Can I lock vector art EPS10 files to avoid editing?
I read somewhere that it is possible to save an illustrator file as a .eps file and have no layer editing options? So the art is scaleable but not editable?
I have tried but can't seem to find anything? Did I misread and this isn't possible and all .eps single layer files are editable i.e. change colour scheme and alter original vector design.
I don't know if i'm am missing something really obvious but if someone could help explain the process and offer any help, I would greatly appreciated it. Thanks.
Just to clarify I am currently working in Illustrator CS5.
You can not "lock" Illustrator files. Any vector art is always edit able to a degree. You can purposely expand and flatten artwork to make editing difficult, but you can not prevent all editing.
I know this doesnt answer you question about EPS, but you can prevent editing in PDFs! In my opinion its the best format to hand over artwork anyway.
