Hello,

I get white lines in my seamless pattern in Adobe Illustrator CS3 and CS5. See the image. When I zoom came on a different location.

What I'm doing wrong.

Kind regards,

Bart

Illustrator pattern, from bottom up, should consist of:

1. A square that determines the boundary of the basic pattern, no fill, no stroke
2. A filled form, square or what ever for the background color. This one is omitted if there should be no background.
3. The pattern itself.

Many tutorials say that you should crop the pattern to the size of the bottom square which is not necessary . If that is done you risk getting these thin lines. They will probably not be seen when you print but it's irritating to see it on screen.

Try to let the black background bleed a little, that is, be a little bigger than the bottom square.

I just made a similar pattern as yours and got the same white lines although I used the bleeding.

These lines will not print though. You can see that even in 6400% enlargement the lines do not get thicker.

However, if you want to get the lines off your screen the best way is to turn off anti-alias.
