  1. I've got a problem with employees losing files because they did a "Save as" quickly and then went back to find the file and it was somewhere completely different than they thought, or there are multiple copies with different changes in each.

    Is there a way or a feature that could be added where "Save As" starts the dialog box in the folder that it is saved in rather than anywhere else?

    I tried to search if this had been posted before but the results of clicking the button says "forbidden"

  2. Hello Callum,

    I tried disabling Metal compute and it still happens.

    I have narrowed down how to reproduce the crash. If you have more than one stroke applied in appearance and you select more than one object to expand stroke, it seems to crash every time. 

    I've attached a file showing the demonstration that crashes for me each time I have more than one object selected for expand stroke.

    thanks!

  3. I don't see a problem with your initial PDF. The fonts are subsetted correctly as far as I can tell. How are other people receiving your files? I have had Outlook damage files regularly that people send to me, and there is a way around that MS's way of proprietary embedding. The original files are fine though.

    If you can give people the files through another source such as a different thumbdrive or cloud drive, do they have the same problems?

    As for the newer screenshot with square characters, I have seen that with fonts that are not allowed to be embedded. In that case, convert all the fonts to outlines or raster when exporting.

  4. I setup large artwork for a school building front glass for perforated vinyl. The way I set it up was each window was it's own box and I merged them together using the Add function:

    Then I could work with the artwork as one piece in side the groups of boxes but it wouldn't show in between the windows at the frames or the bricks. I could also simulate the semi-transparency that the perforated vinyl looks like.

    I got the approval and the artwork a few weeks and was easily able to split the artwork using divide function. Each window then had the artwork as it's windows shown. I then could make each one have their own artboard by using the "convert object to artboard" and then each one could be named, exported and ripped and kept in order:

    It's been several weeks and I have the next set ready to go for printing. Either I have forgotten my steps or 2.11 is broken as the function of splitting them apart now makes each blank as if it doesn't have the artwork in it like this:

    Is there a way to download 2.1 and try it again? Am I missing a step that I was doing just fine several weeks ago?

    thanks for you help!
