  1. HI everybody! We had a few issues this week. I've been behind the scenes working to secure both Laughingbird Software and the Web Graphics Creator sites. I've done it and everything should be working smoothly now. If you're not able to see The Web Graphics Creator in full, try Logging out, then clearing your cache: https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/32050?co=GENIE.Platform%3DDesktop&hl=en If you had troubles downloading your Laughingbird downloadable software, that's working now as well. Try once more: https://www.laughingbirdsoftware.com/members My humble apologies for the troubles. I had to do this, so it's better for us all - but it did cause a little chaos on the backend - Marc

    Unable to export picture

    HI there @Charles Scarlatta IV Thanks for posting.This bizarre error happens to me as well. It is a bug, but for the life of me I can't figure out how it happens. I can't ever replicate it to test - it just ... happens. The solution is to quite (force quite if you have to) the software.Then, open your documents folder on your computer. You'll see another folder called "laughingbird Documents" remove this folder (just drag it to your desktop. Don't delete it)Then, launch the Logo Creator again.(it will create a brand new EMPTY Laughingbird Documents folder - you won't have any logos or graphics)Create something on the canvas. Text, and import an image (use the FILE > IMPORT menu option and find any graphic you may have on your computer).Now, Export this image directly to your desktop.It'll work fine.THEN! Exit out of the software again and put the Laughingbird Documents folder back into the Documents folder (you can replace the 'empty' LB folder. No worries)The software should work again.Let me / us know!

    From Bella Vids

    I loved this look and feel... and the story Bella told about the graphic in the Laughingbird Group ----- My G-Pa made this the other day, I asked him why it was so dark and creepy? He replied when he was a gunner on a helicopter he was issued one gold coin, whenever they flew a mission they, pilots and flight crew, had to carry it. If something happened to them, they could pay their way to the other side. He no longer flys, but he still believes in this superstition. He also played the song they would listen too, kinda creepy.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8kNwvIEQsg0 -----
  10. This was a pretty cool effect. Myles Hup in the Laughingbird Facebook Group created a 3D image from a flat square:

    Can't Select Objects

    Hi @TexasZman and @Shori Thanks for posting here in the forum. First, let's make sure you're using the latest version of The Creator (v7.2.9). You can see what version you're using when you pull down the ABOUT menu. You can update here if you're not seeing v7.2.9:https://www.laughingbirdsoftware.com/updates/If you ARE using v7.29, then here's the scoop with the software: You need to actually click on the image. Sounds silly, I know - but the software is programmed so that the mouse touches a 'pixel' If you click in the hole of the letter 'A' for example, you'll be selecting the image UNDERneath the 'A' Make sense? I've tried to fix this - but, it's based on a pixel touch. So let's see if this makes a difference.As for the slowness you mention Shori, that's not good. I haven't experienced this. Do you have a lot of other apps open? So, both of you check for now - make sure you're running version 7.2.9 and post back here if you can Marc
