Illustrator CC: Asset Export Panel

2016/09/13 Leave a comment

Well, this certainly would have been helpful when I was doing more App Development. A welcome addition nonetheless.

Seems pretty intuitive and straight forward, right?

InDesign: Ungrouping objects releases them back to their original layers

2016/07/07 Leave a comment

Screen Shot 2016-07-07 at 2.51.22 PMJust found this out, but when you group objects, InDesign places the group into one top level layer. BUT, when you ungroup it, InDesign releases it back to the original layers! This has been a great discovery for working with interactive overlays and interactive buttons.

Illustrator : Object > Line and Sketch Art

2015/09/23 Leave a comment

In Illustrator, there’s a new command under the Object menu called Line and Sketch Art. What the heck is it?

Well, apparently, it’s for working with the mobile apps, Adobe Illustrator Line and Adobe Photoshop Sketch..

So there, mystery solved

Illustrator: Curvature tool

2015/09/03 1 comment

Screen Shot 2015-09-03 at 2.30.20 PMThere’s a new tool for path drawing, and it’s called the Curvature Tool. I don’ t know if it’s because I’m so used to the pen tool, but this tool feels a bit weird to me. But basically, instead of straightlines being the default, curve lines are the default. you can still draw straight lines, but it takes a bit more work to do so (double click or alt click to change the type of anchor point it’s supposed to be). overall i found it to work pretty well, but it seems to have trouble drawing loops!

Also, if i select a loop (drawn with the pen tool) and with the curvature tool, once i click on the anchor point, it immediately changes it to a normal curve instead!

  • click to place anchor points
  • Illustrator connects points with curves
  • Double click / alt click to change the next anchor point to a straight point
  • hover back at previous points to edit
  • esc/cmd click to exit tool

InDesign: Print Booklet now works with Alternate Layouts

2015/05/22 Leave a comment

Screen Shot 2015-05-22 at 9.53.53 AMYes!

I have no idea when it got fixed, but now Alternate Layouts and Multiple pages sizes doesn’t screw up the Print Booklet function!.  In fact, when specifying a page range, you can select the name of your alternate layout from a dropdown menu!
