    Dimensional stencil shaping for shapes???

    It appears the shape stencils (circles, squares, etc.) can be enlarged or shrinked only by keeping the dimensions proportional. Is there a way to change the dimensions disproportionally: for example, changing a square to a variable size rectangle, or a circle to a variable size oval, etc. ? Would be very helpful to select a shape and drag only one dimension.
    Thanks for any assistance. -- Byron

    Currently the stencils don't support non-uniform scaling, although it's on our list of potential improvements.

    What you could do would be to color in the stencil in black in ArtRage, export it, open it in some third party software that will let you change the proportions, crop it if necessary, save it, and then move that file to your ArtRage stencils folder. Not an ideal solution as it still won't give you instant rescaling but, just a work-around.

    I found a pic. of a top notch artists triangle on ebay, it has a load of circle\oval stencils in the center of it, i just used this photo to make a stencil.....i didn't even bid!
    I don't have enough skill to be called an artist, i'm more of a hardcore doodler
