Since it's not easy, if even possible,
to find descriptions for all of these icons in the
Painter 7 User Guide, here
are illustrated explanations and some references to locations in
the Painter 7 User Guide
if you want to read more:
The Drawing Mode Pop-up allows
you to choose one of the three icons to tell Painter 7 where you
want to paint or apply some Effects menu options.
Choosing one of these icons, described
from left to right, tells Painter 7 to paint or apply some Effects
menu options both inside and outside the selection, only
outside the selection, or only inside the selection. To read
more, see the Painter 7 User Guide, Chapter 12 Using Selections
and User Masks, the section named:
"Working with Selections".
The Image Size Pop-up window
displays the image's Width and Height in pixels, and
its Resolution (or ppi).
It also shows how your image fits on the currently selected printer
paper size and orientation. To read more, see the Painter 7 User
Chapter 3 Basics, the sub-section
"Image Size Information".
For lack of a better name, if there
is an official one, I call this icon the "Locator" Popup.
It allows you to quickly view the
entire image while still zoomed in to work on detail. The red rectangle
shows what area of the image is currently displayed in the image window.
If you click and drag the red
rectangle to another location, that location will then be displayed
in the image window, still at the current Zoom percent.
This is a very convenient feature
as it both lets you see the effect of your work on the overall image,
and lets you move quickly to another location to continue working,
without the bother of having to zoom out, move the image with the Grabber
tool, zoom in again, then use the Grabber tool to reposition the image.
Among other ways of controlling Zoom
percent, you can click and drag the Zoom Scale slider or type
a specific Zoom percent number in the Numerical Setting Field (that's
I call it). In the image above,
the Numerical Setting Field has been clicked and it's ready to have
a new number typed in.
