Illustrator document to Photoshop – Preserve Layers?

Is it possible to import a Illustrator document into Photoshop and keep the layers – we need to supply a multi layered document to a client in this way asap…

We have tried exporting the doc as a PSD from Illustrator – but the ‘write layers’ option is disabled for some reason!

Any advice?



In Illustrator,

File > Export… >

Format: Photoshop (psd), Use Artboards, All

The Color Mode must match the color mode used for the document (my guess is this is what you are doing differently)
