Good day !
 (may be - morning or evening..     Smiley  )

I'm using Qimage for many years.....
I would like to ask you to fix problem with inserting floating text on pictures:

- I open an image in the Edit Page window and paste the text as Floating Text in the place I need. So do, say, for 2 images.
- then in the 3rd image I also insert the text, but this time when closing the menu I select the option "All Prints in Queue".
- close the menu, move the text to the right place and maybe change orientation  (allign it).
- open the menu for 3rd image select again option "All Prints in Queue".
  And when closing - select the option "" Would you like to apply your changes to all other text labels that are identical to the current slected text label? "
   Answer - "Yes".
But after this insertion of this text, they DO NOT CHANGE their orientation or position in other images ..

And sometimes (often, but not everytime) happens the next:

 if in the picture with the text already inserted, I insert one more text, but another text and select the "All Prints in Queue" option, then it will NOT appear in other pictures, but only in this one ...
3. if I insert floating text as I've mentioned in 1 - in 1st and 2nd images, then insert other text in in 3rs image - then this last text - doesn't appear ifirst 2 images.....

Please try these operations some times - and I do beleive you'll see the the same.

Hoping  for problems'll be corrected

Best regards,

1: When applying changes to all prints in the queue with the same label, it only copies the changes to the text.  It does not update the location.  The operation was meant as a text copy because if other identical labels already exist, the assumption is that you've already positioned them applicable to each print.  You may have one 5x7 and one 4x6 with the label "Mike - 2019-10-19" under each print and realize the date is incorrect and you want to change it to "Mike - 2019-10-18".  If you change the label on the 4x6 and it also updated the location, the label on the 5x7 would appear inside the 5x7 due to the print being bigger.  If you want to update the location and the text itself, you can delete the identical labels on other prints and then apply to "All in queue": that way it will not have duplicate labels where it is trying to preserve previous positioning and it will recreate both the label and the position.

2: I can't repeat the problem listed.  When adding new lines of text and choosing to copy to all other prints, I see the new text on all prints even if those prints already have other labels.

Thank you for the clarification regarding Floating Text.

It's a pity, that you couldn't repeat mentioned problems - may be it can appear on a computer with Windows 7 only ... ?

But let me pay attention to another repetitive bug:
- open the picture in the "Full Page Editor Page" window, which is NOT expanded in full screen,
- insert, say, a date as a Floating Text, indicating a rotation of -90 degrees, and a font size of 9,
- then, hooking it with the mouse over the upper edge of this window, pull it to the top so that the window expands from the very bottom of the monitor screen to the very top, (or sometimes just moving the window higher),
- in this case, as a rule added text CHANGES:
   1) text label will move to another place,
   2) the font size will change to 14
   3) text label changes rotation usually to -180 degrees..

Hoping you can repeat this bug and can fix it

Best regards,
