    Colour Perception Test

    Here's a fun colour test to determine: a) What crappy eyesight you have. b) What a crappy monitor you own. I got zero. That's good - the lower your score, the better.

    What's this on my Illustrator Artboard?

    I'm attaching a screen shot from Illustrator 2015, version 19. Somehow I put these things on there. I haven't a clue how, I've no idea what they are or what they're for, but I'd really like to remove them. Upper left looks like a cube of sorts. No idea what the thing is on my artwork. There is...

    Extended receipts

    Here's something that bugs me. Well; a lot of things do. How about extended receipts - from everywhere you go. Bank Machine receipts. I don't know what they say because I tear it off. Grocery store. When did you last go to a grocery store, hardware store that didn't offer you $1000.00 to fill...

    Form Fields in Acrobat

    Hi, Is it possible to show/hide form fields in Acrobat Reader? I made a form for a customer and can highlight the form fields, or not. I've been looking around Acrobat Reader, which I just downloaded and don't see a way to do this. I thought I might be missing something. I'm new to the form...

    a grave error

    Wasn't sure where to post this. Under the 'Education' heading might be more appropriate. I refuse to touch wedding invitations. Or any similar home crafty type project someone may have. However, in a moment of weakness I agreed to help out a regular customer who's daughter is getting married...

    InDesign Text Bar

    Greetings, Yesterday for some reason the text bar (could have a different name) became disorganized from the way I usually view it. For example the 'Paragraph' settings are now on the left, when they previously have been more central. 'Text' section used to be further to the left than it is now...

    Need a database of people/companies that don't pay

    Wouldn't that be nice?! Get a call from a potential new client. Look them up on the database. History of burning suppliers. There would be a lot of room to abuse such a system but it would be nice to know that if someone didn't pay what they owed you could enter their name and basically have...

    InDesign to Illustrator

    Greetings, Does anyone have a magic formula for getting files that were put together in InDesign CS5.5 to Illustrator CS5 and still have them somewhat editable? Scenario: Label printer wants Illustrator files. I don't know why they can't use InDesign files. That would solve everything. Text in...

    Pantone Colour Manager Expired

    Hi Group, I haven't opened Pantone Colour Manager for a month or more. Last time I did all was good. Now I'm getting a message on all the Pantone + swatches (the ones I want & use) that access has expired. I don't understand this at all. The software is up to date and activated. I just don't...

    PDF to Illustrator

    Greetings all, I'm pretty certain I know my answer, but it's been a few years since I visited this problem and maybe newer software versions have brought newer results. I'm still on Acrobat 8 (it works) and Illustrator from CS 5 - version 15 or 16 i think. A label printer wants to convert my...

    Suitcase Fusion 4 & InDesign CS5

    Hi, This is a new version of an old problem. New because I've recently installed Suitcase Version 4. As with Suitcase Fusion version 3, it doesn't recognize all my apps. In this case the Fusion 4 plug-in doesn't recognize InDesign CS5 (version 7.0.4). This is the Adobe app I use the most and...
