This is the effect of the new SMOOTH property. It has been designed for roller coasters, but turned out to work surprisingly well for handwritten texts!

michiel....question:

I have the Ultimate edition and I'm sure you know that my skills are low with BT.

I count heavily on using some of the demo shows and adapting them for my use.

If I do this upgrade will it change them or leave them intact???

Thank you sir,
Sarge

Thank you all!

SMSgtRod, yes the installer reverts, deletes and adds files in the installation folder. For this reason you should never mix your personal files with the installation files. This is true for all apps, not just BluffTitler.

Microsoft wants you to place your personal files in the C:\Users folder. For this reason the default save folder of BluffTitler is C:\Users\[YOUR NAME]\Documents\BluffTitler\Shows. This is for Windows 10, on other versions of Windows this is slightly different. The File dialog has APP and PERSONAL buttons in the upper right corner to quickly switch between the installer and personal files.

In case you have saved your own work in the installation folder I advise you to make a backup copy of the BluffTitler/Media/Shows folder before running the installer.

Great, great, great.....and a humble question:
Is there a possibility to enlarge the amount of bevel??
I found that the depth of the halfpipe can made larger or smaller with the pen size, second slider.

This is not yet possible. Thank you for your request!

What I was getting at was, with the up grade version will the demo shows remain the same?

If not, I can grab them and store a copy in another file where they will remain available.

If the newer version has the same exact demo shows then it doesn't concern me as all will remain the same.

Thank you sir

@SMSgtRod

If the demo shows are unchanged they will be deleted and put back again with the same shows and some extra shows.

If you have changed the shows and saved them with the same name on the same place C:\Outerspace Software\BluffTitler\Media\Shows then those changes will be lost. (App)

When you change a demo show or make a show it is wise to same them in Documents\BluffTitler\Shows (Personal)

Good luck with this new update.

This is fantastic, and much better. Thank you Michiel.

@komies......thank you buddy that was the question.

When I use a demo I always save it as a new file on a different drive, leaving the demo intact.

That way I still have the original demo and my version. But if the update was going to delete some of my favorite demos that I use for a base, I'd save them to that drive also. I guess what I should be doing is copying all the demos that I use to that drive and not have to worry about it.

For everything I do I have a master drive and two back up drives....over 32TB.....cause I'm paranoid!! LOL
Thanks again,
Sarge
