Illustrator Bezier Waggle

2018/03/06 Leave a comment

A buddy and I noticed what we think is a bug in Illustrator a long time ago. It seems to make its way into each new version of Illustrator

If you make a path with the pen tool, then go back and select the bezier handle with cmd (white arrow tool), then add space bar (to move the anchor point) the other, unselected bezier handle seems to waggle as you move the anchor point, and it gets longer and longer as it goes…

Here is a video… Bug or Feature? you decide!


Adobe Creative Suite CC: Indic Language Support

2014/07/30 1 comment

I think this applies to many of the major programs, but not sure. Indic Languages include Bengali, Gujarati, Hindi, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, Oriya, Punjabi, Tamil, Telugu

For Photoshop : Preferences > Type > Choose Text Engine Options >  East Asian / Middle eastern & South Asian

For Illustrator : Preferences > Language Option > Show East Asian Options / Show Indic Option

For InDesign: Don’t see anything in preferences, but there is apparently a script you can run.

Photoshop CC: Use Camera RAW as a Filter

2014/07/30 Leave a comment

Screen Shot 2014-07-29 at 5.02.56 PMYou can now use Camera RAW as a regular filter. You no longer have to open your JPEGs as camera raw if you just want to use some of Camera RAW’s settings and sliders. Go to Filter > Camera RAW. This also means you can apply Camera raw beyond traditional image types, and use it on PNGs, videos, and more. Cool Beans!

Creative Cloud 2014: The Creative Cloud

2014/07/11 Leave a comment

Screen Shot 2014-07-10 at 7.34.16 PMAll the application updates aside The Creative Cloud Panel thing has a nifty new feature called Creative Cloud Market. It’s under the Asset tab. Here, you can download and use some select assets that are royalty free and okay to use. You can display different categories and sort them, from For Placement, to User Interfaces, Vector Shapes, Icons, Patterns, and Brushes. Honestly, it’s not very good. Hopefully there will be more in the future.







Screen Shot 2014-07-10 at 7.11.23 PMAlso new is When I log into Adobe’s primary website, I am greeted with a customized splash page, just for me! I suspect if I am logged out of Creative Cloud this won’t be the case, but this is neat. I can do some account management stuff here, but that’s interesting to me is the Photos link under Assets. If you click on Photos, your shared Lightroom Collections will show up. You can then filter by flags and picks, and sort and change the order of the images, and even play a slide show. These same collections can also be pushed out to the Lightroom app. Unlike the Lightroom app though, you can’t do edits from the browser. There is potential here. I wonder if someday it can be a hosted gallery, or even a customer approval portal type thing. Pretty neat!

Adobe Creative Cloud Cleaner Tool

2013/08/21 Leave a comment

Screen shot 2013-08-21 at 9.55.38 AMHad some problems with licensing and Adobe Technical support told me about the Cloud Cleaner Tool. How come I haven’t heard about this before! Cleans to way back too!

The Adobe Creative Cloud Cleaner Tool helps resolve installation problems for Adobe Creative Cloud, Adobe Creative Suite 6, Adobe Creative Suite 5 – 5.5, Adobe Creative Suite 4, and Adobe Creative Suite 3 software. The tool can also clean up install records for any pre-release (beta) installations of these products.

Update: Verdict. It sorta kinda worked.

Creative Cloud: Typekit for Desktop

2013/08/12 Leave a comment

Typekit for Desktop is avilable for Creative Cloud subscribers! Acivate fonts from the typekit server and have it be ready to use in all your Adobe applications! Yeah!

Now if I can just upload my local fonts and have typekit manage that as well…
