Weird looking canvas when opening Painter 2018, Painter E7 or Painter 2020

When I open any version of Painter, the canvas starts looking glitched. Is there any fix for this?

  • HI Rondam,

    Hmm, that actually looks like the "Welcome screen" that shows at startup not displaying correctly..I don't think that is a canvas. The most likely cause would be that your browser does not meet the minimum system requirements; however, it could be something else not sure. Either way if you hit "esc" hopefully the window closes and you can go file> open or file> new and paint.

    There could be other issues deeper within the application if the Welcome screen isn't working due to an incompatibility; but in the very least this will get you up and painting.
