Illustrator :: 3D Letters With A Black Inside Stroke - Adjusting Cap / Limit?

Aug 14, 2013

I've got some letters with a black inside stroke. These are 3D letters, therefore the stroke must be in the inside otherwise it spills out the edges if I put it outside or centered.
I've tried adjusting the cap/limit and all other options on the stroke menu without luck How can I fix these corner errors? I'm on Illustrator CS5.

Feb 24, 2013

I have a bit of a problem with apple script, I'm creating a Text item and setting the stroke to 0.4pt then i want the stroke miter limit to be set to 2 but it wont work i get :-
Adobe Illustrator got an error: Can’t set properties of text frame 1 of layer 1 of document 1 to {stroke miter limit:2}. (error -10006) but im am able to apply a stroke miter limit of 2 on a path item, is there a way of converting the text frame to a path item then applying the stroke miter limit to it.

     tell application "Adobe Illustrator"
          set ticketItem to make new text frame in theDoc with properties {contents:{"Some Text"}, position:{(35.7 + posX) * 2.834645, (173.5 - posY) * 2.834645}}

ive also tryed putting convert to paths ticketItem in the script which converts the text to paths but the stroke miter limit still dont work.

Illustrator :: Placing Image Inside Text But Want Letters To Have Outlines?

Sep 13, 2013

I'm trying to create a logo whose letters have an image in them - which I've got figured out (turning letters to outlines, creating clipping mask with image). The trouble is, once the image is inside the letters, I can't figure out how to then give the letters a thin stroke outline. Is this possible? The image I've placed is high contrast black and white, so when I create the clipping mask, large chunks of the letters disappear.

Illustrator :: Align Stroke To Inside Of Corner

Jul 17, 2013

I have a bent path, standard 90 degree corner.  Illustrator CC is not allowing me to align the stroke to the inside of the path/corner.  The inside and outside options are grayed out when this path is selected.
Of course, I can create a shape and then all three options for path alignment are usable.  But if I cut a gap into the path of that shape it instantly reverts to a center aligned stroke.  I can create what I need manually.  But this is a time addition.

Illustrator :: AI Not Allowing To Add Stroke That Aligns To Inside?

Feb 10, 2014

I'm working on a poster and for a special printing process am supposed to add a 2 point inside stroke to the type. However, Illustrator has that option grayed out in the appearance panel when I try to add it to the type even when I create outlines.

Illustrator :: How To Add A Stroke To Inside Of Compound Path

Aug 27, 2013

I'm having trouble making adjustments to my compound path/shape, as I'd like to outline the inside of the shape with a stroke - but this doesn't seem possible as the stroke always surrounds the outside too.

So: I've got a simple rectangle with white fill, with a rectangle-window hole cut out of it using the compound path action so you can see the layers beneath. Now I want to stroke the window hole, but NOT the outside of the entire rectangle. I'd be happy to split the shape up and tried various options like divide, edit in isolation mode, expand (button is greyed out), all the pathfinders - but none of them allow me to do this only to the inside part of the path.
How I can perform this action? I'm working in CS5 and CS6.

Illustrator :: How To Add Inside / Outside Stroke To Clipping Mask

Apr 1, 2013

I'm pretty new to Illustrator so there's a chance this is a stupid question, but I'm pretty stumped on this. If I have a path with a stroke that is set to either inside or outside, it disappears if I draw something inside of it to convert it into a clipping mask. The stroke shows up again if I align it to center, but even this seems to have some quirks as it won't display multiple strokes.  After searching the web for a bit this is the best description/example I've been able to find for this problem:

Anyside strokes or multiple strokes to work correctly in this scenario? If not, is there a logical reason for this or is there a bug?

Illustrator :: Black Background Affect Letters On Top

Jun 10, 2013

I am, using Ai (CS6). I've produced a poster I'm fairly happy with, but black background is affecting red and green type on top of the black...

Possibly one hint towards a solution is that I have one photo with a transparency and the lettering that is on top of that transparency isn't affected by the black background.

The transparency was started by creating a cut-out of a mugshot in Ps CS6, using the magnetic tool, previously creating a transparent background layer.

Anyway, the long and the short is, if a tiff photo transparent background can keep out the black background, how can I create a transparent layer with similar properties.

Illustrator :: Why Align Stroke Inside And Outside Path Not Working Correctly

Feb 11, 2013

I'm trying to add a stroke that's aligned to the outside of my path.  It appears to be offsetting the stroke *and* moving anchor points at the same time.  It does the same kind of thing when I align the stroke to the inside.  It is fine when i align the stroke to center. The one that is offset to the top-left is the align-inside one.

