Well, I've been using Photoshop for over 2 years now, and I'm completely lost with my most recent problem...
I started making a userbar for myself, so I made the background, made the lines, the reflection etc. then went to add the text - and this is where things went wrong.
I used the Font Visitor TT2 BRK, or Visitor TT1 BRK, which is a pixel font - used in userbars by many people. I've used this font before without any problems and I've never updated the font, nor Photoshop.
I use 12, or 13 px with this font - and have done for about a year now, so I'm used to it. But the font just isn't appearing as 12 or 13 px - it looks about 0.1px?!
Look at these to help me explain the situation:
This is the problematic userbar:
This is one of hundreds of userbars I've already made with the same font, the same Photoshop, the same Mac, the same sized font!:
You can quite clearly see that the text/font tool is pretty messed up and I'm wondering if I'm missing something here?
The only new thing is OS X Leopard...but that's nothing to do with Photoshop - or at least, I don't think it would affect the Photoshop Text Tool.
Use these settings :)
But instead of Black use white and stroke the text with 1px black border.
Thanks, but it's all fixed now hopefully. I've got Adobe CS3:Mac now, so all is well =p
CS3 is awesome.. Really like it. Glad to hear your problem is fixed though.
Thanks, and yea it's pretty nice. Looks amazing on a Mac with all the nice floating menu with the really sweet skin.
And when you switch program, the floating photoshop bars/menus fade away instead of vanishing.
Oh cool now I know how to make a userbar. I always hated doing that and I think I have a shot now, great help from both of you.
