I'm trying to blend two zigzag lines together on Illustrator and every time I go to blend options and blend it, it doesn't work. It also isn't allowing me to click "make" under blend. Help, please!
When you go to object>blend>blend options make sure smooth color is selected. Also toggle the preview button to see if it changes. Then go back and select make.
It doesn't even let me toggle the preview button. I tried these steps again & its still not working.
What I have done is draw a line segment
Apply Effect >Distort & Transform > ZigZag
Duplicate zigzag line segment
Select Blend tool
Click on each line segment.
Select both zigzag line segments
Go to Object menu > Blend > Make
Double-click on Blend tool in Toolbar
Go to Object menu > Blend > Blend Options
Change from Smooth Color to Specified Steps
Adjust number until satisfied.
nothing in the blend options is working at al. doesnt matter if its the smooth color, steps or distance
We don't even have a screenshot of your file. Let alone the important information that the layers panel contains.
So please show us something.
Sorry to hear about this issue. Please try to create a new file and check how it works. If new file also shows the same behavior, I would request if you can try resetting preferences for Illustrator and let us know if that helps: How to set preferences in Illustrator
Please note: Resetting preferences will remove all the custom settings and Illustrator will launch with default settings. You can also take a backup of the folder in case you want to. Location is mentioned in the article.
I had the same exact issue. The problem was that the document was RBG and I was trying to blend CMYK colors in it. I would just make sure the color settings match and it should work.
What exactly did you change? I'm having the same issue. What I did was created a object in illustrator I want to use in multiple designs. Now I want it to follow a path and it won't let me "Make" a blend.
I'm having the same issue. did you find a way to fix the problem?
Exactly which "same" issue do you have?
Please describe and post screenshots.
I am trying to use the blend tool here I can't click the preveiw button. I am using CMYK
After pressingblend and then ok I cant press make.
Looks like a single textbox. Try again with 2 text items.
They are area texts. It only works with point texts.
