@b77 and @b77 This can be done, but it still needs a trackpad.
For those who have a touch tablet, the rotate view works with the two finger rotating gesture.
There is a Spacebar+Shift (pressed in this order) and the click and drag to rotate the view.
And Spacebar+Command click and drag to zoom.
It sounds like we're on the same page. Basically, I'd love the ability to cut a tapered stroke and have the option to not have it change it's remaining shape automatically. So if I had a stroke width selected that featured a taper at both ends, after I lay the stroke down, I could use the erase to cut it in the middle and the two resulting smaller strokes would then only have one end each still tapered and the other would be thick with a flat edge resulting from the cut.
If you're getting another cool idea that is not what I'm suggesting that is all good! But For sake of clarity I made a diagram to show what I meant:
Diagram 1 - shows how the tapered stroke reacts after being cut - this is not bad - but would love the next option I show as well.
Diagram 2 - the black circle shape is the initial stroke - the green stroke over top is the new crossover stroke. If I cut that stroke with the pencil eraser option, the red line shows what happens - it tapers at both ends adjusting to the new size. The purple line shows the alternative option for cutting that I would like to see. where both ends retain the original taper width effect where cut.
At the risk of beating a dead horse - I wanted to be sure I was clear in the first diagram - in the pic below - you see the dual tapered stroke - then part 2, shows after it's cut in two pieces, the line adjusts automatically - the third part shows the option I'd like to see
@vectoradmin cool! I like the potential. I was able to follow your directions and the video also helped.
I hope a dedicated gets added into VS at some point. Clip Studio Pro (raster app) has a good way of doing it with a symmetrical tool. Maybe it gets bundled with an advanced perspective tool?
@vectoradmin said in Improve Resolution/Image Quality and allow User Customization of Tool "Cursor" Icons:
@Vector-Rock Is this issue on Windows or on Mac? Cursor size customization can be done, but customizing cursor images would be problematic (this needs a separate UI).
I am currently using Mac.
Will likely also be using Windows as well.
@zorglup Yes of course, thank you! But there are about 17800 UI text resources, as it is not just the menu, but texts in views and tool tips. I'm not sure if partial translation would be sufficient.
Maybe these text resources could be made public in the near future. For now, the main issue is that these are frequently changed.
I wish I knew how the FreeHand engineers/coders handled the open issue challenges you describe. They worked it out somehow. Thankfully we have a wizard like you to figure it out, ha, ha
It would make for a nice addition to VectorStyler if you could make it happen. I'm confident you'll solve the puzzle and "wow" us!
@vectoradmin said in Allow the option to change the Stroke color in Docked Color Palette by Right Clicking:
@Vector-Rock Got it! The problem is the update in the Stroke ICON. The new object should be drawn with the selected stroke color.
You nailed it this time.
Build 1.0.029 RC3 (correction) now allows, from the Color Swatches Bar, with NO Selection on Artboard, Right Click to change the Stroke Color and ICON in Color Panel.
