Hi,

I'm suddenly having a problem exporting my images with a transparent background. When I export an asset it is appearing with a white background even though the transparency grid shows that the area should be transparent. I have never had this issue before and it just suddenly started, even on documents that I have been successfully exporting transparent images on for months. All of the sudden the same images and the same process I always followed is producing a solid background.

I did recently switch from a PC to a Mac and I am not sure if that would be part of the issue?? I don't see why it would but thinking about it, I don't recall checking this before I switched.

I have no idea how to fix it. Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Holly

That was the problem. I'm relatively new to Illustrator and I've been using the Asset Export window, which doesn't ask me that. I feel silly for not trying that.

Thank you.
