issue with downloading patterns
I just "upgraded" to 2.8 today and am unable to download and upload new patterns. In the past I've been able to use "photoshop" patterns or any other .pat file but everything I try is just not working! I'm getting so frustrated!

I tried loading certain images as an image, and then exporting to .pat file, but it still won't show up in my patterns.

someone please help me! this is driving me nuts!

RE: issue with downloading patterns
.pat are a thing of the past, Gimp will use any image format (but PNG is recommended) for patterns as well.

Patterns go in the "patterns" folder/directory of your Gimp profile. Is this were you put them? Do you see this listed in "Edit/Preferences"->"Folders/Patterns"?
