Just save your Illustrator with compatible pdf, and place that in Indesign.
better using pdf than eps?
thought is was so easy, copying it. doing it with lots of others logos I´ve made. but suddenly it doesn`t work.
but`ll try pdf if that is as good, you mean
pdf keeps transparenties=newscool :=)
BTW no need to save a sepparate pdf, just save your illustrator with compatible pdf
how? not save as pdf, as a new file? sorry boring you with old-school-
questions. consider me a freshman(girl).
thanks a lot.
so the future says pdf, and not eps... i`ll remember
just managed. so then, i save it as an ai-file, and it stays that, but works as an pdf, right?
thanks - wish you were my college
Copyed it into indesign
You should NOT copy>paste an Illustrator file into Indesign. You need to go to Indesign and use file>place.
Many problems happen when copying and pasting into indesign.
okay - but how then, make sure the white background isn`t there?
that is my big problem, and the reason i copy - pase illustrator-objects into indd.
What white background?
You have an example?
just that I want invisible background. On a logo, for ex. so that I can place it on a colored background in indd. if i place it, i get white background. but when i copy/paste i get an invisible background. understand?
think i got it. save it as an ai-file instead of eps, and choose the compatible pdf, and then place it. that worked. perfect!
so, to clients, is it okay to send logos as ai-files, you recommend?
thanxs a lot
yes, same here. so let me then forget about eps, and start use ai-files.
hope clients like that
Wait one minute...
If you save as .ai file and the client doesn't have Adobe Illustrator, then the file will not open when the client clicks on it. He/she will not be able to view it. Unless they have InDesign, Acrobat, Photoshop, and the like, they can't bring it in to those programs to view.
Then, in the case of none of the above programs being available to the client, save as pdf so the client can view the file with Adobe Reader.
An AI file saved with PDF Compatibility enabled will open in either Reader or Acrobat Pro with no problems
You are correct sir! My mistake, not thinking clearly for some reason and had old info rattling around I didn't check on first.
