    Unhappy Help

    I hope I gotten the right forum for this, any who,
    I've been using ArtRage for a while now, and it's been fun and amazing.
    But i don't know if this is because I haven't updated (I don't think I've been getting updates), or some other reason.

    It won't let me open any of the panels (Layers, Tracing, etc.)
    I've tried to figure out why, but I couldn't find any solutions.

    That's odd. Locking panels to force an update doesn't really sound like an Ambient Design kind of move, so it's unlikely due to you not having updated. You'll probably need some direct help from one of the ArtRage team, so in the meantime you may want to list which version of ArtRage you're having the issue with, along with the type of OS you're using. It'll help them troubleshoot the problem for you.
    Nothing is easy to the unwilling.

    Yep, what Someonesane said. That's not intended behaviour at all.

    • What can you see onscreen? (e.g. can you see the small 'closed' menus?) Or have they wandered off somewhere?
    • If they've vanished, or vanish when you click on them, can you go to Edit > ArtRage Preferences > Panels and click 'Reset Panel Positions' (ArtRage 3/4)

    If that doesn't solve it:

    Can you toggle them open and shut by going to:

    • Tools > [menu*] Options (ArtRage 2)
    • View > [menu] Panel (ArtRage 3/4)

    *e.g. Layers, Tracing

    And if you still have trouble:
    • What version do you have? (Go to Help > About ArtRage)
    • And what operating system?
    • Do you have multiple monitors?
    • And are you seeing any other odd behaviour?
