IDK anything, just learning tried multiple products so far AI is the only one I have accomplished anything in. My current issue may just be just be user error due to the lack of knowledge and experience. So I am designing new dash panels for an antique kenworth truck. The panels are flat with lots of round holes I have the old panels and have been taking measurements from them but I have experienced 2 problems #1 is that AI measures from the edge of the art board. #2 I cant seem use the edge of the art board as the edge of the project because it cant be modified to have radius corners and wiggles and skwiggles its very much stuck as a rectangle
Joshua, it seems like the one problem and not two! :)
If i am getting this right, you want the 0,0 coordinates to be positioned not where the artboard starts, but elsewhere? This can be done – show rulers with Ctrl+R, hover over the place where the horizontal ruler intersects with the vertical one, grab it and drop it over a new place you want your zero to be. You can do it quite precise if you enable Smart Guides (and disable Snap to Grid, they don't work together well).
Please comment back.
