Hello, I have been working on a project in Illustrator now for a while. I am fairly new to Adobe platforms. My project, previously saved as an ai file, now only shows up as an aic file. I'm not entirely sure how aic works, but is there any way I can get this back to an ai file so I can edit it?
Do a Save As and save it on your desktop (or another local place on your computer.)
I'm pretty sure aic is not an Illustrator format, and I'd suspect the extension was changed manually, perhaps inadvertently. Rename (a copy of) the file and leave the 'c' off the extension, then try to open it.
aic is the extension for an Adobe Illustrator Cloud document.
