  1. My suggestion would be to allow for editing of Compound Vector Masks without having to un-nest them first or destructively converting to curves. Sadly, the lack of this feature alone is enough to stop me from using A.Designer for any commercial work. This suggestion is to update an older request that I made which has now been put in the warehouse as I fear it may be lost to the sands of time.
  2. I already found some information here on how to preserve a Photoshop path by converting it into a vector mask. This is nice and helpful, but what to do when you do not own Photoshop to convert the path of a .psd? Make everything new? I did not found a way to workaround this problem. It would be nice if paths were automatically converted into vector mask usable in AFPhoto.
  3. I am hopelessly lost on using vector masks. I have 2 triangles that need to be woven together. I created a vector shape of one of the 3 overlap areas. Regardless of color when I drag it over the one triangle everything but that spot disappears. So I made a rectangle larger than my triangles and subtracted the vector shape of the overlap. When I drag this over the triangle it works. 1. How do I modify that mask? Say I need to move it or resize it or add the other two overlaps. 2. How can I remove the mask? 3. How can I temporarily disable the mask? 4. It seems backwards that the hole in the mask is what is masked. Is there a way to reverse this? Seems like it should be the shape I create that is the mask. The only way I have found to do any of the above is to click on the mask, cut (cmd x) the mask, paste (cmd v) the mask as a separate layer. Make my modifications. Then reattach the mask. Surely there must be a less complex way. Isn't there? Help. Every other time I have run into the need for a mask I have chickened out and done it other ways, but this time I want to learn vector masks!
