Minor updates - 17 Dec 2019

Phantasm v5.0.3
Texturino v2.0.4
VectorScribe v4.0.7
  • New feature: The Dynamic Shapes panel now includes the menu item Duplicate Shape and Reverse Slice, which, when chosen with a sliced shape selected, makes a copy of the shape and reverses the slice in one step.
  • New shortcuts: Option/Alt-clicking on the Dynamic Shapes start slice angle panel icon, reverses a slice. Shift+Option/Alt-clicking on the same icon duplicates the shape and reverses the slice.

  • New feature: The PathScribe panel now includes the actionable menu item Close Path (Smooth Curve), which closes an open path by making the curve between the endpoints smooth (similar to the SubScribe plugin's Connect tool).
  • Improvement: The PathScribe panel's Add Points at Tangencies / Move Points to Tangencies and related menu items are now actionable.
  • Bug fix: PathScribe's ghost handle annotations are now slightly thicker, to match InkScribe's.
  • Bug fix: When dragging a Dynamic Shapes slice with the Option/Alt key held down, and slice linking was previously set in the panel, the cursor annotation now correctly states that the slices will be unlinked.
VectorFirstAid v3.0.3
  • Bug fix: Objects with no stroke and a Freeform Gradient fill are no longer erroneously considered to be "unpainted".
