    Downloaded the latest driver and the Intuos 4 now does what it's told. There is nothing clever about these sketches except that they only took a few moments to do and it's the kind of work I've always wanted to do - but digitally instead of with nylon tipped pen. I've never drawn a cat before, but the fluidity was so good that this was easy. Now I can enjoy this!
     
    And I'm learning Mac for the first time too....  :)

    Sunset got a reaction from Doc Pixel in workspace backgropund   
    Perhaps I'm the odd one out, I like the black, I think it's all shiny, new, modern, efficient looking, makes me think I'll get great results.....  :)
     
    But it's nice that it can be changed if required. I'm sticking, though :)

    Sunset reacted to GRScott in Off-Page Background as Usable Workspace   
    I believe DrawPlus had the same things as Illustrator but also had a preview button so you could picture the canvas without the off page workspace showing. That would be nice for Affinity.

    This might already be in here somewhere, but i didn't see a setting for it.
    When you drag an object off of the page onto he workspace background, the object is hidden behind the gray area, reminiscent of how Photoshop works.
     
    Usually in vector drawing apps, the off-page background is an area that you can use as workable space to place extra vectors or elements you want to edit separately or save or use later. 
     
    I tend to use this area quite a bit, not sure about anyone else. Are you planning an option to allow the gray area to show vectors on top instead of hiding them?
     
    Screenshot shows side-by-side with illustrator to demonstrate. I never know if I'm explaining things right, haha!

    Sunset reacted to Lenzflair in Resource Folder   
    One of the things I really like in Page Plus is the resource folder where you can just drop elements that you use regularly into the resource folder then just drag it onto the workspace when you need it. I think something like that would be useful here particularly when you make your own complex shapes that you may want to re use frequently.

    Sunset got a reaction from Seanyboy in A Format Painter Tool?   
    Thanks Sean, I was just looking for this really useful feature. Personally I hope that it eventually becomes a reality rather than relying on copy and paste style - and I use it most often on text (as it happens).

    Sunset reacted to Lon in MacArkansas in Is this enough Mac?   
    Found a 15" MacBook Pro, with 4GB RAM, 320GB HD, and running latest version of Mavericks, for $300 USD.  Will go and get it this afternooon.  That should run all of this software, and also provide the portability.  Will let you know how I get on with this.

    Thanks, Hils.  I have a smaller laptop PC, and have great difficulty with seeing everything as well as I'd like.  I think I'm going to take Marilyn's suggestion and get the MacBook laptop (13", I think) for portability and a bit more current specs (2009 model MacBook), but then get a stand-alone monitor, for when I need larger screen size.  I saw that Walmart has full HD Acer 20" monitors for just under $100-USD.  That's probably going to be the ticket.
