I have exported a file from Adobe Illustrator as
.dxf file in several ways - basically trying all the combinations of the export settings such as the version of the dxf file, or whether to modify pathes in order to preserve looks, etc. In every way, a dxf file is created, which I can view with QCAD. But Inkscape tells me this when I try to open the file:
1 ABSCHNITT der POLYLINIE aufgetaucht und ignoriert. Bitte versuchen Sie diese mit QCad in ein Version 13 Format zu konvertieren.
1 SECTION of the POLYLINE appeared and ignored. Please try converting them with QCad in a Version 13 Format.
(sometimes it said more than one)
I proceeded to try exactly that, but still, Inkscape gives me the same message. I also tried using an online converter, and taking various filetypes as intermediate steps, but that didn't work out either - always resulting in this same error message.
I have also tried creating a new file (and exporting that as path and directly) - as simple as it gets - and the same problem is still happening. However, though it is happening with most of my dxf files, some files with only in them pathes work.
How can I export or convert my Adobe Illustrator
.ai file to a
.dxf file which Inkscape can read?
(The reason why I want this, is because I am actually trying to figure out why a very different application does not work, and since I stumbled upon this issue, I think they may or may not be connected)
I am using illustrator CS6 Version 16.0.0 (64-bit) and Inkscape 0.91 The problematic files are not only problematic on one machine, but I have only tried on win10 so far.
The font does not seem to be the problem. The example file uses Myriad Pro, but it also happens with Arial.
