Expanding Document left a black band

Recommended Posts

I expanded the document to create a different aspect ration and a black band appeared in the image (where there was previously transparency). Note that when I exported the image to a PNG, the black band was not present in the image.

The original file was an EPS file.

Steps to recreate:

  1. Open the EPS file
  2. Open the Document Settings... dialog 
  3. Entered new vertical dimension to correct aspect ratio
  4. Selected transparent background
  5. Clicked on OK
