    I've been using AD since it was first published and been a regular participant in this forum. I have used AD to create the calendar shown below for a crowd funding project. The calendar feature 12 my paintings. here is a link.
  5. Duplicating would appear to be the best choice for me. I have done this before but by accident! I started out with a load of pdf pages and wanted to add more using AD. I was able to make the existing pdf pages into artboards and then as I progressed with more pages I 'copied' a previous page and deleted its content and added new content also I added a page number. When I finished my work space contained 40 artboards corresponding to the layers. If I needed to edit one page I just zoomed in to it and edit it. This may not have been the most efficient way to have done this but I did get a good result. However with the above advice I could do it again only more efficiently.
  6. I want to create a multi-page document in AD. How do I create a master artboard so that I can use a layer for each artboard page?
  7. I think I will find it easier to manually adjust the printer until I'm happy with the printed image compared to the monitor. I have a calibration colour chart on file so I will use that for comparing the adjustments although a colour photo might be easier to evaluate.
  8. I'm not very good at this sort of thing so this is how I would like to see it work. Everything I do is either viewed on the computer or I want to print it on my inkjet printer or send the file to a commercial printer. To keep it simple what is the best way for me to set up my computer so that what I print resembles what I see on the screen? I do have a customised colour profile for my Epson printer that I use in Phtoshop but even that seems to have gone awry. This may be due to the inks I use as I have swapped different kinds I'm currently printing a full colour calendar sample for subsequent commercial printing but in order to get the colour right I'm manually adjusting the ink on my printer. I had to reduce the magenta from the default '0' to -16 (-24 is the min) to reduce the redness of the image. Perhaps someone could me more specific advice?
  9. Thanks for this and I'm happy to check it out but how do I get to it from AD?
  10. Is there a way to choose it or any other profile like in PhotoShop?
  11. I have a custom colour profile that I use with PhotoShop. How do I use it with AD when I print?
  12. I sat here for a few minutes sure that I could come back with a witty reply but I can't cos I've got a headache!
  13. ...and you haven't helped either!
  14. This has given me a headache and I haven't one of those for about 40 years!
