    Smile Cool bug or feature! / stencil visibility

    Sometimes i think stencils get in the way of seeing how am i doing, especially when i only apply some fine layers of airbrush paint. So i been waiting for a way to hide the stencil, but not lose its effect.

    I found one!

    If you hold H or V you can work without the stencil getting in the way, but that can lead to trouble navigating and makes the use of other keys awkward. But if you hold H or V and drag the canvas with left click, the stencils remain hidden as long as you hide, then unhide them.

    I think it is technically a bug, but in practice it is a feature. Yay for happy accidents!

    Hey, that's useful. Thanks for that)

    Yet that reminds me about Russian joke on programming. It's a kidding text-instructions on exercises for programmers. Here's a piece of it you reminded me about:

    Found a bug!
    Fixing, fixing, fixing... Fixed!
    Found a bug!
    Fixing, fixing, fixing... Can't fix. It's a feature!
    Continue the exercises...

    Nice tip, definitely a bug that needs to stay as a feature.
