What do I answer to when the rabble calls oot: Hey, you there -- turnip basher! I wouldn't rightly know what ta bash, whether to bash with me cudgel: a plant or tha hooligan. An' tha be a matter o' highland consequence.

So what'll it be we heeland vegetarians get called? I'm so confused.

Nay Laddie. I understood the bash part. The question was what I would be a-bashing without me 'aggis on the anvil. I suppose I could bash potatoes.

Among my clan, we're pretty fair at the mashed potato and the alligator. The twist. Come to think of it, the alligator is used in 'aggis down Louisiana way. So the alligator is out. I suppose that a vegetarian 'aggis basher is a potato masher. (I do 'ave a wee bit of Irish in me fine self, and so I do. Plus a whole lot of German which means I'll be takin' the von MacMickey.) And if that dennay confuse the issue, nothin' will.

I like the art you're putting up, MacPloos, ye ol' cornflake basher.

So MacPloos, you're putting the ruler to good use it appears. Nice stuff. But personally the story is with the lad and the subjects of the paintings telling their story.

Funny thing, when I was a student several decades back I would go to the museum quite a bit. I recall one time I got up this close to a huge Picasso checking out the canvas fabric and paint. And some goofball in the room having fun with his girlfriend came up and also stuck his face up to the painting. Was funny collecting around a very broad painting that needed the viewer to step back to appreciate it. I think the other chap was out to make his girl laugh. I was actually checking out the way the paint lay on the canvas. I suppose this is a contributing reason why I didn't have a girlfriend at the time. Caught red-handed looking at women, perhaps too close-up.

At the time I never imagined before the internet that some lad with white whiskers in Brighton 4 decades hence would would be painting me youthful self like a snapshot. Er, this is me in the painting, correct?

ˇVaya con close work!

His coat. In like a fool went for extra paper singing there B trouble ahead. And there was as not only did I get the bit on the. Left. But changed my drawing ok. So on the second tried to correct which wasn't to bad. Apart from a backside like
a hippo so called Finn so after messing with the black-eyed Irish girl it came up on the screen which annoyed me so

Sounds like you're in bidness, MacPloos! Guess wearing yer kilts makes it easier for the nurse to wrap yer legs, lad. Just make sure they no accidentally tuck in the sporran especially if it be where ye keeps yer stylus. Oh nay.

Painting well. Good starter. Is that yer nurse? You said you were going to paint him or her. This one looks like a him. Crafty how the goatee sort of gives the gender a push toward the masculine.

Hoot and double hoot!

that there be what I'd call a deluxe wrapper! It's a very good picture, young fellow. I bet it looks just like her and that she should be well chuffed. I really get the brilliant, healing vibe coming off her. Well done! I think I'll be moving to the UK just to get my legs wrapped -- -- that is depending on the immigration rules these days. Maybe I'll sneak in like everybody else on the back of a lorry through the Chunnel. Just send me the forms where I can sign up for the national health. I'll be wearin me kilts to make it easier for the wrapping.

the picture of Princess Di turned out really well. She looks absolutely lovely in your picture. You should be well pleased with it, especially since, as you say, she just sort of appeared as you were noodling about. I always figure that's a sure sign that you're in the zone.

I also like the Rembrandt lassie in Houston Texas during the hurricane flooding. They really got slammed. I hope they can recover well in time.

. . . I'm confused the Rembrandt lassie in Houston???. . .

Oh, this here be the Rembrandt girl in the floodwaters of Houston, Texas after this nasty hurricane hit. Flooded everything badly. The hurricane decided to stop in Houston for some tacos and a several kegs of beer, and well. . . you know. . . once you pee the first time, you'll be going the rest of the night. Works that way with Mother Nature as well. The rainfall was insane.

So I thought you were painting the flood girl cause of the flood.

Hi MacPloos. I mostly copied other people's words for the following two ideas from a search I did for ya. I'm not linking you to them to avoid having to wade through the answers. I think this gives you all you need:

Idea 1:
So, where did they go?

1. Go into the Start Menu (lower left hand corner just to the right of the window symbol where it should say "O Type here to search"), and look for the ArtRage listing under Apps. It can be found right there in alphabetical order.

2. If you're having trouble finding it there, then use Cortana. Type the name of the program into the Cortana search bar, and be sure to select the "My Stuff" button, so that it will only search locally and not search the store or web.

