I'm filling suares with patterns in AI to be used in my ID portfolio. When I drag the finished square into my CC library, the pattern shifts within the square and it's not placed the way I want it anymore. Anyone know why this is happening?
I don't know why this is happening, but I suspect the rulers.
I created an object at the upper left of the arboard and filled it with a pattern.
I added the object to the CC library and dragged it back (making it a linked file).
The pattern shifted.
I selected the pattern object in the library and clicked Edit.
When it opened in a new window, I showed the rulers and control clicked the upper left ruler intersection.
I changed the rulers to Global rulers.
Double clicked the ruler intersection point to reset the upper left to 0/0.
Saved the file .
Now I can place them linked without shifting.
Maybe that is caused by an option checked in the Preferences (or the Transform panel): Transform Pattern Tiles.
