information As e00 files are generally an archive of several files, MAPublisher will reproduce an e00 import as distinct Adobe Illustrator layers. Notice that MAPublisher generates point, area, line and text layers. An extra layer appended with _tic_point is created to hold tic points, as was specified in the Settings dialog box.
