UncleMonkey posted a topic in (Pre 1.7) MacOS resolved threadsI've tried to create the equivalent of a vector pattern fill for text by using Paste Inside to fill characters with parallel lines. I've followed the very simple instructions in Designer Help: Create the lines Select them Cut them Select the target character(s) or curves made by converting Choose Edit > Paste Inside This worked one single time, when I was just dabbling to see if I wanted to go this way. Since then, it hasn't worked at all: with lines grouped or ungrouped; cut or copied; targetting text with or without fill, curves made by converting text, or objects drawn directly. What usually happens is that The lines disappear when I cut them The target shape shows a selection box when I select it; Paste Inside deletes the selection box, and the cut lines reappear where they came from, only to disappear if I click elsewhere, while the Layers panel now shows the lines or group of lines as a sub-layer of the target; they continue to show there if I Edit in Photo, but you can't see them in any view of the document sometimes Print > PDF will show the lines where they began; sometimes they disappear What doesn't happen is lines appearing inside my text or other object. Could this be a layer-displaying problem connected with the way the UI appears on top of system dialogs? Any help greatly appreciated! AD Paste Inside shot 5.pdf
