    Fluid Mask for SignLab Yes, I've been through the vertustech videos myself. Worthwhile to watch and absorb, though the videos require a bit more polishing. By no means do I mean to disparage the Fluid Mask tools. For SignLab 8 users that are wondering about Fluid Mask included with SignLab...

    OpenType Letterhead fonts in SignLab 7.1 If I understand you correctly, the following events occurred: 1. Back in perhaps late 2004, you upgraded to SignLab 7.0, which had support for TrueType fonts. 2. This was fine because, at the time, Letterhead fonts were in TrueType format. 3. A...

  12. Anyone using Sign Lab?

    Amazed by replicator's response Wow wee! Thought I'd grab my lunch and poke around signs101. I'm astonished by your response, Marc. If it weren't for the change in your avatar image, I would have thought your signs101 account had been hijacked. Unfortunately, it appears this business has ruined...

  15. Anyone using Sign Lab?

    SignLab 8 and Visual Production Manager I saw this thread before and couldn't say anything because SignLab 8 wasn't officially released yet. SignLab 8 has been released with GIMP (i.e., spirit) image editing tools that are comparable to PhotoShop. Further, we've developed GIMP...

    Typing precise values versus dragging with mouse I think it's a matter of design preference. In AutoCAD, it is common to approach design from an engineering perspective, where you type precise values for the size and placement of shapes. Compare this with graphics-oriented software, where you...
