    So I finished downloading Lion a couple days ago - now almost every design I make in Illustrator CS5 suddenly won't save or save as - that button gets grayed out.

    Please, I'm begging you all, please help!

    Found this:

    "Illustrator CS5 and CS5.1

    Problem: The option to save or export is disabled from Save As or Export dialog window when the desktop is set as the save location.

    Solution: None stated."

    Looks like there is info out there and its a known issue but no solution...

    I am running Lion 10.7 (fresh install, software up to date)
    Illustrator CS5.1 ver. 15.1.0 (CS5.5)
    I just made a quick illustrator file and it saved just fine, even if the desktop is the save location.
    Are you talking about files created while using SL and now is causing issues in Lion? Or any .ai file?
