Last Edit : openCanvas 5.5 Toolbar - Final EXECUTABLE version The aim of this toolbar is to make the use of openCanvas 5.5, using only the stylus of any pen tablet, as efficiently as possible without needing a keyboard to use openCanvas hotkeys. Demo picture of the toolbar as it is when activated in openCanvas 5.5: 0. This last version of the toolbar is now completely stand-alone, so it works without you installing anything. All you need to do is to go to my mediafire link and download the file. Once you have the Zip file, Unzip it anywhere you want. Go inside the "openCanvas Toolbar (Final)" Folder, and Launch the "openCanvas Toolbar Final.exe). Now, the toolbar is activated. 1. In order to use the toolbar, you need to setup your wacom drivers so that one of your stylus' button will be the mouse middle button. Doing so, everytime you push that button, the toolbar will appear around your cursor, and it will disappear as soon as you stop pushing that button. To use it, you then need to keep the button pushed while interacting with the toolbar. 2. CAUTION: For the toolbar to interact perfectly with openCanvas, you need to change the settings of openCanvas so that it doesn't interfere with the toolbar. In order to do that, go to Edit/Preferences/Tools tab, and UNCHECK "Use Hand Control". 3. CAUTION : Second thing to know is that the toolbar script brings up all the windows of openCanvas even if you have closed some of them. From there, all you need to do is to select the ones you never use and put them below the ones you usually use. In my case, I've put Navigator, Info, Loupe Magnifier, and a few others behind the Pencil tab. Doing so, the Pencil settings are always in front, and I can forget about the ones behind. If you look at the screenshot, I also used the fantastic customization options of openCanvas, to put all my different tools windows, in only one main window! Why do you need to do all those things? Because the toolbar script will behave almost like the artrage brush, that is, every time you will start drawing with your stylus, all the tools windows will automatically disappear to let you see your full canvas while you are drawing. Once the stylus leaves the screen (for cintiq/tablet pcs users) or the drawing tablet, the windows reappear straight away and you can interact with them again. 4. The toolbar's icons should be self-explanatory, so I let you try them all, but there are two buttons which will have a special behaviour: The first one is the hand tool (Spacebar), and the second one is the brush size (CTRL+ALT). In order to use it easily, when you click on these buttons, the toolbar will automatically disappear, and the next Click and Drag will do the function you selected (that is moving the canvas with the hand tool, or resizing the brush). 5. OPTIONAL: I give you a quick list of the buttons' functions just in case (from the left column to the right): Cut, Copy, Paste, Delete, Move layer, Select tool, Transform selection, deselect, Undo, Redo, Previous document, Next document, Hand tool, Zoom in, Zoom out, Brush Size, Flip horizontal, Zoom 100%, Zoom to fit, Exit openCanvas and the toolbar. The new bottom lines adds New, Open, Rotations, Save buttons. 5. Now, if you are still interested in trying it out, you can download the toolbar here: HTML: http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?gytvm8srruhgg32 **Be aware that the behaviour of the mouse cursor might be slightly off when using other apps while the toolbar is running. If it is too problematic, you can stop the script anytime thanks to Tray icon. Just right click on the openCanvas Tray icon, and click EXIT. OR you can use the exit button of the toolbar to exit both the toolbar and openCanvas!** Enjoy! Below, you can see a screen capture of the toolbar (in its older version) in action in openCanvas!
