My set up is: Mac, running 10.6.8, using CS5 & Powerpoint 2011
Wondered if anyone can help. I've drawn a load of flat icons in Illustrator as a client wants to use them in their powerpoint presentation.
Each icon has be "united" using the pathfinder tool so it's just one object, I have to place a transparent box behind this and using the pathfinder tool again "Minus Front". Then i export file as an emf file ready for powerpoint.
In powerpoint I insert the file and I can change the colour using the bucket BUT i get a white box surrounding the icon which i can't get rid of.
Minus Front? I'm not sure I understand why that is necessary. Do you insert the EMF as an image? What bucket are you using in PowerPoint (which ribbon tab is it on)?
