I updated the ai file to version 9. Can go up to cs3 if you want. What format do you want it in? Did you want it converted to a bitmap (photo)? which program do you want to use your ai file in? I'll convert it for you.

Thanks Burr.

I tried to read the updated.ai file into Inkscape and Corel Paint Shop Pro X. It did not give me any errors, but nothing appeared after opening it. I will continue to play around with the settings maybe.

Thanks again!

That would be a version miss-match. For instance, if you try to read it into moi, it will be blank also, no error.

Trying to figure out version for version etc is your task. Your corel is an old package, probably not your best bet. Inkscape is a whole other animal.

Are you on Linux or just that it's free?

Inkscape strives for svg. Try to open this in inkscape.

If the svg file works for you, then you may want to go to the inkscape site and read up on there ai convertor. Since they want to do svg and adobe handles it differently (by keeping the ai and svg seperatly in binary) then there is a process to make your inkscape compatible with other packages.

Hope this helps!

Here is a link from the inkscape wiki. The program you want is called "uniconvertor". It imports ai files up to version 9 and exports the ai as version 5, which inkscape can then deal with.

Again, scroll to the "existing conversion tools" and look for "Uniconvertor"

[EDIT] But then again, Inkscape wants to be an svg program so use this tool to import your moi file then convert it to svg.
