    Just trying to use this forum to get answers, to some probelms that have been cropping up lately. Sorry if I posted this more than once but no one has given me a good answer here yet. Just there cheesy comments.

    your question is vague. when you select the jpeg and the "object" then "Live trace" and "tracing options".....make sure it does NOT say "greyscale"....play with the options to get what you want.
    If you are a signmaker....you can use flexi's trace (the color trace is good)....but for node editing, Signlab is about 100 times faster.
    Life is too short to node edit in ADobe, Corel or Flexi...if you don't have Signlab then go for Flexi's trace...you can control how many colours etc. quite easily and rip/print without switching programs.

    If you want send me the file, I will look at it for you, I have done quite a bit of "node editing" in illy, if I see the vector file I might have some input for you, also, I do use Versworks so I would be able to dump it in there & tell also,
    pm me for my email if you want.
