When I import SWF or AI files into Animate or Animate Pro why does the function for importing these files appear greyed out?
The quick answer to this is because the Library folders are locked.
Unlike other file formats that are imported into Animate or Animate Pro, SWF and AI files are imported through the library.
You can unlock a Library folder by right clicking it and selecting "Get Right to Modify"
Unlocking the Library folders:
Note: The Symbols folder does not import these file types.
