Join William Everhart for an in-depth discussion in this video Adjusting a dieline, part of Illustrator: Package Design.
…To ensure that our design fits the final package as closely as possible,…we've incorporated the actual CAD drawing from the converter into our design file.…Now, I want to make sure that the graphics from…the dye line are not misinterpreted as part of my design.…So the first thing I'm going to do is, turn…off all other layers except for the CAD layer.…So this reveals the colors that are being used for this particular dialog.…Now, I'm going to also open up my swatches panel here.…
Earlier, I had created a di cut swatch.…Now it is a spot color, so it will…not interact with the other colors used in my document.…And this will make life a little bit easier for…the converter when it comes time to print this document.…So what I need to do now is take all of the…lines that are in this new file and use this di-cut color.…Because I have turned off all of the other layers, I should be able…to just click and drag across my artwork and select all of those lines.…
Next I'll take a look over here at the bottom of the tools panel.…
