Hello fellow painters,
I'm completely new when it comes to Corel Painter and digital art in general. Right now I am looking for one specific feature, namely, is it possible to display the shortcut keys in the tooltips when I am hovering the mouse over a button. For example, if I hover over the eraser button in the toolbox, it tells me it's an eraser.
But if I want to find out which button to press to get to this tool I have to go to edit, then preferences, customize keys, select the tools category and then scroll down a bunch, to finally get to the answer 'N'.
This seems unreasonably cumbersome, considering that every other program in every other field I have used thus far would just display this information right there in the tooltip next to the name of the button.
So please enlighten me and tell me that it is only my incompetence at work and that there is an obvious solution to display the button prompts in the tooltips, because right now this issue makes me seriously considering to move away from painter before my journey even properly starts.
Thank you everyone in advance!
You are correct, that would be very nice to have shortcuts wthin the tooltips in Painter but unfortunately there is no way to turn it on.
Perhaps a less cumbersome way to find them (rather than having to go to Preferences > customize keys) is to go to the online help? Here's a link to the relevant article: http://product.corel.com/help/Painter/540111155/index.html?app=Corel-Painter&lang=en#/l2TOC62?sub=1045005
This way you can at least have it on a second monitor and/or printed out for quick reference.
Thank you so much for your reply.
Ultimately, that's what i expected. Well it can't be helped now, a cheat sheet has to do it for the moment then. Since the software is intriguing enough I can live with it, but honestly, considering all the competition on the market, I think Corel should fix this issue. First of all, it shouldn't be hard to do so, second, it would improve the experience for first time users a lot. Especially since they seem to have that in mind actually, considering the beginner layout options and in program tutorial options.
Once again, thanks a lot.
