Illustrator :: Any Way To Improve Accuracy Of Charts In CS3?

Apr 20, 2010

I've recently come up againast a wall in Illustrator. I'm producing a large, detailed pie chart, and the fine slices aren't being shown accurately.
For example, if you prodoce a simple 3-slice pie chart using: 99.5, 0.1, 0.4 .... the smallest slice will be lost. It looks as though Illustrator will not show anything under a quarter of a per cent.

Illustrator :: Pie Charts With Decimal

Feb 5, 2014

I must make some Pie Charts at work, and the data is in a Excel file. Of course all Values are in decimal for a 100% value:

Now i realized, that Illustrator can't work with decimal? But that's wrong! The values are exactly 100 (%). Where the gap comes from? So i goggled it and find out, that this bug exists since CS2 (i have CC)! The wrong solution is to clear manually all decimal commata:

Then it works as usual, but this workflow is not a pro solution!A coworker made this datafiles in hours, and then another worker delete this again?

Illustrator :: CC Errors Reopening Documents With Pie Charts

Sep 25, 2013

I created some sample pie charts for a client - had no problems with the document while it was open. It saved fine, I even saved it as an EPS. However, when I try to reopen the document, it gives me an error (whether I open the illustrator or eps file).

I haven't been able to track down the reason for it. It has 6 sample pie charts on it. The text and labels are simply text or lines drawn on a separate layer. The "hole" is simply a white circle on top of the chart. There isn't really anything complicated with it, so I'm not sure where the error is. I've already recreated this but had the same problem again.
This does not happen for all pie charts - there is another file I created with other samples, and I've been able to reopen that. The odd thing is that even though I get the error, it seems to partially open the file - only a few of the elements show up.

Illustrator :: Why Excel Charts Copied To CS 5.1 Now Coming In As Pictures

Mar 18, 2013

I've been creating charts in Excel 2004 for Mac for years and copying them into Illustrator. They have always previously pasted into Illustrator as vectors illustrations. I've created hundreds of charts in Excel before and copied them to Illustrator to "dress them up" for reports with no problems. I just created a chart in Excel 2004 for Mac and copied it to Illustrator and it came in as a picture. This is the first time I have ever had this happen with an Excel chart.

Illustrator :: Draw 3 Dimensional Scatter Bubble Charts

Jul 8, 2012

I wish to create a scatter bubble chart where the position of the bubble is dependent on the values of the X and Y axis, the size of the bubble is dependent on a third data dimension and the colour of the bubble will vary according to another grouping type dimension. Is this possible under illustrator?

Illustrator :: Cannot Find New PMS Colors Pantone And Solid Coated Charts

Feb 11, 2014

I have a Pantone + Solid coated book that has 336 new colors in the back. Specifically pms 2028 C. The problem is when I try to find it in the PMS charts in Illi CS6 or PS CS6, those 336 new colors are not in my Pantone + Solid coated charts. I ran the adobe updates and it updated what it needed but I'm still unable to find it. Am I looking in the wrong chart? The name matches that of my PMS book so it just doesn't make sense. I scroll through the Illi chart and also try to use the "find" section.

Illustrator :: Improve 3D Effects When Blending With Many Steps?

Feb 27, 2014

I am recently having a lot of fun after I discovered the power of blending. So here is my "protocol": I create two similar shapes, I make sure that they have a colored stroke, I use the blender, then I modify the path with the pencil, and I get this kind of results
I am quite happy with this, because of the fake 3D effect that it generates. I kind of understand that the "3D- shading" effect comes from the stroke color. However, this method has its limitations because:

- it only works with a stroke

- it gives different aspects depending of the number of steps.
Is there any way to smooth the effect created by the strokes to avoid the segmentation seen of the picture above?
Ideally, the best tool would be some kind of "extrude+blend on free path" tool, but it doesn't seem to exist in Illustrator yet...

Photoshop :: Flow Charts?

Oct 31, 2008

We have a project to make flowcharts in Photoshop. I know there are programs specifically used to produce flowcharts, but PS CS3 is what we have. We have the text boxes and now trying to decide what line tool to use to connect the boxes. We tried the brush and pencil tool at 6 pixels and hold down the shift key to draw horizontal, then click and hold shift again for vertical, but we are getting "ink/Paint" blotter bleed.

I tried the pen tool, but it doesn't seem to allow you to draw a single line one way, select it and then apply a 6 pixel stroke. Is it possible to use the pen tool this way?

Photoshop :: CS2 Aliasing / General Accuracy

Oct 22, 2005

I've just started working with CS2, and I've noticed some quirks. I can't put my finger on it, but whenever I'm working on web layouts everything I do seems to have a strange aliasing / artifacting going on. I thought it was just my imagination, but then when I was out at the bar with a good friend of mine that's a designer, he mentioned that he'd seen the same problem and moved back to CS. Although it was annoying, I wasn't prepared to take that leap until I was working on a project yesterday and copying an area of solid color (#EEEEEE) into a new image created a dithered effect in the new image. There's absolutely no reason that it should have made any changes to the numbers, but it did. Is this some new function that's supposedly going to help photographers that is getting in my way? Now, I know that Photoshop has not always been the most accurate when working with solid colors and pixelated imagery, etc., but it has always worked really well for the work that I do. There's definitely a difference with CS2, but I really can't put my finger on it. For now, I'm back to working on CS, which is really unfortunate, because I love some of the new interface tweaks that Adobe has made.

