For posters to learn from down votes it is useful if the person down-voting leaves a comment explaining why.

comment How to make a selected area with a circular border?
Thanks for this answer. It stikes me as very odd that this common task takes so many steps in Photoshop while it is such a simple option (choosing a solid border and a different colour fill) in other tools like Adobe Fireworks and MS Paint.

comment How can I prepare lots of code to be printed on a long scroll?
John - your Illustrator answer below looks perfect. I'll give that a go and report back. I think I can get around the Illustrator size restrictions by keeping each file separate and letting the printer run them together by not cutting the paper roll between prints.

comment Good color palette, usable for the color blind.
But it seems odd that given how common some forms of colour-blindness are there are not websites that just list convenient palettes. It feels like reinventing the wheel each time.
