    Automatic Layers Palette

    Would anyone like to guess whose suggestion was the one that worked and solved my problem? Thank you, Mr. John Wheeler, for leading me to the Shapes Panel and the answer to my quest!! I knew it was probably going to be a very simple solution and had already tried all kinds of solutions with...

    Automatic Layers Palette

    Oh, and IAmSam, you are right. The text tool is not the one causing me issues. It is the line tool that is not behaving as it has in the past. The text tool does create its own layer immediately and keeps that layer in the layers dropdown as long as I click on the accept checkmark. Sorry...

    Aha!!! Now THAT may be the answer! Since the PC that I use at my place of business (volunteer work) is "handled" by a number of other volunteers during each week, someone may have changed that Path Operation selection. I will have to check that out on Monday, too!! And, please accept my...

    Thank you, Bestie!! I know that most tools have different options when using them and I'm pretty sure that isn't the issue here. However, like you and not being in front of my work PC (I am such a Macaholic), one never really knows what the tool settings are unless you are in front of them...

    Thank you, Ged! I will try that out on Monday and will let you know if that process works or not. Sadly, I have to admit that the work PC has PSCS5 on it. I'm going to start slowly pushing for a new version. Thanks!

    Correct. My, you DO have a very fancy and ultra-modern toolbox! Hmmmmm. Gonna have to ask my bosses if they'd like to upgrade to a more modern PS!

    Automatic Layers Palette

    As you can see, I work on drawings, not photos and in order to get these drawings down to the sizing required and to move parts and pieces into the nicest looking placement, we use PS. Where you see the "lines" at the bottom right of the image, I use these to indicate the sizing of each section...

    Oh, wait. I am currently on my Mac. Does this change how I go about attaching an image?

    I actually tried it that way first with no success. Once I clicked on upload, nothing happened. Maybe I need another cuppa?

    Automatic Layers Palette

    OK, sorry about that. I guess I should have told you that I am working on an antiquated version of PS, 5 CS. On my work screen, I have in my tool panel a line tool and a text tool. Whenever I would work on a drawing (I work with scans of very old pen and ink drawings of parts & pieces of...

    Automatic Layers Palette

    Over the holidays, some updates were done to the computers where I do volunteer work and my PhotoShop 5CS has stopped bringing up new layers automatically. Prior to this, when working on a pen and ink drawing, each time I added a new "line" or "text", and new layer would show up in my Layers...

    Problem Moving Image to New Page

    To Tom M and MrTom, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!!!!! Total success!! Once I looked at my previous work and compared notes on what numbers showed up in the "image size", I was shocked at the numbers that showed up for the current documents. When I brought those docs down to size...

    Problem Moving Image to New Page

    Hi, Tom and thank you for stepping in, too! Since I haven't had this issue for almost 18 months now, I am assuming it is something simple like one of the settings having been changed and I just haven't put my finger on which setting that might be yet. I'll be testing out MrTom's suggestion on...

    Problem Moving Image to New Page

    Well, I'll give that a try on Monday. I only do this volunteer work two days a week, Mondays and Fridays. So, I'll test this out on Monday. Meanwhile, I'll take a look and see if Amazon carries a book called PhotoShop for Dummies and buy a copy. I may need it in the near future. Nana

    Problem Moving Image to New Page

    Forgive me, MrTom. Guess I am so rattled by this PS problem that I am forgetting my manners. Yes, I guess my new "page" would translate into new "document" for you. What I do for my boss is to scan original pen and ink drawings of orchid blossoms. For the sake of using these illustrations...

    Problem Moving Image to New Page

    OK, Tom. Sorry about the use of non-PS verbage. This should prove just what a newbie I still am. . And, if I can figure out how to attach a photo of my work, I'll do that. To wit, I am using PS while doing volunteer work for a botanical garden. I usually work with pen and ink drawings of...

    Problem Moving Image to New Page

    I've come upon a problem with moving images over to a new page and have spent the past 2 weeks trying to figure out why this is happening. I never had this issue before. Now, every time I move an image over from the original scanned image to a new page, it appears on the new page...
