Yes! Here is the end result: Step by step: Create some flowed text by using the text tool to first drag a rectangle and then type. Separately, create a rectangle roughly around the text (really, the rectangle can be anywhere) With the rectangle selected, chose "Path" > "Linked Offset". Then grab the small diamond and drag it in to make a ...

sure, just double click on the Blend Option tool and switch to [Specified Steps] and increase the steps the way you don't feel the curves anymore

I think you're really over-thinking this. It is not a stroke. In most cases trying to use a stroke will not yield the straight top/bottom because a stroke will follow the type contours more. It's merely a rounded rectangle behind the type. That's all. The right side may have been manually altered to align with the O at the end of the first line, but other ...

This Logo was probably inspired by Cipher font. They added a lachrymal ear (in yellow) to the 'g' in the logotype much like Georgia or Baskerville.

For me, I'd use hanging punctuation. Essentially you ignore the quotes and align to text. The punctuation (quote mark) hangs outside the column edge. This is very common in typesetting and dates back to the Gutenberg bible. Overall hanging punctuation helps the alignment of text appear more solid or uniform.

To create text with a tight stroke like that in Illustrator, I would first create the top text, what you see in colour with no stroke. I would then duplicate that layer, and lock the top layer. On the bottom layer, select the text, turn it into outlines (command-shift-o) and give it a stroke of your desired thickness and colour. The fill doesn't really ...

Adjusting the overall space between letters is actually called Tracking! :) Hopefully this will help you find your answer if you ask elsewhere. Pulled from: http://www.inkscapeforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=2216 While in Text tool select all of the text (Ctrl + a) and then Alt + >.

If your text is point text, or individual text objects, just use the Distribute Spacing options on the Align Panel You may need to choose Show Options from the Align Panel Menu to see the distribute spacing items.

I would cheat and put the text into a table. ID tables are surprisingly useful for certain kinds of layouts where you need to force things to align.

Apply a 3D Extrude to your text with options like the following: The 1° rotation along the X axis should be insignificant enough that there will not be any noticeable distortion on the text. You'll end up with something like this: You can then use Object > Expand Appearance to allow you to manipulate the shapes to recolor, combine shapes, or whatever ...

On both frames, you will use the Text Frame Options dialog (Object > Text Frame Options... and its Auto-Size tab. For the quotes frame, set Auto-Sizing to Height Only and choose the top center anchor in the proxy. This will cause the frame to auto-size only in a downward direction. For the body frame, do the same but choose the bottom anchor in the ...

set your type duplicate it (so there's no a copy on top) on this new copy, set the stroke to whatever you want move this duplicated copy with stroke to the back done Optional: As vincent points out, you may need to tweak the outline to remove gaps such as where the dash would be. To do that: with your black-stroked text still selected, STROKE TO PATH ...

Click in the text box with the Type tool (T) to make your text cursor blink. Then click & drag from the box's bottom right corner to resize it.

When you have a text box, you need to double click on the text layer before you can resize the text box, other wise you will stretch the text.

I am not entirely sure that I unterstood correctly what you want to do, but I suggest the following: Create one sample tile with every text aligned as you wish using the corresponding text alignment. I.e., your letter is not only centred optically but also the text-alignment is centred. Your number should be probably right-aligned. Replace the letter with ...

One thing you can try to make the text selectable would be processing the PDF with OCR in Acrobat. Assuming that text is at a decent resolution, there should be almost no errors.

I am able to create PDFs from both PS and IL which have text which is editable in Acrobat, so physically the capability exists. The vendor may be choosing not to give you editable files (or argue that they have to charge you 3X rate for them) because they feel it would allow you to alter and/or recreate them, allowing you to cut them out of the process and ...

I don't know Arabic but I don't see why it wouldn't be acceptable. it is just read from right to left but you can still center-align it. example:

If you are looking just for a 3D effect you can use Mark Dotto's technique! but in general you can find various effects just Googling "CSS Text Shadow effects". Some of the good ones on Design Shack! This is just for a quick use, but Alan's Answer is probably what you're looking for in terms of learning what and why some values are a good shadow.
