  1. It looks better. The first one is like this (it's more evident when looking at small files or thumbnail to check the overal grey: the top is a lighter grey): New one: Perhaps there should be one more "I" in the corner... the problem with perception is you spend a lot of time fine tuning... strangely, (I didn't count the I), the top left and bottom right corner seem better.
  2. It is possible, but: You've already draw an illustration: you select an object and convert its colour to global colour. One done, you need to select all the objects or stroke or part that use this same colour and attribute this global colour, since if you select them, you'll see that they use the "old" colour, when it wasn't global. Next steps: doing the same with all the colours used in this illustration... You begin a new illustration: each time you use a new colour, you convert it to global colour (don't forget to attribute this global colour to the selected object). It's easier to use global colours in a new or simple document, it'll take longer if you need to use them in complexe illustrations with a lot of colours or objects, since you'll have to select each one of them to apply the new colours (it won't be done automagically).
  3. Same at the middle, and the top will be farther appart, the bottom tighter, but it will "balance" (do the counterpart?) optically.
  4. I suspect you've got different DPI settings for the 2 documents, but if you set the rules to pixels, you'll have the same amount.
  5. Optically, you need to have the tracking adjusted for the characters at the angle, so the middle of the characters is the same distance that between other characters.
  6. It's not possible, but it would be nice to be able to save gradient maps and load gradients in gradient maps! You should ask this in the features' part of the forum.
  7. For this, you need to make your swatches global (with add global colour in the menu or making it global right-clicking on your swatch). But you'll have to apply again this global colour to each of your objects. It's best to begin with creating different global colours in a document's palette and using them (or choosing Pantone colours), and modifying them later to specific colours.
  8. You can already do it:
  9. Since you can dowload those gradients as SVG, it's easier to open those files in AD or AP, swith to the Gradients palette and add them.
  10. Nice! And an interesting point is we don't need to switch to the colour picker to pick a colour, we just need to click in the image! But we need the gradient panel to adjust middle point in gradients like the one in my previous post.
  11. Nice tutorial @melior64 But it can be easier if you copy the gradient image from the site, and use the option File > New from clipboard. With this, you've got a file of the same larger as the gradient, you only need to enlarge you canvas' height to add a fill layer below. This way, you'll be able to easily pick the colours where they change. Once you've got a file, you just need to paste another gradient at the top and modify the gradient. Another tip with the gradient tool: don't use the gradient panel, but the Gradient tool and draw your gradient on the fill layer (AP, or a rectangle in AD) from left to right. You can add dots for colours on your gradient at the right position and pick the colour once the dot is selected.
  12. Did you tried to open the PDF in APub to check if the SVG file is rasterized to low resolution or if it's vectors?
  13. Perhaps restarting APub or the computer is good and flush the memory? I needed to do this with complexes scripts in ID in books of 24 parts to create particular indexes.
  14. When modifying hte opacity of a colour, the swatch/round/rectangle that shows the colour should display the colour at 100%, not lighter (colour panel) or darker (gradient panel).
  15. There's different options or item we can fill with a color (objects, fill layers, effects), but each time it's the opacity we can modify. I should banish the term "fill" until it's resolved
  16. If you don't want anything fancy with dots, etc. the simplest way would be to use the underscores _______________ to get your lines, perhaps lowering the baseline, and if you don't want it to be multiple characters, you can give it a really large width in the character panel. When in six month you'll want to modify this text, you'll have fun remembering what you need to do or avoid... But why make it simple when we can do otherwise
  17. You won't be able to do it this way, but: You can open your images in APhoto ans save/overwrite them after converting them to CMYK (and APub will notice and ask to update them in the resources manager), for this, you need to modify/dupplicate your images, or import/replace with CMYK version, or you can convert them while exporting to PDF (check the export settings), you don't need to modify or dupplicate your images this way.
  18. Were you able to copy-paste all the text from @adreamer 's file? It seem I can do this with part of the 2 visible pages, and paste it in a text editor, or word processor, but I can't paste all the copied text (and APub hang some time after if I copy all the text, no problem with part of it). Did you tried with less text? Perhaps there's a bug or problems with some characters in part of the text in this file.
  19. That simple: Sibellius export the PDF with fonts: if openend in AD or APub, the display should depend of the fonts being installed, Microsoft will convert all to curves (but the main title): it'll look nice in AD or APub, but you won't be able to modify more than the title, Cute PDF is a mix: notes are converted to curves, but text stay as text, you should be able to modify it. The problem is text position is messed, and look like a sentence instead of words here and there. The more interesting option is the Microsoft one.
  20. If you don't need vector, you can for example write your text in black, dupplicate this layer, add the stroke in a flashy colour, and rasterize the layer. Next, you select the black in the letters and you delete it. You'll be able to add effects to this "stroke".
  21. Using tabs and character styles will be cleaner than pasting lines in your text if you need to reflow later. And for complexe forms, you can use special font for adress, dates, etc.: http://www.sterpin.net/casesaremplir.htm
  22. If it's out of the canvas, it seems logical. Why don't you copy this group and create a new file from clipboard for exporting it?
  23. Sorry, effectivelly, that's more visible with all the examples. There are various "fill" options in APhoto, but the result is the same each time. Perhaps they'll work on this soon since they need to correct different points about transparency and other problems.
  24. Thanks, I hope @LibreTraining or some other Fonts Gurus will help with this one Oups, I clicked too fast, it's the ligatures (tt and ti) that aren't reconized when copied: Des�ni Sco�
