Art Text 3: import and manipulate shapes

Postby Almarma » May 31st, 2016, 7:55 am

Hi,

First, congratulations for Art Text 3, is an amazing piece of software!

Second, my question. I'm trying to create a wifi icon similar to the one I attached, but I find it really difficult to be precise to draw it, and I see there's an option for a custom folder in the forms panel on the left, where I could use custom icons but I cannot find information about what format should I use. I know it should be vector format, but which one? SVG? AI? several?

Hi

Only PDF can be used to import vector graphics to Art Text.

Is there a special format of PDF required to this? I am unable to get a pdf file to convert to 3D... when I right click, it just turns to a thin grey 3D rectangle the size of the image...?

Thanks for the help.

To correctly add a vector image you need to open Shapes tab and select 'Custom folder' from a drop-down menu. Then point the program to the folder containing your images (in pdf format). After that, you can select these objects and add them to your document.

I know that, but this doesn't work with most format, like you know...psd, ai, svg, gif etc...pdf is hardly a format anybody used for vector images.

I've been testing here and there is a problem with the PDF format in some cases.
For example, if I have a big word with special design, formatting etc, I save it as PDF from Adobe Illustrator and part of the letters WON'T SHOW when imported.
I've been trying out several PDF formats: Illustrator Default, X1, X4 (2008)... all seem to bring the same problem.

Could you guys see about this?
Thanks
