    I don't know why it s doing this for you but you could explain it in moire detail and tell us about your system as well.

    But in the meantime do it on the paste board and drag it onto the document

    I'm also having a similar problem. I just got Illustrator CS2, I have installed it on a 24" Intel iMac running Tiger 10.4.8. On my very first project I tried to use the shape mode "Unite" button in pathfinder. As soon as I try using it Illustrator just shuts down. I have v12.0.1, would really like to know if I can do something to fix this since I use pathfinder all the time. Thanks in advance. :-)

    This is a known problem and discussed including solutions at several places on this forum.
    Open Illustrator. Close the Appearance palette. Quit Illustrator. Open again, now without the Appearance palette showing. You will now be able to use the Pathfinder again and the Appearance palette. Just be careful when you quit Illustrator not to have the Appearance palette showing.

    dump the Apperance palette and restart illustrator

    strange but true

    Not dump, just close it, quit Illustrator and then reopen and next time you close Illustrator see to it that Appearance palette is not shown.
