One of the great things about Painter 12 is its new user interface. Not only does it look modern and offer more functionality, it's ultra-customizable ... if you know how. Luckily, today I'm going to start a series teaching you all the tricks to editing Painter's configuration files so you can build your own customized version of Painter.
Over the next few posts, I'll be showing you how to:
In previous versions, the Painter user interface (UI) was built using an in-house, closed UI toolkit. It served us well for many years, but it was starting to look it age and was getting difficult to maintain on modern operating systems. So, for version 12, we've started transitioning our UI to a new, more flexible toolkit. The foundation of our new UI is built on a file format called Extensible Markup Language (XML). We've been using XML files for many years as the back-end for our brush libraries, so it seemed like a natural choice to extend to our UI.
Very cool! Can't wait to see the next one...'-}}
Very nice! This is what I was hoping for. I for one like the new icons and do not bother me one bit. What I would like for software companies to do is to open the ability to skin their software. (such as this.) I used to love the Sonique music player. Mainly because of the ability to skin the player.
It would be awesome to see a community built around custom UI skins. Thanks for sharing! :)
