    Here's what I am doing and trying to acomplish: I scanned line art into Illustrator and cleaned it up. What I want to do is bring this art into SignMate v5.8 and send it to my cutter. Could someone guide me as to what I need to save the file as and how I get it into SignMate? I appreciate all the help I receive from this group. Thank you, Dave

    You're unclear as to whether or not you have traced the scanned line art. This must be done and then delete the scan in Illustrator. Once deleted, save the vector outlines as either EPS or AI and manually select to save back to version 3. SignMate 5.8 will not open or import versions later than version 3.

    Have you considered just scanning directly into SignMate and doing your tracing there?
