It depends on the given subject matter. Different sections of text used in one banner seems clumsy. No matter which text is used and the thing is text character describe the information. And the best way to represent the texts in one banner is playing with them in clever manner, perhaps by changing the Size of main text with their relative text character ...

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 ...

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 ...

I do hours and hours of editing and translating in front of a computer all day, and my experience is that for such text-heavy work, light text on a dark background (for me, either white or a very light green on a black background) leaves me less fatigued, noticing far less strain on the eyes. Doing such intensive, long editing and translating with dark text ...

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; ...

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 ...

Typefaces need to be formatted to tell the programs using them which font in the set is Regular, or which is Bold, or which is Italic, or which is Bold + Italic. Not all typefaces are formatted this way. If the font you are using in InDesign does not allow the shortcut, it usually means that the typeface has not "told" InDesign which font in the typeface ...

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.

Place the background PDF. Then place the text PDF on top of the background PDF. With the text PDF selected, set the blending mode on the Effects Panel (Window > Effects) to Multiply.

In Adobe Indesign, we usually put the omitting backgrounds in Master Pages or A-Master, it's on the top right placed inside "Pages" tab (if your using the default Essentials workspace). See the youtube link below to understand using the Master Pages. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rsl4-J-h8jc Go and explore! :) -Sai

To answer your question, yes, you can manipulate an image using brightness alone to have overlaid text legible. If your text is white, you'll want to lower the brightness and if it is black, increase the brightness. Saturation will increase/decrease the amount of color in the image and hue will change the overall make-up of color in the image. So you may ...

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 ...

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.

You may also want to keep that blank space transparent. To achieve that just change the Fill of your text layer to 0% And this is the result.

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 ...

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 ...

To set the text area box to specific dimensions without distorting the text do this: In the main menu (on top), choose Type and then Area Type Options. A window will appear with options to set text box width and height, there are other useful options too.

I use Text Editor, copy the original contents, cut it again and paste it to InDesign. Also, in CS6, you can see a popup while pasting content. You can work around the settings there as well.

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

There are several reasons why this could be so • To create atmosphere by looking more natural to the eye • To be consistent with brand colours, perhaps this shade of black is used elsewhere across the design • To look closer to print (slightly paler blacks are more reminiscent of the way black looks on a printed page) • A mistake, the creator intended to ...

I don't think it is possible in a paragraph text nither artistic text. If I had limited number of paragraphs I would take my chances inserting a tab. If the paragraph uses a period at the end, I would use a decimal tab.

Text frames are not actual objects within a Photoshop file. You can't style them and they don't do anything other than set the area for text to be placed. If the area is smaller than its contained text, the text becomes hidden and little red [+] is shown. If you want to hide part of a character, you need to do it in other ways, such as a mask on the text ...
