    Can you change the background color or am I stuck with lime green?

    I'm sure there must be a way to change the background color to get started but I clicked on everything I can find in every way I can think of and I still can't find out how to change the background color. I find that this app is not intuitive at all. A little frustrating as a matter of fact.

    Hello rkstudio and welcome to the ArtRage forums
    To change the UI colours, go to; ArtRage Preferences > Interface.
    There you can choose from a selection of alternative tint themes for the tools and panels, or by clicking on the ‘Control Tint Colour’ chip, you can set your own tint colour.
    To set the background colour behind the canvas click on the colour chip next to ‘Background Colour’.

    There is also the Bucket Fill tool in both the pc and tablet apps.

    On your tablet (if that is what you mean by "app" in your OP), tap the bucket up the top of the tool list on the left, choose a colour bottom right, then tap the "canvas". It will fill with your chosen colour.

    On your pc, click on the "Fill" icon in the tools section bottom left, choose a colour bottom right, then click the "canvas".

    Just to clarify, we were talking about the background behind the canvas, this answer talks about changing the canvas itself - which may actually have been what the original poster was asking, but I'm guessing 'lime green' referred to the default highlights ArtRage uses.
