  1. Thanks for the feedback! One note: the TextPE effect is there to make upgrades of Pixel Editor sequences easier (it is 100% backward compatible). Any changes. such as this one, would be made to the Text effect. As a workaround, you can always create text that has a line break between each letter. Matt
  2. This issue will be fixed in the next release. Thanks for pointing it out! Matt
  3. Phil, Thanks for your thoughtful feedback - it is much appreciated. We design the dialogs and menus so that they are displayed correctly on a standard laptop screen (1366x768 pixels). If you right-click on the sequence grid in the S4 Sequence Editor, the menu overflows the screen on such a laptop. That is why the timing commands were moved down a level in S5. We will look at ways to perhaps make that configurable in a future version. Matt
  4. Here are few ideas: 1) Check your display driver. If you are running Intel-based graphics, then you can try the Intel Driver and Support Assistant, which can sometimes locate newer drivers than are included with Windows. https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/detect.html This is the most likely cause. 2) If #1 doesn't help, then create a help desk ticket (http://helpdesk.lightorama.com/) and attach 2 files: a) the Sequencer's trace/log file: "\Documents\LORSequencer-trace.txt" b) the Preview file - there is a small possibility that something in your Preview file is causing a problem at startup: "\Documents\Light-O-Rama\CommonData\LORPreviews.xml" Matt
  5. The following presentation talks about setting up the Pixel Tree kit with the S4 Pixel Editor, but it is much the same in the S5 Sequencer. http://www1.lightorama.com/PDF/PEwithPixelTree16x25-RevA.pdf Matt
  6. We hope to get that in for the next release.
  7. That function is for pixel-based props. It makes a copy of the prop, and the new prop utilizes the "advanced shape". With an advanced shape you can move each individual pixel as needed by dragging them on the design canvas. You can also change how the pixels are arranged in the effects buffer by clicking the "Edit Advanced Buffer Layout" button. As the name implies, this is is an advanced function, but can be used to create pixel props that cannot be represented by other shapes. Matt
  8. 20 MB is definitely overkill. Anything from 100 KB to 2 MB should be ok.
  9. Does this page help? http://www1.lightorama.com/downloads/5.2.2/help/concept_effects.htm Matt
  10. Thanks for pointing it out! It will be fixed in the next release. Matt
  11. Using the S5 windows is documented here: http://www1.lightorama.com/downloads/5.2.2/help/customizing_window_layouts.htm Matt
  12. The next production release of S5 is in the planning stages. No firm date yet. Matt
  13. Thank you @Denny H for making your files available. The problem with the clipboard files will be fixed in the next S5 release. Matt
