Set 'transparency flattener presets' to [High Resolution]

Feb 23, 2012 8:32 AM

http://help.adobe.com/en_US/illustrator/cs/using/WS9327D15E-A9FF-4698- BDA5-8791A891D061.html

 

I am editing thousands of images that need to be exported as High Res .eps's.

Is there a way to make [High Resolution] the default rather than [Medium Resolution] ?

    edit this file

    user/(yourname)/library/preferences/adobe Ilustrator 4 settings/en us/Transparency Flattener Presets

     

     

    Collection 2 is your default so I edited those values to match the screenshot below hope I got them right. Replace the code with below (keep a backup of original just in case)

     

    /collection3 {

    /attributes {

    /AI9\ Mesh\ Rasterization\ Resolution 144.0

    /AI9\ Output\ Rasterization\ Resolution 288.0

    /AI10\ flattener\ raster-vector\ balance 75

    /AI10\ flattener\ clip\ complex\ regions 0

    /AI10\ flattener\ outline\ strokes 1

    /AI10\ flattener\ outline\ text 0

    /collectionName [ 16

    5b4c6f77205265736f6c7574696f6e5d

    ]

    }

    /canEdit 0

    /canDelete 0

    }

    /collection2 {

    /attributes {

    /AI9\ Mesh\ Rasterization\ Resolution 300.0

    /AI9\ Output\ Rasterization\ Resolution 1200.0

    /AI10\ flattener\ raster-vector\ balance 100

    /AI10\ flattener\ clip\ complex\ regions 1

    /AI10\ flattener\ outline\ strokes 0

    /AI10\ flattener\ outline\ text 0

    /collectionName [ 19

    5b4d656469756d205265736f6c7574696f6e5d

    ]

    }

    /canEdit 0

    /canDelete 0

    }

    /collection1 {

    /attributes {

    /AI9\ Mesh\ Rasterization\ Resolution 300.0

    /AI9\ Output\ Rasterization\ Resolution 1200.0

    /AI10\ flattener\ raster-vector\ balance 100

    /AI10\ flattener\ clip\ complex\ regions 1

    /AI10\ flattener\ outline\ strokes 0

    /AI10\ flattener\ outline\ text 0

    /collectionName [ 17

    5b48696768205265736f6c7574696f6e5d

    ]

    }

    /canEdit 0

    /canDelete 0

    }

    /Sketch {

    /Version 1

    /Description (Flattener catalog for AI11)

    /Owner (AI11 Flattener Catalog Manager)

    }

    /NumberOfCollections 3

    /CatalogName (AI11 Flattener Presets)

    A different version I made with the help of Carlso Canto, worked for me to slide the vector balance to bitmapped . So hope the code above works for you.

    I Have the exact same issue. The default is medium resolution, and even with the setting edits above illustrator opens with the custom settings equivalent to medium resolution. If I delete medium resolution altogether it causes issues saving.

     

    I need to change it as the 'convert strokes to outlines' setting causes trouble with double cutting on our large format plotter. I have to manually change every file in the attempt to stop the issues.

     

    Is there no way to effectively change the default transparency setting? Seems a little odd?

     

    Thanks.

    My workaround was to create a Flatten Transparency preset (at the bottom of dialogue box) after changing resolution to High. Now it defaults to this setting each time.
