    I have played with this product off and on for several years but usually give it up because I can not read the pallets since the type is so small, Is there any way to make it bigger?

      Hello Richard,

      Thank you for the suggestion! Currently there is no way to increase the size of the UI. We have passed your suggestion on to the product team for their consideration, but in the meantime a potential workaround is to lower your display resolution to simulate a larger interface.

    Unless I am missing something this latest version still has no indication of the progress of applying any of the excellent painting styles when converting my photos.

    The end icon representation gets shown in the right hand panel but I have no idea how close I am to achieving that.

    A percentage bar would be a great addition to indicate whether you are 0% through to 100% complete.

    Whilst I accept that sometimes you might want to stop the painting process because you are happy with the result I never know if the process is still running or how close I am to completing the conversion.

    Fantastic program BTW.
