    I received a file today which was generated on a Mac version of Illustrator. For whatever reason my Windows Illustrator CS2 would not open it although it has always been my understanding that it would. I next turned to Flexi and it opened it as a bitmap. Next I turned to CorelDRAW X3 and it opened in full glowing 100% vectors.

    I was impressed.

    A TIP to help solve these issues.

    If anyone has Adobe Acrobat 6 or above
    you can right click on most image [ ie; AI, EPS, CDR, etc ] file types and then
    click on convert to PDF which should then be importable to most image vector programs without incident . . .

    Fred, that is odd. The Mac and PC CS2 files are not platform specific. Must be some anomaly. The only issues between the 2 are ps fonts.

    Ditto on what the Doc said. I design most of my work in Illustrator on a Mac, and send to My PC for ripping and sometimes additional editing, and I've never had a problem, even with different versions of Illustrator. I have CS on the MAC and CS2 on the the PC. Hmmmm?
