    The F-key not to press - bug or feature?

    I don't know if it's a bug, an Easter egg or a feature, but then again with these Rageguys you newer know. Might just be a cat-thing. Anyway here goes;

    First off - save your work (to not loose anything). Open a new painting and doodle away.

    Press F11 (the F-key not to press).
    Now everything kind of locks. In a strange way. As if the application interface is put on hold.

    The cursor doesn't move when I move with mouse/tablet. But when I paint it re-focuses and does move. I can't select tools using the tools-palette, but keyboard shortcut works.

    I can select drop-down menus (but I can not see when I do it). Tool properties and colour area works (also blinded).

    It is kind of fun working blinded. Spurs you creativity in a whole new way wouldn't you say?

    Fortunately pressing F11 again will bring the application back to normal.

    Best regards,
    DoodLS

    Hi Folks,

    F11 does not always start things up again!!!!!

    Artrage had to be shut down using ctl-alt-del. Then it starts calling in Microsoft.

    Restarting it after that puts everything back to normal.

    Thanks for that!

    The F11 key behavior was a function of our toolkit, basically stopping the process, which still exists in 2.2. However, this has been removed for our next update.

    I'm afraid that one's no easter egg, but it will behave better in future.
