Xara :: Automatic Reopening Of Unwanted XDP6 Files

May 16, 2011

In Designer Pro 6 Under Options, Backups, there's a check box that says, "Backup open documents on program close and restore on program start." Sometimes I want some of my open documents to reopen on program start (I think this is great!) But my problem is even when I first close those documents (that I don't want to open on program restart) before closing XDP6, when I reopen XDP6 the ones that I closed reopen. What can be done to change this behavior if I want to keep the box checked?

Illustrator :: Using Blend Tool To Blend Colour Between Two Objects To See Anchor Points

May 2, 2013

When using the blend tool to blend colour between two objects is there a way to see the anchor points so I know where to click the blend tool.   I realise the cursor changes when over one but its seems very cumbersome to have to move it around until it changes rather than click directly on one which I could do if I could see it.

Illustrator :: Blend Tool Not Making Smooth Color Blend

Dec 4, 2013

I'm using Illustrator CC (on a Win7 Pro machine) at a beginner level, probably halfway to intermediate. I'm trying to learn how to blend colors together for highlights of various types (skin tones, clothing, light on objects, etc.) so that when I'm making a graphic for a project I'll have a decent idea of which tool/technique is best for the specific effect I need.
I'm trying to use the Smooth Color option in the blend tool. Late yesterday afternoon I recall creating two ellipses (one of which was a solid fill and one of which was a gradient going from black to transparent) and getting a smooth color transition between the two. It was a much harsher effect than I was looking for so I didn't keep it. This morning, while trying to replicate the same thing, I seem to be unable to use smooth color between two objects if one or more of them has a gradient applied. I only get what you see below, which is a step between the two objects.
I've done searches and found multiple references to blending gradients in this way and have followed those instructions (create the shapes, fill with the gradients, then either click on the Blend tool and click on the center of each shape, or click on Object -> Blend -> Make) but I can't seem to get a Smooth Color blend if either object has a gradient applied. Am I missing an important step somewhere? I'm 95% sure I accomplished it yesterday and nothing has been changed since then.

Illustrator :: How To Use Blend Tool To Blend Two Different Art Brushes With Different Colors

Jun 26, 2013

I am trying to blend two different art brushes with different colors using the blend tool.  I'm trying to use two fixed-size line segments of the same length and then applying the two different brushes to those segments ( each art brush is a different color).  Then I want to blend them the regular way so their colors transition.  However, when I do this, the first shape is a different color, but all subsequent blend steps are the color of the second blended shape.  Why is this? It doesn't blend the colors for some reason.

CorelDRAW X5 :: Delete Path When Using Blend Tool?

Jul 23, 2011

I'm learning to use Coreldraw for artistic metal cutting using a plasma cutter, so the file itself is important and not just what appears on the screen (or what prints out).

I've used the blend tool to draw some circles along a wavy path. I want the circles but I don't want the path. I remove the outline and the path dissappears on the screen but it's still in the file and when I export as a dxf file there is the path cutting right through the circles.

If I use Detach from Path then the circles simple come of my wavy path and end up in a straight line.

Are there any other techniques to give the same result but one where I can keep the circles/objects in their locations while removing the path at file level.

I know of a plugin available for Coreldraw that can take a bunch of dissimilar objects and place them on a path but at this point don't know if it can do what I need and delete the path afterwards.

Or is there any way I can copy the circles without copying the path.

Illustrator :: Blend Tool Isn't Sticking To Its Shape

Sep 22, 2012

I have been having issues with using the blend tool on my object. If you look at the picture, I had one outer shape that was what I wanted shaded and a thinner shape that runs inside the other. It blends perfectly fine everywhere except at the bottom. I don't know how to explain it or what went wrong but I can't figure out how to make the blend fit inside the shape.

Photoshop :: Blend A Couple Of Images Together Using The Gradient Tool

Nov 2, 2005

I'm trying to blend a couple of images together using the gradient tool.

I moved one image to the other using the move tool, I then added Layer Mask (in the layers palette), i then got my gradient tool and selected black,white.....I used the gradient tool on the left side of the image and it blended beautifully.

So, now that the left side is blended nicely, I attempt to blend the right side. The right side blends very nice.....but my left side went back to where it was originally.

How do I blend multiple sides of the image?

Illustrator :: Blend Tool - Image Upload Not Allowed

I am having diffuculty with the blend tool! I tried to upload the image but it said it was't allowed.  Not sure how to correctly explain the problem but I'll do my best.  I am have trouble getting the blend tool to recognize the images.  I can only select the very edge of the images and then it doesn't look like it should when it does blend. How I can upload the file to show what I am trying to say?

GIMP :: Unable To Select Feather Tool To Blend In New Image

Apr 19, 2012

When I copy a selection from one image to another, I can't select the feather tool to blend it in the new image (it's greyed out). I have to first anchor the layer, then use the paths tool to re-select the pasted portion again, then feather. Is there another way?

Update: Looks like I can feather before copying/pasting the selection.

Illustrator :: Blend Tool Doesn't Create Smooth Blends?

Jun 13, 2013

When I use the blend tool for a smooth blend, the blends comes out jagged and horrible, as if it is doing a step blend rather than a smooth blend. I have used the tool before by either using the shortcut (Alt+Ctrl+B) or using it via the Object>Blend pathway and it worked out fine, but now Illustrator doesn't want to create a smooth blend.
What I'm trying to say is; is there an option that is causing this to happen that I may have accidently turned on, or has my copy of Illustrator gone into stupidity mode and I need to reinstall it?
I've attached pictures of what I mean with the settings I'm using and outputs. I hope your collective minds can smack this one in the face. I'm sure I'm doing something ridiculously simple to cause this.
I'm using CS5 Illustrator and my relevant PC hardware is listed below. - Intel i5-2500 3.30Ghz
- nVidia GeForce GTX 560

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?

Xara :: Printing Any Image - Can't Find Print Option

Feb 22, 2012

I used to use Xara Xtreme 4 and loved it. Since changing my computer to one with Windows 7 I have not been able to use Xara Xtreme.

Needed to print out an old Xara image today so downloaded and installed Xara Web Designer 7 as this seems to be the nearest I can get to the old Xara Xtreme that runs on my laptop.

However, I can't find any "Print" option. It's not under File, Ctrl P doesn't do anything, nothing under right clicking. I need to print something quickly and I've given up trying to find the Print option. where have they 'hidden' Print?

Also, am I correct in thinking Web Designer 7 is the nearest program with features to Xara Xtreme or are the features of Xara Xtreme loss forever to this new web site design program?
