  1. I have just made an attempt to download and instal the latest version of Paint.NET, but had to abandon it as it attempted to instal Astromenda on my PC, which is some sort of browser hi-jacker. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.
  2. Well, finally sorted the problem. It was down to the fact that I had not got an Ariel font on board. Don't know how that came about, but anyway all is OK now. Many thanks for your time, everyone. Eric
  3. OK, BB. This is what my full screen looks like. The Effects menu contains only the items shewn. Hope this helps.
  4. Thanks once again. Seems to be a dearth of entries in my Effects drop-down.
  5. Thanks, Rep. Copy of my 'Effects' folder contents.
  6. I said earlier in a previous post (which I placed in the wrong category) that I have re-installed dpy's pack, but cannot now locate 'Circle Text' in the drop-down menu. The reason seems to be that I have not got the 'Text Formation' heading in the menu. Any ideas? I have build 3.5.8 running on Windows XP pro. Thanks once again. Eric
  7. I have just downloaded dpy's plug-in pack and installed it into my Effects folder. However, I can't see Circle Text facility in any of my drop-down menus, although it is in my Effects folder. I have had it installed and used it in the past, but had to replace my HD so hence the re-installation. I am running Windows XP pro. Probably pilot error. All help appreciated. Thanks.
  8. Many thanks, folks. All ship-shape and Bristol fashion. Problem solved. Eric
  9. Thanks, but the transparency setting is intentional. As I said, I have not had this problem before. Here is an example of why I require transparency, besides obtaining the desired colour intensity. As you can see, the original footpaths and markings are still visible, which saves time having to reinsert them. Eric
  10. Thanks a lot. I'v tried the anti-aliasing, already, and it made no difference. This is the problem I have. The lines are going on in layers, as you can see. Eric
  11. I frequently use the lines/curve tool for filling in large items on the documents (maps) which I update.In the past, I have had no trouble doing this, but I now find that the lines no longer merge into one another, but overlap. I get the same effect when using the paintbrush tool. It is probably something that I am doing incorrectly, but blowed if I know what. Can someone please give me some advice? Thanks. Eric
  12. I have opened a .jpg image in both Paint.net and Windows Picture and Fax Viewer. The Windows image is patently better than the one in Paint.net. Click here to see them http://www.artus-familyhistory.com/source/Ledbury.html The top image is Paint, the lower Windows Viewer. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.
