  1. I am trying to use the pixel tool to, well, draw pixels. But every time I try to use it, nothing happens. The brush tool works just fine. I have checked to make sure that: My layer is a pixel layer. The pixel layer is not locked. The pixel layer is not transparent or hidden. The pixel layer's blending mode is normal. The pixel tool's opacity is 100%. The pixel tool's hardness is 100%. The color I have selected is a different color than that on which I am drawing. Nothing seems to work. Here is a screenshot of my window, in which someone might spot what's wrong: Thanks very much in advance!
  2. Figured it out. I found instructions in the user manual under "pixel-aligned painting". It says: Use the Layers panel to select the layer that you want to work on, or create a new layer. From the Tools panel, select the Pixel tool. From the Brushes panel, select a brush thumbnail of your choice. Use hard-edged brushes from the Basic category for best results. Adjust the context toolbar settings. Select a stroke color from the Color panel. Drag on the page in the direction that you want the brush stroke to follow. What worked for me was step 3. Apparently a brush is not selected by default.
  3. It would be nice if the current grid could be converted to paths. For one thing, any pattern you can make with the grid manager, which is a lot of patterns, can instantly be part of your actual composition. For another, it would make it possible to sort of have multiple grids at once. This would be useful for me: to have both a hexagonal grid and a rectangular grid at the same time.
  4. I would like built-in support for a hexagonal grid. It would make it easier to make maps for my GURPS adventures. It's true that hexagons can be constructed from the triangular grid, but it takes extra effort to make sure they're all aligned with each other.
