Adobe Photoshop Design Tip

Here’s a simple solution to turn the Snap to Vector Tools and Transform to Pixel Grid on or off in a fast(er) way, instead of having to go into the Preferences settings…

1. Transform to Pixel Grid

1. Transform to Pixel Grid

To switch the Transform to Pixel Grid setting on/off you need to go to  Preferences > Tools, which makes it a hidden setting.  When I work on pixel perfect icons I use it a lot. Problem is, I don’t want to go to the Preferences all the time to turn it on or off. That’s too much of a hassle and too time consuming…

2. Record an Action

2. Record an Action

So I’ve decided to record an Action for switching it off, and one for switching it back on. It’s really simple: in the Action panel hit the record button to record your steps: go to Preferences > Tools. First record when you turn if off, and then again when you turn if back on. After saving your action, choose a shortcut (for both the on & off action). Now you can turn this setting on/off in no time by using this shortcut or by playing the action.
