comment changing a web browsers default scroll bar advice
@Alin - You mess with my scrollbar - appearance or behaviour - or any other standard browser chrome, you get a back button. One simply doesn't screw up anything that's tied to accessibility.

comment Pixellated Text on Magazine psd Mockup
So what you're asking is why the stuff that's about the same size as a pixel, but that isn't lined up with the pixels, isn't sharp?

comment Is there any way to identify clipping masks using JavaScript? PS CS5
I don't know about this specifically, but it's not unusual in a hierarchy for parent items to know virtually nothing about their children; all of the relationship info belongs to the child items.

comment Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga compatible wacom-pen
The pen tip should look plastic unless you specifically bought the optional felt nib or the inking pen. And the eraser isn't necessarily a pen feature; not all tablets/digitizers support the eraser feature.

comment How to Force HP LaserJet Color M475 Printer to Print at Lower Than 600 DPI
It's likely a PPI/DPI confusion issue, as usual. At 600 PPI (pixels per inch), there wouldn't be enough colour information in the resulting pixels since the printer is only a 600 DPI (dots per inch; dots are not pixels) printer.

comment How did Jony Ive draw the curved lines along the edge of this pen so evenly spaced together?
In addition to, say, using a compass with carefully-measured radii, there were also roller sleeves you could use on a mechanical pencil or Rapidograph-style pen that would let you get even offsets from French curves and other stencilly thingamabobs. And for the writing-impaired, there were lettering tools like the Rotring controlled lettering kit - a pain in the butt to use, admittedly, but easier than the half-stencils where you needed to fill in the inevitable blanks.

comment Reduce handmade graphics for sharper look?
As a general guide, "half up" (150% of the final size) used to be a sort of industry standard back before computers took over. I'm pretty sure you can still get rulers scaled in "half up" and "third off" (the inverse, so you can tell what size something that already exists will print at).

comment Do 3d Programs calculate perspective?
@joojaa - No, mathematically-based realism is covered here in the second paragraph as well (and it's where my life in 3D starts and ends; I much prefer doing "ad hoc" in 2D media).

comment Saving as PDF in 300 dpi changes the resolution (PHOTOSHOP)
It couldn't be that "100%" when viewing a PDF isn't a 1:1 pixel view, could it? 100% in the PDF viewer means that a point is a screen point (that is, type will appear to be the right size on screen). It's not the same as 100% in Photoshop.

comment Getting a triangular tear effect in Gimp?
The technical term for that effect is indenture, but that isn't going to make searching easy, I'm afraid. (The first eleventy thousand results pages will be about semi-voluntary enslavement contracts, a surprisingly large number of which concern gimps.) You might have better luck with pinking (as in pinking shears, used to prevent fraying on cut fabric edges); several search results looked promising, but I don't know whether or not they'd meet your needs.

comment What is the proper term for printed book sides?
The gilt edges here are also goffered. (Likely from gaufré; loosely "waffled", though the waffle is named for the pattern, not the other way around.)
