Check the display mode. Wireframe will display bitmaps as a box.  Signgo dosnt like transparent PNG files producing a messy box in transparent areas Sad be nice to see that fixed.

A clue as the resolution is Signgo imports at 150 dpi (dots per inch) so a 2 inch box (50mm) is 300 dots on each side.

HELP Embarrassed  I am trying to download a PLT file.  Once my computer asked me to open, I click OPEN and signgo opens to a black page.

This happens with some jpgs, eps, and vector files.

What am I not doing?

Bitmaps will open to a blank rectangle in wire frame. EPS / AI files in new formats will be blank - Signgo reads upto Version 4 (that's illustrator 4 not CS4 ) eps and A1. It dose not read bitmap eps files.

.PLT files are far more problematic. Signgo is set to import HPGL plot files, it will not import Gerber PLT files - blank page if you try.

If you open a HPGL  PLT file in notepad/wordpad it will have a structure like this.
IN;PA;PU79,624;PD79,595;PD82,567;PD86,540;PD92,513;PD98,487;PD106,461;PD115,435;
PD125,411;PD136,386;PD148,363; etc...
the PA may be a PR.
I found some others on the web, there may be more.

Clipper (Ver. 5 Pre-linked Transfer File)
dnaLIMS (3700 Sample Sheet) by dnaToolsDNA
Gerber Sign-making Software
