Illustrator CC 2014 can't open files sent from Draw.

Illustrator CC 2014 v18.0.0 (just installed today, 11/6/2014): I can't open files sent from Adobe Draw. The files send from Draw OK, but in Illustrator—which finally opens as advertised—I get an error message, i.e. The file "Dog - Drawing 1.draw" is in an unknown format and cannot be opened. This goes for all of my work, whether created in Ideas then opened recently in Draw, or files created in Draw from scratch.

Illustrator files (.ai or .pdf)  that I save using CC 2014 vs 8.1.0 on my Windows (8.1) machine on our network server. I try to open them on Mac.
'The File "x.pdf" is an unknown format and cannot be opened'
This may in some way be related to accessing the file over the server since when I transfer the file to my lcal drive I don't get the same error.  I still can't open the file but I get an error near the end of the opening process :
"Could not read the file because the plug-in made an invalid request of the Photoshop adaptor"
Again, I can open this file using CC 2014 vs 8.1.0 on my Windows (8.1) machine.

  • Can't open files directly from file server (MAVERICKS)

    since updating to Mavericks earlier today i have had the below problem
    I use a file server at work to access all my work files. i have no problem accessing the servers but when i try and when I double click to open a file (excel, word, pdf, etc) it says "the application cant be found"
    when Ihave the application open and i open the same file from within the application (file > open) it works fine. I just cannot open files directly from the file server by double clicking.
    in previous versions there have been no problems with this,
    any help would be great,

    Same issue here; I hadn't related it to upgrading to the latest OS 10.9.2. I've shutdown and restared multiple times. I've also rebuilt permissions on my hard drive as I thought it was the Finder but files on my local HD open file. Off the server, I cannot double-click or even drag to the dock. Files open fine if I open the app first then browse to find the file.

  • Illustrator cc 2014 can't save files

    Hi!
    I Have a lot of problems with the Illustrator CC 2014. And it freaks me out. I have no idea how to reach Adobe. I've tried another Adobe forum but haven't heard anything.. I would appreciate some sort of help. Or if someone knows where to post the question?
    1) First of all can't save files… I wish this could be the number one feature in a design app but apparently not..
    I got   "unknown error " and all work spent is gone forever. This happens a lot.
    2) also lagging problems. when moving graphics and zooming in illustrator. it is SO stressful.
    I have Two computers, with the same problems.
    Imac 27 " mid 2011
    Processor 3,4 ghz intel core i7
    16 GB 1333 Mhz DDR3

    Nils Petter,
    If no brighter suggestion comes up, you may try the list, see below.
    Did you install fully on both computers (after upgrading the OS if relevant)?
    The following is a general list of things you may try when the issue is not in a specific file, and when it is not caused by issues with opening a file from external media. You may have tried/done some of them already; 1) and 2) are the easy ones for temporary strangenesses, and 3) and 4) are specifically aimed at possibly corrupt preferences); 5) is a list in itself, and 6) is the last resort.
    If possible/applicable, you should save current artwork first, of course.
    1) Close down Illy and open again;
    2) Restart the computer (you may do that up to at least 5 times);
    3) Close down Illy and press Ctrl+Alt+Shift/Cmd+Option+Shift during startup (easy but irreversible);
    4) Move the folder (follow the link with that name) with Illy closed (more tedious but also more thorough and reversible), for CS3 - CC you may find the folder here:
    https://helpx.adobe.com/illustrator/kb/preference-file-location-illustrator.html
    5) Look through and try out the relevant among the Other options (follow the link with that name, Item 7) is a list of usual suspects among other applications that may disturb and confuse Illy, Item 15) applies to CC, CS6, and maybe CS5);
    Even more seriously, you may:
    6) Uninstall (ticking the box to delete the preferences), run the Cleaner Tool (if you have CS3/CS4/CS5/CS6/CC), and reinstall.

