How do I create a text style in CC libraries? Every time I drag and drop text into library form Photoshop or illustrator it turns it into a graphic.
If I select the text layer and click the text style button in the library it just creates a new text style for Myriad Pro 12pt - I'm not using that anywhere in my document.
Can anyone help? Seems like a bug to me as I'm trying what the video tutorials are saying.
Thanks

I realize AI is an illustration program.
Do you realize it is an object-based vector-based program? Do you know the difference between raster-based and vector-based content?
My question seems to be all over the forum but no one has been able to answer other than exporting to these file formats, which make text look awful and of no use....
And yet everyone else in the world makes proper web images every day using a plethora of programs, including these...go figure.
Am I missing something?
Yep. Pretty much.
Hello Adobe! People use transparency on website logos.
Hello, cocteau! What you're calling "transparency" is inherent to object-based vector artwork. But web browsers don't support object-based vector artwork, except via file formats like Flash and SVG, or by viewing as a PDF in a plug-in version of Reader. Raster imaging in general only supports "transparency" by either indexing a specific color (i.e.; "don't display this color", as in GIF) or including an alpha channel (i.e.; "blend all the pixels with existing pixels, based on values from this extra channel", as in PNG). It's all in the raster file format you use, cocteau; it has little-to-nothing to do specifically with Adobe software. Such things are among the most basic matters understood by someone doing web design.
When I export an eps from .ai file, and open the eps in photoshop,...I save as a gif for the web, it goes back to the original problem...creates jagged text. I"m giving up on this garbage...Thanks a lot adobe! Lower the price of this software if this is all that can be done.
Once it leaves Photoshop (or Illustrator, or whatever) as a non-proprietary raster image format, it's all about what the format can do re "transparency". You can do this stuff with most any graphics program. You should read about basic web design and the differences between raster and vector content, rather than rant.

  • Drag and Drop Text in FrameMaker 10

    I just installed TCS 3 with Frame 10.  Prior to this release I could triple-click a paragraph and select the following (or previous) paragraphs by dragging the mouse.  Now in Frame 10 after I triple-click, Frame thinks that I want to drag and drop text rather than simply selecting text.  It only selects the one word on which the mouse cursor rests and insists on prompting me to drag the text somewhere.  If I triple-click and release the mouse button, then the whole para is selected, but I cannot select any more text because I have already released the mouse.
    How do I turn off the drag and drop text feature?  I'm finding this "enhancement" frustrating at best.

    AFAIK, the drag'n drop facility is hardwired into the code, so you can't change the behaviour. However, if you've made a paragraph selection using a triple-click, you can select additiona paragraphs by holding down the shift key and single-clicking at the point that you wish your selection to extend to.

    It can be fairly involved once you realize how many aspects need to be dealt with.  You'll need to find a tutorial that teaches you how to use drag and drop involving targets so that when you drop something you check if it hit a valid target (textfield in your case) and then process your text into that target.  You should try searching Google using terms like "AS3 drag drop tutorial" and "AS3 dropTarget tutorial"   Here's a link from the latter of the two that has links to tutorials that might help.

  • Drag and drop text to Pages doc without formatting

    Pages '06 allowed me to 'drag and drop' text from another application into a cell in a Pages table, without disturbing cell formatting. i.e. the text would lose all its own styles, and take on those set for the cell. This is just the same as using the Edit item 'Paste and Match Style', but avoids several intermediate steps. This doesn't work in Pages '08, so my question is:
    Is there a modifier key or some other way of setting Pages '08 to work the old way?
    I would also like to do the same thing into main body text, but even Pages '06 wouldn't do that -- not for me, anyway. Any suggestions would be gratefully received.

    What you can do is right-click on your selected text, choose "Copy" from the contextual menu, then go to the app where you want to paste the text and right-click again, choosing "Paste and Match Style" from that contextual menu.......no keyboarding involved, no modifier keys.

  • Upgraded to Adabe 10.1x reader and drag and drop text problems

    I cannot drag and drop text from my saved PDF files to word files or for example, into online forms since upgrading to Adobe new reader version today. How can this problem be resolved?

