A customer sent me this file to cut out of acrylic. When I open or import it into Corel all i see is light gray .....ummm.....brush strokes? Am I missing something or is it not opening properly for me.

Thanks in advance

I tried but I cannot attach an AI file so I will save it in Corel as I see it.

They almost look like Kanji (Japanese writing) for God and respect. I would ask your client if they know exactly what the meaning is. Sometimes people think they know, but in reality often makes little sense to someone who knows the language. Especially good idea when getting a Kanji tattoo.

It looks a little sloppy to me, but I am no expert. Do a quick google search on kanji images of god and respect and you will get my meaning.

Here it is filled black. I realized the dot was a symbol after I looked at it in wireframe mode. Also, it now has a hairline border for vector cutting.
