Missing presets

Missing presets

I downloaded the rounded corner presets zip (three times) and when it was extracted, it contains only two of the three files that it is supposed to contain.

These are:
rounded corner preset 2_column
and
rounded corner preset 3_column.

The instructions on page 2 of Working with rounded corner layouts in CSS Sculpture call for a file called:

2 Column Fixed, Rounded Corner, Left Sidebar, Header and Footer png
Apart from this being an odd name for a file, it does not exist in the download, so where do I find it? Or am I missing something.

The article is long on instruction and short on explaining what we are supposed to be trying to achieve. I think that it would benefit from a rework.

The tutorial is referring to the "rounded corner preset_ 2column.png" file, which is the source image for the "2 Column Fixed, Rounded Corner, Left Sidebar, Header and Footer" layout that is available in CSS Sculptor.

I am forwarding this to our documentation department so they can see about making that a bit clearer. Thank you for bringing this to our attention.

That helps, but the document expressly states that there are three png files to download.
It would be good if there was a sample file to show what we are supposed to be aiming at.

While your documenters are having a look at that point, why not get an expert stylist who has not used this extension before to have a go at following the article and see if he or she can produce a result?

I bet you do not have one who can!

It is a typo in the documentation that there should be three. there are only two.

The outcome of following that tutorial is to create a layout with a wider header area, and a navigation bar below it.

Since the rounded corners designs are image based, you cannot simply use the controls in CSS Sculptor to add a new div and have that div use rounded corners. You need to first make the layout in an image editing program, then create the slices to be used in CSS Sculptor.

There are a number of people who have been able to successfully follow the tutorial, in all honesty, this is the first time the issue has been raised.


Aside from the mistake of mentioning three images when there are only two, is there specific part of the tutorial you are falling down on?
