Corel Painter 12.2 Update

Corel Painter 12.2 Update Service Pack 1

CorelPainter 12.2 Update Service Pack 1 will updatethe latest release of Corel Painter 12. The new version includes key fixes plus new and enhanced features.

Optimizing memoryusage (Mac 64-bit)
If you’re running Corel Painter 12 on a Mac 64-bitsystem, and the system has enough available memory (RAM), Corel Painter can nowdetect and use the additional memory to improve speed and performance. Bydefault, Corel Painter is set to use 80% of the available memory. However, youcan change the amount of memory that is allocated to Corel Painter from thePerformance page of the Preferences dialog box. You can also view the amount ofmemory that is available to the application.
 
To change thememory allocation settings

  1. Choose CorelPainter 12 > Preferences > Performance.
  2. Adjust the Memoryusage slider.

The Painter MemoryExtender setting allows Corel Painter to access thesystem’s additional memory. The check box is enabled by default. Disabling thecheck box makes the additional memory inaccessible to Corel Painter.

Important: You must restartPainter for the performance settings to take effect (View Options excepted).

Layer Improvements

There have been many improvements to the quality oflayers and selections. A broad range of defects have been addressed thatinclude preventing common crashes (across all media types and especially realwet oil), improved stability and accuracy of the UI and the stability andquality of selections.

The following issues were addressed in this update:

  • When performing a transformation, the layer that is currently selected in the Layers panel now keeps its focus in the document window.
  • When dragging and dropping a layer during a transformation, the correct layer is now selected.
  • Pressing Shift and then clicking on layers no longer selects all layers (Windows).
  • The layer composite method no longer switches to Gel when using the Eraser tool.
  • You can now easily move layers within a layer group.
  • The UI now refreshes when pasting grouped layers.
  • UI items are no longer cut off and it's now easier to distinguish between enabled and disabled UI controls (Windows 8).
  • When using a tablet, palettes now remain docked when expanding or contracting tabs.
  • When using the Rubber Stamp tool and then exiting the application, the default brush is no longer set to the Cloner brush.
  • When using the Rubber Stamp tool for the first time, the source reference point no longer jumps to bottom of the page.
  • You can now set more than one OS Function Key for Painter shortcuts (Mac).
  • Various instabilities in areas such as layers, brushes, cloning, and movies were addressed on both Windows and Mac.

If you experience any issues afterinstalling this update, we recommend that you reset your workspace to ensurethat all of the new features appear correctly. You can reset your workspace tothe factory default settings by holding down the Shift key when starting theapplication. A dialog box appears to confirm the restoration of the factorydefault settings.
