When I was editing an illustrator file, I got quite a scare when all of sudden “undo” doesn’t work anymore. Not just the cmd+z doesn’t work, the whole “undo” function is ineffective. After taking some deep breath, when I was able to think again, I noticed that “undo” was only ineffective after I changed certain objects, in this case, a symbol. Changes of other elements were fine. I noticed a little framed “+” icon at the right bottom corner of the symbol thumbnail, now I learn that it is an icon to indicate that it is a “dynamic symbol”. Something like this:
Changing the symbol to “Static Symbol” fixed all the problems!!
Now I learned that “What you can’t do is move, delete, or even scale those individual elements.”

I hope it helps you if you encountered something similar.
Getting rid of stubborn files in TWO steps:
Step 1: Launch Terminal
Type “Terminal” in Spotlight, if you’d never used Terminal
Step 2: Type commands in Terminal:
Check which files are stored in Trash
Then remove the file “file_that_I_cannot_kill.dmg”
Add *.js, or *.jsx to Applications -> Adobe Illustrator CC -> Presets -> en_GB -> Scripts
“en_GB” is the languages code, so it can be different on your Mac OS.
Start or restart Illustrator
Go to menu: “File -> Scripts”. The script(s) you just added should appear in the list.
You can create a new document in Illustrator, you can choose the profile of that new document. In the newly created file, all symbols, swatches and Artboards will be the same as the template.
If you save an *.ai, or *.ait (illustrator template) file in the right place, you will see this template in this list as well.
Here is the place:
Users > $your_user_name# > Library > Application Support > Adobe > Adobe Illustrator $version number# > $language# > New Document Profiles
Now, give it a try!!
I’m using Google Chrome 41.0.xxxx.x on Mac OS 10.10.1. Apparently since version 35.0.1916.114, there is this “Chrome Notifications” icon in the system tray. I somehow just noticed today.
It looks like this:
You cannot really choose not to see this notification in the system tray from the settings of the notification itself:
If you don’t want to hide the notification icon in the system tray, you need to go to Chrome -> Hide Notifications Icon
Working in the IT section you are guaranteed to run into this cartoon at some stage:
It’s a pity that I can’t find out who is the original creator of this fantastic cartoon. My highest respect to the genius.
My first instinct is to call it:
Features are bugs in tux.
Now to make it worthy of the name, I modified it to this:
I just found a website that helps artist to sell their art work, mostly illustrations, graphic design and photos.
I couldn’t help to try out. This is my first Society6 graphic design:
