More details...! How was the specific file produced? Does it open in Acrobat/ Adobe Reader or otehr vector-enabled apps? What fonts or elements does it use?
I created the file in Illustrator CS5 and saved it as an .ai file.
It does not open in Acrobat or Reader... not sure what other programs you think I should try?
It's basically a bunch of lines and some text... the text is a Font that we use here at the MTO (FHWA)
This is the first time I've ever had this problem.
The weird thing is if I try to open the file in Illustrator by clicking "File", then "Open..." and then highlight the file in the "Open Dialog Window", I can see a preview of the file. But then when I finally click "open" in the dialog window, I get that error message?
Can you open a new Illustrator document window and File/Place the image as a link and then embed the image to get the objects back? You may have to release clipping masks also.
Have you ever had the trial version of Suitcase Fusion on your computer?
Perhaps the font has become corrupt and needs to be reinstalled or you install a more recent font and it is conflicting with the file.
You have not told us anything about your set u and updates an software and third party plugins etc.
Tell us more a lot more.
Thanks. I tried this and I still get the same message
Unfortunately I couldn't wait to have this problem solved so I recreated the file - thanks
