  1. Wayne, have a look at Photoline. That's also a very powerful image processor and compositing tool, but only requires OS 10.6: http://www.pl32.com
  2. Is it possible to use a selection for cropping in AP? (In PhotoShop this can be done via "Image/Crop".) Or is there an easy way to export only the selected part of a composition? Thanks Tom
  3. Ah sorry, I wasn't precise. The culprit is the "Expand stroke" command in the "Layer" menu, which I use quite often. If you draw a circle, give it an outline but no fill, and than call "Expand stroke", you'll get what I illustrated.
  4. AD is already an impressive tool... but it produces far too many points when converting shapes to curves. That makes it a poor choice for creating glyphs which shall be used on websites and for creating fonts. Example/attachment: Here I've drawn an ellipsis and converted it to curves. Illustrator needs 4 points for a circle, AD about 25. Hope, you will improve that...
  5. It would be very helpful, if dragging & dropping a picture from the "Stock" palette in AP would create a layer with the filename of the image. Currently it creates a layer that is just called "(Picture)" which makes it "a bit" difficult to find that image again in case you want to buy it... Thanks & best wishes Tom
  6. Hi, I've created a new document with 1024 x 640 px/96 dpi (see attachment) and a layer with the exact same size (via "transform" palette). Now I would expect the gray layer to cover the white background perfectly, but instead I do see a 1 px line flashing at varying borders (depending on the zoom level and the position of the stars). This happens in vector and pixel preview mode and at almost every zoom level (100 % included). Setting the document background to "transparent" brings some improvement, but doesn't fix this rendering/rounding (?) bug. bb Tom 1024x640.afdesign
  7. To me it seems that the "Auto" checkbox in the character palette (Cmt+T) doesn't work. When I set the kerning manually to let's say 50 % the white space in my text grows. Fine. But when I then enable "Auto" again, nothing happens. Instead I would expect the selected text to reset to normal (0 %) kerning.
  8. I'd just like to second what Matthias reported. "Expand Stroke" seems to use the objects initial thickness instead of its current state. And, in this context, there's a little UI bug too: * Select a simple object, e. g. a circle * Click on the upper "line" tool * The left "style" button will be "glowing" (focused?) – always (In contrast, the "line" tool at the right hand side displays the buttons state correctly)
