Dry-checkbox Toggle script

Post by Svengali » 26 May 2009, 01:54

With the TOOLS:Dry-checkbox checked, you can depress the stylus switch (right click)and draw to erase any pixels on the screen. After the Dry-checkbox is unchecked, only new lines drawn on the screen can be erased with the stylus switch, but any pixels that existed before unchecking the Dry-checkbox will NOT erase. For me, this option has become part of my drawing style and I used it quite frequently.

Since I couldn't find any keyboard shortcut to toggle the TOOLS:Dry-checkbox and since it's such a handy parameter to use when drawing I decided to write a little script that works as a toggle. But simply putting it in your George folder and assigning it to a new button means that you'll just be clicking the button instead of the check box - so no clicks are saved.

However, once assigned to a new button in an existing button set, the Dry-checkbox toggle becomes available as a shortcut command, assignable to a key (I use the backslash). Handy, since it works with MOST of the drawing tools (except Text)!

Thanks. it's useful.
It should, in fact, exist as shortcut in TVP natively.

as well, talking about drawing style, can you post some of your work?
I'm intrigued.

cheers.

Thanks Sven, nice little tool ! 8)

btw, is it free for anyone here ? and if yes, why not in the Contents Sharing section,
like your previous (TweenLoop + Outline Cutbrush) tools ?

M,
Yes, I think it would be good to have a Dry-toggle shortcut option added on the next update... And at some point soon I'll post a link to some of my drawing slide-shows.

Z,
Of course free to all! Maybe the moderator will be kind enough to move this to Content Sharing forum?

Sven
