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:

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 ...

You can use the scale tool with the tangent. Once the tangent is selected with the direct selection tool (a) click on the vertex tangent to move scale pivot to vertex. By holding Shift you can now constrain the scaling to be equal in both direction, which achieves what you want. You can also scale both tangents in unison this way. Screencast 1: Moving ...

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.

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 ...

Fill the background with a color your image does not use, like red, lime green or pink. Then trace as normal. Expand, then just select the background color with the magic wand tool and hit delete. Image 1: Image, trace and result after magick wand

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 ...

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. ...

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

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 ...

You need to test the compatibility on diferent target devices, mainly mobil ones to see if your background works. According to this: http://caniuse.com/#feat=svg-css It is now safe to use it inline. If the image is a flat design I would use a png. I would not use a svg for background, just for diagrams. I do not think a background needs to be "that" ...

I think that particular image may have been generated by a 3D application. Which one is your choice. Illustrator can do this to a degree, but it won't easily create the depth of the bump texture. You have to kind of fake it. Draw a couple random paths.... Select both paths and choose Object > Blend > Make from the menu. Then choose Object > ...

You can create your artwork and place it below that shape in the stacking order. Then use Object > Envelope Distort > Make with Top Object to get the art to distort to that particular shape.

Try to check "Preserve Illustrator editing capabilities" while saving, it should fix the problem. Moreover, be sure that: "responsive" is not checked your artwork isn't bigger than your canvas your canvas' size doesn't contains decimal values I use Illustrator to generate .svg for the web and it works pretty well.

Trace your image - without being concerned over the white stroke. Expand the trace Add a white stroke to the resulting Group via the Appearance Panel.
