OpenDocument Google Graphic files
« on: April 23, 2020, 05:24:38 PM »
Holy schniekes... just got my first job supplied entirely as .odg files

https://www.google.com/search?q=what+is+an+odg+file&rlz=1C5CHFA_enUS730US730&oq=what+is+an+odg+file&aqs=chrome..69i57j0l5.3649j1j8&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8

It's some kind of google vector art. Has anybody worked with these before, and can tell me what kind of pitfalls am I falling in to?

I used zamzar to make them into pdfs. there were raster images embedded. zamzar converted some fonts to outlines. the resulting pdfs were rgb. I kicked back and said, "Thank you. Try again."

That's a good thing you did. Fight the good fight!
