i’m cutting quilt templates. The first two files I made in Illustrator I saved as PDFs. The inner marking line is for score, not cut; I used a diffferent color for those lines. it worked fine on parts D–G. However, the PDF for A B C is grouping the inner score and outer cut lines into one ‘cut’ operation.
I’ve checked and re-saved the files several times. I must be making a mistake on the ABC file that I’m not making on the other two. Can someone check my PDF and find the error?
the inner score line has a brush stroke, so it will score as discrete marks, not one solid line. In Illustrator, it’s a separate color, too…doesn’t show up in the PDF that way, though.

and just for comparison, here is one that works correctly:
F and G.pdf (2.6 MB)
[Edit: I went back in and changed the score brush lines to ‘black’, and the outer cut lines to a color. GFUI seems to like that more than the score lines as a color and the cut line as black. Still don’t know why that matters.]
