Add Texture - shape "too complex"?

I'm trying to take shape and add a texture bitmap (will get a texture vector in the end, it was just a dry). I did it to my blue circle placed on the texture, expanding appearance, by selecting the two and pressing command + 7:

Now, I want to do the same thing with this orange form so I place on top of texture, expand appearance, select both and press command + 7, resulting a popup:

I click 'yes '. Nnothing happens and my form is invisible:

The orange circle was created using the shape tool, selecting and applying art brush. The orange form was the same way, but with an artistic brush more grungy. The brush is really the problem? :/

BTW, I'm doing a better version of this:

First make the expanded form as a compound path. If you don't do this, your extended form is simply a group of shapes, and Illustrator will inexplicably make everything disappear if you try to use a group as a clipping mask. You would think he would use at least the shape of leading the group as the mask, but it is not yet that.

  • Clipping mask, too complex object, cannot use either bitmap

    Hi all

    I'm in Illustrator CS4, trying to make a page that contains the content I want to integrate into a rounded rectangle.  Seems pretty easy.

    I managed to paste content into a rounded rectangle, so far.  Now I have a page that is apparently 'too complex '.  There a lot of transparencies and degraded them and others.  Once I try to do the clipping mask tells me it is very complex and cannot print or work right.  I go ahead anyway, and it seems just white/invisible.

    Then I thought to plans of work could be a way to do this, but I couldn't see how you could make a work plan which is one shape other than a rectangle (I want a rounded rectangle).

    So I thought that if export the bitmap and then rebonding in it, maybe I could integrate the bitmap in the rounded rectangle.  Pain in the butt, but I'm looking for any solution.  But it still works because it says that the selected object must be "a path, a compound shape, a text object or a group of people.  If a bitmap can be used

    Someone had better luck with this?  In CorelDraw, I always just placed objects, regardless of the level of complexity, in a 'container' with no problems.  Certainly, there is a way to do the same thing here.  This drawing is not * that * complex.

    Thanks in advance for your advice!

    Sounds to me as if the rounded rectangle you are trying to use as a clipping mask is not the top-level object.

    I hope it's as simple as that, even when...

  • How can I add more shapes to my shapes menu pages?

    How can I add more shapes to my shapes menu pages?

    There is no provision for adding forms customized forms in the menu in Pages ' 09 v4.3 or in any version of v5 Pages.

    You can keep your forms customized in a separate document of the Pages and then paste them as needed in your present work.

    You can copy the form customized to the Clipboard and then choose in the menu file preview: new from the Clipboard. Now you can export this form in your favorite image format and re-use in the future efforts of Pages.

    Hi livelabel,.

    Please use the forum for answers,

    You can uninstall all the driver/software HP printer utilities.  Visit the HP Web site for the last download driver and utility, reinstall them after rebooting your system.
    Also contact HP any known issue with SP2 for your printer model.  Make sure that file for the print job size is not greater than the printer can handle.

  • Too complex selection

    Hello

    I have a problem when you try to extrude a selection in 3D, I get the error message that the path is too complex. In fact, it's a simple selection of a fairly simple font (ObelixPro). Is someone else knows it or have a fix?

    I searched the forum but saw no recent data so thought I would start a new question.

    I use PS on an iMac with Mac OS 10.11.5 2015.5.0

    Thank you

  • Add bookmark window too small

    Someone find the window that appears when you add a bookmark of WAY TOO SMALL. If you have more than 6 folders he creates through a small window to search for a folder.

    Obviously, you did not address the following in the page of the add-in:

    • Second image, 2nd row: you can choose the items to display in the bookmark ABH2 dialog box
    • Second image, 1st row: the 'resizer' allows you to drag some of the vertical panel dialogue ABH2 lengths

    Use the slider along the left side of the Panel in the area of records to display all your bookmarks just as you must do in the window of the library if you have more that will fit the allocated space.

    To access the options:

    • OSX: Firefox > Modules > Extensions
    • Windows: Tools > Modules > Extensions
    • Linux: Edit > addons > Extensions
    • Then click ABH2, click Options

    Not interested in try Safari. Tried chrome and didn't like either.

  • A texture image conversion complex in a simplified vector graphic

    Hello

    I have a complex of water chart, I'm trying to simplify and vectorize. I manipulated the image in Photoshop to bring out the contrast and tried pathing image then export paths to illustrator, but the size of the file was obviously great same situation bringing the TIFF in Illustrator and use the vectorization. Is there anyway between programs or both, I can simply and smooth the vector illustration to shall declare the size of the file and make it easier to manipulate, size, color, ect. ? I use the image as texture and it doesn't have to be complex, I would just flow and structure lines.

    I've attached a screenshot of the TIFF Photoshop file I created off the coast of the original photo of the water and the vectorized version, that I have done, by using vectorization, in Illustrator. The vectorized version is a bit unstable and complex. I don't know you have a thing or the best way to do it.

    Thank you very much.

    Color will be easier to handle after vectorization.

    And if you do not want to lose details will not get fewer anchor points.

  • The program in XP ' Add/Remove Programs' too much for Agere Systems HDA Modem - 6.4 GB size program!

    Add/Remove program on laptop HP515 reported the size of the Agere Systems HDA Modem as being program
    3,582.00 MB (3.5 GB) you want to assume this is a mistake, because the driver was last updated was 2006 and Agere was acquired by LSI. However - this computer he'd have removed the ThinkPoint (via AVG2011 anti-virus) virus with
    no trace, if the elements of the manual removal in the registry, so AVG you all this?

    So I tried to remove the program, which needs software modem dialup? and disable it in Device Manager

    After having removed via Add/Remove programs when you restart it himself reinstalled w / no prompts
    After uninstalling the Manager of devices, same thing except that now it says the size of the program is 6 437,00 Mo!

    Will be not deleted or disabled after reboot. Next step is to open up the laptop and see if the modem can itself be without shearing of the Board of Directors, if that will not trigger the re - install software
    Can find no other reference to this problem anywhere, hope it's just a will and
    the GB are not counted against the count of HD space.

    On another laptop running Vista home the same modem is shown no program size, just empty.

    There are a TON of malware which is legit software.  No way to list them here.  All we can do is get anti-virus software AND software to search for malware (in some cases, you may two or three different types of software.)  I myself use AVAST, MalwareBytes and Spybot and AdAware. --

    Hello korgri,

    It seems that you still have a problem with remmants of the virus that you had deleted. I'll try again with other anti-virus or scanning software to see if there is still a problem.
    You must disable AVG before using a 2nd antivirus. You can download Microsoft Security Essentials. Clickhere for a link to the Microsoft Antivirus.

    I also suggest an Inplace upgrade which will help you to repair your operating system. You will need a CD/DVD of the XP operating system.
    Click on the KB article number below to view the instructions for an Inplace upgrade.

    After the upgrade on the spot, your personal data and installed programs will not be deleted, but we will have to run Windows Update to install all the updates that are available for your system to update these files system to the current version. This troubleshooting process is very long and can last several hours.

  • You can add a shape in Illustrator to your form library to be used inside the draw?

    I have a few files of logos and some stuff already created in vector that I would use as "shapes" in the draw... I have them in a CC library... but when I go to the draw and try to change for this library, it says "0 shapes.

    How can I do this?

    I prefer not to have to save them in JPEG format and load them on my phone, and then form to recognize them in the adobe form CC CA. seems there should be an easier way.

    Unfortunately, Adobe draw currently supports only forms that have been created by the application of form to Adobe. It currently does not support generic svg or svg files exported from Illustrator. Your request is not uncommon, but I have no info on if or when that will be supported.

    Hope that helps,
