Steve, Alright, gotta give my students a bit of attention... I'll try to set up StrokeIt the way you said it and play around later tonight. Thanks for the info. If you want you can switch the Photoshop toolbar to be somehwat usable in ArtRage. It will keep the hotkeys that Photoshop sends so won't be completely usable but it may give you an idea of how it works when you toggle between different programs. To do this, open the ahk file in a text editor, and using the Replace All command, change Photoshop for Art Rage 3. Save the file, relaunch the ahk file. Also, see post #44 below.
