I have a logo that was done for me but I would like to open it in Corel to do some tweaking but it won't open the ai or eps version of the file.   I tried to post the file but its too big, If you can look at it send me a email at Hornnumb2 at Comcast dot Net and I will send it to you. Thanks Michael

This may be due to the fact that the AI file is newer than CorelDRAW X4 and X4 does not know how to interpret the new AI/EPS format and compression. Can you have the original designer re-supply you with another file, in an older AI/EPS format or in a PDF format.

I tried saving it in a older format of AI  but then I lose some of the design elements...

Does anybody have X5 that might try opening it. Thanks

Michael was kind enough to send it my way and what I found was that with Adobe Illustrator we got this:

 

and yet with me trying to convert to a usable version for CordeDRAW, the gradients were the issue:

 

Another case of AI and CorelDRAW not playing nice together.  Sad

Let not the one who says it can't be done interrupt the one who is doing it.

Like Hugh said, try PDF. May work better (no guarantee though).

PDF file gives a error too.

I was able to create this effect in CorelDRAW though -- easier than I thought:

I have attached the .CDR file -- just right button click and it and select properties and fudge the colors and 'spot'.

P>S.  The font used for the "JB" was Lithograph, which I believe you should have.
