  • 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]

    I still think it's asking for trouble to just assume something is going print okay. If the person you are dealing with doesn't know the answer, find out. Get the information for whoever is producing the...
