ofn-preset-guides - Ofnuts - 04-04-2020

Updated an old plugin. It allows you to define sets of guides that you use often to add then to the image with one single action (menu entry and optionally keyboard shortcut).

ofn-preset-guides is here. Enjoy.


RE: ofn-preset-guides - akovia - 04-04-2020

Yet another ofn plugin that should be in the core.
Everything I want from guides in a single plugin. Just took it for a test drive and I can finally trade up from those old scripts.

Many Many thanks!

Ofnuts, I uploaded the new presets guides, made sure it had permissions, etc. It still doesn't show in the Guides menu. What am I missing?


RE: ofn-preset-guides - Ofnuts - 04-28-2020

Did you copy the .ini file with it (or create your own)?

I copied the ini that came with it.

If necessary, just updated the plugin on Sourceforge, problems with the INI file are reported with an error message where the script shoul dhave appeared in the menu.

Updated and still not showing. I'm using Mac Catalina, if that helps any. It's working in Linux.

If on OSX, start Gimp in a terminal, if there are errors they will show there.

I solved the problem: (human error) I inadvertently moved both files into plugins folder, individually. Once I placed the folder in plugins, and moved both files into it, the script worked.
