TROUBLE WITH ACTIONS IN CS5.5

Apr 9, 2012 1:38 PM

Tags: #illustrator #actions #actionsscript

I JUST UPGRADED TO CS5.5 FROM CS3.  I HAVE ACTIONS I CREATED IN CS3 THAT DO NOT WORK IN CS5.5 AND I WAS WONDERING IF ANYONE KNOWS WHY.

 

THE ACTION I HAVE IN CS3...

STEP 1: SELECT ALL

STEP 2: CHANGE X VALUE TO 1.4375 (IN TRANSFORM PANEL)

STEP 3: CHANGE Y VALUE TO .762 (IN TRANSFORM PANEL)

 

THAT'S IT! IT'S A SIMPLE ONE THAT CENTERS ALL ART ON MY TEMPLATE.  WHEN I USE THE SAME ACTION IN CS5.5 IT DOESN'T WORK. IT JUST MOVES IT TO RANDOM PLACES. DOES ANYONE KNOW WHY??

 

I AM ON A PC, WINDOWS XP

    In AICS5.5 the page origin is now upper left instead of lower left so all y values need to be negative to achieve the same result.

    In other words: Recreate your actions according to the new conditions.

    I'm having a similar problem, seems related, but I don't understand the issue.

     

    I have an object, with a center of 0,0.

     

    I am using the transform box to move this to 2,0.  I then make a copy of this, and move this copy to 4,0

     

    When playing this recorded action back, it does not repeat my results. 

     

    Would you happen to know why this is occuring?

     

    Regards,

    Ry
