After a couple of welcome questions from users I decided to do a little work on updating the documention for SketchBlock. In particular I focused this update on the selection tools, that allow masking off areas of the image / layer when painting and performing other operations.

https://www.broad.ology.org.uk/amiga/s ... block/selectiontools.html

SketchBlock Pro is available to buy from AmiStore, or if you have problems with that can be bought direct from myself. (Send me an email...)

Feel free to ask questions here, point out any typos etc

Been meaning to ask, I'm thinking of changing my script http://os4depot.net/share/video/misc/thumbnailmaker.lha from ArtEffect to Sketchbook, but I couldn't figure out the arexx command to load an image into the clipboard?

Thanks for the question. It's actual done by the EXPORTLAYER function. It's essentially a save via the builtin datatypes saver which the target set to the clipboard.

So to save the current layer to the clipboard you do:

EXPORTLAYER CLIP 0

More info at

https://www.broad.ology.org.uk/amiga/s ... ck/arexx.html#EXPORTLAYER

To do the opposite ie "paste" in a layer from the clipboard you do

IMPORTLAYER CLIP 0

https://www.broad.ology.org.uk/amiga/s ... ck/arexx.html#IMPORTLAYER

In both cases CLIP is a keyword that specifies the clipboard.device UNIT number.

I bought this prog. around 2 weeks ago but I am still to busy to study docs.. Would be great to know how to switch SB to new full screen instead of windowed on workbench screen. Thanks a lot. Good app.

Thanks for buying SketchBlock, hope you have fun with it.

SketchBlock uses the public screens system.

Check that the public screen name is set to SketchBlock (open menu->settings->edit). It's the default so it should be.

Open the systems screens prefs SYS:Prefs/Screens and create one called "SketchBlock", make sure it's set to open and close automatically.

As an advanced step the Themes drawer in the sketchblock directory contains a gui.prefs and pallete.prefs file to make the window colurs and a couple of system gadgets match the sketchblock KS gadget theme.

These are setup by selecting the use custom setting file checkbox and setting the paths to the file as

GUI tab <path to sketchblock>/Themes/KS/Presets/gui.prefs
Pallette tab <path to sketchblock>/Themes/KS/Presets/palette.prefs

These last two steps are only needed if using the KS theme, if using AISS theme then just use "Like Workbench" for all screen settings.

Now when you start SketchBlock the next time it should open on it's own screen.

thanks for the update Andy. My teenage daughter has been using SketchBlock quite a bit this past year for her high school art class which makes me smile when I see her for hours in front of my X1000 instead of seeing her constantly on her chrome book or phone