Photoshop :: Tablet For Incredible Speed And Accuracy

Jun 24, 2011

So I'm always interested in what others use for gear as well. As a photographer myself comparing gear is quite common. I thought I'd ask what people are using for their photoshopping. I figure some use mouse, trackball, tablet etc.

I run a Sony Laptop and a Wacom Intuous 3 tablet. I run the tablet for the incredible speed and accuracy. I do have a large monitor on my second lappy in the office, but rarely use it. I find that screen size isn't that important to me, i just zoom in when I need to work on details.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Mass Accuracy In ILogic

Jul 3, 2013

How to set the mass calculation accuracy to 'Very High' when doing calculations in iLogic.

I asked for the iLogic equivalent to the VBA term:

' Set the accuracy to VeryHigh.
oMassProps.Accuracy = k_VeryHigh

and was provided with: 
oMassProps.Accuracy = 24580 'k_VeryHigh=24580
However, I believe that the value 24580 is actually equivalent to k_Medium. Confirm the iLogic equivalent value of k_VeryHigh.

Xara :: Drawing / Sizing Accuracy In Designer Pro 7?

May 2, 2012

Can we alter the "Accuracy" of drawing an object in Xara? As an example, when I try to specify a size of 2.625, the 'size indicator box' in the info bar shows a size of 2.63. Is there a way to increase the accuracy of the sizing?

When I specify the 2.625 and 2.63 is indicated, is the object actually the desired 2.625? If so, is there a setting that allows for a finer display of information?

...and I do realize it's only 5 thousandths of an inch here, but I'm asked to design to specific sizes and this level of accuracy is indicated.

3ds Max :: Render Color Accuracy With Ink (n) Paint Materials

Oct 1, 2011

I am having trouble getting colors in Ink 'n Paint materials to render as specified. They appear washed out - brighter and in low saturation. It happens with both default and mental ray renderers, with or without exposure control on. It also happens if I create an all new scene with nothing but a single box and the default Ink 'n Paint material, using default render settings, not touching anything else - the blue is wrong in the render.

Maybe I am misunderstanding the material itself somehow or missing something else, but I imagined one of the points of the material is to force colors to render exactly as specified.

Lightroom :: GPS Metadata Does Not Show Full Accuracy

Nov 2, 2012

Is there a way to show the full GPS coordinate data in the metadata?
In Nikon ViewNX it shows one of the coordinates as S23d 19m 15.23s from my image while Lightroom 4.2 only shows 32d 19m 15s.  The 0.23seconds is missing in LR4.  The data must be there as I have images that are shown in different positions on the map but the GPS metadata is the same.  Since the full data is not sown in LR4 the metadata cannot be accurately copied from one image to another.

CorelDRAW X5 :: Importing Excel 2010 Charts For Editing

Oct 18, 2011

I have been using CorelDraw for years (since version 2) to dress up charts generated in Excel by using copy picture from Excel and pasting (special) as an enhanced metafile.  Now since moving to Excel 2010 and CorelDraw X5 it seems some functionality has changed so that most of my chart objects (symbols, lines, but not text) appear in CorelDraw as two separate objects when I view them with wireframe mode. 

One seems to be the outline of the object, the other is the centreline (see below).  This makes editing tedious because for symbols, I must individually delete the outline object.  For lines it is impossible - basically a line in the Excel chart turns into a "sausage" which can be both filled and outline edited.  Maybe I am just missing an option somewhere to deal with this or is this some option in Excel that I need to change (re- the latter, a colleague with Adobe Illustrator doesn't have this problem on the same Excel charts).

AutoCAD 2010 :: Design Barrel Cam - Mathematical Accuracy?

Mar 11, 2012

I am trying to design a barrel cam. This works well with lofting, but I am not so sure about the mathematical accuracy. I am used to making cams like this with 1/4 degrees resolution - much too cumbersome in lofting. Is there a way with "_sweep" to constrain the profile (2d polyline) so that it stays e.g. parallel with the Z-axis?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Mass Property Calculation Could Not Match Requested Accuracy

I've has Inventor tell me this for thin walled tubes with holes in them, but not for a simple part like the attached one. Autodesk are you listening yet? This has been an issue for a long time. Mass calculations for parts with holes on curves do not work properly. On many parts the error comes up with "low" selected. By default each time I try to save the file, the error window pops up.

Paint.NET :: Improve Box Resizing Tools?

Dec 8, 2011

how to improve the box resizing tools ('S' & 'M'):

1) the shift key currently only constrains proportions when dragging the corners. make it also constrain proportions when dragging edges (keep the opposite edge-center box in place).

2) can you add an 'Alt'-key modifier that fixes the center of the selection, instead of the opposite corner/edge?
