Just uploaded a slightly updated version of the "Seamless Tiles Generator 2" to
See the descriptions on page "Sample Stacks" on my website
Among other things this stack features an improved resizable and draggable
selection graphic that lets you choose a segment of any size from the imported
source image to create a seamless tile.
The ink of the selection graphic needed to be adapted both to the differences
between Windows and MacOS and the stackfileversions 2.4 and 2.7.
With engine versions < 2.7 we need "admin" for MacOS and "srcAnd" for Windows.
For engine versions 2.7 and higher "srccopy" is necessary for both platforms to
show a transparent graphic.
Moreover, I have changed the stack extension from "*.mc" to "*.rev", to enable
users of Rev 3.0 to see and load the stack.
See the quote of my earlier post (to the Metacard- and Improve-lists) concerning
this special problem:
