There's this cool plugin: http://aiscripts.com/ai-scripts/openmultipagepdf/ It's worked beautifully for me

You can also do it with other CS6 compatible scripts: Select Open Paths Close All paths Select Open Paths And this super nice one that lets you select open paths, gradients, transparencies, etc: Extended Select

I have a method for finding open paths. Using the document info objects, I go through the artwork and select certain pieces and when I find the piece i've selected that shows an open path, I copy that selection over so i can separate the section with the open path and that way it's easier to find. Hope this helps.

As I said, a task better suited for AI, but this is how I would do this in PS. There may be a better way to go about this, but I don't use PS for this kind of stuff, so I don't know about it, if there is. The initial shape: I made a duplicate of the shape and decreased the Fill to 0%. This is the shape that I then applied my stroke to. I then selected ...

Ok do this: Make a line about the length of the ZigZag size you need(use the line tool or pen tool). Make sure to put a color on the Stroke or Fill of the line before the next step. Go to Effect > Distort & Transform > ZigZag Click the preview checkbox and adjust the Size and Ridges per Segment sliders until satisfied. Once you've hit OK you'll have ...

You can't use effects or brushes with entire rectangles. Simply create one side, then draw the other three sides of a rectangle. Create the triangles easily by drawing a path and choosing Effect > Distort & Transform > Zig Zag Choose Object > Expand Appearance Grab the Pen Tool and draw the other three sides of a rectangle.

In Photoshop CS6 or newer, you can simply set the Stroke Options for a vector path....

Make sure that the initial jpeg and the CS6 file resolution are both on inches. The conversion done on Adobe's cut/paste between software usually works best on the same suite (within CS6 all around, etc.).

I had the same weird problem in CS5. I think it's a bug. How I solved it: in the very footer of Illustrator, next to the zoom dropdpown and artboard Navigation, there's a "Selction" dropdown - you can specify to see there different information - from your artboard name to Date & Time. Click on it to change to any selection and then it suddenly starts ...

I've stumbled upon this problem many times. My only work-around was dragging the tab beside or in close proximity to the tab I wanted to exchange layers with. At times I would pop the tab outside of the list, go to the tab I want to drag the layer to, and just pop that tab (or should I say window) right beside it. I hope that helps.

I've done this myself, the shortcut is ctrl + shift + B in Windows and cmd + shift + B on a Mac. Hope that helps.

Try choosing View > Show Bounding Box from the menu.

I'd just use the OTF version and ignore the TTF version. It's Windows TTF which is restricted to 4 faces, but Windows can easily use the OTF version. The site labeling OTF as a "Mac format" is misleading. OTF is a universal format - but then, so is TTF.

Photoshop CS6 was the first version to default to a timeline animation. If you want a frame animation, you can convert to frames by using the menu on the Timeline Panel.

I encountered the same issue though mine was not related specifically to images. I isolated it to the fact that I was referencing a single variable multiple times in my report. For example, I had the variable "ReportTitle" and linked it to a text box at the top of three different pages. I would see this in the variables panel: Variables Objects ...

I don't have a clue, what happened there, but you can have all your work back by making new blank document in Illustrator and then File->Place and place your PDF. After that just hit Embed and then you can work with your graphics again.

They aren't linked, colors are only used to visually be able to differentiate objects from the different layers. When you select an object, its outline will have the same color as the layer color. I guess that Adobe chose to not make the sub layers the same color because they guessed(?) that users would like it that way...

View - Perspective grid - Hide Grid worked for me

You can't include the text elements into the symbol - they will (as you said) be altered on all instances if you change the text on one of them. I often create the symbol with the graphics only and add text to each of the instances.

In Photoshop I would put all the background layers in a folder and drag all the foreground images above it. Then turning them all off but the one I wanted to save as a copy in the desired format. This way I can crop and move the foregrounds to my liking. Also I can adjust the blending. The automation's options are quite limited (read: stupid). From a ...

Try an win+d (show desktop). Then restore ill. (Sometimes this solves some stuck floating popups too). Or cut the culprit and paste it in front. (ctrl+x, ctrl+f). Same thing here. Except zooming won't fix it, and if I select another object, the bounding box thingy includes the culprit. Hope this helps!

There are some graphical bugs in Illustrator. If you, for example, create a text box that's really small, the red '+' can remain on the screen even though you've deleted the text box. To see if it's a graphical bug - zoom in and out back again, this will remove graphical bugs.

I know it's late on this, but I just found your question and it had been a problem of mine until I figured it out. If the layers are not smart objects, the cropping will get messed up. Try converting them all to smart layers and then crop.

From the menu choose Window > Pathfinder and look at the shortcuts presented to the right. Those are the keys needed to open that panel. It would have taken you much less time to simply click the Window menu item than it took to post your question here.