  • Can't open files saved from Safari

    In SL, I have a new problem with files that are saved from Safari.
    I first noticed it with an Automator service I made, which took selected text and made a text file out of it. But I eventually discovered the problem seemed to be with Safari. Any time Safari saves a file -- if for example, I click a link and it downloads a .zip file, then there is something wrong with that file that prevents me from opening it in another app.
    When I try to open the saved file, either by double-clicking in the Downloads window or from the Finder, the target app just starts bouncing in the dock and never opens. I have to force-quit it. If the target app is already open, it switches to it but never opens the document.
    This is only for files that were saved by Safari. Other PDF's and zip's open just fine.
    And, if I manually launch the target app, and then go to Open... and navigate to the saved document, I can open it fine.
    Files saved from Safari seem to have something wrong with them. If I quit Safari, logout, or even reboot, they still refuse to open by double-clicking.
    What could be causing this?

    Reset safari
    Safari/Reset Safari
    Go to Your HD/Library/Internet Plug-ins/ and remove to trash the "AdobePDFViewer.plugin".
    Open Safari and a .pdf and it should now open with Preview in a Safari/Browser window.
    If not then re download

  • My excel won't let me open files sent from others

    "Microsoft Office Excel cannot access the file <filename>. There are
    several possible reasons:
    - The file name or path does not exist.
    - The file is being used by another program.
    - The workbook you are trying to save has the same name as a currently open
    workbook."

    You will probably be better off asking your question in this forum, where Microsoft users support each other.
    Best of luck.

  • PC users can't open invitations sent from my Mac iCal

    Recently, I get responses from invitees telling me they cannot open my iCal invitations. Is there something I'm missing, or is the fault in the PC?

    Thanks for the information. Leave it to Microsoft to create Outlook AND Entourage, and (a) not make Outlook Mac friendly, and (b) not make the two compatible with one-another. Incredible! Thanks again.

    I can not open files FH11, Is it because I have the trial version of Illustrator CC 2014?

    FH support has been dropped in CS6.
    The FH plugin from tensai.co.uk should solve your problem.

    Hi Ashley Clavette,
    The Initial view setting works perfectly when the file is opened in Acrobat after setting the desired Initial View.
    When you upload the file onto Wordpress, and view it on that website in the browser...it might be using a different pdf handler program which might be causing this issue ( it would be helpful, if you could provide the screenshot) , however when you download the pdf again from wordpress server...and open in Acrobat/Reader...then what  exactly happens ?  Does the pdf opens in the desired Initial View setting?

  • Can`t open files in CS5.1 Illustrator

    I can`t open files in Ai CS5.1 . This problem has appeared the last week, I have been using this program every week for the last two years. The message I get is: The file was generated by a newer version of Illustrator.
    I have tried to download CS6, but the message I get is: You don`t need this update.
    So what can I do to make this work??

    jannemarete,
    In addition to what Scott and PrintFusion said, the offending file(s) could have been created in either CS6 or CC.
    In the latter case you will need to download the CC trial (you can use that for CS6 files as well, but there is no need to squander that option before you have some CC files do deal with).
    The CC download can be made from this link:
    http://www.adobe.com/downloads.html?promoid=JZEFS
    An easier option may be to ask for a CS5 version when you receive files from others with CS6 or CC. Also, if you do that, any version induced change in the files will be on them.

  • I'm using OS 10.6.8 and Mail 4.5. When I receive mails with attachments which are visible the save button doesn't work. Some contacts have problems opening files sent by me using Mail too. This was never a problem on pre-Intel. A real Mac **** up !

    I'm using OS 10.6.8 and Mail 4.5. When I receive mails with attachments which are visible the save button doesn't work. And some contacts occasionally have problems opening files sent by me using Mail too. This was never a problem on pre-Intel Mac. A real Mac **** up ! Any ideas ?

    Can you drag and drop the attachments visible in the email to the Desktop OK or does that fail ?
    Re the sending: Are these recipients on Mac's or PC's as the file type could be an issue, if on Mac's then try setting the Mail Preferences Composing setting to Plain Text not Rich Text and see if that improves things.
