Anyway there are 3 ways you can rotate an image: you can freehand turn using the turning handle, you can also rotate it in 45degree increments and go back to any point by selecting edit, click on any circle the surrounds the larger circle in the rotate section of the edit tool box or you can enter manually in the box and use the up/down arrows to turn 1degree at a time.

Hope this helps


Thanks, Olivia for explaining the 3 ways to rotate an image. :)

You are correct that there should be what is called "constraint"....... where the user can hold a key down and an object will rotate in 45 degree increments, a line will draw at 90 degrees, an object will size proportionately. That has been basic to all design software since MacPaint 30 years ago. Because features basic to design software are missing, it makes a basic task very time consuming. Computers users have come to expect these basic features to be there........ and to be available in the constant manner from software to software.

In every graphic software I have ever used, If i want to line up 3 squares vertically, all I have to do is select the 3 squares and use the alignment function to align all the objects selected. This is why I have asked you to look at other software (all which is free to try), because it's difficult to know what is missing from DeSpace and to discuss it when you don't know what other software has. It wasn't to convert you..... it was to give you a basis for comparison.


I have worked in other graphics softwares (or other softwares, e.g., PowerPoint, Scrapbook Deluxe, etc.) that have these things, too. That's why I know it's out there and why I know Design Space is not anything near what I have worked in before. I know you are talking about more sophisticated stuff than what I'm used to, but I do know that CDSPACE is NOT near what any of the other things I have worked in...including CCR. I know we're talking about different types of programs but I think we're all recognizing the same things we need/want in this software.

I know you're not trying to convert me....you're trying to get me to broaden my horizons...which I've not been willing to do, as yet. I am getting interesting in more and more things because of what I think the EXPLORE might do for me in the future (things I've thought I would like to try); but, once again, what we have with the EXPLORE is CDSPACE. CDSPACE Is not cutting it! Thank goodness we do have other avenues to explore with the EXPLORE and our own computers/printers in the near future. BUT, I WILL NEVER BE HAPPY WITH CDSPACE until PC gets serious about what we want....and, I don't think they care at all.

While it was a good explanation (what Olivia said to us about rotating things), it wasn't what I was talking about exactly.

I'm not sure I posted this picture on here, but I will now. When you are using the "turning tool" or the other tools Olivia mentioned, it is extremely difficult (after you have turned an image yourself because there is no stopping point as you are turning your image, so sometimes you are stopping it "off" the line you want to get to because you have to eyeball EVERYTHING and 99% of the time, you have NO grid lines/ruler to use until you go off what you're working on to go to the right and scroll all the way up and go all the way to the bottom to scroll all the way left and THEN click on the square to get your grid lines back........by then you don't even remember what you're trying to do.....but, when you finally click on something to try to finalize what you want to do....ALAS....the ruler and grid lines are GONE again.

Sorry, but while I appreciate Olivia's information on three ways to rotate (which I already knew but maybe others didn't and Olivia has reinforced this for them), it was not what I was trying to get at. I'm not very good at explaining things, but this was not helping me.

WHEN WILL PC GIVE US A CONSTANT RULER AND GRIDLINES ON OUR MATS???? THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT TO ME....and, I suspect it is very important to others.

DOES PC REALLY WANT US TO BE ABLE TO DESIGN IN CDSPACE?

I know you won't come back to answer this.....it feels like I already know the answer. I hope I don't, though. I hope PC really does care about many of us who would like to be able to do a lot more in CDSPACE than we can at this point.

I'm happy for those who are happy with it the way it is.....but, it won't hurt them if PC goes even further to make more of us happier.

Char if your pens are alcohol based then you need to try the alcohol & if they're water based try water. It should say somewhere on your marker pkg. what base they were made with.

Here's some tips I found on dried up markers..

Maybe it will work, sure looks like it does.

I have been asking for this and a user's manual since day one along with being able to set preferences.

Like Cindy, I went from using my Expression/Gypsy to the Explore. I have only been disappointed once, so far with the Explore, and that was yesterday. I was cutting out the AG butterflies card, and it ripped up some of the butterflies. I absolutely love the writing and scoring, but I guess I better check all of my pens now. I only used about 3 of them and I have both sets. I can't really say that I love or hate CD yet. I've made several cards that were pre-made, so I haven't done a lot from scratch yet. It is sometimes frustrating though to figure out the different features.
