ShapeMaker - by the Dwarf Horde v1.7.0 (October 6, 2020)


Recommended Posts

ShapeMaker is a great tool.
Thanks to all those who contributed to the creation of this very professional plugin.
I haven't read all the documentation, but I'm wondering if we can create shapes like the one in the picture below.

I think that might be do-able. The problem will be that the breaks in the dashed line are going to play havoc with the fill color ( if you choose that option). If you don't care about that give it a go. ūüė®

Definitely do-able. Just remember to de-select the 'Link with Previous Path' button.

This will definitely happen. So your shape will only be usable in 'Draw Shape Outline' mode.  In below example, I color-filled the shape on a separate layer.

I installed the shapemaker and created two lines. Next, I exported the creation as an svg file.
I closed paint.net and after a few minutes, I opened it and tried to import the previously created svg file.
I get the following error.
<< No Paths Found>>
This is the file that i try to import 


<svg height="500" viewBox="0 0 500 500" width="500" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg">
    <path d="M 240,40 C 260,10,330,20,340,40 C 200.83,65,61.67,90,30,100,70,10,74.17,105,150,100 M 228,152 C 273,200,318,185,351,128 M 110,180 S 120.39,193.56,120,200,114.61,216.44,110,220,164.47,276.26,300,270,350.85,278.58,340,290" fill="none" stroke="#000" stroke-width="1.0"></path>

Confirmed. I was also able to import the geometry.

I pasted the supplied SVG code into a new text file and saved it with a *.SVG extension. ShapeMaker loaded it without problem using File > Import Geometry.

 

I saved it as a brand new SVG file using File > Export (SVG). That too was reopened without error.

@Yiannis it's possible you may not have saved/named it properly.  This how it should look and be brought into Paint.net. 

 

(I apologize for incorrectly suggesting you use another Plugin as I've never tried it before ūüė¨ but now I know how to make one, and it worked for me too).
