Painter Essentials - multitasking?

Postby terrypin » Tue Jun 29, 2010 10:08 am

Hi, first post here.

I've installed the trial version of Painter Essentials 4. I like it and reckon I'll be buying it soon. (Although as a rank amateur I suspect I won't get far beyond the presets). But one immediate thing puzzles me, unless I'm missing something obvious. Doesn't the application let me continue processing when I switch briefly to another program, or when I minimise it? At present it just stops dead in its tracks under those conditions, or when some other application automatically takes focus (like an Outlook reminder message or whatever).

I'm hoping it can be configured to do multi-tasking of that sort, given that this is a quad core CPU.

I'd also like to know if anyone found a workaround for this. It's a nearly worthless program if you have to sit and stare at it and not be able to do anything else on your computer whatsoever.

I'm sorry, but Painter Essentials is not covered by this Board. The correct forum is http://essentialscafe.com/Default.aspx

Thanks Ken, according to a few discussions on that link the program is indeed a turd. "That's just the way it is" is just to complacent for me. I'm trying out FotoSketcher and it doesn't have this hang up. But again, thanks for the link.
