    Frank is exactly right (thanks for explaining, Frank!) :)
    I have found the easiest thing is to move the charges aside, to where I have the one I want to delete standing on its own. Then click on it to highlight it (you will see the border with editing handles), and hit the DEL or BACKSPACE key on your keyboard.
    Please do leave feedback -- these questions are good to hear, as they highlight usability issues. I will think of a way to implement the deleting aspect better, or more clearly.

    Sir Grant;

    How confident are you that being able to display a charge issuant from a line of division such as in my current device will be within the capabilities of the production version of your generator?

    Also, has the college made a determination to pursue your work as the generator of choice?

    Thank you;

    I have implementation plans for having charges like the sun be issuant from a division. This will work best with symmetrical charges. Other charges might need to be made custom to be issuant. My real concern is figuring out how to make wavy, embattled, dancety borders. So while I'm 95% confident as to issuant from straight bordeurs, I'll tackle styled bordeurs at a later date. :)
    Next on my list is to get ordinaires working better and get them finalized.

    Version 0.5.3 just went live with public gallery and fixed saved image sizes.

    For 0.5.4 I will be re-focussing on ordinaires and optimize the workflow with them, as well as add additional ones for the shield-specific sizes.

    Fimbriation of Ordinaries is working now.
    Also, you can drag Ordinaries around a little, and select multiple Ordinaries.

    Just put out a little patch today (v0.5.7):
    • Additional placement points along the edge of the Founders' Shield to allow placement of Ordinaires in Chief, Base, Dexter and Sinister.
    • This also allows charges to be placed issuant from Chief, Base, Dexter, and Sinister.
    This currently only works on the Founders' Shield, but will be added to the other shields shortly.

    Still can't do issuant from divisions yet, although that's coming soon! :) Actually working on that in conjunction with rotating patterns in divisions at the moment.

    No, sorry -- I won't be working on that for a while yet.

    Just released 0.5.8, which is a very minor update. It adds a support option for registered users. You can now contact us directly for questions or problems.

    Note: I am currently working on a much larger issue dealing with pattern rotations on objects. This has turned out to be much more complex than anticipated, and has been slowing down my usual pace for getting new functionality in. No ETA just yet.

    Another small update today (0.5.9): you can now reset your password, should you forget it. :)

    I just tried, and it looks to be up now. I think the host was doing some maintenance around 8AM for about 5 minutes.

    Quick update. The host is experience trouble, and they are working to resolve it. While the site should be operational most of the time, it may go down for brief moments during this time. There is no EToC yet.

    Grant, the password reset function I get this each time "The password reset token is invalid"
    Even when I use the link within 1 min of it being generated.
