  • Can’t import illustrator files

    Every illustrator file I try to import it says “no usable vector paths”

    Hi James,

    Make sure when you save your Illustrator file that “Use Compression” is not checked.

    If you’re still having problems after that try saving it as Illustrator 8 file. Or CS2. I always save mine as a CS2 file and haven’t had any problems.

    Hope this helps.
