Hi. I'm trying to convert a .svg file to a .ai file so I can open it in AE.
Currently I click File > Save As > Save on your computer. I then make sure the file type is .ai and hit export. However, when I export, it says 'Illustrator tried but could not export the file.
The .svg file is of a graph that I made in Google Sheets.
I am following this tutorial.
Exactly what is in the file? Can you show it?
What do you mean by export? You can only save (as) .ai, which is not a problem with your file.
Where do you save it?
Oh sorry Ton - I meant save. I save it to my SSD.
This SSD is the local harddisk?
No - it's an extrenal drive. Do I need to save it to the local hard disk?
External drives can cause issues. Try the internal drive.
That works! Thank you so much
