Hi

 

I purchaced #114122981 and #114123812 years ago for a project that went on standby. I am ready to start it now but no longer have illustrator, I'm now on affinity designer on my ipad. This file says its eps and opens as an embedded document in affinity designer. When I double click this and go into the layers panel, it shows two groups, there is no background later to turn off so I'm not sure what to do with these files, I need a translucent background and not a grey chequerboard one.

Hi robing65081599, The files can be opened in Illustrator and the checkered background can be removed. I know you don't have Illustrator currently but that is the best way to open the file and get what you want from it. You could download a trial version of Illustrator and remove the background.
