And if someone is feeling adventurous Smile he can compile version 3.44.69 from Github and test whether I broke something in there again.

Subject description: Transparency chequerboard backgound adjustable?
 

I have just been using version 3.44.74 to alter an icon that uses transparency and I have been using the ctrl-Lclick to pick pixels of a suitable colour/intensity from one area in order to paste them over other pixels that need changing.

The problem I am having is that I can't be sure if the pixel I am using as the 'donor' has transparency or not - and I seem to be transferring transparency onto places i don't want it. I can't see this when I am working in mtpaint as the chequerboard background partially alters the hue of the pixels that have transparency.

However, I can see it when I eventually use the icon on my desktop and have a solid background colour that shows through.

This is mostly an issue because my icon colours are so similar to the chequerboard colours. Is there any way to change the chequerboard colours to a solid background temporarily so I can immediately see how my icon will look against different background colours?

Alternatively, is there any way I can select a single pixel and see a realtime display of the hue/intensity and transparency of that one pixel before I use it as a donor and ctrl/Lclick it?

(And should I be posting such a question in a different thread?)

Open the view window. Wink It exists for precisely that.
Alternatively, enable "Show all layers in main window", put your desired background image into background layer, and edit your icon in a layer above that.

thank you, that is very handy. Once I switch on the view window the background is mid grey, and I see that I can change the background tone of the view window by altering the "Greyscale backdrop" setting in the "interface" tab of the image preferences - if I change it from the default of '180' and set it to '255' the background becomes fully white and that does help me see the transparency much better - but if there is some way to change the view background to something other than greyscale that will be even better for some of the icons i hope to modify. Is that possible? Would it be possible to add a way to pick the background from a colourwheel maybe?

I always wondered what those numbers meant... Smile
many thanks!

...and on a similar note - is there a way to highlight (select) a single pixel and key in the actual RGB + A value you want that pixel to have?

EDIT - ignore this. I applied my brain cell (only the size of a pixel) and realised I need to manually set the colour and transparency using the colour editor (clicking on the red block that shows the A and B colour) and then use the pencil icon to drop one pixel of that colour in the required spot.

I shall practice this a bit.

Not at the moment. Having it as greyscale allows clearing background with memset() function, instead of an RGB copying loop - maybe not a noticeable speedup on todays' hardware, but I'm too lazy to measure it and make sure of that. Smile
Besides, no real need for that, for the same can be done with layers. A background layer can be cleared to any color - and placed under image layer, it'll show in view window, covering the default background.

New version 3.44.77

I checked the installation of wacom driver and mtpaint handbook
using precise puppy 5.7.1.
Both are fine.

PostPosted: Sun 06 Jul 2014, 05:41    Post subject: Version 3.44.78  

Now with version 3.44.78, transition to V-code is effectively done.
There will be cosmetic changes, and then documenting the V-code itself - but the actual rewrite is finished. 99% of GTK+ calls eradicated from the code outside of V-code interpreter.

Now the question is - which toolkit to use for V-code's second backend?
Because the more I see of GTK+3, the less I like what I see. And now that I can keep any C++ toolkit tamely isolated behind a nice, pure C, wall of V-code APIs - my dislike of C++ doesn't matter that much anymore.

Hi,

I compiled version 3.44.77 for Puli, works fine.

Just one question: How should I configure mtPaint to open with dock visible?

Thanks.

Regards,

gjuhasz

No such option for now, but can be done with a trivial patch. Is pressing "F12" too much work, or what? Wink
