In Topic: Underscores Vs Hyphens - Help!

18 April 2014 - 07:38 PM

Bummer, because I find hyphenated file names MUCH harder to read.

 

If you want to replace spaces or underscores with hyphens, or do other renaming, try Bulk Rename Utility, It's free, and fabulous, although the interface is not pretty.  Its help will guide you, though. Download it at http://www.bulkrenameutility.co.uk/Main_Intro.php. 

 

I use it all the time, especially for ScrapSimple products.  We get "BMU_SSPaper_ModernDay... and I prefer BMU_ModernDay_SSPaper... since I want the specific collection/product name right after the artist initials. 

 

I replace dashes with underscores (so far) and adjust product names to use the same spelling or abbreviation.  Example: Wildflowers, Wldflwrs, etc.  REALLY helps me keep things easier to sort and find.

 

I will have to think about the dashes.


In Topic: Folders For Suppies?

I do as April does--I keep two copies of everything.  One by collection, and the other is sorted by what it is:  Embellishments, then Flowers or ButtonsBrads, etc, Paper, RedPinkMagenta, GreyBlack, AquaTurquoiseTeal, etc.  I cannot find the post where I enumerated the whole list right now.  Guess I'll have to re-post that.

 

I usually try to find a collection that generally works, then add in components to suit.


In Topic: Paper Cut Outs

Carol, now that I understand better... Place a color paper, and layer a border such as ScrapSimple Paper Templates: Edgers Making Waves above it.  CTRL + Click the edgers paper and then invert the selection (CTRL + SHIFT + I).  Select the color paper layer and click Delete.  Then remove the edgers paper.  This cuts out the "open space" in the Edgers paper.  This will work with any of the templates suggested.

 

Hope that helps!

Ande, Elisha did several papercutting designs recently for the ScrapSimple Club; here are a couple of her products in that club.  Is this what you mean?

or did you mean paper dolls?  If you search for doll, there are quite a few products in that style & art journal style.
