I need to create a set of colored "bullets" to use in a book I'm working on (each chapter has its own bullet with its own color).
These bullets are really simple:
- the document size is 1 cm (width) by 2 cm (height)
- the bullet itself is a disc (diameter = 2cm) with a horizontal offset of -1 cm, so, after exporting, I get something like this:
(screenshot from Preview, black is the background color of the Preview document window not part of the bullet)
As you can see, there's a problem: some parts of the bullet are truncated (at the top and right sides)!
Here's the way I use to create this Art Text document:
- for the bullet itself:
- for the background (yes, I need a white background):
Note the decimal values (0.99 or 2.01)!
I can't get 1.00 or 2.00 values even when typing them correctly!
Maybe this is the source of this problem?
Also, note that this problem exists in AT itself, so before exporting.
