vertical lines in a circle


Recommended Posts

hi, I have been looking for a good part of an hour now but couldn't find a solution to my problem. I want to make verical lines in a circle, like you can find in a clock. example:

@FreSch, I used the clock plugin found here: https://forums.getpaint.net/topic/110883-clock-plugin/. And then I got rid of the items I did not need from the clock. I am sure there is an easier way but that is how I got the image.

I think I have found a way to get what I want, it isn't easy but it works for now. 

I make a bunch of vertical lines, then using another layer and the circle tool I cut out the parts of the lines to leave a circle like that. took me a while but yeah, it's kinda annoying.

@Ladybug's way of using the Clock plugin may be the easiest and fastest.

 

Another way is to duplicate a transparent layer with a vertical line, use Rotate/Zoom (Ctrl+Shift+Z) to rotate (say by 6 degrees), duplicate that layer and rotate that, and continue duplicating and rotating until your rotation reaches the first line, then merge all layers (Flatten, Ctrl+Shift+F).

(Rotating by 6 degrees will result in 60 layers, i.e. 60 lines, one for each minute of the hour).

How about using Circle Text with a long line of the | character at a large font-size?

yeah, I guess using a plugin is the best way then. 

Thanks for all the help guys!
