every time I try to launch Ai it just crashes. I have uninstalled the entire cs4 program and reinstalled, all the other programs are still working just fine, but illustrator is just not working. I get the splash screen for like 2 seconds then it says the program stopped unexpectedly.
Hope you can help!
And I hope it is ok. There are some illos way into it, and I hope you will comment here on them
How do I create (distributed, rotated, perhaps scaled) clones of an object that simultaneously change when the original object is edited?
Simple example: I have to design two identical objects that fit together like ying&yang. Every change to one of them has to have an live-effect on the clone so that the result can be seen live.
Or something like a kaleidoscope: identical objects distributed in a circle, which stay always the same when a single one (or an external master) is edited.
Locked myself out of an AI 10 file by editing with Acrobat 9 2
I recently relearned AI from several years ago. I have AI 10 and created some wiring schematics with it. I saved them in PDF, version 5, I believe. Later I opened this PDF file with Acrobat 9 and made the mistake of making a comment on it. So now I can't open it in AI to do any editing :-( I think I shoulda saved everything in AI first, to prevent this. 20/20 hindsight.
So I'm hoping if I upload the PDF file, would somebody be able to convert it into something AI 10 could open? I know it can open up Acrobat 5.
PS: The wiring schematic is for the airplane I am building.
In Freehand there is a command to restore to its original shape an abject have been transformed. Is there something similar in ICS4?
file size to big - need to keep detail and elements tho - any other methods ? 1
I'm a pretty heavy Illustrator user, but this one has me stumped.
I need to create a one-color image with a gradient that is going to be screen printed.
My screen printer wants the half-tones to be in vector art so he can open it in Corel-Draw. So I planned to print to a .pdf file with the correct half-tone settings.
I've tried everything I can think of and I just can't figure out what setting to use.
Please please help me!!!
I have noticed that the keyboard shortcuts I use all of the time have completely de-activated, namely:
Option key & Space bar = zooming in
Holding down the Shift key whilst selecting, allowing nimble multiple selections.
Holding down the Shift key to constrain proportions or move them in a straight line.
I have put the llustrator CS4 application in the trash and will reinstall when the trash is cleared, but I'm wondering if I might have accidentally hit a combination of keys which turned off these essential functions.
If anyone out there can point me to the right direction I'd be really grateful. There's no active link to the Peer to Peer Forums so apologies if this is the wrong place to post such a query.
Is it possible to hide anchors, or not auto-select the most recent line? 4
Sorry for the extreme newbie question...
When I draw in Illustrator, it automatically "selects" the most recent line that I have drawn. If I then attempt to draw another line that is close to the first one, the result is that the first line will be "bent." Is it possible to set Illustrator so that it does not automatically select the item that I have most recently drawn?
I realize that I can workaround the issue by drawing any intersecting lines, starting farther away from the existing line, but this is slowing me down.
