You're welcome, Wade. I tried to get an image of my finished drawing from the Journal but the only option was to resume Colors!. Then when it resumed it seemed to hang. I then clicked on Play and dragged the slider to 100 and the image finally appeared. Trying to reproduce the problem, I noticed that if I move the stylus pointer while the program was resuming, it looked like progress started to be made or at least updates to the display. When I tried Play in with my current drawing made via wacom tablet, the animation never did complete. I don't know if the problem was me not waiting long enough or what.... How can one get an image of the drawing for sharing/printing/...? > Yep, 60 works well enough though that it's probably not worth a > configuration option.

Ideally, the value for "Suppress" would be calculated from the native tablet resolution and the drawing area pixel dimensions. e.g. a tablet with only 1000lpi resolution might work better with a value of 25. > I tried the earlier photo snap and it was awkward to toggle > the underlying photo image.

Maybe whiten the image slightly as if looking through paper and make it easier to have it be a visual guide independent of the drawing itself? > There appeared to be a problem with the Zoom in and > out function as zooming all the way out, and then back in > results in the canvas offset by various amounts.

You might keep track of the zoom center for each level and then just pop the stack. The problem I had would not have occurred if the zoom in and zoom out operations were inverses. The 'Center image' toolbar button is great, too. > Maybe one of the Wacom buttons could be assigned to the Frame key > event? Can this be done in xorg-dcon.conf? I think the buttons look like mouse-ish events. At any rate they can be detected and acted upon. > I've got an old serial Intuos that I'll try to get configured > this weekend.
