I won't directly answer the question, I will, instead suggest an alternate workflow. The benefit of this workflow is that it is guaranteed that you will not get this problem. First build a isometric grid. Make vertical lines and rotate the field 2 times with 120 degree offset. Tip: If you make the lines uncolored then you can just directly color the image. ...

My way to align/join etc multiple points is as follows: Press "A" and choose the points in question - Now, right click and choose Average->Both: + The result: gif:

Alternative to @Ilan's method would be to add a secondary shape for the black outline. This way you can alter the color boxes and there are holes in the top shape so you don't have to alter the color for multiple objects. Just copy the outer shape and Edit > paste in Front then apply a black stroke and no fill. You can then Group it with the white shape ...

Select > Select All Click the Merge button on the Pathfinder Panel Click the white shapes and delete them Click the bottom shape and change the color Note I'm using the Direct Selection Tool (the white arrow) for a reason here. You should do the same.

If you only need the parallel inner path, you can use the Offset Path tool under Object->Path->Offset Path. You'll just need to enter a negative number as the offset value to make an inner path. The Joins and Miter Limit options work the same as the Corner and Limit options in the Stroke panel. Just make sure you have the Preview box checked to make sure it ...

Don't use a black only at 95%.... make 2 different rich black. One could be 40-40-40-100 and the other 30-30-30-90. Personally I recommend you use a bit more Cyan in your recipes rather than making all your CMY values equal: if the printer is not well calibrated (or is digital), a black with more cyan will still look steel black and not dark brown (eg. ...

The easiest way I know to do this is to create a separate artboard for each illustration. To do this, make sure each one is grouped together. Go to File->Document Setup->Edit Artboards or just hit Shift+o to start editing the artboards. Then just click twice (not double-click) on each group to make a new artboard for each one, it will automatically size ...

you need to select all your artworks, then go Object>Slice>Make file> save for web, after choosing the slice select tool from the left panel you can select each artwork holding shift, and then change from the right panel the options (file type, quality etc.) you can use slice select tool by double clicking on each object, it will bring a dialog box where ...

Appearance Style is probably the cause. Only thing we (in chat) have come up with anyways. If you have an Appearance Style using a Free Distort then you could end up with the result you're seeing:

Make your background a Symbol by dragging it to the Symbol Panel. You can then place instances of that symbol in multiple locations. Just drag the symbol back from the Symbol Panel to the artboard where you want it (or copy an instance already on the artboard). You don't have to use any of the actual Symbol tools to get the benefit of Symbols. Symbol ...

As I commented you cannot make a hole in a way you try (because of a stroke). But actually, this picture does not imply any compound shape - there are just regular ones layered one upon another: I did it in a minute: These are the layers: (made on the retina, thus the size was doubled - sorry about that)

You can't create an Illustrator script which alters the core code base of the application. Essentially, that is what would be required to remove a color or otherwise alter the list of available layer highlight colors in Illustrator. So what you are seeking is impossible, even for a script. Okay, you could write some malware script to alter applications, but ...

You could just save as an Illustrator template (.AIT) file, and use the template to create each new file. This is probably the easiest way to do what you want, though it's hard to say without knowing more about your workflow. If each of your files is already made and you don't want to make each into a new file, you can copy and paste the contents of your ...

I don't believe you can specifically insert a row or column. You can click-drag to highlight multiple cells and copy. Then click-drag to highlight new cells and paste. You don't have to copy/paste one cell at a time.

You can use live trace using the threshold option on illustrator or you can use photoshop by going to Image-->Adjustments-->Threshold and set the level as desired

Object > Path > Offset Path Then use the Direct Selection Tool (the white arrow) to select and delete unwanted parts of the offset path ....

The easiest methods I can think of are a Dashed Stroke or a Pattern Brush. Either would need to be expanded then corners or curves fixed manually, but both would certainly quickly fill most of the path with lines.

Tracing this image might not be the best solution. Complexity of the elements, size, resolution, not so good quality and all other factors might be the reasons for poor results. I'd recommend the service that helps you to find out about what fonts are used in the image https://www.myfonts.com/WhatTheFont/. Onnce you know what fonts are used, it would be ...
