How to deal with initializing plug-in settings
The following is a useful workaround for a symptom of initialization of plug-in settings when starting Adobe Illustrator (AI).
A possible cause is the enhanced security of macOS. This may have prevented writing to files related to the operation of our plug-ins.
When it occures, you can go and check by following :
Apple Mark > System Preference > Security & Privacy > Privacy Tab > Files and Folders > Adobe Illustrator 20** >
Check the "Documents folder" checkbox. After enabling the plug-in, please restart your PC and check the plug-in operation again.
