Text & Maya

Novice question about importing Illustrator files or otherwise creating text in Maya (6.5). When I try to import my Ill CS files, Maya opens FCheck. OK. Now what? How do I get the art/path in the modeling (?) window?

Or are there other/better methods for text and logos and the like?

Thanks.

Sorry to state the obvious, but make sure you go to the 'Import' command and not the 'Open' command. Beyond that, there may be a version compatibility issue? Try saving your Illustrator file as an older version and see if that works.

can you really import illustrator files and create geometry out of it?

Or - I could just go Create > Text > (options), doye. However, the problem here is that the text comes in as an outline and not as a solid.
How to fix?
