Two Problems --
Illustrator file won't open -- I get an error message that the file name is too long. But even when I change the file name to something shorter, it won't open.
I have the same file saved as a PDF -- it opens in Acrobat, no problem. If I could open it in Illustrator, my problem would be solved. But when I try to open it in Illustrator, I get an error message "File not found." Well, the file is clearly there!
I'm toast with this client if I can't open this file. Thanks!
Regarding the "file name too long" error: Where do you store that file?
If the path to it is too long as well (e.g. due to long folder names), you will also get that error.
Thanks. It's Windows. The folder names were kind of long -- so I changed all of them in the path. Still the same results. just seems so wierd -- I can open the PDF in Acrobat -- but when I try to open the PDF in Illustrator, it says "File not found..."
Dang... Putting them simply in your drive's main location (where the folders like Program Files are lying) also doesn't work, I suppose? 😞
That did work! Thank you!
Ohh, these are great news 🙂 Happy to hear that it worked!
