90. Settings window details

ibisPaint features functions that allow the user to customize the user interface.

Open the ① Tool Selection window and press the ② Settings button.

① Quick Eyedropper … Choose whether to activate the Quick Eyedropper by holding down on the canvas, when using the brush tool. Turn it off when Quick Eyedropper is unintentionally displayed. If it is on, and Quick Eyedropper is unintentionally displayed, hold down with 2 fingers, without letting go, to cancel the Quick Eyedropper function.
② View Rotation … Choose whether to rotate the canvas with 2 fingers.
③ Window Color … Select the window background color to be black or white.
④ Interpolation on Zoom In … If the interpolation is on when the canvas is enlarged for display, it will appear blurred, and if it is off, it will look pixelated.
⑤ Extracting Drawing after Importing … Choose to display an alert to confirm, "Would you like to extract line drawing?" after importing the image. Even when it is turned off, there is a "Line Drawing Extraction" filter among other filters. It should be turned off, if you rarely extract line drawings.
⑥ Show Label in Tool Selection … If this is turned off, tool names are not displayed, when Tool Selection window is opened.
⑦ Use Pressure Sensitivity … If the Pressure Sensitivity is turned on, fine adjustments can be made to the brush pressure. It will appear gray if Pressure Sensitivity does not apply to a particular device or a compatible digital stylus is not connected.

It is set such that going ① left yields lesser brush pressure, going ② right yields greater brush pressure.

When the curve on the graph is raised ① higher, the line gets thicker, and when it is brought ② lower, the line gets thinner. Depending on the brush, thicker lines are more opaque, and conversely, thinner lines are less opaque.
To return the brush pressure to the initial level, press ③ reset button.

Fine adjustments can be made for Pressure Sensitivity. While there are 3 knobs initially, it is possible to add knobs by tapping on the curve without knobs, in order to make a more detailed setting.

Knobs can be deleted by dragging them outside of the frame.

① Touch Offset … If it feels a bit off, when drawing with a stylus or a finger, tap the ①arrow for Touch Offset to change the positioning. This function is mainly for the stylus.
② Supported Stylus… It shows a list of digital styluses that are compatible with ibis Paint. A digital stylus refers to a stylus with batteries, and is capable of communicating with a device. Many of the digital styluses are compatible with the pressure sensitivity.
③ Selecting a digital stylus … Select a digital stylus to connect a digital stylus with ibis Paint. Please refer to the user's manual for your digital stylus for instructions on how to connect it.
④ Settings … This is a screen to set up the digital stylus, after it is connected to ibis Paint. Some digital styluses do not have a settings screen.
⑤ Palm Rejection … When the Palm Rejection is turned on, after connecting a digital stylus, like Wacom's stylus, it becomes possible to draw with your palm resting on the surface. Unfortunately, the surface becomes unresponsive to fingers as well, such that it will not be possible to zoom-in or zoom-out the canvas. It is convenient to assign Palm Rejection on/off button to Button 1 on the stylus.
⑥ Stylus Button 1 … Some digital styluses have 1 or 2 buttons. If a stylus has at least 1 button, it is possible to assign a function to the button. It is possible to assign Undo function or swapping Brush/Eraser functions to the button 1.
⑦ Stylus Button 2 … Some digital styluses have 1 or 2 buttons. If a stylus has at least 2 buttons, it is possible to assign a function to the button 2.
⑧ Save Bucket Settings … Bucket and Magic Wand settings is initialized to the default settings when back to My Gallery. This switch should be turned on, in order to save previous settings after reentering the canvas screen.
⑨ Save Stabilizer Settings … The settings in the Stabilizer window, except for the Stabilizer Value and Stabilizer Method, return to the default settings, when you back to My Gallery. This switch should be turned on, in order to save previous settings after reentering the canvas screen.
⑩ Show Tutorials Again … Tap on this button to view the tutorials again.
⑪ Reset All Brush Parameters … All brush parameters will be returned to the default values.
⑫ Reset Color Palettes … Color palettes on the color window will be returned to the default values.
⑬ Uninstall Fonts … If the storage space for downloaded fonts becomes a concern, this button deletes all downloaded fonts.

To delete individual fonts, tap on the ① Trash, located on the right side of the Font List window.
