Kat Posted June 28, 2008 Share Posted June 28, 2008 Hi I have been looking through the board (and used search) for my actual problem. Sorry if this has been posted before, I haven't seen it though. I downloaded Paint.Net just 3 days ago and worked through 3 tuts by now, and mostly, I could help myself by reading through the thread and following the hints other people had gotten in similar situations. But since last night I've had a hard time using my gradient tool in transperency mode (the way it had to be set in the Camaro picture tut - which worked just fine with me). Whenever I tried to draw the line for the gradient, nothing happened EXCEPT: the 2 dots (beginning and end of line) were flashing. I also realized that the mouse looks like a big + sign when hovering over the picture or doing something on a layer. Guess this also wasn't there before. And thirdly, when writing text on a layer, right next to the text there is this sign: (just without the triangle right next to it, it's this arrowed cross put into a rectangle. I think I also haven't seen this one before. ~~~~~~~ So, meanwhile I became suspicious that somewhere, somehow, and unconsciously of what I was doing, I changed something in the general settings. Could that be? And if so: what and where? How could I "repair" that? Or is it that what I described above is completely fine and I just didn't notice it before? I'm a bit lost at the moment, and I would appreciate some competent help. Thank you in advance from an unexperienced noob. :oops: Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
