In Illustrator, you when you rotate an object using the rotate tool, you can first click once to set the pivot pint and that's what your object will rotate around. arrange your cards in a row so that they are not quite on top of each other, and then pivot them all at the same pivot point. To ensure they are all rotated at the same pivot point, rotate the ...

As you put it, vectorizing every pixel makes no sense. Imagine you vectorize every pixel and then resize it. You simply have bigger squares. The exact same thing happens if you change the ppi on an output, you have bigger pixels. You do not need to resample it. You want to get rid of the blurriness. That is a totally different issue. That happens when ...

It wouldn't really add anything. That is what pixel images are anyway, a map of discrete colored squares, exactly the same as if you converted each pixel to a vector square. Take this image from my answer on a previous question asking how to do exactly what you are talking about: That is a 256 pixel square tile increased in size to 6,400 pixels square, ...

Illustrator uses a font engine that is not capable of doing single line fonts. All fonts in illustrator are outlines no matter what. If we take CNC Vector as an example its simply a outline that turns up on itself, so it is not truly a singe line font as far as illustrator or your cad is concerned. So beware if you use a cnc machine/ laser cutter the area ...

SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) is an XML based vector image format. You can use your coordinates and path descriptions to write your SVG code directly in any text editor. You describe your image using SVG path elements, using various drawing commands as well as basic shape elements in combination with fills and strokes etc. You can find more info on SVG ...

You can take a good photo of the logo, or have it scanned. Then use Inkscape to trace it acordingly to the instructions with the photo as a base. Edited. You can not trace a logo using formulas, but yes, if a logo has parameters you can use them, for example, the line A is one thirth of the line B. The total width is 20 times larger than the stroke C. ...

There is no info on how the curve should continue. Adobe gives you three (or four more on that later) choices in these cases. The choices are miter, which continues the path straight after information stops, round, which makes a circular join, and bevel which just connects the parts at the unknown. Image 1: The three choices provided by Adobe when ...

This is because Illustrator now creates Linked Assets. In previous versions of Illustrator CC, every graphic asset, once dragged from the Libraries panel into an Illustrator document, was no longer linked in any way to the original asset. Consequently, modifying the original asset in a library had no effect on the copy used in the document. Illustrator ...

You're having an issue, because the source file is tiny. To illustrate this, I increased the object's size by 500% (Object > Transform > Scale): At 500% scale, you can finally begin to notice the offset path (-1 px here): I would increase your object's size, to begin with. Alternatively, you can try to mess around with small decimals to offset your ...

This doesn't directly answer your question about converting the pixels to vector shapes, but... If the only reason you want to convert the pixels to vector shapes is to scale then it's not really necessary (it would be nice, but if your having trouble doing it, it's not essential). All you need to do is increase the size of the image in integer multiples ...

First make sure the top image is the only layer, so if there's a default white background layer then delete it. Layer → Layer Style → Blending Options Under This Layer at the bottom see how the left part of the white is moved in. Hold Alt and drag that part of the slider with your mouse until its to your liking.

When you import a vector file into inkscape, it comes in as a group of vector objects. Thus resolution isn't an issue. I do this a lot for graphs from origin and python/matplotlib. This is easy to check - -click on a curve in your graph and select the "edit paths by node" tool (F2) - you'll be able to edit the nodes. Auto-updating would be nice, but I ...

Short and generalized answer—The paths are the same, the output is different. There are great explanations of the difference between vector and raster images here: What are the differences between vector graphics and raster graphics? Slightly longer answer—It depends... Adobe Illustrator is a vector graphics program. Everything you create in ...

Have you thought about SketchUp? I have found it easy to learn and use, and it is backed by a pretty big 3D model repository. You can export 2D graphics from it too. Sketchup: http://www.sketchup.com/ (you can download the free Sketchup Make and try it out) Sketchup repository: https://3dwarehouse.sketchup.com/index.html

Take my (similarly well made...) map of Westeros Draw your Kingdom's borders With everything selected, use the Shape Builder Tool (SHIFT + M) Select each Kingdom and color as you wish Westeros!

Alternatively you can use the Pathfinder's Divide tool. Open the Pathfinder panel with Shift+Ctr+F9. Draw the provinces as paths dividing Westeros, and make sure those lines overlap. Select everything and click on divide. You can then cleanup and style the different Kingdoms separately. NB: Protip, to get the best cleanup effect make sure you don't ...

Open your artwork in Illustrator, select the elements that are 'disappearing' and, in the Attributes panel, make sure Overprint Fill and/or Overprint Stroke aren't checked. You can also quickly check if you're going to have any overprint issues by going View > Overprint Preview.

Layer > Convert to Outlines Boolean operations work on paths, not strokes (or effects etc). You need to convert your stroke to outlines so that you are working exclusively with paths.

If I understand the problem, there are several ways to do this: Enable the "Snap to page border" snapping option, then just drag the object towards the corner With the object selected, you can manually set the X and Y coordinates from the toolbar With the object selected, press Ctrl+Shift+X to open the XML editor and change the X and Y manually

I use symbols for what you are doing: cmd + shift + f11. Select the object and in the menu in your symbols pallet click new and save. Then when you need that shape pull it out onto the screen. Make sure to unlink if you are using multiple versions because if you make a change to one object you make it to all.

Okay, here is how how I get Adobe library, it's a way to use elements across Adobe applications. Having said that, Adobe library saves it in a way that all Adobe applications can handle. That doesn't mean you can't work on it or edit it, in my version of Illustrator it shows where it was created, and if you double click on the Ai icon next to it, it opens a ...

The subtraction of the inner circle can be reset, giving this result: (Btw, this only works after removing the circle from the group, or else Sketch just subtracts two circles from the rectangle at a different spot) As you can see, it kinda works, but there is a whole part of the inside of the circle again that is flowing outside of the boundaries of the ...
