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.
IMAGE 1: as seen in Illustrator
IMAGE 2: as seen in Acrobat
IMAGE 3: Illustrator showing fill and layer structure.
We need to see the appearance panel if there are special effects applied to it.
This could be some GPU rendering issue.
Thanks for the response, Monika. See appearance panel below.
Thank you. That is completely inconspicious. So issues with the graphic card could be he cause. Can you tell us about your hardware setup?
Some more screenshots below. Thanks again for your time.
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.
Glad you could solve it and thank you for the feedback.
