    Transparent stencil?

    Hello!
    When I use a stencil, it appears as a red, almost opaque mask. Is there a way to make it look more transparent, or colored in a different color, or maybe (that would be the best) completely invisible - but still working the way a stencil does...? So far I haven't found the way to do it - hiding the stencil stops it from working, and when it's shown, its color interferes with whatever i'm painting and thus makes it hard to use. If anybody could help me...
    Thank you in advance for any help with this problem...

    Hi there,

    Unfortunately there is not currently a way to vary the transparency of the stencils.

    Hopefully, ArtRAge 3 would come with the feature!

    I find that using a stencil in Ruler Mode helps with the colour, it turns to a white stencil in ruler mode, just right click the stencil and select ruler mode

    Dear Mikola, if you right click and hold on the stencil you can move it out of the way and off to the side,,,, maybe that isn't what you wanted to know though

    PS, Dear Silentman, Thank You very much!!!! that really works!!! as Johnny Carson used to say " I did not know that"!!!!!
