Illustrator can't read it's own files properly
Looses bitmap figure embedded in .ai file, reports the bitmap is missing when opening. While other software opens the file just right. Including Adobe Acrobat, Gmail preview, apple finder preview and Affinity Designer.
I made a file using Adobe illustrator, this file contains two jpg images. When I save the file and open it using illustrator on two different computers, a dialoge appears complaining the jpgs are missing and offer to replace them.
Oddly other software packages read the same file just fine, INCLUDING the allegedly missing jpg images, and in good quality.
I can provide the file if you request.
