    How are these drawings saved, just in the app itself or as an image?

    I have just joined the long parade of folks where "appworld is not available in your country!" I know I am represented by two US Senators, so I think I'm still in the US! Rebooted and that did not move me into acceptable terrain. So I will seek this out later, I guess.

    (edited my questions/comments)

    Got it. First, thanks for offering this for free.

    A few questions. Once a 'Paper' is selected, how do you go back to BLANK paper. I see I can erase all of those dots but ... (NEW will blank the "paper" patterns - in other words start a new drawing)

    Reloading a drawing, well, are we stuck with Rim's awful - 1,000 plus photos since that's what I've got on my pb? I was able to SEARCH.

    When using the CURVE, it always originates in the upper left quadrant. Any way to have to open where it was left off?

    Can I load normal jpg photos or only jpeg images? (if there's a difference). A bit slow on LOADING. (I was able to load a jpg - it is just a bit slow loading)

    Not my most creative but .... thanks....

    @SCrid2000 and spencerdl and Robert Calhoun
    I am glad you appreciated the efforts...Do keep checking for newer apps from GrafixGames

    @F2
    when you press new button a blank is inserted automatically

    Curve will always be generate on the same position(top left). Currently you cant generate on the previous position, btw this is a nice feature i'll add it to its next update

    You can load .jpg, .jpeg, .png files. Loading takes time according to the size of the image you are trying to load

    Tell me if you have any more suggestion to make this app better.I'll try to implement it

    Thanks for the freebie! I would like to be able to remove the "paper" without losing the work done over it. Like just using a graph paper as a guide, then removing it to save. If possible. thanks again.

    Yes, I guess that I what I had expected. Bring up a "grid-template" draw and then remove only the grid. That's why I asked my question, too.

    Grafix - can you recommend any web sites that have uncoloured images or scenery that can be used for painting?

    Thanks for the application. Any chance of adding triangular dot grid and plain paper backgrounds. Plain paper would give the option of removing the background. Also could you add a straight line tool?

    Cheers

    Nice drawing app. I see you have a nice Curve tool - I have not seen this feature in most of the other drawing apps - but oddly I do not see a tool for drawing circles (ovals) boxes (rectangular) shapes. Am I missing them or are they not included? Thanks for the hard work

    Just saw Paintbook plus in the new releases. Looks nice but at $5 I'd like to know if anyone has tried it. The small file size makes me wonder.

    Before Purchasing the full version try out the free version
    PaintBook 2.0 Free

    I made this app highly efficient, thats why it only requires 270 KB in your hard disk to perform all those advanced functions.

    Default Problems with the paid version

    Hello,
    I've just purchased the full version of PaintBook 2.0. It's a good app but there is a very annoying
    bug. The app quit itself when drawing without saving anything. It appends all the time.
    Could you correct this big bugs, it would be great ?
    Thank's a lot in advance.

    Just some suggestions for the next version.
    1) It would be great, when we import a picture, we can put it where we want on the canevas and set its dimension
    instead of placing it automatically on the top left corner and filling the whole canevas with it.
    2) If the selected tool is Brush or another tools for drawing, when you use pinch to change the zoom factor
    of the canevas, sometime the canevas is modified because it's quite impossible to touch the screen with
    the two fingers exactly in the same time. Could you correct this or create special tool to zoom, move and rotate the whole
    canevas ?

    Best regards...
    Ymer
