Post by Gerhard Huber » Sat 26 Nov 2016 09:29

  • New: Dynamic Filters
  • New filter: Context Blur
  • New filter: Match Colors
  • New: Circular and linear gradients now with repetition and reflection
  • New: Circular gradient now optionally elliptical
  • Gradients: Optionally with cubic interpolation
  • Placeholders: Now with extended options (save preview, bit depth of preview, transparency for Dynamic Filters)
  • New: Placeholders: "Create From Layer" command
  • New: Placeholders: "Open As Placeholder" command
  • SVG export, PDF export, PDF import: adjusted for transformed gradients
  • New: Adjustment layers, layer masks and clipping layers: can be inverted now (switch in Layer Attributes)
  • New: Layer List with "Find" command
  • New: Browse: custom sorting
  • New Display mode for documents: PDF Proof Mode
  • New Display mode for documents: Pattern Mode
  • New: Vectorial fill patterns
  • New: Patterns can now be transformed in the document window
  • New spell checker on Windows 10: Support of the native Windows 10 spell checker
  • New: Layer List: "Protect Content" switch
  • New: Layer Attributes of image layers: adjustable preferred interpolation
  • New, line patterns: Start offset and aligning to corners
  • New filter: Color Lookup (better PSD compatibility)
  • New filter: Exposure (better PSD compatibility)
  • Guides: Dragging a new guide off the ruler while holding Shift, will create the guide on the active page only
  • New View commands: "Fit to Selection" and "Fit to Selection Width"
  • Document Window: If a document doesn't have the input focus, layer handles will be grayed out
  • Page List: Thumbnail is created faster
  • Dehaze, placeholders: "Dehaze" now works with placeholders
  • Mouse wheel, Windows: in modal dialogs mouse wheel events will be sent to the control at the mouse position
  • Tiled document preview: is calculated in the background
  • Tiled document preview: now with real progress view
  • Dynamic Animation: Track stack no upside-down (analogous to the Layer List)
  • Color list from Free Colours (sbz) can now be imported
  • Document gradient editor, circular gradients: will show the bounds of the gradient, center point will move the gradient
  • Gray images, assigning color: gradients are now allowed, too
  • PDF export: If images are exported, PhotoLine will now export whether they should be antialiased
  • PDF export: Problem with vector layers having several fill/line styles and transparency fixed
  • PDF export: Optionally creates clipping for bleed
  • PDF export, transparency, perspectively distorted vector layers: Transparent gradients untransformed relative to the page are now exported correctly
  • PDF export: Layers with a intensity of 0 are no longer exported
  • PDF export: Reducing the dpi value of an image layer will use the interpolation defined in the Layer Attributes
  • PDF export: Export of vector layers with perspective distortion were sometimes exported incorrectly
  • PDF export: Rendering a layer for export will create the smallest possible size
  • PDF export: Some enhancements with path effects
  • PDF export: Virtual copies to a group on a different page containing adjustment layers are now exported correctly
  • PDF export: Images with binary transparency are no longer reduced
  • PDF export: Images with binary transparency can now be overprinted
  • PDF import: Better import of ligatures
  • PDF import: Support of the color key mask
  • Non-modal color editor: Double-click will edit patterns
  • Color Management > Devices: Rendering intent removed (rendering intent is now controlled by the source)
  • New Document: Uses a color model instead of a color profile
  • Image Map > ImageMap Export: Small problems with the file selection fixed
  • Relief filter used as child adjustment layer: Non-even zoom factors created transparency
  • PSD import: Problem reading some curves adjustment layers fixed
  • Radial Blur filter: Updated
  • Printing, Windows: Before printing an image, a clipping to the bounds of the image will be set
  • Preview, Polar Coordinates: revealing the dialog preview after opening the dialog showed a wrong preview
  • Saving as JPEG with additional PLD: The PLD will now be created always
  • Rendering engine (not on-screen): Will use the preferred interpolation of images
  • Isolated groups, cache: For performance reasons caches are now created in screen quality
  • Document: Inactive documents will show more decoration elements (guides, ...)
  • Placeholders, Layer Attributes, convert to image: The placeholder automatically gets the bit depth of the embedded document
  • Placeholders, convert to image: Child layers are no longer deleted
  • Browse: Some file formats will show transparency
  • Placeholders: Can be used as layer masks/clipping layer
  • Layout > Placeholder > Edit: Saving the document of an editor placeholder will update the placeholder at once
  • Color Editor, gradients: Changing the color stops by using the menu of the color stop bar will only change the colors of the gradient
  • Color controls, gradients: Switching to a different gradient while holding Ctrl/Command will not change the gradient type
  • Color controls, patterns: Switch to a different pattern while holding Ctrl/Command will not change the transformation of the pattern
  • Automatic guides: A lot faster with many layers
  • Reduce Colors: Enhanced Octree
  • Radial Blur, Polar Coordinates: Preview problems with transparent images fixed
  • Placeholders, nested: A file-base placeholder inside an embedded placeholder didn't save the relative path correctly
  • Create Line: Potential redraw problems fixed
  • Picture Info, Lab, Byte: Using the unit "Byte" and Lab, a and b shows -1 for gray
  • Document window: The lasso will be drawn in inactive windows
  • Layer Mask > Create From Alpha: Is now disabled for images without alpha
  • Toolbar: Is now disabled with modal dialogs open
  • Gradient editor, document window: points are now correctly aligned to guides
  • Small vector layers, high zoom factor: curves could be angular
  • Zooming with Ctrl/Command+mouse wheel: sometimes didn't zoom correctly to the mouse position
  • Tint colors in Document Colors popup: Wrong output fixed
  • Color names: color names were unexpectedly delocalized
  • Adjustment layer, scaled layers: adjustment layers applied (blur) to scaled images were not applied correctly
  • Nik Sharpener Pro 3: Output Sharpener: Crash with transparent images fixed
  • Rotated images: Undo of horizontal or vertical mirroring changed position
  • Virtual copies: The virtual copies of an adjustment layer are now treated just as an adjustment layer (con be dragged onto an image layer)
  • Virtual copies: The virtual copies of a placeholder are now treated just as a placeholder (Dynamic Filters possible)
  • Coarser and Grain filter: Didn't use mask
  • Crop tool: Without a given ratio Shift+arrow key will only change width or height (not both at once)
  • Page Up/Down: Will change the active page
  • Text tool: Handle page up/down by itself
  • Glowing outside: The result was too small
  • Linear gradients: The last pixel didn't reach the end color (noticeable with small, symmetric gradient)
  • Change Channels: Copying a 1 bit image from the clipboard didn't work correctly
  • Create Line tool: If the copy mode was "at mouse position", the resulting line was at the wrong position
  • Text Styles: The names were automatically localized and delocalized
  • Automatic alignment to pixels: Will no longer be done with aliased layers
  • Color and curve control, adjustment layers: 1. edit an adjustment layer using Adjustment Layers, 2. edit a color or curve of the adjustment layer using the modal editor, 3. close the editor of the adjustment layer with the editor open, 4. potential crash
  • Image layers: Transparent image layers can be assigned a color
  • Blend modes, macOS: Are updated while the popup is open
  • Image with assigned color: Converting to gray or 1 bit will keep the color
  • Cannel List: Viewing only a spot color didn't work
