Can someone take a look at this file and see what’s going on? No matter how many times I fix it and save it, the cut later keeps resizing when I reopen the file. I’ve saved the file as a different name and it still does it. This is happening on 3 different files, all related to this one project.
The file -
(And now the image won’t save for update. It’s a monday. )
Yes. Same way every time. The only thing that changes is that AI will try to link to the file from time to time. (I think that is another bug since it happens at home and work randomly even on the same file.)
If you’re using Illustrator, you need to do a couple of things:
In Illustrator, you have to Embed the images. Select the image, click on the Embed button that appears in the top row. Then follow the instructions on how to save an SVG file from Illustrator in the tutorial below. (Make sure to watch what’s checked and selected in the options to prevent resizing.)
Second - I don’t know if you are planning to use the red line for a cut or an engrave, but if it is a cut…that file is going to cut out twice around the image. That’s a series of filled short segments set to engrave, not cut, and it’s gonna get absolutely torched.
If you intend to use it as an engrave, it might still cause some issues, because it looks like the segments overlap. The GFUI might blank out any overlaps. So just something to be aware of.
Quick Question: How are you saving the file? I use AI exclusively and I never have problems the only issue is when non-AI users want to have a file I save it as a pdf. Always embed the image when saving the svg. Did you rasterize the image before you saved the svg?
