None, I am ashamed to admit. You have there RU. And I am now just
speaking facts like you.

Much appreciated to find a fellow sentient adult on these newsgroups!

Most of us were trained in the days of vacuum tubes, and we were taught
how to back up our facts like intelligent adults should.

LOL, when I was in college in the mid-seventies, they were using a
textbook from 1956, which was mostly about vacuum tubes, and had some
material on transistors. We asked the faculty to change textbooks and
they were happy to have an impetus to do so. Maybe they thought students
would be mad that there would be no used books available.

Don't worry about me. I've seen his profound rudeness

Hi David B.

I may owe you a sincere heartfelt public apology.


You don't owe David anything of the sort. Infact, you've been duped
by his come on snake charm.

However, you seem to be different from the average Apple poster
here.


I assure you, he's a technical halfwit on a good day.

What's *amazing* about you, which wouldn't be amazing for normal
adults, but for Apple users it's *astoundingly amazing*, is that
you actually provided a factual _reference_ in your posts.


He copy/pasted it from elsewhere.

What's /shocking/ to me is that you did *not* play that endless
game!


He's more into the stalking game variety.

So, kudos to you for being like an adult, and sincere heartfelt
apologies from me for assuming you were just another technically
incompetent Apple baby who could do nothing but silly semantic
games.


There's very little adult about David Brooks.

See the following link for more details, before you discover the hard
way you've encountered a dangerous online stalker.

Unless they need help with simplistic google style stalking, David,
they don't need you.

None of which is IT related. Apple or PC.

Yet again the 'Hosts' (moderators) on the ASC site have rejected

It was about this:-

Here's what was actually sent to me by email:-

David, remove the cross post to rec.photo.digital. All of this
crap between the nymshifter, and you is off topic for r.p.d.. If
you want to be pals with him, see if you can take it off Usenet.

Followup set to c.s.m.s.


I've little doubt David is already trying to think of a way to
exchange personal contact details with the nymshifting individual. If
he's able to do so, expect the individuals privacy to be forfeit.
That's how David Rolls, as you learned.

Update from the printers... the Mac Adobe Illustrator screwed up when it
read in the Window AI file with the fonts converted to shapes.

----- here is the email from the printer -----

We will figure it out. You don't need to do anymore.

When importing a file from an older version of AI into a newer version, the
layers collect information into what are called "compound paths". This
messes up what has been outlined somehow.

I can normally fix it, but the file from you has 10 layers of compound
paths, which is not normal. You didn't do anything wrong.

I hope to fix this file tomorrow for the guys to get the printing process
going.

Bull****.

So it was the 10 layers of compound paths, not the conversion of text to
paths.

Hi Alan Baker,

*Are you technically competent with Adobe Illustrator?*

I'm not, but the printers are supposed to be.
I can only tell you that I gave them a perfectly good set of files.

1. PPT 2007 with entire "Roadgeek 2005 Series B" font set embedded.
file.pptx

2. That file, saved as PDF, with fonts embedded, using the official MS Office SAVE-AS-PDF Utility.
file.pdf

3. That file sucked into Adobe Illustrator CS2, & with fonts substituted.
file_after_embedding_font_but_before_converting_to _shapes.ai

4. That file with fonts converted to shapes in AI CS2.
file_after_embedding_font_and_after_converting_to_ shapes.ai

5. That #4 AI-shape file saved as EPS from AI.
file_after_embedding_font_and_after_converting_to_ shapes.eps

6. That #4 AI-shape file saved as SVG from AI.
file_after_embedding_font_and_after_converting_to_ shapes.svg

7. The download of the font set where the only font used was:
Roadgeek 2005 Series B

If you're technically competent, maybe you can explain why the printers are
telling me that Adobe Illustrator created the "compound paths".

If you're not technically competent, then you'll just say "bull****", which
is what all the Apple Apologists say when they are confronted with facts
that they don't like.
--
HINT: Nobody has shown *any* technical competence in this ng yet, and
certainly you haven't. Meanwhile, I only speak fact and I supplied all
files so you know I only speak fact (yes, I know, you hate facts).

BTW, while it's a fact that the Mac Adobe Illustrator screwed up, it might
be the Adobe Illustrator and not the Mac that screwed up - which I can't
test and which wasn't tested - since we don't have a newer version of Adobe
Illustrator on Windows to test that out with.

So all I can state is the facts as they are presented to me.

I was hoping (beyond hope, as it turns out) that someone would be
technically competetent on this newsgroup - but there's zero chance of that
(which is why this thread was filled to the brim with Apple Apologists
bull****).

I've posted the same information to the adult newsgroup, where I expect a
solution or at least a technically competent explanation soon.

Thanks!
