Xara :: How Useful Mask Tool Is

Oct 6, 2011

how useful the mask tool is! I've been exploring it. It's perfect for working on things like erasing edges of lines, splitting objects, you name it! It's so much better than the older method of having to make objects on top of an object or whatever..

Sep 20, 2011

I'm sure it's something obvious, but I've checked the documentation, and cannot figure out how to get the Mask Icon on after selecting a .jpeg image. Tried doing "Window>Show Mask" as well, but "Show Mask is greyed out.

Xara :: Selector Tool Becomes Page-size Change Tool

Aug 6, 2011

In Xara Designer Pro 7, when I have selector tool active and want to drag over a number of elements to select them the selector tool will change the size of the canvas (page). Is that not a bug? I used this way of selecting elements often, and it is not good for me with this new behaviour.

Is it a bug or is it a new setting which I then need to change?

Photoshop :: Quick Mask Tool

Feb 12, 2004

I must have 'done' something to change how it works because now when I use it, the pixels are not completely selected.

I press the quick mask button and paint the area i want to mask. Then when I have finished, I go back to normal mode. I usually push 'SHIFT' + 'CTRL' + 'I' to invert my selection and then delete everything I didn't mask however, now when I try to invert, I get the message 'No pixels are more than 50% selected'.

Photoshop :: Editing Existing Mask With Pen Tool In CS6

May 9, 2013

Here's my question re: editing an exisiting mask in CS6.
So, say I create the basic selection with the quick selection wand - for this example, maybe a selection of a horse.

But, if I don't get the area between the horses legs and want to select that area with the pen tool then delete it from the exisitng mask (i.e. clean up the mask with the pen tool) how do I do it? 
I've seen lots of tutorials that talk about adding selections together, but that doesn't work in this case because my secondary selection is within the original selection.
I know this can be done with the brush tool (cleaning up masks) but I'd like to do it with the pen tool because the results are better.

Photoshop :: Move Tool Moving Mask But Not Layer

May 29, 2012

So I am adding a leaf to the waterfall image.  The leaf is on it's own layer with a layer mask, and was moved into position without a problem.  A drop shadow was added with Layer Styles, but when trying to move the layer again, the mask moved, but the layer stayed behind.
I checked for Auto select, which was off.  I unlinked the mask, tested, relinked the mask, and tested again.  Same problem.  Eventually it started working OK after I tried moving with first the layer active, and then the mask active, and swapping this state about three times.  I could not get it to misbehave again after this.
Nothing was locked.  Auto select was off. Other layers all moved OK.  I can find no explanation, and think of no user error (touch wood).

Photoshop :: Crop Tool When Vector Mask Is Active On A Layer

Jun 21, 2013

Using Photoshop CC, if you have a vector mask on a layer and attempt to crop the image, the vector mask shifts incorrectly after the crop is completed.  The image is garbled.  If I rasterize the vector mask to a standard layer mask, the crop works successfully. 
I've checked to make sure that there are no numbers in the crop tool options.  Nothing appears to be set incorrectly.

Jun 20, 2008

I'm currently jumping back and forward between quick mask mode and my standard layer. When I am in the standard layer the brush tool is performing as it should, but when I go into quick mask it is erasing my selection (red) rather than filling in where I draw!

Xara :: An Offset Tool?

Oct 4, 2012

I'm using Xara Photo & Graphic Designer 6 and I'm having fun with it. But there's one functionality I can't seem to find that I really need. I'm a CAD operator (and have that mentality), and I really want my AutoCAD Offset tool. It allows you to copy a line or shape a certain distance away. More importantly, if you "offset" a shape inside or outside it's boundary, it automatically makes the new shape equidistant from all the borders.

Anyway to do it in Xara P&GD6?

Xara :: Clone Tool In XD7

Jun 26, 2011

In Xara P+Designer 6 I can select an area to clone, then edit that selection with the Selector Tool.

I don't seem to manage that in XD 7 doing the identical thing, well, attempting to. Am I not doing something that I should be doing, for it to do the same as in Xara D6?

I can edit with the Shape Editor tool, but not rotate with the Selector Tool.

Xara :: How To Use Mold Tool

I don't know how to use efficiently the mold tool ( not a lot of tutorials about it ) .

Corel PHOTO-PAINT X5 :: Eraser And Brush Mask Tool Showing Icon Instead Of Circle Or Square

Mar 1, 2013

I must have fat fingered something and I now when I click on the Eraser Tool or the Brush Mask Tool instead of getting a circle or square, I get and icon of the tool instead.  They still work but they're harder to use without seeing the circle or square depending on what's selected.  I've been using Corel for many years and never had this happen and I can't figure out how to switch back.
