Quick Tips

The font-resizing shortcut

Want to make your font size larger or smaller without going to the Size setting in the Options Bar? This one is really easy. Double-click the Type layer thumb nail to select your type. Then press Command-Shift-> (PC: Ctrl-Shift->) to make your font larger or Press Command-Shift-< (PC: Ctrl-Shift-<) to make it smaller. Bonus tip: Add the Option (PC: Alt) key to the mix and the size will change in increments of 10.

    hi, i’m experiencing a problem with my photoshop fonts and i’m hoping that you can help.

    when I type something say in 20pt size and I want to resize it to 25pt… everytime i highlight my text and change the size to 25, it automatically changes down to 19… if i try again it changes down to 18… 17… 16… etc… why?? And how can I stop it from doing that?!!

    Please help me, thanx!!
