Re: [COPYRIGHT] Question about Copyright for a Translation

Over most things, an attorney cannot guarantee much of anything. And you can be sued for anything by anyone, being 100% right/innocent does not prevent a law suit. But seeing an attorney demonstrates another layer of prudence, should something happen. From your description, I don't think you'd have ...

Re: [FORMATTING] Serif PagePlusX5 CREATESPACE

I have used PagePlus, but it has been years, and it was more to familiarize myself with the program than to replace InDesign. As for problem, I have had problems on all desktop publishing and word processing programs. Problems are not unique to PagePlus, but if all you have is PagePlus and you have ...

Re: [COPYRIGHT] Question about Copyright for a Translation

Good to see you over here. Lighthouse gave a good answer in the CS forum. The copyright laws for each country differ, and in the case of the Soviet Union, apparently quite a bit. However, the work would appear to covered under Germany's laws (published in Germany in 1925 . . . what is Germany's copy...

Re: [SELF-PUBLISHING] Templates

Most print-on-demand services must limit their options in order to be competitive. For the p-o-d world books are books and that's pretty much it. If you want a playing card template, that, in itself is easy to make. If you want to have them printed, then you would have to work with a printer to find...

Re: [THE FORUM] Are we functioning

The security change (SSL, secure socket layer, etc.) is going to be required by Google starting in July. Signing in here for a few weeks, brought up a warning that the site was not secure. After installing SSL, that warning no longer pops up. My understanding is that if you simply signed in, no prob...

[THE FORUM] Are we functioning

I've updated the security status of the site, etc. etc. But there has been almost no activity on the site, not even spam? Is the site being used? Is it dead?

Re: [INTRODUCTION]I am the new guy

Assuming this isn't spam, I have changed the heading. This should be posted in the Social forum.

Re: [CREATESPACE] Inside Margins

I don't have much time, and I am having problems with my video card. My first guess is that you have, or CS thinks you have, live elements that are inside the out-of-live margin (0.25" around each page inside the trim line). For example, it looks like the woman's face inside an oval (upper left, lef...

Re: [CS Embedding] Embedding PDF

The file name indicates the kind of format: arial.ttf (TrueType) vs. minion_pro (OpenType).

Navigate to the font folder (in most PCs: C:/Windows/Fonts). Then click on the font(s) you are interested in then click on properties. On the General tab, you can see the kind of font it is.

Re: [CS Embedding] Embedding PDF

First, you need to understand that there are two basic kinds of fonts in use today: TrueType (.ttf) and OpenType (.otf). The file name extension distinguises the two: e.g. arial.ttf or minion_pro.otf. From our point of view they are the same. OTF was an improvement of TTF. All Adobe fonts, for examp...
