Extras to Download from the Corel FTP Server

Written by Jinny Brown

The following list includes a lot of extra things we can download from the Corel FTP server. I didn't include patches/Updates but you'll find them on the Corel FTP server if and when you need them. Go to the main Painter directory and you'll see folders for most Painter versions:

About Color Talk in Painter IX.5 and Painter X:

In Painter IX.5 and Painter X Color Talk has no default keyboard shortcut assigned as the earlier version keyboard shortcut, N key, is assigned to the new Eraser tool.

Since I'm in the habit of avoiding the N key (never use Color Talk), in Customize Keys Preferences, I assigned the earlier version keyboard shortcut, N key, to Color Talk. That automatically removed that keyboard shortcut, N key, from the Eraser tool.

Since I seldom use the Eraser tool, it was no big loss to me, but just in case I ever wanted to use it on a repeat basis (as when I wrote the New Tutorial for the January 2007 Painter IX newsletter, The Painter Canvas) I assigned Shift+E to the Eraser tool. Shift+E makes more sense to me than the N key for the Eraser tool.
