Exporting Ai

Hey guys,

I have to create quite simple vector art to export as a version 8 Ai to be imported into Enroute (www.enroute3.com) and then used to cut vinyl etc.

My problem is the ai's out of CDX4 don't import properly... if I open them with Illo and save them as a version 8 from there they work OK.

Has anybody had any experience with this and if so a solution would be great.  BTW I only have Illo on my machine to do exactly as I have described above, basically an expensive conversion utility :(

PDF files out of Draw don't work either

TIA

Chris
