Well, I've made it through another day on the monster machine. We are learning how to tolerate each other. I tell it what I want to do, and it tells me know what it's going to let me do. So I'm not exactly winning - but I'm not losing!
Stay positive, things just have to get better. And I think they just might. I actually made some scrap stuff and finished a layout on this new pc. I'm not just trying to recoup some of my files, but I also have to learn Vista. I'm not nuts about it because it doesn't like most of my favorite programs, and won't run them. Also, I now have Photoshop PS CS4, and it's a whole new learning experience.
Why is it when companies upgrade a terrific product or program, they feel they have to rearrange everything, hide as many things as possible, and take away anything that's not broken. I spent an hour last night looking for the little tab that shows the history of the layout I'm working on. An hour!!!
I spent the better part of the evening fighting with CS4 trying to keep my item windows open long enough to work on them. This morning I clicked damn near every button to see what it would do - and voila!! my little individual windows came back. This is not a very nice thing to do to little old ladies like me. Or anybody else for that matter.
Before I turn in for the night, I'll share the layout I made for the chat last Friday night. Snow Raven supplied the frame and tag and a couple of PS styles, and the rest was up to us. Enjoy.
Have a great night.
Hugs, Edna B.
