"OK, let's address the 'stops responding to pen input' issue first.
Are you on mac, or windows? And if mac, running the 32 bit app, or the 64 bit app?
So we are aware of this issue that apple introduced on an osx update. That i think…"
Every once in a while, SA stops responding to pen input, and I have to shut it down.When I start it up again, SA acts like I started it up the first time, -all my personal settings have disappeared, and the default layout is my only selection possible.Where does SA keep those preference settings? I'd like to restore them from by backup, or at least copy them to a safe location.ThanksSee More
Thanks for your comment. Obviously i'm often a pretty busy guy. But i don't kill myself as much as i used to so that's probably why everybody's still waiting for version 4 of Studio Artist to be finished up (it will happen soon i promise). Beside, doing the art, music, and programming is fun so it's probably what i'd be doing anyway in some form. I do wish i had more time for the music stuff these days which has to take a back seat to getting v4 finished.
The business part of running a business can kind of suck to be honest, like spending most of today dealing with mundane and utterly stupid business tax garbage that has nothing to do with art or programming or technical innovation or anything useful for that matter, but it's unfortunately a necessary evil to getting things done in this world.
Tony thanks for the query about Emergence. Yes to both questions about size and substrate. The original file has the resolution to print up to and beyond a 40x40 print and yes canvas could be an option. I usually don't print some of the more subtle stuff to canvas because I find that the texture obscures the finer details. I usually print them on Hannemuhle William Turner or something similar.
If I need additional resolution beyond the original I use Photozoom Pro (s-spline) to enlarge. I pretty much try to generate 60+MB files now so I don't have to go that route. A couple of my earlier works were done as smaller pieces so I had to res them up.
I appreciate your very generous comments about my work! Thank you.

More than 10 years ago, Anyango Yarbo-Davenport and I did some serious work together, you can see some it here: https://vimeo.com/showcase/2985621

As I am slowly getting to grips with SA, I find features that make me smile!My latest find... Randomize!I know for most this may seem a strange selection, but the reason is simple... there is so much you can change that you could be here for a long, long time!For example: I'm working my way through, Image Operation and I'm looking at Border blur. I then open the Editor and what do I see... loads of options and I must admit, most just pass me by. However, I know in the past I've spent ages…See More
"I'm still exloring IpOps... there is so much! Amazing!
There are sometimes options/presets etc, that produce results that I don't think I will use, so I'm considering deleting these. Would this remove those options in that particular…"
"Yes you are right... I was going off on a wrong tangent! Sorry about that, I do have a tendency to waffle on!
