    I'm working with a high quality logo that was originally designed in AI. I'm using AI CS6. It looks perfect in AI. However, when I pull it into Flexi, it's horrid. I was told this was a filter issue, that Flexi doesn't support the newest version of AI. Any ideas how to save this file in AI so that Flexi will read it appropriately?:smile:

    Everything I drop in Flexi looks weird. It all prints great though.

    What do you need to do to it within Flexi?
    If it is print ready and does not need to have a contour cut or anything added just drop it in the program manager instead of the main Flexi app.

    I'd do it all in Illustrator - export out as a pdf, eps or flattened tiff & let Flexi handle only the printing (directly in the Program Manager).
    Seems to work well for me here.

    Me to, if you have both AI and Flexi Pro, (as I do), hands down I would rather do all my wrap designing in AI (and PS), and only use Flexi for printing.


    Those who don't have AI and ONLY have Flexi are forced to do any design work in Flexi, but in my opinion, AI is far better for design work...

    What means "looks horrid"? The screen appearance of paths is not as nice in Flexi as in Illustrator, but that doesn't affect the logo data itself. If having problems, try to use PDF.

    "Looks horrid"

    Well, the Chevy bowtie looks amazing in AI and in Flexi, half of it missing and the other half shows a big brown circle in it! Yuck!
