new iMac ??

    Can I install my illustrator CS6 (for PC) in my new iMac ?

    If by, "the e-mail program," you mean, Apple's "Mail" application, you make contacts by inputting them into the "Address Book" application. It's a separate application.
    Since I have no idea what you mean by, "my e-mail contact list," I can't recommend a method for transferring contacts to your "Address Book."
    You need to provide more information to get the answers that you need.
    What's the name of the e-mail program that you want to use, i.e., Mail, Outlook, Entourage?
    "New iMac e-mail," is not specific.
    What's the name of the e-mail program that you were using on your PC, i.e., Outlook, Outlook Express, etc.?

  • Why does the document window in illustrator cs6 move to the far left when I reopen the file?

    why does the document window in illustrator cs6 move to the far left when I reopen the file?

    Hi John,
    thanks for the fast response.  cs5 remembered the window position.  I like having the window in the middle as I have a 27" monitor.  I just upgraded to cs6 yesterday and I'm sure it was remembering the window document position.  I think.  If i find out how to fix this, I'll post it here.
    And while I'm on the subject of cs6, why the f*** did adobe combine the stroke and swatches pallettes?  Now I forever have to click stroke and swatch tabs all day.  And I love the army and navy file icons of photoshop and illustrator.  I won't comment on Acrobat X.  ; (

  • Problem running Illustrator CS6 for the first time

    I just installed Illustrator CS6 from the Creative Cloud and the following message appears as I try to start the program "Unable to set maximum number of files to be opened" and then it closes again.
    Can somebody help me?
    Many thanks!

    This was a known bug for some users in 16.0.0. It seems to have gotten fixed in the latest update (16.1.0) that was released end August. Run the update (look under Help > Updates) and hopefully this issue should get resolved.

  • HT202912 I can't open Adobe Illustrator CS6 without installing the legacy Java SE 6 runtime. I can't get/find the right legacy Java SE 6 download website.

        I'm trying house Adobe Illustrator but I keep getting this message " To open Adobe Illustrator CS6, you need to install the legacy Java SE 6 runtime" It also reads "Click More Info. to visit the legacy Java SE 6 download website".  When I click "More Info." it just takes me to a site for some version of Java that still can't open Illustrator!!!!!!  What's going on here & how can this be fixed ASAP????  I have work to do!!!!

    I'm having the same issue. I keep getting:

    Is there another link somewhere?

  • Can't open PSD file to layers in Illustrator CS6 for editing?

    I need to edit a Photoshop PSD file that has layers.
    I believe vector lines can be edited in Photoshop but I only have PS Elements and can only edit the text.
    I do have Illustrator CS6 but when I open the PSD file it will not open to separate layers, even if I choose this in the open options.
    Maybe Illustrator cannot do this?
    Can anyone advise please?
    Thank you,

    hemmickreef wrote:
    Although I can export as PSD from Illustrator - will PS read the layered files though?
    If you set up the file accordingly: yes.
    You have to take special care of some stuff. Search for it on this forum or the manual. It has been discussed here.

    What about EPS?
    Forget about EPS. And especially in this context.

    Yes, but only clipping masks. And only simple paths.

  • Slow performance problem in CS6...

    I have had this problem for a LONG time and I am finally just fed up with it. I have a file that has 4 artboards that are 768px X 640px in RGB mode. The file size is 3.7MB and has a few placed PSD and PNG files. If I try to do ANYTHING, it freezes for 5-10sec before it does anything, and sometimes doesn't do what I requested, something as simple as "Fit Artboard in Window" will lock Illustrator up and sometimes my entire machine! The only other programs I have running are Outlook and Bridge. It gets so bad I basically have to walk away and regain my composure or else I would tear my hair out!. Below are my specs
    Windows 7 64bit SP1
    8gb of RAM
    Intel Core i5-2400 3.1GHz
    500gb HDD
    AMD Radeon HD 6350 512mb
    Illustrator 16.0.3
    The memory usage when it does this for Illustrator doesn't go above 400mb and CPU usage is 07. Does anyone have any ideas what might be causing this?! I have tried puting each artboard on it's own layer and hiding that layer while I'm not working on it, but that doesn't do anything either. I checked the Event Viewer and didn't see any warnings or errors at the times this occurs either. PLEASE HELP!!!!!

