Re: Browser thumbnails not refreshing

I cannot reproduce the phenomenon on my iMac. The thumbnails disappear when I choose the trash icon and rotate when I choose the right or left rotate icon.
Mojave and GC both up to date.

Re: Analyze button requires GC 10.13 - can't find this version.

I assume this refers to OSX 10.13, not GC 10.13?

Re: [Solved] Rectangle selection problem

Thank you. My old keyboard just has "esc" on that key.

But now I know, the significance of the symbol is clear!

Re: [Solved] Rectangle selection problem

The one at the very bottom enables you to select one of quite a number of aspect ratios for the square marquee selection tool; somehow I had inadvertently change it from "...

[Solved] Re: GC 10.5.2 Beta Build 2902

1. I downloaded and opened this and it complained that MacOS had deleted or mislaid the Preferences. It offered to rebuild them, and on acceptance appears to have done so correctly. But is this normal? And are there some old preference files left around in my Library? 2. The download appears to be 2...

Re: New (and unwanted) dialog

Thanks - sorted!

[Solved] New (and unwanted) dialog

Since a few weeks back, I have been seeing a new dialog in the following situation: 1. Scan an item in a magazine using TWAIN. 2. Select the item using <command><option>E and copy. 3. Expand the window using canvas size to just over twice the height. 4. Paste bottom centered. I get a dialog (see att...
