  1. I have just dug my old faithful Epson Perfection 3170 Photo scanner out for my brother to use with Windows 10. The Epson support site does indeed offer a driver and the software for Windows 10 and even the Win10 "Scan" software will produce a file. I can live with the extra step instead of the old Twain support, even if it was nice to scan directly from the graphics software..
  2. Excellent! Thanks for your hard work!
  3. I am happy to see that there is a new version 1.6.1 for download for both Designer and Photo (Windows). Where do I find the release notes?
  4. Hi Dawid, You have produced an excellent overview of Designer. I agree that the text is the part that takes the most time to prepare, once your priorities are in place. In fact, I would consider your text to be ideal for the speak/voice-over of a video showing each principle as you mention it. In my experience a lot of people find it hard work to read lengthy texts (even with copious amounts of illustrations), however well they are presented. They prefer a video explaining and showing. For the ideal solution it should be interactive, but that is a whole new project in itself, I know. Great work! Nils
  5. Ofek, could it be that the segment has an unintentional stroke?
  6. Hi Alfred Thanks for showing! The dashed circle is a great example of how to use Designer's many great features.
  7. Tab. So easy - and so easy to hit by mistake :D
  8. Could you cheat and make the last, tapering, part separate, then join the two parts? I just tried: 1. Create the line, choose general stroke thickness. 2. Go to Node tool, choose or insert a node where the taper should start. 3. "Break curve" and apply Pressure to the stroke shown with nodes. 4. Join - or adjust - the two parts of the signature.
  9. Thanks. This time it was not my feeble mind... :D
  10. I would use Power Duplicate (Ctrl+J), gradually moving the copy and decreasing opacity.
  11. I much prefer this forum to several, each requiring registration and - more - apps. Nice suggestion, but not for me. B)
  12. Yes. Copy the layer (right-click on it in the Layers list, or highlight it, then press Ctrl+C. Insert into other layer Using the top menu item Edit, then Paste Style or Paste Fx. I am using Windows.
  13. Hi reglico, Sadly not. The Pressure option works exactly the same with a tablet as with the mouse. I was hoping to apply physical pressure to the stylus to freely vary the thickness of the stroke. The method you illustrated distributes the variation equally along the vector line. I may have misunderstood, though.
  14. I copied the oval from its own layer to the carbon layer. Then it was possible to drag to confine the carbon pattern to the oval. See attached.
  15. Yes - at least in Lightroom 5: Edit - Preferences - External editing - Choose...
