While looking for it I opened the App store and went to Purchases and there it was- I clicked on a tiny X next to it- actually it was so tiny I thought it was a dot- it disappeared! I suppose it was a delete key!!??

I usually just use aperature for everything but my wife has decided that she wants to do more with pictures that she takes and has decided to really give pixelmator a run. To prepare for the questions she will have I book marked the tutorial site for her in Safari. I was going to watch some videos to brush up and be ready for the questions that I am going to get. Imagine my suprise when I clicked on my first video and it loaded a black screen with a spinning wheel in the middle and the message "Invalid meta for Vimeo". I can right click to select open in a new window or new tab with no problems. She won't do that.
Firefox works just fine but her perfered browser is Safari, I know that I'm not the only one who has had problems, nor will I be the last. Just a heads up if you did not know about it.

I just recently updated to Pixelmator 2.1 and seems that thecircular
wrap filter is missing. Too bad as I was using this effect on many of my
designs..............

Carl, thanks for letting us know, we’ll get it fixed. In the meantime, you can watch our video tutorials on YouTube as well. Here’s the link:

ashley1, the Circular Wrap effect is still there! You can find it in the Effects Browser (View > Show Effects) under the Distortion group.

hi all
i just downloaded a trial version of pixelmator for my macbook air. in past i used Adobe PS and it seems that this app is very similar.
my question is...
why is the screen black?
i was able to open an image and played a bit but the screen
was so black and print so tiny very difficult to figure out what i was doing.
even in this forum, it is. and print is small.

is there an option to edit this dark color OR
it is that way because i have a trial version?

i have 30 days on this trial and am anxious to see what it can do!
