Photoshop :: I Want To Stop Layers From Being Created Automatically

Jun 11, 2008

go to add a text block to an image, a new layer is created. I want to be able to manually create layers and simply click on the layer I want to work under and then do so. I want to shut off this automatic creation of layers. If I don't, I'll have about 200 superfluous ones.

Photoshop :: How To Stop Automatically Adjusting Raws Despite Options

Aug 31, 2012

it took some effort, and i dont remember all of what i did, but i finally got bridge to stop making auto adjustments on my raw images--though it still does if i zoom in when im full screened.
regardless, when i open a raw image in photoshop, it makes auto adjustments (and they are always hooorriblee).

-all the boxes under default settings are unchecked
- i select 'as shot' for white balance,

and so on; but without fail, every time it makes these ugly over saturated over contrasty or otherwise hideous versions of my images.
im not buying the whole 'digital negative' deal. i can see a full view images of my nondestroyed raw image, and seriously there needs to be a point to all the work i do on set to to get the right light and colors, and so on... im about to reinstall photoshop.
if i dedicate a lot of time, effort, and frustration, i can get them close to what they were, but its so impractical and frustrated to input this additional time for work.

Photoshop Elements :: How To Stop (write Tag Info) From Changing Date Photo Created

Nov 24, 2012

I am using PSE10 and I have just upgraded from lion to mountain lion 10.8.2. Previously when I clicked "write keyword tag and properties info to photo" it seemed to just do that. Since the upgrade to mountain lion when I click 'write keyword tag and properties info to photo" it also changes the date the photo was created to the date the info was written to the photo .
How I can get it to write the keyword info *without* changing the date the photo was created?

Photoshop :: Stop Sub-tools From Automatically Showing Up When Clicking Tool In Palette?

Feb 13, 2013

I must have clicked something or inadvertantly pressed a keyboard shortcut or something because a couple of weeks ago, the sub-tools on the tool palette started popping up without me having to hold down the mouse button for a second. Now when I click a tool (the rectangular marqee tool for example), the hidden tools (eliptical marqee, single row etc.).

InDesign :: How To Stop ID From Trying To Automatically Load The Fonts

Aug 2, 2013

In our workflow, we have a few users who are doing design work on Windows installations of IinDesign CS6 (2 in WIndows 7 and 2 in Windows 8).  On all four systems, we have noticed that when we open files from packaged folders that contain the Document Fonts folder, that InDesign slows to an excrutiating crawl, which makes working on the document near impossible. We've narrowed down this behavior to the AdobeFnt14.lst file that seems to be a result of InDesign opening the file using the fonts in that folder without being told to. Deleting that file will temporarily fix the problem, but InDesign recreates it when you open the corresponding document and then you have to delete it again.
We use Universal Type Cient for our font manager, but as far as I know, we didn't install any font auto activation plugins.
Other than deleting the font folder, we've not been able to figure out how to stop ID from trying to automatically load the fonts. We'd love to just turn that "feature" off so that we don't have the hassle. I'd rather have fonts missing and turn them on using our font manager, than have ID slow to an impossible crawl whenever we open archived files. How to stop ID from automatically loading fonts from a document fonts folder?

AutoCAD 2010 :: Stop UCS From Automatically Turning To World When Extrude A Circle

Mar 20, 2012

How to stop the UCS from automatically turning to world when extruding a circle?

Example: If you start with a circle drawn to your set 3 point UCS the quadrants are in line with the X & Y but as soon as you extrude the circle into a cylinder the UCS turns the quadrants to world, I want the quadrants to stay in the same place as my 3 point UCS position.

Not sure if it's just a system variable that need changing.

Illustrator :: Stop Automatically Adding Numbers To File Name When Exporting With Artboard?

