  1. The Asset Pack contains 80 clean vector assets. Almost all of the assets are set up for easy tiling. They are all solid objects with no stroke so you can easily apply any fills, gradients or fx to the objects. The PDF has some more info and lists all of the individual assets.


    The assets are broken into six sub groups:
    100mm screentone blends (7 assets)
    60mm screentone dot tints (19 assets)
    300mm screentone blends (6 assets)
    300mm screentone dot tints (19 assets)
    300mm screentone reverse dot tints (10 assets)
    300mm screentone line tints (19 assets)

    That's right! 
    But you can help yourself and activate the symbol manually!


    Thanks for that answer. Was just about to ask the same question. I wonder if the default node toolbar icon should be the one with the pullout for the point transform instead of the original one.

    Thanks for the reply.

    Is this something that can be added into a list for new feature requests? I think it'd be really useful. It is available in photoshop (hence why I'm used to it...)


    I agree that this would be useful. Many times I like to keep the darkened area very dark. It would be great to have a % option next to the check box.

    BTW, 3 colour Pantone job tends to be more expensive than standard 4-colour CMYK job, which is more expensive than simple B&W job..

    Agreed! A print job with 3 spot colors plus black will be pricey.

    If they are looking to save costs I would probably have one version of the logo that can be done in 1 color  and then you could also provide a full color logo for 4-color printing or if they want to use it on the web.

  5. I would probably just have one artboard for all the bills and then have all of the elements that are the same between them at the bottom in one (or a few) layers.

    Then I would have a separate layer for each of the denominations where you can have the specific $ amounts and any specific pictures.

    If you need to change any of the base features you just need to adjust them once. If you really want separate art boards using Symbols like @Alfred suggested is probably the way to go. There are some video tutorials on symbols on their YT/Vimeo channel.

    Ah. . .got there in the end.

    I removed the layer with the "soft light" then merged the other two layers - it went as expected. I then brought the soft light layer back in and everything is now fine.

    Thanks for your suggestion - I really needed to merge those three layers because the next step for those towers is rather tricky and it will be a lot easier now that they are merged.

    Thanks again.

    Glad it worked out! I usually like to keep copies of the unmerged layers just in case I need to go back to them for any reason. Good luck!

  7. Are you trying to align Text to the left or align different objects to the left?


    If it's text: you can just add 8px to the left indent in the paragraph settings.

    If it's objects you can align them to the left and then nudge them over 8px with the arrow keys. You can set the nudge distance in the preferences in the Tools section.

  8. It would be great to have an option to let us turn on/off a "scale with object" for an entire group/layer. This would cover all things like line widths, layer effects, individual corner rounding, etc.

    If you've ever had a complex object built but forgot to turn on/off scale options it can be time consuming to go into every object and adjust the setting. A way to set it for an entire group and/or layer would be a great new workflow enhancement.

    Thanks, Carl.

    I was making copies and then baking some of the objects already but I was hoping to avoid the converting to curves on those corners to keep them adjustable. It would actually be nice if there was a way to set the scaling on a whole group/layer as well. Maybe they'll add an option for that.

  10. If you are in Photo I would just add a fill layer and place it at the bottom of the layers and pick any grey that will work for you. If you are in Designer I would put a rectangle at the bottom of the layers and fill it with a grey as well. You can lock either of these so you don't move or select them. Just turn off those layers before exporting or printing the final files.

  11. It would be great if we can get the HEX input/listing on all of the color sliders. I know it shows up on the RGB Hex setting but if I'm working in one of the other slider color spaces I need to constantly switch back to the RGB Hex to read a HEX value. It would be a great time saver. We could also have an option to have it appear or not appear on each of the color sliders in case there are people who do not need it to be shown.
