    Photoshop Rectangle Stroke
    deniedaccess
    Hi,

    When using the Rectangle Tool (set to Shape) and applying a stroke I get an unwanted bevel effect. How can I remove this so all lines are equal? Thanks.

    In the '80s, I lived in a city with a lot of Maori people. When McDonald's opened up there, it was designed like a traditional Maori meeting house (marae) with wooden carvings of local Maori legend and...

    Before you change all the files, you better get some proper printed proofs so that you know for sure that the colour you are changing the files to is correct.

    Ways to improve this:
    Turn off hyphenation or set it to words with 10 characters or more.
    Add automatic spacing after each paragraph. I use 2mm or 3mm.
    Headers would be a good idea....

  • .ai in finder

    I'm trying to remember if there is a way that you can see .ai previews in "Finder." The computers here are too slow to use the file browser in Photoshop, and we don't have adobe bridge on these computers.
    I know there is some way to do it, but my searching abilities are failing me right now.

      I meant some way to see thumbnails. Not through the "chain finder" or whatever that third view is called.

          I haven't been able to get it to work, although oddly, when I search in a finder window for files containing .ai, it shows a thumbnail preview in the search results.

              Illustrator doesn't save a preview image as part of the .ai files, as far as I can tell. In the places where you can see a preview, it's being generated from the actual file data using preview app. That's quite slow, so Finder doesn't do it.

              If file previews are important to you, use Bridge. It will generate a preview of nearly anything.

                  Crud, I just assumed that is was do-able since Windows can do it. Oh Well, I don't much care about my work any more since they gave me a 1% raise !

                    Wow a whole one percent. That sucks. If you work real hard you might have enough extra every payday to buy a gallon of gas.
