  1. LDD screenshots are PNG files with alpha channel: that means you can add the background you want behind the subject of the image. To obtain this, you have to use the screenshot feature integrated in LDD, both from menu or using the CTRL+K keyboard shortcut.
  2. Agree with inkpanther: the best solutions seemsto be BS Backup. It is way better than other options. If you have not a Windows PC, I think it will not be too difficult to find one next you to use for few minutes.
  3. Index updated with informations reported until here.
  4. Index updated. 55 Sets has been added to the index (18 alternative, 3 duplicate, 0 incomplete). Check your sets and report errors or inaccuracies in the index, if any!

  5. You should share more informations about the LDD model and your computer. This would help us to understand the problem. Besides I can't understand if the issue is appears in safe mode only (it is a compatibility mode, and probably video acceleration is very limited or disabled).
  6. Using the LDD Mode don't ensure that the part exists in a specific colour or with a specific decoration. Even in LDD Mode there are combinations that are not available in real life. In brief LDD Mode is not a "real life" mode, but a simplified mode for youngest users. The only affordable way without an automatic tool (such as LDD Manager, that unfortunately is not up-to-date anymore) is to check the BOM (the bricklist of the parts that compose the model) and check in bricklink if that parts are available. Once that unavailable parts is detected, you can try to replace the colour using an existing one through the shape and colour selection tools. Last but not least, the fact that a brick exists in real life don't mean that it is easy to find or cheap. Often Mocs are full of rare bricks used in large number, and this makes very difficult to built the set in real bricks. PS: Bricklink supports upload from LXF files, unfortunately with some limitations. Note that LDD bricks and bricklink ones have different design ids, so a direct import is not feasible.
  7. @BrokenEye Take a look at here, for example.
  8. @BrokenEye Often it is possible to place together more neck pieces using a scaffolding. When a collision error don't occurs, at least. In this case you will have not a connection, but the parts can be put in place anyway.
  9. 10255 has not been released yet, so it is premature to see its new parts at the moment. Besides it is quite optimistic expect to see "all" the new parts of the set, especially if you include decorations. Even if at the moment this topic seem to be a place where users can flow their wishes than a list where the LDD Team can get ideas of which parts can be added for the next update, I suggest to propose more realistic requests, and exactly specify the desired parts.
  10. Hi lomis, and welcome in the LDD Official Sets topic. Your post is very good, perfectly formatted and sized, but there is one thing you should fix: the images are not screenshots but renders, and only real LDD screenshot are allowed here. If you want you can share the renders as extra using text links. PS: I suggest you to separate the sets in the post using an "HR" line. PPS: as LDD 4.3.10 is out, maybe you want to update the files with the new version, as they have been just posted.
  11. Index updated with informations reported until here.
  12. Same for me! Let's wait that Superkalle or legolijntje will open the new topic then.
  13. Index updated. 53 Sets has been added to the index (9 alternative, 19 duplicate, 0 incomplete).

  14. I think the problem is not to post the sets in the LDD Official Sets topic, you are absolutely free to contribute or not (it is on a voluntary basis), but to maintain a sort of duplicate and personal topic here. If you want to contribute, there is some rule to follow, but I'm here to guide you, if necessary. Anyway you can use this topic to anticipate your works, if you want.
  15. This is very intricate, and insert the text inside a code snippet... that it exactly what I don't want. The purpose of "No Syntax Highlighting" option is to assign no syntax highlight typical of a specific programming/markup language inside a code snippet. I'd like a fast way to remove text formatting when I paste text instead. For example I've to report the name of a user inside the sentence I'm writing, so I copy it from a post above the one I'm writing, for example x105Black that, as you can see, is not merged with the rest of the text, because the copied text maintains the original format. Anyway I noticed that now, when I add a formatted text, a dark bar pops up on the bottom of the textarea asking me if I want to remove text formatting. It seems to me that this bar didn't appear before today. It is much better than the procedure quoted above, but I think that a simple SHIFT+paste (typical shortcut for this functionality) would be a better and faster way.
