Question about right hand panel

Hi, I am new here, have just opened HF 5.6.1 for the first time.

Please see screen shot attached. I think I hit a wrong button and the right hand panel went to twice its usual width, and I cannot seem to reduce its width again.

Could you help me with this please?

Mike

There are the five dots that you can click on and drag the preset to the right.

Stas,

Thanks, I have found the 5 dots for the right panel and the left panel.

For the left panel, I can drag the line left or right.
For the right panel, I can only drag the line to the left, not to the right. Is the line already in its "end position"? - Please see my screen shot.

Which Forum is the right one for "Beginners' Questions" ? This is probably not a bug ?

Regards,
Mike

Yes, the line already in its "end position". We don't have forum for "Beginners' Questions". The help comes together with the program, you can always open it from the program with F1 key.

Thanks, so that is the "end position" of the right panel.

Whilst I am quite capable of reading Help and Tutorials, there will always be questions, and I am sure that I shall be asking more questions - otherwise, why have a Forum?

And in future, I may be answering some of the questions.

I am trying to start an ongoing thread dedicated to Helicon Filter on Dpreview, on either the Panasonic Compact Talk Forum or the Retouching Forum:

http://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/4016901
http://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/4017003

This should be good for promotion and sales. There is a need for user-friendly apps like Helicon Filter, and people should be told about them.

Regards.
Mike

PS: There seems to be only one Tutorial on Helicon Filter, is that right?

Hi Stas there seems to be a problem with this latest update, I have the same problem as Mike.

Right Hand Panel very restricted in adjustment. And Panasonic RAW files processed by HF when saved as Jpegs, seem to lose a lot of the processed improvements added via HF.

As a long time user of HF, I thought to revert to an older version. So installed Version 5.0.0, and the result was no sign of the faults stated, only proviso being in preferences, RAW has to be set to 'Embedded RAW converter'.

Trust you may have a solution to this soon.

Many Thanks.
