We have just uploaded a 4.5.4 update to ArtRage that addresses a couple of issues found in 4.5.3 and adds support for Windows '2-in-1' device switching to the product.


  1. Fixed a problem that could make the preview area in adjustment dialogues undraggable on devices that have specific combinations of Wacom drivers and Realtime Stylus input.
  2. Fixed a bug that prevented canvas presets clearing Paper Patterns if they did not contain one themselves.
  3. Fixed a crash that could occur if a document with a damaged reference image entry was loaded and the references panel opened.
  4. Updated OS X build settings to restore 32-bit functionality to the application.

Windows 2-in-1 Support:

ArtRage 4.5.4 includes support for Windows devices that include a '2-in-1' switch. In general these devices are tablet devices with a docking system, or laptop devices with the ability to switch to tablet mode. ArtRage can be set to respond when compatible devices switch between desktop/tablet mode by turning on the 2-in-1 preference in the Advanced section of the Preferences Panel. When a compatible device switches to Tablet mode, ArtRage increases the scale of its user interface slightly to aid touch accessibility. This preference is turned off by default.

Important Note: Due to the way 2-in-1 switching is handled by Windows, devices that do not support it (including desktop computers) report to applications that they are always in Tablet mode. Please do not turn this preference on if you are not sure that you are using a 2-in-1 device.
