  1. Quite true. This would have been quite easy if I wanted the dots to be uniform. Truth be told, I prefer the dots to look funky and different. Going in and changing each circle, when I may have 100 of them, would probably drive me -- well, dotty.
  2. Thank you all for your input. To answer MED, I created the whole file in AD. The advantage of using the pencil tool, gently stamping dots on my tablet, is speed. The circle tool would take forever. And, as I have noted above, the vast majority of them work - with virtually identical characteristics. I appreciate the time you have all taken to try to solve this puzzle.
  3. Actually - correction - they did not print accurately.
  4. For the substitute dots, I copy/paste a nearby dot. Dots consist of two nodes (caps) very close together. Often the nodes sit on top of one another. In your example, if you select break curve and pull on one, you'll get a curve instead of a circle. I hope this is helpful. Many thanks for contributing! The substitute dots printed on another piece. I should have thought of it sooner.
  5. Thank you. When they print as specks, they're only printing part of the dot shape. I realize they are small, but I feel that they still should print as well as show up on the monitor. Might this be a bug?
  6. GabrielM, thank you for asking. Attached is an example. I would love to know what you think. MANY THANKS!! R C - R, thank you also for your input. I'm working at 300dpi and all dots were created at the same time with the pencil tool. I have substituted new dots, and - although they show in zoom, they are printing as specks, not full dots. dot mystery.afdesign
  7. Very small layers (9.5 px dots in my case) vanish from view unless I zoom in. They also don't print from jpegs or pdfs of my file. This feels like a bug. Any solutions?
  8. OK, I'm a newbie -- then what?
