For some odd reason on MAC OS, I'm having a hard time again with changing the preview. Are you clicking and moving two fingers, just moving two fingers, something else ? I'm tried many combinations but no success.
could you please specify the version of the script, PI and mac os. I'll take a look a it

So, I checked on my side and seems working fine. When the images are selected first time select preview area looks like this:

Scrolling(moving two fingers up and down) makes green rectangle smaller or bigger:

Clicking with one finger makes it move to the desired point:

Hi....
Great script! I tried it for the first time a couple of days ago and it worked fine (PI 1.8.8-9 and script v0.2.1). However, when I again tried to use the script today, I could process the preview, but when trying to continue with the full image, this error message appeared:

Attempt to execute a Script instance recursively (view context).
Sorry, but this is not supported in current PixInsight versions.

So, something is wrong, but I cannot figure out wat. I have done no update since the script worked, so this is strange...

Any suggestions?

best
Alf J.

Hi Astroswell, after upgrading to PI 1.8.9 your script disappeared and is not downloadable/updateable from your repository. Manual installation from github works without any issues. Please adapt/extend the version requirements to the current release, please ;)!

Code:
<platform os="all" arch="noarch" version="1.8.0:1.8.8">
Thank you for your valuable script,
Jürgen

Hey all, bit of an issue, so I am looking for some help.

I installed Star De-emphasizer Script for PixInsight with no issues, used it once, worked fine. Then Pixinsight crashed for the first time on me. I restarted PixInsight and now Star De-emphasizer Script for PixInsight is missing from the Script Menu. I can still see it within Manage Repositories. I remove it, then copy the link and nothing happens it will not re-install. Anyone else come across this or something similar?

Hey, what version of the PI and OS are you running?
