The Future of this Forum:

The Inkscape Project will open its first official forum, on the Inkscape website, this August (2019). (Address/link will be provided at that time.) When that happens, new registrations will no longer be allowed in this forum and Inkscape support will be provided in the new forum. This forum will still be open for a while, so that existing topics can be finished, and existing users can have access to their contents. But all potential new members should register on the Inkscape website, and post their questions in the new forum, starting in August. If you have any questions or comments, you can post them here.

Since there haven't been any new messages for so long, and no one has ever replied to this message of mine I'm considering closing this forum entirely, in approx 6 months. If anyone has any comments about that, please feel free to post them.

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 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
