Set Default Parameters

Here you can set some of the defaults for the work in the LineArt module. Click the icon, and the dialogue for setting the parameters opens.

Coordinates refer to

With these two buttons you set whether the coordinate origin for objects is the start of the page or the start of the current vector graphic frame. In the first case, the Page start coordinate origin is in the upper left corner of the current document page. If the button Frame start is selected, the origin point lies at the upper left corner of the active vector graphic frame.

Béziers per circle

The value in this field specifies the number of Bézier curves that will be used to make up a circle. LineArt usually uses four or eight Bézier curves. Some programs need a large number of Bézier curves per circle. In that case, increase this value before you import external vector data from other programs.

Lines per object

This value specifies the maximum number of lines in a path object. Generally you will get along with the preset value of 256. Increase the value if the path objects are not shown correctly (usually when using data from other programs, or after faulty vectorisation), or if it is no longer possible to work on the path in the path editor.

Curves per object

This value specifies the maximum number of curves in a path object. Generally you will get along with the preset value of 512. Increase the value if the path objects are not shown correctly (usually when using data from other other programs, or after faulty vectorisation), or if it is no longer possible to work on the path in the path editor.

Blend colours

This value specifies how many colour stages LineArt uses to show colour blends on the screen - independently of the number of colour stages for the printout. If you have a slow computer, use a smaller value here if possible (e.g. "8"), in order to achieve a faster page redraw.

Apply colour to groups

Here you can set whether, during a colour blend process, all objects belonging to the group are to be included in the blend, or whether the group is not to be changed as group object.

Apply colour to protected objects

This check box will set whether objects which are protected are allowed a colour change or not. If this function is selected, then any changes to the filling colours, as well as changes to the line attributes, are applied to the respective protected objects, as well as to all other objects.

With one click on the [OK] button, the settings are locked and the new parameters are transferred to the LineArt module.

[Cancel] causes all changes which were made in this dialogue to be ignored, and the parameters that existed before calling this module are restored.
