I want to import and export *.ai file in my application, not in plug-in.
Is there any way to do this?
I already have searched in this forum, but it seems there is no way to do this without plug-in.
I also heard *.ai file is not a open format.
Then, does it need to make partnership with Abobe Illustrator to support *.ai file compatibility in my application?
Illustrator format file is not an open format file.
Adobe provides tools with which you could improve / enhance the functionality of Adobe Illustrator.
This could be done using scripts, plugins (SDK) or HTML extensions.
A third party application could not read natively Illustrator file.
But what you could do is to create a plugin that export illustrator file in a pivot format your application could read.
About partnership, I do not know, but I do not think so!
