Topics I've Started

Locked Files

30 January 2016 - 08:19 AM

Someone figured this out in a posting and explained how to fix the issue.  I can't find the thread and was hoping someone might be able to direct me to it.


When I transferred files to a new computer, I was not able to open a lot of files that were created on a Mac.  The title of the files appeared in green, not in black, like the other file names.  I recall the issue could be resolved by changing something in the properties of the files. 


I just purchased some files by EMA and LLO.  The titles are in green.  I would like to be able to save them and actually be able to retrieve them later on.

Automatic Resizing In Elements 14

18 January 2016 - 05:23 PM

I'm using Elements 14.  When I work on a layout that is smaller than SG papers and drag a paper into the layout, the paper is resized to fit the layout size.  Does anyone know if it's possible for the program to stop the auto resizing?  Is there a setting I don't know about?



Problem Using Embellishments

13 September 2015 - 06:38 PM

Good afternoon:


I hope someone has an answer for me as to why I'm having a problem using embellishments in Elements 13.  This issue doesn't always arise but has several times for me today. 


While working on a layout, I will add an embellishment.  After I resize it using the move tool, the transparent area around the embellishment turns white, so that the embellishment is within a white rectangle.  After much head scratching, I have been able to work around that by deleting the embellishment from the layout and photo bin and then opening it up again in Elements.  This is rather frustrating as the white area doesn't appear on all embellishments I use.


Is there a setting I may have changed to cause this?



April's Title Technique

I really liked how April treated the title for her Canada trip, an example in the newsletter.  How is that accomplished in Elements?
