Illustrator CS4 - “Can't save illustration.” Error
While working on a website mockup I ran into a rather worrisome error - "Can't save illustration."
I can export as .png, .jpg but cannot "Save" or "Save As" regardless of the file type.
The particular document/file contains 1 graphic made in Photoshop and a few downloaded vectors, but removing those particular items does not seem to help.
I read that the error can be caused by fonts so I changed all fonts to Arial(standard system font), and even tried changing type to outlines.. again, nothing helped.
I've also tried copy/pasting everything to a new document to no avail.
All content is on single layer, if it matters.
My system(osx 10.8.5) is running on little available memory, but even removing what I would assume to be the more taxing files doesn't help - the "Can't save illustration." error persists. Needless to say, I'm very worried.
Any thoughts/ideas on how to remedy this problem?
Illustrator version 14.0.0
Followed steps, Verify Disk resulted in a green OK, repaired permissions.
Illustrator save problem persists.
Problem persists.Additionally, tried printing to postscript file/pdf and received an error stating there was not enough memory, or object too complex. I tried reducing the object and artboard to 1/4 it's original size, problem persists.
6 updates, installing now. I'll update when they're complete.
Illustrator is locked up - won't open either via Applications or by trying to open an .ai file.
