In Photo-Paint X7 when I click on the cottonbud icon, the circle outline appears but nothing changes on the photo as I left-click and move it across the image. Running Windows10.
Has anyone else experienced this?
It used to work fine - but stopped suddenly. I have tried re-installing X7 suite several times, but no success in overcoming this.
Not sure why, but this issue came shortly after I also experienced a problem exporting images as .jpg. I subsequently found a solution to the export, but not the Effect Tool malfunction.
Would be grateful for any tips/work-arounds, as I haven't seen any similar posts on this problem in any forums.
Check property bar to see if you are in a merge mode other than Normal
try effecting a flattened image with no masks. if it works there, then check objects and masks on your other main image.
Hi Jeff, Thanks for your fast reply.
No - the property bar is in 'Normal' mode. The image is a simple photo (no masks). The Effect icon is active, and the circle outline is ready to apply the custom smear/smudge - but nothing happens.
I will attempt to attach a screenshot of my workspace so you can see what is active.
seems in order
noticed transparency set at zero - I think that means full effect from memory
if you tried various effect tools and none work, then you may have to try pressing F8 during launch to reset to factory defaults
I tried re-setting with F8 during launch, but not successful. Nothing appears to work. I have uninstalled, and re-installed. Wondering if the problem will disappear if I upgrade to newer PhotoPaint version?
What's your view?
