Illustrator :: Can't Place Or Open PDF - Blank Artboard

Mar 20, 2014

I edited a couple images in Photoshop for postcards to be printed, I converted them to CMYK and then saved as PDFs. I then tried to open them in Illustrator to finish up the project, but when I tried to place the images a box pops up that says "unknown error has occured" and when I try and open the images, all you can see is a blank artboard.
I'm using Creative Cloud

Illustrator :: How To Place A Guide In Exact Center Of Artboard

Nov 4, 2012

1. Is there an easy/precise way to place a guide in the exact center of an artboard?
2. I want to use the guide to create a balanced design for a poster by making sure that I place my focal image on the center of guide to ensure that half of it displays on either side of the guide. How important is it to strive for complete balance? Sometimes I see ads that seem to have balance while other times there might be tons of white space an some graphic element on one side or the other of the layout.

Illustrator :: Won't Paste In Place / Front / Back On Selected Artboard

Aug 22, 2013

I am having trouble with the Paste in Front/Back function. I will copy my selected layers and then want to paste them in place on the selected artboard next to it and often times it pastes it back on the artboard where it copies from. Sometimes the function does what I want, but often times it pastes in a different location, either on the same artboard, or next to the artboard where I want it pasted. It also tends to slightly move the X and Y values (again, sometimes). Each time I go to paste, I am creating a new layer and selecting the artboard where I want everything pasted, but sometimes it works, and other times it doesn't. I am using CS5 on MacBook Pro.

Photoshop :: Place An Object Like Illustrator Does

Aug 17, 2009

I need a way for Photoshop to place an object like Illustrator does. Sure, Smart Objects are nice but I need a method where I have a PS file and 1 or more layers in it are referenced. When these references are updated the PS file should update automatically (yes, I will have to have the file open and save ...). Illustrator does this ... page layout apps do this. I need for PS to do this or find a work method that will help do this. Any thoughts?The specific details:We have several hundred images of our app's interface. The images are composites of generic interface and language-specific interface. To make things easier when updating or translating docs we snag the local parts of the interface.We would then place and align the separate images in FrameMaker. We're moving to a new tool and output and we need to put all of the images together in a single image file but want to retain the ability to only update the localized sections. Smart Objects are not smart when trying to do this as they require you to either (essentially) re-import the object (using Replace) or edit the object from the composite image. This obviates the ability to simply replace the target image and have the composite update.So ...

Illustrator :: How To Get Object On Specific Place

Nov 5, 2013

If I want to place an object in illustrator cs6 on a specific place (for example rectangle, left above corner on X=14mm) and I fill this value in the transform  field and I tap the enter button, illustrator places the object on X=14,033.

Why does illustrator do this and how can I avoid that illustrator adjusts my specific X / Y values?

Photoshop :: Place Photo Into One Of Shapes - Place Command - Does Not Work?

Dec 10, 2012

I am using Photoshop cs6.

How can I place an image into one of the objects?

Photoshop :: Why Place Command Won't Place Other PSD Precisely

Jan 11, 2013

I am using Photoshop CS6. I have a question about Photoshop command Place.(File- Place) . Here are some pictures below. It shows the problem.

I opened the PSD file that has a green circle(picture 1) and using Place command to import other PSD file that has a red circle(picture2). Those 2 PSD files are same size, same canvas size, 1024x1024. So it should place the red circle precisely on the green circle, but as you can see, if I import the red circle PSD into Green circle PSD, Place command won't place the red circle pensively on the green circle. There is a gap between those 2 circles.(Picture3) It's really frustrating, because I have to move the red circle layer manually to place it just onto the green circle.
This command "Place" isn't reliable, so usually I don't use this command, and use Duplicate layer or group to import contents of other PSD, but if Place command can import other PSD file without this gap problem, I will use it because it's much faster than duplicating.

Do you know why and how to place  those 2 files without the gap? Is it a glitch? I should not use Place command to import other PSD file?

GIMP :: Paste In Same Place As Copied Selection Was (2012)

Feb 11, 2012

I have two images of the same size (e.g.800x600)

I select a region of the first image with any selection tool (e.g. the fuzzy select tool) I copy the selection.

Isn't there a way to paste the selection into the second image at exactly the same position where it was in the first image?

It seems to me unbelievable that there is no such option, but I can't ind it. I must be missing it. In Adobe flash it is called "paste in situ".

Photoshop :: 3D Object Stuck In Place

Dec 1, 2012

I'm having a strange reoccurring issue with 3D items in CS6. Lately, it's been involving 3D postcards. Whenever I merge them with another 3D layer, hide then unhide them, they reappear in a completely different position and get "stuck". When I try to move or scale them, they snap back to the previous location.

3ds Max :: Unable To Place Material On Object?

Mar 8, 2013

I am attempting to place a material on a simple plane (in the file it is Plane 02, the hill like object).

For some reason, when I drag and drop the material from the material editor onto the object in the view port, the material does not apply.

This is how I always have applied materials and I can't figure out what is happening. Neither the space bar lock, nor Freeze are in effect.

Photoshop :: How To Center One Object Against Another While Keeping One In Place

Oct 17, 2012

This is my original drawing in Photoshop CS5 for Windows:My goal is to quickly center two objects while keeping one of them (blue rectangle in my example) in place:
If I follow the standard procedure (select both objects, align vertical and horizontal centers), both objects are moved to the center of the drawing:So the blue square has lost it's original position which is not good.
