Hi!

I have been using XD on a Mac and had no problems opening up illustrator files, which was super useful. 

Now I have switched to a Windows 10 machine, and suddenly I am not able to open any of the .ai files in XD. Is there a workaround for this?

Thank you!

Sorry for the delay in response. Would mind trying importing AI file in XD and let us know if that works. If it doesn't please share a screenshot of the error you get.

Hi, thank you for the answer. 

 

However, I don't have Illustrator so I cant work around with the provided suggestion. 
Is it the case that it does not work on PC at all, as when I was on a mac I had no problems importing the .ai in XD?

Thanks, 
J

Hi Rishabh, 

 

importing rather then opening the .ai files worked! 

 

That is great, thank you!

Best, 

J
