  1. Well, got to play with Creative Text a little. I think I used Rust 2, and then played with the color a bit to get a kind of purple-grey for the rats. The RATCHX4 came up kind of neat. I did add shadows to the Dachshund and the Rat, but not in Creative Text. I don't quite understand how the colorization works... I can't seem to get a good royal blue for the circles -- and also couldn't get a good purple.
  2. I really like the way the ratties stand out from the backdrop. The problem with the gold and silver is that I am trying to stick with blue and purple. In canine conformation, the blue ribbon signifies a win in one's class, and a purple ribbon is the winner of the non-specialty dogs. I have installed Boltbait's latest Pack, but have not yet had a chance to play with Creative Text Pro+, because I don't remember where it IS.
  3. Ah, the two layers for a shadow, as opposed to using object => drop shadow!
  4. My base layer is white. The Dachshund is on the next layer. The blue rings are on the third layer. Badger Rat is on the fourth layer. The lettering is on the fifth layer. The Ratties are on the sixth layer. I like the effect on the Dachshund and Badger Rat. How did you do that? I like the 3D effect on the lettering, but it does kind of blur the lettering, and fades it out, as well.
  5. Pixey, I did have the rat on a separate transparent layer. What I wasn't doing was the Gaussian blur and AA before beveling. Thanks. That looks better. This is what I now have... moved the rats over a bit. This is a lower rez version.
  6. Master Harper FINALLY got his Master Barn Hunt Champion X4 title. Between Covid and sheer bad luck, the title he should have had last year this time is finally his. I always do a plaque to put on a magnet on our car for his title. The last time I brought this up, it was suggested that I go with a simple double ring (beveled) and silhouette rats (also beveled) or in some way made to stand out for the title number, as opposed to doing multiple rings like I had been doing. I can't seem to get the blue rings to bevel this time. And the rats don't stand out the
  7. BoltBait, oh, I am definitely a fan of your plug-ins. In fact, I forgot I had donated to support them, and tried to donate a second time! Yes, probably best to sort through, and see what I am actually using. While I try to figure out why OneNote won't log in so I can sync all my notes between phone, tablet and computer. An opportunity to see exactly what I need to tell Barn Hunters they need to install. I was just hoping there was an easier way. Reinstalling the world when you get a new computer is not entertaining.
  8. So my windows 10 computer finally arrived (after a 2 week detour through either FedEx warehouses or one of my neighbors). I am now "reinstalling the World" as is said. PDN is installed and a small donation monthly made. VERY obvious that I have added loads of stuff to the copy I have on the Win 7 machine. Is there an easy way to sync the two copies?
  9. Great. Thank you. I spoke with a salesman today and he's getting back to me with a quote tomorrow. Then it'll take a month or so to build -- and then I have to get the new machine up to speed. In the meantime.... I have things to do with PDN!
  10. Question: does this fix still work with Win 7 Pro? I will have a Win 10 machine soon. In fact, I planned for it last year this time. Had the money saved up, and then my husband wrecked his car. Three times. (I won't let him drive any more.) Got the money put together again, and he had medical stuff with a lousy great co-pay. I now have managed to put the funds together again, and have picked out the machine I want. Should be ordering it in a day or two. BUt I don't want to mess up my current set up with PDN.
  11. The version I have is 4.2.1. The way you are talking about is how I have always done it. Just select the old setting and type in the new. This time, when I selected 800, and started to type 2400, it dropped to 799 and would not take what I was typing in. I could tap the up arrow and get back to 800 and then further up. But I could not do it the way I normally did. I have now closed PDN and reopened it. It is now apparently behaving the way it should. Which suits me fine. But I cannot, for the life of me, figure out why the other error occurred.
  12. OK, just got back from a Barn Hunt. Booted up my computer (sorry, it's still WIn 7 Pro -- I won't do the update on IT because I have programs that, as far as I know, won't run under Win 10. As soon as I can afford to, I'll be getting a new machine. I had saved up for it and then my husband wrecked his car and we had to shell out $6000 for repairs. So I have to save up again.). Started PDN. I am apparently no longer permitted to create anything other than 800 x 600 and a resolution of 96. Or more correctly, I am not allowed to select 800 and cha
  13. Yes, I was. Which was why I asked where Boltbait's version was. I do note that you can't use selecting only the item and then flip it. You have to have an area around the item selected, also.
  14. Unless something has changed, it still flips the whole layer, even with active selection. (Verifying). Yup, even with an active selection, it flips the whole layer.
  15. Those flip the whole layer. Many times, I just want to flip a single piece of an image. Right now I am using the method I described above: I select the item, copy it to a temporary layer, then use either Flip Horizontal or Flip Vertical to get the orientation I want, then copy it back to the original layer and erase my temporary layer.
