Question about Adobe Illustrator 9.0 (16001028) for Mac

2 Answers

Saving Mac question. When I save an Adobe Illlustrator 9.0.1 drawing as a AI 9.0.1 document it saves it as a PDF file which means I can't go back in and work on it. I'm running Tiger and open AI in classic. Thanks, Kim

Re: Saving

I would have to try to recreate this problem on a mac at work that still has classic on it, but the short answer/question I have is, have you tried saving it as a .eps file instead of an AI file?

Illustrator File Damaged And Could Not Be Repaired

I would recommend trying to save the file in various formats to see if you have any better luck. A few good alternate formats would be eps and pdf (located under File>Save as in Illustrator). Also, make sure that the files have the correct extention typed after their names (for example, an illustrator file would have .ai after it, a pdf file would end in .pdf, etc). It sounds pretty basic, but not having the correct extention can sometimes damage a file.I had read about it here:
There are a few resources out there that can help with repairing corrupt files- I'm listing these at the end of the email in case you want to look into this option.
You may also want to contact Adobe Technical Support to determine why your files are becoming damaged after saving them.

Correct the offending command
1.Launch Illustrator.
2.Using File > Open, hold down Command + Ctrl + Alt + Shift (Windows), and click Open. Double click the file to open. You want the full Open dialog.
3.Your file will be blank. Close the file without saving or altering.
4.Go back to your directory. You will now have a second file with an underscore at the beginning of the filename. (

"What does " This object already has a container" mean in Adobe? I get this error occasionally when trying to save an illustration as a PDF. I have found little tricks to get around it, but now I am stuck....

The "container" here is a Cos object. A direct object cannot be stored into more than one other object. Direct objects are written inline when a PDF is saved. It cannot be
written in two places.

Can't edit or delete my AI CS files. I have CS (ver. 1) installed on my Vista OS PC. The program works fine, but when I reopen some of my files to edit them, upon saving I get a message that says 'Can't...

Right click on the file then click on the properties menu item.

When the file properties page opens, check to see if there is a check mark beside the read only box at the bottom of the page.

If so, clear the check mark and apply your new settings.

Please report your findings so we can be of further assistance if necessary.

Adobe Acrobat 7.1

Usually if this message appears that means you have a problem with the link from adobe to word, because the virtual printer installed by adobe has to work in order for you to save the documents you edit.Some of these messages don't have a real meaning and they are just a message bug, but if you can't save the documents you edit then you need to reinstall the adobe acrobat.

Photoshop CS3 Error

I've never heard of this, unless the user is saving to a PDF format. Have you tried saving a Photoshop document in a different format? Photoshop files are: PSD's or PDD's. I have only ever seen 'presets' in PDF format. In CS3, these are set by selecting: Edit> Adobe PDF Presets.
