- Which version of InDesign, Illustrator and OS?
- Which file type do you use to save files from Illustrator to import into InDesign? EPS? Don't use it, use always AI.
- A screenshoot would be welcome to clarify your problem.
- "When I am working on the file with it open they are not there.. " Which program? Illustrator or InDesign? Ho do you detect it? Which preview quality do you use?
Thanks for asking Will....
I've gotten so confused with back issues of the file....saved in InDesign CC that I just started over..
Was simpler to do that than to try to fix the one I was working on.....
But while I have you trying to help me..
Could you tell me how to set the document setup for a new document in InDesign CC to inches?
I tried going into the preferences.... it's not there.. Looked through all of the preferences.. still can't find it.
The documents I'm working on are 47" x 28" or thereabouts and I am having to go back to InDesign 5.5
create the document there then open it in InDesign CC to have it the right size.
Thanks for your help!
Inchaes are available, you can also write it directly into any box to verwrite a given unit, I think it will be on your computer IN, here with a German version I have to write Z instead, but " should work internationally.
If I try to overwrite and use in such as
for 56 in it converts it to what the p stands for and is way to large.. meaning it doesn't come out to 56 inches but I did find out
while looking around.... after you set the document up... that you can click on the rulers and it lets you chose different options.. picas..etc..
Then you can go back to document set up and change the numbers if they're wrong...
to set inches as the default units for new documents, set it in the prefernces with no files open. For exisiting files right-click either ruler to change units for that ruler, or right click the intersection of the rulers to set both at once.
