    Ai file won't import into Catalyst

    Ferguda123

      I am trying to open my first AI project in Flash Catalyst but it is not being friendly to me (or I to it evidently)

      I am getting the following error message when trying to open the Ai from Catalyst...

       

      "The design file you have selected has too many objects to import to Adobe Flash Catalyst"

      It then tells me I should flatten some layers.

       

      I can't see this being the case because I only have 25 total layers comprising of:

      2 simple rectangle paths w/gradient

      2 arrow symbols

      2 Jpegs

      19 text layers

       

       

       

       

       

      I'm on a running Snow leopard on a Mac Pro.

          From what you are describing, you should be able to import the file. Would it be possible for you to post the Illustrator file so we could take a look and see what is going on?

            I have since stripped the project down to the culprit.  It was evidently a style that was placed on the text layers.  I recreated all the text layers as basic text with no stroke or style and it imported fine.  I would post the project but I was too eager to delete it from my existence once I found the answer.  Thanks for the response.

              @Ferguda123:

               

              THANK YOU for your post. Without it, I would have wasted so much time trying to figure out what to fix based on such a vague "too many objects" error as I described in this thread:
