I checked the FAQ.........

I just don't get it........

How do i use hide contour in DeSpace???

I click the button and it looks like contours are hidden...... but as soon as i click the mat, the graphic reverts back to the original form and contours are no longer hidden.

Also how do i just choose one section at a time? When i clicked hide contour....... all contours were hidden.

TIA

I don't know if this will help but if you go to CapadiaDesigns.com and scroll down away you will find a posting about using Contour in Design Space. She gives excellent directions.

You just click on a cut you do not want cut then click back on the mat. It usually has to be like a hole or the outer edge and leave a hole. By hole I mean a little line usually can not be hidden.

Melody, are you saying that Hide Contour only works with a closed shape........ i.e. a circle......... but won't work with a wavy line?? I got the closed figures hidden but it takes a million clicks to hide a wavy line and it's section by section of the line segment....... It can be done, but it's painful.

Thanks for your quick response........ I was hoping it was user error.......... I can stop hitting my thumb with the hide contour hammer :-)))

I guess I am not having a problem........ it just won't hide the contours I want to hide Mad Mad Mad Mad

I said that because there are those little marks, I am not sure it will work on. Or they are hard to grab. I would zoom in all the way and that will make it easier.

GracefulGrammar.....I'm just curious what you are working with. While I have had problems with other things, I have not had problems with HIDE CONTOUR. To me, it has worked the same way it always worked in CCR.

It didn't revert back when I placed it on the mat.....it came back the way I wanted it with certain parts hidden.

Perhaps there's a problem with the particular image you're working with? I would be happy to try to hide contour of what you're working with to see if I get the same results you are getting.

I am trying to hide contour for open paths, i.e. a wavy line........ The closed paths, i.e. a circle hide contour just fine. The lines in question are from this layer in the "free to try this week beer graphic" I couldn't get the line segments to close without a great deal of clicking. Sure give it a try, I would like to know how your efforts go. Thank you

ETA....... It was completely ungrouped when i tried..........

They are fiddly to select... Even enlarged and zoomed... It could do with a Next & Previous option like there is on the Gypsy.

Is this something you downloaded to your computer and then pulled into CDSPACE?

I haven't heard of FREE TO TRY THIS WEEK in CDSPACE.

The "cut it free for a week" images are available in both Design Space and CCR. The beer glass is one of the images in the St. Patricks images that are this week's freebie.

How do we know where to see the FREEBIE for the week; I haven't seen anything about it.

I'll go do a search....just wondered how we know "up front" what the FREEBIE is; I guess I will know by going to CCR after the 25,000 images carts are taken out after three months.

Thanks for any easier way to know about the FREEBIE of the week.

Is this what you're wanting the green image to look like?

Since I'm going out of the MBs in a little bit, just thought I would share how I got the little lines out. I didn't make the image any bigger; just merely slid the cursor over each line until it turned dark and then clicked on them. Once I went out and SAVED, the lines stayed off the mug.

Yes, the small line segments are much easier to hide....... the longer lines can't be hidden with one click.

Thanks, Narelle, if it's fiddly for you then it's a problem, not user error. Thanks for the confirmation.

I was able to get rid of the other lines in about five clicks.

I did have to ENLARGE the mug to get ONE of the smalles lines left (the fifth click). SO, if you enlarge everything together and then get rid of the lines and go back and resize everything....does that work for you?

It didn't seem that hard to do on my screen.

You still have lines left to hide........ thanks for trying..... Narelle and Melody confirmed that the open paths are fiddly to hide. They have confirmed that it isn't user error..... you don't need to mess with it any more. Thanks for trying to help.

If you mean the lines of the soda lines....I just hid them in about seven clicks. They weren't hard to hide, either.

Some of us have problems with some things and others with other things....but, I didn't find them fiddly to hide at all.

Yep, that's why these things are referred to as bugs........ intermittent and take time to track down........
