Choosing or getting the printhouse to select the right stock is important, different papers (and inks/print method) get different results, there is a minimum visible print size, but I doubt that was the issue - in all cases get a proof of the print job and make the supplier stick to it, they dont want you to be disappointed so offering you the help you ...

Whenever we perform boolean operations on two objects a single new object will be created. This new object will have it's own properties for fill and stroke on the whole object (left side in the image below). There is no object having different fill and stroke properties from the inside or the outside. To overcome this in the example given I worked with the ...

You can use the Anchor Point Tool (Shift+C) from the Pen Tool Drop down. If you click on the point with this tool and hold shift whilst dragging, it will give you even handles.

I think Bart Arondson is right: you probably have way too many samples/vector points. Let's say you're plotting every sample of an mp3 with a 44.1kHz sample rate. This means that for every second of audio, you will end up with 44,100 vector points. One second of audio would result in a vector point every 6.3mm on a 7 meter banner. Longer audio would only ...

You could use a stroke, then use Object → Expand to create the lines? Here’s a speedrun attempt at it. :) But, if you actually want to snap the control points of the curve to a certain place, and have them both match, you can use guides. I don't think that's going to give you a nice curve though.

I found the solution I was in search of. The Inkscape equivalent to "Expanding the text" is "Object to Path (CTRL + SHIFT + C). I used this command for all text in the logo, saved, and it renders correctly in my HTML now.

I think there is no way to automate these tasks, since those worn out scales in the pictures will be every time on a more or less different spot in the picture. Maybe, if it's +- in the same spot and the background of the picture is solid color e.g. white AND all those pictures are taken from the same distance, using the same lens and settings, you could ...

Stretching the bleep out of a jpg is a pretty feasible technique in this case, since this is a blurry image to begin with. You are going to see some banding if you stretch it too much, but there are things you could do to try and avoid that. Here's the image you provided, stretched to viewport siz. On my 1440p screen res, the banding goes slightly over ...

If it's for the cause of simplifying paths, I find Inkscape does a much better job then Illustrator. You would need to export it to svg from Illustrotor, import it into inkscape and I suggest you try it one path first: select it and hit CTRL+L. It will tell how many 'nodes' it found and how many are left after simplifying. (Or you can use the menu: Path --> ...

Simple steps for that file... although that file isn't problematic here. First fix the type counters on the arch by filling them with white. Then . . . Select All Object > Expand Pathfinder Panel > Merge Click a white filled object (with the Direct Select Tool - white arrow) Select > Same > Fill & Stroke Hit Delete Draw a no fill, no stroke ...

Link! (aka Place) Embedding images into your InDesign document will create a much larger .indd file, especially with as many images as you are going to be working with - your file will be MASSIVE. This can sometimes lead to your document taking forever to open, if it opens at all. It will sometimes just cause InDesign to crash, upon trying to open the ...

I would make a rectangle the same size as the artboard and turn it into a clipping mask. To do this, group together all the layers you wish to trim by selecting them and entering command+g. Next, make a rectangle with the same dimensions as your artboard, and center horizontally and vertically. With the rectangle layer in front, select both objects, enter ...

Pretty sure you can simply ignore the Fontello error. Works fine when I give it a go. Feel free to download the Sketch & SVG file that I used here http://ge.tt/8LyJbb12 (it also includes the resulting Fontello zip file) UPDATE: just tried it with your Sketch file, all you have to do is convert the lines to strokes: Layer / Paths / Vectorize ...

I wrote a Javascript to do this; see https://forums.adobe.com/thread/735457 for a description (direct download link: http://www.jongware.com/binaries/puzzlify.zip). After running the script, you end up with separate puzzle pieces, which you can move around at will. The script assumes a single object or group is selected before running. It asks for a few ...

Workflow depends on lots of things... When you resize a frame in InDesign, the content is unchanged. This may seem counter-intuitive, but the only thing that changes is an internal descriptor which controls the dimensions of said content. For example, if you have a raster 5 megapixel image, it is 5 megapixels regardless of frame size. Thus, there is an ...

Set type. Draw a box behind it Select box and type Use the Shear Tool - click once on one side of the box to set the origin, then click-drag at the other side of the box, hold the Shift down and drag up or down. There are a few other methods you could use, from the Free Transform Tool to Type on a Path to Envelopes and transform effects, but this is ...
