    Interesting.. I wasn't sure you could exchange style formats in Apub...but digging a bit deeper it is pretty straightforward. 1. If select text...and then select the 'create paragraph style' at footer of text styles you can attach the existing formatting to a new style (so you can pick up the style and name it) 2. Find and replace has the option of exchanging Paragraph and Character Styles from any existing one in the style panel/s (select the cog icon and choose your style)....I didn't know you could do this.......brilliant..that is really useful!..

    Thank you! I think!
  7. Afternoon, I must say how impressed I have been today with the new functionality added to the Raster Brush Dynamics...Thank you for all the hard work....brilliant!.. Spent some time today creating a new brush set to experiment with the new functionality..Released the set to forum in resources: Vegetation Set 3 for everyone use! destroy! abuse! I came across a few issues but nothing major...no crashes! yet! Drawing/painting smoother on screen overall Notes: 1. The combined use of the brush dynamics + sub brush menu works well but I had a few problems getting the Sync Size and Sync Spacing checkboxes to be immediately responsive. When adding an additional Sub-Brush and 'toggle/check/uncheck' changes don't appear on the sub brush menu until you return to the parent brush and adjust the size or spacing. 2. Sync Size and Sync Spacing checkboxes can re-activate if you return to parent dialogue box 3. I have had a couple of instances where the new dynamic controller/ramp for brush nozzles became sluggish and was unable to drag the nodes around on the line 4. When you add multiple sub-brushes there can be a slight delay in the activation of the brush...1/2 additional brushes work well and it's a good way to manipulate added nozzles separately (as I found today!) Is there a limit to number of sub-brushes you can add before it starts to slow the operation of the brush? 5. Sub-Brushes>Drawing>dropdown..select options (at current Nozzle; behind current Nozzle; at end of stroke)..works well except when you set 'behind current nozzle'..The thumbnail created in brush menu looks to be the opposite..i.e sub-brush stacked on top. Would be nice to toggle the sub brushes on/off from list... Useful to have sync toggles on brush context bar

    New Brush Dynamics [1.7]

    Thanks for fixing the sync issues...It is working much better now Spent some time experimenting with the enhanced functionality..and produced a new comprehensive 1.7 brush set... added to resources as usual (Project Brush Organics) again no crashes with latest version..There is a workflow issue when you create/edit lots of sub brushes (takes longer..as expected!)..worked around this by crating brush templates... I did come across 2 small issues... A.The Duplicate Brush added functionality in Brush panel works reasonably well but is there anything you could do about the non-sequential suffixes added if you duplicate the same brush >1 B. The duplicate brush on the brush panel and the duplicate button in brush dynamics do not appear to be consistent . On the Brush panel the brush name is remembered +Suffix, in the Brush dynamics you just get ''brush copy xx'
  14. Project Brush Organics Re-visited Created some new brushes mainly for backgrounds..or anything else and decided to explore the new brush features in AD 1.7 a little deeper.. So... Added new Project Brush Organics Set (based on some of my first brush efforts but with new nozzles and edited brush dynamics) Containing..as usual: 30 new Raster Brushes using sampled image bitmaps rather than drawn vectors (mostly!) [ProjectBrush - Organics.zip] PDF sample sheet as attached Extras However, as the new brush engine is so versatile... you are presented with so many fantastic options that small changes create greater varied effects/results to brush appearance. Therefore instead of developing a 120 brush set (as before).. I have included: 30 additional Nozzles (.png) and image references to extend the options [Nozzle Extras.zip] Secondary Brush set which only includes single nozzle samples (as sample jpg) so you can see what effect they have alone. [Project Brush - Nozzle.zip] Templates/Presets Having the option of adding Sub-Brushes can make it a bit more time-consuming creating single brushes...So I added the option of using' Brush Templates' as a starting point...These simply have different configurations of nozzles at the parent and sub-brush level (makes things a bit quicker and saved on some repetitive actions!) [Project Brush - Brush Templates.zip] Duplicate the template then Switch nozzles from sample set or anything else created! Being able to duplicate from the context menu (right-click on brush) on brush panel makes this really easy.. PROJECT BRUSH -Organics 01 01.pdf ProjectBrush - Organics.zip Extras Elements Nozzles 30 additional Nozzles for brush variation add to templates/single nozzle brushes as required (have fun!) Nozzle Extras.zip Secondary Brush 30 raster brush set containing only single nozzle without sub - brushes Project Brush - NOZZLE BRUSH.zip Version 1.7 Brush Templates Use as basis for editing Project Brush - Brush Templates.zip
  15. Added new version 1.7 Texture Paint Sample Set...for experimentation and fixed some typos

