    ok... this should be an easy one for you guys.

    the administrator at my school is a raging idiot and has no idea what he's doing. somehow he managed to install fetch 3.0.3 and for some reason i don't have the option to choose "Illustrator" as the creator in the binary menu

    can somebody tell me what the type and creator are for an Illustrator AI file when transfering in binary mode are?

    The easiest way to do that is to press the "Choose Example..." button and select an Illustrator file (one that has the right icon).

    it's under 'Suffix mappings', then choose the 'Add' button to find the 'Choose Example' option. Also, another way to find file types and creator codes is to drop a file on the custom Advanced Options search part of Sherlock.
