Editing imported EPS file - can't cut and paste

Recommended Posts

Hi, I've imported a purchased EPS file to AP and it comes in as a layered file with the first layer being an identical of the second layer which is titled 'image.' If I flatten the image in order to edit it (I need to rearrange objects within the graphic by cutting and pasting, erasing, etc.) it becomes rasterized and loses definition. If I try and select just a portion of the graphic with the lasso tool to move it AP moves the whole graphic. How can I edit this graphic without rasterizing it? Thank you!

Hard to tell without seeing the file contents (if layers are vector or raster graphics) and how it is distributed over layers here in AP when imported.

If it's opening as an image it will have to be rasterised to do any editing but the point of eps is normally to have vectors, sounds like there is no pdf portion for Affinity to utilise and extract vector info from.

If you have Inkscape, how does it open in Inkscape, if you don't have Inkscape download it here, install it and try to open the eps with Inkscape.
