Import Function VW: how????

Recommended Posts

Does anybody know the necessary preferences for files I want to import into VW (PC-version)?? I didn't find who e.g. EPS files have to be to be importable...

On the Mac side there is no way I've found to get anything usable to import into VectorWorks. All I've ever gotten imported is bit map images, nothing vector based.

I believe that VectorWorks doesn't read the actual PostScript data in an EPS file. That would require that VectorWorks contain its own PostScript interpreter, and we haven't got that. Instead, VectorWorks displays either the preview image included in the EPS file, if any, or else a placeholder (box with an X). When you print, however, the actual PostScript data for the EPS file will be sent to the printer.