    I don't know if it is unique to your computer, this file you have or just AI. I tried to replicate the setup you are using but don't experience the lag.
    I am now using Win8 64-bit, but on my previous laptop I didn't experience anything abnormal using Win7 64-bit.
    The above also applies to the PNG redraw issue.
    Can you share the file? If so, upload to and either plop a link here in the thread, or, if sensitive/not for world-consumption, consider sending me a PM with the link.

  • Punctuation in Illustrator CS6 enters to the left of text

    I'm having a problem in illustrator where if the punctuation is at the end of a line, it jumps to the left of the text instead of sitting at the end of the sentence.
    For example my sentence will show like this:
    !The cat sat on the mat
    I managed to fix this problem in photoshop by changing the text engine to East Asian, but this option is not available in illustrator.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    It may be worth looking at this:
    The following is a general list of things you may try when the issue is not in a specific file (you may have tried/done some of them already); 1) and 2) are the easy ones for temporary strangenesses, and 3) and 4) are specifically aimed at possibly corrupt preferences); 5) is a list in itself, and 6) is the last resort.
    1) Close down Illy and open again;
    2) Restart the computer (you may do that up to 3 times);
    3) Close down Illy and press Ctrl+Alt+Shift/Cmd+Option+Shift during startup (easy but irreversible);
    4) Move the folder (follow the link with that name) with Illy closed (more tedious but also more thorough and reversible);
    5) Look through and try out the relevant among the Other options (follow the link with that name, Item 7) is a list of usual suspects among other applications that may disturb and confuse Illy, Item 15) applies to CC, CS6, and maybe CS5);
    Even more seriously, you may:
    6) Uninstall, run the Cleaner Tool (if you have CS3/CS4/CS5/CS6/CC), and reinstall.

  • I have owned Illustrator CS6 for years now, but all of a sudden it says my trial period will expire.  What is going on?  I do not want to lose my program in 25 days over something I had no part of.

    What is the price to upgrade to the new CC version?  I can't get any information on anything from Adobe.  I am so annoyed with their website, I really have lost interest.  I don't use the cloud, and only want to use 1 or 2 of their products.  The last product I bought, has now been taken over, and says my TRIAL will expire, when I have owned it for years.  It seems like the options are, pay monthly for everything, or get nothing. I'm not sure if this is designed for students, who can use everything, which is a really cool option, but not what I want. 
    I've always been a die hard Illustrator fan, but I have not been able to use other ADOBE products.  I am, or was, really looking forward to the new CC version. 

    There is no CC without the cloud and that is that. For you activation issue rtefer to this:

  • Slow performance pages when accessing for first time

    Hi Oracle developers,
    Hope this is the right place to ask my question regarding Fusion Applications performance.
    I'm dealing with a hard issue in our Fusion Applications 11.1.7 'test' environment for educational purposes. The thing is that whenever a page is accessed the first time (after a restart) it takes a very long time for the page to appear on the screen.
    When it has been accessed before the page is rendered almost instantly. I suspect this has to with caching/compilation of the pages.
    I already looked at article (Doc ID 1518515.1) and the settings were already set as is described in the solution part of the note.
    My question:
    Is there a fix for this?
    Is there a way to precompile all Fusion Applications JSP pages after a restart.
    Hope you can help me out with this!
    Kind regards,

    Hi Charif,
    we are looking into ways to speed this up, but at the moment there is nothing you can do to avoid this delay.  I know this sounds vague, but I cannot discuss future potential features here.
