Illustrator 8.0 can open any Adobe Illustrator (AI) file, EPS file, PDF
file (one page at a time), and Photoshop 2.5, 3.0, 4.0, and 5.0 file. In
addition, version 8.0 can open or place Macromedia FreeHand 5.0, 5.5, and
7.0 files and CorelDRAW 5.0, 6.0, and 7.0 files, as well as files saved in
DXF, CGM, CMX, Amiga IFF, BMP, GIF89a, JPEG, Kodak, Photo CD, PCX, PXR,
PNG, TGA, and TIFF format.
We have noticed a bug when importing EPS files that were created with
Adobe InDesign 1.0. Indeed if you simply open the EPS file or import it
some characters will be hidden or will disappeared with no reasons. Adobe
has confirmed this to be an Illustrator bug and found a workaround that
consists to import EPS files made by InDesign as Model.
Illustrator 8.0 imports and exports the following text formats: ASCII,
Microsoft RTF, Microsoft Word 6.0/95, and Corel WordPerfect. We deeply
regret the lack of text files formats that Illustrator 8 supports. Even
Corel Draw 9 supports more text files formats!
Obviously you can change the font, the size, the color, the spacing, the alignment (and much more) of the text ! However we regret that to create a gradient text, users have to first vector-based the text and then choose the gradient style. Itís a supplementary hassle that is no use.
