TIP Palette Shortcut

As always, Photoshop's ready with a shortcut to make your life a little bit easier! You can adjust font settings quickly by hovering your cursor over a field label in the Character palette. The cursor will change to a double-arrow hand. Decrease the field value by clicking and dragging the mouse to the left, or increase it by clicking and dragging to the right. This technique works for most numerical options in Photoshop's palettes.
