i recently acquired Painter 2019 , I want to use it to paint seamless textures for Unity game engine.
After reading the 2019 manual and watching several videos on youtube .. all say that i need to use the " Shift + Space " shortcut to move the pivot/axis? of the picture .. in order to see and repaint the borders to make them seamless ( like this ).
Unfortunately, when i press " Shift + Space ", nothing happens .. same than just pressing Shift..
I have looked in the Shortcut manager and couldnt find where to assign this function either .. i also made sure it was by default too..
i really need this to work .. anybody has any suggestion ?
thank you for your time
Couple of things to check. Before this will work, you must go to the Patterns Control panel and click on the option button. In the drop down be sure to click Define Pattern. This is a toggle, but it doesn't make a check mark next to it...so it is possible to toggle if off without realizing it...the only way to know for sure that the option is on is to move the axis of the picture...more about that next.
OK...if Define Pattern is active, then the shift + space will work...but...only with the canvas layer. If you are working on a layer above the canvas layer and try to use Shift + Space...nothing happens. You will need to drop the layer to the canvas, then you will be able to move the axis of the picture.
You can work exclusively on the canvas...or you can use layers, but to move the axis, they layers must be dropped to the canvas.
I think that is the part you are missing...only the canvas will move. If I am wrong and you are working on the canvas...and it isn't working...let us know.
Hope this helps.
i am working on the canvas .. so that part is good
my Painter interface is in french .. and i dont have Define Pattern .. i have only ;
Define a personal icon
Create a pattern
Inverse the grain
and none of those seems to help .. so it's why i am here
is there a way to switch Language interface in Painter .?
thanks for helping, much appreciated !
To my knowledge, there should be no difference between the French language version and the English Language version except for the language. I believe there is a way to change languages, but i don't know how to do it. My 2019 English for Windows has the following:
Pattern Library Panel
Set Custom Icon
Make Fractal Pattern
Add Image to Library
Check out pattern
I can't imagine these commands are missing from your version. You do not have nine items under the drop down menu?
nope .. only 6 items and 2 of them are greyed out (Capture an icon and Capture a paper)
The two are greyed out because you need to have something selected for them to be active. Sorry, I don't know what to say about the missing command. Can you make a screen capture? I keep thinking there is something simple we are missing.
