Mac Illustrator-->PC Corel??

Post by Alberic » Thu, 30 Mar 1995 04:00:00

Greetings all;
Does anybody know of a translator program that will take output
from the Mac version of Illustrator 5.5 and convert it to something
that can be sent over the net, and then read by a PC running
CorelDraw 5?  We're going for direct machine to machine hookups, so
it doesn't really need to be net-able, but It definitely needs
to preserve the scale and line weights.
(My output service is an hour away through DC traffic...)

Any help would be deeply appreciated.

Mac Illustrator-->PC Corel??

Hi Brian,

Corel will read .AI files directly--you have to File|Import them, not
File|Open them. They should then even be able to be edited; not just come
across as one single graphic item.

Corel actually can read and write graphics in about a kajillion formats.



1. Illustrator (mac) -> Corel Draw (pc)

What's the best way to do this conversion? I have a client asking for
files (preferably editable) that she can use with Corel Draw. I have sent
her eps's, Illustrator 3 format, saved with an ibm pc preview, but the
client says she can't read them. Actually, she also says that they look
"poorly scanned." Sounds like she *can* read them, but *can't* edit them.

What should I give her/tell her? Does CDR have a way to traslate eps's
that our client does not know about? Do I need to save in an Illustrator
88 or 1.1 format instead?

Thanks for any help...
