V 1.2017.09.27 Update

Changes:
  • Modified fill coloration for all shapes; any variation can be filled (including Union/Xor variations)
  • Setting the FillAlpha variable to a low value (<100) creates a gradient effect in the shapes, darkest at the center and fading toward the edges (exceptions: Union/Xor)
  • Union/Xor variations will show solid color and alpha levels in the center
  • Skins are now in separate folders; allows you to have more than one loaded at a time (each use only a few percent on my mediocre system)
First post attachment updated...
V 1.2017.09.27 released a day early :sly:

EDIT: (Additions show in V 1.2017.09.27b)
  • Added 'Edit Variables' to the context menu
  • Moved [Variables] section to top of the file
  • Added comments in [Variables] to assist in utilizing features
  • Reworked Expansion and Compression variations formulas; added clamps to avoid excessive values
