I'll admit that I'm self taught on this program, and there is a LOT I don't know about it, however I have been using it professionally for years with no problem. This only seems to happen in CS2, and only when I am working on something quite detailed with many, many paths and anchor points. That being said, my images ar still only a couple megs?? Basically what happens is, when I try to resize or rotate anything, the program goes haywire - stuff disappears, graphincs get all glitchy, program slows down, etc. I have 2 gigs of ram and do a lot of Photoshop work (CS2 as well) with images up to a couple hundred megs in size with no problems, but Illustrator can't hande a 2 meg file?? I'v never seen this happen in all my years using the program until this version... Anyone have any idea what the problem is?
