Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Cleaning up text, part of Designing a Magazine Layout (2009).
So now I will back in layout14 with a rule on style text, and we are going to…see how we can clean this up. Now before I go ahead and stop cleaning this…article up, I am also going to place these secondary articles, so that the…Clean Up that we apply will affect that too.…And before I do that, I am going to turn -off my Baseline Grid, since we are not…using it at the moment, and it is kind of getting in the way. So, I am going to…hide the Baseline Grid and go to the next spread, Option+Page Down or Alt+Page…Down, and then Click in this text frame, Command+D or Ctrl+D, or File and Place…and the one that we are after is topten, the raw version of that. So we are…going to go into that one right there. I will Click on the right plus move…to the second frame in that thread and to flow in there, and we have some…overset text right there but we are going to make all of that fit into those…two columns by the time we finished with it.…
Now it doesn't really matter where we off of this next step. But let's zoom in…

Skill Level Intermediate
Q: The instructor explains that doubling-clicking on an image while holding down the Option key on a Mac will automatically open the image in Photoshop. However, the image opens into Preview instead. Why is this happening?
A: Before this feature will work, the correct file type associations must be set up, so that TIFs and JPEGs open with Photoshop and not with Preview.
From the Finder, select any JPEG or TIF file, then Choose File > Get Info. From the Open With drop down menu, choose Photoshop and click the Change All button. Repeat this process for each of the different file types you want use. You need only do this once and it should work from now on.
