  1. My Outline effect is filling in my entire page instead of outlining my text. It doesn't show the color wheel option while I'm adjusting the outline, either. I installed that exact plug-in about a month ago, and it worked at first. I'm wondering if I have a setting clicked that I can't find. How I did it-- first attempt: I added a layer on top, Pasted my text on that separate layer, clicked outside it with Magic Wand, tried Outline. Second attempt: All that, and I Inverted Selection and tried Outline. Am I doing something incorrect? The layer with this text on it is Transparent all around it.
  2. @Ego Eram Reputo, I believe you! Lol, I'm just a newb 🤓. @Rick Brewster, I'm glad I read this now, because I'm sitting at a Starbucks, and was holding myself back from Hulking-out on my little tablet for the lag in almost half of my design strokes. I see it from a logical place, now. Effing, woosah, 😌.
  3. I got the advice from @Ego Eram Reputo on this forum to double my image size to create an outline effect. This was in place of the plug-in I got that has the Outline effect that I couldn't figure out. I was getting inconsistent boldness around different parts of my image with no apparent rhyme or reason. Turns out, I needed to mess with the Intensity in the Outline option. I set it to 99 and all my problems went away! Now, I have a bold outline 🤓!

  5. I'm trying to double the size of the image, and I'm getting this message: Application version: 4.1.6 System.OutOfMemoryException: VirtualAlloc returned a null pointer, bytes = 1,264,688,656 ---> System.AggregateException: One or more errors occurred. ---> System.OutOfMemoryException: VirtualAlloc returned a null pointer, bytes = 1,264,688,656 at PaintDotNet.SystemLayer.Memory.AllocateLarge(UInt64 bytes, Boolean zeroFill) in D:\src\pdn\src\SystemLayer\Memory.cs:line 162 at PaintDotNet.Runtime.RetryManager.<>c__DisplayClass7_0`1.<RunMemorySensitiveOperation>b__0() in D:\src\pdn\src\Base\Runtime\RetryManager.cs:line 139 at PaintDotNet.Runtime.RetryManager.RunMemorySensitiveOperation(Int32 maxAttempts, Action action) in D:\src\pdn\src\Base\Runtime\RetryManager.cs:line 168 --- End of inner exception stack trace --- --- End of inner exception stack trace --- at PaintDotNet.Runtime.RetryManager.RunMemorySensitiveOperation(Int32 maxAttempts, Action action) in D:\src\pdn\src\Base\Runtime\RetryManager.cs:line 195 at PaintDotNet.Runtime.RetryManager.RunMemorySensitiveOperation[T](Int32 maxAttempts, Func`1 func) in D:\src\pdn\src\Base\Runtime\RetryManager.cs:line 144 at PaintDotNet.MemoryBlock.Allocate(Int64 bytes, MemoryBlockAllocFlags flags) in D:\src\pdn\src\Core\MemoryBlock.cs:line 383 at PaintDotNet.MemoryBlock..ctor(Int64 bytes, MemoryBlockAllocFlags flags) in D:\src\pdn\src\Core\MemoryBlock.cs:line 275 at PaintDotNet.Surface..ctor(Int32 width, Int32 height, SurfaceCreationFlags surfaceCreationFlags) in D:\src\pdn\src\Core\Surface.cs:line 246 at PaintDotNet.Actions.ResizeAction.<>c__DisplayClass7_2.<PerformAction>b__1(Task task) in D:\src\pdn\src\PaintDotNet\Actions\ResizeAction.cs:line 346 I got there by Rectangle Selecting the image I want outlined >> Image >> Resize >> and changing Percentage to 200% Did I do it incorrectly?

  6. Thank you for the plug-in @pyrochild (I know this post is super old but maybe you'll see this 😀)! I have mine up and working (🤓 I'm freaking stoked!), although, I have a question about using the 'outline' feature. My canvas size is 7,271px x 10,871px-- is this why I'm getting a less clean look? I set the Thickness in different ranges between 1-10, and it wasn't enough to fully outline. Higher than that, I get better outline coverage, but an awkward white outline around that. Any tricks for me? BTW: I promise I'm putting effort into finding as many answers as I can through forums and YouTube videos so as not to wear anybody out with my questions *cough cough @toe_head2001* 🙂. This particular plug-in is something I don't know how to search for outside this forum and a Youtube video with a direct link to this plug-in, but that particular problem isn't one I saw had to be discussed.
  7. Thank you, again, @toe_head2001! Works perfect and I can move forward with my design
  8. I have a plug-in downloaded from the forum, but I'm unable to follow directions for installing them due to not being able to select Open File Location under the Properties for What do I do?
  9. Thank you @toe_head2001! I went to 'choose where to save' on my browser and selected a folder I created. Does that ring a bell as part of the process to keep my files? If it helps, I'm on a Surface Go. Sorry if this posts multiple times. I've pushed Submit Reply a few times with no full response... lol, a Surface Go is not the strongest tool for all the madness I'm creating. #babysteps

Is there something different, now?
