png export bug?
on Nov 7, 2010 at 11:38:03 pm

Hello all,

I'm trying to export a png file from Illustrator without using artboards, even though I'm selecting black background for the final file all I've been able to get is a white background png. I already tried different resolutions and with and w/o artboards, all to no avail.

Does anyone have this bug too or am I doing something wrong?

Thanks in advance,

D.

What do you mean by "selecting black background"? You cannot "select" any color for the background in AI. Instead, you have to manually create a background, like drawing a black rectangle around the artboard.

Actually yes, you can.

You need to switch the first color of the transparency grid (File>Document Setup) and then turn on Simulate Colored Paper, after that the trick is to NOT turn on the transparency grid. See attached.



But that's not what I was referring to, when exporting to png, allegedly you are able to select any color you want for the background, that is not working as it's supposed to, right now it only exports to either transparent or white, but not black or any other color. See attached.

You see, you're making things complicated.

I believe I already mentioned it. Just draw a colored rectangle as the background.

I've only used Illustrator's Export option to save flattened print files or layered PSDs.
Changing the background color seems to work when you Save For Web...

I just encountered the same bug, still there in CS6 (what a surprise).

I have a simple shape filled with white. Exporting as a PNG with transparent background works fine. If I select any other color for the background in the PNG export dialog, I get an all-white file.
