  1. I just wonder. When I start a new document, units are always millimetres (as I prefer), but when I open any PDF, units are always points. Why? Can this be changed?
  2. Exposure & Brightness is weird stuff... I wonder why photographers insist on using such tools (or maybe it is just developers who think photographers want them?). Here is some explanation what is going on: https://www.lightxapp.com/difference-between-brightness-and-exposure/ I would much prefer to operate just with white point, black point and gamma. And curve when more control is needed. And hilight recovery and shadow controls :-D I guess some apps apply advanced curve controls when exposure and brightness are used (think manipulating "knee" and "elbow" points in density curves of photographic film). Anyway I do not think AP develop tools are very easily understood. I sure am not confident with them.
  3. Not commercially.. more like testing environments or hobbies.
  4. Devs should add a popup menu which remembers last entered equations/sets.
  5. It is quite quick also to place pictures manually if the images are named alphabetical order. Select all images in Place command and place 1, move to next page, place next and so on.
  6. Halftone filter can do this. It results though greyscale (or b&w) image so you have to colorize white and black to orange and red. Takes some fiddling with fill layers and blend modes. Surely there are other means for colorizing too. Text/glasses have to be separate layer as it is not halftoned.
  7. I think the core problem is that CAD software does not group or layer objects in PDF any useful way, but rather randomly. It may be because CAD developers see PDF only as delivery format, not a transfer format. I usually work CAD to PDF exports in Designer.
  8. It would be wonderful if devs would develop this kind of style automation but so far no one has implemented such. It would be a great time saver to apply rule based styles to whole publication.
  9. Photo is a tool for manipulating images. Cropping removes unwanted parts of the image. Now, if you want to replace unwanted parts with transparent areas or white, that is another function. Not too hard either.
  10. You can open and save files from/to external drives as you please. You though have no control over scratch disks, I suppose system handles that part and uses just startup disk for scratch.
  11. Libre does not open DWG. FreeCAD imports DWG to filelist but crashes when I try to open the file to a window. I will check those online converters but I suppose they are just googled ones, you do not really use them, do you #v_kyr? At least Autodesk Viewer does not print or export vector data.
  12. Have you found any clever tools for converting DWG to Designer? I have tried some of those chinese DWG > PDF converters that Mac App Store offers but so far either they have no working trial or they are unable to keep scale. I suppose can use heavy CAD apps for converting but I would rather use something light and simple. Mac is my platform of choice.
