    Metallic Paint Tube Gone Flat ~

    I have a painting almost completed and began a treatment with the
    "Metallic Paint Tube" selection and all I get is a colored flat line
    instead of the normal metallic, glossy tubular result.

    Attempted several maneuvers but nothing worked. In an attempt
    at a solution, I opened a blank canvas and the Metallic Paint Tube
    works just fine, displaying all of it's glossy glory ... went back to
    my painting, began using the Metallic Paint Tube choice and once
    more the metallic, shiny gloss is absent and only a flat colored paint
    line is evident. Perplexed and help!

    It sounds like the lighting had been turned off. Try pressing <F5> to toggle the lighting, or go into the canvas properties and turn on the lighting there.
    AndyRage's mantra for graphics engine code:
    "Sure - how hard can it be?"

    AndyRage,
    OMG! I followed your instructions, went into "canvas properties,"
    clicked the light icon button and PING! ... the metallic paint tube
    is back in all of it's glossy glory. Looking back, I dood the misdeed
    myself when trying different canvas settings and had no idea
    that I had turned it off. Thanks ... you are AMAZING!
