Waaaait, I know in India is different - this is not India, ok? "when in Rome, do as the Romans do", remember?
It is quite simple - you write USEFUL information ON TOPIC, if you want to add something and your post is last one just edit it - there is no need to add new ones. This isnt rocket science, those are pretty simple rules that would help to everybody not interested in prices of slow internet connection in India and your other personal achievements that include using link that was working for everybody except from you. If you're not sure about something - no need to mention it. If I would start to write about things that I am not sure of then I would overtake internet. Lets keep to what we know - how about that?
Please man - why you have to write so much useless repetitive stuff? Yeah, yeah - I know you want to help - but you will not if one useful information is hidden in some colorful stories. It is so frustrating again to enter the forum and see you making a conversation with... yourself.
All that reminds me...

I am understating that each persion has differernt perceptions and I am understanding that everybody has different culture and body language.
I will try my best to adjust with you all.
But I am not understanding about what spamming you are talking about???

.....suggestion is no comments on perceptions and spamming further.It will make the forum Offtopic.....

Body language and perception on internet forum???
And again two posts in a row - you truly dont know what spamming is...

I leave you so you can discuss it further with yourself. Have fun - I tried. You're lucky I am not moderator.

@Neuzumi,I have no idea what you want to convey.
It was necessary for me to mention that link works correctly and Internet connection was down before,just because,in my earlier comments I had mentioned that the link did not worked at all,just to avoid any confussion.

Your last two posts indicate that you instead want to spam the thread.

Go to page no. 13.
Everyone is discussing about problems with Krita on windows.
So there should not be a problem with anyone if I discuss problems with Krita on Windows 8.It's a good thing to report as a bug on KDE Bug website,but at the same thing,its not a bad thing to report a bug here in this thread.

@krita developers and Valevirik,

Today, I found that after using Windows troubleshoot compatibility settings which makes krita to run with XP/Vista/7 settings,krita works with 100 * 100 pixels canvas size with mouse or finger touch but does not recognise wacom penabled stylus.

I have already filled a bug:
Bug no. 317368

Is there a problem if I use Krita on a virtual machine? color problems maybe?

I'm using Krita on a virtual machine and it works fine.

It isn't windows specific - but I dont want to start new thread just for short question. I was recently doing some inking under both windows and Linux and I found myself jumping between few brushes. The thing is if I choose eraser and then come back to brush I am inking with it has every time size set to default and I have to adjust it each time. Is there a way for Krita to remember sizes of recently used brushes? At least those favorites in right click menu? That would help me dramatically.

(btw, anything new in windows development? ;))

If you use the / key to switch between the current and previous preset, the custom size will be retained.

+ 1 for preserving brush size. '/' is cool, but it would be better if all brushes had it. I found mysefl constantly resizing brushes, when using many at once.

hm... maybe if we make a sort of brush preset history. It would be confusing, I guess if the brush size got changed permanently, or just during the whole session for a particular preset.

Thanks, didnt knew '/' trick and it will help - not resolving whole problem (as I am using few brushes at the time) but will come handy.

I was thinking about remembering sizes set for brushes chosen as favorites in the right click menu ONLY. Choosing from brush menu would still give default size. If those could be save with a project file that would be something - one could continue work right away after loading project file without having to set anything.

Going crazy - adding multiple times THE SAME brush to that right click menu but with different sizes would be crazy cool. It would make very easy making set of brushes with the same behavior just different, fixed size.

I think lately happened something that is worth of mentioning. Again - maybe not the best place for it but somehow I feel like it is.

Lately Adobe changed whole distribution and selling model to its new and revolutionary (wink wink) Creative Cloud. Customers generally didn't applaud that change - sure that you could find few kids here and there screaming "AWESOME!" with heart icons but hey - not everybody has to be smart.
Why I am mentioning this on Krita's forum? Because of this whole "software rental" nonsense by Adobe people are slowly looking what alternatives are out there. On Polish forum Krita was mentioned quite a few times, it is clear that it is becoming more and more popular. That is a good thing! However there is always same thing appearing in comments when it comes to Krita - "check it on Linux because on Windows it is rather buggy still..."...

Honestly - at this point I dont know whats better - focusing on Linux version and leaving Windows version behind, hoping that finally Windows will loose dominant position on market, or maybe focusing a bit more on Windows version. I do understand that you guys (devs) are not a group that would like windows, know windows deeply and finally enjoy it. But I do think that making new builds for windows would pay when it comes to Krita popularity - specially now when Adobe is introducing its new system and people are not happy about it.
It doesn't even have to be very often but would be good to see some new build for Win now and then, you know. I would be happy with the last build but it is hanging every few seconds for like two seconds and then it allows me to work again. Impossible to use it productively. Please kindly let us know whats going on on windows front, is it still even concern of devs? I am by no means whining - I do have Linux version of Krita always at hand. Just wondering what about Windows - sometimes it is simply pain in the **** to log out of Windows to do something in Krita and then again come back to Windows for further tweaking. Constant rebooting isnt really helping when it comes to time effectiveness ;)

@Nezumi: I see... I wonder how's that decission going to impact in Adobe's market.

About the Windows version, I know what it feels having to reboot to change to another app. It's definitely a good idea to keep it up to date, however your post made me think a bit about it...

Let's pretend piracy doesn't exist, SAI has became the weapon of choice for many digital illustrators, and many amateurs prefer it over PS or Painter, still, they rely on PS for tasks SAI is not suited for, i.e. color space conversions, color curves tweaking, adding texts and vectors and general digital filter applying, now, the Linux versions of Krita or GIMP are both frankly superior to SAI in many feautures at this point, but as they require to install Linux most people won't use them. Sure, Krita and GIMP have Windows versions for free too, but why won't Windows digital artists use them?

In the case of Krita it's usability; the first thing (in windows) to fix should be the lag and freezing of the app, as it is the first impression the user will get, I mean, downloading a 151MB installer for a painting app, only to find out it freezes every 3 strokes is a bit discouraging. Yeah, all the new features for the Linux version are cool and having them in the Windows versions would attract many users, but if the software has heavy usability problems, then all the effort put into the other features becomes meaningless. I would take a look at Mypaint developement, Windows version lacks all the amazing features of the last Linux version, but it has the minimum needed and it's highly stable, Mypaint is the only graphics app that never has crashed on me neither in Linux or Windows, and this, I guess, its because the first and main focus (aside from the obvious Mypaint nature) is usability, as stated in the project's wiki.

Now, don't get me wrong, I understand Krita's internal structure is very different from Mypaint's or GIMP's, not too long ago there was little dicussion in this thread about why there wasn't a standalone Krita installer, but in the end results speak for themselves.

I guess it's somehow a vicious circle in the end: Most digtal artists still work under Windows and attracting them to Krita would require to offer a fully stable and featured version, as bringing them to Linux is a bit unlikely at this time, however, developing a fully stable and featured Krita version requires having more hardware and developers, which takes more money, money that is mostly in the Windows-based digital artist community, and attract it's users would require a fully stable...

I must say that the latest version of the window build of Krita ( Krita 2.6.8.8 standalone from there : http://www.kogmbh.com/download.html ) is rather impressive, while not yet as good as its linux counterpart obviously and a few quirks, in comparison to the old build i tried before the improvement in speed and stability have been very noticable, at least on my not-so-good system.

Thank you very much for your work

In my last post I was trying in the most delicate way possible to ask whats up with some new windows build ;). Perhaps too delicate ;)
Lets try direct approach this time around:

Any news about some new windows build?

If you just get rid of that freezing every 5 seconds it would rock.
