So the journey begins. The trip is short this morning because I’ve got to start work shortly.
I’m a beginner at this program so thsy’s where we are starting. I will do my best to answer, or find answers to all questions. Everyoneis welcomed to chime in with questions, answers, or corections to my answers.
So like I said short and sweet this morning.
First – definitely get a mouse with a scrool wheel—even if you have a laptop. I got my mouse out last night and it makes a HUGE difference in using the program.
Next when you open a new sheet there’s this man standing there. Ten points to the one who can tell me his name! I know it already. Anyway – I don’t like the guy. He’s a sexist slob. How do I know this? because he appears to be walking and he has his head turned in the “Wow that’s a good looking woman” turn. :-) Just kidding guys.
To get rid of the little guy – use the select tool, the little arrow in the top left corner to select him and then right click and scroll up to erase or hide. You can also just click on him and then right click.
I believe to make him go away permanently you need to make a template. I’ll get into that later this weekend when my home internet is fixed and I have more time.
“Snip”——you know what that is right—- snip a stray thread off your shirt or you snip at your wife—- wait that must be snap at your wife——sorry. :-)
Snip is how you can stop what ever you are trying to do from happening again. Say, for instance you are drawing a line and are done and want now to draw a circle. You move your cursor to select the cricle but you are still dragging a line along for the ride to the circle tool.
To stop drawing your line, or rectangle or circle, etc. when you finish with the action press the “esc” or escape button. This “snips” off the line,ectangle, etc. and you can go merrily to another action.
OK, gotta go for now. Will do more exploring and more indepth blog this weekend.
Thanks guys and rememberEveryoneis welcomed to chime in with questions, answers, or corections to my answers.
