Stupid Software  
I really hate it when they upgrade a program you use, but do it in such a way that it's like trying to learn how to use a whole new program! I had to get X3 od Paintshop since the older version I ran before didn't work on a 64 bit system. I found a cheap copy on Ebay and it came in yesterday. GAH!!! I don't like it, and I haven't even really used it yet. Just figuring out the new interface took me several hours. And I've been using PSP since 1996, so it shouldn't be that hard.

Thanks :0 It just vexes me.

Ack, it is horrible when that happens.

Since you've paid for it, I suppose you'd best persevere. Otherwise I would have recommended trying Gimp, which is free, if you were going to start using a whole new program.

I've used GIMP, but it didn't do all the things I wanted it to. Well, at least the one I used 5 odd years back didn't. I did manage to make one icon, and discovered that a lot of the stuff I've always used most is the same, so that's something.

A lot of the new upgraded software is different from the usual.

Every version I've used has been slightly different, but this one took the cake.

*nods* I agree with you.

I'm using PSP-X on a new computer with this year's new Windows OS, and while it can't handle the new Win OS graphics, and they all switch off every time I open the program, at least it didn't require "compatibility mode" like all my other favorite applications. :-) Were you using X before and are now at X3, or were you using a pre-X system? If you were pre-X and have just now met X, can I be of any help?
