software OS4   software OS4 : SketchBlock 1.4 Out.
   posted by broadblues on 11-Apr-2012 0:32:35 (971 reads)
SketchBlock 1.4 has been available on os4depot for the last 24hours or so, but I've been busy in the studio all day so couldn't post a news item till now...

New in this release:

Many additional layer manipulation functions including:
Flatten Project
Merge Visible
Colour To Alpha
Toggling The Alpha State Of Layers
Import images as a layers via datatypes
And More ...





The Layers List has a icon to display whether or not a layer is transparent or not

Input Wedges
Scripts can be defined and set to listen to input events enabling interractive functionality to be added without need to write full plugins. Two examples, Rexx/Wedges/wedge_lines.rexx and Rexx/Wedges/wedge_boxes.rexx are provided. these add the ability to draw lines and boxes....
Tool Presets have been extended an now support switching tool, and the creation script supports the erase tool.

Many additional ARexx Commands to support the above features.

New default menus

Menu now update autmatically if the prefs file is modified, which enables dynamic addition of new presets etc.

Get it from: Os4Dept

Quality !

Better and better with every release.

@Andy
How hard will be to implement smooth resizing via menu item ? Maybe already possible ? It can be pretty good for making icons as well. I sometime feedup with all the other aos4 icon related tools which half-of-work, half-of-good , and will be really nice to just use sketch for everything :)

This is really a promising piece of software. I lack a paint program in active
development like Lunapaint once was.

Is it possible to port this to AROS too ? I'd very much like to try it out and perhaps
give you my feedback if it would be any value to you.

@manu
Sources included in archive, but they all reaction based. I.e. need to impove opensource version of reaction (which Salas00 starts some time ago), and then :)
