Xara :: Rectangle Tool Includes Linear Fill?

Jul 16, 2013

I`m still using Xara X1... and am having two issues with the rectangular tool.

First, the rectangle draws on an angle, almost more like a diamond. I would like it to draw parallel to a horizon.

Second, the rectangle draw includes a linear fill. I would like to lose that parameter so that the rectangle can be a simple solid color that I can choose for myself.

Xara :: How To Create A Linear Fill

Aug 31, 2011

I have tried to create a linear fill and it looks fine in Xara Designer, but after exporting the image as a jpeg, the gradation does not look smooth at all, it looks rather terrible. It does not look as smooth and as seemless as work I have seen which was created using software such as Photoshop. Am I doing something wrong?

Xara :: Linear Perspective To Textures Used To Fill Shapes?

Dec 9, 2013

Any good technique for applying gradual, linear perspective to textures used to fill shapes? An example will make my question much clearer (the attached drawing, both in JPG and .XAR).

The top shape is a carpet (or something) with a bitmap fill applied. I want to draw it curled, as in the bottom shape--the texture doesn't follow the contour of the object (as expected, since this isn't a 3D modelling program).

But is there some way to simulate the gradual rotation and foreshortening of a texture, to make folds and curls in fabric look more realistic?

Xara :: Fill Rectangle With Noise And Create Bitmap Copy

Sep 25, 2013

I don't know if it is the update or not but every time I fill a rectangle with noise and create a bitmap copy and try to erase the white with Medhi eraser classic XP&GD and XDPX now stops working. I have tried this over and over with the same result, or should I say lack of a result? All I am trying to do is make a star field. This is the same basic method I used before to create animated snow..

Xara :: Crop And Straighten With The Fill Tool?

Dec 19, 2012

You can easily fix crooked photos, zoom and crop with the fill tool.

The first step is to make sure you have the rulers enabled (window>bars>rulers) then click and drag a horizontal guideline from the ruler.

Select your photo and select the fill tool, you will see that your photo is actually a vector shape with a bitmap fill. Click and drag the outer fill handles to enlarge (zoom) the bitmap within the shape and rotate as needed to straighten the image. Move the cursor over the line of the fil handles until it changes to a hand then click and drag the photo around to adjust it's position within the shape.

Illustrator Scripting :: Changing Angle Of Linear Gradient Fill

Feb 4, 2013

Suppose I have an object filled with a linear gradient. This object is the only selected. I just would like to change the angle of the gradient to 25 degrees. So I think I could do:
var doc = app.activeDocument
alert(doc.selection[0].fillColor.angle) // the result is the exact angle of the gradient fill of the selected object. Suppose 12 degrees.
//now the try to change:
doc.selection[0].fillColor.angle = 25.0
No errors are found by the Extended Script Toolkit..BUT...it does not change anything. As Illustrator reference manual does not say this property is read only, I think I could write.

Xara :: Linear Transparency Not Affecting Lines

Jan 26, 2011

When I apply simple flat transparency to a line, or a shape with an outline, it becomes translucent - as expected.

But when I apply a linear (or circular / elliptical / conical etc) transparency, only the fill is affected, and the line remains opaque

AutoCAD .NET :: Fill Table Inside Specified Rectangle?

Jun 23, 2013

Let's say I have a rectangle and I want to fill a table inside of it.

The below is the code snippet I wrote.....
Table tb = new Table();tb.NumColumns = 5;tb.NumRows = 40;tb.SetRowHeight(C_height / 40);tb.SetColumnWidth(C_width / 5);tb.Position = new Point3d(ext.MaxPoint.X, total_MaxPoint.Y, 0);tb.Width = C_width;tb.Height = C_height;tb.SetTextHeight(C_height / 40, (int)RowType.DataRow);tb.HorizontalCellMargin = 0;tb.VerticalCellMargin = 0;btr.AppendEntity(tb);tr.AddNewlyCreatedDBObject(tb, true);
Where C_width and C_height are the width and height of the rectangle respectively.

Then, I got the following

The red line is the specified rectangle. It seems like SetRowHeight and SetColumnWidth are not working.

FYI, the rectangle size is around width = 3.5m height = 5m.

Illustrator :: Rotating Text With Rectangle Fill?

Oct 8, 2012

I need to create a text with a rectangle background and a coloured border around this rectangle. Here is what I do:

- I create a text
- I select the text and add a fill and a stroke that I then transform into a rectangle
- I now have my "label" as I want it to be but now I need to rotate it.
Problem is I can rotate the text but fill and stroke don't follow, they remain horizontal and just adapt so that it still fits the text. As a result I have a rotated font with a big rectangle box. Can I rotate fill+stroke with the text?

GIMP :: How To Fill Rectangle Area With Gradient That Fits It

Nov 25, 2013

These gradients in gimp are really hard to figure out (not saying other things seem easy to me), however I'm sure if one knows what to do, they can solve many problems.

I had that screenshot of a text list:

And I wanted to make it fade away from the highlighted line:

However, with the blend tool, this is actually impossible or really really hard, because I can't aim it so preciselly.
