    As i say many times, its one of the best aos4 programms for today, even, if its only in begining of way. We all the time cry about layers , photoshops and gimps, and there is real competitior cooking. You even now (if you have a bit of intersest) can expand current form to anything you need , make any menu you need, put any kind of action in it.

    Anyone who want for real support native amiga software should donate to it for sure and thumbs up for Andy to working on !

    Maybe at some point Broadblues forks a SketchBlock Pro version as a commercial software.
