Mitered corner script, is there a class or blog or video where this script is used? When I want to make my own border, how do you start?April 7, 2022 at 7:07 pm #74967
I don’t have a ready-made video on using this script but it is very straightforward:
- open the ribbon or the element you want to use for the frame/edge
- run the script
- follow the prompts asking about the type of element and the final dimensions you want
- watch it work
Are you running into issues?April 7, 2022 at 7:49 pm #74968
This is the link to a video on how to use the mitred corner script. It is in the store, under lace brushes. I knew I had seen a video somewhere, it took me a while, but then I remembered. It’s in an unlikely place. The most important thing to remember is to make sure that your ribbon, lace, or what ever you are using is completely horizontal, otherwise, you will encounter problems.April 7, 2022 at 7:54 pm #74969
Thanks Sue! I thought I had done one but could not remember where it was!April 7, 2022 at 7:59 pm #74970
No problem! I have my uses, sometimes! 🙂 Perhaps you can add that video to the mitred corner script in the store. It’s there then for anyone who purchases the mitred corner script.April 7, 2022 at 8:02 pm #74971
I should definitely do that. I wish I had the time to do a video for EVERY product in the store!April 7, 2022 at 8:10 pm #74972
I only discovered that video, when I purchased your lace brushes. The Mitred corner script, was included in my very first order from the store. I discovered the hard way, if you can call it that. That the element has to be completely horizontal, that is why I mentioned it. As for EVERY product, having a video. Well, I don’t think everything needs a video. The majority of the products, especially the scripts have more than adequate written instructions. When read carefully, to be understood.April 7, 2022 at 8:18 pm #74973
I will say, that I can create a circular element better than using the circular element script. I use the ‘creating lace’ tutorial in the creative scrap instead. I don’t get any small gaps for some reason.April 7, 2022 at 8:21 pm #74974
The majority of the products, especially the scripts have more than adequate written instructions. When read carefully, to be understood.
Problem is that you have to purchase it before getting the instructions, and many people are still very unsure about using scripts (or purchasing them). I am still surprised to hear people say “scripts are above my head”, or “but I don’t know how to use scripts”. And videos would also be to show the versatility of the script and the end result.
Believe it or not, someone had asked me what to do with a window (from the Wooden Window script) once done. He had NO CLUE how to use it.April 7, 2022 at 9:12 pm #74975
Possibly someone who was brand new to psp. 🙂 I regard myself as an average person. I read instructions, until I understand them. You have to take the time to learn. Having common sense is an asset, something which is lacking in society today, especially in the younger generation. For those that say they don’t know how to use scripts, point them in the direction of the two or it is three masterclasses you have done over the years. You are the rocket scientist, who creates them, for us to use with ease.April 8, 2022 at 8:57 am #74976
Thank you Sue and Carole for looking at my problem.
Sue, your comment That the element has to be completely horizontal to begin with, that’s the answer I was looking for. What should I start with before I run the script. With the link to the video with the lace bruches it is now super clear! I had in mind that I had watched a video somewhere where the mitered corner was explained, but I wasn’t sure anymore and couldn’t find it anywhere.
Carole, to use the script then is very clear indeed. Follow the prompts and it will work by itself, very good script, I actually didn’t manage to formulate my question clearly, but Sue gave the answer
I am someone who always reads the instructions, but it is not always obvious when it is written in a language other than your own, and sometimes 1 misunderstood word confuses everything
With the link to the video about the lace bruches, it has become completely clear
Thank you!! now i’m going to practice a little 😀

Not everyone my age has much or little knowledge of English. Especially manuals that deal with specific things are not always clear when it is in another language.
Some people my age have never worked on a computer, and don’t start doing so until they are retired
It’s different for the younger generation, of course 🙂

Marie-Claire, you may already know, but I’m going to mention it anyway, just in case. Use a guide when creating your lace or ribbon with either a tube, or a brush. That way you are guaranteed to get it perfectly horizontal.April 8, 2022 at 4:47 pm #74998Corrie KinkelParticipant
I have the mitered corner script too and like Marie-Claire I was a little put off when trying to execute it the first time. I always read the instructions very carefully but sometimes it can be difficult because they are in English. The use of a good oldfashioned paper dictionary next to my computer is a great help for understanding. Besides that I like to find out for myself how it has to be done and I use that script now without a problem. I just checked the video if I do it correctly and it would have been great if this video was available with the script.April 8, 2022 at 5:06 pm #75000
thank you Sue for bringing it to my attention (#74993)
Corrie I use google translate, it works very well, but from the explanation I did not understand that I first had to create a ribbon or lace or whatever separately. Now with Sue’s explanation, and now that I’ve seen the video my euro has fallen, as we say here 😄April 8, 2022 at 5:13 pm #75001
Wonderful Marie-Claire. I would say “the penny has dropped” or ” the penny has finally dropped. In other words understood! 🙂 Depending on how long it takes me to work something out.April 12, 2022 at 9:44 am #75133Julie MagerkaParticipant
I can’t even imagine trying to learn/work with PSP with instructions in a language other than my own! It’s challenging enough without trying to figure out words and expressions in that language. I admire those that are doing that! And, to use an idiom, I “take my hat off” to you. To me, this whole mitred corner thing sounds a bit daunting.April 12, 2022 at 10:14 am #75134
Julie, the instructions for that mitered corner, if you want to do it manually (not with a script) is available HERE, inside the vault. Just if you are curious.April 12, 2022 at 10:58 am #75141April 18, 2022 at 9:40 am #75465Julie MagerkaParticipant
Thanks Carole. I will try that. I like to know how the script works before I rely on it. Or, at least I think I do. The whole mask process was a real learning curve. But I’m glad I went through it.
