Thanks for the links! A few are dead - you might wish to clean them up.

comment Turning off slices in Photoshop's “Save for Web & Devices” without deleting them
This is NOT the same thing as saving for web. The JPEG algorithm is different, for one thing. You have better optimization (smaller file size for similar quality) using Save For Web.

comment Adjust Brush Opacity drag hotkey/shortcut?
Thanks for your comments. I'll leave this question open in case anyone has any other thoughts. I wonder whether any scripting exists that addresses this? though I doubt that's part of the API, but one can always hope..

comment Is there a way to copy layers from one Photoshop document to another?
Sorry Tracey, but that's actually a pretty bad practice. If you have to Rasterize a layer so that you can copy it, that means that you're destroying whatever resolution-independent vector information there was in that layer. You should really try some of the other methods listed above so you get the benefit of preserving your information. I'm sure your technique "works for you" but why not try a new (and hopefully better) way of doing things?

comment How to repair InDesign document that categorically crashes the Application
Thanks Alan. Unfortunately, as I mention in my original question: "The document opens, and then, the app locks up." I probably wasn't clear enough. The point is that the application crashes immediately after the file loads. There is no time to save as an IDML or do anything else. Your tip about Tom Donovan might be helpful. Thanks for the response!

comment How to get dashed line in Photoshop?
This is a good option IF your lines are vertical or horizontal. For curves or angled lines, this simply won't work the way the OP wants it to.

comment How do I move a layer 1px Down and 1px Right?
Yeah, do make sure you're at 100% zoom. Photoshop's nudge increments are based on MONITOR PIXELS at increments < 100%, so you might actually be nudging it 2px at a time if you're at, say, 50% zoom.

comment Cut a complex path at an intersection in Illustrator
Actually, provided you have smart guides turned on, you CAN use the first option, because when you drag the point back into place, the intersections is still there, so it will snap precisely into position.

Thanks Matt. It's great to hear from an "official" source.

comment How good is the fonts.com webfont solution compared to the current @font-face standard?
fonts.com claims there's a JS-free version. I suppose it's nothing more than the CSS embed, pointing to the files on their servers rather than on our local server as I'm used to, right?
