3D Extrude and Bevel in Illustrator CS 3

I am trying to apply Illustrator's 3D extrude and bevel effects to 2 pie charts that I created in Illustrator. The first pie chart (with only 3 segments) worked fine. However, the second pie chart (with 8 segments) is taking on a 3D appearance, but the 3D edge is black rather than taking on the colors of each segment. I thought that it had something to do with the number of segments in the pie chart, but I tried it on other pie charts with 7, 6, 5, 4, and another one with 3 segments. Unfortunately none of them worked correctly. Also, the values in the bevel and extrude dialog box were identical for the pie chart that turned out fine and the others that did not. Any ideas?

Re: 3D Extrude and Bevel in Illustrator CS 3

Chances are you have chosen 'stroke' color as 'blank/empty' in the first pie chart, and 'stroke' color as 'black' in subsequent charts, by mistake. So as a result the charts are having a black outline. You simply have to select 'stroke' or 'outline' color as blank as you did in the first chart. Colors can be chosen in the 'swatches' palette, either for 'fill' or 'stroke' or both. Hope this solves the problem.

Adobe illustrator cs2 request code


I want to mention that the activation server for the Adobe CS2 products were removed and hence the CS2 and previous version can not be activated now.

If you have purchased the Illustrator CS2 then you can contact Adobe support and then they would provide you an alternate to get the Illustrator CS 2 working.

I cant open a new file, template or old file. My Illustrator CS just crashes. Please help

Double click on My Computer on your desktop and open C:>Documents and Settings > User >Application Data > Adobe > Adobe Illustrator CS2 Settings. (Your version of Illustrator will be in the foldr name.) Inside this folder is a file called AIPrefs. Drag this file to the trash, and restart Illustrator. Reset any custom preferences you want, and when you close Illustrator the preferences file will be regenerated.

You can also reset Illustrator's preferences by holding down Shift + Control + Alt while launching the program. If you get a dialog asking if you want to delete the Adobe Illustrator settings folder, click yes to proceed. Restart Illustrator. Reset any custom preferences you want, and when you close Illustrator the preferences file will be regenerated.

Converting text to an object

Select the type object (the Select tool must be used, not the type tool); then from the menu, choose: "Type," then, "Create Outlines." The text will become an object, with multiple lines and curves, fully editable, by each point or line.
