  1. Hi Meb, Thanks for your reply and for your tips. As a matter of fact I already use slices to export assets for web design projects (and they are great). But I still have the problem (not limited to web design) where I want to remove the superfluous, repeating pixels on the edges of an image. As the (or maybe just my?) artwork often blends into a background, it's not always easy to see where that boundary is. But it would be easy for an algorithm. I don't need an elaborate dialog à la Photoshop either. Just a command that trims repeating lines of the same colour (or transparency, but that already exists if I understand correctly) at the four edges of an image.
  2. I really could use a Trim command as well. Especially in web design, where you want the smallest image possible to, say, blend into a background of the same colour.

    Ah, Marmite. You either love it or you hate it… :wacko:
  4. I agree with all of the above, but I prefer the checkbox to an eye.

    Yes, I see where you're coming from, but to quote Mister Berra: “You've got to be very careful if you don't know where you're going, because you might not get there.”

    I think these guys probably really are fantastic programmers. Everything else: assumptions. It's better to release something that's almost there and then improve it (iteratively and through communicating with the users), as opposed to waiting until it's perfect and never release anything.

    I don't think it's a programmer “lead” initiative. If anything, it's a “feather” initiative. I, for what it's worth, have made quite a few suggestions that didn't fall on deaf ears but, quite the opposite, got wings and are now implemented. ;)
  8. Wow, really looking forward to that! Actually, that deserves a quote from Mister Grid himself: “The grid system is an aid, not a guarantee. It permits a number of possible uses and each designer can look for a solution appropriate to his personal style. But one must learn how to use the grid; it is an art that requires practice.” – Josef Müller-Brockmann
  9. Rui and Gear are right. Guides should always be available.
  10. I couldn't agree more. This should be enabled by default. And rather than adding another option in Preferences, I suggest one of the following 1 · saving the state on a document basis, or, probably better 2 · saving the state globally for the app, no matter what document is open. I prefer option 2. That way, once it's set, I'm good because that's the way I work.
  11. Something similar to the Transform “effect” in Illustrator, where you can specify a distance, rotation, etc., and the number of copies you want, would indeed be very useful to have.

    If you want it even more detailed, here's how you cut those nodes: 1. Draw the circle 2. Convert to Curves (by using the button in the Context Toolbar) 3. With the Node Tool (and the circle still selected), select the node at the bottom of the circle 4. Break the Curve (button in the Context Toolbar) to create two nodes (that are now in exactly the same spot) 5. Deselect the circle 6. Still with the Node Tool, select the node at the bottom of the circle again (where there really are two now) 7. Delete it 8. Take it from here
  13. Makes sense. I guess that's what you have to do once you lose the creator codes. Anyone remember those? B) Ah, good times…
