Hi, don't give up yet.  What is the extension on the files?  .svg, .eps, .ai etc.  That may give us a clue to the problem.  I assume you are doing a file/open in Inkscape right?  Also what vs of Inkscape and on what computer OS?

hi sorry i didnt reply couldnt find my post and then i found the user cp!!

anyway the file extension is eps.  im using inkscape 0.48.4 on vista.  if thats the right info you need?

yes im trying to file>open.

im also having trouble getting eps files to open in signcut.

im so new to all this i just dont know what the hell im doing.

i created an image that was just made with fonts from inkscape and bezier drawings and signcut didnt like it.  i fiddled around with a few bits until it decided to open but im not sure what i did!!!

thanks and sorry for my ignorance

hi take a look at this
http://www.ehow.com/how_5844063_open-_e ... scape.html
it shows how to open an eps file in Inkscape - however I suggest you search for whatever graphics program you have and check how to open the files

it may help
