I’m in the middle of doing the silver challenge in chapter 6 but it’s struck me that a definition of what a cross heir is can be different to different people. Was there anything specific variation in mind?
my idea would be a vertical and horizontal line, the cross, with a circle that intersects half way from the centre on each of the four lines. Hopefully that will cover what I’m supposed to learn from this exercise.
On a more normal question topic, I’ve found a use for saving and restoring the graphics context before the text is written to avoid having to reset the shadow options. Would you use it for anything else? Am I right in thinking that if you were to do a lot of custom drawing you’d set up different contexts depending on what you needed, rather than using the same one and altering it each time?
