Paint Shop Pro :: Add Tools To The Layers Palette

Oct 5, 2011

I am having trouble adding tools to my layer palette in X4. Previously I use X2 and can perform this action. However it seems to be lacking in X4 and I certainly miss that.

In X2 I could easily add duplicate layer in the layer tab and all I had to do was a single click the tool and I could perform this action, it was convenient keeping in the same area where I could also delete the layer.

I know in X4 I can add the duplicate layers in the top toolbar, however it is not as convenient and seems to be counterintuitive to have it away from the delete layer tool. I also miss the other layer palette customizations.

Is there any other way to add the duplicate layers on the layers palette? Is there a way to perhaps copy the workspace from x2 to x4(probably a silly question).

Paint Shop Pro :: How To View Layers Palette

Apr 7, 2012

When I was experimenting before, I was able to see the different layers listed on the RH side of the workspace. Now they are not appearing at all. I have searched but still cannot view the list of the layers I have created.

This in turn means I cannot work on them. And yes, I have got the View>Palettes>Layers box ticked. How to view these layers listed?

Paint Shop Pro :: Customizing Layers Palette In X4

Feb 17, 2012

Someone just emailed me that she is "suddenly" able to customize the Layers palette - she even included a screenshot! How to do this???? I can't, no matter what I try. I have PSP X4 - the last drop given to us during beta testing, with the sp1 patch applied.

Paint Shop Pro :: X4 - No Layers Displayed In Layer Palette At All

Sep 8, 2011

I just installed the X4 trial. I still have X3U installed but not open. I keep the layer palette open all the time.

I open an existing image and the current layers are displayed correctly. I open another image and it looks fine too. I then copy the 2nd image or a layer from the 2nd image and paste it as a new layer onto the first image. No matter which image is active, the layer palette continues to show the layers from the 2nd image until I close it. At that point there are no layers displayed in the layer palette at all; not even the background. If I do a paste as new image or even just create a new image, there is nothing in the layer palette then either. It doesn't change if I close and reopen the layer palette. The only way I have found to get the layers to display is to click on something outside of PSP X4 such as an open browser screen and then go back to PSP X4.

Paint Shop Pro :: X4 Materials Palette

Jan 11, 2012

Whenever PSP X4 is restarted, the Materials Palette reverts to factory defaults. All the saved colours I have used are lost, and the background/foreground are both black.

Is there an option that can override this so it remembers the last settings? My workspace has been customized and properly saved in every aspect except the Materials Palette. It always reverts back to default settings.

Paint Shop Pro :: Materials Palette Changed

Aug 29, 2011

X3 Materials palette has 3 different color sets/tabs

I clicked to see them and went back to the default.

Now every time I open PSP it gives the second palette (that has coloured border) and I do not want that!

Tried multiple times to select the default one and close the application -no change- opens still with the wrong one next time.

Paint Shop Pro :: Tool Options Palette Becomes Detached?

Dec 23, 2011

The Tool Options Palette which normally resides in one of the bars along the top of the screen in the Edit Mode becomes detached. Basically undocked and positions itself somewhere else.I can drag and move it around but I cannot reattach it. It appears like a separate tool bar or palette in that it has its own status or title line across the top with the X to close at the right edge.

It responds normally as to all of the tools on it which correspond to the specific tool selected. The palette floats on top of the screen so finding a place to put it where it will not intrude on the image or other pallets or tool bars is a challenge. When the palette becomes detached like this, the line where it had resided above the work area no longer exists.

I don't recall conducting any particular task or operation which caused this to happen. I just noticed that it was no longer in its place and was now floating in a spot on the right side of the screen.

Paint Shop Pro :: X5 Histogram Palette Docking Location?

Nov 1, 2013

I just wanted to say that it appeared sometime in X5. I didn't install X5 until SP3 was available. I don't know if it first showed up in one of the SPs since I only ever installed SP3. In X4, I work with the Histogram Palette docked below the image at all times so I can monitor what is happening as I work within the various adjustments. If I check/uncheck the "Preview on Image" box, I can toggle the differences on the histogram as I work. This is invaluable functionality. I depend on it for my work. [I wish the Histogram window would give me readouts of Histogram values when I place my mouse over the Histogram window, but that is an enhancement request for another day.] Now with X5, I can ONLY dock the Histogram window over on the right side. This is about the most braindead place for it, as the width is extremely limited, which limits the scale at which change information is displayed to the point of being useless. Seemingly more braindead, while docked, the only dimension in which the Histogram can be expanded without sacrificing image preview size is vertically. Corel has taken what was a very useful tool and rendered it mostly useless. Knowing this is also a problem in X6, I will not be purchasing that version unless it has been fixed, which I gather has not happened yet. I tried to Save an X4 Workspace and Load it into X5, but X5 cannot even open an X4 Workspace. I guess Workspaces are another USELESS "feature" since Corel seems not to preserve basic function across Revs.

Paint Shop Pro :: Loss Of Colours In Materials Palette?

I have been happily using PSP X4 & previous versions back to 6. Suddenly my materials pallette is all black & white, & nothing I do will bring up the colour picker . When printing the thumbnail is also blacked out, although the print is OK. First noticed it using the Border tool -it only shows black even though it is printing a white border !

Paint Shop Pro :: X4 - Materials Palette Swatches Vs PAL File

Jul 3, 2012

I just started using PSP X4, but I have used previous versions of PSP in the past to do the following:

1. First, I use a different program (AutoCAD) that exports a .bmp. This bitmap has more than sixteen colors.
2. I open the .bmp in PSP. Then I load a 16 color palette (.pal file) by going to Image | Palette | Load Palette. This converts the .bmp to sixteen colors (just the colors that are included in the .pal file).
3. At this point, in previous versions of PSP, I am pretty sure that the Materials Palette would only display the colors from the .pal file that I had just loaded. Now with the new X4 version, it seems that the swatches shown in the Materials Palette have nothing to do with the .pal file I just loaded.

Is there a way I can force the Materials Palette to show the colors from my .pal file (and only the colors from my .pal file?

Paint Shop Pro :: Accessing Image Windows With Other Tools

Oct 30, 2013

Using external tools to automate PaintShop Pro operations? Such as AutoHotkey, AutoIt, Macro Express Pro, etc? To do stuff that scripts can't?

Mine is an old version, PSP 8, but this issue probably applies to more recent ones.

None of these programs seem able to access PSP's image windows. They don't appear in the list of windows when using AutoIt v3 Window Info, for example, or AHK Window Info 1.7. If there's some way to work with these 'child' windows.

Paint Shop Pro :: Suntan And Thinner Tools - No Options Listed

Nov 2, 2013

When I click on the makeup tools in version X6 – 64-bit it brings up 5 separate tools. I can find no options for the suntan or thinner tool although its states clearly in the user manual and other functions that there should be size and strength options. I have checked this forum and there are some posts that say there is no strength option for the suntan tool, however this is not what the user manual states. Is the user manual and the help function incorrect and if not, how do I bring up these options?

Paint Shop Pro :: Cropping Tools - Blank Icons On Floating Tool Bar

For some reason when I use the cropping tool the floating tool bar has blank icons on it. Sometimes there may be lines in them like they tried to load but most of the time they are just completely white.

They still work and everything but you have to run your mouse over them and wait for the box to pop-up thats says what it is to see which one you need.
