Simon B's Plugin Pack: custom brushes, editable text and more (2014-06-22)

Recommended Posts

Hi!

I'm the new guy...

Everything work perfect to me, the link, the Simon's site, the download & the .dlls (also the minibrush tool, installed and working)

Think I'll be back after a few attempts with the software (with or without questions, who knows?)

thx a lot!

I'm unsure how on-my-end this is but it seems the download on Simon's site isn't functioning at the moment. It returns with this error for me:

This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it. The document tree is shown below.
<Error>
<Code>NoSuchBucket</Code>
<Message>The specified bucket does not exist</Message>

</HostId>
</Error>

Trying to download it with the "Save as" functionality returns a void file error. I'm using Chrome [Win 8.1 x64] btw, but IE returned a generic 404 and File not found errors. Could be maintenance?

Anyway, just thought I'd notify. I've sadly not yet used these plugins because of this but especially Editable Text is one of the best ideas I've come accross. Hopefully things aren't properly broken and it's either temporary or an easy fix.

In this case use FireFox. It does not cause problems when loading.

No, Lobstarooo is correct. The web page loads correctly, but the actual zip file does not.

The zip is available on archive.org

Yes you are right. Now zip file is not downloaded from FireFox even.

I'm not sure if this question was already answered so I'll post it anyway.

  • I downloaded CustomBrushesMini plugin and installed it. It has no custom brushes included.
  • I downloaded some Photoshop brushes - ABR files.
  • I downloaded ABRMate and using it converted all the ABR files into PNG.
  • But CustomBrushesMini doesn't see either ABR files or PNG files.

Is there a way to use the brushes? Can I convert them to some other file format the plugin would recognize? How? Using which software?

 

Thank you, folks.

Your screenshot shows both Local Disk C: and D: drives. C:\program files\paint.net is the usual path for a default installation. The installation would only appear on D: drive if you did a custom installation.

Can you confirm that it is D: drive that has your paint.net installation on it?

OK, there's your problem. You're not putting the plugins in the right spot.

Find your paint.net program icon, right-click on it and choose "Properties" from the menu.

On the Shortcut tab, click the "open file location" button.

This will open a window showing paint.net. THIS is where you need to look for your Effects and File Types folders.
