So sorry. I said Elements but I really meant Illustrator 10. I use them so much side by side that I got them mixed up. Please look at this .pdf file to see my problem. How do I adjust the page print area within the document border.
Try this. If the document size is letter just print it to legal, if legal print it to tabloid (11x17). Oh yeah and what they said, always try to put your Ill/photoshop and PDF files into something like ID or QE, they make page manipulation much easier.
There must be a easy way to center the print area into the document frame of an illustrator 10 file. The print area of say an A4 page setup should be centered within the boarder of a A4 document setup. Please download my screenshot.
There is a tool that allows you to grab that print area and move it wherever you want it. I have to get to my on-site contract job and check my Illustrator so I can give you the correct tool. Two shakes of a cat's tail and I'll have the answer.
Natobasso, cool - that"s what I was after . . . and it only took two skakes of a cat's tail. While you are at it, perhaps you can tell me how to do one more thing. Everytime I start up Illustrator 10, the tools are not displayed. Each time I launch the program I have to go into the window menu and choose "Tools" even though the other stuff like "info" and "character" are displayed. Is there a way to get the tools to stay there by default?
I notice that my Illustrator doesn't like to remember any of the custom settings I give it.
I'd recommend trashing your preferences and starting up the program a few times to see if that fixes it. Make sure the toolbox shows up every time you start the program. If it doesn't, then it might not be the preference file that's the problem. Look around in the Illustrator app folder for your Plug ins/Tools and make sure the permissions are set to Read/Write.
Throwing away the preferences file did the trick where the toolbox is concerned. However, I notice it still doesn't like to remember customs settings like font, etc. BTW, I do have the permissions set to read/write.
