This document describes the updated optional DxfDwg.aip plug-in for Illustrator CS3. It also covers installation requirements and installation process.
This updated plug-in creates layers in Illustrator CS3 that correspond to the layers in the DFX or DWG file and imports the objects in the corresponding layer. However, because of differences in the way layers are treated in Illustrator and AutoCAD, object stacking order may change after importing a DFX or DWG file with this plug-in.
Install this optional plug-in only if you want to maintain the layer hierarchy while opening a DXFor DWG file in Illustrator CS3. This
To use the DWF/DWG plug-in, you must meet these requirements:
- Illustrator CS3 13.0 or greater installed
- Mac OS 1.4.8, Mac OS 10.5, Windows XP with Service Pack 2, or Windows Vista
Navigate to the "Illustrator Formats" folder in the Illustrator CS3 installation folder.
- Default location for Windows: C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Illustrator CS3\Plug-ins\Illustrator Formats
- Default location for Mac OS: /Applications/Adobe Illustrator CS3/Plug-ins/Illustrator Formats
Please be aware that the path names might be different on your machine if you have installed a non-English version of Illustrator CS3. In this case, please navigate to the appropriate corresponding folder.
