    Second document window?

    Does anyone know if its possible to have your document open in a second window in Painter 9.5 (as you can in Photoshop)?

    As far as I know, Clone is the way, but the cloned window is not affected by changes in the main window, for live preview in smaller window of the current window, only the info palette does the job.

    Yes, but the procedure is different, and I can't believe how long it took me (too many years, even after we were given in Painter IX or Painter IX.5, the ability to set the Tracing Paper percentages to something more visible) to figure this out:

    1. With your working image active, use File > Quick Clone.

    2. In the upper right corner of the Clone, click and hold the Tracing Paper icon, then drag down to see a list of Tracing Paper percentages.

    3. Choose 10% to get the closest to full Opacity.

    4. Now position your working image and Clone side by side and paint a brush stroke on the working image. Notice the brush stroke also appears on the Clone.

    5. If you can't work comfortably with the working image and Clone side by side, use Ctrl+Tab (Windows) or Command+Tab (Mac) to toggle back and forth between the working image and Clone.

    6. To continue working in a new Painter session, you'll need to open both the working image and Clone, then make sure that in the File > Clone Source flyout menu, the working image file name is checked.

    Please do not PM me with Painter questions. Instead, post them here where everyone can benefit from them. Thanks!
