Mac OS:
http://www.pl32.com/beta/plx2190b3.zip


Neues:
  • Bearbeiten > Einfügen, Windows: PNG-Daten werden bevorzugt
  • BMP-Import: Absturz mit Gimp-16-Bit-BMPs behoben
  • PSD-Import: Lädt Bilder mit ungewöhnlicher Headerlänger bei Arbeitsebenen nicht
  • Bearbeiten > Suchen: Zeigte Suchergebnis nicht an
  • macOS: PhotoLine wird jetzt mit dem neuen XCode erzeugt, dadurch gab es einiges umzubauen, bitte auf Probleme achten
  • Diverse Fehlerbehebungen und kleinere Verbesserungen
New:
  • Edit > Paste, Windows: PNG data is preferred
  • BMP import: fixed crash with Gimp-16-bit BMPs
  • PSD import: didn't load images with adjustment layers having unusual header lengths
  • Edit > Search: Search result wasn't shown
  • macOS: PhotoLine is now created with a new XCode, so there was a lot to rebuild, please pay attention to problems

The new beta is much more responsive on my Mac. Things like adjusting brush size and working with curve adjustment layers are much smoother/faster.

Thanks,

Weird: trying to pan the view with the Wacom pen button set to middle mouse button causes the viewport to jump erratically. No such issues in other applications like Krita. It works fine with the middle mouse button.

I'm glad someone noticed :-) I've spent quite a bit of time on that.

We will check that.

Not sure if this is top-priority bug, but panel tabs 21.90b3 in Windows using light-interface setting have completely unreadable background:

NOTE: Black mode is NOT active. Just default setup.

While 21.50 looks like that on my Windows system:

Hi,
Besides faster, this version is much more stable on my Mac than previous versions. Very very nice!
One thing puzzles me: in a double pages document, I can't move single pages anymore. Only the two pages that are side by side.
Is this intentionally? I hope not.

No, we will change that back to the old behavior.

Crash/lock up bug:
open the attached file, try to scale up the vector layer with the right bottom transform handle.

Result: lock-up due to over-scaling. It is way too sensitive, it seems.

no problem here. Is it reproducible on your computer?

Ah, I noticed that transform from center option must be active. Then it acts up. Every single time.

Couple of observations while I am working on schematic drawings in PhotoLine:

- when rotating an object clockwise, I would expect the degree to start from 0->new degree starting from 0. Currently PhotoLine counts down from 360 degrees, however. So when I rotate clockwise by 30 degrees, the Angle in the layer properties states a 330 degrees. This seems very counter intuitive to me, and in any other design and 3d software that I am aware of, rotating an object clockwise behaves exactly opposite.

Also, adding a value wih the addition oprator (+) results in a counter-clockwise rotation, while subtraction (-) results in a clockwise rotation. It's very counter-intuitive.

So rotating an object by 30 degrees clockwise ought to say 30 degrees in the layer properties, I think. And adding 30 degrees to an existing rotational value should rotate clockwise.

- Scaling by precise values ignores the origin. Even when Centered is activated in the Layer Tool Settings, scaling via the Layer Properties (Size and Scaling parameters) ignores this setting, and always takes the right top point of the bounding box as its origin for transformation. This makes it really hard at times to work precisely. For example, it is not possible to duplicate a circle, and use the layer properties to scale the second copy from the center outwards.

Worse, when an object is already mirrored in one or more axes, it becomes completely unpredictable which corner point will be used as its point of transformation - even snapping the origin to a specific corner point is ignored by the scaling and Size properties in the Layer properties panel.

- Scaling an object with the mouse displays a small tooltip now which informs the user about the size of the object. However, it doesn't include delta parameters (absolute unit and %) which inform the user by how much the scaling has been changed! So it is only of relatively small practical value.

- Only the scaling displays a tooltip: rotation, position, skewing with the mouse do not. This seems rather inconsistent, and I would love to see tooltips for all transformations. And include the delta values in both the currently active unit and percentages.

- displaying the tooltip while transforming the origin would also be truly useful.

Finally, I wish, while editing groups of vector points, it would be possible to use transformations on groups of selected points, and have the option to select multiple bezier handle points, and transform these all at once as well.

But what I'd really like to be able to do is to simply select multiple bezier handles and move them in tandem to retain the exact shape on both sides of a shape, but that is just not possible in PhotoLine at the moment. That makes it very, very difficult and cumbersome to work more precisely with vector drawings in PhotoLine.

Line rotation bug/GUI error:
When I draw a vertical line (top to bottom) with the line tool, and snap the origin to the bottom end, it is not possible to rotate the line at the top end, because PhotoLine will only display the skew option (which makes no sense when applied to a line!).

When working with lines, it should not matter on which end the user wants to rotate it, and this inconvenient behaviour is a complete workflow stopper in certain circumstances.
