As a longtime user of PSE7, I've finally upgraded to PSE(18)2020. My goal is to design cakes with this software, but I'm having issues working in the Expert mode and layers. First issue is with a blank (white) page and the eliptical tool. I can put a oval on the page and it will keep an outline until I click off to add another layer/oval above or below and the previous layer will disappear. If I click off and around the blank layer, it will change to the previous layer in the layer panel, but nothing shows up. I then tried it with adding a graphic background, and the ovals show up, but the outline disappears. So how do I change the line color for the eliptical tool? I've used PSE7 for many years working with layers, photos, text, and creating logos that I've added to the photos. This has me baffled. Fran
I'm not exactly sure what you mean. Are you talking about using the Eliptical Marqee tool or the Elipse Shape tool? Can you give us some screenshots to show your problem.
If you use the Elliptical Marquee Tool, the outline that you see ("marching ants") does not reflect pixels that remain when you drag out another ellipse on the same layer or on another layer.
If you wish to cement the ellptical outline, drag out the ellipse, then go to Edit>stroke(outline)selection. In the dialog that comes up you can define the width of the stroke & color. Invariably I position the stroke inside,
