Illustrator (still) cannot read TIF files.
When can we remedy this? I cannot open or place a TIF file in Illustrator 27.6.1. The error message is the file is an unknown format and can't be opened.
There are reports on this page still open from 2021. When will this be fixed?
I have several TIFs from a museum to lay out for printing and I'm having to individually bring them all in to photoshop and export them as a different format.

@Egor Just sent the files via email, thanks for your response.
Nikki, the team would require one of these TIFs to study to get it fixed.
Please share one, here (if you can publicly share it), or privately, via email@example.com (mention the link to this report then so it can be tracked — http://illustrator.uservoice.com/forums/601447/suggestions/46938196)
I suspect there is some minor error in the file which prevent Illustrator to import it. It happened before with other formats. So — the file! Nothing can be done without it.
