jimiyo is trying to help me out. I downloaded the free vector set at Vector Freebie from jimiyo: Animals|GoMediaZine
& it will not open in CorelDraw X3 or Xara X. I have downloaded another free vector set & it opened just fine. I don't know if it is because of the way they set the file up or what, but I would really love to have these designs if anyone could lend me a hand.
Thanks,
Ray

I gave it a shot, opened fine in Illy CS2, but no go for Corel. I tried resaving it into a few different EPS formats and still had issues. Copying the vectors into a new file and saving it seems to work fine, however it does not have the gomedia blurb on it (might be part of the issue).

Thanks Joe,
I was thinking that would work by copying & saving in a new file, but I did not have a program to do that with. I sent you a pm.
Thanks,
Ray

Hi Ray, I also, have had trouble with a freebie download from this site. Trying to open in X3, no go. I've tried many different fixes none worked. I posted a similar question a few days ago.

Also try saving as a pdf file and then opening up in Corel or Illustrator. I have had issues where a Illustrator and eps file wouldnt open but saved as pdf and worked fine.

Not to sound dense, how do you save an .eps file created with AI as a .pdf file, when I can't open the file. I'm using X3 and XP. Thanks, Mike

good question, i run on MAC OS so I usually just rename the file so if its draw.eps simply rename it too draw.pdf it should give you an option to keep the new file format and say yes.

The EPS file won't open with X4 or Inkscape.

If Illustrator gives you the option of saving in SVG, you might try that.
