    I’m trialling Painter 20/20 and watching a tutorial. The interface on the tutorial bears no resemblance to the interface on my download. How can I get that interface on this trial version?

      Hello Patrick,

      You can change your workspace (also called your palette arrangement) by going to Window > Layout and selecting which arrangement you would like. You can also customize your workspace to include different palettes, palette positioning, and interface buttons.

    Thanks Aaron for another good tutorial but I must comment also that your videos do not display the same format (if that is the correct expression) display as in the past. The small screen videos do not display the top tool bar etc. and the full screen does cut off at times, this has not been the case in previous Painter tuts. prior to 2020. I use W10 and Nvida 1060 and a 40″tv screen for monitor which works perfectly apart from Painter vids. these days/
