When I export to EPS, the resulting document contains two layers for each text element - one for the fill, and another for the outline. Though the color of the text outline is set to invisible in CorelDRAW, it appears in AI, for example, as a fine line, and the two overlapping layers can be edited (as text) separately.
I was hoping to collaborate with some AI users, but this makes the documents difficult to exchange (and exporting to AI format has even more problems).
Any ideas how to produce a more reliable EPS (or AI) export?
Any advice is appreciated.
EPS is an old format, Adobe left it more than twenty years ago and replaced by PDF.
So, the best way to send a file to Illustrator is Publish as PDF. Remember to choose compatibility with Acrobat 8.0 or higher
Good to know. I thought PDF documents could only be edited in Acrobat Pro and, consequently, it's just about the only format I didn't try.
On the bright side, this is the best export yet, but there's still one problem: Paragraph text blocks are being broken up. At a minimum, every line of text in a paragraph text box becomes a separate text object. Furthermore, there are random breaks in those lines so that, for example, "Hello World" becomes "H" and "ello World." It's not noticeable until you try to edit it. Then, it's a bit of a mess.
Still, this is good progress. Thank you!
