Hello:                                                            OS: Windows 7 64bit

 

I am working on a tut that says after drawing a line to > hold down the Alt & Shift keys and drag the line down.

 

I did this once and it worked fine. However, I had some other problems which I resolved but I had to start over and now the above will not Duplicate the line nor can I move it in the above manner.

 

Any ideas?

 

Thank you for your time

    You should be able to duplicate the object with just Alt key , but you need to use the Selection tool (black arrow too)

    May I have the case number for the support call at Adobe, It will help me to know what steps were followed on call.

     

    Also I have read that post wherein Wade has suggested to reset the preferences , it is a good step to follow .Do let us know if incase that sort out the problem

    As I replied on your other post , the support has closed the case and the resolution is the Preference reset.

     

    Coild you provide us the screen shot along with your workflow to understand better .

    Kara,

     

    As I said in the other thread, in some cases, just renaming/moving the AIPrefs file is not enough.

     

    You may try to  Move the folder with Illy closed, in other words move the whole folder containing the AIPrefs file. If it fails to make a difference, you may move it back and regain your preferences, so it is reversible.

    For my part you are welcome, Kara.

     

    And good luck with the new one.
