Hi, I have been opening regularly files coming from a fashion design CAD regularly(to Illustrator) but since last week I got a message asking for encoding, caracters and missing fonts, all I got when I open the file is numbers and letters. I have try on PC, Mac, reinstall Illustrator and all sort of options, but nothing.

Please could someone help.

Thanks

If it worked in previous versions, you can try to install CC 2019.

You can have multiple Illustrator versions installed.

If you don't have the problem in CC 2019, report it here:

https://illustrator.uservoice.com

If that also does not work, check the settings in the app that creates the dxf

are you exporting from Gerber? did you accidentally changed the export format? If we don't use the right dxf format illustrator thinks it's a text file. Sorry I don't remember the right format, maybe if I see the options I will remember.

what are your export option? I thinks it's AAMA, you have to export each piece not the whole pattern.
