What screen-recorder did you use?

Icecream screen recorder (pro version, about 30€). Previously I used OBS (free), but I had many issues with it - including a not so obvious user interface.

Enjoy!

OK, that is interesting to see. I am tentatively beginning to work a bit with LDPC and this helps a lot to understand.
I am used to working with vectors creating this kind of shapes, but cannot quite grasp it in LDPC.

From V 1.7.0:
New features:
  • Auto-corrections for primitive data when loading a file
Does that mean that primitives are broken down into triangles when reloading the file?
In V1.7.1 it's like this.

Sorry my mistake. Angry

This only happens if the file is saved in V1.7.1 and opened with V1.6.9.


recommended free screen recorder software: Captura - Steffen - 2019-06-12

after long search and testing lots of shitty or expensive screenrecorder
programs, I finally landed at the free tool "Captura", which is
free and just wonderful.

I can warmly recommend it.

I am having difficulties with snapping vertices to the grid.
To put it simply: it does not work for me.
When I draw a triangle that needs to have straight horizontal and vertical lines, the vertices do not snap to where I click.

Is there a way to align vertices?

Which Grid settings Do you use?

Mmhhh... I see no way of NOT snapping on grid. What is your "move snap" value? a very low value could explain problems.
Otherwise, you can align vertices (select them then merge to average (x or y) ). Problem is that it's an average, so you end off grid! I'd prefer that, like rotate, these merge occured on value of nearest to cursor vertex! (hint, hint, Nils Wink )

Standard, I guess. Never changed anything there.

I started my project again and now seems better.
Still learning....
