Just wondering if anyone knows how to clear the crosshatching that gets applied to the fills of some objects when importing from usually .ai files. It stays when you change color. Here's an example. I'm not sure but I believe this was an AI import. Text is editable as normal but when you're in text edit mode the hatching goes away. It reappears when you leave editing mode though. Converting text to graphics doesn't help.

Welding clears it but I would like to preserve the text if possible.

It's got an overprint set on the text. It's part of the AI/PDF spec, and it means at some point in it's design history, someone applied an overprint to the text. Long term solution you would want to identify and correct this design behavior.

Short term you can set the text to Knockout (instead of an overprint setting). They are the small red/blue boxes on the Prime Palette (located bottom of your screenshot).

Ah genius! I knew it had to be something simple. This is usually in files we get from clients. Doesn't happen often but when it does it is frustrating.

Thanks Hubert
