    ShapeMaker Mini Tutorial

    Really nice of you to do, Lynxster4. Very nice of you. I'm sure it will be helpful to many.

    GeoGraphics by AndrewDavid

    These are fantastic and beautiful. I'm also a watercolor/acrylic artist and I'm going to use some of these in various ways. Thank you for taking the time to make them.

    Fibonacci Numbers

    I really enjoyed learning about these number patterns and the many things it relates to. I was just wondering, since math is a large part of making plugins, or used in coordination with aspects of plugins or PDN, has anyone been able to use those patterns for making a plugin? Is that even possible? Out of some of the videos I watched about Fibonacci numbers, this video might be enjoyed by some:

    What have I missed out on?

    Hi, Xephyr! Sounds like you've done really well on an older, outdated version of PDN, which, as we know, still will do many amazing things. It also sounds like you're pretty creative and talented to be using PDN with not many plugins, figuring out how to do a range of things. Why not share some of that when you have the time. That, in itself, sounds pretty cool! Go to the "Plugins" link of the forum: Enjoy getting lost in there. Seeing what you've been missing out on. Another link on the forum would be for the newer version of PDN, to use a plugin called ShapeMaker. Some shapes users have made with ShapeMaker are shared at this link of the forum: I hope you continue to find more amazing things to do with PDN. It's a pretty cool software.

    Hi, Pixey. Great to see you, too. Congrats on the grand baby...I think that was not an old post. I feel silly. I didn't catch the folder option at top left....duh. Thank you. So, we can potentially create our own custom ppl, dogs, objects? What's the language or whatever to learn how to do that? Is there a link for that info? If we can conquer ShapeMaker, I'm thinking "Stick Being" might be something to explore... Thanks.

    That was so incredibly nice of you. Thank you so much! Do I just put the new guy into the effects folder? Drag him onto the little stick man plugin window?...Should I talk to him about this?

    Thank you. This might come in handy for a number of instructors and trainers....PS, and a slider to opt to make the little guy's head smaller? I really love this plugin! It's awesome for some things I do....(You guy's spoil us with your plugins and such!)

    Do you think stick man can be remade...or Stick Man II with maybe 2 or 3 fingers on each hand and adding simple feet, too? To use them in an easily created diagram for yoga and tai chi poses, as well as other work out routines/poses, but with these it helps to show if one or both hands are pointing up, straight, down, etc...same with a simple foot (toes forward, down, up, this ). Just a thought. That's a great little plugin. Thanks for making it.

    Norton blocking

    I just wanted to add this exact situation has been going on with me, recently, too. I ignore it. This was "out of the blue". Just like over a year ago Norton flagged the entire PDN program as "RED ALERT" when I tried using it. A new computer later, installing Norton and it doesn't even flag PDN when I try to use it, for whatever reason, but it just says every page on this forum is "DANGEROUS", which JUST started happening. It use to flag older plugins. I just tell it to ignore the plugin, especially when it's from one of the developers who've been around for awhile. I know if there was a major cootie, it would have been discovered by those with far more advanced computer skills than mine. I'll keep Norton and continue to use it. I had an issue with Windows Defender so I went back to Norton. I just let Norton know who's boss. I guess one cannot if they are on a particular business computer with Norton. Sometimes Norton gets a little too excited and spastic---then it calms back down again. So, I won't tell you just to uninstall or delete Norton, or which virus protector to use or not use. I use Norton, too. I will just share with you that I am seasoned with some of Norton's false fear alerts and either set Norton to stop flagging something or ignore a Norton fear alert. Not always, naturally, but in this case, for sure, I ignore it. If in doubt of a various plugin, and if you don't use the plugin all that often, maybe deleting/uninstalling it, but keeping it in a file to later use or use if there is a need would be a solution to bring piece of mind?

    Barcode v1.5 (July 3, 2018)

    Anymore thought to creating a QR code plugin?
  12. Ahhh...I was looking under "S" instead of "D" in "effects" bad. (I have many effects in that file folder). I still have the dll file for the prior version, but thank you for offering it. Appreciated.... Sorry to alarm you if I did. You are excellent at what you do and you've made some very cool and helpful other plugins. I'm going to try to do a few more functions with SM now that I'm not in a rush, switching back and forth the versions, and make sure. It's really nice to be able to zoom in much closer. I love the glowing of the active line being used. I didn't want to make a big deal or alarm you about anything that's why I just wanted to know how to uninstall the newest version until I was certain. Thank you for the quick response.
  13. I just added 3 shape packs. I did all of them with the prior updated version of ShapeMaker but when adding one more shape to one of my shape packs, before wrapping all of my shape packs up I installed the latest version of ShapeMaker and I noticed it's not doing a function it did for me in the prior version. So, I wanted to know how to uninstall the latest version of ShapeMaker, which I thought ran smoother but was installed with an .exe installer, and just re-install the prior version, which appears to have been a .dll file. I've looked in all yellow files within the pdn file systems and can't seem to locate that particular plugin to remove it. Thanks.

