    AI "image trace"

    Hi, all. I would like to know which of the historical versions of Adobe Illustrator have had the "image trace" function, that is, the capability to vectorize raster images. Did that begin with version 9 onwards, or was "image trace" featured before version 9? Thanks, Joe

    Input devices of the "mouse" type.

    Thanks, Levi, for giving name to what I am attempting to minimize the effects of; "judder" is just the thing that is perplexing me. I didn't know that the settings of a mouse can be adjusted. I kind of expect that such adjustments are limited with respect to the lower level mouse that I am...

    Requesting help in identifying a font.

    Wow, man...you're good! Thanks for that. After just a cursory comparison, I would say that you've nailed it. Are you able to discern which style of Zapf Chancery might be depicted here (light, roman, demi, or bold)? Do you know if ITC Zapf Chancery comes standard on the MacOS? I cannot find it...

    Requesting help in identifying a font.

    I should truly appreciate help in identifying the font used in the sample provided below. I don't know if it is an italicized version of a standard font, or if it is custom. It will be great if I can have the font precisely identified, but if not, then to have something similar will be nearly...
