  1. I need to re-color the attached SVG file of a client logo. I can't get Designer to Fill the white with any other color. I've searched and watched all kinds of tutorials, but none are addressing this. I can grab the image and modify it with Styles and Effects. What am I not doing properly? Novice user here. Need some help here pls. THANK YOU! PSS LOGO w URL - WHITE - SVG.svg
  2. Thanks. That's what I was afraid of. I'll have to use the fill feature in Irfanview to make my changes.
  3. I have a PNG file that is a monochrome skyline silhouette (see attached). I want to fill the grey buildings with another color. How do I do this? I have watched the tutorials but the Color Picker and Fill tools don't seem to do the job. I can do this easily in Irfanview, surely we should be able to do it in Designer. What am I missing?
  4. I have created some very simple vector objects. Some are on Artboards and some are not. Recently, when I select the object to export, the output saved (as PNG or JPG doesn't matter) often includes a random are of blank white space behind it, that was never selected. I have used Designer for several years and never had this problem until recently. Ultimately I have to crop what should be a clean image, down to the correct dimensions. The problem starts in the selecting process. Does not matter if I'm in Designer or Pixel Personas mode. EX: If my selected object of choice is square, I will see the size box improperly showing as some rectangular dimension. Not even close to square. When saved, the resulting file show a huge rectangular area of empty space with the desired object in the lower right corner. I understand not to select the entire workspace or artboard - I am only selecting the desired object. This also happens with or without the background included. It's clearly not right but I can find no help to fix it. Please advise ASAP. I am wasting a lot of time doing added work that I never had to before.
  5. Thanks Arun. That's what I thought. I don't have Photo. Really a shame because it's such a useful tool. Should not be that hard to create.
  6. How can I create in Designer, the equivalent of the "Envelope" feature which used to exist in Serif DrawPlus? I understand the Node tool works on shapes, but it does not seem to work on text. Please advise. Thanks, AC
  7. Why is there NO "Envelope" or "Warp" tool in Designer?! It's absurd! Envelope was there in Serif DrawPlus. Creating arc'd text (not on a path) is a BASIC text modification. With all the complex things Designer can do, why is this missing? This has been requested for years!
  8. Thanks Walt. I actually tried that, which is why I'm still baffled. When I do the Marquee > Edit / Copy > Edit / Paste, the area I select is empty and nothing is Copied. Attached is my Designer file. Mask-erade artwork.afdesign
  9. I have a PNG image (attached) that I need to clone the dark background area of the image over the text at the top. How do I do that? I'm sure it's dead simple but I have tried searching all types of terms and looked through the tutorials to no avail. Thanks, ACP
  10. WOW... this was about as much fun as a root canal! After much head-banging and many words of ill color...I flushed the cache, etc and shut down / restarted ye old PC. Miraculously, the various steps above now work. Was not doing anything different. Sheeeeesh. Thanks to all. GREATLY appreciate the quick and helpful responses.
  11. Gave this a quick try and ...nothing. Appreciate the help. Have to go into a client mtg. Back at this later.
  12. Thanks... here is the file. Appreciate you taking a look. I have NO idea why this is not working. When I move the image up onto the elipse, in the Artboard, they both disappear. When I try to move the Image onto the Elipse in the Layers area, nothing happens. Clearly I am not doing something right.
  13. I need to fill shapes with images, in Designer. I've watched a tutorial which instructs me to create the Shape and then drag the desired Image (already in the working space) up onto the Shape. In the tutorial, the shape fills with the image on both the Artboard and the Context dashboard . However, when I try the same actions, nothing happens. See screen-shots below. I have a project due TODAY. Need an answer ASAP pls. THANK YOU IN ADVANCE!
