A critique of the ArtRage shortcuts usability & consiste
I just got a Macbook Pro and I downloaded a couple of graphic softwares to try with my Wacom Intuos board.
I was suprised that ArtRage didn't really work that well with the Intuos3. The default keys for the shortcut keypad is cmd, shift, opt and space, but only opt corresponds to an ArtRage shortcut (the dropper). Since these defaults are pretty useful (space is move in every other graphical application) I don't wish to remap them to R and M just for ArtRage (though I must confess that I usually remap the cmd key to cmd + z for a quick undo instead).
And even if I should remap the shortcuts to R and M, I don't think it would work since somehow, the rotate and move shortcuts seem like a permanent switch, while the dropper shortcut is only active while the key is held down (as it should be, imo).
My suggestion would be to add move functionality to space and rotate functionality to shift, since these doesn't seem to be mapped to anything anyway, and then also make them only active while the key is held down. This would enable ArtRage to work better with the Intuos3 while not conflicting with the already availible shortcuts.
Finally, the touch strip doesn't zoom in ArtRage as you'd expect, but I guess that's simply because it isn't implemented yet.
Art should tell a story, don't paint a moment, paint a lifetime.
