When I publish something to PDF (in order to send it to a professional presser) the cutting lines are set on the 'bleed edge' instead of excluding the neccesary bleed margin of 3mm. In other words I am not able to provide any PDF document with a bleed margin which is (obviously) very frustrating for the pressing company as well as for me.
- In Publish to PDF > Settings > Pre-press I checked the cutting-line box ( I work with a dutch version so excuse me if the the right translations aren't used. Check attached file for the settings).
- When I check the box 'Aflopen' (just above the cutting line box) the PDF file turns out white.
A customer sent me a jpeg of a white dove that they want printed on vinyl and then contour cut to put on their travel trailer. The picture was a very low dpi and I scanned it and increased the dpi to 150. I tried to trace it, but it just would not come out right.
My question is -- Can I put cutting lines around the dove as a bitmap and then be able to print and contour cut it out?
A quote from an illy user "the biggest thing that ILLY does that COREL does not appear to do , is have the SMOOTH TOOL and I use this ALLLLLL the time. ....you can simply stroke, stroke, stroke away with your pen, with one touch of the keyboard for beautiful smooth vector lines." Does Corel have one tool for smoothing vector lines only?
The yellowcurve is created by progect geometry of red circle on a solid(I delete solid after that).and there are some lines on circle and parallel to projection vector. now I,m going to trim or extend these lines by yellow curve. trim and extend don,t work and there is no intersection point between blue lines and yellow cure . What should I do?
I want to trim off the top of the lines in the picture below. I used white lines to cover the top to show you what look I wanted to achieve, However, I know that using white lines to cover it up is not a practical solution for my application. I know that I should be messing with the pathfinder tool but I just can't get it to work right for me. I am pretty new to illustrator and Photoshop.
I have a drawing from a surveyor showing contours which have been formed by 2D polylines. I have tried to trim out a portion of the contours, which i don't need, using extrim command but it doesn't trim any of the contour lines. Even with just the trim command i cannot trim them. i have tied exploding but still not managed to trim. How to trim these unwanted contour lines ?
I'm trying to learn illustrator cs2 on my own and am having some issues with a few basic functions. I am drawing shapes using the rectangle, ellipses and trying to join them together. How do i trim 2 lines together to make a corner. I would like to cut off the exess at the ends by cutting to the other lines. I know this seems basic but I can't figure it out. In the end I want to make a figure using all the drawing tools ( pen, line, shapes etc) and have the outline just one feature.
how do I make straight lines? Horizontal Lines? Vertical Lines? Curvs? I read many tutorials and i am afraid that I am doing it the wrong way, my way is to drag a guide to where i want the line to be at and trace the guide with the brush tool...
When I initiate the trim command with a double enter (i.e. select all mode), I usually first zoom into the area I want to trim so I see no other objects, then start the trim <Enter><Enter> option, then pick the lines I want to trim. Even if these extend off the screen and cross other objects (not seen on the screen), they usually trim off completely. However, on occassion they don't. To replicate the problem try this:
Draw 2 vertical lines and 2 horizontal intersecting (like noughts and crosses)Draw a horizontal line that intersects both vertical lines but up near the top of those linesZoom in so you only see the square and extending lines (but not the short horizontal line)Trim <Enter> <Enter> and pick from bottom right to top left (i.e. around the squareZoom out.
The square is trimmed, however there are 2 line fragments left above the horizontal short line.
Fix: UndoTrim the same way and presto, it now works I found if I then moved the line above (so only a small amount), zoomed in again, tried to trim - same error.
I'm using ACA 2008 and used to be able to pick two lines that didn't physically cross each other and use the trim command to trim them based on where they would cross if they extended to each other. But it doesn't seem to do it anymore.
Best way I can describe it is it used to trim at the apparent interest ion of where they would come together. I'm sure there's some easy fix to this, just don't know where it's at.
We recently upgraded to Autocad Architecture 2013 and the trim command is driving me mental. Lets say I have a window mullion pattern with 4 intersecting lines and I want to trim out the center. (see attached example) I start the trim command, then right to left window to select the 4 lines, then use another right to left selection window to trim out the lines. It always leaves on of the lines leaving me to have to click one more time. This is a huge pain when you have to do this multiple times. That is a lot of extra clicks. What gives? I never had this issue before.
I am having trouble with my lines connecting...have tried adjusting the line effects, edge mode, jitter, line extension...but Trim and Facet are not working with certain lines not connecting or not trimming. I attached my dwg file.
when I am working on a large drawing and/or pasting as a block, all the grey lines (colour 8) turn to white. When I select a grey line, it flicks back to grey, but de-select, and it's white again.
If I toggle on hardware acceleration, the problem is fixed for a short while, and also if I turn it off, it is fixed for a short while, and also if I save, close and re-open it's good untill I paste a block....
I suspect it may be because of my setup and an un tested graphics card:
Windows 7 64 bit Ultimate - running through bootcamp on a macbook pro
Half the time I use TRIM tool vector on top of vector it doesn't work.
I can't seem to figure out why in some cases trim works and in others it simply puts the top object under the bottom one instead of trimming it from the bottom one.
Does same thing in X3 X4 and X5?
I've tried everything from making sure both were filled with solid color - all curves closed, nothing else grouped with them - nothing - sometimes I have to try a couple times doing same thing and it will work, other times not at all - even after trying a save (which sometimes works)
Both top and bottom show on layer one in properties too!
i am doing a simple project making a survey plot for a piece of land that will be broken into subdivision. all measurements are of my starting point. after plotting the starting point i try to draw line that is 113 feet long and at a bearing of N 5d W i have no problem entering this data but when i hit enter it draws a straight line. now i know 5 degrees is much of an angle so i thought maybe it just looked straight and tried to plot the next point which was 542 feet from the last point at a bearing of N 39d E but once again after i put the info in and hit enter or space it would plot a line of the proper length but vertical, not the proper angle i need it at. here is how i would put in the info:
first i choose the lne command and choose my "beginning point" as that starting point for my line then i type 113<N 5d W for the length and direction and hit enter. when i do this it plots a vertical line of the proper length but wrong angle. what am i doing wrong? i have ortho set to off and idk what else to mess with
Is there any option with wipeout to turn the continuous lines into dotted lines instead of hiding the object? I have been working on one staircase block, i want to show half block as a dotted lines.. is there any way to do that without going in to the block edit and change? thats why am looking for wipeout mask option.
