Post by Gerhard Huber »

New
  • New functions: Layout > Text > Increase/Decrease Font Size

    • PDF import
      • Invisible OCR text is now imported.
      • Layers without function are now better removed.

    • SVG import
      • Improved import of text.
      • Different language versions are read correctly.
      • CSS styles are read better.
    • SVG export
      • Simple groups are optimized.

    • WebP export: With optional conversion to YUV.
    • ICNS import: Has been updated for macOS 11 icons.
  • Menu functions/filters
    • Adjustment layers: The "normal" functions like "Tool > Curves" now create adjustment layers for all layer types except image.

    • "Edit > Find" and "Edit > Find/Replace": You can now enter return/tab/... and search for them.
    • Change Layer Size, Change Document Size: Both functions now have presets.
    • Optimize HDR
      • Optionally, the brightness of dark parts of the image remains unchanged.
      • A histogram is also displayed for 8- and 16-bit images.
  • User interface
    • Font list: Preselection with the mouse triggers a preview in the document.
    • Font list: If the font list is not opened by clicking on the arrow, but with the right mouse button, no entry of the last used fonts is selected.
    • Brush and color fields: If multiple layers or a file with multiple layers are dragged onto the field, all layers will now be used.
    • Gradient editor, inside document or in the Tool Settings: The context menu of the color fields now also contains the color editor.
    • Text completion in dialogs (e.g. "Layout > Dokument Information"): If the completion list was opened with the arrow down key, entries can be deleted with Delete/Backspace.
    • Context Help, macOS: The context help (in the menu under "Help > Context help") can now also be used for menu commands.
    • File dialog, Windows: If possible, the Window 10 file dialog is used.

    • Undo overlay: The display of the executed undo/redo step over the document window can be turned off (in the settings under "Working > Undo").

    • Settings "Display > Document": The border colors can now be partially transparent.
    • Lists: For texts, a tooltip is now only displayed if the text is not completely visible.
    • Brush list, files: Brush files can be dragged onto the brush list. Before only layers/documents worked. Brush files had to be dragged onto PhotoLine itself.
    • Sliders
      • Snap better to even values.
      • With Ctrl (Windows) or Command (macOS) they have ten times the step size.
  • Scripting
    • Windows: Better Powershell support.
    • Vector: Clipping mode is supported.
    • New documents can be created directly from the clipboard.
  • Miscellaneous
    • Circular and radial gradient are displayed faster.
    • Vector output is faster in some areas.
    • Brush outline inside documents: For brushes based on images, the outline is now optimized with a variable tolerance, and small outline speckles are deleted.

Bug Fixes
  • Filter > Digital Camera > Color Shift: The layer's ICC profile is used for conversion.
  • Layout > Text > Text on Path: Calling again after aborting the first time showed an empty path.
  • Tool > Color > Color to Transparency: Picking a color from the document did not recalculate the histogram.
  • Tool > Color > Color to Transparency: Transparency histogram no longer shows an error message before calculating the first histogram.
  • Tool > Curves: After switching from HIS to RGB, the available curve modes were not adjusted.

  • Layer List: Click on active layer reduced it visually a selected one only.
  • Layer List, two screens, macOS: If the secondary screen was docked to the left of the main screen and the layer list was docked to the right of the secondary screen, the name of a layer could not be changed properly because the text input field was not visible.

In the last betas the layer tool introduced the option to move the pixel selection - but that seems to have been removed in this release?

This super useful option has already become part of my daily workflow in PhotoLine. I have reinstalled the beta.

It´s really nice that now we can edit all layers with the Water Tool and others. Also, I'm a huge user of the Liquify tool and now this feature is working so perfectly for me! Still checking out every item from this huge uptade but I can tell that Photoline has become the best software for editing and compositing to me. It is clear that you guys behind PL do a real good job!
