@VectorStyler Thank you for this great communication with (potential) VS users...
We know what we can expect in the short and long term. VS will be the vector drawing app that will replace all others (and all additional plugins)
I hope you will develop in the medium term a desktop publishing software associated with VS... "PageStyler" , as powerful as InDesign. It's the only Ad software I miss in my work and for my hobbyist activities.
Thanks for this roadmap !

@Ingolf said in Toggle shortcut for Greyscale display mode:
And wouldn't a histogram be of some value here?
For photographers - absolutely!
For painters and other artists - not really - as it seems that they have histogram built in the eye
Not if they need this grey scale mode, hint hint.
After all, photographers simply use a histogram to seek out the dynamics and contrast of the image too. Most programs also show the light (luminosity) distribution over the dynamic range in the histogram which gives a very good impression of the image. When you're good at histograms, you can simply work out backwards from the histogram why the image doesn't have enough punch or is too one-sided. It is not only used to check exposure.
@Pat said in Colour hex code: why is it necessary to type #?:
@VectorStyler Thank you (was wondering whether it was on purpose in VS).
It is on purpose, and I have to figure out a good solution.
The main role of this field is to be able to copy/paste hex colors, and that always comes with the # mark. But plain input should not need the # mark.
So I think the best solution would be to allow plain input without the # mark, but once confirmed, the # is added to the start.
@VectorStyler said in Clicking Artboard tool on grouped art creates new exact size artboard:
The click will not work if there is an artboard underneath.
I agree - there would need to not be an artboard underneath in order for it to work. I like the dual option of double-clicking on the unselected item to create the perfect artboard fit and also what @b77 suggested with selecting multiple items and getting artboards for each at one time
@Boldline There is a slower version of this (more steps) in VS already:
create a Grid shape (no fill, only stroke)
setup the grid parameters (columns / rows)
set a larger stroke width (for spacing)
expand stroke of the grid.
exclude the result from the other shape.
@VectorStyler Terrific! this would really be handy. In my head I was thinking it could be toggled easily by a button on the upper right corner. that way it could be easy to access. Ideally, keyboard shortcuts alone would not return it to all panels in view state. once we have three-four keyboard shortcut ability, that could be added there is space is an issue on the main UI
@VectorStyler said in New View -Option to pop out:
Bit not clear what "view in panel" produce? These views contain a document that is editable in that view. And this cannot be created in a panel.
View in tab and view in window should suffice.
That makes sense why a panel option would not work. The idea i was thinking was that it was more of a look-in rather than a full fledged editable copy and that it could sit overtop the design like panels do. so if you were working on the main design, the smaller copy could be placed wherever you wanted to view it for reference and it would not get lost behind the main open tab file.
the option to set the new view in a new window should work just fine for this - i'll just put it on a second screen. or i'll utilize the view options to place them side by side, etc...
@Boldline said in Improving Brush Presets Panel:
The brush shape selector in the contextual menu panel at the top seems to list all the brush presets - but it does not divide them up. The list could also potentially become very long the more brushes you add to the brush preset panel.
Yes, this can be a problem. I will try to improve these panels.
@mspacemedia said in Repeaters Future Add-ons:
to fill then have a best fit mode to calculate the space for each element?
This feature is not yet implemented. And it probably will come only after 1.2
Bit it is possible to arrange multiple shapes, or symbols using random positioning.
@VectorStyler said in Modifier option to manually edit/rotate the transform bounding box:
But I do not want to create too much expectations, and I will improve the 1.1 in the meanwhile continuously.
There is always some lessons to learn from recent events
What? Come on now, I was expecting a vague but trendy hype video complete with added glitches and special effects and mysterious music with a closeup of @VectorStyler 's face to be released any day now!
Seriously though, I'm as anxious as everyone here to begin testing out VS1.2 but I appreciate the honesty concerning the timetable and I'd rather skip the hype if there's nothing but fluff and no filler behind the smoke. As @Jayanta-Das mentioned, fixing existing bugs and improvement is more welcomed. I'm sure we all have a few specific bugs or functionality issues we've reported over the last few months that we'd rather see fixed as soon as possible over new features and the hype of a new big update. Speaking for myself, there are a few bugs/limitations that hamper my productivity and keep me from being able to use VS fully and without other vector software. Selfishly, I would prefer those get fixed more than any major update. lol. To his credit, @VectorStyler has been methodically fixing them.
I use VS for almost everything I do that is vector related nowadays - which is a far cry from the limited use a year and a half ago. Thank you @VectorStyler, for building VS on a solid foundation and know that we're behind you 100%
@VectorStyler said in Corner rounding algorithm:
@Igull The problem in this example with the corner is the retracted handles. If the control point overlaps the node, then the corner at that node cannot be edited.
I will try to fix this ASAP.
Didn't we have an issue with something similar earlier this year - bounding box showing when editing using the shape editor ?
