Any illustrator pros able to help me out here real quick?



I need to know if theres anything i can do to fix this. I have yet to reinstall it.

    Try object/expand appearance before you use the pathfinder functions.
    Are they all unlocked? I sometimes forget to unlock some shapes.

    all are expanded/expanded appearance, closed-path objects and are unlocked. it also wont let me move objects where id like to. ill make another video to show that. or go to tinychat if you could

    its fine for the first 30 seconds. until i use the pathfinder

    turn off 'smart guides' on the view menu maybe haha
  • augie

    i dont know what non aktif means, but smart guides arent the problem. i have those off along with "snap to [any option]"

    so problem with first video is that when you pathfind some of them join up??? do a wireframe view (ctrl Y) and make sure nothing is lurking back there. Make sure the mistake is happening on diff views (zoom in, fit window, etc).

    and second vid is that it won't move where you want it to?? snapping to guides somehow?? what are you uniting anyway?

    i'm a pro, haven't used CS5 yet, but I'll help if I can. Damn glad I don't have a hangover or am epilectic, those vids would seriously fuck me up :)

    could be a software screw-up or just somehting that can be hunted down through a process of elimination.

    agreed. you may just have them on for these vids, but that shit is just amateur and IMHO soooooooo fucking annoying :)

    also, i have smart guides on to keep symmetry and center-ness. the problem persists even without them on
