Thanks for your questions. Here’s my answers…
1. Yes, we are trying to not have a lot of preference settings. So far it has made more sense to have any settings in the menu or directly in the interface if it doesn’t complicate the UI. Actually, in the latest version we have removed the preferences menu item completely. It might come back later if needed though.
2. You guessed it 🙂 This area is for scribbling notes, do charts and not least plan dialogue with phonemes, drawn mouth shapes etc.
3. Yeah, right now it is just filling the frame regardless of how big/small the imported image is. We will implement a way to adjust imported images easily. For now I suggest, you just add more space around your image before importing – then your reference drawing/image will show up smaller.
Let me know if you have further comments or questions!
