What is the best way to convert a file from freehand to Illustrator CS6?
I tried different methods:
Illustrator 7: Go to an old computer open the freehand file and export as Illustrator 7. Then go to the new computer open Illustrator CS6 and open the Illustrator 7 file. It works but things are moved and I need hours to put everything in order.
Illustrator CS4 or Illustrator CS5: Go to the old computer, open Illustrator CS4 or CS5. Go to file > open and go to the Freehand file. I can open the Freehand but everything are moved.
EPS: Go to the old computer open the freehand file and export as
.eps. Everything is in place but the colors change. Even when the colors are in the same Pantone number, the perception in the screen is really different. I do not understand why?
PDF: Go to the old computer open the freehand file and export as
I need hours to restore-update old files.
Do you know any better method or a way to solve the problems of the commented methods?
