    Sometimes you need to zoom way in in order to create space between points. Sometimes you need to lock shapes and lines in order to work over them. Sometimes you need to put things on different layers...

    Having started designing solely with Photoshop and finally migrating to Illustrator I'm still struggling with some things in Illustrator that seem really basic from the surface.
    I'm really struggling...

    The design itself is nice but yeah, the guys at Disney are fiercely protective of their property

  • Microsoft WORD etc HELP

    Hi guys
    It's been awhile.
    I need some help I'm using Microsoft Office on my Mac at work( yes I know I should be using Apple work but...long story)
    Anyway sometimes when I am opening Word or Excel it tells me that my fonts are corrupt and I need to optimize... so I click ok and THEN it proceeds to list ALL the fonts in my font base (yes I said ALL I think I have over 100) and I have to click OK for each-and-every-one-of-them including the Chinese looking stuff. HELP how can I stop this or turn off optimize or whatever. Our Tech guy says it's a virus - but it only affects WORD? I dont get it do you?

    It sounds like a font management problem. What OS are you on? What font utility are you using?

      I think if you hold Control when clicking the first one it OK's all the rest of them too.
      It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn't use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like "What about lunch?" Winnie the Pooh

          I am having "kind of" the same problem. I am using Suitcase. When I open Word or Xcel, I get this error from Suitcase:

          "There was a conflict when attempting to activate the font Memphis in the suitcase L Memphis Light for this document. Please close the document and resolve the conflict in teh Suitcase application." Issue? I'm not opening a document. I have the font collection Memphis already open, which I use quite frequently, but for some reason, Word and Excel are trying to use this other Memphis Font. I don't see a way to change it. Once I click OK, everything is fine, it doesn't take me to the font correction thing. So do you know how I can get rid of this problem?

            Are you using a font utility program, such as FontBook or Suitcase? It sounds like you aren't. Give budafist control thing a shot.
