  1. Is it a bug or intentional? Every time to select a different brush, your storke with gets reset, making it a pain to check the look of individual brushes, as they mess up the object you're trying to apply the brush to. This just in... Helmar
  2. If you drag an object underneath another one (subordinating it), it will be used as a fill layer to the the parent. My question is: why can't this also be applied to the stroke? Or am I missing something here? Helmar
  3. Title says it all. Google PageSpeed is recommending the use of these formats, but AP doesn't support any of them. Please, if possible, do.
  4. @MEB Can you perhaps tell me what is the best way to turn a luminosity layer into an alpha mask?
  5. Hi MEB, I know my response won't be appropriate, but the subject is more than 4 years old now, so I'm not sure where "time" comes in. WRT resources, can you put a handle on it in terms of man-hours and Euros? If you can, and if getting the right programmers is not a problem, then why not crowdfund the baby? I am sure the money will come in fast, so that you can allocate resources to it. You know, where's a will, there's a way, and even if you charge 30 Euros for this feature alone, it will be taken up in a heartbeat, because it allows lots of PS users to finally cancel their subscription. Re: embedded objects. No, not yet. Will check out the video right away. Cheers, Helmar
  6. @MEB - valid point. Any response? And if you "struggle" to read PSD files, then why not create your own smart objects functionality, allowing 3rd party developers to create templates and mockups in .afdesign format. Cheers, Helmar
  7. I do. Uploading it to the same Dropbox address as we speak..
  8. Please look at the two screenshots. The left one is the design as laid out in AD, and the right one is the one after the PDF export. You'll notice that the dotted line is messed up. Please investigate and fix. Thanks so much, guys! Helmar
  9. Done as per your request. If you'd like to order one, just let me know. :-D :-D
  10. "Fixed" it. I had the stroke dash set to 0 2 0 1, and when I took the 1 out and set it to 0 2 0 0, it exported correctly.
  11. Convert to curves makes no difference. PDF still messed up. :-)
  12. Hi MEB, yes, please do (upload link), and thanks for the conversion hint. Cheers, Helmar
  13. +1 on this one. Definitely great for anyone working with web graphics / mockups / product shots etc.
  14. I +1 this one, because Google PageSpeed is asking for.... "JPEG 2000, JPEG XR, and WebP" and penalises you if you use plain JPG or PNG. Cheers, Helmar

    Print book layout

    +1, definitely.
  16. One thing that keeps popping into my mind is this: There are tons of title plugins for FCPX/Premiere, but they are only usable within said application(s). For things like Youtube cover pic graphics, social media graphics etc it would be "strange" to create those within FCPX or Premiere with its "timeline" layout. For that one should use Designer, which is document-centric. Long story short: it would be absolutely "KILLER" if Designer was able to utilise those plugins in a static document environment. Over to you, guys, and for all those sympathizing with me, please leave a comment or a "bump". Thank you! Helmar
  17. Greetz, MEB! Really any that you would find on graphicriver.net or from more dedicated FCPX "developers" like www.motionvfx.com, fxfactory.com or pixelfilmstudios.com. And no, they aren't jusr basic image filters, but scripts that allow for the modification of numerous parameters, even in 3D space. Cheers, Helmar PS: Sample shown below.

  19. Bump. Especially EAN-13 codes for books. :-)
  20. Here's my take: I have been using ID for over 10 years now. Just as Adobe reminded me of their annual $$$ subscription, I looked at Serif for my manna, and I found it. I was so delighted to see the Publisher Beta being available. I quickly downloaded and installed it, played around and tested it. Found some features still lacking (hence beta), but overall I am very delighted. The issue with INDD and IDML import is a transitory one. IDML will be easier to handle than INDD. BUT... only for a short time. Then you will find yourself creating more and more in Publisher, until Indesign is a relict of the past in your cranial cavity. It's been like this before. When I moved from Windows to Mac, I sorely missed Editplus and Total Commander. Now I am very happy with BBEdit and Forklift/Crax Commander. Are they identical? No, but you get used to. I had a really good look at Publisher, and bar a few things, it does everything that 90% of the people who use Indesign do. Give it some time, and this figure will be closer to 100%. I for one cannot wait, and even if they only charge 50 Euro for the thingy, I will send them at least 300. Why? Because they deserve every bit of it. And the awesome thing is that it will NOT HAVE TO integrate with Photoshop or Illustrator, because all that functionality is available right from within the app, thanks to Photo and Designer. So there. Vote with your money. Send it to them now, while they are still developing. Help spread the word. That will be worth its weight in gold - for us all. And as for Adobe, don't pay attention to them. Just don't. Cheers, Helmar
