Has anyone else experienced an issue dealing with converted CAD files in Illustrator?
Sometimes I get CAD files converted to PDF that have really overcomplicated simple shapes.
Everything is converted to points even text. It's a really poor conversion like one letter being made of hundreds of points and shapes. (Path Finder isn't much help here)
This makes Illustrator extremely laggy on some computers.
My client and I have no idea what CAD program is used to create these files.
Here's an example of it. I've zoomed in on a sample of really small text.
Zooming in or out of this letter creates about 4 seconds of lag.
Is there a solution to this problem?
