    Hi,thank you for all the work you have put into this! Like so many others, I have been waiting for a long while, and am so glad to be able to try it out. It is comparing very favorably to Rough Animator, but with more capabilities.

    Some small (?) suggestions:

    May not be necessary, but can there be a way to resize/customize the grids? More lines, etc. Even to go as far as perspective grids for approaching/receding objects?

    Can the rotation tool be constrained to steps pf rotation, or otherwise is there some way to “know” I have set the canvas back to level? Or am I missing that somewhere in the menus or keyboard?

    I know this is coming in the future, but I am very eager to customize layer colors!

    Rough Animator allows me to capture shapes for custom brushes. I like being able to create a more expressive line that way, but it is more just for fun. Is this a possibility?

    Thanks again! I have just started to explore, I had to upgrade my system first. iMac 2011, High Sierra, 20GB RAM, Wacom Intuos 3.

    Thanks a lot John!

    Customized grids including some perspective functionality is something we want to include. But it will be after the alpha stage where a lot of functionality is prioritised higher. It is a good idea, and I think we could do it in a natural way so it won’t clutter up the simplicity of Animation Paper.

    Rotation tool in steps: If you use shortcuts < and > it will rotate in steps of 15°. You can always reset your view (no rotation and 100% zoom) by hitting 0. Other shortcuts to know about is the numpad number keys: You can use them as compass directions, so 8 is north (no rotation), 9 is rotated towards north east, 6 is east, and so on.

    Yes custom layer colors are coming very soon. Alpha 4 or 5.

    Custom brushes are not possible at the moment. We plan to do a brush system for the next major release (v6.0).

    Thanks for taking the trouble of updating your system for Animation Paper. I hope you think it is worth it.

    Thank you! I found those keyboard commands and that realy helped. I am loving animation paper so far. I appreciate all the hard work you put into it!

    I would be grateful, if it was possible to implement a horizontal timeline.

    A few others have mentioned that too, Tengus. Thanks for letting me know. Some people actually love the vertical way of the traditional exposure sheet. But anyway, I have it on my list as an option for future versions.
