Looking for an old version of illustrator to save a file
on Nov 26, 2009 at 11:21:37 am

I need to save a .ai file in a version 7 (or previous) format, and for that I need to have access to version 10 (or previous) - does anyone here have access to an early version that could save the file for me?

Thanks

Why exactly 7?

all modern Illustrator versions can save down to 8 or 3 (strangely enough no intermediate versions). 3 should work most of the time...

Thanks for the response

The person that is going to be using the file (to be used on a vinyl cutting printer) can only use v7 or earlier. Does that mean they can open v3?

I was not aware that it was possible to save down to version 3 using new versions - does that include CS?

Thanks again

These cad-like programs are very likely to accept anything pre illustrator 7, so 3 should work.

All of the CS'es can save down to v.3, cs2 an cs3 both can from their "Save As.." option, in CS1 you have to Export to get to the older versions.
