An independent graphic designer and instructor in InDesign, Photoshop and Dreamweaver after tiring of working for other people. I'm also a software tester for various companies and "Tier 0" tech support for friends, family, various associates and lots of clients...

comment GIMP - change color of object preserving feathering
Glad to help. I don't use Gimp, so I was extrapolating from the way things work in Photoshop. The Gimp docs aren't entirely clear.

comment How to put a 'gap' between pages in a spread in Indesign
Not multiple documents, just multiple windows. "New Window" opens the same document in an additional window (very handy when you want to have a zoomed-in view for detail work while still being able to see the "grand overview" -- I use it a lot in Photoshop, occasionally in InDesign).

comment Why Illustrator CS5 Expand breaks my shape?
"This bug is a problem to me. If I report it, someone can fix it. But I will not report it, because I am having a tantrum and want others to suffer as I have suffered, so that they will know the pain I feel." Dramatic, but not very useful.

And I answered it. Not a very satisfactory one, perhaps, but maybe better than nothing.

Yeah, THAT would make sense, wouldn't it? Never makes sense to me, but there it is.

LOL! It still ALWAYS gives me a slight moment of confusion, every time I use it. I'd call it counter-intuitive, myself. I suspect it's one of those points where what makes complete sense to an engineer working with the code completely baffles the user.
