Ok, so it's not an exact solution, but it's definitely easier than drawing in the lines on a font that doesn't already have them. Start with your text Change the color of the text to white (or whatever your design's background color is) and then add an Inner Stroke of the color that you wish the font to be. And there you have it You can also ...

All versions of Windows come with the Character Map utility with which you can browse the available glyphs of any installed font. Enabling Advanced View will allow you to filter your results by Character Set or Group; a search function is available as well. This is hardly what I would consider "programatically", but you'll still be able to search for a glyph ...

Select your text then Create Outline (shortcut: Shift + Cmd/Ctrl + O) Select the text and the bag then Make Compound Path (shortcut: Cmd/Ctrl + 8) Edit Based on your comment it should be working, if you got step 1 to work, so the issue would have to be in your bag's construction. Here's how a very quick mock up looks: Here's the text after performing ...

One type family won't kill your design Hierarchy can be communicated via numerous devices: Size, weight, color, position, and surrounding elements all contribute to perceived hierarchy. A change in typeface just says "something changed" — it doesn't necessarily establish order. In this sample the head and subhead are the same size (if you don't ...

You can use this short little snippet of a script: #target illustrator function ChangeTextContents(){ if(app.documents.length > 0 && app.documents[0].selection != null){ var newText = prompt("Enter new text:", ""); if(newText != null){ var sel = app.activeDocument.selection; for(var i=0; ...

Not really. It's best to actually purchase a font with the weights you wish to use. That being posted, you could just apply a stroke layer style to a text layer I suppose. Of course, this may slightly round the corners of some characters.

You can dynamically load text into Illustrator using an XML file. Using the Variables panel, you can import an XML file and use that to control the existence of objects, what images appear in linked image containers, and what text appears in a text frame. You can also control the data that appears in a graph. The typical workflow is to create a ...

we could put the Search box to good use and skip the text editor. Copy your text as usual Ctrl+V to paste here and get rid of formatting Ctrl+A to select it Ctrl+C to copy it again Paste as usual [edit] or better yet, for multi-line copy/pasting open the Attributes Panel in the flyout menu click on Show Note paste it there Ctrl+A to reselect ...

There is no general answer for this but typically bold, capitalization or even all caps, and a color change would be a good starting point. We've worked hard to ensure Delightful Apple Cake is the best pre-packaged apple cake available. Capitalization alone makes it more apparent We've worked hard to ensure Delightful Apple Cake is the best ...

Overall I find remaining consistent with typefaces helpful, but vary the faces. Use different faces (bold, italic, black, etc.) to create visual separation in conjunction with size. First I'd determine what the imperative information is. If there are several of these banners, all focusing on the same talk but varying in date and topic, then the topic and ...

You can use the Direct Selection Tool (white arrow) to select the paths of the clipping mask and add a stroke to them. Do not use the Selection Tool (black arrow). I'd just use a gradient with middle stops as an extra fill on text objects, allowing the text to remain "live" and editable. This is easiest with single lines of text, but the gradient can ...

Here is a little script that does, what you want to do: #target InDesign if(!(app.selection.length == 1 && app.selection[0] instanceof TextFrame && app.selection[0].overflows)){ alert("Error\rSelect exactly one text frame with overset text and try again."); exit(); }; var tf = app.selection[0]; var increment = 1; var ...

Object → Text Frame Options → Auto-Size (tab) → Auto-Sizing = Height Only (or both) This solves your issue. If you want hide a part of the text, just put it into a frame (Paste Into). This frame became a mask for a text box. You can setup such behavior for any new text box as default. This can be done from 'Objects Styles' panel.

Looks like it's not possible. The only way I could see it is you overlap your textbox above your frame to get the same effect.

Depending on whether you want different-sized images to fit different-sized boxes or if all the images and image boxes are the same size, things could change a lot in this type of workflow. Pasting ±135 images into InDesign doesn't seem like a lot of work, though (imagine making a 200 page catalog with 10 products per page). So, it's actually very quick to ...
