    thank you for the tips

  • Jonathan Hällmayer says:

    Finally, something different. Type tips are alway great. Keyboard Shortcuts are even better. I also liked the way you presented them and your “wrap up” at the end. Please, more!

    Is this for CS4? I’m using CS3, and the Cmd is only scaling the text frame, not the point size. Thanks for the tips!

  • A.J. Wood says:

    Marcusdave – This will work with CS3. If you press CMD only it scales the text frame, press CMD+SHIFT to scale the selected text.

    Jonathon & Digital – thank you, I’m glad you liked the tips.

    Sometimes I wish I wasn’t using an azerty-keyboard. So many shortcuts simply don’t work out of the box…
