    Thanks! I'll give it a shot

    is there a secret to getting lettering to evenly and neatly diagonal on the front of a jersey, a la NY Rangers? I try it by hand and it never ever looks right.

    Nevermind, answered my own question. I didn't know there was a cheetah print in the swatches library. UniJ

    Hey guys, quick question. I have Google searched this to no end without any luck. Is there a way to make your own cheetah print in Illustrator or do you have to just find a brush and download it? I need the print for a logo I am going to start working on in the next few weeks and I'm pulling together all my reference pics and doing some sketches but I know doing every individual spot by hand (especially If I have to trace an entire pattern versus drawing three or four spots and making my own scatter brush) its going to be a huge pain in the ass. I know when I did the identity package for IceCap's Calgary Tigers fantasy hockey team, I had to break down and just hand draw all the tiger stripes because I'm not familiar with finding and downloading brushes into Illustrator. I can't be the only person that has ever had an issue like this with animal print. Thanks in advance! UniJ

    It could be, I don't know, and if so there is no real way to prevent it, I really don't think we are going to start coordinating our Illustrator time, lol. I have since just went back to CS2. Thank you for the help.

    CS5 is now opening and instantly closing again. Ive uninstalled and reinstalled. Reset the computer about a jillion times. Cleaned out the registry and reinstalled. Nothing works. Now I did get CS5 from a designer friend of mine and used his serial, all that, because he told me it should work. Would that be it, like does Adobe track who is using what serial number where or have IP addresses stored in a system and if its used in an "unauthorized" location it will shut down the "strange" one? I am just confused. I even reset my whole computer to factory settings (which I was going to do anyway, cuz it was just running slow as crap) and that didn't work. Any help would be appreciated. UniJ

    That worked! Thank you so much. UniJ

    Hola, gentlemen. I upgraded to CS5 last week and after years of using CS3 I know it will take some time to adjust. However, each time I close the program I lose all tools (ie: layers, color, stroke, pathfinder, etc.), I prefer these items to be out and accessible while i work instead of being along the sides of the window in an icon tray. I also like my work in RGB preview and it constantly switches back to CMYK, and I have fixed all these in the Preferences menu. Am I doing something wrong or do I just have to reside in the fact that I will have to reopen and organize everything each time I close and open the program? Thanks for any and all help. UniJ

    Never mind, I found it. Please share, so others (perhaps even me) can know in case they want that font as well. UniJ

    As far as Ichiro's trade, I think it's odd that Seattle would trade him to the team they are PLAYING at the time of the trade. So he just packs his stuff and walks over to the other clubhouse. That has to be odd for everyone involved. I still remember when the Pirates traded Denny Neagle to the Braves mid-series, though I am not positive if he pitched against the Bucs (but I think he did actually pitch against them the very next day after the trade), it was rumored (by Neagle himself, I think) that they traded him to the Braves during a series with the Braves in order to save travel costs. The Pirates did get Jason Schmidt out of it, though, FWIW.

    Try dragging the image from your web browser into Illustrator or saving it to your local drive. That happens to me on rare occasions. Just for reference, I tried to copy this image into my artwork and this is how it came up, words no picture. I did try to drag it as you suggested, but it didn't work and I really dont want to save every single item I want to use as a reference picture or whatever, down the road, I want to fix whatever I did. I HAD to have accidentally hit some sort of wrong combo on my keyboard thinking I was doing another function with the shortcuts and triggered this to happen, but I went through every pull down menu and can't see anything that would strike me as "oh yeah, thats probably it". Thanks anyway. UniJ Problem fixed. It is a bug in Firefox 12. Supposed to be corrected when Firefox 13 comes out in June.

    Out of the blue last night any image I copied and tried to paste into Illustrator (I use CS3) shows the code or web address of the copied image instead of the image itself, when pasted and I can't figure out why it started doing this or how I fix it. Did I accidentally use a keyboard shortcut to start doing this? How do I return it to the point where I can see the image I copied instead of words and symbols? I need to paste in some reference shots for a template I am working on. Any help is appreciated. UniJ

    Screen shots will help. Are you hitting align left or align center? Also which version of Illustrator do you have? I have noticed that if you have objects near the edge of an art board, it sometimes acts funny. ugh, nevermind. As I was getting the screenshots, it stopped doing it (wtf)? But this has happened on me before, though, but this project is super involved and important and I don't want to have to add any more extra steps than I am already facing. I definitely know I'm not hitting the left align and the items DO center horizontally, they just jumped off the screen in the process. As far as the version of Illy I am using, if memory serves it is CS3
