!div style="display:none"!fjrigjwwe9r2content:tip!/div!To get your Freehand or Illustrator Profiles into Strata on a PC:
Export the profile as "Adobe Illustrator 7.x(*.ai)" file format and don't allow the computer to add the ."ai" suffix, instead you replace it with .".eps" - alternatively you can just save it straight and then change the file extension on the desktop.
Go to Strata and "File!Import" and voila! it recognizes and imports the files directly into Strata (usually) holes and all.
You may have to fiddle if you have punched holes in your object and it may take a few tries to get it right.
Always convert type to outlines.
