    Gallery Page on your website

    I don't know if this is the right place to post this but. How about a page for your artists to post samples of their work they have done with your software. I don't see any links on your site leading to a page for that.
  2. Please please please. I am on a Mac Pro running Snow Leopard. I have a number of older programs that I will loose usability if I upgrade to Mavrick and that, unfortunately is ALSO the last update I can do before Apple digs into my pockets for a new computer. Something I don't have the money for. To be frank, a few years ago when Adobe CC came out, I tracked down and purchased CS6 specificially to get away from Adobe's Creative Cloud Computing....can't stand it. Yes, I know I need to know how to use it and I am sure I will when the time comes, but for now, NO NO NO. Adobe, go away and peddle your CC somewhere else. Worse, I have 0 income at this point. So please, if your thinking of doing something to help us OLDER Mac users to adopt to your software, please go for it. I use Illustrator A LOT and to frank, I love so many of your features and capabilities that I am looking forward to some day actually playing with and working with your software.
  3. Ok, yes I am sure this is a massive stretch and a very unrealistic request but hey, if we don't ask, then who knows if it will ever happen right. So, sometimes, when I am putting together a project, I am looking at composition and design. I use software like Google Sketchup to get models to drop into Sketchup and arrange here and there to get my ideas. Then I have to snap an image of the layout and redrop it into illustrator, outline (trace) it and go from there. I can't tell you how often I was thinking it would be cool to just be able to open one program and in one window, create the 3D layout, then copy and paste it into another page where as the 3D layout turns into a nice 2D flat vector image to work with. Again, yes I know this is unrealistic and asking for a lot, but hey, does it hurt to ask. So, 3D Design capabilities like Google Sketchup with full compatibility with your wonderful vector software. That is my request. :D
  4. I use Corel Painter, but often for sketching first before I consider doing any painting. I do this because I want to have a digital copy of my sketches and I don't want to have to scan everything in all the time from a paper+pencil pad. When I do use the sketch pad, I will often scan that sketch and drop it into Painter to play with. Clean it up, rework it, etc. Sometimes I take that sketch further and play with painting it using Painters transparent page feature to sketch and paint over another image as well. Can your software incorporate more of the Corel Painter like qualities. Tools that can incorporate pressure of digital pens/paint brushes, etc. Perhaps giving people an opportunity to use their Stylis pad more with your software. Yes, I do understand that your software is for Vector art, but incorporating something like this feature with Vector art opens up a lot of options. Drawings that start as a sketch then evolves into clean vector art like comic books, architectural renderings, and other various Graphic Art styles. Having pencils, pens, and paint brushes that accomodate pressure, style, and skill beyond just click click click offer a great deal more.
  5. Multiple pages, not just multiple art boards. The art boards are great and can be used as pages, but it then requires a lot of scrolling or zooming in and out. Here is what I envision being able to do. I open the software, grab my stylis pad and start sketching. Now, instead of creating a new layer, I create a new page with some keyboard combination of some sort. (for example, perhaps "Shift+Alt+N" for a New Alternate Page? ) At this point, I now resume sketching. After a while, I want to review what I have sketched and so, this time I hit "Shift+F9" (because F9 is what apple uses for viewing open files as thumbnail images) and all the "Pages" that I had created show up similar to when I hit F9 on my Mac to see what files I have open. I will see thumbnails (larger if not many pages, smaller if lots of pages). I can then click on any of those thumbnails to open that page up to resume working on it, view it, etc. Each page would work the same as it always has when working on a document, with the multiple layers, art boards, multiple pages on the one artboard, etc. But the beauty here is, multiple pages for sketching, creating drafts, etc. Just like using a Paper & Pencil Sketch pad. Heck, if possible, get some cool page flipping look to make flipping through the pages possible as well even. Then not only would the "Shift+F9" help, but one can flip though their pages like a sketch pad and enjoy viewing their stuff that way too.
