Losing metadata when opening illustrator cs6 file in inkscape

Postby coltyler » Tue Oct 04, 2016 8:09 am

Hi everyone!

I'm new to the forum, so first,thanks in advance for the helping hand!

The problem i have IS that when i open an .ai file from illustrator cs6 in inkscape, I'm losing the metadata in the file.
IS there any way to keep the metadata?

Thanks in advance!

Welcome to the forum!

I don't have much experience with AI, can you show an example document with some metadata that Inkscape doesn't read? Or just paste the bit of code pertaining to it?

If AI doesn't follow SVG specs it isn't likely Inkscape would recognize those bits, although it can be implemented to improve compatibility.
