First, I have to heap praise upon the developers: ArtRage is a delight to use!
I've been playing around with the starter edition, and there are just a few issues I've experienced that I'd like some help with before I purchase the full version.
Other than these issues (and maybe they're just something I'm doing wrong) everything works magnificently. Kudos!
- Is there any way to make the canvas a solid white instead of a visible texture? In Corel Painter the texture of the paper affects whatever media is painted on top of it, but the canvas itself is a solid colour.
- I can't seem to scroll around the canvas with the pen without acidentally painting on the canvas. (I'm using a Wacom Bamboo Fun.) When I hold down the topmost pen button and drag around the canvas, the screen scrolls, but a small "blob" of paint appears where I first click the pen, even if I'm not in contact with the tablet.
- I'd like to use a "blunt" marker that doesn't change size based on tablet pressure. Is this possible?
- Finally, I'd like to use very high resolutions to make printable-quality images. While I really appreciate being able to set the canvas size and dpi, the size of each media type (pencil, marker, oils) and the paper grain don't change to match the dpi. Moreover, I can't seem to change the size of the pencil at all, and the brush and marker sizes seem to have too small of a maximum for 600 dpi. (But, again, I don't really want larger sized brushes with lots of bristles---just higher resolution ones.)
