Adobe Illustrator – Out of Memory Error!

Asked By 60 points N/A Posted on -

Hello TechyV buddies!

I am having some issue on Adobe illustrator CS5.1. I am using this on my brand bew mac Book Pro 64 bit 2.8 Ghz with Intel Core i7 processor and 8G of RAM. I always get this error:

"cannot move object, out of memory"

This happens when I try to edit a vector file. The Al file is too small to occupy the 2.8G RAM of my laptop. I wonder why it keeps on telling that I don’t have enough memory to perform the action. I am trying to configure this issue and analyzing that this might be a bug or a virus brought about by the installation of the Adobe Illustrator. Can anyone help me solve this issue? I really don’t know if this is a bug or a virus or another incompatibility problem with Adobe Illustrator. I can do the action using X11 window but bot here in Adobe illustrator. I have any idea please let me know I really need help here guys.

Any help will be highly appreciated. Thank you!

Adobe Illustrator – Out of Memory Error!


Hello Catlin,

The error you are getting is caused by a bug in the Adobe Illustrator software. It is not caused with the computer. The bug could possibly be in the printer drivers, and therefore you will need to resolve it as follows:

You will need to set a PostScript printer driver as the default printer. The following procedure will guide you through that process:

  • Go to the Finder and then select Go, and then Applications.
  • After that open the utilities folder, and then double-click the Printer Setup Utility, or you can choose the Print Center.
  • In case there a PostScript already listed, you will have to click on Add Printer, and then go to a PostScript printer and then click Add.
  • You will then choose a PostScript printer and then choose printers, and then make it default.

Hope this helps.
