That's because normal text editors like Notepad don't support extended ASCII characters, so you can really only use it for images composed of normal alphanumeric text if you expect it to look the same, *or* use a text viewer that supports extended ASCII (code page 437, the most common one).

Among the changes are your draw-from-center behavior for circles, Aqizzar.

Thanks!  Fantastico man, I've been getting a lot of use out of this program lately, those features will come in very handy.

Good to hear! Sorry it took so long to get around to adding your relatively simple centered circle request. Been pretty busy lately so it's more efficient to wait until I have a long list of things to add and do them all at once for a more substantial release.

As a side note, the .txt export is a bit odd, to say the least. In rex, this is a 10x10 rectangle of a's surrounding a horizontal line rect, which itself is surrounding the rect of b's. In export it looks like this:
Code: [Select]
AAAAAAAAAA
A矬闡闡醴A
A處BBBBB莧
A處    B莧
A處    B莧
A處    B莧
A處    B莧
A處BBBBB莧
A斂闡闡囁A
AAAAAAAAAA

The letters are intact, but the horizontal line has warped into some odd alt-key characters.
No promises yet, but I'm looking into solving this issue by using some kind of unicode-encoded .txt file. I've never used unicode before though, so this may not turn out well :/

I started looking into it again after thinking about the possibility of a new output format: BBCode that could be pasted directly into a forum. Is there any interest in this?

I found a partial non-unicode solution to the issue and just uploaded a modified version of REXPaint with the fix. Still need to look into using unicode, but out of curiosity could you download the latest version and try outputting some line glyphs again with txt export? Do they look correct for you? It's not easy for me to test here because my OS doesn't use the U.S. codepage (437).

I can test it today, yeah.
As for the bbcode, unless it included color tags(probably in hex, since not all forums use the same color 'words' afaik), I don't think it would be very different from the already existant text export.

Thanks. For BBCode, I mean full color support w/hex. It would be very easy to do (REXPaint already does hex color output for csv and xml formats), the only question being how to get non-standard characters to output correctly so they'd still be readable when copied (and improve the current txt output with that feature as well, because imo it's mostly useless right now). That and there would have to be configurable background color support, because not all forums support background color, and those that do have different tags, so you'd have to specify the name of the tag (or no bkg color at all).

Its the top download on the download page, right? I'm still getting the same thing in notepad++
Code: [Select]

Yep, it's the top download. Thanks for testing it for me, odd that it still doesn't work, but no matter--I've just successfully converted the txt file output to unicode so it will properly show *all* glyphs in txt, even in Notepad! (Or if you copy them to a forum, etc.) I'll be uploading the new version later today.

This is awesome. I was wondering, though, is there any way to convert the .xp files to .png or .jpeg files? Or any way to have it save them as .png or .jpeg as default?

Just uploaded a new version, R8, with proper implementation of pure text output (now with unicodeTM). Also BBCode export (with color support!) for pasting into forums.

An old drawing of a heavy plasma gun for X@COM as it appears in 1) REXPaint, 2) a text file (txt), and 3) a forum (BBCode!):

I just noticed a strange glitch. Rexpaint will fail to start if you do not have an audio device enabled. It drove me crazy for like two hours yesterday before I figured out the problem.
