auto paint pause

As I understand auto painting, once started, then stopped, a start again starts from the beginning, all over again.

My suggestion is for a "pause" button so that if started again, it will simply continue from where it stopped, not re-art from beginning again.

I know if during a pause if I change something, a pause may not be possible; that is OK....but if that can be done too, all the better.

This would make auto paint interruption possible.

Thanks,

Doug

Yes some nice effects can be done by auto painting on a new layer for each start; so a restart after a pause, done on a new layer, would also be helpful to be able to do.
