    Default Adobe Illustrator CS to FreeHand MX

    I have an Illustrator E-Mail Attachment File which I'm trying to Open in
    FreeHand MX and print out as
    color seperations. The file is a multi color design all colors in spot colors.
    Now, I want to be able to
    bring the ai. art file in FH and be able to resize the image, change the
    colors and do anything you would
    want to do in FH.

    I can get the art image into FH but it won't ungroup and I can't do anything
    with the colors changing.
    Can anyone give me a STEP by STEP outline to accomplish what I want?

    Please Help me If You Can___

    I am grateful for your help

    I don't think FH can open a Illustrator CS native file. It appears as
    though it is just placing the PDF. My suggestion is to go back to
    illustrator and export a legacy ai version 8 file. FH can open and edit
    that although if there may be problems with text and gradients.

    Very correct. An Illustrator 7-8 version is needed. And it will probably do some funny things, but you will be able to overcome them in FH.
