    The Workbench mode: ouch !

    Hi,
    Is it possible to mix Workbench mode and normal mode ? Windows are fixed, it is hardto use them. I feel puzzled... Very difficult, for example, to evaluate the tools without their panels (the tool size % with its clever representation picture).

    Is there a detailed video tutorial to use the Toolbox and the Workbench. It is almost impossible forme to do anything with that Workbench mode.

    Thank you for your help !

    You can't use the corner Tool or Colour Pickers in workbench mode but you can open the panels in floating form if you prefer. Instead of clicking the button to open the panel attached to the workbench (eg. the Presets or Settings panel) Shift click the button and the original floating version will be opened. You can also open the floating version by using the Menu option to display that panel.

    Claudine,
    Also, using the Pen-Only Toolbar we (not Artrage) developed, you can do a number of additional things on top of the Artrage UI. Using it, you should be able to-

    -place Pods anywhere on the screen while in Workbench Mode, using our "Hover Icons"
    -resize to higher than 100% while in Workbench Mode, but without a keyboard
    -have access to a number of additionally very useful button and keyboard shortcuts with only the use of a pen, through the Toolbar interface.

    You can check it out here, in the Artrage thread.
    Check out and submit to the thread on Watercolor WIPs in Artrage-- lots of good tips and conversation

    Thank you Steve B for your suggestion.

    Yes, you have the real solution. I remain a little disappointed to have bought ArtRage 4... Nethertheless, and thanks to you, I feel less excluded.

    Have a good day !
