PSP2018 Update 1 - No Tab option in Preferences!

Postby JoeB » Fri Sep 29, 2017 1:26 am

I installed the new update and now I don't have a Tab option in the Preferences pane, so it opens with the Welcome screen and I can't turn it off and have it open in the Edit screen. Anyone else have this issue?
Regards,

EDIT:
Yes, I also see the "tabs" option is missing. And have reported it to Corel. Hopefully it's just a bug they didn't notice and it's not purpose.

Okay So I have two things to help work around this, and they are both extremely annoying. First is editing either a workspace file or editing the registry directly. Since workspace files are more or less just registry scripts they are easily opened in a text editor like Notepad++.

To turn on Manage or Adjust tabs you need to edit this key with the parameters for "VisibleManage" and "VisibleAdjust"

Code: Select all
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Corel\PaintShop Pro\X10\UI Customization\EN\VisualParameters]
"Color Style"=dword:00000000
"VisableManage"=dword:00000001
"VisableAdjust"=dword:00000001


Changing VisibleManage or VisibleAdjust to 0 will make them disappear. Once edited, just load in the workspace file. I did not find a similar easy parameter for the Default Launch in the workspace file. But luckily that option is still scriptable inside PSP.

In the script below you simply set the DefaultLaunch to the number that matches the tab you want. Then run the script in Silent Mode. Once you restart PSP should open into your preferred start method.
Code: Select all
from PSPApp import *

def ScriptProperties():
    return {
        'Author': u'',
        'Copyright': u'',
        'Description': u'',
        'Host': u'PaintShop Pro',
        'Host Version': u'20.00'
        }

def Do(Environment):
    # GenPreferences
    App.Do( Environment, 'GenPreferences', {
            'DefaultLaunch': {
      #0 = Manage
      #1 = Edit Mode
      #2 = Last View
      #3 = Welcome Screen
      #4 = Adjust
                'DefaultLaunch': 1
                },
            })

I do not have that problem, but lost all references to my own folders and plugins
Saved the workspace before the update.
Others mention not being able to use View > Adjust so can't adjust own toolbar
Different computers, different bugs.
Has anyone noticed an improvement?

UPDATE: I just saw that the update has been removed from Corel's update page.

In my case the Paintbrush is broken - takes ages to start and a delay of seconds before it starts laying down colour.

One thing that I found is fixed is the issue in cascade mode of an image going full size when clicking on the border. Other things I tested are still broken.

Good work in coming up with that script LeviFiction!

And the post about the update suddenly being removed from Corel's site is good news too, because it likely means that they will be coming back as soon as possible with a fix - and hopefully for the other issues with the update now being reported.
