I am new at all of this so please bear with my novice question. I have a need to create graphic files that are in ".AI" format. Can I do this in InDesign? I just started using a trial version of InDesign and when I do "save as" I do not get an option to save as an AI file. HELP! The people I need to submit this to specify "Vector art" in .AI format.
No, you must create AI files in Adobe Illustrator. InDesign cannot create or save as AI files.
You create AI files in Illustrator.
