I bring this up just because I wanted you to know that the reason I use ArtRage over Sketchbook is because AR responds better on my tablet PC than Sketchbook does, and I find it very comfortable to use in tablet mode. As such I hope you guys don't get too keyboard-reliant when it comes to adding or adjusting features.
Another thing to note... I wouldn't mind seeing the Layers palette moved away from the bottom-center of the screen. Of all the palettes that's the one that "gets in the way" most often, even though it does disappear like a good boy should when I'm drawing near it.
Another thing, I tried moving an image between AR, Illustrator, PS, and back into ArtRage on my latest project. (Illustrator to create a few perfect circles and PS to resize the image from sketch resolution up to final print resolution). I'm creating "inked images" for coloring in later. When I brought the image back into ArtRage the blacks became dark gray and a canvas texture reappeared when I tried using the eraser to clean up some edges. Any suggestions on what to do differently?
I'm eagerly anticipating some dedicated "inking" tools in Artrage, and hopefully you guys will be nice enough to provide me with the "perfect stroke" tool I asked for in other threads. If that was part of the package I'd gladly buy the whole program again.
