You can select your border and then click on the cog symbol at the borders panel. Then choose your ends and joins in the dropdown, that appears.

This is an issue with the server on which this image is stored. The server is incorrectly telling your browser that it is sending text, so the browser interprets the file as text. Simply save the file using the "Save Page" option, and then open it in the browser from your local disk. You can also use an SVG viewer of editor instead of the web browser.

Object > Expand Appearance Then Object > Expand Converts all strokes to shapes. Makes all Appearance Panel settings expanded to objects. Then you could use the Merge button on the Pathfinder Panel to basically remove any construction areas which are not visible. You can also use Object > Flatten Transparency to expand and merge everything. ...

Your shape is an open path that's why it offset allover itself. try to close that path and it will solve the problem. In the two examples below, the right star is an opened path from the top while the left star is a closed one.

You don't Simply pulling or dragging something to straighten out a multi-curved path is not possible as far as I'm aware. You could move each and every anchor point, but then you'd be hard pressed to not alter the length of the curves as you moved points. You can get the length and draw a new path. Simply choose Window > Document Info, then in the ...

Many images which use textures or "grunge" appearances in Illustrator take advantage of Opacity Masks and embedded raster images. Even though Illustrator is vector at its core, there are times where utilizing the subtle variations in a raster image can be helpful. Trying to create distressed or mottled backgrounds is certainly one such case. First, find a ...

You can try 3D effect. This approach may help you understand the form of logo. Four steps: Create texture as a shape Convert it into symbol (drag and drop to symbols panel) Create a curve (flag cross-section) Effects → 3D → Extrude & Bevel → Map Art

Yes it can be done. However please understand that having a not splitting is a totally irrelevant technical specification as the PDF is allready split to pages. The data will be split many ways before the process is completed in any case because that's how processing works. Split to disk or memory is the same thing and writing a PDF is assembling pages. As ...

1) I am having a hard time understanding what you mean in question one. What do you mean they don't connect smoothly? Can you circle the area that you're talking about? If you think this is a stroke issue, you can always expand the stroke. Select the object and go to object - expand and make sure stroke is checked. 2) You can use a clipping mask. Create an ...

They are merely line art illustrations. You can easily do these with any number of applications. My choice would be Illustrator. There is no actual 3D there it's all just drawn. That being posted, you could use some CAD software and it's isometric or 3d tools, but that's not at all required.

All digital images are rectangular. All images. There's no such thing as a non-rectangular digital image. What you can do is create a transparent area within that rectangle. The transparency will make it seems as though there's an empty space when there actually isn't. Illustrator, by default has a transparent background (even though it looks white in the ...

Using Illustrator: Draw a rectangle with a certain color. Draw an ellipse behind it, with the same color but with transparency set to 0%. Select both and choose Object > Blend > Make. The default setting seems to be a bit tight. With the object still selected, choose Object > Blend > Blend Options. Switch Preview on to see what you are doing. Select ...

This is just a display issue related to the anti-aliasing algorithm most programs use to display vector graphics. The effect you see is not "real", and for most practical applications it is pointless to try to get rid of it. In printing and in exporting rasters these lines don't show. To prove it, you can go into Edit > Preferences > General... in ...

I understand that you drew something with just separate lines and now you're looking for a way to efficiently turn that mess of lines into clean filled closed shapes? If so, then you can select all of your lines that you want to convert then click on them using the Live Paint Bucket tool (keyboard shortcut 'K'). Now start painting inside the lines with any ...

They're probably thrown off by the pixel grid alignment, which is only noticable when you're using an artboard with a small pixel width and height and looking at it at a high zoom factor (yours is at 1200% !). Try turning the pixel grid alignment off (CTRL + A -> Uncheck the last checkbox in the transform panel) and then realign them centered to the ...

For anyone that has something like this happen to them. It turns out at this small scale the pixel grid was throwing my shapes off in a nice even pattern. Manually realigning the centers fixed it.

If you are using the fields in the Control Bar to change the size, ensure the 9-point origin is set to the center dot: If using Free Transform, hold down Option/Alt+Shift and drag a corner. Option/Alt makes the transformation from the center, and Shift ensures it stays proportional to the original.
