    Default Canvas Size

    AR automatically set up a blank canvas based on the device/monitor's resolution after launch the program. Is there a way to change default canvas size to something other than the device's resolution? thanks in advance.

    Hello javafuel,
    Unfortunately not at the moment.
    My favoured workaround for this is to have a collection of home made "templates" which I keep handy and launch AR by opening one of these.
    For example if I want to do some pencil drawing I have a .ptg file already to go with my favoured dimensions and canvas texture that I will want. Like wise for oil painting, watercolours etc…
    Another advantage with this method is that specific toolboxes can also be saved within these template canvases ready for use.
    The one thing to remember, is to do a Save As… at the start of your work so that you don't accidentally overwrite the template canvas!
    Hope this proves useful to you.

    You can also create your own canvas presets and load them from the New Canvas menu.

    That's a great idea! Thanks for the tips.
