I really do love using ArtRage 2, particularly the natural feel of the tools and the way you can rotate around on the canvas like it was a piece of paper (without a lot of loading, like you get in certain other image editors).
But one thing that's bugging me, is the quality of the layer transform tool. Even if all I want to do is grab a layer's contents and move it to a more suitable location, the process takes notably longer than some other image editors and sometimes affects the quality of the layer contents. Most notably is the blurry state the layer contents end up in after being moved - I mainly use ArtRage for drawing and inking line art (I'm a hobby cartoonist), so this drop in quality when I try to move things around does sometimes end in a few poor results (and sometimes forces me to ink over it again to keep the smooth, crispy lines I want). So a Layer Transform tool that doesn't strike down on the quality of the layer contents would be nice. Considered perhaps doing by a "Save as PSD, open in Photoshop, transform contents, save, import into ArtRage" routine as a workaround, but it feels like a lot of hassle for moving a few bits and pieces around.
And while speaking of inking - are there any plans for an inking pen tool of some sort? The Oil Paint pencil with a black color works as well, though it sometimes handles sharp corners and the likes a bit poorly.
