  1. Some people say you're as old as you feel. The trouble is, by that reckoning I'm ancient!
  2. That's very odd, John! I get a choice between 'Cancel' and 'Save', as you would expect.
  3. Alternatively, conceal the gap by curving one of the 'join' lines with the Node Tool to make it overlap the other one.
  4. You should have no problem catching some good waves.

      LOL. You can blame @R C-R for that: he was the one who drew my attention to the fact that you can upload an animated GIF to be used as a header image for your profile page.

      That's a nice showcase you've put together for yours!

      Why thank you. I've been working on the website for a couple years now.

       

      And hey, I didn't know you could upload an animated GIF. I may have to take advantage of that in the some time future.

  5. This was mentioned as a feature that would be lost with the upgrade. It won't be coming back, as far as I'm aware.
  6. Halftoning effectively blurs the edges of line art. A printer (imagesetter) has a fixed resolution. All it actually print is printer spots of the same size. Printer spots are the actual hardware resolution of the imagesetter (typically 3000 or more spots per inch). Halftone dots are made up of printer spots..Each dot in a halftone is a collection of printer spots, trying to simulate a circle..The number of different circle sizes possible is therefore determined by the number of printer spots available to simulate them. Divide the number of available printer spots (SPI) by the halftone ruling (LPI), and that's the theoretical number of different-size halftone dots (levels of grey) the device can print. That's why you always get more banding from, say, a 600 SPI laser printer than you do from a 3000 SPI imagesetter. Everything in a greyscale image gets halftoned. That means the raster is printed as halftone dots, at the line ruling of the halftone screen (typically 150 lines per inch). It also becomes effectively anti-aliased by the halftoning.process.That's why black text that is part of a raster image looks fuzzy compared to black vector text stacked in front of a raster image. 1 bit raster objects do not get halftoned at all. They are simply "filled in" with tiny printer spots. So it's common practice to, for example, create or scan line art (think of the inking of a comic book illustration) as 1-bit rasters at something like 1200 PPI, which overlay grayscale or full color raster images. The color artwork prints as 1/150th inch halftone dots. But the 1-bit raster actually prints as 1/1200th-inch squares, giving a crisp, sharp-edged, aliased (not anti-aliased) appearance. JET Thanks for the comprehensive reply, JET!
  7. I think the answer to the question is "nothing" rather than "no".
  8. I cannot confirm this. I made a 4:3 'Custom Ratio' crop and added it as a preset named 4" x 3". When I drag a side adjustment handle the aspect ratio is maintained and the Mode box on the Context toolbar still says 4" x 3"; if I choose one of the supplied 'Absolute Dimensions' presets such as 6" x 4" and drag a side handle, the aspect ratio is not maintained and the Mode box text changes to 'Absolute Dimensions'.
  9. With the UI language set to 'English (United Kingdom)', the Colour panel is correctly labelled but the dropdown list of categories in the Swatches panel offers a choice between 'Grays', 'Colors' and 'Gradients' instead of 'Greys', 'Colours' and 'Gradients'.
  10. Let me try again. I hope there are not so many errors in translation that you will not have enough time to check other corrections! Гугл переводчик: Дай мне попробовать снова. Я надеюсь, что ошибок перевода не так много, что вы останетесь без достаточного количества времени, чтобы проверить другие исправления!
  11. That's a good point. :( Let's hope they fix that soon!
  12. Your %AppData%\Affinity\Designer\1.0 folder (or %AppData%\Affinity\Designer\1.0 (Beta) for the beta releases) contains a user subfolder in which you'll find a 'raster_brushes.propcol' file for the raster brushes and a 'vector_brushes.propcol' for the vector brushes. All of your imported brushes are lumped together in those two files, which may not be particularly helpful if you only want to delete a few carefully chosen categories.
  13. I hope it doesn't keep you so busy reporting translation errors that you don't have time to test the other fixes!
  14. Yes, I understood what you were getting at. All I was trying to emphasize is that the "tiers" are for different base prices, not for different countries: a Tier 50 product retailing in the US at $49.99 doesn't become a Tier 550 product in Norway just because its price there is 549 kr.
