# Agreed. I would really like to see selection/transform/cropping tools!! It's really annoying having to go back and forth between programs just for something so simple. Even MS Paint does easy cropping nowadays. I'm sure Black Ink can do much better. :P
# More layers would be nice as well, and the ability to name them. My graphic designer friend is having a fit over "WHAT?! ONLY EIGHT?!" Eight seems like such an arbitrary number anyway, especially since the Layers panel extends all the way down the screen. It looks like it's obviously intended for far more layers support. (Pretty please?)
# Lastly, I'm no stranger to the technical (I've been doing technical support for 6 years), but the Controllers interface is really intimidating. The Math functions in particular freak my brain out and I just have no idea what does what in order to really modify the brushes to my liking.
I know you have a listing in the forum about what controller does what, but stuff like "Returns the fractional value of the input. 0.5 returns 0.5, 1.5 returns 0.5, 2.5 returns 0.5" really doesn't help me understand what using this will actually do to my brushes. I would like to see a more intuitive way to explain these, perhaps by tooltip that you hover over to find. Perhaps something as simple as, after the technical explanation, "use this to create X effect with the brush".
It's really unfortunate that the Controllers panel is so unintuitive; I feel like I'm missing out on half the program without understanding how the variables affect the brush.
Overall though, I love where this program is headed. Keep up the good work and keep squashing those bugs!
