It doesn't mean you can't work out the UI in a vector illustrator app, if you so desire, and then export it to a bitmap.
Oldes
Right... you can even use slow but nice CPU randering into bitmap, which is than used as your assets on GPU.
Henrik
I enjoyed working out the old test artwork for the R3 GUI, but it isn't realistic to ask a designer to use DRAW to make new skins.

Henrik - I don't believe, that doing styles in PS is faster than using Illustrator, unless you admit, that you don't know the Ilustrator.
Of course - if you then use it to generate bitmpas, why not, but doing arrows, buttons, etc. should be imo faster with the Vector SW ...
Henrik
Pekr, I never said that. I said that using DRAW to make skins is much more laborious than using an artwork application like Photoshop or Illustrator.
And these days, those two kinds of apps are merging.
Pekr
ah, by draw you mean - our rebol draw, not vector SW in general?
well, if Ilustrator or Inkscape can generate SVG, then maybe it is a pity draw is not an SVG container ....
Henrik
Yes, I meant using DRAW directly. Using SVG, I'm not a fan of either, as it doesn't work very well for pixel accuracy.

Having trouble using 'load-gui from the Atronix build. Seems http://atronixengineering.com/r3/r3-gui.r3 is not accessible. Anyone else having this problem? Do you know where I can get r3-gui.r3?
I've tried http://development.saphirion.com/resources/r3-gui.r3, but it doesn't seem to be compatible.
I've also tried downloading Atronix's latest Development release, but 'load-gui is also not working on that.
Any ideas?

I'm having the same problem, and I don't know the solution either.

That's funny.  I tried to download and run the Windows version of their REBOL, 32-bit and 64-bit, to try on my Windows 7 computer, and I got a message about it not being compatible with my computer.  I was going to try a different download option to see if it was a corruption issue.

Bo, what's happening with the Saphirion R3-GUI version? Does it crash?
Pekr
Not wanting necessarily to steal the thunder, but maybe, GUI wise, it is a time to start looking into the Red option ....
Bo
Robert: It seems to not be compatible with the Atronix R3-GUI, because my program runs fine when 'load-gui works. With Saphirion's, my program errors out with:
** Script error: / does not allow none! for its value2 argument
** Where: do resize-panel actor all foreach do-actor either -apply- apply case view do either either either -apply-
** Near: do bind bind/copy [
    size: viewport-box/bottom-right

Sorry guys. We deployed a new website on Friday and a few files did not get transferred over. We'll have this fixed soon.

ddharing, wouldn't it be best to use something like 'load-thru for something as critically important as r3-gui.r3 ?
Bo
I was thinking about something similar as well. A small checksum file could be placed on the Atronix site along with r3-gui.r3, and 'load-gui on the client could compare the checksum of the local copy of r3-gui.r3 against the one on the site. If it was different, then it could download the new copy.
ddharing
That's a good suggestion. I'll pass it along to Shixin.
