How do you insert a "cut here line" with scissors?
Draw a dotted line, use the line tool and place a line, use the stroke panel to select a dot stroke and weight.
Draw a text frame, then go to your wingdings font, and open up the glyphs panel (Type>Glyphs) and look for the Scissors symbol in the glyph.
Are people that stupid that a dotted line and a form or directions aren’t enough information and they need a picture of scissors to know to cut out a coupon? Those people probably can’t read anyway. Still, you can draw a pair of scissors, search Google for them, or use any of the one built into WIngdings or Zapf Dingbats.
Thank you: Michael, Eugene and Scott for your helpful answers. I have decided to use only a dotted line without a picture of scissors.
From Michael Gianino:
What do you mean by "with scissors"? You can make cut lines with any tool that can make lines (like the pen tool, for example).
I decided to eliminate the scissors, because I became convinced that just a
dotted line is more elegant in a document than a picture of scissors with
it. I found the scissors glyph, but in the end it reminded me of free clip
coupons you get in junk mail. I decided that I needed something more
dignified than that.
Thank you very much for your help.
Actually, I am printing only about 200 copies on my own laser printer on
legal size paper which comes as blanks, the perforation is 3" from the
bottom, which is perfect for my needs. Perforated paper blanks are available
readily at office supply stores. The registration I did is perfect, so the
dotted line is exactly on top of the perforation.
