Bounding box issue - In design CS6

I keep having problems with page content disappearing and then the "unable to set bounding box" alert popping up when I try to remedy.
This is a 600+ page user manual with 100s of screenshots. I have a fair amount of page breaks in the doc, and the issue seems to be related to this (although I am not sure). Can anyone please give me some advice on this? Thank you!

Already did today’s CS6 update – no change
@TechWriter_ID – I'm a little confused…
What exact update do you refer to?
CS6? CC? So how is your exact version number?
My exact version for CS6 is: CS6( and I had no update notification today…
German version on OSX 10.7.5.

  • AE CC 2014.1 - layer selection and bounding box issue.

    Upgraded to AE CC 2014.1 yesterday and now the Bounding Box around layers does not appear when hovering the mouse down the layers in the timeline.
    When dealing with many overlapping layers, a quick way of finding elements was to hover the mouse down the layers in the timeline which then showed a bounding box around that layer in the composition window.
    Am I missing something? Has this been omitted... or is there a preference I can't see... or is this a bug?

    Hi Tom,
    I will say only this, and then nothing further on this thread, on the discussion of the new user interface design in After Effects CC 2014.1. (I dislike thread hijacking.)
    We are looking at all of the feedback being provided. We want to you to voice your opinion. Please be specific as to what problems you are having with the new user interface design.
    I also want to note here that the blue color alone is not what is generating feedback. "Blue" is being used as a collective term for the changes, but I fear that such generalization is creating a false impression that simply changing the color will resolve the complaints. There have been many, many small changes of which the highlight color is only one. We need to hear specifically from you which of the changes you dislike, whether it's the blue color specifically, or the brightness/contrast of the blue, or the brightness or design of other parts of the user interface, and in which contexts it causes a problem.
    So please let us know what you think, here on the forums in a new thread or one of the existing threads, or send us your feedback privately:
    You haven't seen many replies from us on the other threads because we want to receive your honest feedback. The new user interface design has been available to you for all of one week as of today, and now is the time for us to listen to you.

  • Remove Bounding Box (Photoshop CS6)

    since Photoshop CS5 (Mac), there is always shown a grey bounding box around the content of the selected layer, when I move it. For CS5 there exists a plugin, that removes this terrible box, but it doesn't work anymore with CS6.
    Can anyone help me to get rid of this awful "feature"?
    Thanks a lot

    I don't know if this is a more recent addition to CS6, but at least now there's another way to get rid of that bounding box. Select the move tool, and there should be a check box to "show transform controls", which ought to do the trick.
    The original post was about a different kind of "bounding box" that was showing up as a lazy non-tracking grey annoyance as you dragged layers around in the first iteration of PSCS6. Adobe provided a plugin to deal with it (mentioned above) and that worked. The latest version (13.0.4) doesn't seem to have this bug anymore and the plugin appears to be no longer neccessary.
    The Transform Control "bounding box/handles" element has been around for quite some time. Two different things. However,  your post prompted me to check the plugin fix. I removed it and discovering it was no longer needed. Leaving in place does no harm either.

  • CS6 - Pattern making. How can I use a bounding box to define the pattern size?

    I want to create a pattern in cs6. As in the previous versions of illustrator, I'd like to be able to use a bounding box to tell the computer where I want the pattern to start etc. In cs6 I can't seem to be able to do this. Once I hit 'make pattern' the bounding box is different and it becomes really difficult to define where I want the pattern to start. The pattern making part of illustrator seems to get confused and ends up throwing out my pattern completely. Any ideas?

    Create a nofill/nostroke rectangle where you want to have the boundaries, then move it down beneath the artwork in the Layers palette and include it in the swatch. That is the way to define the boudaries.

  • Bounding Box Overlap Print Issues - Very FRUSTRATED?

    Someone with more knowledge than I, please help.
    I have created several works in AI. In nearly all of them I've had issues printing to .pdf especially when the bounding boxes for my text elements overlap each other.
    The result when printed is an occluding/blocking/masking of the text so that the color is not correct and there is a clear line where the bounding box is overlapping the text elements.
    This seems to be happening regardless if the two text boxes are in the same layer or separate layers.
    For the life of me I can't figure out how to make this a NON-issue.
    Can someone please provide me with an answer. I have a deadline to meet and this is driving me out of my mind.
    Thank you. Thank you.

    Any way you could post a screen shot of the problem?  Is text getting clipped?  Not sure if a bounding box would effect anything related to color.  I usually apply a locked holding line around the document ( i.e., if the document is 8.5 x 11", create a holding line [ rectangle ] 8.5 x 11 with no stroke, no fill ).  Then, the PDF will technically hold all of the contents without anything getting clipped.

  • Can I turn off the "transformation bounding box" feature in CS6?

    The Transformation Bounding Box is the resultant "square selection" that includes all selected objects and it bugs me. I found discussions of this in connection to CS5 but I jumped from CS4 to CS6. I can't find a pref anywhere to turn it off.
    Does anybody know how?
    Thanks for any insight.

    I sure haven't been able to find a pref for it! Looked everywhere…
    That's too bad… the same complaint was addressed in CS5 thread I found and one of the Adobe guys provided a link for a feature request. I guess that request was rejected!
    C'mon, Adobe… this one seem simple. Please?

  • Bounding box bug CS6 (Creative Cloud)

    Anyone else have the bounding box occassionally stick to an object? I can select other objects but the bounding box will extend across the artboard from the new object and group the older object with it. I can't click off of the object either. I think it's mainly a text box problem, I can't recall having this problem with shapes or path drawn objects. I just fixed it by isolating it then immediately jumping out of that isolation, it was suddenly unselected. Anyway, just checking in with other users, wanted to catalog this at least.
    EDIT: Just had this happen with a photo in illustrator, as well as a circle I just clicked off from creating. The only hinderance it brings is that scaling, rotating, etc. is directly correlated to both selected objects rather than the one I intend to scale or rotate, etc.

    I've seen this happen on and off since the original CS. On both Mac and Windows systems across several OS versions. Sad to hear it's still with us in CC. I've seen it blamed on all sorts of things; text objects, clipping masks, imbedded / non-imbedded objects, a particular OS, etc. None of which have ever held true in all cases.
    Anyway, one way that (sometimes) solves it is to;
    Create another object, even a small square.
    Align the new object with the 'stuck' one - use any alignment at all. If another object moves, you can immediately undo.
    In any case, once you deselect and delete your dummy object after the align (or align and undo), four times out of five the stuck bounding box is gone (for a while, anyway).
    good luck.

  • Bounding boxes appear in Acrobat after exporting from InDesign

    Whenever I create outline fonts in my CS3 version of InDesign (I haven't upgraded to CS4 on this one program yet), I'm left with some very strange thin white lines surrounding some or all of the resulting letters that look suspiciously like bounding boxes. This never seems to occur if I don't create outline fonts, but simply embed the fonts and create a PDF using the Export command, so I have to believe the anomaly has something to do with this conversion process within the program. If I use illustrator CS4 to create outline fonts and then place them within my InDesign documents, I don't appear to have the problem. However, that's not a very desirable solution as it negatively impacts the fluidity of layouts and the ease of design, both of which I use in design for.
    And yes, these small thin white lines do print, so the problem is far more than merely academic.
    Has anyone else ever experienced this issue, and if so, how did you solve the problem (assuming you did)?

    Sorry about that, I apparently forgot to attach the file; have done so now.
    The method I'm using for creating outlines is simply to use the "Create Outlines" command under the Type menu within InDesign. Then I create my PDF files by using the Export command under the File menu and choosing the PDF/X1a option. 99% of the time I get perfect results, it's only when I try to make outline type that I encounter this problem. You'll clearly see the artifacts in question in the example attached.
    I don't know whether or not the press would have printed these artifacts, as you suggest, since no printer has been willing to execute a file that shows any anomaly in the proof process. I can't say that I blame them.
    Hopefully you will see what I'm talking about and can recommend a solution, though I like your idea of simply giving them a properly executed file and then telling them to get a life. It hasn't worked so far, as I unfortunately deal with a lot of Neanderthals around here, but I suppose it's worth putting forth again the next time this issue arises. It will.
    By the way, no print house of my choosing is this far behind the curve, if at all. These cavemen are always printers who have long-standing relationships with my clients, and for whatever reason (generally lowest cost I'm sure), the clients think they hung the moon. We, of course, no otherwise, but it does it profit a designer to tell his client he or she is crazy for using a printer who is a decade behind the technology curve.
    We cowboy up and seek solutions, eh?

