Q&A

Q1:Where’s the spell checker?
A1: Sorry, not in this edition. You’ll have to look up the words you don’t know how to spell in the dictionary. However, Photoshop 7 has a spell checker now, so maybe we can look forward to it in the next edition of Elements.
Q2:How can I tell exactly where I’m putting the type?
A2: When you first click the I-beam cursor, the small horizontal line across it indicates the baseline of your type.
Q3:I’ve typed in the text I want and have simplified it. The problem is, I found a typo and when I try to go back and edit the text, I can’t. What can I do?
A3: After you simplify text, it’s converted from an editable text layer to a graphic that can’t be edited by any of the Type tools. Ensure that you have the type you want and that it’s all spelled correctly before you render it. To save your project, you might be able to go back in the Undo History palette to work from a state before you rendered the type.
Q4:What’s the difference between serif and sans serif? I know sans means without, but what’s a serif?
A4: Serifs are the little crosscut marks at the ends of strokes in some styles of letter. Times and Century Schoolbook are examples of serif fonts. The strokes represent chisel marks from the days when letters really were carved in stone.
