Hi, hope I posted this in the right place… I’ve been looking everywhere and I can’t seem to figure it out so I hope people here will be able to help.
I use Illustrator CS and my top toolbar (like the one that usually has Live Trace options, etc.) completely disappeared. It doesn’t have the Default Workspace option like in CS2 which I use at work, so I don’t know how to get it back! I’m assuming I might have accidentally clicked some kind of shortcut (I use a Mac, btw) to make it disappear but I can’t figure out how to get it back. Can anyone help me?
I’m in CS3 (MAC) and this is what I go to for that toolbar: Window > Control
However, it may well be different in CS. If Control isn’t right, it will definately be in the Window menu somewhere.
Hope this helps.
Hmm I don’t think there is an option for Control window, I tried all the Windows in that menu but none of them were the top toolbar, just various other windows. Thanks for trying
You can get your default worskpace by going to Window menu in illustrator and it is the first or second option… i can’t remember right now…
You should have the options like default, minimal etc…
I had a really long day and if this is entirely incorrect… i’m sorry!
There’s no option for that under Window.
This is what my Window menu says:
Bring All to Front
etc.etc… I tried all of them and they’re all actual toolbars and not the top one I’m looking for.
I’m sorry… CS2 has the “Workspace” option under the Window menu. Didn’t know there was so much of a difference between CS and CS2.
I skipped CS and from 10 to CS 2. Hopefully someone with CS is here and will know!
I have Illustrator CS2, and just checked the New Features in the help menu. There are Live Trace and Control Panel new feature instructions.
Unfortunately I never used CS, I jumped to CS2, as conradical did, but it looks like these features were introduced in CS2.
Can you upgrade, and if you do, it’s well worth going to CS3, I am just discovering the Master Collection - Amazing upgrade.
