I like the new dark mode in macOS Mojave, but sometimes I need to switch back to light mode. I wanted a faster way than having to go into System Preferences. While looking for an answer, I came across a simple AppleScript that I want to share with everyone. Don’t worry if you’ve never even used and AppleScript before, this is easy to use and you don’t have to understand anything about AppleScript!
In CC 2017, Adobe completely redesigned Photoshop’s File > New dialog, but it’s slow to open and not as nice to use. The useless thumbnails are large, while the written specs (which are the most important thing) are smaller and harder to scan.
Luckily there’s a way to get the previous dialog back! (This also works in Adobe Illustrator.)
Did you know in Apple’s Mobile Safari browser you can reopen a tab that you recently closed? It’s pretty well hidden, so many people would never know. It remembers the last 5 tabs you closed, and here’s how to find it.
I made my first YouTube video for Deke’s Techniques: The Challenge, back in 2012. The techniques still work (even in the latest versions of Illustrator), so I wanted to post it here now that I have a blog.
I won third place with this video. The contest had specific requirements for content and time, but I think you’ll learn some cool text effects in Illustrator.
