Problem deleting bullet point in Adobe Illustrator
Posted on 2006-07-19
I have an Illustrator document that I need to make a few minor changes to, and am having a problem with it. The version of Illustrator is 9.0, and I'm running it on Windows XP Pro. Here's what I have...
I have what would appear to be a text block, that has 10 items in it. To the left of each item is a square bullet point. If I grab the block and move it, the bullet points don't move, so they don't seem to have any real association with the text items. I can delete one of the lines, which I need to, in the block, but the bullets don't change. If I put the cursor over one of the bullet blocks, I get a small blue text at the tip of my cursor that says 'x anchor'. How do I manipulate these blocks?
As an aside, we also have InDesign; is this an alternative to Illustrator? Should Illustrator 9 be upgraded to the current version, if we are going to have continuous small changes to documents, or are the differences such that a novice wouldn't care?
