Help with downloaded files

Post by Terry Lynn »

I downloaded a file from iStock that is a jpg and an Ai file. I tried to convert it to a svg in Inkscape but my Sure Cuts A Lot still won't load it. It says there is no vector file associated with it. Can anyone help me? I have been trying for over 6 hours now.

Terry, did you try tracing the jpg file in Inkscape or scal?

When you tried to convert the AI file did you do a save as an svg in ink save not an .ai file?

What version of SCAL are you using since I can open and save as any AI file and then open in eCAL/scal3.

What software are you referencing? What version did you install? PC or Mac? And finally, can you post a screenshot of what you're seeing?
