  1. Merci pour la précision, bonne fin de journée.
  2. Bonjour Wikinger, Pour info, ici avec Windows 10 et la version venant du Windows Store, l'affichage est le même dans l'onglet du studio et dans la fenêtre qui s'ouvre en cliquant dessus.
  3. Hello HDoowop, Thanks for the feedback, I just wanted to bring a little precision: I used for my example rings with a 3D effect and that's why the shape I add is transparent. If this shape is coloured the change is well done but it leaves a trace on the trace. Please see my screenshot. On the other hand, in the case of rings without any applied effect, I use coloured shapes like @Alfred and yesterday he taught me that we can make compounds between shapes that don't touch each other, which saves a little time for this kind of drawing.
  4. Thank you Alfred, the attached file was very useful. At first I didn't understand that you could do "Add" with shapes that didn't touch each other. I thought the shapes had to overlap. Thank you for enlightening me on this point and for taking the time to make the file! This method is much more pleasant.
  5. HDoowop, thanks for the feedback, I made you a little video about the second example, sorry for the quality, I have a small configuration and everything is not always fluid! Draw the first link, copy it. Paste it a first time on itself, move it to the desired place and change the color. Paste the link on itself a second time: you get two blue links on the left (as they are superimposed you see only one) and a red link on the right. The red link must be located between the two blue lines (see the layer panel). Then draw the transparent shape (no fill or contour) on the crossing, which must not change. When you drag the thumbnail of the upper link into the transparent shape layer, the opposite crossing changes. Maillon.wmv
  6. Good morning Alfred, Thanks for the tip but I confess I don't understand the procedure to follow!
  7. If you want to represent all the links flat, draw the first link (blue in my example), copy and paste it, move it and change the color. Glue the blue link a second time on itself and above the assembly. Draw a transparent shape without borders on the crossing that should not change. In the layer thumbnails, take the upper circle and drag it into the shape thumbnail until you get a horizontal blue rectangle on the right and bottom of the thumbnail. Repeat at each new link, it's a lot of work!
  8. Hello Hdoowop, In AD there is a "Chain" brush provided (bottom on the drawing). You can also draw the string as you started to do, with rounded rectangles. In my example I represented the white links with rounded rectangles and the red ones with a line of the same thickness. I simply positioned the red links on the white links to simulate their nesting.
  9. Hello R-C-R, Yes, I have created only two types of stripes as an example, but as you can imagine, the choice is much wider, just for lines the spacing and orientation can vary, and the pattern can be of another kind: circles, crosses, tree or bush patterns, stones, etc..... This method is not as practical as a dedicated tool, nor as fast since you have to create the pattern before using it, but while waiting for this tool (if it comes one day), these patterns are reusable at will and remain vectorial.
  10. Hello orjwid, After drawing the curve that crosses the shape, keep the selected curve, "Layer", "Expand Stroke". Then select the shape and the curve and do a Boolean operation "Divide". The curve is then divided into three parts: two outside the shape and one inside. Delete these three parts. The shape is now cut in half.
  11. Hello, Why not create the different hatches and save them as "Assets"? It is then enough to insert them inside the different shapes.
  12. Hello Kartoffelsalat, Select the lower text, go to the "Character" tab of the studio, choose "Positioning and Transform" and adjust the "baseline" height to bring it out of the circle.
  13. @ R C-R, I was referring to that message:
  14. Hello, R-C-R, Originally, the @MEB method was applied to one cut, so with two ellipses of different sizes and can be useful for "cylinders" with a different diameter at the top and bottom. The rectangle is actually simpler for a "perfect" cylinder.
  15. Hello nebs, You can follow the method given by @MEB, I have not found the location of the message. Draw two ellipses, one for the bottom and one for the top, connect them with two straight lines. Duplicate the ellipses, color them, position them underneath and hide them (in layers). With the "Node Tool", select the lines, "Join Curves", then "Close curve". Colour the shape so delimited. Make a Boolean operation "Add" between visible ellipses and shape. Make hidden ellipses visible and place them on top.
