    Illustrator icon preview

    BellyBuckle

      Hi all.

       

      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?

       

      thanks!
