Much as I admire the power of this art program, its simply overwhelming! I find that I can’t do what I want easily and yet I could do the same thing in Windows Paint, more or less!
I use a word processor ‘skin’ called Jarte that is a front end piggy backed on top of Wordpad. It just makes it easier to use and I wish there was a similar option for your admirable but overly complex program.
Please forgive me for saying this but my ideal art program was DeLuxe Paint 3 on the Amiga and I’d pay good money for a skin that sat atop your program and presented me with a much easier to use front end that resembled the latters appearance.
Its so frustrating to know that your program offers so much but is too damn hard to work out, requires user input that confuses me. If it only started with a simple screen of ‘paper’ with a few essential tool icons awaiting selection. Then I could at least make a start on producing an image easily and quickly. From that point on I would then doubtless be able to start investigating the many options and additional tools just waiting to be needed.
This is an example of what I couldn’t produce easily and had to use Paint to do instead. i wanted graduated fills and to animate the units joining up to make larger shapes but of course Paint cannot do that but your program could if I only knew how.
