Designer crashing when opening a large Illustrator .ai file

Recommended Posts



Just purchased Designer from the Mac App Store.  I'm trying to open a large 45MB .ai file that is local on my hard drive and the app crashes.  Tried moving the file to both the cloud and external storage and still I get a crash.


I'm using a MBP 15" 2016 with touchbar running 10.12.6


Please advise.  Thank,

Hey rjderam,


It seems to open fine for me on both the beta and MAS versions of the app. I'll keep poking it and if I get a crash report I can pass it to dev. If I find out what is causing it once it crashes I'll get back to you.

Does it crash for you the second it loads or are you doing a certain operation when it crashes?
