comment Export photoshop layers to individual PNG files - batch process?
Just noticed this answer. Wanted to let you know that the script has this functionality built into it (and so much more now).

comment “Multiplying” a white background gives perfect results! how do I save this image?
Unfortunately, there's no way that I know of that this is possible. It's bothered me for years.

comment How to tile a pattern in Illustrator?
If you look at the square you've placed at the center of the group you should be able to see that it would not line up properly once tiled.

comment Maybe icons should represent the action instead of the medium / device?
@nocomprende, I think it's still too much of a discussion rather than a question, therefore I don't think this is the right place for this discussion. You're welcome to go to the chat and talk to others there once you have 20 points.

comment How to make clear the intent of résumé status bars?
Right but what I mean is that they are still arbitrary because they only mean something to you. The way I would quantify what you know is by how you answer my questions in an interview, not off your graph. But I suppose this is very subjective and we just don't agree :)

comment Why are my corners “inside-out” in Illustrator?
Are you able to click on the path and invert the corner by rotating the handle?

comment Changing the colour space of a website - or some other way of getting vibrant colours
Divya Manian, could you please explain a bit more what we'll find behind the link you provide and why it answers the question? That way, your answer is still of value in case the link breaks at a later time. Link rot is the main reason we really dislike link-only answers here. Thanks for your effort and keep contributing!

comment What system do you use to name your logos?
Is 01110011011011010110100101110100011010000010000000110001.pdf descriptive enough though?

comment When and why do I use “s”-shaped quotation marks?
Not seeing this on p. 36 at all :(. Anyways, I think this is an interesting question, but I wonder if it is relevant to GD at all. Even if it could be more universal, it's usage may still be contextual based on language and therefore I'd think this is more appropriate for EL&U.

comment Critique: Scrollable flyout nav menu
Not sure if it's been mentioned, but when I click the sub-menus, and things instantly move around, it's easy to "lose" something. I would encourage just a fast and simple expand/collapse animation so that your eye has something to follow. The abruptness really throws me off.

comment Which format is better for saving images intended for websites; PNG or SVG?
In 2014 this answer should probably be in favor of SVGs instead.

comment How to calculate the area of an irregular shape in Adobe Illustrator?
@Scott I've updated my answer. The script seems to work in CC as well. Not entirely sure on the accuracy as my math skills aren't too hot, but it seems to do the job.

comment How to calculate the area of an irregular shape in Adobe Illustrator?
@Scott, good to know. That was something I wasn't sure about and took for granted. I hope that my answer can still help anyone below CS6 and perhaps some of the other methods mentioned in the thread I linked to provide some sort of answer. Other than that I don't see another way of doing this.

comment What is the difference between “flat style” and “material design”?
@DA01, just want to point out that Microsoft's UI has not been named Metro since 2012. It is instead called "Microsoft design language" source. I realize that OPs question mentioned it by this name as well but that's incorrect.