Illustrator :: Inking A Sketch With Calligraphic Brush That Has Black Stroke And White Fill

Feb 16, 2014

I am using CS5.5, and I was watching a video of someone using CS6  inking a sketch with a calligraphic brush that has black stroke and white fill. I am trying to do the same thing, but every time I select the fill color and start using the brush it goes back to "none" as the fill option. Is this a CS6 exclusive feature?

Photoshop :: Creating A Gleam Inside Of Letters

Jul 8, 2013

I've always been stumped with how to do this so thought I'd post it here.  I've typed up some text and then rasterized it.  Then I created a blank layer above it, highlighted the text below, then made the blank layer active and painted a shiny gleam over on the layer.  See below: 
However, when I move the gleam layer, it doesn't just float over and within the letters below it.  I obviously know why and that's because the gleam layer is above the text layer:
So basically what I want to be able to do is when move that gleam layer, I want the gleam to float over the logo but stay within the letters so it looks like the logo has a shine over it.  If I knew how to do this, I could create animated GIFs and even export the files into Premiere or whatever.
Tell me the best way to do this in PSD CS4?

Photoshop :: Adjusting Image To Compensate For Alpha Black Overlay

Jun 12, 2013

There is a touchscreen monitor in my car.It allows custom background wallpapers to be loaded via USB.The touchscreen automatically adds what would appear to be about a 25% alpha black layer in FRONT of the image so the touchscreen controls and icons are clearly visible.The problem is, I don't know what values I'm supposed to adjust on my image in order to get it to look the same way it does on my computer screen.Would you adjust the brightness?  Contrast?Or is this simply not possible because the ~25% alpha black tint is placed OVER the wallpaper?

Photoshop :: Inside Stroke Layer Style And Opacity?

Illustrator :: Draw Inside Not Working Inside Expanded Shape

Dec 3, 2010

I really enjoy this new draw inside feature in Illustrator. But, I find that it does not always work. It seems to be grayed out sometimes. For example, I have drawn a shape with my Wacom tablet using a blush.  I then converted it to a shape instead of keeping it a stroke by expanding it. But it will not allow me to now draw inside of it, even though it is a shape.

Illustrator :: Maintaining Stroke Weight When Changing Path To Brush Stroke?

Sep 12, 2013

Is there a way or an option I am missing to convert my regular paths to a path stroked with a brush profile,while maintining the proper stroke width?
For instance, I have a regular line with a stroke of 5 and then add a brush profile, which then converts the original stroke to whatever the brush was made at.

Illustrator :: How To Stroke Behind Other Stroke But In Front Of Fill

Jan 4, 2013

I have a shape with a black stroke and green fill.  I have a white line segment over it.  How do I get it so that the end of the line segment doesn't show over the black stroke of the object?  If I try to put the line segment behind the object, then the object fill hides it completely.
I'm new to illustrator and I've tried to search for an answer but I don't know the best way to accomplish what I want to do.  Seems like some combination of transparency or knockout groups and I've read a bit about this and can't figure out what I need to do.

Photoshop :: Create A Black Stroke Around Image

Feb 17, 2009

I have the trial version for my laptop (windows), and we use a Mac at school. Anyway, I have an assignment to do and it involves creating a 1 pt. black stroke around an image. I found where it says "stroke" but it is either grayed out at top under 'edit', or down on the right 'add a layer style' I hit stroke and nothing changed on my photo. I have looked at the Help menu and tried what they said and still the image won't change. Please help! This assignment is due tonight (I wasn't able to get Photoshop to unzip and open on my computer all weekend which is why it took this long).

Illustrator Scripting :: Apply Current Fill Color To Stroke Then Adjust That Stroke Color's Build?

Apr 9, 2013

I'm trying to figure out a way to automate a simple, yet repetative process I do countless times a day. Ideally, I'd like to tie it to a keystroke to speed up my workflow.
I work on line art and colorways for footwear, so the way I'm coloring these shapes and strokes break apart the different materials and pieces of the shoe.
While coloring line art, I work with Pantone spot colors as fills for closed path objects. I then have to manually apply that same color to the stroke, set the stroke to 0.5px weight, convert that spot stroke color to CMYK, and add 15% to the K value.
I found some code in an older post for applying the actively selected object's fill color to the stroke, but I'm having but I'm having trouble with the next step of figuring out how to take that spot stroke color and convert it to a CMYK build that I can then add 15% black to. Is this something that's even possible? I've spent about an hour playing with the script and have only had luck matching the fill color or turning the stroke white.