    MXI's Shapes (photo grids, measurements) UPD:2017.04.03

    Hey, thanks a lot!
  15. OK, your initial post made it seem as if you were angry that I labeled a shape pack a shape pack. I thought of a file being packed into a zip file as packed in. Since this is a forum, where people come and go and cannot always spend lengthy amount of time here, at least not everyone, I realize some communication issues can arise. Did you want me to discontinue naming my shapes as a "pack"? I am sorry for the anger and frustration doing so has caused you. That was not my intention. I read the rules, all 4 of them, and there was nothing about the preference of how to name shape packs and if it only has one or two shapes to not call it a pack. Now you are selectively singling me out for a rule violation? I read all 4 of them: Rules 1) This forum is for users of to share their custom shapes.*****This is what I was doing but if I was not doing such in the manner you wanted, please be specific? I don't automatically assume anything. I'm also trying very hard to comply with why I am causing you so much discontentment. 2) Please limit yourself to 1 thread per person.*****Normally I would have thought that this may be your newest/second/separate reason to selectively use rule violations against me but then I saw how other people have multiple threads of various shapes they share so then I thought, well, that can't be the latest reason for causing you to have such animosity towards me when it is beyond clear and obvious that other forum users have created more than 1 thread per person. Since that was evident with other users before I even posted a shape compilation, not reading anything about it from you to the others prior to me making and adding various compilations of shapes, I then understood it as perhaps people were to only have one thread per their shape compilations of the same shapes meaning if they are adding more shapes regarding a particular shape compilation zip file just keep adding to the same shape zip file in the same thread but if it is a collection of different zip compilations then it will be far more clear and easier for those who use Paint.Net to easily find different labeled various shape compilations within a zip file and in a more organized and quicker fashion simply by easily seeing the names of shapes via each thread title, like with tutorials and plugins. Is this the rule you wish to violate me for? Using more than one thread to upload different categories shape images? Again, if so, since I am not the only one who has done that, while I have seen others who have more than one thread per person, any reasonable person would also find it understandable about the confusion of that particular rule. However, if that is the rule you are referring to, as I honestly don't know, I'm sorry. 3) Custom shapes are typically distributed as .xaml files inside of a .zip file. You may upload zip files to this forum or you may post the contents of an .xaml file in a thread (be sure to use [code] tags).*********I'm not fully sure what this means. Is it pasting the xaml file code onto the post? 4) This is not the place to request shapes. We are not here to do your work for you. However, if you've started a shape and are having trouble with it, I'm sure someone here would be happy to help.******As far as I know I have not requested people to make shapes for me, but I have asked you for help about a question I did have about ShapeMaker when you sent me to a link for programmers to decipher xml language, which I tried my best to do but am not advanced in programming or a lot of techie things. I'm just someone who uses Paint.Net for creative sentimental various things. If you don't like my shapes it's not a problem for you to just single me out and tell me so. That won't hurt my feelings. This is your forum and your shape thread to run as you wish. So, no hard feelings, my friend. If you simply hate my presence or if I somehow am a presence that you no longer want at the forum. It's ok just to simply state that. I won't have any ill will. I'll go, my friend. All I was hoping to do was to help contribute the the growth of the Paint.Net community in a good hearted, enthusiastic way, with ShapeMaker. When I ask you to help me understand things you get upset at me doing and you don't help me understand what I'm doing while remaining vague or assuming I should know everything about this forum and programming I would have to ask you to please try to be more understanding and patient for those of us who do not have an indepth understanding of technical things or lingos. I'm sorry that I have somehow brought out a lot of discontent from you towards me when I have barely interacted with you, but, clearly I have and this is your forum. There are no hard feelings, my friend. Thank you for all of the very cool plugins and many cool things you have offered for Paint.Net. I know you will continue to be a treasured asset for Paint.Net's growth with your programming knowledge. God bless you and take care. If you don't want my shapes on your thread you can delete them but I'm going to leave them up in case others may enjoy the use of them, if that's ok. I'll leave that up to you to decide. All my best to you.
