comment Illustrator now refuses to draw lines with stroke weight below 1 pt
@Scott The value in the box says it applies to new shapes, not the current one. Unchecking the box did not affect the current shape for me.

comment Illustrator now refuses to draw lines with stroke weight below 1 pt
Just to add to this, I specifically created a new document that had the Align to Pixel Grid setting unchecked, but when I copy-pasted something from a document that DID have Align to Pixel Grid checked... it followed the object. The only work around I could figure out was to delete and recreate the object.

comment How do I use designs in a stacked bar chart with precise statistics?
Right. I ended up just rounding to whole numbers for the project but (iconography/subject matter depending) I can see getting as meticulous as rounding to the nearest quarter or even the nearest eighth. Anyway, thanks for the neat idea!

Heh, I love how the two best solutions here involve not touching Illustrator's chart feature at all. Time for them to upgrade that, me thinks.

Clever, but to be technically precise, you'd need Illustrator to be aware of the gaps so that, say, 19.9 and 20.1 don't both look like 20. I suppose you could fudge the numbers in the table?

And if I'm using the wrong tool for the job, tell me that.

If you can change your answer to match the Clipping Match instructions, I'll accept it - that's exactly what I wanted.

I don't think I understand. I don't want to modify the raster image at all. I want to make a frame for the image. Like, when you mask it such that the image is able to be moved around independent of the frame you give it. Apologize for not knowing the terminology.

This doesn't quite do what I want. I basically want to cookie-cutter the raster image. It's important that it be the image and not a transparency mask over the image.
