Nothing Works On Mac Like On Windows

Recommended Posts

Let's start another thread which will be ignored by the program developers. Let's face it, if you bought this program while using Windows, you need to expect that things won't work like you're used to on your Mac. Just cut the losses and look for alternatives (like I will be doing ASAP).

I am in the process of editing a banner for a new website of mine. Mind you, I edited the banner of the last website I did on my Windows laptop, so, this is not the first time I am using this program for this purpose.

Issues I am facing: I have a two line text which has to be in a matching color. Neither the two-line text can be written while using one text layer, nor the color can be matched without extra steps.

First issue is that writing a two line text while being in the same text layer on a Mac does not function the same as on a Windows laptop. I must create two layers to get normal spacing between the lines because once I hit "return" to get to the next layer, the distance is obnoxiously wide and I can't find a way to make it normal, eg, looking like I just got to the next line, not skipped a line or two. On Windows I remember doing the same thing and it looked great, without any spaces between the lines.

Second issue is that I need to match the letter color with the logo. I remember this being super easy on the windows laptop: I selected the text, selected the color selector and went on the logo to select the color that I wanted for my text based on my logo. On Mac this is not possible. It doesn't matter if I select the text or not. If I am in my text layer and click on the color selector, I can only select colors from the inside of that window, from the color selector. I can, by no means, click on my logo and get the exact shade I want. 

Third issue is simple: there is no ruler or grid of any kind. I must place the image and text below exactly in the middle for the banner for it to display correctly on mobile devices. Forget a fancy ruler or fine grid. There is no way to tell if the layers are centered on the background, except by eye.

As for my other post regarding the automatic shadow on photos, I simply went on to subscribe to PicMonkey to edit my social media posts there. It's just that their compression algorithm didn't display my logo correctly. So, needed to fall back on this program as I lack the time currently to dive into extensive search for good non-monopolistic programs for Mac.
