I installed the new cc trial: it doesn't recognise the .ai files from the File/ 'open' option nor if I try to open it from the file itsself
from the file:
from the ID program file/open
so i installed the CS6 trial too, and its the same issue
also when I try to open it from the .exe it doesnt work:
I tried different .ai files, they are templates from the internet for learning purpose like this for example: Exclusive vectors by Freepik order by new
What can I do?
There is no malfunction. InDesign does not open Illustrator (.ai) files. You can only Place (File > Place) Illustrator files in an existing InDesign file (.indd). To open Illustrator files, you need Illustrator.
And if the AI files were saved with PDF Compatibility Enabled because you are really placing the PDF portion of the file.
