  1. Yes, it's an acknowledged bug that arrived in a beta several months ago. It works ok if there's no unit specifier such as px in the division expression, or if there is another operator before the unit specifier, or if the division is enclosed in parentheses before the unit specifier. For example: 100/3 px will fail 100/3 is ok 100/3*1 px is ok (100/3) px is ok
  2. One way is to select the two objects and use the Alignment popup to vertically space them by a specified distance.
  3. Yes, just press shift-alt-ctrl-e (Windows) or shift-opt-cmd-e (Mac) to create a Pixel layer that's a merge of all the visible layers at 100% scale, and then export at any size. Tip 1: ensure no layer is selected, or only the top layer is selected, before doing the merge so that the result is placed at the top of the layer stack. Tip 2: group all layers before doing the merge, and then hide the group after the merge to prevent the software redundantly compositing the layers that are now occluded by the merge result. That redundant compositing wouldn't be significant for your example, but live filters and fx can significantly degrade the app's performance.
  4. The slice is including the subtle shadow effect.
  5. I'm sure you meant to write 1.7x The histogram is still squeezed to the left in 1.7.x if the output format setting is 32 bpc in Develop Assistant before the raw file is opened. That's because the histogram is for the image that will become available in Photo persona; the histogram of a 32 bpc image is based on linear values, whereas the histogram of a 16 bpc image is based on gamma-adjusted values.
  6. The nuclear option It wipes out all brushes that the user has added and resets all factory brushes. Not a reasonable solution to the problem stated in my previous post.
  7. The issue involves the PPI of your document being a multiple of 72. The Export persona is assuming that your 144 PPI document is an @2x version of the artwork and so it renders a 50% scaled version to represent @1x size. Workaround/solution: before entering Export persona, change the document PPI without resampling to 72 (or some number that is not a multiple of 72).
  8. But if you adjust settings for brush A and then select brush B and then return to brush A, the Reset button does not reset brush A.
  9. The green Rounded Rectangle (and an identically sized black one behind it) has Absolute Sizes enabled in the context toolbar of the Node Tool and, therefore, the corner radius remains at 10 pixels when the object is scaled by re-sizing the document. If you disable Absolute Sizes, then the radius is specified as a percentage of the object size and it will continue to be 50% when the object is scaled by re-sizing the document. The large black shape (and an identically sized grey one behind it) is a Curve, not a Rounded Rectangle. It has no corner attributes and, therefore, the rounded appearance does not change when the object is scaled by re-sizing the document. The large black shape was not "smashed vertically" when the document was resized. The view did not contain the right hand end of the document initially, and then the entire document was displayed after the resizing.
  10. While the shape is mask-nested in something, you won't be able to boolean subtract another shape from it. Release the masking shape from its parent object, do the boolean operation and then re-mask with the resulting shape. Note that non-destructive boolean operations can be performed by holding down alt key when issuing the operation command (by toolbar button or menu item).
  11. Intaglio Vectorize is free: http://www.purgatorydesign.com/Vectorize/index.html (You were given a link to the drawing app Intaglio.)
  12. Why didn't you just use a centre-aligned stroke and avoid using a coverage adjustment that creates a new problem (jaggy outer edges) while hiding a problem (blending of antialiased interior edges)?
  13. The grid or filmstrip displays the JPEG previews that are embedded in the raw files, but the main display is rendered from raw. It typically renders a 24 megapixel raw in about a tenth of a second on my machine.
