Hello @ipek24109652vebg,

 

Sorry to hear about the trouble you are facing. I assume you want to open SVG files in the Graphtec Cutter application by default. If yes, kindly follow these steps:

On your Mac, select a file, then choose File > Get Info or press Command-I.

get_info_command.jpgget_info_box.jpg

You can change the Open with Program here to your preferred program (Graphtec Cutter) for handling the file type (SVG) and click on Change All. Let us know if it helps.

 

Looking forward to hearing from you.

 

Thanks,
Anubhav

what happens when you try to open the file in Graphtec?
If you create it on one comp and use it on another one, so yes, the first system opens your file in the nearest suitable soft which is AI. But what about the second one? Can you open your SVG file correctly in Graphtec?
If yes, set the system preferences as @Anubhav Majumder suggests.
