Adobe Illustrator CS2 crashes on an Intel Mac Pro running Mac OS 10.4.8 when a designer tries to use a tool on the pathfinder palette. This only happens when a circular path is involved. For example you want to Unite a round/circular path and a square path. Yo highlight both paths and select Unite from the Pathfinder palette. The program will crash.
- Launch Illustrator CS2
- Close the Appearance Palette
- Quit Illustrator
- Restart Illustrator
You can then reopen the Appearance palette and use the pathfinder tool without trouble.