  17. Hi all This is a new small sample set of brushes I have been working on for several months with base textures, seamless patterns with mixed vector/bitmap nozzles. It is a larger single set containing 30 raster brushes I have changed the numeric s slightly on the brush reference sheet (it's just a number!) Sample sheet is attached enjoy!

    Texture Brushes 03 [Hatching]

    Thank you for downloading them...but these are 'old' brush sets there is a better and more comprehensive set here: Hatching Brushes Also have a look at: Brush Library
  22. Delay...not a problem I was beginning to think it was just me.....again!...just reported the bug and moved on...was not expecting an immediate fix.......I was relieved when @debraspicher came across the same problem. Thanks for looking in to the issue...I was struggling to source the cause or sequence of events. NB: Wacom updated their drivers!..eek! (6.3.32.3)..updated signature...
  23. Hi I have a couple of queries regarding the drawing tools (1.7) A Use of the pencil tool is not always following the track of the Wacom Pen seems to intermittently fail (Not sure what starts/causes it!)... I noticed this.. was present in the previous Beta Steps to reproduce: 1 Create new page 2. Select Pencil Tool or Pen Tool on new page (Snapping is OFF)..initially had several docs open including the sample brochure 3. Draw on new Page until occurs (Controller set to NONE + stabiliser ON or OFF) Occasionally the pencil starts to revert to linear lines between 2 points...not necessarily on the track of the pen 4. Close and Restart APP fixes issue B When you select the Pen tool+'Construction Snapping' sometimes the construction options are not visible. Select >Perform Construction Snapping...(aware Ben implied these tools may not reach final version)There will be a delay and then the options appear. Once icons present issue resolved (even between tool selection) NB:Construction snapping options appear after pen selected and click for first node C. Pen Selected + Pen Mode + add nodes to page +there can be a delay in adding the line connecting the latest line
  24. Wow..at last someone else has seen this behaviour!...reported it some time ago but it's not frequent..I would not work out what was causing this .Except noticed that If you work with nodes and leave the app alone for a few minutes it can occur..reboot resets back to normal for me anyway! The report was for Publisher...here There is also a small movie there as well

    Bezier nodes difficult to work with

    Hi Sarah, Sean Interesting! I was just reading @Ben response to copying (cloning) nodes in the beta (mac section)..and playing around with it ...on a PC..nice feature! didn't know it was there..but you learn something everyday...However.... Sara's description of Bezier nodes 'jumping around' has just happened to me...I was thinking this issue was fixed as I had not seen it until today in the Designer Beta 1.7 version...but Steps to reproduce Difficult to describe...as is very infrequent and a reboot fixes the issue...so for experimentation try.... 1. Play around with Ben's marvellous feature... snap nodes to 2 different Bezier lines... 2. Toggle Snapping on and off (As drawing with it on can be a pain!) 3. Leave the screen alone for a few minutes (sometimes..and is it sometimes!) you cannot drag around the nodes they to seem to snap randomly...I am sure that is not the case.there must be some logic to it... 4. Then go back to moving the nodes around on the lines The report was for Publisher...here There is a video associated with it here I was wondering whether this could be the same issue
