Hi All,

I have a new issue that I have not run into before. In order to vector a signature, I...

1) Image Traced a tiff, then expanded it.

2) Made it a compound path

3) Filled with black

The image looks fine in illustrator, BUT if you open it in Acrobat (or preview it in the Finder) it displays ghosted, as if it is stroked (in some bizzare fashion) and not filled.

Below are some pics for reference. Any advice would be most appreciated.

Cheers,

Dennis

We need to see the appearance panel if there are special effects applied to it.

 

This could be some GPU rendering issue.

Thank you. That is completely inconspicious. So issues with the graphic card could be he cause. Can you tell us about your hardware setup?

Hi Monika, I have figured it out. There was a hidden subgroup buried in the compound path generated by the trace. This was the source of problems. I released the compound path. Deleted the extra ground and then re-made the compound path. Problem solved. Thanks for your efforts.
