Cropping & placing Illustrator images

Date August 28, 2011

I’ve just learned Illustrator to work on a graphic and later a site map for a webtext publication I’ve finishing for Computers and Composition Online. I could not for the life of me figure out how to resize the document in AI so I could output/place it as just that size I needed. Finally I […]

Inserting image into Adobe Acrobat X

Date July 8, 2011

More this past several months than anytime in the past I have had to sign PDFs that someone emailed me. Now, I love PDFs but I hate that they’re not really editable unless you have the correct software: Acrobat Adobe X. I was able to acquire the software but still had issues. Most of the […]

Google Docs Fail?

Date April 19, 2009

Earlier today I got a cryptic message from a student that Google Docs was down and they couldn’t get to their directions for tomorrow’s project. Now mind you, I assigned this over a month ago so why wait until today to go and begin to do your work? Later I got another message from a […]

Google docs gets an update

Date March 27, 2008

Last night I was grading and went to refresh Google docs.

Page breaks – Google docs now let’s the user set his or her […]

Del.icio.us tutorial

Date February 16, 2008

This rocks. This woman did the work for me, and she did it almost a year ago. Where’ve you been all my life? Liz B Davis made this Del.icio.us tutorial, and I require most of my classes to use this site. I would say less than half the students stick with it, but it’s definitely […]
