Click to create a shape layer alternative to a Adjustment layer. This is a comp-size, filled shape layer, with it's switch set to Adjustment layer. Why would this need to exist in the project folder?
Click to create a shape layer alternative to a Solid layer. This is a comp-size, filled shape layer. A color picker will open at creation, but you may just as easily press ESC on your keyboard to dismiss it.
Keep in mind that some effects need absolute coordinates to draw correctly. If you use a shape layer (like a Volume), it will not be possible to transform the effect by transforming the layer. Create a Volume from the dockable ScriptUI panel, and hold the ALT/Option key to automatically precomp the new Volume layer.
This plugin adds a "Add spreadsheet layer" entry in "Layer" / "Add new Layer" menu and a corresponding button in the "Layers" toolbar.These two links open the same dialog to load a layer from a spreadsheet file (*.ods, *.xls, *.xlsx) with some options (use header at first line, ignore some rows and optionally load geometry from x and y fields).When this dialog is accepted, it creates a new GDAL VRT file in same folder as the source data file and layer name, expanded with a .vrt suffix which is loaded into QGIS using OGR VRT driver.When reusing the same file twice, the dialog loads its values from the existing .vrt file.No need to install additional dependencies.
Clone tool works across layers, images, and more Our #2 feature request, and another big thing. The clone tool can now work across layers, images, and can even use group or shape layers as a cloning source. If you'd like to reset the origin where the cloning starts, hold down the shift key when clicking. Using this technique, the clone tool can also function as a stamping tool. Keep the shift key held down if you'd like to clone in a straight line. Use the option click to define a new clone source, or just begin drawing. Shift click to reset the clone tool's origin.
The Shape Processor. Acorn has a really great new feature called "Shape Processing". Have you ever wanted to generate a bunch of new shapes, and then arrange them all in a circle and adjust that radius right on the canvas? What about taking all your shapes and re-ordering them from smallest to largest? What if you wanted to take all your shapes and randomly assign each one a new color, and then scatter them around the canvas in a billion different locations? What about pushing all the shapes on your layer out of the way of a giant circle? Well, now you can. Shape Processors are filters for shape layers, which will move and tweak and generate and adjust shapes for you. And best of all, they are non-destructive and stackable (just like Acorn's filters). So you can add a bunch, tweak, save, close, and come back later if you change your mind.
Things that go snap. This is a lot more snapping going on now. Snap to Grid, guides, shapes in layers, other layers, selections, canvas bounds, etc. It was a complete rewrite, there are now global preferences available for fine tuning how you'd like it to work, and we even made those changeable per document.
Non destructive Levels and Curves. Levels and Curves joins all the other non destructive filters- this is pretty awesome. You can use Levels and Curves on shape layers, even combine in the same filters list, tweaking both at the same time, and add a Curves filter multiple times to the same image. I have no idea why you'd do this, but it sounds fun.
We have fixed a rendering issue that sometimes added a white shadow behind bitmap layers in Adobe XD files.We have fixed a bug that appeared when selecting vector shape icons from Figma files in the Inspect mode.We have fixed a snapping issue with design Guides that are close to the edge of the Inspect mode.
The window menus offer an alternative way to performthe actions available from the toolbar described above.They also provide some additional options:Layers menuThis menu repeats the options available in the toolbar from the Control Panel at the bottom of the window; each one adds a new Layer Control of one of the available types to the stack, or Removes () the currently selected control. Export menuThis menu provides some options for exporting graphics and data from the plot to external contexts: Export Plot Saves the visible plot in an image format; see Appendix A.4.2.5. STILTS Command Window Displays a command which can be executed from outside TOPCAT to reproduce the currently visible plot; see Appendix A.4.3.4. Layer Data Import Layer Data Save These two sub-menus may or may not contain options. Some plotted layer types (for instance 1d or 2d histograms) generate table data as part of their calculations that can be exported separately. If one of these layers is currently plotted, then options may appear in these menus. The Import options retrieve the table and add it to the list of tables currently loaded in TOPCAT; the Save options can write the data directly to disk using one of the supported table formats.
When you select a form by clicking on it in the stack,a configuration sub-panel will appear on the right hand side of this panel.This allows you to select style informationto determine the details of how the plot will look for each layer,and sometimes also reports information calculated by the plot.The details differ greatly between forms, but theygenerally contain two sub-panels for defining the style details,Global Style and Subset Styles:Global StyleControls the style details for the chosen form, for instance marker shape and size. Options here affect all subsets, though by default the colour is taken from the Subsets tab. If you want to set the colour the same for all subsets, uncheck the By Subset checkbox which will activate the Colour selector. Subset StylesIf you want to have different subsets represented with different styles, for instance different shapes for different subsets, you can select a subset here and alter style details for that subset only, overriding the Global settings above. The Visible checkbox indicates and controls whether the subset selected for specific configuration is currently visible in the plot.
Operation is as follows:To start marking out a shape, hit the button in the toolbar, and a popup window will first ask you which inclusion mode you want to use. Alternatively, you can use one of the mode-specific sub-menu items in the Subsets|Draw Algebraic Subset menu to choose a mode without the extra popup. Once in drawing mode, the toolbar button will appear with a checkmark over it (), and a little square marker will appear near the mouse pointer as long as it's over a suitable part of the plot. You can then click on the plotting area to mark the points, and the area thus defined (according to the mode you have chosen) will be shaded in grey. Each point you have clicked on to define the area is marked with the little square marker. The algebraic form of the expression for the points entered so far will be displayed at the bottom of the screen. A right-click (or Ctrl-click) will remove the most recently-added point. When you've finished adding points, click on the button again. This will pop up the Multi Algebraic Subset Window, which displays the algebraic function corresponding to the region you have outlined, and offering to create a new subset (or, if there are multiple datasets plotted, several new subsets) from it.
The layer controls are controls in the Control Stackthat can be added, removed andmoved around to determine what layers go to make up the contents of a plot.You can have zero, one or several of each.Which ones are available is dependent on which plot type you are using(for instance the Spectrogram control is only available for the Time plot).Add instances of each control to the control stack by using theappropriate button from the control panel toolbar (the one in the lowerhalf of the window) or the corresponding item in the Layersmenu.
The Position layer control ()is available for all the plot types.Most plots start off with one of these in the stack by default,and you can add a new instance by using theAdd Position Control () buttonin the control panel toolbar,or the corresponding item in the Layers menu.
When first added, the stack contains a single entry, Mark,which plots a marker of a given fixed shape and size.The colour is by default determined by the setting in the Subsets tab.For a simple scatter plot, this is all that you need.However, there are a number of other forms that you can plot as wellor instead of the simple markers - vectors, error bars, ellipses,contours, text labels etc. You add a new form to the stack byclicking on the Forms button,which gives you a menu of all the available forms for the current layer control.You can remove a form by selecting it and selectingthe Remove () button in the same menu.You can also activate/deactivate the entries in the stackwith the checkbox and move them up and down with the drag handle as usual.The list of forms that are avaiable depends on the plot type;the full list is in Appendix A.4.5.
The Pair Position layer control ()allows you to plot symbols linking two positions in the plot spacefrom the same table.You can add one of these controls to the stack by using theAdd Pair Control () buttonin the control panel toolbar,or the corresponding item in the Layers menu.
The Quad Position layer control ()allows you to plot symbols defined by four positions in the plot spacefrom each row of a table - typically some kind of quadrilateral.You can add one of these controls to the stack by using theAdd Quad Control () buttonin the control panel toolbar,or the corresponding item in the Layers menu. 2b1af7f3a8
