Back with yet another question. I'm having trouble with GIMP and adding reg. marks to multi-layer PDFs. For example, I will pull up Okumarts Orc Tribe on GIMP, import it from PDF, set it to 300 dpi, and hit import. It only shows one PDF when choosing what to import. I was thinking I'd be able to grab each individual PDF and print different colors/bonus materials off. Is it that GIMP simply can't do what I want it to?

Pretty much, I usually set up the page the way I want it, and print it to pdf. On this computer I do it with Microsoft Print to Pdf, on my other computer, I use CutePDF.
Once you figure out what you want, then you can use Gimp to combine different color guys onto the same page, but if you are using a cutter, you need to make sure that things are in exactly the same place on the page, because the cutter has instructions for cutting out the original file, not the modified file. It takes a bit of care to make sure no errors get included in your modified file
There are no strangers in this world,only people I haven't embarrassed ... yet!
lightning: That is good advice but I still wish I could create faster to get all ideas out of my head in time :-)

Papercraft Warrior: The trick is, only projects you should start, are those that you can finish in reasonable time... all others get stuck in their own personal hell.

Coyotepunc: Hopefully tonight I will get some pictures up of Striders with tentacles and my kitbashed 1940s Manchurian building. Hopefully. I might just go to bed.

Vermin King: I think that's why I'm doing so many 'stupid' little projects these days. The projects I want to finish seem to be stuck in their own pocket universe

mproteau: I'm tempted to rename "Paper Realms" to "Glacial Studios" to reflect my pace.

okumarts: Really overwhelmed at work. Marking essays and projects at the end of a semester. I wish I could create stuff faster.

mproteau: 2 of 3 pages of the Local Heroes minis are done! I'm working on some 6" cave walls right now, kinda flip-flopping between the two tasks. Should have the set's cutfiles done tonight, though.

mproteau: Finally! A little success on my cave walls. I like what happened on my desk this morning, and it led me to a few more ideas. Time to work on the grids for the tiles..

mproteau: Good lord I hope I get better at what I'm doing, 'cause it isn't all that good right now! Time to pick up another pack of cardstock to feed to the cutter... lots of failed test builds...
