Graphic Workshop Professional 12 Revision 11





Graphic Workshop Professional 12 has been updated.

In this release:

  • PNG: The PNG reader in Graphic Workshop and its ancillary applications has been updated to correctly handle interlaced PNG graphics with slightly funky code structures... of which there appear to be a substantial number. This is not a security issue, but it will prevent the occasional PNG from looking like a sand painting.

    The PNG reader has also experienced a noticeable speed improvement.

  • Rename: The Graphic Workshop Rename window now includes a thumbnail of the graphic you've right-clicked on or the first graphic in a selected batch to visually confirm what you're about to change the name of.

  • Print: The Graphic Workshop Print window now includes a thumbnail of the graphic you've right-clicked on or the first graphic in a selected batch to visually confirm what you're about to render as hard copy.

  • MP3: A bug that caused the status display to misbehave when MP3 documents were written by Graphic Workshop has been disabused of its bad attitude.

  • Audio: A bug in the audio visualization logic, that created waveform plots of sound documents, has been addressed.

  • Icon Editor: The Graphic Workshop Icon Editor UltraLight application has has a number of issues addressed. Its Eyedropper tool now correctly works with the first row of pixels in a graphic. Ctrl-A now reliably selects an entire document. An issue that caused the alpha masks of transformed image fragments to display incorrectly in some cases is history. A bug that crashed the Resize window has been stomped. A Windows problem that caused a number of unpredictable behaviors when objects were drawn or dragged to the outermost column or row of pixels in a graphic under some configurations of Windows has been dealt with.

  • Filters: The Filters window in Graphic Workshop and e-Paint UltraLight has been updated to address a number of cosmetic problems.

  • Gradient: The Gradient section window that turns up in various places in Graphic Workshop and its ancillary applications has been updated to address a problem that prevented the center coordinates of a gradient from being set to negative values under some configurations of Windows.

  • e-Paint UltraLight: A bug in the tool palette window of e-Paint UltraLight that caused only the right half of example brushes to be displayed has been addressed.

If you haven't experienced Graphic Workshop Professional 12 as yet, please see its initial release announcement for a list of all its new and enhanced functionality.
