There are plugins, XCatalog by Em Software comes to mind, but that isn't an inexpensive solution. However, it does babysit the process. Does InCopy provide any options for you?

You possibly need to work in a higher resolution. If you set up your file to print/view at, say, 72 dpi (standard Internet image resolution), your text is going to be fuzzy for print work. Try working at a much higher resolution. This means your font size will be bigger and you'll view your work at less than 100%, but you'll have crisper edges to your ...

Remove underline option for text. Take new layer create line and cut as per the required height.

No. It is not possible with the underline option. Of course, there's nothing stopping you from drawing your own 1px line and not using the underline option.

I would use the Knockout Group Option. Here is my result: *) Create white rectangle (background) and put it into the separate layer: *) Create a new layer (e.g. text) and draw black rectangle: *) Put your text over the black rectangle (the same layer): *) Set Text Fill and Stroke Colors to None: *) Go to Appearance Panel > Add New Fill: *) ...

I'd prefer appling this effect by creating any grey oval/circular etc shape above the text and setting its transparency to 30% or any other sufficient value. This preserve the text, keep the effect "live", thus you can adjust whenever you want in any way you want, i.e. changing the shape, its place, hue etc.

Here is how I would do it. Expand the black text. Draw your oval shape OVER where you want it to go. Colour it grey. Select all of those items, then go to your pathfinder toolbar and click divide (first icon on the bottom row). After clicking, use the direct selection tool to select the bottom bit of the oval then hit delete. This will leave you with ...

Once you outline text, it is art, not type. You can not reverse the outline processes other than selecting Edit > Undo from the menu (if the file has not been closed and undo is still a possibility).

Might be a limitation of the tool. Worked fine for me though. You could try manually masking it instead: First, make a copy of your text object, put it at the top of the layer (has to be the same layer as the image is in), click the target button for the new text-object and select the container layer (by pressing the name of it not the target button). ...

I replicated the effect decently with layer styles. It might have been done in Illustrator originally and my approach has some antialiasing problems (I guess it's all the grouping) (see the end of this post for a fix) but it should work all right for most situations. My results: Here's my approach step-by-step: 1. Type out your text and apply a small ...

Here's my take using the Bevel and Extrude tool (Effect > 3D > Bevel and Extrude) Sorry for the French text but everything is in the same place so you should be able to figure it out. The best part to this method is that everything stays editable and there aren't too many extra steps. You want your letter to still look flat so put all the rotation ...

Use variables within Illustrator. Variables are designed so that you create a basic layout and designate what text is to be changed with each instance. You then link to an external document containing that list of items to use in the steps, in your case the CSV file. Here's a link to the Adobe Help Files explaining the use of variables within Illustrator: ...

From the menu, choose Object > Transform > Shear or Right Mouse Button/Control-Click (Mac) and choose Transform > Shear. That Should do the trick. You could also go to the Transform Panel in the top right of your screen (Or Window > Transform), like you can see in the following screenshot:

Here is my shot I have used Drop Shadow, Inner Shadow, Bevel and Emboss, Gradient Overlay and Satin Screenshots of used effects Drop Shadow : [ Blend_Mode:multiply,100%,#000000 ] [ Angle:120, Global_Light:No ] [ 4px:0%:1px ] [ Contour:Defaults/CoveDeep ] [Noise: 0% ] Inner Shadow : [ ...

Well, you're on the right track. The key is to use layer styles. Here's my shot: Settings: Add Bevel & Emboss. Choose "Chisel Hard" under technique, play around with the settings and use the "Cove - Deep" preset under Contour. Add a dark grey to bright white linear Gradient Overlay. Angle it and limit it so that it begins with the white in ...

You nearly always have to adjust type manually to fit the particular use. Also note that you rarely want it to literally line up. Rather, you want it to optically line up--meaning it 'looks' right, even if technically it's not exact. For example, you may allow rounded glyphs like a 'O' to extend further out compared to flat glyphs like an 'H'. You also ...

You should adjust it manually if you think it's obvious enough to be noticed. No font or software is perfect. So even though the math says it's already exactly right it can still look a bit wrong. Remember that whoever will be exposed to your design won't know or care if the math is correct or if the font was designed that way, they will judge your work only ...

The font was designed to fit most cases so in most cases, your L would be preceded by another letter and so on. Good designers definitely pay attention to these small details, it really makes your design look more professional even if it is very subtle. If you are in InDesign, you won't be able to kern the first letter of a line so what you can do is simply ...
