Let me start by saying I'm not a painter, and that I'm dabbling in Painter 11 watercolors.
As I was trying to paint I discovered whenever I tried to paint in what I'm calling the FACE layer, I am unable to paint in the white square. The marks you see were just me trying to find the limits of the area.
Can anyone tell me what's going on here? I'm stumped.
Thanks in advance for any help you might be able to provide.
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but it looks to me like a rendering issue that the watercolors sometimes have in Painter, which I reported as a bug a couple years ago and probably got ignored like some of the other bugs I reported. Some of the watercolor types in Painter appear to be rendered in 'cells' which are square, and for whatever reason when it glitches out, sometimes these cells fail to be rendered and as a result you can't paint back over them either. Back when I reported this issue I had figured out a way to force it to happen, but I don't think I ever came up with a way to fix it once it did, short of just creating a new watercolor layer and not painting on the bugged one.I've also been told by Corel that their Painter team 'watches these forums like a hawk' but does not reply, so if there really are any hawks out there, can we get some attention to this issue?

it's not just watercolors.
I don't know the reason why documents are broken up in squares in painter (memory management?..), but some versions had a bug where you could only paint in one set of squares in a checkerboard-like pattern, regardless of the brush type. I think last time it surfaced in painter 11.
