  1. Thank you SO MUCH for your quick response. Man, I was pulling out my hair. I confirm that it as an image layer, and it changed to a pixel layer after rasterizing. It then allowed me to delete selections as I would normally expect.
  2. Okay this is ridiculous. Maybe I'm using it wrong. So in my document, I have a layer from a scan. I'm trying to crop off the edges, so with the layer selected, I use the marquee tool to select an area. I press (fn + backspace) on my macbook (which is equivalent to the del key), and the whole layer gets deleted!! What the hell??
  3. Thanks guys. Rotation was 0º and aligned was ticked at least during that second time when it was successful. I'll keep this in mind for future references. Cheers.
  4. Hmm no I don't see any options that is obvious. However I had to reopen the document and to my shock, it works as expected. No more curly erratic and unpredictable cloning reference. Very weird. Bug?
  5. Okay, so I have a general concept about what it does, but I can't really follow or appreciate its behaviour. When I press alt, and select a spot to clone, and as I drag the cursor to clone an entire sweep, how come it doesn't follow the trajectory of my cursor movement? So say, I want to clone an entire horizontal line about 50 px above. I hold alt, and select the start of the line from the left. I then release alt, and place my mouse where to start, and start dragging in a straight line towards the right. The crosshair indicating where it's cloning, rather than following the straight line per my mouse movement, starts dropping (note, my cursor is NOT drooping), to the extent that it actually CROSSES over my cursor from the top to the bottom. I don't understand it. Why doesn't it just follow the direction that I'm headed? I can't find any logic in the tool's behaviour. Am I using it wrong or is there an option that I should select that I don't know of? Cheers.
  6. Okay, I cannot use some custom brushes on AP with the current state of things. Trying to use some "light ray" effects which is essentially a brush pointed downwards in the default position. The rotation slider allows me to vary a percentage of rotation (srsly, wtf? Percentage?! How about angle in degrees??) Also, it appears that it only allows rotation from 0 to 50%, which corresponds to swinging the brush from 0 to 180º (in sane mathematical terminology!) So please: 1. Seriously, change the metric to degrees, guys. Maybe because I'm not an artist and more of an engineer, but percentage just isn't a logical choice! 2. Can you please allow for a 0 to 360º rotation, and perhaps even support - 360º to +360º? It's little things like these that gives a tool its design quality. I'm putting this as a bug because it's not just "bugging" me, but it's also a show stopper. I know this is a cheap tool, but I honestly wouldn't mind paying double what I paid to see something that fully works.
  7. Okay, new problem. I have a custom brush that is pointing straight down. I want to angle it like a forward slash. The rotation tool only goes from 0 to 50% (seriously, percentage?!) which translates to swinging the brush to the opposite direction. How to I put in, say a "-20%"? Doesn't seem to support negative numbers. Seriously, why only swing in one direction, and why call an angle as a percentage? Hope there's a fix for this!
  8. OMG thank you so much. Any reason why this is not shown by default? I was on the verge of ripping my hair out.
  9. I am going insane with AP tonight. For some reason, I CANNOT locate the window that shows me all the dfferent brush tips. All I get is the "Brush Selection" tool. But how do I select the freaking tips??
  10. Also, after exiting the live lighting adjustments, there seems to be no way to get back in to make further adjustments? Please tell me that I'm just not looking hard enough...
  11. Hey, you guys have got to add a level of undo on the LIve Lighting feature. I love the idea, but I've been attempting 10 times and I'm getting absolute ape-sh*t over here. What happens is, any slip of the mouse or tablet, the whole thing goes to sh*t and collapses into a straight line and I have to pretty much start over again. Please, make undo work for the last movement of those markers!!
  12. Hi, I appreciate AP's freedom when cropping, but for idiots like me, is there a way to activate some form of restrictions so that the cropping frame does not exceed the confines of the actual image? I'm sure there's a way, right?
  13. Thanks MEB. I really appreciate your honest response. Overall, I have wasted an hour of hair pulling over this; more so had you not come back to tell me that I'm chasing a carrot that didn't exist. I then went back to Photoshop and did everything I wanted in under 10 mins. Please pass this over to the development team.
  14. ... is there actually a solution to this, or is this a bug? Is it a problem with my technique? Are my expectations too high? Is there a genuine defficiency with the tool itself? I can't believe it can be so bloody hard!!
