Crome type in Illustrator CS6

Apr 25, 2013 9:17 PM

I created chrome type based on the example from link provided and it came out fine. The problem I am encountering now is if I need to select and scale part of the word up. But when I do this the blend that is in part 2 is selected also. I have tried selecting it with the pathfinder so the blend is knocked out and only appears in the fonts but no luck.

 

The highlights that are in section 5, I was able to copy they type and with pathfinder used the trim and that is fine.

 

What I can seem to get are the 2 lines that were turned into a blend and trim it so it is only in the fonts, the clipping mask does it in the preview buy when you swich to outline the blend lines are there.

Any help appreciated
