Mr. Illustrator newbie here doing my first post, so pardon any ignorance which may follow.
saying that all the 'artifacts' of the scanned birth certificate are perfectly legitimate. Here is the scanned BC so you can look at it yourself in Illustrator to see what I mean:
I'd prefer not to get into any political discussion here and just keep it on the techical issues.
Hi everyone, I'm new here =), this is my 1st post.
I'm trying to do something in Illustrator CS5 but I can't find how to and even searching over the internet I still don't know how to make something that seems pretty simple: create highlighted texts.
You can do it in MS Word pretty easily and even in emails you have this option. I want to know if there is some way to make this sort of text in Illustrator. The only solution I found was to create a rectangle behind the text I'm trying to highlight, but that is 1) cheesy and 2) not practical at all because if i change, let's say, the size of the text, I'll have to change my rectangle as well.
I'd appreciate any help in this. I just can't find this sort of information, maybe i'm searching for the wrong words o.O!
ps: I uploaded an image showing what I'm trying to do.
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!!!
