    Paper Frustration

    ...
    I've been playing around with painter, and I've followed what the help files say in order to get a different paper set... but it doesn't seem to work... I have painter IX, and I'm just utterly lost at how to use a different paper, since I've tried all it says on the help files...

    Can anyone tell me how to do it?

    Hi,

    To use another Paper than the one that's currently selected:

    1. Open the Papers palette (Window > Show Papers).

    2. Click the small triangle on the right side of the thumbnail in the upper right corner of the Papers palette. The drop down list of Papers opens (or the list of thumbnails, if you've chosen to display the Papers as thumbnails instead of as a word list).

    3. The currently selected Paper is highlighted in the drop down list and displayed in the Preview window.

    4. Highlight the Paper you want to use. Notice the Preview window is updated to display the newly selected Paper. Now that Paper is the one you'll be using until you select another Paper or load another Papers library and select a Paper form that Papers library.

    To load another Papers library:

    1. Click the triangle at the right side of the Papers palette name bar to open the menu, and choose Open Library.

    2. Navigate to the folder containing the Papers library file you want to load.

    3. Highlight the Papers library file name, and click the Open button. Now the new Papers library is loaded and ready to use.

    You're welcome, Janooh!

    I'm glad to hear that my instructions seem to have made sense.

    Hi folks,

    Rizo is right about not all brush variants interacting with Paper texture.


    Brush variants that interact with Paper texture have the word "Grainy" in their Subcategory name.

    For example:
    1. Open a new white Canvas (PPI and dimensions don't matter as long as you have enough room to paint a few test brush strokes).
    2. Choose the Charcoal's Charcoal variant.
    3. Restore the Charcoal variant to its default state (Brush Selector menu > Restore Default Variant).
    4. Open the Brush Controls' General palette.
    5. Read the Subcategory name: Grainy Hard Cover
    6. Look at the Property Bar and notice it includes the Grain slider and Grain percent field where you can either adjust the slider or type the percent you want.
    7. Choose black as the Main Color.
    8. In the Papers palette, choose the Paper named Thick Handmade Paper.
    9. On the Property Bar, change the brush variant controls to Size: 30 and Opacity: 30%.
    10. Paint a brush stroke on the Canvas.
    11. On the Property Bar, change the Grain control to Grain: 10%.
    12. Paint another stroke on the Canvas, compare it with the first stroke you made and notice the effect is very different.
    13. Restore the Charcoal variant to its default state.
    14. In the Brush Controls' General palette, change the Subcategory to Soft Cover
    15. On the Property Bar, change the brush variant controls to Size: 30 and Opacity: 30%.
    16. Paint another brush stroke on the Canvas.
    17. Compare the three brush strokes and notice the third stroke doesn't include the Paper texture, though you may see the brush dabs spaced a little resulting in overlapping circles visible along each side of the stroke.



    Merry Christmas! and Happy Holidays to everyone!