Aug 15, 2012

I need to export with artboard. Illustrator automatically adds a number to my original file name. It won't even let me replace the old file. It is extremely annoying and makes flow with other programs really hard because they can't auto update, since the file name  changes. When you have multiple files, you can't be manually renaming all the time.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: River Analysis Reach Automatically Created

Jul 27, 2013

I have the River Analysis tools installed for C3D 2014 and any time I open a drawing, a reach is automatically created in the file. This is really annoying because it puts it down at the coordinates (0,-500) which pretty much makes zoom extents a useless command now.

Is this as designed? If it is as designed, how to turn it off?

Photoshop :: Why Would Adjustment Layers Stop Working

Mar 9, 2013

I was retouching a painting earlier and i could not get every detail because my adjustment layers stopped allowing me to paint on the mask.
I switched from ps v13 and v12 and niether would allow me to paint on the mask. All of the correction i did were on adjustment layers. I would add an adjustment layer and tweak it then invert the mask and then paint with the brush. Then i would merge layers. After about 4 merges it stop allowing the painting on the mask.

Photoshop :: New Layer Created Below Selected Layer Automatically?

Jun 18, 2013

Is there a way to change the functionality of the layers so that when a new layer is created or a layer is duplicated that it automatically is created below the selected layer? I always organize my files with elements at the top of the document at the top of the layers panel and have them in decending order (unless there is a reason for an object to be above another) so that it is easier to navigate the page. Right now this means I spend a lot of time moving layers up and down which gets rather annoying. I believe I saw at one point that there is a key command for duplicating a layer below the existing one, but I can't remember how anymore. ability to make a blanket change in preferences.

Photoshop :: Automatically Merge Base Layer With All Other Layers Individually

Sep 27, 2013

I would like to know if there is a way to automatically merge a "base" layer with all other layers individually.  For example, Layer one is an image, the "base layer".

Layers 2 thru 200 are images that need to be merged with the base layer individually and then saved as individual files.  We are now turning layer 2 on and saving, turning layer 2 off, turning on layer 3 then saving, etc.  Hoping to find an easier and quicker method.

The problem that I run into is when I exit the pre-comp and view the final composition the nested layers become pixelated. The layers are vector layers and I have tried everything that I can to correct the problem.

3ds Max :: Automatically Apply Materials To Layers?

Apr 18, 2011

Is there a function or script that lets you automaticly apply materials to layers by name? Lets say I import a DWG that has 3 layers. Layer 1, 2 and 3 but no materials. I have 3 materials in my scean that are called 1,2 and 3. Is it possible to have all the objects in layer 1 to get material 1 applyed, all objects on layer 2 get material 2 and so on without manualy applying to each layer. For example if I have 100 layers and a 100 materials it would be a hastle and take long. I'm thinking there might be a script or function for this. I have looked but not found one.

AutoCAD LT :: Crash - Many New Layers Created By Annotative Scales?

May 23, 2012

I went to change the annotative scale while working on a drawing and LT 2011 crashed. When I recovered the drawing there are now over a 1000 new layers, I assume related to the annotative scales I had used.

What do I do with this mess? I am scared to start working on this drawing because I don't want all these new layers. I thought a central point of annotative scales was to simplify layer management. What happens when it blows up on you?

Update: I found that I can purge these layers out and just did that. I will give another update if things get weird again.

AutoCAD 2013 :: Setting Layers To Automatically Change?

May 23, 2012

Is there a way in AutoCAD 2013 to have it automatically change to a certain layer when you do common tasks.  I am wondering if there is a system variable, or a routine that I could automatically load when I start AutoCAD to do this.  It would also be nice that the layer would then go back to the original layer that was being used prior to the command.  What are my options for doing this.

For instance when I load an xref I would like it to go on the layer; A-XREF.  When I insert a block I would like it to go on the layer; 0, when I create a new dimension I would like it to go on the A-DIMS layer,  when I create a hatch it would set to the layer A-WALL-PATT, when I add a leader  with text it would go to A-ANNO-NOTE, etc..
