Do I have to retrain X4 to find my brushes, patterns, picture tubes, etc. one folder at a time? Or can I add a directory tree with all my older PSP custom saved files to the default paths?
And then there are color management preferences, file format optimization preferences, etc. all lost?
And now I can't see any of my image file thumbnails with X4 when I open files!! What is this with Corel & PSP and Windows icon/thumbnails? I just reinstalled (again) that klugey add-on to see my image thumbnails for X3 recently (on Windows 7 Home), but X4 does not show the image thumbnails: this is just so really ugly!
PSP still has the most bang for the buck, with painting, photo editing, vector graphics, etc. BUT too many old problems are not being addressed: klunky print layout issues and bugs, the thumbnails, etc. There are lists of old problems, important items that got taken away, etc. Please fix these!
I won't complain at all about the next $40 upgrade IF I get back the ability to enter coordinates for crop and select rectangles, AND see my thumbnails AND retain my customization profile AND have a light/neutral workspace option!

When I tested PSPX4 with a batch of files with a script that was CPU intensive it was less prone to crash, but I think I still got a crash here and there of regular use. I just bought the box version and my trial ran out a while ago so can't test it for specifics until I get my activation code in the mail. But I've rarely had an issue with X3, so maybe it's a moot point. I used http://www.majorgeeks.com/CleanMem_d5993.html and most of my issues went away. However it was not a regular occurrence for me to begin with so I'm not particularly a good judge of if it's doing it's job.
At any rate, PSPX4 and X4 Ultimate are both the same price right now to upgrade, $30. But according to the website it's today only so if you do it now would be a good time. The Nik Color Effects 3.0 that the Ultimate comes with sells for $100 more if you're into that stuff.

I joined this board after having just installed PSP X4. I had been running PSPP X3. My wife is running PSP 9 on her old XP and is quite happy with it, thank you very much.
Anyway, the reason I am writing (and I DON'T know if this is the correct forum) is that when I installed PSPP X3 Ultimate, I ended up with a plethora of custom brushes, bump maps, textures, et cetera, that came with the program as ZIP files. When I installed PSP X4 Ultimate, ALL of those custom things disappeared! I couldn't believe it at first, so I ran PSPP X3 and looked for various files with which I had been experimenting. PSPP X3 couldn't find them. I went to the folder where I had installed all of these extra files, and all of the folders were there ... completely empty!
This leads to my question: does anyone know how I can retrieve and restore just those (brushes, maps, swatches, textures, picture tubes, etc.) files that went missing during the install/upgrade from PSPP X3 to PSP X4? Can I reinstall PSPP X3 and selectively install just those files? Or must I reinstall all of PSPP X3? And if I reinstall all of PSPP X3, will that negatively affect PSP X4?
I apologize if this is the wrong place for this post, and I apologize if this question has been posted elsewhere, but, as I said, I am new to this board, and I am just poking my way around trying to learn things about PSP X4.
