Sorry about that, I don't know why it just posted 3 of those in less than a second. I was typing and it just gave me an error saying the forum requires 10 seconds before posting again... don't understand how I could have posted 3 times in that amount of time... so sorry. :/ So on to my real problem. I've done a search, didnt turn up any results. The only problem people seem to be having with AICS is that it quits on them. I have an entirely different problem. When I use Illustrator the guide lines are not blue. They are, in fact, black. If I drag another guide (parallel or perpendicular to the first) over the first one, it will "uncover" parts of the blue line. If I do get some blue showing, as soon as I scroll, they all go black again. Almost every time I want to move one of them, I have to click unlock guides. If I neglect to unlock them and click on a guide, it takes me to the Finder. If I am trying to move an object, and I place it on a guide, often times it will make a picture clipping and save it to my desktop. I have no clue what this means. It happens the same way on my tower and on the laptop which I was issued by my school. I am using the KeyAccess version of AICS on both computers, downloaded from the school's server. It is the full version, the only difference being that it requires access to our key server to open. So I don't see how that could be the problem, however I have no hard copy to check this theory. I have repaired permissions, trashed pref and .plist files, and even zapped pram and run fsck on both machines, to no avail. I am completely and utterly confused. Does anyone know what I can do? Thank you!