  • CS2 Need to set text bounding box to snap to exact measurement, not em size and without leading

    I am currently using CS2 working in a sign shop designing signs, banners and vehicle lettering.
    When working with text I need to know the exact letter height, not the em and without the leading. I need it exactly the way it would measure if converting the text to outlines. The reason I need this information is that when I output the lettering to a cutter/plotter to cut vinyl media I need to know the exact measurement so I can nest my lettering on my media size. The media is typically 24" wide which gives me 22.5" of available space once the pinch rollers on the machine are considered. Pinch rollers are rollers that engage a knurled driving wheel and "pinches" the media between them and thus guides the media through the plotter. Of course, when using any media one must make the best use of it to avoid making scrap or using more than is needed for the job at hand. Converting text to outlines gives me that measurement.
    One time awhile back I did a google search on this and found a one or two button fix that made the bounding box snap to the exact "ruler" height of the text. It worked great. But I got away from design work for a short period. When I returned I'd forgotten the process. Back when I did find it I never bookmarked or made a text file explaining the process and I'm ost in finding it again.
    I don't know exactly how I worded the google search but the answer I was looking for came up on the first page. That's probably why I didn't feel the need to bookmark it or write it down. Now, I've googled dozens of different wordings for my question and get nothing. It's likely a nomenclature/jargon issue and I've yet to stumble on it again.
    If anyone could help out I would so greatly appreciate it. As it is, when I get to the point that I need to know the exact ruler height of my lettering I convert my text to outlines. But then, as sometimes happens, I'll desire to change the font or try someting different but the text is not live so I'll have to start over with that line of lettering.
    I sincerely hope my explanation of my questions makes sense to anyone who might be reading this.

    Jacob Bugge, you are a blessing. This effect not only saves me time but avoids a lot of frustration when a client wants to change some copy or I commit a spelling error or have some other brain malfunction. Not to mention the sometimes hundreds of single words or number groups I must fit onto an artboard set to my available media space.
    Option 2 is exactly what I was looking for and I'll remember it forever now as I've spent parts of the past week searching that answer only to hear over and over again, "You can't do that in Illustrator".
    Thank you so much for your quick response!

  • Bounding box of placed pdf 'reflecting' objects of parent Ai file... Not what I want!

    As a self-taught Illustrator CS3 user I keep running into confounding issues.  The latest is this:
    Artboard is US letter size.  I have a placed jpg image in the top half that extends beyond the artboard on one side.  Only want 3/4 of the jpg content
    in the final product.
    Some text at the bottom.
    All in all a basic poster. 
    A clipping mask hides the part of the image that extends past the arboard.
    I save this 'parent' Ai file as a copy PDF - no layers - no editing - no thumbnails ect.  Keep original Ai parent file for later editing.
    I want to put this PDF into another ai document, but when I do, the bounding box extends past the pdf content out to
    where the jpg image is in the parent Ai file.
    Why?  Why can't I save a pdf that produces a stand alone img/doc without any apparent connection to its 'parent'?  Why can't this just happen without me having to crop the original jpg in photoshop to fit the parent Ai document perfectly and or somehow crop the image in the parent Ai. 
    Oh, and I have tried the crop tool and "make" crop area under the Object menu that contains only what is showing on the artboard.
    Same result.
    PDF that in Preview shows correctly but when placed in another ai file somehow 'becomes' larger with a bounding box that includes much more than what is actually there.
    This is maddeningly stupid IMO.
    Hope someone can be that patient professor of the design/Illustrator course that I can't afford, but that I need so desperately all the time.

    I don't know; I just chalk it up as another instance of the sloppiness that permeates Illustrator, and the convoluted multiple nested clipping paths so common in PDFs.
    If I place the PDF as a Link, its bounding box corresponds to the clipping mask of the PDF.
    If I place the PDF embedded, not linked, then I get the result you describe.
    That arguably sort of makes sense in that, when you "place" (but embed) a PDF in Illustrator, you're really importing its content, including the nested clipping paths; and AI CS3 and prior always displays the bounds and edges of masked portions of clipping paths. When you "place" the PDF as a link, it's a preview that displays on the page, as if you were just linking a raster image.
    In CS4 and CS5, Adobe finally fixed the silliness of displaying edges of masked portions of the content of clipping paths, so in those versions, it probably acts the way you want whether linked or embedded. (I only have CS3 on this laptop, so can't verify right now.)

