Hi guys,

 

I got an EPS file from somebody and I want to open it in illustrator. However, it says that its an unkown format etc., this is probably because the name of the file starts with an underscore, but if I change the name and try it again I get the same result. What to do?

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Greetings, Max

Are you sure it's not a dot-underscore ( ._ )?

 

That would be a normally invisible file from a Mac. Usually the original file is next to it. If that's missing, hopefully it was just moved somewhere else.

Can you File > Place the file?

 

And if that doesn't work, don't hesitate and upload it to Dropbox or the like so that we might try the file.
