  • Transparency in Illustrator

    I'm trying to save an Illustrator CS file as an .eps and place in Quark 6 so that the background will be transparent. I know I've done this before, but it's not working, and I can't figure it out. When I view the page in Quark with the graphic imported, it shows up as transparent, but prints with a white box. In the Clipping dialog box, there's no option for Alpha channel, or any other kind of clipping (even though in Illustrator I saved to preserve Alpha transparency). Please help!

    The only thing that might mess it up, I'm thinking, might be that the file has lots of 3D effects in it. I did flatten before saving, though. Soooo frustrating. [img]/emoticons/frusty.gif[/img]

    It's just what I call it when people use an expression that actually says or means the opposite of what is intended; ''could care less'' would be another prime example.

    That makes sense, I guess. Off is the inverse of on, which makes based off the inverse of based on. Got it. ...

    Okay, I know what a colloquialism is, but what is an inverse colloquialism?

    Probrien, in addition to HotButton's comments, which I agree with, the ad is a bit confusing. Maybe it's lacking...

    ''Based off'' is inverse of ''based on.'' ''Based on'' is a colloquialism.
    I think.
    I have not had enough to drink to play this game.

    Thanks for the feedback. That all makes a lot of sense. I'll take these points and re-work things....
