  1. Thanks for this! It is the behavior I was looking for. I was so used to clicking inside the selection in the prior version.
  2. Yeah, I used the layers method once, but that's such a pain compared to the way the prior version worked. If I wanted to do some quick edits and copy/paste several selections then I'd have to keep creating a new layer? Or are you saying I can just create 1 additional layer and do all of my selection copy/pasting like the old version? That wouldn't be so bad.
  3. Hello, First off, I love the new Paint.NET beta! You guys have done a great job on it. That being said, I am having a hard time copy/pasting and moving selections compared to the prior version. Sometimes I want to copy an area, then paste it and move it to another area to overwrite what was there, but if the selection is too small it I can only get the selection to rotate or stretch. If I happen to get the 4 arrow move icon and try to move the selection, it actually removes from the old position, which leaves a transparency crosshatch in its place. The old version didn't work like that. What am I doing wrong? Thanks, Cav
  4. Actually, I ended up creating something close enough with a friend at work that has photoshop, then I produced something in PDN. Here's a sample: The top tab bars were done in Photoshop and the bottom were done in PDN. It's basically a white to transparent gradient image that I use as a table cells background, then I set the cell bgcolor to what ever I want and I don't have to fool with CSS other than to set the cell borders as I did in the sample. Though the PDN version isn't exactly what I wanted it'll do for now while I continue to play with PDN. I like the Photoshop version as well, but it's a little too subtle. I still want to try to reproduce Mr. Monkey's sig version in PDN, but haven't had time. Thanks for the help, CT
  5. Both the background color and cell text will be pulled from a database. Then I will either use a stylesheet that is built dynamically or standard HTML attributes such as bgcolor="" to implement the style I am looking for. The users will basically be able to pick various color themes and I didn't want to have a lot of graphics for things like tabs and headers. I wanted them to just pick a color, then when the HTML is rendered it puts the glass effect in the cell that happens to be tab. I hope this is what you were asking for, but if not just let me know. Thanks, CT
  6. I understand completly. I looked at the RULES thread, but apparently I was too busy trying to comprehend the letter "a" that I missed item #4. :oops: I think what I am wanting is something like Mr. Monkey's sig/banner, but I have clue zero about this Z Index is in PDN. I know Z Order in programming, so I was thinking it may have something to do with layers. Either way, I'll keep plugging away until I figure it out, but any suggestions and/or tutorials for PDN that might get me started would be a great help. Since PDN is fairly new I haven't found many articles, except for Photoshop articles, which seem to make up every 3rd page on the net. Thanks, CT
  7. Yeah, that is what I am looking for. It doesn't need to be too fancy or glassy, just so long as it has what looks like a little light reflecting. The thing is, all I want is the effect. The background color and text will be set via HTML. I will have to play around with PDN and see if I can come up with something. CT
  8. NOTE: If this subject line still isn't suitable for the forum mods, then I give up... Hi, I'm a web developer that's new to graphics, so have no clue what to search for, and was wondering if there was a way to simplify my life and was hoping you guys could help. I was poking around the net when I stumbled across The Sketch Pad : Wet Paint and liked the gradient glass effect they use for section headers and such. The ones that are light blue on top and then darker blue on bottom. I know I won't word this correctly, but I hope I make myself clear... Is there a way to produce a semi-transparent effect like that in an image so that I can put it in a HTML table cell then just change the table cell back color so that I can have one image that can be any color and look like it has a glass gradient effect? If there's no way without creating an image for every color I may need, then I guess that's what I will have to do. Thanks in advance, CT
