Also - can you see the characters at the bottom of the Edit menu - see those nice little arrows three in from the left on the 'Roman' menu!  (its the default  - on my computer anyway!)   about third line down sort of convict broad arrows - how do I make them work??   Please

Denn  ;D ;D ;D ;D   Are you speaking English????    new layer??  Vector mask??  handles  (no I do know the last!!  ;))  but I can't see a free transform path in my Edit menu   I do have tools and it says resize - but that is not area size that is pixel size!!  phew that's a bit technical!!   ::)

Thank you Denn, give yourself a pat on the back.    I gave up on the manual, couldn't make head or tail of it, but this was soooooooooooooo easy.


Cheers
KHP :)

Glad to be of help, by the way another handy trick is to draw circles or elipses as in my examples.


Simply use the select tool to select a square, circle, elipse or any selection you wish. Then go to edit and in the dropdown box select stroke - that opens a box that will give you a choice of colour and line thicknes, make your choice, press enter and wallah!

That's good advice Denn - that's one heck of an arrow HP - well done!  You've earned a kip!

Wiggy, don't worry about what Denn is saying!  :D  He is talking about an entirely different program on a Windows computer.  ;)

The "Special Characters" at the bottom of the Edit menu are the fonts (typefaces) which your computer is using.  Choose Annotate/Add Text and click/drag a "text box". You can then type anything into it, or choose an arrow symbol from the Characters palette.  Once again, it will stick when you save the image.
