Problem with using lines/curve tool


Recommended Posts

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.

I'm not exactly sure what you mean, but I think you are talking about "anti-alias." In the toolbar across the top, there is something that looks like this :AntiAliasingDisabled: or this :AntiAliasingEnabled: . If it looks like the first, click on it and change it to the second. If not, I don't understand what is wrong and a picture would help clear things up.

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.

The second step to MadJik's suggestion would be to lower the opacity for the new layer. This way all the lines will be opaque with respect to each other, but then as a whole they will overlay over the rest of the image with translucency.
