resizing a list

Jun 15, 2012 5:27 PM

Hey guys,

 

I have a kind of beginner question. I made a document with four layers:

 

background - parting linies - head lines - information

 

Each layer has many many elements (like parting lines: parting line 1, parting line 2, parting line 3 > each transformed 50 pixels).

The final result is a list that looks like this:

 

_______________

Head Line

- info

- info

_______________

Head Line

- info

- info

_______________

 

Now I want to resize the distances between each list element to 60 pixels. And it's a list that consists out of about 200 boxes. Is it possible to transform all elements the same way? Or do I have to mark each element on each layer that I want to transform? And which tool do I have to use? I have three columns and it would really take a long time to do this for each box and each elment of the box :-( There must be another way...

 

I hope someone understands my beginner problem :-/ Hard to explain in English

 

Thanks for your support...

    If these are still Type layers then use the Character styles panel.  Select all the text, and adjust the line spacing.  (upper right corner of the panel)

    Could you please post a screenshot with the Layers Panel visible?

    We can't see what is going on because the layers are hidden groups, but I suspect each Type layer is a seperate layer, which means you will have to move them one at a time. If you want to increase the distance betweenn a group of type layers, then just move the group, but I have a feeling you would have thought of that.

    Or can't I mark all I need and say "10 px down" like in Illustrator or Indesign?

    Select the Layer Groups, set the Ruler to pixels, hit command-T (or ctrl-T) and change the Y-setting in the Options Bar accordingly.

    Unfortunately the Options Bar’s entry fields don’t support mathematical operations yet.

     

    It would be possible to create a Script to get an entry-dialog for the offset, but that hardly seems worthwhile.
