Brilliant, what a welcome revelation, thank so much! So simple ... once you know. ;-)

Re: Quick reminder please!

Thanks. I’d prefer to leave aside the alignment aspects, which I have no problem with. (PSP 8 uses Rulers, horizontal and/or vertical, as well as guides.) I’m looking for something as close to PSP 8’s procedure as possible: 1. Click at the intended location. 2. Type (or paste) the string of text I h...

Quick reminder please!

Now I remember the chief reason I reverted to using my ancient PSP 8 instead of PSP 2018 a couple of years ago. The exasperation I had when trying to add text! But I need to use 2018 right now to add names to photographs (because I also need rulers, and PSP 8 crashes whenever I dare to move one afte...

Re: Digitising a line

Some of the background that I'd intended here we've now covered in the parallel thread https://forum.corel.com/viewtopic.php?f=56&t=67962&p=385136#p385136 (Note that I make the majority of my track animations in an entirely different way, capitalising on GPS. I import a GPX into Google Earth and use...

Re: Reveal technique not working in PSP 2018

EDIT: Additional testing, (after resetting PSP because the eraser wasn't acting right) shows that if you have the eraser tool active when you hit Clear you can un-erase it. But if you clear the layer before selecting the eraser tool (like mentioned below) the transparency will become permanent and ...

Re: Reveal technique not working in PSP 2018

Works with PSP 8, works with 2020, works with 2021 .... just not 2018? My hunch remains that I probably have something set wrongly, affecting Edit > Clear.

EDIT: Posted the above before seeing your reply Levi!
Also, presumably my PSP 8 method does work OK for you too in 2020 and 2021?

Re: Reveal technique not working in PSP 2018

I'm not sure why it isn't working in PSP 2018, Terry. I just tested it in 2020 and 2021 and it works. Maybe your video recording program screws things up? It's not unusual. I wasn't running any video recording program. You can also try resetting the brush settings: http://prntscr.com/xxl39u (maybe ...

Reveal technique not working in PSP 2018

There's a technique I learned many years ago and have been using successfully ever since in PSP 8. But it doesn't work in PSP 2018. I've shown the details in a short video. But the bottom line is that the Edit > Clear command in PSP 2018 removes the entire layer, unlike the behaviour in PSP 8. I sti...

Re: Deleted layer but entry still in Layer palette

Thanks @migf1. It goes a bit further than before using Apply, but the layer still remains. My puzzlement has gone now that I know it's by design, i.e. in anticipation that the vector layer will probably be needed again.

Re: Digitising a line

Pleased to report that I've mastered how to make a curved vector line, based on your tutorial. But I'm very slow! https://www.dropbox.com/s/bwgqq24nr3eh5pm/VectorLineProgress.jpg?raw=1 And there would still be several more steps before I get the finished animation I want. This new vector pen skill w...

Deleted layer but entry still in Layer palette

I use the Pen tool on the raster image and it creates a vector layer. With that selected I click the Delete (bin) icon, bottom right. That deletes the content of the layer (the two blue lines), but why does the entry remain in the Layer palette? https://www.dropbox.com/s/ubtkbsj9k8d3o5i/LayerEntryRe...

Impatience got the better of me so just taken quick look at your very helpful videos on my PC, than you. Will study properly tomorrow. EDIT, Saturday 30 January 2021, 1625: If you saw it, ignore my previous request for a higher res screenshot. I must have been playing it incorrectly, because I can n...

Re: Digitising a line

Thanks a lot Levi, really appreciate your work on this. I’ll have to view them in the morning when I get back to my PC because unfortunately for some reason neither of them will play on my iPad.
