My top keyboard tips (incl. undoc features)

Here is a few keyboard tips from a windows users (might even work for Mac too). Some of these tips might be because of localized keyboard (DK).

1. Hold Space + Left Click to drag the canvas.

2. Hold Alt + Space + Left Click to rotate the canvas.

3. Press Page Up / Page Down to zoom in/out.

4. Press Alt + Left Click to sample a colour directly from canvas (or a reference picture). Settings in the Eyedropper tool affect usage.

5. Alt/Option clicking the background of the ArtRage window behind your canvas sets its color to the one currently selected in the color picker.

6. Press ? to rotate 180.

7. Press I to Show/Hide Panels

8. Ctrl + M to Show/Hide UI

9. Ctrl + N for New painting.

10. Never, never, never press F11!

Indicates features not currently listet in the manual - hint, hint BrotherRage.


One last tip keyboard tip:
Double click Tool Size control in the Tool Picker. In manual input sizes up to 500 % are possible. But be warned - they cursor will get slooooow.

Happy doodling,
