My name is Alexis I have a blending problem (hiiii Alexis...).
Okay, seriously, I've used the blend tool to make a series of lines between two other lines; I need to expand everything so that the whole thing becomes a fill-only object (no strokes):
- I expand it (Object > Expand; Object box checked, Fill box checked, Stroke box checked) and the object becomes strokes-only (no fill at all)
- I expand it again (Object > Expand; Object box greyed out, Fill box checked, Stroke box checked) and the object becomes fill-only (yay!) except the shape of the lines has changed (boo!). Unchecking the stroke box and leaving only the Fill box checked seems to have no effect, the object remains stroke-only).
What's going on here?
I've made a diagram to explain my problem a little better in case I haven't been clear enough: http://tinypic.com/r/6pqbyc/5
Please and thank you!
For whatever reason it only seems to be happening when I have one point on both lines touching and a lot of lines in between. If the lines are spread out from each other or if there there are fewer specified steps between Line A and Line B it doesn't happen. Thank you for help help, though
This is a shot in the dark, I admit, but;
After you expand the first time, while the shapes are only strokes, what happens if you try Object > Path > Add Anchor Points before expanding the second time?
It really shouldn't make any difference, but I've seen cases where it does.
