  1. Nearly one year later, I still thing this would be great functions to be implemented... ;-) Anyway, since one year, a lot of improvements have been made to tihs great piece of software and I am looking forward to see where we are in one year from now!
  2. Thanks, I will do that.
  3. I already posted this in the questions-section, but as there seems no solution to this I will just post it again here as a feature request: If I place a TIFF-Image without scaling it, it will not be placed in it’s original dimensions but scaled to fit the document’s DPI. For example: If I have an Image with 10x10 cm at 1000 dpi and place it in an AD document with the document resolution set to 200 dpi the image will be placed in a size of 50x50 cm to fit the document resolution. I think, it should be the other way (or at lest you should be able to toggle this behaviour). Normaly, placing an image in a document, I would like to preserve it’s original dimensions. Regardless, which dpi it would have after that. Any other DTP-Software I know behaves this way. For example: If I place a 10x10 cm TIFF in Illustrator, it will always be this size by default. Adjusting the document dpi to the dpi of the image can’t be the solution. What, if you have different Images with different dpi that you would like to place in their original dimensions in one AD-document? P.S.: I just did some testing with other import-formats. TIFF, JPG and PSD all behave this way, EPS results in different dimensions but still not the original dimensions and PDF was the only file-format resulting in a 10x10cm image being placed in exactly this dimensions regardless of the dpi. At least the EPS should be sized to it’s bounding-box dimensions by default, don’t you think so?
  4. Strange, that two simple grey squares in the corners of the document lead to an unuseable PDF. Normaly I should be able to place anything I want at the edges of a document without destroying it, right? :-) The reason for this two squares was, that the design will be printed on vinyl and cut out with a plotter. These two marks should also be plotted, as a little help to allign the sticker on the laser cutted piece of metal. Printed cropmarks would not be helpful in this case. But unless the issue is fixed, I will try not to draw anything in the edges of my designs... No. This is not really practicable... I guess I have to stay with Adobe as a second option for a little more time...
  5. As this is part of something I made for a client, I would not feel very good, publishing it here. But I will try to recreate the "scenario" in a new file and post this one here.
  6. EPS looks even worse... :(
  7. After exporting to PDF, the Bevel/Emboss Effect I used looks wrong... Have a look at the eyebrows, for example... Here is how in looks in AD: And this way it looks as a PDF:
  8. 2 videos to show the "artboard resize issue"... with artboard.mov without artboard.mov
  9. Of course I can do so and I am already doing it this way, becuase there seems to be no other... :-) But is this behavior the logical way? Others (Adobe for example) seem to have an other opinion.... And why does AD handle different file-formats differently? What is the logic in it, that only PDF is placed in it’s original size? That’s crazy... I just opened a new document and it does behave like it should. But in the document where I stumbled across this problem, in the document setup everything is greyed out and I only can change the DPI what results in a re-scaling of the artboard... O.K.: Just realized that this behaviour (everythin greyed out, rescaling when changing DPI) only occurs, when I create a document with an artboard. Documents without an artboard will let me change the DPI without changing dimensions. Why isn’t this possible with artboards?
  10. If I place a TIFF-Image without scaling it, it will not be placed in it’s original dimensions but scaled to fit the document’s DPI. For example: If I have an Image with 10x10 cm at 1000 dpi and place it in an AD document with the document resolution set to 200 dpi the image will be placed in a size of 50x50 cm to fit the document resolution. I think, it should be the other way (or at lest you should be able to toggle this behaviour). Normaly, placing an image in a document, I would like to preserve it’s original dimensions. Regardless, which dpi it would have after that. Any other DTP-Software I know behaves this way. For example: If I place a 10x10 cm TIFF in Illustrator, it will always be this size by default. Adjusting the document dpi to the dpi of the image can’t be the solution. What, if you have different Images with different dpi that you would like to place in their original dimensions in one AD-document? If there is already a solution to this and I just missed it - please let me know... :-) P.S.: I just did some testing with other import-formats. TIFF, JPG and PSD all behave this way, EPS results in different dimensions but still not the original dimensions and PDF was the only file-format resulting in a 10x10cm image being placed in exactly this dimensions regardless of the dpi. At least the EPS should be sized to it’s bounding-box dimensions by default, don’t you think so? One more thing: Changing the document DPI should not result in rescaling the atrboard. For example: Changing a 10 x 10 cm artboard at 300 dpi to a resoulution of 1200 dpi should not change the size of the artboard to 2,5 x 2,5 cm. Or at least the user should be able to choose if he wants to do so. Again: If this should already be posible and I just missed it - sorry... Still learning... It’s hard to delete 20 years of Freehand, Illustrator, etc. out of my mind... :-)
  11. Cool! Thank you... Have to learn a lot new shortcuts... :-)
  12. I want to place a scanned TIFF-Image in it’s original dimensions (4x4 cm). AD places it in a much bigger size. Of course I could resize it to it original size in AD, but this is not really how it should be, right? InDesign, Illustrator, Freehand,... All these programms can place images without changing their dimensions. Maybe I could adjust the document resolution to the resoulution of the scanned TIFF, but this would also only be a workaround. And what, if I have images with different DPI that I want to place in their original dimensions?
  13. Is there a way to access an object pasted inside? I know, I can access it in the layers palette but I was searching for an easy way like Freehand had it. The Paste inside function works pretty much like Freehand did, what I like very much, but in Freehand, you could "uncut" it from inside (I only have the german version, so I can’t say what this funtions was called in english). You also could ALT-Click an object pasted inside and (for example) easily move or resize it...
