Hi Guys

 

I'm having a bit of problem with my CS6 Illustrator and it started in illustrator CS5, I can create an eps file within Illustrator save it as CS6, but when i go to open it again i get an error " Can't open the illustration. The illustration exceeds an implementation limit. systemdict ŒØ_ˇ" (this can sometimes be varied with lots of ˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇ) . I get an option to click ok and when i do i get a blank artboard with nothing on it.

 

I can see the artwork preview in the finder window when i select the eps file, I can open it in photoshop, convert it in preivew and if i place the file back into illustrator i can see the artwork and click embed to edit it.

 

My question is this, is there anything i can do to get rid of the error message. all the work arounds are driving me daft.

 

many thanks in advance

 

Illustrator CS6

Mac OSX 10.7.4

Processor 3.2 Ghz Intel Core i3

Memory 10gb 1067 Mhz DDR3
