extracting parts of vector images

Aug 5, 2012 3:51 AM



I've been struggling to copy one part of a logo to use it in different part of a document. If I ungroup all the elements in the logo then double click to select the part I want, when I paste the bounding box(?) of the pasted componant is the same size as the entire logo. Also, if I try to move the pasted part outside the bound box(?) of the original logo it disappears..


What am I not understanding that will help me achieve what I want to do??

    Could you please post a screenshot with the object selected and the Layers Panel expanded?

    If stuff gets overly complex it might be easier manipulating the object in the Layers Panel anyway.

    Double-clicking enters isolation mode and if you do stuff inside a group, it will be reflected one level up in the hierarchy of course. that may be why your object seems to disappear - you're moving it inside the group, not at the document root level.