  • Drag Bounding Box not going away

    Hey guys,
    I use photoshop about 12 hours everyday for design, so this is a pretty big issue for me:
    After a while of working, when I use the move tool, the drag bounding box comes up and stays.
    I've been advised in THIS THREAD to install the "DisableDragBoundingBox.plugin" from the optional plugins.
    I did. I put it in the root plugins folder as well as the optional plugins folder within the plugins folder. But nothin' doin'. The box still shows up and annoys the hell out of me. It's too noticable on a 15" MBP.
    Does anyone have this problem too? I can't stand having to restard photoshop 5000 times a day. Have i not installed the plugin correctly?
    Thanks for your time
    your designer pal,

    Okay, so far I've been running photoshop for a few hours and it didn't occur. I turned the OpenGL mode in advanced settings to Advanced and turned off Anti-Alias Guides & Paths. I bet this problem is because of OSX, because there's no reason why the graphics card should be whacking out on a stock 15" MBP purchased few months ago.
    I'll write once more to confirm the disappearance of the problem.
    Thanks to everyone!

  • Resizing in Illustrator CC using the Bounding Box is no longer accurate. What happened?

    In Illustrator CC, resizing an object using the bounding box is no longer accurate. Snapping to other objects or the grid or anything is completely wrong and, worse, inconsistent. Here is a single box being resized 3 times to the same object. Each time, it becomes a different size.
    I used the center-left handle to resize the black box, snapping it to the right edge of the red box. You can see that, each time, it "snaps" to the edge incorrectly. My 80 pt box becomes 78.479 pt, then 79.295 pt, then 79.518 pt.
    This is totally unacceptable, obviously. I'm not sure what the point of guides are if they aren't actually guiding. Does anyone have a fix for this?

    Did you reinstall after updating to Yosemite? I believe the right order/way is to update the OS first, then reinstall the applications, see 6) below.
    Or you may have a look at the list since something is obviously wrong.
    The following is a general list of things you may try when the issue is not in a specific file (you may have tried/done some of them already); 1) and 2) are the easy ones for temporary strangenesses, and 3) and 4) are specifically aimed at possibly corrupt preferences); 5) is a list in itself, and 6) is the last resort.
    1) Close down Illy and open again;
    2) Restart the computer (you may do that up to 3 times);
    3) Close down Illy and press Ctrl+Alt+Shift/Cmd+Option+Shift during startup (easy but irreversible);
    4) Move the folder (follow the link with that name) with Illy closed (more tedious but also more thorough and reversible);
    5) Look through and try out the relevant among the Other options (follow the link with that name, Item 7) is a list of usual suspects among other applications that may disturb and confuse Illy, Item 15) applies to CC, CS6, and maybe CS5);
    Even more seriously, you may:
    6) Uninstall, run the Cleaner Tool (if you have CS3/CS4/CS5/CS6/CC), and reinstall.

  • Is there a way to tighten a text bounding box?

    Hey all,
    I've looked before but never found a definitive answer to this question:
    Is there a way to tighten the text bounding box without converting it to outlines?
    I work for a screen printer, and want to figure out a way to tighten the bounding box without changing the leading and without converting it to outlines in order to be able to edit said text. We deal with a lot of clients who send us names, that are often misspelled, and after an initial proof need to be corrected. Sometimes we need to center this text to an object.
    Illustrator's bounding box, unlike that of Corel (which is our primary program, and won't open AI files) includes the leading below the type, so when you center it, it's not visually centered:
    So I guess my real question is is there a way to get the text centered (as seen below) without converting the text to outlines, or messing with the leading, or is there a way to tighten the bounding box?
    Thanks in advance!

    Combat and Dandreu,
    You may use this silly way:
    1) Tick Edit>Preferences>General>Use Preview Bounds;
    2) Select the Type and Effect>Path>Outline Object.
    That will reduce the Bounding Box to the actual bounds of the letters so you can centre as you wish.
    Remember to untick Edit>Preferences>General>Use Preview Bounds before you get a reverse issue.

  • Can you view text outside of the canvas? as with the view menu you can see animation paths, bounding boxes and handles??? many thanks

    re: Motion 5
    can you view text outside of the canvas? as when using the view menu you can see animation paths, bounding boxes and handles???
    I'm in the middle of a text animation design treatment and unless my memory is completely failing I thought this was an option.
    An example would be selecting all layers and being able to see all bounding boxes and animation paths while moving along the timeline.
    Of course this could be quite a mess if you couldn't selectively chose which layers, its just with this current project it would be so helpful if
    I could see the text beyond the canvas to aid in my animations.

    what I'd like to do is selectively view, say, the text outside of the canvas as you can see the bounding box
    which contains the text or object when selecting one or all layers in the layers column
    I haven't used this feature in a while though I do recall using it in the past.
