i am using a mac OS 10.8. was slicing a document and saved the slices. works great. now i am trying to save a totally different document in which i am not using any slices and i am getting an error message.
how do if fix this. it's a real pain in the ***.
no luck. no view slices, only one art board. copy and pasted it into a new document. still the same message:
Could not complete this operation. There are no user slices.
This is a huge deal for me and i am wasting a great deal of time doing work arounds. how do i fix this?
thanks for taking the time. my direct email is email@example.com
I use Illustrator slices but they're very wierd. For example, if you draw a slice which you happen to be on a particular layer, then hide that layer, it sorta doesn't see the slices. Other times if I name the slices that name doesn't stick and I have to figure out which one to re-type.
The worst is that you can't really define a folder for them to save to (CS6). No matter what you want, AI's CS6 version of Save-For-Web always makes a new "images" folder.
Once I get an AI slice-ready document that actually works, I try to use it as a sort of tempate to cut down on the annoyance.
I have even made slices in a separate Photoshop document and pasted my AI stuff as a smart object there, which is some ways is faster than using AI. CS5 wasn't this nutty.
So good luck!
Might be a little bit late, but there was the same subject once and one workaround was given :
- Open Illustrator and start a new document.
- Create a new slice (Shift+K) anywhere on the document.
- File > Save for Web...
- In the bottom right corner there is an option for “Export”. Change this to “All Slices”.
- Save that out so that Illustrator retains that option as default.
Worked for me
I had same issue today.
Here was my solution, which does not seem obvious, but resolved.
When I experienced the error in a new document, I realized that I changed my settings to PNG vs JPEG in the PREVIOUSLY used document and did indeed change "ALL SLICES" to "ALL USER SLICES".
Since this document, when saving as a JPEG or PNG automatically defaulted in the background to the "ALL USER SLICES" it couldn't find them..... there were no slices, it was just ONE ART BOARD without any slices.
I opened up the PRIOR DOCUMENT. Saved again and changed "ALL USER SLICES" back to "ALL SLICES". Saved. Closed.
Then opened up my CURRENT document that I experienced the error and WHALLAH it worked.
Even though the document said "ALL SLICES" all along, in the background there was a brief ADOBE GLITCH remembering the previous documents settings. It happens. Resolved.
