This is one for anyone who uses FW and PS. I'm pretty familiar with FW, but am just having to use a trial of PS to make use of a PS template to do a quick design project. (And hopefully learn a bit of PS along the way).
In FW its easy to copy a shape, and paste it. But I can't seem to see how to do that in PS? I tried selecting a layer, cut and paste but it deleted the entire file.
I've figured out the 'Show Transform Controls' button, but is there a way to enter values for a change in size like there is in FW? eg to reduce the size by 50%?
And lastly, I'm not too sure about selecting the colour for a new shape - I had thought it was done by selecting the two overlapping squares at the bottom of the toolbar, and selecting a colour there, but doesn't seem to be working as I'd thought.
Anyway - off to find some online help as well.
D'oh - the colour is set in the options bar. I'll get my coat....
Duplicate a Vector Shape in PS:
- drag/drop the Shape Layer onto the New Layer icon in the Layers Panel
- Right Click > Duplicate the active Layer or from the Layer menu
- Ctrl/Command + T will get you the Free Transform handlers. When you see it, look up on the Options Bar, you sgould see a slew of fields for X/Y | W/H | H/V. Tick the link icon between the W/H
