Re: ungroup hatch from shape

Thanks! Just experimenting with some of my other hatches; it's just a few for which it doesn't work, but then I can use Attr>Hatch Settings to take care of it.

ungroup hatch from shape

For what seems like forever, I could do "convert to object" on any hatched shape and it would separate the hatch from the shape so I could delete the shape and be left with just the hatch. At that point, I could assign a different line weight to the hatch, and if I moved it to a different layer, it ...

the most inconsequential question ever

I only ask because I like putting stuff in order: I have my most common drawing templates stored in the Stationery folder, but when I create a new drawing, they come up in random order. Is there a way to re-order the stationery in the New Document window?

Re: transparent background in PDF

I tried Trace for a couple days and will likely go back and learn it for other things. But what I'm doing now is a pen-and-ink rendering style that demands crispness, which Concepts does well. Also really liking GoodNotes as a simple PDF markup device, like correcting drawings. I've hard good things...

Re: transparent background in PDF

Thanks so much, Huc! I'm sure that's it; total newbie to Concepts and had no idea what that button was for. One really frustrating thing so far about Concepts is the inability to easily draw guidelines that are precisely vertical or horizontal. I was hoping to be able to bring in a client's drawing,...

Re: transparent background in PDF

Greg, I'm opening the PDF in Concepts on my iPad, where it has a white background. Every layer beneath it is invisible. I've sorta solved it by lowering the transparency so I can see through, but it would be great to know how to make it entirely transparent. FWIW, Concepts is vector-based, so it's n...

transparent background in PDF

I want to create a PDF with everything except the lifework transparent; any idea how? There's mention in the print dialog box of transparent layers, but that's all I'm immediately seeing.