    So after a month of trying to figure all this out I FINALLY fixed the problem!
    Before you do anything just go to your destop > right click personalize (this is for windows 7 - might be different for XP; I honestly forgot, but same idea) > find "window color" > select "advance appearance settings
    (I think can be found by just typing "window color and appearance" in the search from the start menu).
    Finally select "active title bar" (If the font is SEGOE UI, then following the link is the best thing to do; IF ITS NOT, I would think you can just follow the same steps and modify accordingly to how you want your fonts to look in iTunes). http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-desktop/how-to-change -system-default-font-in-all-parts/dfce15db-7337-420a-a42e-517521a8502e

    i have a seagate 1tb hard drive and a 16gb memory stick, how do i transfer avi files from one to another as the click drag and drop wont work, please help?

    Greetings,
    What happens when you drag it?
    Make sure the drive you are moving the files to has enough available space to receive the file:
    Click on the movie file and go to File >  Get Info and note the "size"
    Check the drive to which you are moving the file to make sure it has enough available space: https://idisk.me.com/madisonfile-Public/web/finder-drive-available-space-and-for mat.html
    Also note the format of the drive you are copying too.  If it is not Mac OS Extended or FAT (not recommended unless you are taking it to a windows computer) then that may be the issue.
    Hope that helps.

  • How can i let a move clip complete his motion tween movement after dragging and dropping it

    hi how can i let a move clip complete his motion tween movement after dragging and dropping it
    i am using this code and there is a motion tween applies to the movie clip r_mc
    r_mc.addEventListener(MouseEvent.MOUSE_DOWN,fun); r_mc.addEventListener(MouseEvent.MOUSE_UP,fun2); function fun(event:MouseEvent):void { stop(); r_mc.startDrag();
    function fun2(event:MouseEvent):void {
    play(); r_mc.stopDrag();

    i have a simple .fla file wich contains MC that has
    a motion tween(its moving from the left to the right of the stage)
    this motion tween covers the whole time line (  there is only 50 frames in the time line)
    i mean in the frame 1 the MC appears in the left of the stage
    and in the frame 50 the MC appears in the right of the stage and there is a motion tween between them
    every thing till now working well
    i want to make that MC dragabble
    so when i drag the MC i will use stop()
    and when i drop it i will use play()
    but the problem is that the mc doesnt move and complete
    his motion tween movement when i drop it
    for example the MC will be in the middle of the stage in frame 25
    in this frame (25) i am draging the MC ,stoping the timeline,dropping the MC and resum playing the timeline again
    but the MC freezes in the middle of the stage and doesnt go to the right of the stageo until the flash loops and start from the frame 1 again
    here is the example wich i am worikng on

  • How to drag and drop text from one listbox to another

    I have a listbox of options(text) and would like to drag and drop each selection into a new listbox, one at a time. Then programatically highlight the selections in the new listbox as events happen.

    Hello Zoltan,
    I do not believe that kind of option is built into the listboxes, but I was able to have similiar functionalities using property nodes. I have included an example program that I put together.
    The big difference is that instead of dragging, you double click on the item you want to transfer. To highlight items as you go down the list, all you need to do is set the value to that list number.
    Hope this helps you out!

  • Drag and drop text fields

    Hey.  trying to drag and drop a text field.  So I have created a text field, and saved it as a swf.  I then load it in using xml and the loader class.  When I go to pick it up, i get the error
    TypeError: Error #1034: Type Coercion failed: cannot convert flash.text::[email protected] to flash.display.Sprite.
        at GalleryNew_fla::MainTimeline/pickUp()[GalleryNew_fla.MainTimeline::frame1:81]
    It is specifically pointing to
    function pickUp(event:MouseEvent):void {
        getPosition(event.target);
        stage.addChild(event.target as DisplayObject);
        Sprite(event.target).startDrag(true);
    Should I be casting it to something else or something?
    cheers

    I will try and explain what I am doing better, because I am problably doing this tottally wrong, I am just mixing a lot of code to get something together.
    Basically, I have several buttons.  If a button is pressed, it displays objects in a sort of holder.  These objects might be images, animations etc.  When these are placed in the holder, they can be dragged and dropped.  If they are not dropped in the right location, they go back to their position in the holder.
    So, my first two buttons work great.  These just deal with images.  button5, which I am working on now, is dealing with textfields.  So, it should load my textfield swfs, place them in the holder, and made to be drop and draggable.  Problem is, I am using the code which i used for the images, which is where I might be going wrong.
    If I show you the code, maybe you could suggest a better way to do things
    Cheers

  • How can I attach an additional action to the "reset" button in the drag and drop interaction?

