  1. You are great with plugins.

    Please, can you start another plugin for creating custom guides interactively, with the ability for user to determine number of guides, orientation and spacing while they update on-canvas in real-time. I guess a combination of vertical and horizontal orientation would be nice.

    I like how user interaction is done with the shape creator.

    Thanx again.

  2. with Crossed corners could a option be added to have the corners inside the frame

    • Hi, really all the corners are inside the selection, for make the corners outside the solution is use Shrink/Grow in the Selection tab

      • The corners are inside the selection which is OK but the strokes joining the corners are inside the selection, I was referring to having these strokes along the edge of the selection.

        • Hi, in this case you can set for the field Shrink/Grow the same value used in the field Size, i will consider for future versions the option of selecting between internal or external

  3. I have installed the shapes creator but I can’t find it in the menu. Can anybody tell me in which menu I can find the shapes creator?

    • Hi Teddy, if you installed correctly the scrips you can call the plugin in the “Filter>Path menu>Path shape creator…”

  4. How do you install these plugins.

  5. These are very nice plug-ins, thank you
