Right now I am using a temporary computer, as mine is being re-formated.
When I opened Illustrator to change a text-line in a picture, there was no cursor when I clicked on a word. I could still make my change, but no blinking cursor to tell me where I was. Can somebody please tell me where that setting is? It feels like I am working blind...
I looked for this in the help-file, and while doing that (and not finding the answer), I wondered, as so many times before, how they thought at Adobe when they constructed the help-file as it is now... If I open the help-file in Illustrator, select that I want an answer for Illustrator (the icon to the right of the search-box) WHY do I get answers for InDesign, Bridge and other programs???? WHY not just for Illustrator? I am NOT interested in those programs right now, I want an answer for Illustrator. Please tell me there's a setting or something to fix this, because this drives me crazy each time I want help with something.
Yes, the help system sucks. The smart thing to do would to download the PDF version and search within the PDF file only. Cursors disappering can have any number of reasons form graphics card issues to simply the color scheme you chose or the colro of the image. Provide a screenshot...
Thanks for your answer. For some strange reason the problem is now fixed... I checked the second box in Settings/General that says something like "use exact cursors", restarted the program and no change. Then I went for a coffee break and now it works
So how do I download the pdf help-file?
