  1. Currently into Doja Cat, especially Kiss Me More from the new Planet Her album. But I don't think they'd like me posting links to that on YT here or some (most) of her other songs because of their "R Rated" lyrics. Still she is the business, a genuine talent; think Katie Perry, Rihanna and Nicki Minaj being involved in a freak Star Trek transporter accident and you'll get an idea of what she's like if you don't know already.
  2. That made me think, it would be quite useful if PDN did have that facility for fonts. I'm thinking along the lines of a favourite fonts list. I have probably over 500 fonts due to the the ones I've added to Windows font store over the years, usually for one off purposes and often involving PDN. A smaller favourite fonts list also allowing you to save the same font with different size/type settings might be helpful for specific projects too.
  3. Ah-ha not understanding ardneh's advice was because it wasn't clear that bit about using the keyboard to select the first letter of the font in question. Thanks to Ego Eram Reputo for making that clearer. I've just tried it and it indeed does work. Its a very useful feature I wish I'd known about a long time ago.
  4. I don't understand that ^ advice. It surely assumes you just have a few dozen fonts installed rather than hundreds. If the latter is the case you are doomed to scrolling down through the whole collection to select a Z named font like Zrnic, one I've had cause to use quite a lot. The scrolling is very fast though and I don't believe you're wasting that much time doing it. However it could be a useful feature being able to type the font's name into the box to select it, similar to the way you can adjust the font size manually.
  5. With the portable new PDN version with .NET 5 built in what is the advice if you already have .NET 5 installed? Last week there was an update to another, completely unrelated tool I use, which newly required .NET Runtime 5.0.7 to work so I installed it for that. I assume it is the same thing we're talking about here.
  6. When I saw how much RAM he has and the reasonable GPU too, BTW both equal or better than recommended Photoshop minimums, I assumed, incorrectly, something must be wrong. The 8GB RAM recommendation only became standard in January this year, before that I think it was just 2.5GB. But indeed with just a bit of Googling you can easily find information about how memory greedy Photoshop and just opening large .psd files themselves can be. There are 'experts' recommending fast 16GB DDR4 as minimum and up to 64GB, with, 8GB GPUs, i7 CPUs and SSDs being used too.
  7. So there's no way to stop it using system RAM rather than the graphics card's VRAM? Seems odd that you can have at least minimum OS required RAM and, as JadedTrekkie says: "......a great graphics card...", which nowadays must mean at least 6GB VRAM and could be >16GB VRAM yet is coming up against this graphics display memory issue. I think it might be a good idea to check the whole system's graphics properties (System > Display settings > Advanced Properties >........) just to be certain there is nothing amiss in the memory allocation. I'd also check your system RAM (how much?) too. My own recent experience of a part failed RAM module informed me that if you have enough RAM you can have a still apparently fully functional PC which only starts indicating there is a serious hardware problem when the system is put under stress.
  8. For the check pattern you should look at BoltBait's Grid/Checkerboard or the similar but usefully different MadJik's Grid & Checker Maker plugins.
  9. Do you mean a ramp, for wheel-chair users? From a graphics point of view it shouldn't be difficult to texture a ramp to look like white painted concrete, similar to the walls. But I think what you may also be asking for are design ideas for that particular location. Yes? That's more difficult as the entrance to the cafeteria is on a hill with the narrow pavement/sidewalk and kerb dropping from right to left too.
  10. Yes ^ and BTW you can adjust the font size to almost anything with certain limits just by moving the cursor into the font size box, left clicking so its highlighted in blue, then editing the size to whatever you want. You can also use the mouse wheel to scroll backwards and forwards through the font size pre-sets provided. But why either or both the font type and size is changing, that needs more information. It should not be happening with PDN. The only time I've come across this problem is not with PDN but with Wordpad which has a habit of reverting to the default font given the slightest opportunity. Originally that was Arial 10pt but has been Calibri 11pt from at least Win7 with no way to change the default permanently.🙁 You have to use a work-around, saving a custom empty document template using the font/size, line spacing etc you'd prefer.
  11. That's just about what I said but the explanation of what Copy Selection actually actually means: copying the shape of the area selected rather than the actual image content makes more sense than what I thought it meant. So thanks for that clarification; perhaps if it was renamed Copy Selection Area or Shape or Outline it might be clearer what using that option does.
  12. I don't usually use the Snipping tool but this prompted me to try with a screen grab from here. I've had no problems (Win7) copying it into PDN then Selecting All > Copy and pasting into a Wordpad. As far as the email goes I have to the save the image file (default is the original format - PNG) and then "Insert" or add as an attachment by browsing for the image file. I can not find any way to paste it into an email directly from PDN. I think you'll have to described exactly how you're adding the PDN edited image file to the document/email for clarity. You used Copy Selection. Never used that myself but it seems to provoke that "polygonList....." error if you try to paste it into Wordpad or other documents. I think Copy Selection is used just to copy selections within a single image ie. so you can copy a selected area to multiple positions within that image. Try using Select All then vanilla Copy instead.
  13. This is above my knowledge base on saving formats; I had to look up what an indexed PNG was and I'm still not clear. However what I do know about PDN is that whilst the standard Save As: PNG gives you only colour bit options the Save As: Optimised PNG gives you RGB, Palette and other save type options. Is Palette the same as 'Indexed'? I just don't know but in the absence of more knowledgeable advice you might like to try the Optimized PNG plugin: OptiPNG. https://forums.getpaint.net/topic/114190-optipng-filetype-2019-05-07/
  14. It would be better if you posted auf Englisch. But from the perceived tone at the start "huere schmutz programm.................." which I believe, colloquially, means "Your s*** program........." I don't think that is the best way of asking for help here, if that is indeed what you were doing.
