possibility to transfer into illustrator?

Asked by katriena

Made illustrations in inkscape, they have to be translated into adobe illustrator. So, how can I save these illustrations so that they can be opened and read in illustrator?

you can save them in .svg, illustrator will open them.
Remember that illustrator is less advanced than Inkscape :P so it will not be able to render transparent gradients and some filters (like blur f.ex.). Transparency on some objects will be lost as well, but that's easy to set back once you open your file in illustrator.

Or you can save the files in .pdf, choose the option "rasterize filter effects" and then everything should be exported fine in illustrator. Keep in mind that rasterized effects will not be editable anymore like vector.
