I'm an AI user for over a decade. CS5 Mac 10.6.8. This morning I am trying to simply cut a path w/ the scissor tool. It's something i've done a million times. But today all AI tells me no matter how many times i click is" please use S tool on segment or anchor point, not on endpath. I am losing a morning trying to do this! I can open a new doc and do it on a path but not in this doc no matter how many times i try . I[ve even tried creating mew but it just won't do anything but pop up that freakin' error message. any ideas what could be wrong? many thanks!
Should I send the file? Attach it here?
BTW - out of frustration and time constraints - I began a new file and recreated the art. It is working fine - as I mentioned it seemed to be only this one file. So --I can send the file -- even though i am working with a new file. Or just chalk it up to some kindo f mystery. let me know which to do. SO many thanks for your help on htis.
you can post a screen shot, use the "camera icon", it is right above the text area. Show the path (selected) and the layers panel expanded.
or you can upload your file to a server of your choice and post the link here.
