I was 20 minutes into a two hour “burn” on the GF. I noticed that one of my layers was a cut instead of the engrave I wanted. I selected and changed it and was elated that the GF engraved this layer, even after the burn was rendered and the burn started!!!
I was impressed that I could make this change, really impressed!!!
One of my layers I had made an engrave, got converted to a cut, but was still labeled as an engrave.
The Strangely Ugly
While this file was rendering (plus others previously), the UI would cycle rapidly between three screens; the ‘File Rendering’ screen, the ‘Dismiss’ screen and the main UI screen that shows all my files. This three-screen-cycle would happen about a half dozen times, each screen being displayed about 3 seconds on my computer before jumping to the next screen. After stopping, it could be on any one of the three screens. Strangly, the file would be loaded and ready to burn.
Anyone else have this happen???
I will post this to Problems and Support if it continues or has been common to other GF people.
Here is a photo of the file. The map neatline in blue was converted from an engrave to a cut. The border around Washtenaw County was the layer I converted from a cut to an engrave after the burn started.
I didn’t think it could be done either, but it happened, so I posted it.
Just tried it again with a different file with a three hour run time and it didn’t work though!!!
However, the UI was really funky when I uploaded the first file that I was able to change, cycling thru those three screens I mentioned above multiple times.
When it comes to computers, I have always been able to make them go kitty-wonkiss. Recently, I shut down Safeway’s computer grocery checkout system multiple times with my credit card. One time I had one item and a person with a shopping card full of groceries let me go in front of them, right before I crashed their system. I left $10 with the cashier for a six-pack and walked out of the store.
Lol!!! I could write a best selling book about all the strange things that happend with me and computers.
Another one, for example, is the largest GIS software company in the U.S was demo’ing their new software at a conference. I got picked to use it in front of a lot of people. It took me three key strokes to shut it down and they could not get it running again for several hours!
