I have some serif type from which I've created outlines. I'm saving this doc as a pdf and also exporting it as a jpg so others can place it in different types of documents. I want to make a second version of the graphic by reversing the type onto a dark bkgrd. The pdf looks and prints fine but in the jpg the type doesn't appear. (All the nonserif as well as italic serif type has no problem). So I thought I'd put a white stroke around the problem bit of type. The white stroke appears in the jpg but it looks as if it's a white stroke around dark type, instead of a white stroke around white type, which is how it appears in Illustrator and Acrobat, and prints out as such. But once it goes to jpg, this problem occurs. I messed with the "knockout group" control in the transparency palette but didn't help. It's really got me stumped. Can anyone help?
Yes you have the white set to overprint i the attributes panel select the letter and uncheck the option to overprint the white.
This would only be good if there was a transparency setting of some kind for the white or for an effect using the white as shading device like a glow.
You'll get this without the overprint option checked
Thank you, that did the trick! really appreciate your expertise and help.
