Pencil Portable 0.4.2b Pre-release 6 (Testers needed)

Here's another with a proper splash. It will also probably be the last pre-release before proper release. And now, for the feature presentation...

Pencil Portable is the popular Pencil graphics editor and 2D animator packaged in a portable format. It lets you create cartoon animation using both vector and bitmap formats. Plus, it leaves no personal information behind on the machine you run it on, so you can take your graphics editor wherever you go.

Pencil Portable 0.4.2b Pre-release 6

Pre-release 5: help.html update.
Pre-release 6: Qt registry keys now deleted.

Icon

How come the 32px icon looks like someone chewed on the pencil? Blum

Nervous

I bet Ryan was a bit nervous while creating the portable app, he starting chewing at the icon. Hahaha. Blum

Donation Button

You're using the donation button from OSK Portable. If you use the one from the help file in one of the newer test apps like DOSBox, it's a generic one for "PortableApps.com's development and hosting" which we'll be using for all apps from now on.

File type,

Okay I've made a image. But know I've tried to save to any file type I can think of, and none of them seem to work. There are no suggestions in the save file dialog. What are you supposed to save to?

Dunno

Just try something like .pen or .pcl
AFAIK, it doesn't need an extension.

With a new pencil (one that has not been chewed on).

Still chewy

I sent you an icon via email.

Keep in mind that the appicon.ico and icon in the launcher should have:

16x16 - 256 color
16x16 - Win XP
32x32 - 256 color
32x32 - Win XP
48x48 - 256 color
48x48 - Win XP

Did you miss that one?

Haha, more like...

18 sub keys. Blum

And I think it could be a problem that they point to the drive letter. This app may take more work than you thought Ryan, the keys are:

-Trolltech
 -Organization Defaults
  -Qt Factory Cache 4.2
   -com.trolltech.Qt.QImageIOHandlerFactoryinterface:
    -F:
     -PortableApps
      -PencilPortable
       -App
        -pencil
         -plugins
          imageformats
  -Qt Factory Cache 4.2. False
    -F:
     -PortableApps
      -PencilPortable
       -App
        -pencil
         -plugins
          imageformats

Hmmm? :S

Edit: Check out John's aMSN Portable launcher script, it's got the same kinda plugins setup.

Hmm

I'm pretty sure I knew about that, but it must have slipped past. It's a Qt thing, not a Pencil thing. Does aMSN use Qt?

I unno.

It's just aMSN has pluggins adjusted to the drive letter, so John adjusts the drive letter.

Ah.

I know what you mean, but it's going to be considerably harder to do, because it uses registry keys instead of files. I may just delete the whole registry key instead.

Whoa...

Plus, it leaves no personal information behind on the machine you run it on, so you can take your graphics editor wherever you go.

Liessss! I want a refund!

P.S. Don't worry, apparently John's not perfect either.

Lazy. :P

Or, if keys are only stored in the last entry? Are they? Backup the original keys, let the new keys import when the program starts, replace the last keys after the drive letter, export the keys on close, delete the tree structure, put the local keys back. Follow? Biggrin

Oops, I did a reply, hit login, turn in to a comment reply. Sorry.

Edit: Also, you could rename the key to the current drive letter. Still hard. Blum

.

Check the latest version. It backs up the key, deletes it once done and then restores the key.

Good Stuff

Downloaded and tried it out. Works very well and is quite fast.

Only little nibble I have is that when the program is open, the logo for it is not displayed in the title bar.

I know

It's because I made the icon myself for the portable version. I'll send an email to the author to see if he wants to use it before hacking it in myself.

Abandoned?

Has this project been left? I would really like to see this fully functional and up d:

Currently I have had some issues with the fill bucket but maybe thats just the actual program.
