    I am trying Painter 2017 and viewed your tutorial on how to create palette drawers. You start with “nested” palettes. I cannot get palettes to nest, i.e., they always are independent and retain their own header bar with palette drawer button. How do you get palettes to “nest” or be linked together so that only the first one has a header bar and palette drawer button?

    I noted also in trying the new Painter that it still has the ugly behavior so that if you use a blender brush and swipe it to the outside the canvas boundary it brings the color “black” back onto the canvas when you reverse the stroke back onto the canvas. Also if you use a blender brush across a selection boundary it still picks up the paint from the non-selected layers below and brings it into the selected area. Is there anyway to get around these flaws?
