It looks like you want a hexagon that has symmetric handles at each node. I don't think there's any standard tool to do this, so use something like Effect > Pucker & Bloat with a value around 100%. Expanding this shape and adding points with Object > Path > Add Anchor Points gives you a shape with 12 nodes that has a nice amount of curvature in ...

You can achieve the effect you desire using the 'pucker & bloat' dialog in 'Effect>Distort & Transform'. The only caveat is that is it will only work up to 3% bloat before the effect starts to turn your hexagon into a flower. 1. Start with your hexagon 2.Apply 3% Bloat 3. By 5% you will see inward facing nodes start to form at your vertices. and ...

The problem is, there's no indexing of whether or no .pdf files contain either pixel or vector images. One can open up a .pdf using Adobe Illustrator, Affinity Serif, (or Inkscape if one wants a free solution), &c., but one won’t know until opening up the file how what it contains is represented in the file. Moreover, the contents of the image are ...

There is no typical answer for your question, there is no rule, however you can follow you own methodology for the work, working with a template and graphic, text and paragraph style to ensure a consistency and unity for your work.

While this not directly answers your questions, here is what I do (except for well-justified exceptions): Always work in the target journal’s style. For pure plots: For the first plot: Decide whether it should be a one-column or two-column plot. Adjust the height of what is plotted such that the information I want to convey is best visible and I also do ...

There is no standard. Seasoned designers often understand the value of vector files and will often start with the vector format then generate raster format. The resolution independence of vector makes it almost automatically a "given" for a logo. A logo is most often sized and scaled a whole range of sizes. Starting with, or providing vector, just makes ...

You can easily draw the lines using the pen tool. 1) use the pen tool (P) and start drawing some paths. Once you're done with a road you can click on the black mouse (V) to stop/deselect the current path. You can change the colors by selecting the boxes next to the width stroke option. 2) Re-select the path using the black mouse tool (V). Change the ...

Your monitor uses pixels to display anything. There's no such thing as a digital display where pixels are not present, regardless of how an image is constructed. Some construction method do not output pixel data, but all displays use pixels.

Two that are most commonly used and have been used by dozens of big animation studios including Disney and Nickelodeon are Toon Boom Animate and Anime Studio. Programs like this allow you to break up each model into individual parts - separate limbs and ...

As far as I am aware, it is not at all necessary, assuming all fonts have been embedded. However, I will always include a rasterised (JPG) copy of the artwork when sent to the printers along with the PDF, Just to be SURE their software/RIP is rendering the pdf as expected. Never rely on "It's supposed to" - things corrupt, versions change etc. You can't ...

After you draw your hexagon, use the Direct Selection Tool (white arrow) to select the entire object. You should now see these little dots in each corner: Then all you need to do is go up to your menu bar and adjust the corner radii: You can get any radius you want and it can be adjusted smaller or larger at any time in the future. Edit - I just ...

I'm using the latest version of Illustrator, so if this doesn't help then it maybe because of that, however when I create this shape and select the direct selection tool, you should see small selectable points within the shape that allow you to click and drag to make the corners rounded. If you don't see these, at the top of the screen is a small link called ...

Additionally: You can import your .psd with layers in Illustrator in the new version of Illustrator. It should make the text in vector if you select "convert layers to objects." This is really only a "lifesaver." Photoshop is made to be used for images not vectors, but it has some basic vector tools as clearly mentioned in all the other answers and ...

Select the layers that you wish to combine. Press the "Union" button in the tool bar, or from the to menu, choose Layer > Combine > Union. (You already got to this point, of course.) Layer > Paths > Flatten will merge the shapes into the same path.

If I'm not mistaken, are you asking about changing the width between different anchor points in the shape? Something like the image below? One way to change the width of the stroke between anchor points is by using the width tool You can make it wider or thinner by going to a point where you want the change to start and hold-click, then moving up or down ...

The Scissor tool is great for this. The default hotkey is "C". You can click anywhere on a path (in your case, on each anchor point) to effectively cut the path in that location, resulting in two paths. After that, you can simply direct select (hotkey "A") each path segment and adjust the stroke accordingly.
