    Thanks, Terry
    The 20% is HTML code and represents the space character, not the size of the graphic. Which browser are you using?

    Haven't used the new one enough to post a tip or trick, hopefully can get back into the swing of this.
    To answer your question..YES..all the embellishments, paper scraps, background papers are for BOTH versions..THe only difference is in the TEMPLATES..Version 2.0 can include the 1.0 version templates..BUT..the 1.0 CAN NOT accept the version 2.0..

    Talking Tip - for highlighting words or phrases

    Ever wanted to highlight certain words in your text to bring them to attention? Here's a fun way to do it.

    Open Journal Text box, type your text and format it to the size and font, choose a lightish colour and click OK
    Now copy and paste the copy of the text on the page.
    Double click the copy.
    Choose a suitable colour for highlighting your text.
    Delete everything execpt the word or phrase you wish to bring to attention.
    Change the colour of the word or phrase that you have kept.
    Click OK.
    Drag the handles of your new copy and pull them in so that the text box just shows the new text copy.
    Now zoom your page up so that you can see exactly what you're doing.
    Place the new text directly on top of the old text and voila! Highlighted text!

    See the thumbnail to see exactly what I'm getting at - its very effective and quite addictive!

    Thanks, FreeSpirit, for the highlighted text hint! This is something I've wanted to do since I started with SBM in 2006! What a clever hint - I used to make it so hard by leaving space, etc. Thanks!!!

    Default Tips - Colorizing

    I've read through this thread twice now and don't remember half of the tips that have already been done so I hope this isn't duplicated.

    While the new max 2.0 has some great new tools for adjusting color, let's not forget this simple way to change the overall tint of a photo/background, etc.

    Take a paper scrap (such as the different color construction papers included) and bring it into the layout.

    Resize the scrap to the same size as the photo/background etc.

    Then, either move it on top of the photo and decrease the transparency of the scrap

    or

    move it behind the photo and decrease the transparency of photo!

    Combined with changing the color of the scrap with the new adjust color options, the possibilities are endless for getting the tint just right.

    This example shows how I changed the tint of the original photo using this method (with a blue scrap) and then using it as the background for the layout.

    I am using Internet Explorer 8. The 20% is in the name when it is saved.. I don't know why I have this problem.. It is only with embellishments & papers from SBM family forums..

    Ok. I'm going to PM you so we can move it out of this thread and see if we can't figure out what's going on. I've got IE8 on a couple machines here and we'll see if I can try and duplicate the problem.
