    this would be an incredible timesaver if you nailed photoshop-painter crossover feature instead of 12<->X3.

     

    hoping to see a 64 bit mac os build next year, and mac os native gestures in the foreseeable future.

    damn, Corel, back at it again with the new bugs.

  • I downloaded what I thought was the first service pack a couple of weeks ago.  But now it just been released?  Is this the same update I already installed? 

     

    Thanks...

    This is the first update for Painter X3. Are you refering to Painter 12 perhaps?

    Thanks so much for this release. I can now copy and paste my 3744x5616 files into photoshop without a crash. Now if you'd just learn to accept photoshop clipboard content

    kdparnell,

    There was indeed a previous SP1 for both Windows and OS X which was pulled shortly after OS X 10.9 was released. I had also downloaded and applied it the day it was released (shortly before OS X 10.9 was released).

    I assume Corel pulled it so they could refer to the current update as SP1 with OS X 10.9 support. I think that one brought Painter X3 to version 13.0.1.920 (which is referred to on the download page and is still the Windows version number after applying the current SP1 download).

    The current SP1 for OS X brings version to 13.0.1.1111 (and 13.0.1.920 for Windows). To answer your question: if you are running a Mac, then you did not already install the update currently offered. If you are running a Windows based PC, then it is not clear if anything was added for the PC version, but the version number appears to suggest you may already have it.

    Of course, downloading and installing the current SP1 won't hurt in your case. ;)
