Windows 8. Adobe Illustrator CS6

 

I create an illustration and saved it as an .ai file.  Now that I'm ready, I want to save it as an EPS file, but a window pops up saying "Can't save the illustration. Can't print the illustration." I tried saving it under older formats, doesn't work.  Help!

    Could be anything from Win 8 specific issues to the usual flattening problems with EPS. nobody can say without seeing your artwork...

    I don't think it is a Win8 issue per se. I export to EPS from both CS5.1 and CS6 on Windows 8 64-bit. It may well be a user account issue or the CS6 installation itself.

     

    Try creating a new user account on the Win 8 computer and try it. Only takes a few minutes with the reboot.
