  1. The origin of the text shouldn't make a difference. When you open up the effect, you see all the sliders? Those will control the appearance of the final image. (I usually grab the top of the effect window with my mouse and move it to the side so I can see the canvas.) Try moving the sliders for X, Y, and steps factor to see how it looks. And we've all been noobs at some point. How are you gonna learn if you don't ask?
  2. first thought, after tinkering with text a bit, is to double-check the steps factor in relation to the X/Y offsets. I accidentally lopped off the end of a letter!
  3. Well, I finally found my dead-tree copy of my favorite book (accidentally crammed it into storage when we moved). I have it on my tablet, but there's something about the smell of a book.... *happy sigh* Precious Bane by Mary Webb is the book in question. It's an unusual retelling of Cinderella, which happens to be my favorite fairy tale. It's also a good time of year to re-read Sherlock Holmes, Agatha Christie, or Ellery Queen. If anyone can recommend more deductive-style mysteries like Conan Doyle or Queen, I would be forever grateful. I just can't handle all the melodrama in some of the modern authors. (Note: Bee Keeper's Apprentice series is a hard pass.) Still trying to read Brian May's doctoral thesis, and then I have some archaeological bits to catch up on. And yes, I'm re-reading my favorite cookbooks.
  4. Well I...golly, I'm just gonna HAVE to use it for Woodsy's sake. *sniffle*
  5. Okay, something cheerful now! I'm not sure about worldwide, but here in the US there's something called "Happy Heart Hunt" going on. People decorate their windows or porches with hearts, and it's kind of a Facebook scavenger hunt. I figured we could all use some happiness. (A roomscape I kept to under 20 layers. Will wonders never cease?)
  6. My appointment got canceled. I hope you and @Pixey have been able to make all of yours!
  7. At this point, I will be happy if it doesn't get any worse. *hug*
  8. Gaussian Blur at 50??? Yikes! Glad the surgery was able to help! You as well!
  9. No, although the pressure in that eye caused a cataract as well. Lucky me, I get the aggressive form. My doctor ended up canceling my appointment. How did yours go? *hug*
  10. Well, I try not to think about it too much.... *hugs back* You too!
