    Place the excel File and make sure to check the option "show import options".

    In the menu that you get you can choose how many decimals you want to include.

    Thanks. All good points. I agree that I could take a good bit of the bottom two columns out.

    No need to apologize for any of that. Didn't think it was the least bit harsh.

    Thanks for your comments. I really appreciate them.

  • Illustrator: Minus front/Back

    I used to have Illustrator 7 until I upgraded to the CS package.

    Illus 7 used to have a pathfinder - minus front or minus back option... this new illus doesn't...WHY???

    It was a simple process, like cutting out shapes and forms. now what do I do?

    I guess there is always masking or hands-on editing, but making a 3/4 moon shape was easy with minus front using 2 circles.

    it's not a crisis but annoying...
    Any help?
    PS - This is what part of the Alphabet would look like if Q & R were eliminated

    My Illustrator CS has 'Minus Back' option in the 'Pathfinder' pallet. I just arrange the layers so the part I want minused is at the back.

    (I'm running Illustrator on Mac, might be different if you're on PC)

      Yeah, for some bizarre reason Minus Front was dropped in Illy 10 (or was it 9?).
      Minus Back is on the bottom row, far right. Just restack like Kirby says. Or use Object>Compound Path>Make, if you can.

      PrintDriver is a grande format digital print dude. His advice/opinions may not apply to the 4color/offset/web world of printing
