Insertando LaTeX en Adobe Illustratro CS5 y posteriores


  1. Se asume aquí que usted tiene una distribución LaTeX completa, por ejemplo MikTeX o TeXLive.
  2. Copie las fuentes con extensión .pfm de

C:\Archivos de programa\MiKTeX 2.9\fonts\type1\public\amsfonts

C:\texlive\2013\texmf-dist\fonts\afm\public\amsfonts

a la carpeta de fuentes de Windows C:\Windows\Fonts.

3.      Descargue el script LaTeX.js de

http://www.latex-community.org/images/stories/illustrator/LaTeX.zip

4.      Descomprima el archivo .zip en

C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Illustrator CS6\Presets\en_US\Scripts

Nota: Tenga en cuenta que esto es para sitemas operativos de 32 bits; si es de 64bits ubique la ruta correcta y la explicación está realizada con CS6 (igual funciona con versiones CS5 y posteriores).

5.       Abra el script con un editor de texto (notepad++ o block de notas) y cambie la línea 66

for( var i=grp.pageItems[0].pageItems.length-1; --i>=0; )
Por:
for( var i=grp.pageItems[0].pageItems.length; --i>=1; )



6.     En Illustrator el script se llama via

File--->Scripts--->LaTeX  (si está en inglés)

Archivo--->Secuencia de comandos--->;Latex (Si está en español)

7. Ahora aparece una ventana flotante donde se debe introducir el código LaTeX entre  $$códigoLaTeX$$

8. Después de hacer clic en Aceptar de la ventana emergente el código se compila automáticamente, se convierte a PDF y este .pdf se inserta en el documento actualmente abierto en Illustrator en medio de la vista actual.


El script requiere pdflatex.exe instalado obviamente. Usted tiene que asegurarse de que la ubicación de pdflatex.exe está incluido en la ruta del sistema. Alternativamente, usted puede editar la primera línea del script y especificar pdflatex.exe con la ruta completa.

Illustrator (Spanish) does not start on Windows 8.1 computers

Starting Illustrator (Spanish) on Windows 8.1 computers results in an error

When you attempt to run Spanish-language Illustrator on a Windows 8.1 computer, an error message is displayed. When you click OK (Aceptar) in the error message, Illustrator does not start.

Solution (applicable to Spanish-language Illustrator only)

Due to a recent change in Windows 8.1, a newer version of an Illustrator file (Alcid.dll) must be placed in your Illustrator installation directory. Follow the steps in the procedure outlined below:
Caution:
Care must be taken to ensure you download, extract, and replace the right file (32- and 64-bit) for your Illustrator installation.
  1. On a computer that has Spanish-language Illustrator installed, download the appropriate archive file:
    Note:
    References to 32- and 64-bit are Illustrator-specific, and not OS-specific. For example, if you are using 32-bit Illustrator on a 64-bit computer, you must download the 32-bit file.
  2. Extract the contents of the archive file to a folder. In the extracted files, depending on which bit-type you chose, the required Alcid.dll file is found in the 32Bit or 64Bitfolder.
  3. Copy the Alcid.dll file to:
    • For 32-bit Illustrator: \Adobe Illustrator CC\Support Files\Contents\Windows
    • For 64-bit Illustrator: \Adobe Illustrator CC (64 Bit)\Support Files\Contents\Windows
    If you have Illustrator CS6, in the folder paths listed above, replace CC with CS6.
  4. When Windows prompts you for confirmation, choose to replace and overwrite the existing Alcid.dll file.
  5. Start Illustrator.
  6. If Illustrator fails to start, or you encounter an error 'Alcid.dll is either not designed to run on Windows or it contains an error. Try installing the program again...', check again if the right bit-type file has been placed in the specific bit-type Illustrator folder.

How to open a pdf in Illustrator if you don't have the fonts

How do I get mathematical fonts to Illustrator?




Let's suppose you receive a pdf document that you need to further work on in Illustrator, but when you open it all fonts get replaced by the default font, because you don't have those fonts used in the pdf. The font information is there in the pdf, so theoretically if you could convert all the text to outlines you would be able to work with the document.


flatten transparency window
To do that you have to open a new Illustrator document. Place the the pdf. Select the menu Object / Flatten transparency. Make sure to check the Convert all text to outlines option and go. You got the whole pdf in curves.
