sorry me again_cad & illus

Recommended Posts

hi guys ive just recently imported a drawing from autoCAD into adobe illustrator, all the lines in autoCAD are poly lines (which means the shapes are one continues line), now usually this means there a single path in illustrator also(and they fill with colors etc), but for some reason when i place this file in illustrator the polylines are broken up into thier segments, and thus cant be filled with color.


does anyone know a solution


cheers nmx


ive tried saving the cad drawing with the 'cad 2000 lite option but still to no avail im using AutoCAD 2005

It sounds more like an Illustrator problem than an AutoCAD problem. Have you checked within an Adobe Illustrator forum for a possible answer?

it would be a difference between illustrator and autocad, illustrator is vector based, paths are all vecotrs, learn the pen tool.
