    Problems with Alignment on Commercial Print Job

    Bigthogski Level 1
      I am doing the table of contents for a print magazine and I am using graphics and colors and here is where I am stuck


      Photographers
      Ryan Taylor.........12
      Melissa Tucker....14

      What sucks is that I can get it to align by nudging it over with the text tool that so far is going unnamed. However this is so time consuming that I am convinced there has to be a better way.

      A little HELP!!!! will go along way,


      Thanks in advance
      Ryan

          Try adjusting the Kerning. Consider use the right program for the job.
          Fireworks was developed for Web graphics. For something like you are
          working on, use Adobe InDesign or Pagemaker.

            Plus you will have a really hard time trying to get this to print - since fireworks only saves/exports as png, gif, jpg (unless I'm mistanken). The only way I can think of is if you export each page to .psd and save them as a printable file from photoshop (tiff or pdf).

            Try indesign or QuarkXPress. Plus you wont have any problems ligning up your columns there.

              What will go a longer way is using the right tool for the job and, for
              print work, Fireworks is not it.

              Use FreeHand or Illustrator instead.
