Does any have an idea why when I download free Illustrator files from the Exchange and open several they open as blank white pages?
I have the latest version of Illustrator CS5. This has happened with other stuff but I'm obviously a Illustrator user not an intimate.
Any help is appreciated.
Sounds like what you wanted were swatches, graphic styles, brushes or symbols. These items are stored in the panel for those items in the file. Often there will be nothing visible but if you open the file as a library from another file, the items will be available for use.
I had to try a couple of things but that did the trick!,
