    beginner question: paint shows on opposite

    So, I'm painting away happily and all of a sudden it gets so when I run off the canvas, it shows in the opposite side of the image. With a big airbrush its a problem. Anyone know what I did and how to turn it off???

    Sounds like you hit define pattern before painting.

    Well, I was working with patterns. Restarting painter, defining other patterns, both won't make it stop though...

    Save your file as a .psd file. Close the file, then reopen the .psd file. Worked for me.

    Saving the file in PSD format will lose all Painter-specific information you may need to complete the image.

    Keep the file in RIFF format and all you need to do is go to the Patterns palette menu and click Define Pattern again.

    In other words, this command works like a toggle so when you've clicked Define Pattern and don't want that effect any more, clicking Define Pattern again toggles the effect off.
