Applications

Applications Rollover sample

On this page you will find various tips and information which I have found over time about various applications. Mainstay stuff and the quirky kind of things that should be simple but make you crazy. K will be updating as I can on a regular basis. I will include links, where available, to the source of the information found. I may even be including downloadable files and pdfs.

I hope you find this information useful.

Photoshop Tips

My brother and I both use Photoshop. However, when he watches me and vice versa, it is as if we are using two different applications. Photoshop has so much to it, so many tools and options that I think it is used differently by every user. Whenever I get together with someone that is a Photoshop user I will inevitably learn something and they from me.

Having said that, what you will find here is a kind of random collections, I hope, useful things that I have gleaned over the years and various versions of Photoshop.

Example by creating evenly spaced lines:
  1. Press Cmd + Optm + T
  2. Place your pointer on the path, press Shift and drag downward to create a duplicate
  3. Position the duplicate fairly close to the original, then press Return
  4. Press Cmd + Opt + Shift + T repeatedly until the entire image is covered with evenly-spaced lines.

Creating a link to a New Browser/Popup Window

Snippets

Snippets Location

One day I opened Dream weaver and alot of my settings were gone. One, Snippets, is a lot of work.

I finally found the files in:

  • username/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Dreamweaver CS6/en_us/Configuration-1/Snippets/Mine

I had to copy them to:

  • username//Library/Application Support/Adobe/Dreamweaver CS6/en_US/Configuration/Snippets/Mine

Creating a link to a New Browser/Popup Window

To have a link open in a separate window other than a normal window, you can add behavior to the link.

  • When you create links you use the Target selection to determine if the link opens in:
    _blank loads the linked file into a new, unnamed browser window.
  • _parent loads the linked file into the parent frameset or window of the frame that contains the link. If the frame containing the link is not nested, the linked file loads into the full browser window.
  • _self loads the linked file into the same frame or window as the link. This target is the default, so you usually don’t need to specify it.
  • _top loads the linked file into the full browser window, thereby removing all frames.

However, if you want to load the link into a Pop-up or modified window ypu can add a behavior to the link

Select the link and click in the Behaviors palette and select Open Browser Window:

Browser Popup Window

Here you can set the variable as you wish.

Columns using CSS without separate divs

The following columns style, inside of a paperContent div, was found in a Lynda lesson about Web Fonts. The notes from the video are in "Creating Multi-Column Text from Lynda.txt" The botton two lines are the main standard, the first four lines are for Firefox and other browsers The 1.6em is just the number he used I can make it anything I want. This property is not supported in IE or Opera so make sure the page works either way.
