The answer is that they have outlined your font. It is now just as much a vector graphic as any other vector object, like an illustration of a plane or a tree. This was achieved using the " Type > Create Outline " or " Shift+Ctrl+O ". The simple answer to your question of what you can do at this point is nothing. There is no easy or even hard way to ...

As Scott said, there are a few ways of doing it. A simple way is to use the pen tool and draw the line in the way you want it. Then use the text tool and hover over the line you just made and the icon will change. If you click the line, you can then type and it will follow the curve.

Generally, creating art/typography with characters online is called ASCII art. I did a brief search, and found this ASCII generator. Hopefully that'll help you make what you need.

what part are you having trouble with in the tutorial? Well the tool does as it describes, If you use the Envelope Distort tool then well it will distort the text based on how you move the anchor points. Another way to shape your text is to use Effect -> Warp -> (Choose your effect). Maybe Arc will work if you want to bend the text.

What you are looking for is contrast In order to measure contrast there are a lot of ways, I personally use this website. It grades the contrast between colors, and I personally found that grade 5 and above is a pretty good contrast for type and its background

In the "Text Frame Options" dialog box you can adjust the "Inset Spacing" for a text box. In InDesign CC 2014 on Mac you can find this dialog box by going to Object > Text Frame Options or using the shortcut command+b.

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 ...

Your text within the layer is being rendered as 'point text'. You need to make the text 'paragraph text'. Select and activate the layer that contains your text from the layers palette. With the layer active, goto Type > Convert to Paragraph text. You should now be able to click into the text and see a bounding box that can be resized without resizing or ...

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.

try this: in Illustrator with nothing selected select SimSun as the font. This will update the default font to SimSun. copy the text out of Word and paste it into Illustrator. PS this also works for fill/stroke settings - the "default" is updated if you change the settings in the toolbar with nothing selected.

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.

Ok, you have a background right! If the color of the background is light, then use a dark color for a better look and if the background is dark using a black will not show up at all and will look really bad or not be visible to the human eye. It's called rgba "Red Green Blue Alpha." I hope this explains this a little more. Also, try to never use a ...

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 - ...

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.

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 ...

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.

I assume you made the text in Photoshop and imported it in Illustrator? If so you'll have to go back to your Photoshop file, select the text and adjust the tracking for the last line in the character panel.

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" ...

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.

Photoshop is not the best tool for laying out text. InDesign is much better suited for this task, and it can easily accomplish that. There's two solutions in Photoshop, neither will be answer that you're looking for. Solution 1 This is more of a hack than a solution. Set the line-height to be very high so it will be vertically centered, and add a line ...
