    Wij willen graag een helm ontwerpen zoals wij dat ook met stickersets doen.

    Dan downloaden we een template.

    Nu hebben we een helm in pdf maar als we er iets in willen maskeren dan krijgen we een melding van geen object geselecteerd.

    Hoe kunnen we de helm als een object maken ?

     

    Vriendelijke groeten,

    Hi Willem Jan,

    When you open the PDF file in EasySIGN as vector data you will see that the PDF file contains many single line curves. In order to create a mask, these lines need to be converted to one single object which can be used in EasySIGN as a mask afterwards. So in this case we recommend to select the lines which need to be used as a mask, and then use Arrange > Combine or CTRL + L

    As the PDF files contains many curves this can be time consuming depending on the number of curves that need to be used as a mask. Alternatively, you can check if the PDF file can be exported from the original design software as a combined vector object. This may save time in creating the objects which will be used for masking.

    Have an easy day!