3. Right Click on the name ArtRage and select "Pin to Taskbar" so that it will always have a shortcut (in a perfect world).
----------------

Idea 2:
To search for missing things, follow these steps:



Type what you'd like to find into the Search box next to the Start button. As you begin typing, Windows immediately begins searching for matches. ...
Limit your search to your computer. ...
Choose a matching item to open it, bringing it to the screen.



-------------
Idea 3: (D Akey's idea) -- I'd be as lost as your venerable self since I'm used to MACs. I may run into this on my Windows 10 machine that I hardly use. So we're both potential victims.

1. Call the 5 year old next door to come rescue ya.
2. Put on football.
3. Pass me the crisps.

09-12-2017, 07:50 PM
I would dearly love to help you Mr Ploos but I'm a little confused too. If MS helped you get AR back it must still be on your computer and perhaps you can't find it? If you can find it in your programmes you can click on the ArtRage 5 icon and it will open for you on your computer. Here's where it is on mine. See if you can follow the numbered screenshots. Click on each one to take you to the next.

93804

As you can see I have the AR 5 Demo. Once you have it open the AR icon should show in the task bar - at the bottom of the screen - 93805 Right click on that and then on the menu that opens, choose "Pin to Taskbar". I think Mr. DA gave you some instructions on that.

93806

Sorry to hear you're having such a rotten time of it. When the youngsters come to wrap your legs could you not get them to look at your computer? Usually something software is the problem. (Not always).

Have you checked if there's an update to your pen's drivers? You may need to just download and install the update. If it's software compatibility and it's Microsoft, lots of people have been down this road ahead of you and got it sorted. And all you have to do, hopefully, is go to the site (Wacom is it?) and download and install the latest. But read what the updated drivers are for and compare the versions so you get the right one.

And it could mean you should call Wacom's support line because you may find that's where the pinch was. Microsoft only gives a toot about their own operating systems generally, and the companies that have their software tied to it just have to keep up or die on the vine.

Try calling Wacom.

Good luck lad!

I don't have those devices, but usually you can do at least a couple things.

1) email it to yourself from the iPad to your mail program on your computer -- if you have your mail working on your iPad.

2) I would imagine your USB (charger wire) from the iPad plugs into the computer at a USB port. Once recognized, it then goes automatically to iTunes where you can sync the two (I'm told).

I don't have one myself so I couldn't say from first hand experience.

So what happened when you called Wacom about the driver for your pens?

What are the pens doing that you don't want them to do?

Did you calibrate the pen and tablet to work on your screen?

1) That's where the point of the nib touches your tablet and that matches where that point corresponds on your screen. In other words the paint goes exactly where you touch. That has to be calibrated.

2) Also, you touch the tablet in the four corners to establish the extreme outside of your screen so everything on your screen is available to you with your stylus touch. That way all your menus at the top can be accessed with your stylus and you won't need the mouse at all.

Your tech assistant should have done that for you, MacPloos. I have a Cintiq running Windows 10 and it asks me every time if I want to calibrate it. Maybe the calibration got undone. Not sure what you're dealing with so I can't quite help.

When it's working it should work like a charm.

I like the image of second sight. Nothing like a little time to get away from old work so you can come at it with a fresh eye. Lots shows up that was outside our immediate concern when we're in there trying to work out some other detail. So good on ya, lad. Definitely know what you're a-talking aboot.

For working the quirky pens you're doing admirably well. Probably wise to not do touch-up and finesse on the cheap. Well, the tech guy is scheduled to come and sort it, right? Meantime, it's free form time. Go man go!!!!!!

Some of these are really great. I particularly love the amber docks, and also your re-interpretation of Jean's interpretation of the coast in dark blues.

I always thought they hailed from Wacom, Texas (yeeHAW!). . . till I discovered t'were actually Waco, Texas. I think they picked up the M after a corporate Merger with a game of Scrabble. T'were in Texas it was found that problems with your stylus pen was mightier than the sword, the six shooter, and the hot tamale, Pard. Scares the IT folk to where they put the plum loco in the raspberry locomotion and beat a clear path on out o' Brighton.

You're fighting with pens. Alligator nipping at yer gams. . . I hear ya, laddie. A real tussle.

Cause it appears they're out ta Wack'im with your pens, MacPloos. Hopefully they'll work better for them in the clinch. The results could be rugged for the artist.
