comment Distribute objects along a path in Illustrator
Also, instead of "spacing" the characters or modifying their tracking, it's much easier to use "full justification" granted "start" and "end" markers are on both ends of path.

In fact that would be brain dead easy to do in InDesign, where one can put any graphics as a "glyph" using "text on path"…

@MatthewRead: I'd rather say "luminance".

@e100: I'd guess your screen is either extra dimmed (I'd say about 60-70 cd/m²) or light on your desk quite bright, or both :). Anyhow, I'd definitely agree that pupils will have little to do in that case if moving back and forth between printed and displayed text.

comment Is the sharpness at 100% zoom sharp enough for Illustrator printing?
It depends on printing method and your image resolution (see horatio's answer). A rule of thumb for offset printing is resolution 300 dpi, though in some cases even 200 or less looks properly, but 300 dpi is safe. If it's sharp in 100% zoom in Ps, it's set to about 300 dpi and it looks good to you, then it should be ok.

comment How do I zoom in Illustrator CS5 using Bamboo touch ring
No, you couldn't missed that option on 3 elements list :(. I think it's a good time to contact Wacom support. Maybe suggest them implementing this for this Bamboo model (such functionality is in e.g. Intuoses)? I can't think of a reason why the coudn't do that.

comment Gradient filter
I'm afraid that's the way for now :(. But… every draw back is also an opportunity for improvements. Maybe some great, new interface or workflow will emerge out of this? I encourage you to think how one could solve this problem and let devs know about it (e.g. on mailing list).

Yup! "Association game" would be my choice too :). Thanks for clarification!

Is it a "one time" icon, or should it match other in a series?

comment Which graphic tablets support tilt?
I understand very well importance of the price :) – I'm on a tight budget :). I only want to suggest you to consider another requirement for your purchase. Pen rotation can save you a lot of trouble if you do a digital painting.
