  • calligraphy stroke help

    Hi folks. I made this in illy. I like it. However i am havin a problem. The top line is a calligraphy paint brush. The letters are font. The problem is it looks good now, but when i try to resize it everything screws up. I tried creating outlines on both the stroke and letters. Doesnt work, cause the stroke will shrink size on the conversion. any ideas? is this because it is a brush stroke? any way around this?

    Yes. Use object -> Expand appearance on it. That will convert the stroke to a shape and should fix your problem.

      object>expand appearance

      there is a setting in the preferences "Scale strokes and effects" make sure that is turned on as well.

We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated governments in the civilized world. No government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of small groups of men.’ - Woodrow Wilson

          Tried to find it on Netflix last night, but it wasn't there. Tried Amazon Prime too, and couldn't find it. I would like to see it, though.
