  1. Thank you, GarryP for this beautiful video - very instructive! Thank you Walk! I had for the short term done it with guides and snapped rectangles to the guides and then applied masks, but the method with picture frames is nicer and quicker.
  2. I have done it the blunt way by creating guides. I just wonder if there is a way to do: 1. Select square selection 2. put in 640x640 pixels 3. Copy selection and move it over several times and let them snap to one another This would feel more elegant.
  3. I am creating a website mockup file. For this I have to do the following - is this possible in Publisher? 1. Create 8 tiles 640 x 640 pixels 2. Fill each tile with a photo and be able to adjust the photo. I tried with Frames, but they cannot be adjusted to precise pixel dimensions. I was also not able to adjust the photograph inside once the photo was there it was frozen. Is there a way to do the two steps above? If yes, how? Thanks!
  4. I like Varela - but isn't it a bit cinemascope. It would be interesting to see a font that is a bit slimmer, higher than wide in this same minimalistic design. I'm also looking into Bauhaus design typefaces. I just try to avoid overly "styled" fonts. For reading text, e.g. essays, longer texts like stories and novels, I prefer well balanced serif fonts. By the way, what are your favorite serif fonts? I'm using Georgia a lot, and Garamont, not sure why I don't use Times New Roman at all... an emotional thing?... can't remember getting a blackmail notice set in Times New Roman... which would explain it.
  5. Hind Bold it is. And its lighter variants for the description. Rounded stuff in fonts gives me the Comic Sans Rash.
  6. We have two candidates: Varela rounded and Hind Bold for the "ALEX" There are so many Google fonts that are very similar to one another. So could it be that "Varela Rounded" and "Hind Bold" are the pretty much the same?
  7. Thank you Alfred. Yes, it's from the Alex Perry's site. Did you find it via the "Alex" dress google search?
  8. Thank you, Alex! Also for the font tab tip. I'll add Varela Rounded to my font book.
  9. Hello, I found this beautiful, tech looking font on a website. Do you know what font this could be - or which one is like this: very strong control over the shape, sans-serif, minimalist, not pushy (there are some tech looking fonts that really overdo it) thanks! Any font recommendation that goes into this direction is welcome.
  10. It's particularly difficult to use the color picker to match the outline of text with another color. It never works. Whenever I go to the picker, the outline does not change color wherever the picker goes. I have to guesstimate manually.
  11. The color selection tools in Publisher are nothing short of byzantine. Each tool or panel seems to have its own color tool with their own pickers. These labyrinth of color tools is unintuitive, and it's easy to be in the wrong panel. The best would be to focus all color manipulation including picker into ONE TOOL AND ONE PALETTE. Photoshop is a good example on how to do it. Never had to look around on how to change the color on something. In Publisher, I'm often in the wrong panel. Or, just now, I was trying to change the color of text, and even though it was selected it didn't work. Turned out I had previously used the color tool in the stroke panel and was changing the stroke/outline of the text (and the text actually had NO outline, just plain letters). With a central color tool you'd see all you do, not having to check several panels when, again, something doesn't work. Photoshop's color tools are in one panel, and you always know which is foreground and background and they are easy to reset. That simplicity and intuitive directness I'd wish for Publisher to replace it's color tool labyrinth with.
  12. Great, first defense! This is a complete guide to wrapping, thank you! Bookmarked! (better than the tutorials I saw as it plays around with the shapes)
  13. Your file works perfectly. I can click on the wrapping circle and turn it on, and on the "no wrap" circle and turn it off. Very easy.
  14. Yes, this works. I am a bit unclear about why there are two text wrapping symbols, the left one with the page symbol, the other one with the circle. I have noticed that they do different things, but it's not clear what the difference is. Looks like the left symbol is being used to turn wrapping off (the page symbol), and the right one to turn it on. I don't see the logic in this approach. I would have expected to use the same interface for turning it on and off.
  15. I know what's going on. Every time I turn off text wrap and I close the text wrap interface, it turns itself on again. I turn it off, close the interface. Try to put text there, it is still wrapping. I open up the wrapping interface: wrapping has turned itself on again. It can't be turned off.
  16. I disabled the wrapping via the wrap menu. It is still wrapping.
  17. I have turned off text wrapping in both the text box and the ellipse. The file is too big to share, it's a magazine. But the ellipse is at fault. I moved it away so I could place text where it was. I kept it to see how I could solve the riddle.
  18. I had a text box wrap around an ellipse. I have turned off text wrapping for the ellipse, and I have also disabled the layer with the ellipse. But still, the text is still wrapping around the ellipse - I cannot turn the wrap off. What is the problem here? thanks!
  19. I recommend creating a forum for each software. A person looking to help doesn't have to filter through a jumble of posts that don't concern the software he's good at. And the person looking for answers in one software doesn't have to filter out all the threads that do not concern him. It's basically hiding the important in the unimportant - the jumbling up of all three software comments in one thread is impractical and counterproductive.
  20. I also cannot find the margin settings for text boxes. The letters always go right to the edge. What's the proper way to handle margins in Publisher? thanks!
  21. How do you change the stroke color of a text box? I am trying this: I select the rectangle, click on the stroke color, take the color picker and select the color. Result: not the stroke color changes, but the background of the rectangle. I have accessed the "help" menu, but couldn't find a good description on how the logic of color selection works in Publisher For text boxes: Can I select a background and a stroke color for those? How do I do this? For now I am placing text boxes inside rectangles with selected background colors, but it feels impractical.
  22. Solved: Just when I asked the question I found that by clicking the width button you get the stroke and not the fill. You can't delete threads, so maybe this helps someone else who asked himself the same question.
  23. How do I stroke a circle outline created with the ellipse tool? So far I was only able to fill the whole circle. Is there a way not to fill the circle but to just stroke the outline? thanks!
