How do I turn off the alt scroll zoom? 
When I'm in Adobe photoshop and illustrator using the pen tool, alt is utilized for another short cut.  I would like to use the alt command for the pen tool instead of zooming into the screen.

I tend to select things from left to right and every time I am moving in a downward right diagonal motion during lasso selection I am missing a clear view and I am tending to have a more sloppy selection.  All this does is slow me down since I need to go back and hit those areas again.  The big arrowhead just get's in the way.  The original lasso tool with the thin line and small active point at it's lower left was far better for me.
I don't like turning the cursors to precise because I like to see the active tool icon where my cursor is and as the icon changes as I hold modifier keys down.  If I am forced to get comfortable with using pricise cursors I guess I will, but man, I've never had to do this in my 15 years of photoshop use...
I would absolutely LOVE to find a way to get the old lasso icon -- without the arrowhead above it.
Is there any chance this option could be inlcuded in cursor preferences?  I'd give much thanks, Adobe.

  • How do I turn off background ni file activity when not using Labview? files such as nimxs.exe, nipalsm.exe, nipalsm.exe, nisvcloc.exe, nicitdl5.exe

    How do I turn off background ni file activity when not using Labview? I use labview rarely, and I also use my computer for demanding multimedia applications, including multitrack digital audio recording. I need to reduce as much background activity as possible, and taking a look with task manager I see files such as nimxs.exe, nipalsm.exe, nipalsm.exe, nisvcloc.exe, and nicitdl5.exe running even when I haven't used Labview (8 I believe). These files run even after I right click the NI icon on the lower right and turn off the application. I would like the computer to boot up without these files, and for the necessary files to be activated only when I start the program.
    Can this be done or do I have to remove labview from the system to improve performance?
    Thanks

    Hello, those processes are part of running NI services that start when Windows boots.  These processes serve varied purposes and stopping them can have undefined and unknown consiquences for your NI products.  These products run at "normal" priority meaning that they should be preempted by any process running at a higher priority which I would expect your other application to be doing given their time sensitivity.  That being said, in Windows XP (I can't speak for other OSes), you can lower their priorities even greater through task manager (right click the process»set priority) to further remove them from contention for resources.  If you want to prevent them from running you can set the service startup type to "manual" in Control Panel»Administrative Tools»Services.  Right click the process go to Properties and Under the General tab choose Startup Type»Manual.  This will start up the processes only when something directly starts it up.  LabVIEW will start these processes up as it attempts to use them.  When you shut down LabVIEW you will need to manually shut down these processes through task manager.  Again, doing this can cause problems with your NI products on your system and it is not advised.

    3) select the Profile you like to adjust
    4) Select App Alerts
    5) Select Email
    6) You sould see your 3 mail accounts listed

  • In Elements 13, how do I turn off default setting that sends my usage info to Adobe?

    In Elements 13, how do I turn off default setting that sends my usage info to Adobe?
    Vendors of proprietary software want to track everything you do.  Adobe says that it is possible to turn off sending info to them, but doesn't include any info on how to do it.

    Go to the main page of adobe.com and sign in if you aren't already signed in, then click Manage Account>Sign In again>Security & Privacy>Desktop App Usage Information.

  • I have purchased (veranda magazines) for my IPHONE which I would like to use on my macbook air. Do I have to repurchase these app or is there some way to get them in my macbook air with no charge?

    i have purchased (veranda magazines) for my IPHONE which I would like to use on my macbook air. Do I have to repurchase these app or is there some way to get them in my macbook air with no charge?

    Veranda Magazine is a free app available for iOS devices in the iOS App Store.  You then purchase a Veranda Magazine subscription from within the app.  In other words, the app itself is free, but the contents are not.
    There is no way to duplicate or import this to a Mac.  Your Mac runs a totally different operating system.
    iBooks can now import to Mac since OS X Mavericks came out about a month ago.  But that does not apply to magazines or iOS Newsstand publications.

  • How can I turn off lots of failure popups when starting my mac?

    Dear community!
    Everytime I change my network, I get failure popups caused by missing server connection. How can I turn these messages off?
    I know the reason: at work I have lots of connections to different server and of course I don't have them at home.
    It's boring to click up to 10 times at these error popups to close them.
    Does anybody know how I can solve this issue?
    THX in advance for your help!
    Regards, Tina

    Please take each of the following steps that you haven't already tried. Back up all data before making any changes.
    Step 1
    Boot in safe mode.
    Log in and see whether you still have the problem. If you don't, it's caused by one of your login items or a system modification that loads at startup or login. Ask if you need help identifying it. A common offender is "Adobe Synchronizer," which is a component of some Adobe products.
    Step 2
    Triple-click the line below to select it, then copy the text to the Clipboard (command-C):
    ~/Library/PDF Services
    In the Finder, select
    Go ▹ Go to Folder...
    from the menu bar, paste into the box that opens (command-V). You won't see what you pasted because a line break is included. Press return. A folder may open. If it does, move the contents to the Desktop, or to a new folder on the Desktop. Log out and log back in. Test. If there's no change, put the items you moved back where they were and continue.
    Step 3
    Open the folder
    ~/Library/Preferences
    as in Step 2 and move the following items in that folder to the Trash, if they exist:
    com.apple.recentitems.plist
    loginwindow.plist
    Log out and back in again, and test.
    Step 4
    Other possible causes are references in the iPhoto, iTunes, or iMovie library pointing to the server, and bookmarks in the Preview application.
    Try rebuilding the iPhoto library.

    No, iCloud does not handle 3rd party mail, and Google can already sync to all your devices without any help.
    iCloud accounts are individual, there is no 'Family' account. Open an account for each user, each will have an iCloud address.

  • How do I activate my Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator applications now that I have upgraded to Mavericks?

    Since I have upgraded to Mavericks MacOSX 10.9.1  -  I am unable to open either my Adobe Photoshop CS and Adobe Illustrator CS programmes. Is there a simple solution to this? My QuarkXpress 9.3 programme made the change over successfully! 

    If all you did was install Mavericks over an older OS, you shouldn't have to do anything.
    If you erased the drive before installing Mavericks, then Adobe's servers don't know that you are installing the software on the same computer. Meaning, if you forgot to deactivate the software before erasing the drive, then as far as Adobe's servers know, you still have two computers with that serial number activated, and it won't allow a third.
    If you still have a full backup of your previous OS, restore it. Then deactivate the Adobe software. To save from having to overwrite your Mavericks install (mind you, this is all assuming you did an erase and install), create a separate partition on any drive to restore the previous OS and its apps to. Do the deactivation and remove the temporary partition. You should then be able to go back to the Mavericks drive and activate the software.
    If you did do an install of Mavericks over your previous OS and the Adobe software is still balking when it shouldn't, then you'll have to contact Adobe and straighten it out through them.
