On most cards, simply choosing a drawing tool, the pencil for
example, an image is created by the act of drawing. The dimensions of
the image fills the window.
Or the act of dragging with a drawing tool in a handler has this same
effect of creating its own drawing space. If I open a new blank stack
and run the following handler:
choose the pencil tool
drag from 100,100 to 300,300
choose the browse tool
This gives me a line, as expected.
But if I first import an image (a jpg for example) and run the above
What is there about an existing image that causes this behavior?
(I can recover the ability to drag and draw by first creating a blank
image, setting its rect to the screenRect and then running the above
handler. I guess what surprises me is that Run Rev loses its
forgiving behavior of creating an image to draw into if there is an
existing image already present.)
