Hello, Devin!

As confirmed above the International HyperCard Users Group estimated there were 10,000 active HyperCard users worldwide in 2002. Is LC anywhere near that number? Maybe. And if maybe not, why not? A truly successful LC should have been able to attract the 10,000 HC users worldwide and additionally the group of dedicated LC users. Maybe 10,000 of those too? Then we are 20,000? And if not, why not? What magic was lost along the road? HC was the winner. Where is it now? My one is in my Mac, always at hand. 10,000-1=9,999. Im still here, asking for an easier access to LC.  If the authoritative guide for converting HyperCard stacks to LiveCode still is Jacque’s tutorial at https://www.hyperactivesw.com/mctutorial/rrtutorialtoc.html, why not elaborate it to the tool, the app needed to make HC easily portable to LC and thereby accessible "to the rest of us" again? Anybody takes the challenge?

As far as I know, LC includes all the scripted paint commands that HC had, and adds native color besides. The stacks I've imported that used painting commands worked with few changes, mostly only needing to slow them down due to LC's faster engine and more modern CPUs.

The OP wants to emulate MacPaint, so image size limitations probably won't be an issue.

"That can't be done" wins always, because the only limit for LC is the sky
(more exactly, sadly, the sky below the 65535-limit for all coordinates).

But there's a lot of features that are not done with LC's bitmap objects.
Even in a comparison with the paint features of HC some are missing (which
of course can be done, because the limit ...).
