ICC Profile save dialogue.

Mar 18, 2013 9:08 AM

Is there a way to adjust the .AI save dialogue to have ICC profiles permanently unchecked? I am finding that in CS6 all of my effects convert to images once an .AI file is saved out. For instance in my effects palette if I have a drop shadow on a vector object, then save, the shadow will then convert to an un-editable 'image' layer.


Running a Mac OSX 10.6.8  CS6 Suite.


Thank you.

    Your raster effects would chnaeg to embedded images if you are opening .AI CS6 files in CS5. ATleast they give you this  message to look out for.

    Yes this is very odd.


    Do a test with a fresh new file and one shape to see what happens. This way we can figure out if this happens to all files, or if there may be something strange with your file or color profile.


    Are you usng any 3rd party plug ins or a custom color profile?
