Hairline border around embedded documents with transparent edges

Recommended Posts

To reproduce:

1. In AP, add a mask to a light-colored JPG so it has transparent edges. Save as an AP doc.

2. Drag the AP doc's Finder icon onto a dark-colored AD doc.



AP doc appears as an embedded doc in the AD doc.

It is bordered by a thin light-colored line.

The border hairline is actually the color of the original image behind the mask.

The border line remains despite zooming or resizing, and appears in exported JPGs.



Apply a rectangular vector mask to the embedded AP doc, inset just slightly from the object's edges.

Apart from this, wonderful software!


Thanks for looking into this,
