Let me first start by saying that I am a Mac, using 10.4.
Using Adobe Illustrator 10, I am experiencing a problem of saving a files the way I would like to.
My program keeps turning my Adobe Illustrator files in to Adobe Arobate Reader PDF's and in turn,
I can't use them any more as an Illustrator file. There are not "Return to Illustrator" choices.
When I go to save, my first choice, I choose Adobe Illustrator, and click OK. The next window that
pops up is the choices of PDF, which I Uncheck, because I do not want a PDF file.
It then shows up on my Desktop file as an Adobe Illustrator. The next time I go back, it has turned
into a PDF file and I can't turn it back into an Illustrator file. Any help out there?
Illustrator files and PDF's are basically the same thing but it sounds like your file associations may be confused. Highlight one of the Illy files then go to File>Get Info>Open With. Choose Illustrator then choose Change all. That should fix it up for you.
That worked. You can believe how long I have been trying to get this
info from Adobe.
It amazes me how its users seem to be smarter than there so called
staff of professionals
I think it's simply because we actually use the products rather than read from a script. Glad that worked for you.
