trying to import a file from illustrator
it's a logo
figured out how to save it so that the logo actually will import...
now it imports with an entire box around it...
which i'm assuming is the background that illustrator thinks is part of the logo?
You're probably right about the box being behind the logo in Illustrator. People sometimes add a background for a variety of purposes.
It may be white on white and hard to see. The fastest way to find out for sure may be to switch the view to outline mode and see if you can find the box outline. It may also be locked, but you can unlock it using Object>unlock all, then delete it.
