kdubbie Posted February 24, 2009 Share Posted February 24, 2009 Hello, I want to thank anyone in advanced for any help they can offer. I've tried looking some of these up, but I just couldn't find an answer. I create show programs for Trade Shows, which usually includes a floor plan of where it's being held, with all the booth names, booth #s, etc. I receive a floor plan from someone as an AutoCad file and I need to bring it into Illustrator so that I can change the entire look of it. Bascially make it more "cartoony" (for a lack of better words) white booths with black strokes, a condensed font for the booth #s and extra condensed font for the booth names. What I am finding VERY frustrating is when I bring the .dwg file into Illustrator, each booth name that takes up two lines, gets chopped up, so, say for example: in AutoCad JOE SHMOE ENTERPRISES is all in one text box, but when I bring it into Illustrator, JOE SHMOE is one text box and Enterprises is in another. Am I importing it wrong? Why do my text boxes keep getting chopped up? Does anyone know how to prevent this? Of course, I would very much prefer to format every booth name at one time in AutoCad, does anyone know how I can select all Mtext on one layer, so that I may format everything at once? Do I have to change the color of the layer to change the color of the text? How do I change the Units from FEET/INCHES to points like in normal programs... Does MText/polymorph lines make a difference for commercial CMYK printing? If it does, how can I convert it to Mtext to text and polymorph lines to normal lines? Sorry for the long post and again, very much appreciate any assistance, Kdubbie Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
