Try Object -> Expand Does that bring any changes? Btw I can't guess if there is any difference in these algorithms.

You do this with Clipping Masks. What you basically want to do is draw a path outlining where you want the person to appear, place the picture below your new object, then create the clipping mask. I'll outline this in more detail below. Starting out with some random lady I found and a diamond shape with a square below that. To begin the creation of ...

You do not need the bounding box. It is possible to work 100% of the time and never use the bounding box on any object. In fact, the only reason the bounding box was ever added to Adobe Illustrator is to make CoreldDraw users feel more comfortable (no joke, that's the truth). Seriously, there's only one thing the bounding box does which can not easily be ...

I have the same problem but I've just started making a hexagon and then using the delete anchor point tool on the two sizes to turn the shape into a rectangle then your able to transform it as you wish (as you would if you made a rectangle). Its a little bit irritating but if you don't have the upgrade and haven't got mavericks then thats an easy fix for the ...

You could install something like the Processing IDE and then search and literally load a sketch (replace the assets with yours i.e. jpg files), then grab an image of that: This is based on Delaunay triangulation. It is far from perfect but it can help and the source code from such a sketch can be modified. Surely many other frameworks allow for such ...

I too am experiencing the lack of control handles in the latest upgrade in Illustrator CC and do not want to upgrade to Mavericks. I have reset my prefs with no avail. One option is to place a smaller object on top of the object to transform, select them both and "POOF" control handles.

You’ve come across the Live Rectangle bug which is limited to the MAC versions starting with 10.7 and 10.8, but not 10.9 (Mavericks), see this thread (official Adobe Illustrator Forum): probleme with the handles on new version of AI CC 2014 Since we’ve already experienced some serious problems with the Live Rectangle (snap to grid bug) I’ve decided to write ...

You likely have corrupted your preferences. I would delete them and rebuild the application. It is very unlikely your OS or your graphics card would be the culprit. Find the Illustrator Pref file and delete it, then relaunch. It's also possible that 2 preferences are conflicting with one another. Show Handles, Show bounding box, etc. I'm at work so I can't ...

I contacted Adobe about this issue because I was having the same problem. They said that in order to use the latest version of CC you need to upgrade your OS (operating system) to 10.9. I am on 10.8.5 which is as high as the OS X Mountain Lion goes. This means that you need to upgrade to the OS X Mavericks, which is currently on 10.9.5. I have been ...

Starting from a bunch of lines, you can combine them with Ctrl+K (refer to Path menu): Then you have to put the second path in the desired position: Now, you can cut the path with Ctrl+Alt+/: Here come the boring part: each line is cutted in two or more segments. You have to select them one by one (I have colored the stroke while selecting, just to ...

When things aren't show up (like shapes) there are a few things that can be causing that apart from colors and stroke. Go to Objects - >Fill & Stroke - > Fill tab and check to see if the fill is at 100%. Also go to Layers and check if layer opacity is at 100%

I found the answer by checking all my layers. My layers are very organised, in groups etc. Within one of my CLOSED LAYER GROUPS, ABOVE THE SHAPE LAYER I was working on, was a hue and saturation layer. This was affecting the colour I was trying to specify. So simple, yet so frustrating. And there I was thinking my new Photoshop CS6 was somehow corrupt and ...