    Hello,
    I would like to know how to attach an additional behavior to the "reset" button in my drag and drop exercise.
    Here is the background:
    In my drag and drop exercise, when the user drops the source on a target of his choice, certain elements appear and certain elements disappear
    This means that depending on where he dropped the sources, certain elements will be visible and certain elements invisible when he is finished the activity
    Because the sources are not re-draggable once he drops them, he will have the option to reset the exercise and start again from the beginning using the reset button
    My challenge:
    I would like exercise to return to its original state when the user selects the rest button .  this means:
    the dragged objects return to their orginal starting location (this is what naturally occurs when you hit the reset button)
    any objects that had disappeared during the course of the activity reappear
    objects that were not visible in the beginning , but had appeared during the course of the activity, again become invisible
    So how can I add this action to the reset button?

    Allowing the user to redrag the souce after it has been dropped would work for my particular problem  if I could bind an action to the event redragging, namely making the elements reappear that had disappeared and the elements disappear that had appeared when the user dropped it the first time.

  • Strange drag and drop text editing behavior in Mail

    Sometime when selecting text in an email and dragging it to a new part of the document COPIES the selected text to the new location rather than MOVES the original text.
    Is this a bug or is there a trick to drag and drop in Mail?

    Is this a bug or is there a trick to drag and drop in Mail?
    No bug, no trick. You simply have to be careful so that you get it right. Select the text you want to move, then click and hold (pause slightly), and drag & drop to the new position. Simple, and it works every time if you do it rights.

  • How to drag and drop from shared library to iphone/ipad?

    Since our Mac Pro has more storage, that's where I keep our iTunes videos, to avoid taking up space on my wife's laptop. Sharing the libraries works ok, except for one issue.
    When my wife wants to put movies onto her iPhone or iPad, iTunes won't let her drag and drop them directly from the shared library. She can copy them just fine to her local library and from there to the devices, but that is cumbersome and takes up disk space.
    Please don't tell me it isn't possible because we did have it working for some time, I just don't know what's changed. The devices are set to "manually manage", drag and drop works locally, just not from the share.
    Thanks!

    Take a look at this tutorial: [url http://java.sun.com/docs/books/tutorial/uiswing/misc/dnd.html]How to Use Drag and Drop and Data Transfer.
    If you read it carefully and study the samples, I think you should get rid of your first question.
    Concerning the second question, you can overwrite the isCellEditable(int row, int column) method to return false. This will block any editing from the table.
    Hope this helped,

  • Drag and drop text from another application

    There used to be a really nice feature of Mail that has disappeared. I was able to select text in another application, e.g., Pages or Word or Safari, and drop it onto the Mail icon in the dock. A new message window would open with that text in the body of the message. I can still do this with images from Safari but that seems to be about it. I cannot do this with text. Has there been a change in Mail that causes this changed behavior? Is the problem in my system or Mail.app? Or is it simply my memory (the neuro part not the silicon)? Any help would be appreciated (unless the last possibility explains the problem; then I'd like to hear about it, but I wouldn't appreciate it).

    I was able to copy the text of your message and drag
    it to Mail to create a new message. Mail was open
    already. I closed Mail and tried it again, and it
    didn't work.

    Jim, I forgot to mention that I encounter the problem whether Mail is open or closed. Also, I trashed the preferences file and created a new account with no effect. It still works with images and doesn't work with text. Strange. Jim

  • While dragging and dropping text on Mail sometimes is copied instead of moved

    When composing a message under Mail it happens that a word needs to be cut from a place and paste somewhere else in the body. Instead of cutting&pasting most text editors allow the user to drag the selected word (or consecutive words) and drop them as desired. Well, why on earth Mail sometimes actually moves the selected words while sometimes it copies words?
    I reported this bug already under Mountain Lion, but it hasn't been fixed yet. Text Edit, built in as well as Mail, works properly.

    Press the Option key to force a copy, or the Command key to force a move. Pressing both at once will create an alias.
