Palettes Splitting

Palettes Splitting

Palettes Splitting

We're running CS3 on a Mac 10.4.11. This is a recurring problem, but restarting Illustrator fixes it. Then, it works for a day or so, but it always comes back.

What's going on? Is there a solution?


RE: Palettes Splitting

More information:
My tool palettes in AI3 come apart. That is- the guts can move but the outside frame doesn't. Then, the tools don't work, until I click and drag the frame back in the opposite direction. The frame doesn't move, but when I let off of the mouse, the guts of the palette are close to the starting point depending on how close I was to the original move. Is this a bug everyone knows about but me? It has happened in other versions and on other computers.  

RE: Palettes Splitting

...never experienced this myself, it's very odd indeed...

...have you tried the usual trashing of the illustrator settings folder Users > ~username > Library > Preferences > Adobe Illustrator CS Settings?

sometimes this can fix odd things happening with illustrator...
