    I’m getting an error message that reads:
    “No usable vector paths in this file.” which I would normally understand, but not for this one. I have about 60 paths in this AI file. Using certain combinations of paths works fine, others don’t. For example, using paths 1-10 imports fine, but adding path 11 or 12 gives the error. But using path 7-12 imports fine. So it doesn’t seem to be that paths 11 or 12 are broken, but that Invig can’t combine them with certain other paths. Any ideas on what might be happening here? Thanks.

    Hi Curtis.

    Would you mind sending me your .ai file? I’d be happy to take a look.

    I’d like to see if this is a bug.

    After looking at the file, it looks like the use of gradients in Illustrator may be the problem.

    When creating Illustrator files that you’d like to import into the Invigorator, try not
    to use gradients. Use flat colors only.

    Doing so will give you the best odds for a smooth import process.
