comment Can I use the Collections Groupings in Font Book within Illustrator?
@bcolmer this is part of the reason why a lot of third party developers, especially font manager developers offer plugins for indesign, illustrator and photoshop: Suitcase Fusion, FontExplorer, TypeDna. There are also some stand-alone extensions.

Place a rectangle behind it and fill that with the dark blue color.

comment Unable to build a shape in an individual layer - CS6
It's still unclear to me what it is that you're trying to achieve. If you could try and explain that a bit more?

comment Unable to build a shape in an individual layer - CS6
All of these shapes are in their own layers. So as far as I can tell, your layers form a big blob of color just because you've used only a single color and nothing to differentiate the rectangles from each other. You can reorder layers by dragging them vertically in the Layers panel on the right, but it's not going to make a difference visually, unless you change the color of each rectangle or something.

comment Hero Banner - Responsive Design
This is what people do... Something looks good or what ever and they want to use it too. This style just became popular and that's pretty much why you see it everywhere. Go ahead... I'm not going to call the police if you want to design something original.

comment What method to use to create opening animation for webpage
@PieBie Edge Animate was my first though, before I saw the example animation. I'm not entirely confident that it would be easy to use EA to animate lines like that (or possible..?), especially if it's not all drawn inside EA. Then again, I haven't used it much.

comment How to paste PNGs keeping the original transparency
@GhostEcho It has been available for quite a long time now and I've heard similar complaints ever since it was released. It's odd that they haven't been able to make it better for chrome. I haven't had a need too use either version, because the good old clipboard copying started working for pngs again like some years ago .

Wind has more to work with, if the edge is blurred.

comment What is the best Adobe program to create a cover for a guideline?
It doesn't matter what application you use, especially when we are talking about: Indesign, Illustrator and Photoshop. Using one over the other does not affect the quality of your design. Only the workflow, efficiency and file size. Perhaps other small things too.

comment How can I force any pixel, regardless of transparency, to be a solid color (so like levels adjustment but with color)
Kind of off topic, but I'll say it anyways. If you write the text and convert the text layer to a smart object, you can extrude it by holding alt and then tapping Up arrow and Right arrow one after the other until you get the desired thickness. This way you can still edit the text after the extrusion is done.

comment Ever use anti-glare glasses for an over bright design department?
I personally have gunnar classes with two of the lense styles that they produce. The ones with the yellow tint and the clear lenses. I used to have a lot of eye fatigue and dryness issues. While I'd remmonend anyone with eye related issues to try them out, I don't see how they would help with bright lights in the room. If anything, they can increase the glare, depending on the lightning. Sun glasses maybe?

comment Interactive template for making printable document
Well you can't do anything with Acrobat then. It's called Acrobat reader because you can only view files. You need beefier versions of Acrobat to be able to edit stuff.

comment How to create angle gradient within a certain angular range?
It's a shape, where Scott applied a layer style. It's not a mask. Well it kind of is, but it's not referred to as a mask..

comment Tool to help measure web page elements
Oh yea. Forgot to say this earlier. I came up with a possible reason for why someone down voted. The screenshot you linked is for div order, not div dimensions. Though that option is visible in the screenshot... Also, to show image dimensions, you need to go to the image tab and similarly enable image dimensions separately.

comment Can someone tell me what type of art style is this?
It kind of depends on the situation, but I'm guessing you don't wish to paint with this style. So as far as simple goes, I'd say search for grunge brushes and brush stroke brushes for photoshop. Then use those brushes by just clicking into different parts of the document. You may want to use black and white colors combined with lower opacities and after the texture is done, add layer adjustment: Hue/saturation with the colorize option checked and/or Gradient map. You might want to also flatten, duplicate and change the blend mode in the duplicated layer to something like Overlay.

comment Photoshop how to create a box with curved edges and a background color easily
I wonder what you mean by your last sentence, because you are going to have to use a mouse, if you want this done. It won't magically draw itself. What you should use is the Pen tool

comment How can I prevent photoshop from re-sizing a picture when I drag and drop it from another window?
Without seeing the image files, I'd guess that they just are different size than you think or maybe the destination document is different size. There is no situation where image gets upsized like this. There is a default setting in photoshop that fits over sized images proportionally, when you place them to a document.

Why do you need to get all the measurements?
