    I can only draw straight lines?

    I just got ArtRage and I can't figure out how to draw curved lines. Every time I try to draw something it will only let me draw a straight line. Sometimes (I'm not sure how) it will let me draw a curved line, but then it will switch back to only straight lines. Does anyone know why this is happening/how to fix it so I can draw curved lines??

    Hello fss99 and welcome to the ArtRage forums
    My first thought is; have you accidentally left the ĎSnap To Gridí function On?
    Itís possible to have it active whilst the actual grid is invisible. Something that's caught out many in the past!

    I'm not sure if thats the issue, but in my menu it doesn't have that option. Is there another way to see it? Also, when I was using the demo version, I had that option in the menu and I didn't have any problems. Just after I downloaded the lite version, is when I started to have trouble.

    Hmmm. Is it 'projecting' a straight line and then filling it in after you click? Or are the lines just not following your stylus?

    Any chance 'ctrl' is being pressed down?

    Can you draw normally if you switch to the mouse instead?

    If you're on Mac OSX, this seems to be an issue with the latest driver - try installing an earlier one - anything between 6.3.11 and 6.3.18 should be fine.

    Here's a direct link to 6.3.15-2 to try:

    Have you selected Smoothing?

    That attempts to 'straighten' lines nes.

    It is projecting the line, but it doesn't happen when I use the mouse. Also, when I do press control, it doesn't do that. But the lines do follow the stylus.

    Ok, it sounds like it's definitely the latest tablet driver - it has an issue where once you press a 'sticky' key (e.g. CMD, in this case) it stays active permanently in the program. Uninstall it, clear your preferences, and install an older version (e.g. the one I linked above).
