  • Illy borders

    So i was using some of the preloaded borders in illy but ran across a problem. When i apply the border and then try to fill the circle...the fill overlaps under the border...it wont allow me to align the border to the outside. how do i get around this. i tried dragging the border onto the art board and live painting it...make the transarent parts white....but then returning it to the border palette and applying it poses a problem...as someone in the whole process it adds a white spacing...making a break in the border. any idea on how to get around this. many thanks!

    did you try putting a colored box behind the box with the border?

      no. but i dont think that will do it. gonna try after this posting. take a look at the pic i have attached. this is an illy border. i moved the bottom line up near the top to show what i think the problem is. see how the bottom line is slightly bigger than the top. when i apply the border straight from illy no prob. just when i edited i have problems. well try the white background...but am not sure if i should draw the end of it it the longer line or shorter.

        If I am understanding your issue (and I may not be...)
        Another option is to take the entire border (without fill) and expand it, then use the live paint bucket to fill the interior.

          Yeah, that's what I was going to suggest, more or less.

              I'm thinking that may be what he was meaning. For posters I really focus on heirarchy. Grids... not so much. Unless it was maybe a series of posters and I wanted them to look similar.

              Most grids are for a continuous pleasant group of graphics so as to "belong" together. Most used in magazines and newspapers you can establish a grid for any project. Then subsequent related...

              As is the case with regard to many types of design decision, right or wrong is really not applicable, but that's not to say one decision won't lead to a better result than another.

              One way you can work around it (and I always recommend work-arounds as a last step) is to place the PDF into Illustrator. Then go Object>Flatten Transparency and click "Convert All Text To Ou...
