Ah, that makes sense. One question related to patterns that has been bugging me for a while: what is the easiest method to edit the contents of an existing pattern? "Edit" allows us to make changes to the overall transformation, scaling, etc., but there seems to be no easy way to just "open" the contents of a pattern, and change it.Martin Huber wrote:Your pattern is using hair lines.

Open the attached file.
1) double-click on the fill colour either in the layer properties or the toolbox to open the Color Editor.
2) Change the 91px size to 90px or lower.
Result: the stroke width of the vector fill changes.
Secondly, currently patterns, gradients, and textures remain unlinked when applied to an object by creating a layer style preset. The same is true for the list panels. Meaning: I apply a pattern, a gradient, a texture, or a layer style (extended list panel) by clicking on a preset in one of the list panels. Suppose I have 10 objects making use of that same pattern. When I make a change to the original preset in the list panel, the 10 objects do not update.
Now, sometimes this is a wanted behaviour. But often it would be extremely useful to have an option to update the original style, and then have all objects making use of that style update automatically. Similar to the document colours, we would be able to create object styles.
These are the two main things still missing in Photoline to simplify the workflow for print layouts, web design, game layouts, mobile screen layouts:
1) an item library (similar to the shape/outline/clipart lists) which keeps the reference between the instances on the canvas and the original object in the library. When the library item is changes, all instances in the document(s) are updated as well. A method to override specific items (break the link) should be possible. The library panel should be available to all documents, not just one. One change to an object in the library changes all the instances in all documents.
2) like document colours and text styles, a way to have patterns, textures, gradients, and layer styles to update in your document when the original preset is changed. An "object styles" list panel, for example.
