Just got a new iMac with Snow Leopard and the CS4 upgrade.
My question: how can I consistently create Ilustrator files with a viewable thumbnail icon?
I opened one of my old Illustrator CS1 documents, then resaved it to my desktop and miraculously, it showed me the thumbnail icon with a complete view of the documents contents. So I thought: cool! Then I tried it again with another file and it only shows the Illustrator icon, no viewable thumbnail. Is there a particular way of saving the file in order to consistently show a thumbnail preview icon?
Files must be saved with PDF compatibility, as effectively the PDF part is what Finder uses to generate previews.
