Well: 4.5 SalineOS (Debian 6)  GNOME (gdm3) imported as a 
solid graphic where individual
circular shapes filled with radial gradients cannot be grabbed.

[Should point out that 4.5 works like a charm on SalineOS - which, with 
GNOME 2 is my current "Yar-Boo-Sucks" to Shufflebottom over at Ubuntu]

[Tangentially, and completely off-topic; what thinks you-all about MATE; 
the GNOME 2 thingy for all of us who are a bit disquieted about Unity 
and GNOME3 ???]

Unable to import several of my own "things" exported from Xara Xtreme.

Unable to import your other .ai files in the folder.

Something going on a bit odd.

Just to be "awkward" I saved a copy of your stack in 'legacy' format and 
opened it with RunRev 2.2.1
for Linux, and it made a mess, but in a different way to 4.5.

Currently my Mac is "on holiday", but will be set up again tomorrow 
night, and at that point I shall try it with 4.0, Dreamcard 2.6.1 and so 
on, and, with luck, I will have some joy.
