can you post the file?

Some guidelines which may help:

  • no embedded pixel images
  • minimize overlapping paths
  • avoid intersecting paths — use Boolean operations to create the desired appearance
  • expand all effects
  • close all paths which should be closed (Illustrator can fill unclosed paths)
  • view in outline mode for a preview of what the application will be importing

Did you ever find the "How To? I have not been able to take an AI in Illustrator then save a SVG in Illustrator then import into easel.

In inkscape you need to delete your original image out of inkscape before you can save your new file. Not sure if AI works the same way.
