  1. The attached screenshot is of 3 “Donut” shapes created on Publisher 2 for iPad, while in Publisher persona. While I can easily make successive donuts snap one inside the other so that the outside of one falls exactly on the inside of the one around it. Are there tools to ensure that all of the donuts has the same width as the others? I can do it by eye, or I could make a little box of x-width to use as a standard, but I’m hoping there’s a tool in the software that make short and accurate work of this little task. Thank you
  2. Walt; While you and I as humans would say that the N95 photo is of a "white" mask, if that image were truly white, we wouldn't see anything but white. But in fact we see colors or tones that are not white - albeit very close to white. Not as colorful as a photo of an amazon parrot, but it is an RGB image and I'd think that Photo could change whatever pixels are there. Perhaps vibrant colors are required for the "Color Replacement Brush" to truly shine. If I look very closely, I can see a color of my choosing being imparted, but it's faint, probably because, as you intimated, it isn't a colorful enough image from the software's point of view..too many tones for which the R, G and B are pretty close to each other. Just thinking out loud here.. maybe PaulEC's suggestion to use the regular brush in Multiply will get me where I need to go.
  3. I can make a selection and save it to a spare channel, but I don't have a blues clue as to how to turn a selection back on after it's been deselected, so that I can use that selection to paint / modify inside or outside of that selection. Is "marching ants" still a term? Thank you
  4. I created a new pixel layer, tried to paint but could not. it looks as though I'm uncovering something else tho...I appear to be thoroughly in the weeds with how Photo 2 handles painting. I checked channels and nothing appears to be blocking me. Am I missing something obvious? Oughtn't we be able to paint on a new layer? Thank you
  5. Hi, Walt; I tried your experiment but nothing happened. Should it have? thank you
  6. The attached image appears to fulfill the requirements of the color replacement brush, but I can not do any actual color replacing as I can in other images. Is there something about this image that prevents the color replacement brush from working on it? Thank you
  7. I'm trying to isolate an N95 mask. I've made a selection using the Selection Brush Tool, but now I can't seem to get 2 things to happen at the same time: 1. Show the marching ants, AND 2. Show the full artwork - all channels at the same time. Screen capture shows where I'm at so far. Trying to shrink my selection by a pixel or two, then hit Delete to rid the small amount of dark background that remains after having made my initial selection. Thank you for any clues.
  8. DWright; thank you but this does not work for me. While I can select the image on its layer, I am unable to rotate the image within its box; I can only rotate the containing box. Double-tapping the image doesn’t help. Is there an additional bit needed to facilitate rotating an image independent of its containing box? thank you
  9. Good morning and thank you, Walt; I’ve posted both the file and a screen movie of what I did in that file. For some reason it appears that a master page element is affected by my adjustment as opposed to just the one, single item (an image of a sunny sky). Is there a way to instruct Publisher / Photo persona to adjust only the desired, selected item, and no other items? Thank you cant adjust single item.mp4 cant color adjust one item only.afpub
  10. Is there a way to rotate the contents of an image box without rotating the box itself? Everything I’ve tried only lets me rotate the box, contents and all. thank you!
  11. Walt, thank you. I’m doing just as you did. Decided to reboot iPad, and I was able to adjust one single item in a different document but not in the one where I took a screen movie. Is there something about a page which could lead photo persona to treat the entire page as a unit, for photo adjusting purposes?
  12. my goal is to adjust the color of the image at the top. when I try, after switching to Photo Persona, and selecting the object I want to adjust, the entire page gets adjusted. Is there a way to adjust only the desired object? Screen movie attached. Thank you. curves adjust whole layer.mp4
  13. Can either Designer or Publisher be used to build an email newsletter? Thank you
  14. I don’t see a prefs setting that controls this. Is there a way to shut off the blue discs while drawing? I sure hope so..distracting and interfering. Thank you
  15. I can't seem to find an option for this..does Publisher have the ability to explort XML? thank you
  16. Excellent tip, NotMyFault…I shall incorporate that into my workflow. Thank you
  17. Screen Video shows what I did. Image is an apple surrounded by white. I selected all the white, and the selection appears to be selecting just the white, but when I hit delete, the entire image is evacuated, as though there was no selection made, and that Designer didn’t know what the selection means. Is there a way to select all the white (or whatever) and then, using one key, and not having to use the eraser, delete what’s selected, leaving what’s not selected behind? Thank you selection fail.MP4
  18. When I draw with the pen tool in the Designer persona, I can’t get points to snap to angle so that for example, two points would snap to horizontal axis. Is there a way to do this? Edit: Found it. Snap to Geometry under the menu with the magnet icon.
  19. When moving an object relative to others, you see those small spacing numbers which help you see distance and balance one side to the other. Is it possible to make those numbers linger just a bit longer? This may sound weird, but in the time it takes me to move my eyeballs from one number to it’s other-side counterpart, the numbers disappear or time out. Such useful information! Thank you
