Fixed a bug that was causing ArtRage popup menus to behave incorrectly when they overlapped each other.
Fixed a bug that could cause empty tool settings panels to appear if tool selection was changed while the interface was hidden.
Fixed a rare crash bug encountered when opening some Photoshop documents.
Fixed a problem with printing whereby a black box would be printed on output with some older print drivers.
