1. New Software Notice alert!

    The new Web Graphics Creator (version 4.0) will be out soon.

    For now, version 3.0 is still active and works great on most Windows machines. It no longer runs on Macs using Lion or greater... (but the new version will fix this)

    So hang in there! It's almost done!

    eGreetings,

    Is there a way to save the completed project in 3D mode in the Photo Realistic Module?

    So that if you need to come back to it another time. Say you want to just update the back or save it as another view.

    Thank you for your time and assistance. :thankyou:

    Kind Regards,
    Jeri

    Hi Jeri!

    When a box has been set to the exact position you want - right click over it! (Mac users with one mouse button: Option-click).

    You'll see one of the menu options is "Save Screenshot".
    This will work only during the current session.

    I'm working on a way to get this saved to a text file for later 'retreval'

    Sorry about this one Jeri.
    There's no good way to save the box angle - yet.

    Marc,
    About that saving as a text file; if i don't specify the output file type (.png/.jpg etc) when doing a screenshot, the saved file is a .txt file. isn't that what you are looking for?

    Hey there MD!

    Nope. that's not quite was I was referring to.

    ( What MasterD is speaking about above:
    If you don't physically type in an extension when saving (Clicking on the camera icon in the PhotoRealistic section), you'll get the saved file as a "text" file. ...Make sure you type in an extension: ".jpg", ".gif", ".bmp" etc. )

    (I'll fix this).

    What I mean above:
    Jeri wants the ability to save the angle of the box and later "open" this saved box angle. Currently, there's no way to do this and have the save permantant. (However, if you're testing a few angles while using the PhotoRealistic portion, you can save multiple angles and go back to them.)

    I need a way to export some sort of text file with 'coordinates'.
