    Export to PNG

      Why does an exported png file crop a portion of this image? Thank you! Using CS3.

          panfried,

           

          Just a guess: because the cropping corresponds to the spines rather than to the outermost part of strokes.

           

          With stroked paths, you cannot count on the Bounding Box/Transform palette, unless you have Preview Bounds on (Preferences>General).

            Thanks, Jacob.

             

            There are no strokes, just paths. Is there a setting that I'm missing?

              Most likely you are doing everything right, it's just AI not correctly calculating the pixel content. A simple way to avoid it would be to apply an "inert" effect (e.g. drop shadow with 0% opacity) and then adjust the document raster effect resolution to add just enough pixels around such effects so your text doesn't get cropped.

                panfried,

                 

                Is the artwork, and its cropping, aligned with a grid a whole pixels? If it is, the Y value in the Transform palette with one of the lowest Reference Points chosen will be an integer point/pixel value (the same applies to the other three sides).
