I always prefer a very dark grey to pure #000. The choice might look personal, but here's the theory behind it: There are very little 100% black things in nature. All black objects you see have some for of light reflected on them, shadows are never completely black. When you #000 in a design, it overpowers the other colors. It attracts too much ...

These are all interesting answers, but a tad esoteric. The reason is rather simple. Contrast is good for readability, but too much can be considered unnecessary at best, and detrimental at worst. Nearly all printed text is black on white paper...but rarely is it pure white paper. It's often an off-white. And even then, because it's printed, it's using ...

Normally I wouldn't post in a question that has been answered as succinctly as this one, but I do think there is a bit of information to add here. Coming from a graphic design background, there is also the concept of "warm" and "cool" grays. These are grays that have a higher presence of warm or cool colours in their mix respectively. #111, #222, #333 - ...

I've never seen a specific Chapter marker. It may be because commonly intra-chapter references are mainly to clarify the text inside a single chapter only, and each chapter may be supposed to stand on its own. Techniques range from highly abbreviated to highly wordy, e.g. Ch.1 Chap. 1 Chapter 1 See "Basic Introduction to Writing Long Texts" ...

People subconsciously perceive details they do not consciously notice. A very slight sheen of a certain colour is perceived and can reinforce a colour scheme and thus a 'feel', a message or a mood. You could ask the same question for why some papers are off-white, or for the use of different 'rich blacks' in print, and my answer would be similar.

If you need to change the text contents, you can highlight the text layers in the Layers Panel then click Edit -> Find and Replace Text to change the text content for all of them at once. If you only need to change text properties, you can highlight all text layers by holding the Shift key then click. Then do the property changes that you need to do.

When you're asking Firefox or any other browser to scale a page they render the text and other content at larger or smaller sizes. This is like you choosing a larger or smaller font size for your text in a word processor. The quality of the text is largely the same whatever the font size chosen. When you scale an image in the Gimp (or any other bitmap ...

Create a text box (click and drag) with the type tool. The text will still be on one line when you paste into the text box but you will have more control over the width of the paragraph text box. Do note that Photoshop is not intended to be a layout program like InDesign.

A possible solution is to save for Word from Adobe Acrobat, then edit in Word again. Whether or not this is a viable solution depends upon the document itself. In general, detailed edits to PDFs are never an easy thing and it often requires reformatting in some other application and then subsequently re-exporting to PDF. Touch-up is one thing, actually ...

It sounds like a near by object has a text wrap (even another text box). Click near by objects and check your Text Wrap window. Turn it off if you don't need it.

Lock the text box/frame (Ctrl+L), then go to preferences (Ctrl+K) and UNCHECK 'Prevent Selection of Locked Objects'. This actually means Selecet (& Editing), so the position is locked and editing is not.

You can not move position of the underline vertically if using the underline feature for text. Your best bet is to manually underline the text by drawing your own path if you aren't happy with the automatic underline.
